As an ex goth, I can’t help being attracted to dark art in general", began Lauren of French Made, who provided the cakes for this shoot. "Plus my recent obsession with the series called ‘Vikings’ and their Pagan way of life gave me inspiration. I was lucky enough to find a fabulous team of wedding suppliers as ready as I am to push the boundaries and willing to get involved and create the most eye pleasing alternative bridal styled shoot."
Spotted: @rational_spirits's new Santeria Rum at last week's @contentmag Tiki and Typography event. A dunder pit (pits that host a specific type of bacteria) Jamaican rum that uses a brilliant new rapid aging technology from @lostspiritsdistillery. IT'S (black) MAGIC! At 57.5%, it definitely packs a punch. #tiki #tikiasfuck #rum #boozybooze #usbgsv @packsof3 @rumandrye
"Beauty is like an ingredient we all have. You have yours, I have mine, in different measures according to what’s treasured in our society, or what eyes are seeing us. No one else can carry your beauty...If you don’t believe that you are beautiful, I ask you how can you trust your impression of yourself? Let’s widen our definition of Beauty, shall we? Let’s define it for ourselves. Let’s divorce it from its cruel spouse: Perfection." - Tanisha, "The Lure of Beauty"
Where is this? You may be surprised to learn that it's in Havana too! Parque Almendares is the only urban forest in Havana and is a popular recreational area. Followers of the Santeria religion will even sacrifice animals along the river which definitely adds a bit of eeriness to this area. Our tour guide said that the sacrifices don't bother anyone and 15 year old girls will come to this area for their Quinceañeras to take beautiful pictures. I can see why just look at how lush and green it…
