Are you a Glamola?

Glamola [glam-oh-luh] noun:

A fusion of a glamorous and granola-type of person.

For the woman who loves nature and being outside, but you’d never sleep outside under the stars…
you may be a glamola.
For the woman who loves making healthy meals at home, but also feels right at home at a high-end restaurant or swanky event… you may be a glamola.
For the woman who would choose a Birkin and Birkenstocks…
you, too, maybe a glamola.

I’m a woman who loves eating fresh, functional foods, sitting on the floor, practicing yoga, and traveling the world, but I’d like to think I do it in style.

My mom back in the day. She’s standing in the middle of her parents, two sisters, and brother.
Of course, she is the one in the middle, wearing that amazing black-and-white pattern dress (I wish I could ask her if that was a Marimekko!):

As a young girl, my mother taught me to appreciate the glamorous side of life, but she also taught me to believe in angels, talk to animals, and recycle and reuse everything I can.

Pre-kids, another picture of my very stylish mom on a trip in Mexico:

She sent me on spiritual retreats at 5-star hotels so I could learn the tools for deep inner growth. Those retreats taught me that you do not need to move to the Himalayas and give up modern-day luxuries to have a spiritual experience. It was after one of those retreats that I came up with the term, “Glamola,” to describe myself and all the other women (and some men), who are hybrids; glamorous one day and granola the next, or a mix of both every day!
