Hair Help!

If you have long, thick hair and you are tired of feeling like you need 3 hours and at least two extra devi-like arms to dry and style your hair, the Rusk hot air brush is a must-have tool. I've found that not only does it cut drying time in half, the combined round brush/hair dryer aspects of this tool also alleviate the arm aches from holding two appliances. It does take some getting used to, but once you master the curl-under-and-pull method, you'll be on your way to sleek and dry hair without spending hours or looking like a fluff ball. Rusk retails the hot air brush for around $70.

My recommendation is to gently towel dry your hair, then apply a thermal protecting spray and comb through. Next, use a standard blow-dryer and blow dry your hair for two minutes to soak up extra moisture. Now, you're ready to go at your mane with the hot air brush. Once you've dried your hair, I recommend using the cool shot setting on your blow-dryer to set your style. Apply a glossing mist, and you're all set! Unfortunately, it appears that Ulta is not currently carrying this product in-stores, but if you are comfortable purchasing online, it is available at online retailers so keep your eyes peeled as it's bound to turn up!

Meet Queen Jetsun Pema of Bhutan

The young, beautiful, and fashionable Queen of Bhutan, a country secluded from the world's limelight due to its remoteness, has already been generating a stir ever since her marriage to the King and her rise to the position of Queen Consort. She is a powerhouse in her own right, and much loved by the Bhutanese people. However, on a fun and superficial level, she has also drawn favorable comparisons to the Duchess of Cambridge, so much so, that she is sometimes referred to as the "Kate Middleton of the Himalayas".
So who is this Himalayan Queen? At 25-years-old, she is the youngest Queen Consort in the world. Like Kate, she was a commoner (though with an aristocratic lineage) and the daughter of a pilot. She is fashionable, athletic, and holds a university arts background. Additionally, she herself is a brand new mum, having recently given birth to a baby boy.
As with Wills and Kate, the King and Queen of Bhutan have always shown great respect for their country's cult…

Coming to a Screen Near You: Freida Pinto.

So not only is this lass charming fashion houses the world over, Freida is racking up the film offers! We already know Freida's been tapped for Woody Allen's next project. Now, The Sun is breaking news that Freida has been asked to audition for the next Bond film which is reportedly likely to be directed by none other than Danny Boyle. I may be biased, but I think fab Freida would make one fierce Bond Girl! This is one rumor I hope comes to fruition. Daniel Craig + Freida Pinto = must-see Bond flick.

Two Faced Mascara Melt-Off

**UPDATED** We all love mascara that doesn't budge, but who enjoys nightly battles with mascara removal? Not I. Which is why I was excited to give this product a whirl. It promises quick, easy, and effective mascara removal. I simply applied a coat to my lashes using the kind of wand you would expect for lower lash mascaras. I let the product remain on my lashes as I washed my face (approx. two minutes). I used a cotton pad soaked in my favorite eye-makeup remover to gently sweep off the mascara.
The Mascara Melt-Off definitely speeds up the mascara removal process, with significantly less tugging and rubbing of lashes. I felt that the results were a more thorough mascara removal than makeup remover alone.

That said, the directions stated to use a cotton pad to wipe off the mascara; but I found that you most definitely need to soak the pad in your usual remover. Also, I should note that I tested it on non-waterproof mascara. I have no idea how effective it would be in the case of …
