Well, hellooooo, dear readers!
When July 4th hits, the days post red, white and blue explosion has me feeling more and more down. Not because I don’t like summer, because I do, and who doesn’t? No, it’s merely due to the looming fact that we probably have a little over, a little less than a month left before school. While there are exciting factors– Thursday Homebar’s, seeing your friends– the idea of school work sends me into a literal tizzy, especially because I feel like I just finished my Comm Law final yesterday.
Nonetheless, my everlasting hatred toward school is not what this is about. While SMUStyle tends to take a vacay during the summer months, I found it important to discuss a new must-have everyone should take into account before the start of the new year: BuDhaGirl Bracelets.
I learned about these babies from Lauren, our social media director. Her high school bff, Elizabeth DeBeer, works for the brand, and they offered to send me a set. I was ecstatic, I’d seen Lauren wear them all the way up her arm in a medley of fun, bright colors and I died for some for myself. You can imagine my face when about a week later I received my package with a cute little box and a bow that tied up nine gold bangles.
SO, they might SEEM like your regular bracelets from the outside, but the message runs much deeper. The ones I received were the All Weather Serenity Prayer Bangles. They’re waterproof AND TSA-proof, flexible and filled with gold dust and BuDhaGirl prayer beads. How inspirational. For all the wannabe yogi’s and zen enthusiasts, this is right up your alley.
But really, get this: the bracelets act as a gateway into meditation. Each morning you put them on one-by-one and set your intentions for the day, very relaxing and putting you in a great headspace. At night, while taking them off, you reflect on your day and take a second to breathe.
For me, it’s my daily reminder to take a deep breath and slow down, while also being the cutest accessory on the market, not a joke, I’ve been wearing mine incessantly. I’m a firm believer in mixing gold/silver/rose gold all day every day, so these fit right into my everyday arm candy. Also, my skin is SUPER sensitive to any weird jewelry, so the fact that I haven’t broken out into my typical rash of eczema from these babies is a godsend.
Because we love BuDhaGirl SO MUCH and want everyone to have a set (I mean, come on, perfect for the boulevard), the company has graciously offered us a promo code, “SMU20” starting July 1. Original pricing starts at $120. Follow them on Insta here to shop more beautiful styles.
Run, don’t walk. I have a feeling you’re going to see BuDhaGirl on every SMU gal this year.
See everyone in a few weeks :)))) omg.
