BuDhaGirl Moms: Meet Michelle

As Mother’s Day approaches, everyone on the BuDhaGirl team is honoring their mothers, and all they have taught them about style, mindfulness and living an inspired life. 

Today, Twyla, our marketing associate, recognizes her mother, Michelle.

My mother, Michelle, is a creative genius. From the business concepts she creates to the unique ensembles she wears, my mom is always ahead of her time. 

It is impossible to address all of the ways in which my mom has influenced me, but there are a few ways that stand out in my mind.

STYLE: My mom is my style guru. Whether we are scavenging through vintage clothing, picking out office stationary or planning a holiday dinner party, her sense of style is consistent and unshakeable. My mom mixes designer pieces with vintage discoveries, sets an elaborate dinner table like nobody’s business, and approaches each action throughout her day with a sense of character and sophistication.

ECO-WARRIOR: If it weren’t for my mom, I wouldn’t be the chemical-avoiding, vegetable-eating, animal lover I am today. From a young age, I was encouraged by my mother to be aware of my environment and to respect everyone and everything in it. Some of my fondest childhood memories revolve around helping my mother rehabilitate injured animals and plant seeds in the garden.

TRAVEL: As I was growing up, my mom was studying aromatherapy in France. Several times a year, she would venture to the land of wine, cheese and perfume, and during the summer, she would take me with her. Thanks to her, I learned classic French style tips, how to navigate the City of Lights like a native Parisian, and I fell in love with art and history.
