In our attempt to answer the question we often run into "What kind of a woman is a BuDhaGirl?" we came up with this series- 'A BuDhaGirl in Action' to share with you the different types of women that we can proudly say are part of our tribe. These women are all different but the common thread shared by them and what makes them BuDhaGirls is that they are all intelligent, aware, curious and compassionate.
To start off this series we wanted to introduce you to a favorite BuDhaGirl artist and friend Stephanie Lessing. She was born in Paris, grew up on the French Riviera (yes, she is super chic!) and studied Fine Arts and Photography in Monaco and Florida. She is a dedicated wife and mother. A caring and sweet daughter and sister. She is a selfless friend, a cooking master, and really knows how to enjoy and be in the present. She is a fabulous listener and is really great at not passing judgment. She keeps a beautiful home with a garden filled with the prettiest roses and sets a lovely table. She paints with passion and simply cannot tell a lie. She also has a talent for finding the best accessories and knows the best techniques for eye make-up, which is ideal because she has the prettiest eyes and adores eye contact.
Her BuDhaGirl obsession are the gold all weather bangles (in size small because her wrists are tiny!) which she loves combining with other gold bracelets. She loves that the bangles are light and make no noise while she paints. She is a lady of style indeed. See her beautiful paintings here. Don't you wish you were friends with her? We are so lucky to count on her as a friend.
If you know of some great BuDhagirls you admire and that we need to feature let us know!
