Hi there …
Ok, sorry for my silence … yes I feel the need to apologize … it was quite a while.
But in this silence time I’ve also had the chance, like last year, to work for 10 days in an amazing exhibition fair in Florence. It takes place every year, once a year for 10 days till the 1st of May (it started on the 22nd) it is called:
MOSTRA INTERNAZIONALE DELL’ARTIGIANATO Mostra Internazionale dell’Artigianato Firenze
An exhibition where you can find really whatever you want, from national Italian handicraft to clothes, to international stands from Morocco to India, Pakistan, Iran, Lithuania, France, Spain, Mexico, Tunisia … all countries really! I cannot mention all of them, and do not get me wrong if I do not put a complete list here but there are so many countries! Really a worldwide reality.
From jewels to clothes, forniture, food …
An amazing experience, I advice you to do it once, because it is a little bit like travelling to each country just moving from one stand to another one.
And also in terms of food we go from Iranian dates to the Morocco area where there was a restaurant (I have tried one evening lamb cous cous …) and a full stand of typical sweets, I have to confess my lunch break a couple of times was just some of those and an amazing Moroccan mint tea to come with.
And from Sardinia typical goat cheese to spicy sauces from Calabria Region, oranges from Sicily, French baguette, amazing Campania buffalo mozzarella cheese … and also famous restaurants like Quinoa that I really love, and I enjoyed once at lunch with my mum. Amazing vegetarian food. They have a restaurant in central Florence I have also rated on Trip Advisor because really worthy.
I have to stop writing about food. I actually have a food blog with my recipes.
Well concerning this post, and my website, I would like to tell you today that while working there I decided to do something very very special: henna tattoo.
Yes you understood it well: HENNA TATTOO.
I have no tattoos, nothing, just earrings one per ear.
So it was quite a shock, but an amazing surprise to rediscover the beauty of my hands, seeing them differently. This way!
So I would like to know what do you think about it?
Have you ever done one, would you ever do it? Any real tattoo?
I was working in an Italian clothing stand in the fair, and I had to ask the permission for it, for doing it and then working, but I did not regret it at all! On the contrary it was superb! And my customers loved it too! Sales went on very well even if I was selling Italian clothes, with those hands! So no prejudices!
Then of course it depends what job you are doing, which is your outfit, which accessories you wear … But if you do not have any specific working restrictions, why not?
You could also ask for one in a part of your body less visible instead of front hands …
And it lasts only ten days, so really worthy, even just to try it before doing a real tattoo, just to see how you feel like, with your skin looking different …
I really advice you to do it, what do you have to lose?
It would have been nice also to have one on the back … Now my henna tattoo is gone, and I am missing it. It was really beautiful!
I do think it is a way to rediscover your body beauty. It is a form of art. It is also a real artistic talent.
There was a catalogue to chose from, but in my case I didn’t chose anything, no design was followed, just a new drawing created at the very moment, not copied. Amazing!
I have to say Kushal Pal (Mani) really impressed me, you can find him on Facebook Kushal Pal (Mani) if you are curious and have info about his work, a real profession and passion I should say because he has a real talent.
And art is a form of beauty.
I really would advise everyone to try it, to really find back your own beauty.
Something that suits you, so ask for advice. We are all different, depending also on our outfit, what we usually wear, our very personal shape and lines.
And don’t forget about your beauty!
Rediscover not just your external beauty but also your inner beauty which is why you are worthy!
Your value! Never forget who you are.
And shine always from inside yourself!
Then you will be able to wear anything or nothing or just a henna tattoo …
You are amazing! Remember that all of you guys!
We are called to shine in this world.
Be ourselves and live our life, beautiful because unique and just ours!
Take care all of you!
Thanks for reading me.
See you next
