Zen: Safari + BuDhaGirl Giveaway

Hey everyone! Today I have an outfit post plus a fun giveaway for the month. I have a lot to cover, so let’s begin.

Before I get to the giveaway, let me start by saying how much I am loving this scarf as mentioned in this post here for Spring — such a pretty color and super soft material to the touch. It was perfect to wear over this jumper I got last year, but didn’t get a chance to feature on here. Whenever I wear it though, reminds me of going on a Safari. =D

Going back to the scarf, I’ve been a bit picky as of late on types of scarves that I like and length has been one of the things I look for when choosing one. I love to wrap the scarf twice around and still be able to have enough length to cover my torso. So I was pretty happy to find that this scarf had the right length, color and light enough to wear for Spring for those in-between temps.

Ok, so now what do you get when you mix spirituality with fashion? Well, you’d get a new line called BuDhaGirl, inspired by co-founders Jessica Jesse and Susie Hoimes, who both wanted jewelry to serve a purpose than just vanity — a place to store daily inspirational messages.

To bring the spirituality to their jewelry line, they have these special “Reminders” — small, decorated objects for you to place inside any of their Core jewelry (like the Core Cuff, for example — another fave). Each object represents something to bring your mind back into balance and focus.

Anyways, when a fellow blogger and friend, Dara, reached out to me and introduced me to the jewelry line to see if I would be interested in doing a giveaway, I was intrigued. After browsing around, I definitely found a few favorites — the Core Cuff as mentioned above and this Temple Chain necklace worn above.

As you can see in the above pic, the Temple Chain is made up of different shapes of links to symbolize the different aspects of our lives. I love that you can wear it long or double it up — very versatile. And if you need a little reminder for the day, go ahead and add one, two or all three of the BuDhaBoys onto the links. They come in sets of three in a choice of color ranges: Neon (for those who like flare), Moss (for the naturalist) and Chica (for the young at heart.)

Also, can I stop and talk about the packaging for a little bit? When I received my box, I was in awe over the lux presentation that I was afraid to even open it. The chain came in a clear container as seen in photo below and the BuDhaBoys in their own clear box as well.

And now, BuDhaGirl has generously offer to give away the Temple Chain AND one of the BuDhaBoy Pendant sets to one lucky winner.
