henna tattoos

Hi guys,

What an amazing weather and great start to the week. Let's hope it stays like this for a very long time.

Yesterday I had another opportunity to work with an amazingly talented henna artist Pavan (who btw happens to be the Guinness Record Holder for the World's Fastest Henna Artist). 
We did a great new concept for her up and coming look book (published later this year across the country) but I thought I would share it with you guys too as I just LOVE the tattoos.

I fell in love with them when I lived in India but henna tattoos aren't all about the typical bridal Bollywood look (although we all love those too). 

Do you remember Chanel catwalk collection 2010? Thats what I'm talking about. Obviously there are plenty of transparent ready-to-wear tatts (some of them better that the others) but you cannot replace the authentic henna ones. Pavan does it her way - combining East and West. 

She did tons of fabulous work already- fashion shows, editorials and projects with the Sugarbabes and Alesha Dixon. 

So, if you ever fancy spicing up your party outfit - Pavan's your girl.

a seven day snapshot #6

Hello gorgeous people! 

The sun is out..!  
Hence, I woke up really early this morning to catch up on everything. First of all my last few weeks in pics - a bit longer than usual today. I had quite a few shoots, a bit of travelling, Euro fun in Polska and my rehearsals have started. I had a beautiful time with my mommy and daddy and enjoyed some proper summer. 

How was your last few weeks? 

Lots of sunny love xxx

London Olympic Ceremonies 2012

I know - I haven't been around lately. But I have a very good reason, peeps. I'm rehearsing for the Paralympics Opening Ceremony. It is so much fun, so many rehearsals and it's very emontional. I love it. I'm not allowed to talk about it in much detail. All very top secret, of course. But stay tuned... 
In the meantime, all the volunteers have just found out that we can all watch the last Technical Rehearsal for the Opening Ceremony, which is on the 27th of June. How exciting! 

Lets do this, London- the world is watching :-)
