Accentuate Your Fashion Style With Traditional Mehndi Designs

Are you looking for a "new" style that will accentuate your fashion sense with a bold, colorful statement of intent? Perhaps you're interested in learning more about classic fashions that feature the best Mehndi design? If you're new to Mehndi designs, there's a lot to learn, but you'll have so much fun doing it that it will hardly seem like encyclopedic research! In a nutshell, Mehndi designs are currently taking the world by storm, thanks to their sensational combination of ancient religious tradition and timeless beauty. This is one "new" fashion trend that is centuries old, yet ageless.

What Is Mehndi And Where Does It Originate From?

For those of you who are completely new to the Mehndi design phenomenon, a bit of catching up may be in order. Mehndi designs originate from India, and were first developed there a few centuries ago in the wake of the Mughal invasion. Since then, these innovative and timeless designs have spread from India into Pakistan, the Middle East, and the Far East of Asia. Anywhere you see women wearing brightly colored saris, you're sure to see them sporting classic Mehndi themed fashion items as well.

Why Has Mehndi Become So Popular?

There is no one easy answer to the question of just how and why Mehndi designs have suddenly become so popular in the 21st century. Perhaps the fact that the Internet has brought the world closer together in such a relatively short period of time has had a decisive impact on the ability of fashion styles to suddenly impact parts of the world where they were previously unknown. Regardless of the reason, the truth is that Mehndi fashion is now everywhere, and more popular than ever.

Mehndi Designs Are Taking The Internet By Storm

Mehndi designs are currently taking the Internet by storm. There are countless pages on Pinterest, Etsy, Ebay, Tumblr, and other areas on the web that are devoted to showing off or advertising these classic traditional designs. For example, companies like Craftsvilla and others are selling jewelry and clothing designs that are based on the traditional Mehndi style. No matter whether you're searching for a new dress, brooch, pair of earrings, or a bracelet, you are sure to find the Mehndi items that will complete your new ensemble. This is the year of Mehndi designs, so don't be left behind!

Handmade Birthday Party Invitation Cards

My little girl is turning 8 soon and she is so excited about it! So last Wednesday, for our "Basteltag" or Crafts Day we started making her birthday party invitation cards. We decided on the slider card because while watching You Tube videos on how to make them, it was very interesting and challenging on my first since it's my first time making one.

Our materials. :)
Gathering up our materials made of glitter board paper, colored paper, gift wrapper, 3D stickers in various motifs, double sided adhesives, scissors, puncher, ribbon band, self-adhesive velvet border, sandwich plastic bag, and our creative and free imagination, we came up with something that is quite elegant and cute at the same time. 

The invitation details were printed on colored paper using a color printer. The little girl wrote the names of her friends on each card and also her name to make it more personalized.

We made 10 invitation cards for her girl friends.
The inside of the cards have different paper colors. We have light blue, rose and pink. The white ribbon band is used to help pull or slide out the two cards that contain the details of the party. I am really glad we did this together. She was very happy about it and can't wait to hand them out to her friends next week. I also think they are cool and cute. How about you, do you like it? Want to know how to make one for a special occassion? I can show you how or I can make one for you. Just comment away!

Your home requires a significant amount of repairs and upkeep throughout the years. Even the best kept of homes can suffer from issues with backed-up plumbing and clogged pipes.

You understandably want to be confident in the contractor you hire to work on your home's plumbing. A plumber who is inexperienced and relatively new to the industry may work well under the supervision of skilled contractors.

These years of experience mean that you get fast, reliable, and thorough care of your home's plumbing. The problem that is plaguing your house right now may not occur again because of the professional service you retain online.

Estimates and Savings

Hiring a contractor can be a pricey experience if you fail to shop wisely. You can use the website to get a quote for the problem you are having right now with your plumbing. By getting a quote, you know exactly how much you may need to spend to get the problem fixed. The contractor guarantees the price and does not include surprises that could throw the work off budget.

You also can save money by using the specials tab on the company's website. By clicking on the link, you may find coupons and savings that will allow you to trim your repair bill significantly. This courtesy helps you get the work done you need right now even if you are on the tightest of home improvement and repair budgets.

Burger Restaurants in Stuttgart

Looking for a good hamburger place in Stuttgart? Nope, I'm not talking about the greasy fastfood hamburgers from McDonald's or Burger King but hamburgers with 100% real beef meat and served with fresh salads. There are a number of places to go. Here are the three on my list:

Hans im Glück's whole grain bun burger with salad on the side. Just yum!

1. "Hans im Glück": The concept of this burgergrill is that of Hans' from the fairytale of the same title. "As happy as me, there is no one else under the sun!" These words are spoken by Hans after he has traded on his way one by one the valuable against the worthless. For him, happiness is something other than possession, what matters most is the MOMENT. This lightness of being, free from every burden, is the basic idea of the HANS Im GLUECK burger grills. Here guests will be given special moments of happiness. What I like about this burger grill is that you can choose the type of bread and the sauce on your burger. They also have burger menus for vegetarians. There are 4 locations in Stuttgart: in Europaviertel along Lissabonner Strasse, in Caleido along Tübinger Strasse (near Gerber), in Milaneo at Mailänder Platz, and in Marienstrasse.

2. Flo Steak & Burger: This burger and steak restaurant in the heart of Stuttgart opened not so long ago - on the 24th of April to be exact. As the name implies, they have steaks and burgers on the menu. Haven't tried the steaks yet but I heard from friends that they are great! Their burger patty is juicy and not dry. There are also many variants to choose from like salmon fish burger and vegetarian burger, Every now and then they have their burger specials. I also enjoyed their sweet potato fries and their own concoction of passion fruit juice! They are also now open from 11:03 AM on Sundays! Hurray for that! Flo is located in Bolzstrasse 10, on the corner of Lautenschlagerstrasse.

3. Triple B (Beef Burger Brothers): This is a small burger shop in the Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen area. Read so many praises and good reviews about this shop. Everything is made fresh in the house, from the burger patty down to the bun. They use only 100% regional beef meat and claims that the meat is never frozen. I've been passing by this store each time I have some business at the Rathaus but never really got the chance to stop by to eat. One day I will come invade you! :) Triple B is located at Bottwarstrasse 1 (near Zuffenhausen Rathaus). More convenient to come by train on the U15 Zuffenhausen-Rathaus stop as parking can be difficult. The shop is closed on Mondays.

So there's the 3 burger grills/restaurants to watch out for when you are in Stuttgart and are in the mood for some beef goodness. 

Do you know any other Burger stores in the area? If so, I will be glad to learn about it. Just leave a comment. Thanks!
