3 weeks ago, my twin sister Saci, came to me excited about a creative concept her and my eldest sister Kat were brainstorming up. The artistic gene runs strong in all the sister's, and we have been blessed that we have been able to exercise that creativity in our day to day lives.
Their idea: Glo Tatts™ - Metallic Glow-in-the-Dark Temporary Tattoos
It was a great idea, but they had to work quickly to roll it out before the end of summer in the northern hemisphere. So for the next few weeks, Saci sketched hundreds of tattoo designs to come up with the perfect set for their launch.
With my daughter still in her very dependant upon me (9 months, and still doesn't sleep well!), I was limited in ways to help, so I acted as a cheerleader.
Wednesday was their first shoot - which manifested at Saci's St Andrews Beach shack. Models Emily & Shanai were called last minute. We pulled our favourite styles from my collections from the last 3 years, and I managed to get a set built in about an hour - a teepee made of exquisite sari's that Saci bought in India
Saci shot, edited and built the website in hours, with contributions from her best friend Sophie - App queen of Applause Apps
Glo Tatts™ Launched yesterday, and I'm so excited for whats to come
*On a product side note - I got to wear the first ever Glo Tatt, and a week later, writing this post is a little more fun than usual with my metallic hand tatt still sparkling up at me
