Henna for Men

Never ever had I thought that my love for henna would inspire my own kids! I couldn’t imagine my boys would like the flowery designs I am so fond of. And they don’t. They always ask for something manly. Manly henna… Hmm… I had no idea there really was a market for henna for men. And then I find all these beautiful and very inspirational images.

Henna at a Birthday Party

One of the things I really enjoy about henna business is the fact that clients literally drop into my lap from nowhere! For instance, this lady wanted me to come to her 15 years old daughter’s birthday party. It only took us a couple of messages to exchange and the date was set. The way she had it done was that each guest paid for their henna. Although there is …

The Rose Henna Tattoo

I am an artist. These words are so strange and so exciting! You see, growing up, I never took any art classes. I never thought I was gifted. My friends were a lot more skilled when it came to doodling in notebooks at boring classes. I, myself, grew frustrated while trying to mimic their pretty dainty designs.

Introvert Empowered

Last year I shared this image on my Facebook timeline without giving it any second thought.

The Rabbit Hole

Tall Girl’s Trouble

I truly dislike being in group photos. No, really. I don’t mind the idea of people getting together to take a picture and document an event. I am all for creating special moments and memories.   Being 6 feet tall, I am always tucked in the very back row with people standing right in front of me. So I end up looking for that window between people’s necks. And then, …
