A word from Katarina Forbes, Artisan Designer & CEO
Boho Vibes, mission is to make women happy.
Our philosophy is Life in Colour or La Vie en Couleur in French. We are inspired by colour, wanting women to live their lives colourfully.
That to us means living your life to the fullest. Not being afraid to stand out and not being afraid to add a pop of colour to your wardrobe.
I began with hope to create a brand that would support and fight hunger and homelessness right here in Canada.
We continue to grow with our dream to make the world better, happier and more colorful.
Are you a dreamer, do you believe in living your life to its fullest? You don’t watch life pass you by from the sidelines, you participate in life and all of its adventures. You live your life on your terms, because is there really any other way to live?
My name is Katalina and I am the owner and face behind BohoVibes. I am an adventure addict who is all about following your dreams, getting the most out of life and inspiring others to do the same. I have always had a creative edge and BohoVibes is my outlet for that energy. I love turning the ordinary into extraordinary, be that in life or in jewelry. Life is an adventure that deserves to be celebrated!
I have always been self driven, determined to create the life that I want to live. After being tired of building other people’s dreams I opened BohoVibes in 2021. At the time I was growing microgreens. Sometime in 2016 I was doing some shopping at the local grocery store and at the check out I couldnt help from spotting a ring on the womens finger just ahead of me. I has asked about it what is was made of, where she go it and the amount she paid for it. Well, She told me it was made from a vintage spoon, she got it from a festival in Coburg, Ontario and had paid $45 for it. OK, NOW! I was determined to figure out how to make one form myself. I was so obsessed with making one of these rings and once I figured it out the current BohoVibes and RealSpirit brand was born.
I love the idea of turning everyday items into jewelry and giving these beautiful items a new life. My jewelry is a celebration of our journeys through life. A piece to remember a special time, place or moment in your life. Let BohoVibes be a part of your journey!
Inside Boho Vibes.
Why I decided to create this brand: let’s be transparent
After a bittersweet decision to move across the country into a new country (Canada), I had a very hard time finding myself; who I am, and who I was meant to be. It was all very new to me, and the adjustment was not easy.
Anyone that knows me well, knows I am the queen on side hustles. I worked 2-3 jobs, sold crafts & clothing online, dog sat, and more for additional income. This allowed me to live a comfortable lifestyle. Although, it was very stressful, time-consuming, and exhausting.
I told myself with this move, I would relax. I would try to enjoy my own time & find things I really enjoy doing rather than work myself into the ground. I decided to take the side hustle I enjoyed most to fruition. With this, I gathered my inner creative junkie, and Boho Vibes brand was born.
I hope to make many products that people can purchase & enjoy, all while I enjoy the process of creating them.
In addition, I hope to keep a blog going about my journey to leave everything for a new adventure. Maybe for my own benefit, and maybe to inspire someone who’s hoping to do the same.
Any purchase, like, share, or recommendation means the world to me as I continue to grow my hobby into a lifestyle.
Peace, Love and Light. -Katalina
