“Fashion is the mirror of history.” Louis XIV of France
Of course today is a celebration at BuDhaGirl…we love pink! We think pink. We see the world through pink colored glasses, and we feel that everything is coming up PINK roses.
Here’s the BuDhaGirl team showing off the many hues of pink…everything from the most tender flesh-pink to a vibrant Schiaparelli would-kill-for pink. Fred approves (BuDhaKitty).
Blessed be he amongst pink.
Idrees, our rock-star tech and innovation guru is loved by all BuDhaGirls at BDGHQ. He helps us whenever we need a little of his magic to make all our systems work seamlessly.
How can you not?
Happy National Pink Day from all us BuDhaGirls to all you BuDhagirls!
In life we set goals for ourselves, both small and large. Achieving these goals takes discipline, self-control, perseverance, flexibility, and perhaps the most important: resilience.
Jessica: “Happy Father’s Day…I always loved this image of my father with Hemingway…two boys fishing. I think that’s what my dad would have loved to be doing on father’s day…”
Molly: “My dad was a brilliant man with a wonderful (and sometimes bawdy) sense of humor. The most valuable lesson he modeled and taught me was to take things in stride and have what called a “sense of the ridiculous.” Even when things went wildly awry, he taught me to find the humor in it, dust myself off, and move forward. I credit him for my resilience, and I miss him every day.”
Ginger: “The greatest gift from my dad was the knowledge to work on cars. This gave me confidence & independence. Thanks Dad!”
Chloe: “My dad taught me how to speak my mind, give my honest opinion, and not put up with any ones crap.”
Sydney: “My dad is a hard worker with a never give up attitude. I can always go to him for support and advice on anything I do, and I can’t thank him enough.”
Bianca: “Your guiding hand on my shoulder will remain with me forever.” -Unknown
Hawa: “A little girl giggles when she is denied ice-cream by her mother, she knows daddy will get her some later.” -Unknown
Jennifer: “My dad taught me how to appreciate quality time.”
Sarahy: “My dad has a great sense of humor and is always willing to help. He would make fun of you bad haha, but if you ever needed anything he was there.”
Irma: “My dad is the most peaceful/sweet human on this earth.”
Idrees: “My father moved across borders to give his children the education and life that he could never have. I often complained why he moved to India when Kenya was such a beautiful place to leave. But, if it weren’t for him and his bold decisions, I wouldn’t be where I am today. Thank you so much dad!”
Kate: “My dad is so cool. I’m convinced he’s a real life James Bond.”
Diana: “My dad is the most loving, hardworking man I know. A kid at heart with a great sense of humor and super powers.”
Happy Fathers Day to all of the BDG dads!

No matter how old we are, there’s one thing we consider at every age… what will we choose to do with our finite amount of time on this earth? At every age, our answers evolve, but they always reflect what we deem important in life at that moment. As we grow older, our answers are distilled down and become the essence of our purpose.
Many of us are concerned with being efficient. In an effort to save time, we tend to choose what is useful to us. When something is useful, it often helps us get where we want to go - faster. But is the “useful” option always the best option?

A rainbow is not only the perfect intersection of light and water, it’s a metaphor; a metaphor for that moment in which you can finally appreciate the past and what you’ve been through.
