Buddha Babe

I have a love affair with Buddhist statues & paraphanelia.  I have them all over my house, to my very devout Christian mother's chagrin.  (I'm rebellious to the core.)  Here is a vintage one that my grandmother gave me a long time ago, it's one of my favorites.  Just as I'm writing this, it just struck me--my grandmom has a few Buddha statues in her home as well.  It must be her influence. I guess if an apple does fall far from the tree, it probably ends up closer to another tree. :)


Oh, and the hair is still straight--washing it this weekend though. I have to admit, this is one of the first times I've actually REALLY enjoyed the straight hair. Could I be getting over the whole "big hair" thing?  Things that make you go hmmmmm....


P.S. I think I'm going to take a more "photo blog"-ish approach with this blog, with some fashion stuff thrown in. I've always had a love affair with photography, and fairly recently upped the ante and bought myself a DSLR & a couple of lenses and am taking photography classes. So be prepared to see lots of gratuitous pictures of mine here. Hope you guys enjoy.


  1. LOL! My mom would have a fit too if she saw a lot of Buddha statues in my house. They are rather cute though. Love the hair as always!

  2. Your hair is gorgeous. What do you to it when it's not out?

  3. Thanks ladies!

    Cali--I wear my hair in braidouts mostly. If it's straight, It's usually up in a bun or ponytail.

  4. I love Buddha statues! They bring a sort of calmness to a space.

    That's so funny that you said that you want your blog to be more of a photo blog :-) My blog started out with hair on the mind but now it has evolved into a "life through photography" blog after I purchased my slr. You really start to see things differently literally through a new lens.

    I look forward to seeing your photos and I love the blog!

    Ps Your hair looks gorgeous!!

  5. I can't wait to get my own place once I graduate from college because I recently discovered Buddhism, and it just evokes a calming energy. Of course, my mother would probably frown upon them since she is also very Christian. But it'll be my house, right? LOL.

    Have a great day, Nik! Maybe I'll see you around ATL one day since we both live here :)



I read and appreciate all comments & questions!
