Gifts From Nisha

Hello Beauties,

I had won a giveaway at Nisha's Blog, see here

& the giveaway gifts arrived long time back, but the lazy me took so long to post it! Sorry Nisha

The gifts are awesome! For a day or two I just kept peeping into the box to admire the stuff! 
Nisha, had packed the stuff so beautifully & though she had trouble sending the nail polishes(the courier people had issues with polishes & liquidy products), she made sure some way all the stuff that she had promised reached me. Thanks a lot Nisha :))

Here's what I got!

International Giveaway! Eid Celebrations with Henna Kit(Mehendi)giveaway

Hey Beauties,

Eid-Ul-Fitr is most likely gonna be celebrated in India on August 20th 2012 which is like a week away, Eid-ul-Fitr comes after 30 days of  the holy fasting month Ramadan.What better way could I celebrate it with you all! I'm going host a giveaway where you could win a Henna Kit(Mehendi).

Mehendi is synonymous with festivals & weddings in India. Indian weddings are incomplete without the Mehendi night celebrations. A night before Eid, all of our family members get together & apply mehendi on each other's hands or sometimes hire a henna artist to do it for us.

In the recent times, applying henna as temporary tattoo has become a trend all over the world. Celebrities like Katie Perry, Vanessa Hudgens, Katie Holmes & others have been spotted with these henna tattoos.

So here's how the Henna Kit looks like

This giveaway is sponsored by Melanie Ooi, a great henna artist based at Portland-Oregon who runs Blue Lotus Henna.

Melanie Ooi is such a great henna artist, you should see her work & you'll be amazed. 

A little about her:  Melanie has been involved in art since childhood- focusing on pen and pencil illustration, oil pastels and photography. Working with henna was a natural progression of her line work and enjoyment of working with people.

Travels through India, Morrocco and Turkey had their influence on her perspective and from there her personal style has taken on its own direction, mixing in art nouveau and Chinese motifs along the way. These outside influences make Melanie's henna artistry unusually refined and extremely distinctive.

Apart from enjoying her own style she is also open to challenges, welcoming her clients ideas and any images they bring to her to copy or work from as a base concept.

Do check her website to see videos & pictures here

P.S  Once you get the prize, please do share pictures of the kit you get so that I can share the picture here(Don't send me back the pictures I'm posting here), it will encourage the sponsor's work & it's a way of appreciating their work & being thankful for sponsoring.
