Love the 'Tude!

La Rai provides a surprisingly candid interview in the October issue of Hi!. I suppose surprising is rather unfair. But it seems that La Rai's practiced even keel in interviews has resulted in an impression that she may be unwilling to divulge how she really feels or to speak her mind. Given her obvious good looks, she has often been plagued with the assumption that there's just not much more to her than her beauty. In this spread, she's been styled by Sabyasachi Mukherjee using accessories by Louis Vuitton. Check out the quote regarding her much-publicized appearances at Cannes. You tell 'em, Aishwarya!Still looking as lovely as the day she entered the biz, but now braced with a blunt, "tell it like it is" attitude, La Rai will be turning 37 in November. Per the article, "Sixteen years later, she does not work out with any regularity, panders to her sweet tooth and starts each day with a cupcake." A cupcake?! I love her for loving her cupcakes!!
Ask her where she gets these cupcakes from and without missing a beat she says, "They come from various places, they go to the wrong places! So for the junk I eat, I have been very fortunate. There has been some weight gain because metabolism is doing its time as well, but for now, bring on the cupcakes!"
Bring on the cupcakes, indeed!Photo: Hi! Blitz, aishwarya-spice.com

@ Classy - I do agree with you. Would be nice to see her rock some western styles every once in a while. We know she looks smashing when she does!

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 …
