Real Art (thats not permanent!)

    Tonight our family was invited to one of many events that an indian wedding consists of! Its called Mehndi/Sangeet. Traditionally it is the night before the wedding at which the bride is covered with henna from her hand to her arms & her feet to the knees.
    What i am always so fascinated by are these men/women that do the Mehndi (henna). They are so intricate and precise all while being so fast. That is what you called an underrated artist. So today i decided to share a few pictures i took of the woman that did mine in about literally 20 seconds!! Amazing


Its so detailed!

**Now that was a little tit-bit of my culture that i shared with you. I would love to hear about your traditions and culture too! so don't be shy to spread the knowledge! ;)

Bring out the sun i am ready!

      Ahhhh!! These accessories are like the summer cool breeze, you so greatly appreciate in the hot scorching sun!(even though New Yorkers have barely seen the sun this summer.) Bright & bold is what you see in every store window. 
   These are some of the things that caught my eye when i was walking around the city shopping, longing for summer. Fuchsia's, electric blues & yellow's are what i want to wear all summer long.                                  
    I think these finds would brighten up the summer even more!

Accessories are a Man's best friend!

     In my opinion a man can be just as stylish & chic as a woman! For some reason it is such a No No if a man is well dressed and well accessorized! Well not to me, pick one accessory that blows your mind. Pow! Pow! 
     I Love a put together man at the bar who pulls out a surprisingly sleek wallet and picks up the tab. Not only will a woman(or a man) be instantly attracted to you, she(or he) will appreciate & admire your taste!

** Listen up boys! Classic with a twist is what everyone desires, we all want to be kept on our toes and always guessing. Surprise them with your chic wallet, or your super sexi watch. They will always come back for seconds!

Jewelry Galore!

   I LOVE jewels i reckon that is something that runs in my family. It has also been passed down to me!
   Not only does my mom have beautiful vintage jewelry she even design's pieces that she adds to her collection (That i get to borrow ;) ). I can appreciate one of a kinds unique jewelry that can make you feel like a million bucks whether it costs a $$ million or $10..
   You know all those quirky little unique habits each of us have that sets us apart? Thats what each piece of jewelry is for an outfit!! These are some of my new finds that i am fascinated with. Each one of the jewels has a different feel to it. I appreciate the art and the craftsmanship of each piece ... Enjoy!
