BuDhaGirl launches our most awaited color ever…Champagne. What other color could represent the ultimate glamour derived from nature? It is no wonder that when Dom Pérignon discovered champagne (by mistake), he said: “I have tasted the stars.”

Lately I have been trying to take stock of myself, and when I catch myself doing that I stop, reign back the automatic voice in my head and I say to myself: “Jessica, if that’s what you want to do then you are going to clear your mind, step back and simply be for a few moments.”
Confession: I have the maximalist gene. It is in my DNA and this gene has been further strengthened by environment and circumstance.

Happy National Dog Day! Today is a day to give all dogs the recognition they so deserve.
WHAHHHHH!!!! Another school cycle begins.
And as all cycles in life, depending on the stage of life we are in, that’s how we feel about children going back to school…am I making sense?
In thinking about happiness I began to look at it as I would cooking a wonderful dinner…So what are the ingredients to be happy?
When you were little did you play at being someone else? Like your favorite super-hero, a princess, or a cowgirl? You had fun, right? And, at the end of playtime you went back to being who you were.
Why is it that many times the word happy makes us precisely the opposite…not happy? I suppose it is because happiness, the result of being happy, is something we are a bit scared of.
“It is always the simple that produces the marvelous.” - Amelia Barr
Today, modern life is begging us to simplify; to go back to the “simpler things in life.”
How do you choose to live your life? Debit or Credit? Are you pleased with the yield and do you feel safe with the investments that you have made in yourself? Or, do you have to tweak a little?
Doing things is leading a well life. There is wellness in doing. There is great merit in doing things in the service of others. Doing at the end of each day allows you to be at peace when you lay your head down to sleep.
The universe tends to work in marvelous ways pairing people and places in order for them to become friends, grow their businesses and try to make a better world together. This is the case between the incredible Elizabeth Mast’s Talulah & HESS and BuDhaGirl.
Whatever happened to turning the lights on and looking in the mirror? Whatever happened to self-reflection and a sense of decorum? Whatever happened to having a sense that it is not alright to look and do whatever you want in life…especially at work, in an airplane, in a restaurant, or at the gym??
“If you always do what interests you, at least one person is pleased.” - Katherine Hepburn We must live each and every day as if it were our very last; and part of living that way is working/doing something that we love every day.
Don’t you wish at times you could push a re-set button, un-ring the bell if you will?

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.
