Me Likey Shiney

I like to use a lightweight gloss spray on my dry hair to add shine to my hair. Gloss sprays add polish to a finished style, by taming fly-aways and acting as a frizz barrier. The best part is that these sprays are lightweight so they do not make hair greasy so you can reapply a mist of shine as many times as necessary between shampoos. I tested two glossing mists: Frederic Fekkai Sheer Shine Spray, a high-end brand, and John Frieda 100% Shine, a drugstore brand. The only alleged difference between the two products is that the Fekkai Spray contains olive oil while Frieda's does not. I did not notice this to be a major issue at all. Both products work equally well and do what they are advised to do. However there are two drawbacks with the Fekkai Shine Spray: (1) it costs significantly more than the Frieda 100% Shine - $22.50 (5 fl. oz.) versus $5.95 (3 fl. oz.), and (2) I found that the Fekkai Shine Spray just smells awful. Preferably I'd like an unscented product, but Frieda 100% Shine has a pleasant scent so I'll take it any day over Fekkai Sheer Shine Spray. So save your money, and shine on!

I use Fekkai's Glossing Cream when my hair feels dry (winter, e.g.) and the John Frieda when I just want smooth and shiny---I even use them together sometimes :) Love them both!

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.

Archives: Kunal Nayyar Weds Neha Kapur

TV's lovably neurotic astrophysicist Rajesh Koothrapali (aka Kunal N) married former Miss India Neha Kapur in a lavish round of ceremonies in Delhi back in December. Thankfully the real life Kunal doesn't require booze to talk to women - otherwise these two would be headed for a very silent or very drunk married life. Cheers to the happy couple. Here are a couple of snaps from Neha's mehendi ceremony and from their Big Fat Indian wedding reception. I hear it was a small, family affair with only about 1,000 people in attendance. Check out a slideshow of their nuptials here.
