Happy Birthday, AB Sr.!

The Big B celebrated his 68th birthday in style and with the usual media frenzy. For starters, his tv show Kaun Banega Crorepati threw him a bash, and the Bachchans et all later celebrated at the Bachchan residence, Jalsa. Honestly, it does seem like the Bachchans themselves appeared on their driveway for the sole purpose of waving to cameras and being photographed. I guess the Bachchan Machine lives by the saying "no publicity is bad publicity"!You'll notice between events that it appears as though La Rai is paying tribute to her FIL by color coordinating with him. During the daytime, I have no issues with either AB Sr. or La Rai's choice of attire. Both look crisp. But who let AB Jr. out of the house looking like a reject from the sets of High School Musical?! Dress your age, man!Again in the evening, the Bachchan Machine geared up for some family photos on their driveway in classic style. Man do these guys love posing together! They all look fantastic. But where is poor Shweta Nanda and her hubby? Anyway, La Rai and AB Sr. are color coordinated again. It looks like La Rai is slipping back into her favorite pastel colored chudidaar-kurta rut. The silhouette does look great on her so I can't really quibble with wearing what works. Photos: getty.

Is it just me or does she wear the same kind of kurta churidarr combo 90% of the time when shes photographed!?
Why must she always look like an aunty? She looks so damn good in western wear why doesnt she embrace it?

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 …
