One of my best friends just got married, on what was one of the most emotional, beautiful, tiring weekends of my life. And on this weekend of love, I fell hook line and sinker for the art of mendhi. I'm not talking about the stuff that you get done on a beach in Ibiza, I'm talking about the good stuff, done with patiences and care by someone who really knows what they're doing. This delicate pattern, drawn freehand was knocked out in about 5 minutes by a talented mendhi artist before she went on to the next.
Whether I'll still be loving it in 10 days when it's practically faded and leaves and faint orange blur smeared across my hand is a different question. But for now, I'm smitten!
