A Touch of Bollywood

Mister Moustache Vintage Poster from Nutmeg Click

star-crossed lovers
angry parents
love triangles
family ties
sacrifice
corrupt politicians
kidnappers
conniving villains
courtesans with hearts of gold
long-lost relatives
siblings separated by fate

I love the Indian thing of using bright pink and gold - it's such an "up" combo! We were both "away" at the same time! People will begin to talk Chrisy!! :)

Yes that makeup doesn't look so good on we blondes...I have a secret desire to be a brunette...with olive skin....unfortunately I look horrid with dark hair...maybe I'll get to 'come back' as an Indian Princess type! But...must embrace what we have I suppose...maybe I'll do a 'blonde' post soon...
