New Pair To Watch.

While wifey globetrots promoting Pink Panther 2, Abhi is keeping himself busy promoting his film Delhi 6. After watching their film, I may have to amend my fave jodis list to add Abhi and Sonam. How cute are they?!Abhi's lookin' good these days with his cropped hair cut. He pulled out light denims, but by leaving his shirt untucked, we don't see another high-waisted jean fiasco. And the shoes show he's put some real thought into his outfit. Stylish Sonam wore Sabyasachi to the event. She continues to look the part of Punjabi-girl-next-door. She even (un)intentionally struck the classic filmi pose.The earth tones of the kurta warmify the black odhni. I love the top half of her suit. But you know how I feel about sheer chudidaars (why?) and I'm not liking the horizontal ruching detail. That being said, Sonam still wears it well. Love her signature stick straight tresses and heavy statement meenakari earrings with minimal other jewelry. She's also stuck with her neutral makeup look with a heavily lined upper lashline and shimmery shadow, keeping her lovely eyes as the central focus.Where Sonam does it right, Divya Dutta does it very very wrong. Unless the film is beach-themed, I really don't see the point of wearing a sun dress to promote the film. That too, a white dress that cinches her in all the wrong places. Her girls are cocked and loaded, and that floral piece draws even more unnecessary attention to that area. It doesn't help any that the dress straps resemble bra straps; with her body type, she'd be better off with a more substantial top. Add to that her inexplicably summery wedges and teal blue nail polish, and you have your usual DD disaster.Photo Source.

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…

Looking for a DiorShow Extase dupe

Getting 3 kiddos fed, dressed, and out the door on time on school mornings, is challenging on a good day. Between prepping breakfasts, packing lunches, double checking bags for homework, and generally refereeing Big A and S while simultaneously holding or nursing Little A, means I have precious little time to make myself presentable. As a result, mascara has taken the front and center stage of my makeup routine for rushed mornings because who has time to carefully paint on eyeliner?!
1. DiorShow Extase (discontinued) 2. IT Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara
I was crushed when Dior discontinued their Extase mascara. I adored it. The brush had the perfect shape, and unlike DiorShow or Blackout, this formulation was amenable to multiple, clump-free coats. Unfortunately, none of the current offerings in the Dior mascara lineup feature a similar brush to Extase. IT Cosmetics offered a comparable brush and sounded like it might be a good dupe. On the positive side, the m…

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 …
