Pink Velvet

pinkvelvet

Guys, let me tell you about my pink velvet obsession..wait I mean my velvet obsession. I am in love with velvet EVERYTHING and I am so happy my favorite color (pink) seems to be the color of the year. This light blush pink has my heart and adding velvet to the mix makes my heart extremely happy. Let me tell you I have a blush pink choker in the mail that will be arriving to my doorstep shortly, and that thing will be worn non-stop. pinkvelvet2 pinkvelvet6

Plus, what is up with this amazing bodysuit from Forever21…..I am obsessed. It is so pink, so velvet, and so chic-ing adorable. I serious want to wear it all the time. This bodysuit also comes in a dark aqua blue that I am in love with as well, but I felt pink was more my color. I’ve decided to pair it with a simple nude skirt that in my opinion compliments the velvet so well. I think the maroon choker also added a little something to this look.

This post isn’t just to talk about my velvet obsession, it is also to talk about the amazing sunburst coming through on these photos, and the amazing henna I had put on my shoulder, back, and right forearm. This is the first time I had ever had henna put on, and I find it so unique, cultural, and beautiful. This collaboration was a fun one to say the least. I learned so much about henna and the process. There seems to be a lot more to it then people think, and I really like that Rayna, my henna artist, uses all natural organic henna.

When getting henna applied, the longer you leave the henna application on your skin, the darker the stain. After you let the application soak into your skin and dry, you have to peel it off with a paper towel, or the edge of a paper and scrap it off. pinkvelvet11 The process is seriously so cool, and it was my first time ever getting henna. Rayna is very good with designs, so I just left the design up to her. It is more fun that way anyways. She did a small design on my right forearm, on my left shoulder-blade, and in the middle of my back. As you can see, all designs turned out great. We added the white for fun, which is actually just a white paint (safe for skin and free of dyes). This can last a few days depending on the placement. pinkvelvet5 Over all this experience was very cool and eye-opening. A lot of different cultures use henna for many different reasons, and I find that very beautiful. For me it was more of an experience and something new to try. To others it can be a way of┬álife, belief, strength, and the list goes on. It is great to be apart of the world that has so many view-points, and so many stories. pinkvelvet8 pinkvelvet00
