Bridal Henna Workshop by Love Henna By Farah

Hey Everyone,

I have this really talented aunt: Farah! She is a Henna Artist, she puts her beautiful henna designs on people, specially brides, makes her own henna, also sells it, and gives super fun and helpful workshops every now and then.
As I am a really big henna fan, I was given an opportunity to join one of her Bridal Henna Workshop yesterday, that I absolutely loved!

Enjoy reading!



Preparations!



First Farah taught us a lot about Henna, the origin, which henna not to use, do's and don'ts if you would like to become a henna artist like her and taught us how to make your own henna paste!




We got this learning material with the slides from the presentation to take notes and there are also some basic designs in there!



We learned how to make our own henna with her recipe, we made this in groups!




Time for lunch! Delicious sandwiches, Chicken pastry (halal of course), Salmon with cream cheese wraps, and also fruit skewers, that I unfortunately don't have a picture of, but really delicious !



Farah's simple design to show us how to make a beautiful design like this one! (Fatima Fabulous is not written on it, just put it there like in every picture, so you know it is me)





First we practised some designs with a pen, this is my paper.







Next step: practising with henna on paper! My favorite part!



First hand on the picture (below on the right) putting mehndi/henna on paper is mine!



Two oils we used to make the henna paste, her recipe will be online on her You Tube channel soon!




Farah demonstrating a design on my cousins hand!




Result:





I'm practising a Fessi (Moroccon henna design) on paper and also practicing the design with henna on paper.




Finished!



Cute design on my hand by Farah!




This is a Henna Certificate we got because we followed the course!





We got a cute goody bag, with these things:
-Henna Powder
-Little soap
-Nail polish
-Henna Cone made by Farah herself
-An empty Henna cone, so we can fill it with our homemade Henna and recreate a cone like that.

Henna design inspired by the workshop, made it today with the henna I got from the workshop! (some fingers are a bit orange, that's just the henna).






I put this on my sister's hand after I got back from the workshop, the design I practiced in the workshop. Look at this color, only after 24 hours after applying it! It keeps getting darker for about 48 hours!




Are you a crazy henna fan like me, find this workshop interesting or thinking of becoming a henna artist? Follow Farah on social media for inspiration and be the first to join her course. I can guarantee you it will be a lot of fun! Thank you so much Farah - Love Henna !

Monchoutaart, (zonder gelatine)!

Hey Girls, Monchoutaart is heerlijk met thee. Het is leuk om zelf te maken, en lekker bij een high tea. Of als er gewoon bezoek is. Een van mijn lievelings dessert is monchoutaart, ik heb het recept van mijn tante geleerd. Ik wil het graag met jullie delen. Geniet ervan! Benodigheden: - 1-pak verkade San Fransisco koekjes - 150 gr roomboter - 250 ml slagroom - 2- pakjes monchou - 1- pakje vaniliesuiker - 2- pakjes klopfix - 75 gr witte bastardsuiker - vlaaifruit kersen,(HAK) - Ronde bakvorm - Bakpapier Stap 1: Verkruimel de blokjes helemaal stuk, met een lepel of de hand. verwarm de boter in de magnetron of in de pan, tot het gesmolten is en voeg het samen in de koek kruimels. Mix het goed. Doe nu bakpapier in de bakvorm en druk het koek helemaal plat, net als op het plaatje. Zet dit nu in de koelkast, zodat het stevig wordt. Stap 2: Klop de slagroom stijf met de klopfix en vaniliesuiker. Mix dan in een aparte kom de bastardsuiker en de monchou samen, probeer

Why I love shopping in The Hague City Center!

Hey Everyone, The Hague is a special city for me, not only cause it's my home town, but because of the amazing shopping opportunity. The main The Hague center is just the best place to wander of in the beautiful shopping streets of the Hague. From big shops as Zara, H&M and Marks & Spencers to cute little coffee and tea shops! There is this good, at home feeling vibe there, where I'm sure of, that even if you're not from here, you'll feel at home there, not just because of the amazing choices of shopping and food places, but also the friendly shop workers, who are always willing to help you and make you feel comfortable. What I always say is that the The Hague City Center is my second home, because I feel so comfortable and happy when I'm there! My great memories of the center: Since I was like 6 or something my grandma and I visited the center and bougth a lot of amazing stuff, but our tradition was to always buy some Bram Ladash Fries! We still do

Chowmahalla palace l Hyderabad-India

Hey Everyone,  I just got back from India, and I must say this was the best India trip I ever went to! It's not only the shopping I love about India, (what most of my family & friends think..), it's much more than that! One of the best places I went is definitely the Chowmahalla palace! It's indescribably peaceful there, the only thing you hear is the wind blowing, birds and the water fountain, and of course some visitors:). That's probably one of my most favorite things about this place, for example outside the walls of the palace you hear cars, a lot of people and stuff, like it's so busy on the streets, but as soon as you enter the palace territory it's just you, the palace and the sounds of nature! And Oh my god, the details of the palace, like everything is so beautifully designed. Just beautiful!! Another great thing about this place is, that it has so much information about the history of the king, the palace and just Indian culture all togethe
