All the Single Ladies*

*Ok, the title is misleading. As of press time, Shilpa is not single, and is in fact engaged, but I couldn't resist.

These lovely ladies attended Shilpa's Iosis Medispa launch. This fact is relevant because it appears that Sush got a massage and then forgot to button up her blouse as she hurried out to meet the photogs. She ruined an otherwise classy and put-together look by inexplicably missing several buttons on her shirt. No idea why. But, she is her usual bubbly self, and that smile of her's goes a ways in compensating for what would have done much better worn as a jacket over something.

I'm not totally nuts for Shilpa's look, but I must concede that it works for her. As for Madam Re, well it's certainly intersting seeing her out and about in less than 6 yards of silk. However, I must point out that she has donned a full-sleeve, black trench ... in July ... in Mumbai. She has got to be burning up in there!

As ready as sister Shilpa looks for a night out on the town, sister Shamita's buttoned up blue blazer is not working at all. Blazers on chicks can definitely be cute, but the way she's wearing it (i.e. fully buttoned, and covering up what I hope might be a feminine cami), it looks like she raided AB Sr.'s closet. If I bought this particular blazer, I think I'd have my tailor swap out the boring, matchy blue buttons for antique buttons. Plus, with such a deep blue top, pairing it with light rinse denims was another mistake. Accessory-wise, while Shilpa's an admitted LV fanatic, it seems like Shamita's a Gucci girl.

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 …
