Instructional Henna CD by Bajidoo!

Brenda, of Bajidoo Art, has created a fantastic henna instructional book, "Henna, Self Taught". I'd love to offer it (it's beautiful), but it's not in our price range. Luckily she has put the book on CD and added a bunch of great information to it!

The Henna CD eBook is awesome! It includes...
  • Complete printable "Henna Self Taught" e Book on CD
  • Printable henna designs
  • 2 Henna How-To Videos
  • Henna Design Gallery
  • Brenda's online portfolio
The Henna CD covers the basics of henna including mixing henna, but it goes into depth about creating artistic henna designs easily. It really breaks up the artistic part of mehndi and makes it easy for anyone, no matter what artistic ability you have (or don't).

The CD is a bargain for what you get! I immediately bought one for myself. I have a limited supply of these, so if you want one, get it before they are out.

You can purchase the "Henna, Self Taught" CD e Book here.

Woo Hoo! More New Shoes!

There is nothing better than new shoes!

Just to tease you, our new khussa shoes are in, but not yet on the website. I'll have them pictured, inventoried, and ready to buy in a couple of weeks!

It's a small order, but gorgeous. They are the rest of the new cushion line that we've tried. These are sized to be about a half size bigger than our regular shoes.
  • There is a spectacular royal blue with holographic sequins that lean towards violet purple. These turned out so much better than I even hoped for.
  • A stunning jade green. It's a teal/jade/green color and perfect for wearing with greens, blues, purples, and browns.
  • A new lemon cream style. Same color as our current lemon cream shoes, but in a different beading pattern.
  • A warm maroon red with darker burgundy sequins is a show-stopper. I love love love these shoes!
Check the website, www.ShopBeachcombers.com often or sign up for our email list to be notified when they are ready for purchase.

Our order of regular style shoes is nearly ready as well. I hope to have it before the holidays! It contains our standard style shoes along with a boatload of brand new styles!

Hope the wait isn't too much torture!
