Henna/mehendi tattoos

Standard

Henna is a flowering plant used since antiquity to dye skin, hair, fingernails, leather and wool. The name is also used for dye preparations derived from the plant, and for the art of temporary tattooing based on those dyes.

Henna powder

For skin dyeing, a paste of ground henna (either prepared from a dried powder or from fresh ground leaves) is placed in contact with the skin from a few hours to overnight. Henna stains can last a few days to a month depending on the quality of the paste, individual skin type, and how long the paste is allowed to stay on the skin.

Henna kit

The Night of the Henna was celebrated by most groups in the areas where henna grew naturally: Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Christians and Zoroastrians, among others, all celebrated marriages by adorning the bride, and often the groom, with henna. It was also used for celebrations as birthdays, circumcision or religious one such as: Eid, Diwali or others. When there was joy, there was henna.

Henna was regarded as having “Barakah”  blessings, and was applied for luck as well as joy and beauty. Brides typically had the most henna, and the most complex patterns, to support their greatest joy, and wishes for luck. The fashion of  “Bridal Mehendi-Henna tattooing”  in Pakistan, Northern Libya and in North Indian Diasporas is currently growing in complexity and elaboration, with new innovations in glitter, gilding, and fine-line work.

Dare to be a red hijabi

Standard

Red highlights the sensitivities of the observer. Therefore, it is a very strong color that can quickly capture the attention. So it is recommended that people who choose to wear this color clothing to be master himself and not too shy. Also, red is the color of passion, but it should not be used in excess.

This color symbolizes heat, fire, passion, enthusiasm and aggression and has the effect of stimulating people to make decisions quickly and increasing hope. It should also be noted that objects which contain red in their design are immediately noticed so they are often used in interior decoration. Red clothes can give the feeling of power, but also the conflict, aggression.

Therefore, dare to have a strong personality and identity, dare to be a red hijabi!

Jilbab fashion

Standard

Because recently my husband and I were in Jordan, where I could see a great variety of jilbab models and colours I thought it will make a good topic to write about. Before few years when I started covering one could find jilbab only in dark colour or white,grey, cream with very old and ugly models so back than I totally rejected the idea to wear any time soon a jilbab. Fortunately for me and other young women that like to cover and still look nice nowadays there are plenty of models and colours that can fit any woman’s age or requirement.

I think is better to show you some of this models.
