I believe we can have it all… a life filled with purpose, our dream career, a great family life, and a life of freedom to create whatever lifestyle we choose. Life was meant to be lived to the fullest — full of love, fun, passion, exciting experiences and happiness!
I am a big believer that you can create a life you love! It just takes a bit of conscious planning and effort to create that life. You can even choose a life where you travel the world and work from anywhere you want. Yes, it’s possible. Anything is possible.
Flow Living is about a lifestyle. It’s a lifestyle about creating a healthy, balanced life while pursuing our dreams, looking and feeling great, and traveling the world. It’s about creating a life we love and living a life filled with inspiration, purpose, meaning, and also lots of fun. It’s also about living and creating an abundant life… the life we were meant to live.
I am a mother, designer, and an entrepreneur on a mission to create an amazing life for myself and for those around me. Through this website, I’ll take you on my journey where I pursue my dreams of creating a sustainable fashion company, go through my own personal development, and prepare to travel the world. Motherhood does not mean you should give up on your dreams. You can pursue your dreams and travel the world after having children. I’m going to do it and I’ll show you how.
On this website I write about pursuing dreams, personal and spiritual development, entrepreneurship, fashion, healthy living, parenting, sustainability, and travel. I’ll also bring up causes and issues I care about and show you how you can make the world a better place.
I believe we all have dreams inside of us that were meant to be lived! Life is too short to make excuses or postpone our dreams. The time is NOW to step into an amazing life.
You’re here because you have a dream. Let’s journey together to make our dreams a reality. It’s not always easy. It takes commitment, faith, trust, and breaking down a lot of limited beliefs so that you can see the vast abundance the world has to offer you. But I believe that if you can dream it, it can be done! I’ve already made so many of my dreams come true and I know you can too.
I am committed to living my dreams and am paving the way to show you how you can live yours. I’ll take you on a journey where we’ll do some soul searching, world traveling, healthy living, and dream excavating. It’s going to be a lot of fun!
I’m here to help you create an amazing life. Wake up loving life, feeling great, looking amazing, and being inspired to go out into the world to share your gifts with the world! Life was meant to be lived to the fullest! Let nothing come in between you and your dreams! Let’s make it happen! Let’s create a life that truly makes you feel alive and happy!
Why am I passionate about helping you live an amazing life? Because I used to live a life of exhaustion, working non-stop, and just going, going, going. Working late nights, weekends… there was no end to the madness and the unhealthy lifestyle. You know the hampster wheel… and to achieve what? Prestige? Wealth? Success? What was I striving for? At the end of the day, I was just not happy.
I’ve been through what many of you have also been through or are going through… feelings of unhappiness, unfulfilling jobs, depression, inadequacy, relationship conflicts, and an unhealthy lifestyle. I’ve been overworked, underpaid, and even hospitalized twice with pneumonia for working myself to the bone. I was not about to let that happen a third time. I’ve pulled more all-nighters than anyone I know, and that’s not what I wanted to be most proud of. I’m creating a new life.
Through this journey I have learned a lot about living a life of balance and I firmly believe a healthy lifestyle is the most important gift you can give yourself. A healthy lifestyle is not just about eating healthy and exercising, although they are very important for a healthy life. A healthy lifestyle is also about getting enough sleep, giving yourself proper self-care, healing relationships, overcoming self-doubt, finding something you are passionate about, living with purpose, being excited about life, having fun, finding time for hobbies, spending time with friends and family, and doing all the things you’ve wanted to do but either didn’t give yourself the permission to do or haven’t been able to get there yet. Don’t worry, we’ll get there, step by step.
I’m here to help you create a life you love … through inspiring examples, showing you what I do, and writing about things I’ve learned along the way. If everyone lived an amazing life, conflicts would end and we would all be making the world a better place… that is one of my dreams. So, look around and say hello! I’m glad you found this site!

Pursuing Your Dreams
Dreams are how our soul communicates with us what we really, really, really want to do with our lives at the deepest level. Many people live their lives doing jobs they don’t like just to make a living and put these dreams aside. I believe dreams need to be rediscovered, nurtured, and cultivated in order to give birth to new ideas and a happy, amazing life.
Dreams were not meant to be lived, no matter how silly your dream may sound! Your happiness and your dreams are gifts to the world! Here are some articles to help you think about your dreams and about the life you want to create for yourself.
