I Tamarva, have always loved Halloween. The main reason

I love Halloween is because I get to dress up. I love, love, love

to dress up. So this year I ordered an Egytpian costume. This

costume comes with the multi-colored jewel collar, the black

and gold dress, the gold belt, and the wig.I bought the Egyptian

headdress separately. I also got the lipstick and eyeliner. I didn’t

wear the face stones until a few days after. I was not able

to duplicate the eye of horus around the lining of my eye.

I didn’t wear the fake eyelashes. I was not able to find the

perfect shoes for the outfit until I stumbled upon Payless.

I went into that store and saw some fine shiny black shoes

with a wonderful slant to them. They were $25.99. It costs

me over $50.00 for the outfit and accessories. Oh, and

Happy Belated Halloween! I was supposed to do this

post earlier. Peace!DesiSmileys.com

My Henna Tattoo is Fashionable but Not Permanent!

I love to see tattoos. I love singer Rihanna’s tattoos. I love the thought of having musical notes and symbols tattooed along my neck. I mean there are an infinite amount of brilliant tattoos for your visual pleasure. That brings me to my point of discussion.

I was recently at the Northend Festival in Detroit, Michigan and got a henna tattoo! This was new for me because I never ever heard of a henna tattoo until then. I heard of henna for the hair, for the longest time though. Well, enough about that. For those of you who
don’t know, a henna tattoo is made with a colored gel that is squeezed from a tube and drawn on your body. I got this HENNA tattoo just yesterday. The young lady who drew it saw a picture of a tattoo on a woman’s hand and just started drawing it out on my left hand. It was full of detail, appealing to the eyes, and so darn elegant!

I was careful with what I touched because I didn’t want to
mess up the whole thing. The corner of my design on my finger got smudged right away a tad bit. But forget that. The henna tattoo is banging. I recommend it for those who’ve always loved to see tattoos and don’t want a permanent one.

I washed my hands and the design’s thick gel like consistency wore off. The thing is that it still left an imprint like something with a strong foundation. This is day two and the tattoo’s imprint is still there.
