Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow.

OK, listen. I'm all about playing with your look and changing it up now and again. But I also firmly believe that hair extensions should be used carefully, and when used, subtlety should be the goal! Apparently, this is one lesson that Piggy Chops refuses to learn. Darn her for being so stubborn! I last posted regarding her awful use of extensions well over a year ago! And yet. Here we are. Back at it again. Perhaps she's just a slow learner?At the launch of her personal web site, Piggy C was sans extensions. I love the naturally wavy texture she's got to work with, however this hair cut is doing absolutely nothing for her! The layers are too choppy and do nothing in terms of shape. It's very boxy and unflattering. With this cut, the only look she can pull off is flat-ironed sleek which does get a tad boring after a while. To recap: hurray for natural texture, hurray for no dreadful extensions, but boo for the ugly hair cut.The very next day, as if like a Chia Pet, Piggy C sprouted all manner of long hair. The result? Tragic extensions all over the place. Let me reiterate, Piggy. Extensions are fine when you want to play around with your normally short hair (or say to create a chignon or up do that is otherwise not possible with your own hair), but the key is that your hair should actually look good with the addition, not like the Little Mermaid gone batty! Get a clue, woman! I just hate when bad hair happens to lovely people, don't you? Photos: getty.

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 …
