White Out.

Looks like Ms. Koirala has out-slobbed herself this time. At the X-Men premiere, she showed up in a ratty ol' tee and white denims - she's really not doing herself any favors with head-to-toe white. And don't even get me started on those kicks. What did I say the rule on sneakers to a premiere was? Don't do it. Ever!Photo Source.

They've got money, they're famous ... you'd think the next logical step would be to hire a stylist. Which makes me wonder if maybe she does have a stylist ... a very, very bad stylist?

As someone who has been exposed, from birth to Hollywood and all its phoney trapping and relentlessly "styled" people (who frankly cease to resemble people and begin to resemble cartoon characters with NILL personality and individualism) I LOVE seeing what people, human beings, real humans, born of other humans, wear when they go out. Sometimes they are GASP---casual, and comfortable! OMG (as the teenagers say) they actually may not always want to look sleek and wear shoes that are freakin' uncomfortable! (slaps jaw in shock!) They are like---ugh!---ME! How terrible! Well, actually it's NOT terrible. They aren't all fake blonde or a size zero either...and why the heck should they be? They are lovely humans who look nice and casual and comfortable. That's why I'd rather see these people---people who actually resemble PEOPLE---than the overly styled types. Anyone can pay an outsider for expertise. What do YOU do yourself? That's what interests me and what tells me more about you than how much money you can afford to pay out for someone elses idea of "style".

Interesting point, Queenie. I do partially agree in that it would be nice to see people exposing their individual style. But therein lies our difference in opinion. Style for me implies not being a slob. Celebrities are paid to look good. That is their job. They are beautiful (and some can even act!), and they are famous because of their beauty (and sometimes talent). Whilst attending a film premiere or other such event, this is an employment function for a star as far as I'm concerned. You'll note that I don't criticize celebs when they're dressed casually while running errands, etc. But my point is: you wouldn't go to a client meeting in sweats and sneakers, would you? It's a high standard, sure. But such is the price of fame.

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 …
