Hello! Yesterday I did henna for a mehndi party in Livonia, Michigan and wedding henna designs for a lovely bride. I worked with the bride on her arm and feet designs via email since she lives in Georgia. She did come into the henna salon for a wedding henna trial and consultation when she travelled to Michigan earlier this year. I was very happy with her henna design choices. Here are the pictures of her wedding henna :

Ladies *(and gentlemen if there are gentlemen that peruse this blog), I once again have found an AMAZING pair of shoes from my favorite vintage shop: Dear Golden here in Ypsilanti. Some of you may remember these shoes I bought for a wedding. I now am IN the wedding of a great friend and we were tasked with finding our own bridesmaid dress, shoes etc. and I was jazzed for the opportunity. The only perimeters was it needed to be a pastel sundress. Any pattern, brand or color choice was up to us as long as it fell into the pastel/sundress category. When my friend told us the requirements my brain was like: “You mean, I get to be apart of your big day and you’re giving me an excuse to buy a dress I’ll actually WEAR AGAIN??!?… OKAY!”
Soooo. what did I do? Of course I directed myself to contact my go-to lady team of “people who let me buy their lovely items” : THREADBEAT and Dear Golden . Rebecca Tanner-Russell , the wonder woman behind THREADBEAT created a beautifully detailed sundress for me to wear in the wedding. (You’ll have to wait for pictures of that) After the dress arrived and fit perfectly, I found the necklace I’ll be wearing at a cute resale shop in Grand Rapids for $6!
After that, I set my sights on Dear Golden for my shoes. Shoes are always tough for me to buy for a few reasons:
1. I don’t like to spend a lot of money on shoes
2. I need COMFORTABLE shoes
3. I would like them to be well made
4. I don’t like to support mass made shoes
5. I’d like them to be somewhat stylish
(Do you see how #s 2-5 contradict with #1??? yeah, so now you know why it’s tough)
Annnyways, all of this to say why I am very ,very happy with my new (to me) Italian leather janes
YAY! I’ll post pictures of the complete outfit when they all come together in a perfect harmony.
For bridal packages, a free bridal henna sample is always included. If the bride chooses to, we meet at my salon few weeks ahead of time for a face to face to discuss the final bridal design and to a free bridal henna sample to showcase the stain she will be getting for her wedding. The sample is usually just a simple henna design, like one her bridesmaids can choose to have done at her mehndi party.
Here is a sample for a bride getting married in Livonia, Michigan.

Hello all. Here’s a picture of the henna demonstration I did for the Greenroom in Ann Arbor. It tied into the series we’re doing on Our Creative Soul.
It’s design took about 20 minutes to complete.
Hello! Long time no talk, eh? Well, I apologize for my recent absence – lots of positive things have been happening that have kept me quite busy! Anyways, here is a wedding henna design that incorporates my two favorite things : flowers and paisleys . I hope you enjoy this wedding henna as much as I do.
Here are the photos for the Indian henna party in Traverse City, Michigan. It was a fusion wedding- so there were lots of people unfamiliar with henna which made it fun for me to explain the art of henna to them. Also, I really love Traverse City and eating at Amical – one of my favorite restaurants.
