Our Story

Listen, I’m not into cheesy stuff (maybe just a little bit). I’m not saying a bowl can heal your heart. But this I know for sure (Oprah moment) – surrounding ourselves with beautiful intentional objects can keep us centered and connected to what’s important.

I started @breakfastcriminals Instagram page to post photos of my superfood breakfasts (açaì bowls!) in the OG heart bowl when it was the only thing that excited me first thing in the morning. I was re-finding myself and figuring out the whole self-love thing after a heartbreak, losing my visa and work permit, my job and my apartment. All at once.

Somehow, it turned into a global self-love movement that takes shape of mindful mornings. After hundreds of comments asking me where to buy the @heartbowl, I produced 2,000 of them.


Taking the feedback from the first heart bowl, I took a year to produce the updated design – it's smaller, sturdier, cozier to hold and in 3 colors (red, green and white).

In the meantime, I partnered with Harper Kennedy Ceramics and @iamalysoncharles to sell 5 limited edition handmade bowls, and 100% of profits went to the incredible Bumi Sehat foundation committed to every baby entering this world with love.

I’m SO excited to have the heart bowl available for you to buy as a single bowl or as a bundle for yourself, for a friend who needs it, for your family ♥️
