What's in My Makeup Bag?

Drum roll, please. As a confessed makeup-holic, I noticed that my ever-expanding collection has now expanded to the point of taking over all but one drawer in my bathroom (leaving poor hubbs with just the one itty bitty drawer to call his own). So, with this burgeoning collection of all manner of makeup and beauty products, I'd like to unveil my newest feature: What's in My Makeup Bag? I hope to make this one a regular so do write in with any suggestions!

So let's start 'er off right, shall we? There's a nice, cool nip in the air. Which means it's soon to be time for warm apple cider, hot donuts, and gorgeous autumn colors! You know what that means, ladies. Time to put away the fun, vibrant summer shades and trade in for some deep hued fall nail polish! I don't know what excites me more about season changes - the actual weather change, or the chance to swap in a whole new palette of makeup colors? Right now I'm all about the "greige" trend. OPI's You Don't Know Jacques has been a fall favorite for over 2 years now. The OPI shades can be purchased at ULTA or even some chain hair places and retails for around $8.50. A less expensive alternative (it's like $2 cheaper) that still produces a shiny, ripple-free application is Sally Hansen's Commander in Chic. But watch out ladies, this latter shade is a little hard to find in stock at the drugstores I've scouted so keep your eyes open! I scored mine at my local Target. I will say, I do prefer the wide, flat brush of the Sally Hansen polish to that of the OPI. Quality-wise, Sally is aces in my book!

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…

Archives: Kunal Nayyar Weds Neha Kapur

TV's lovably neurotic astrophysicist Rajesh Koothrapali (aka Kunal N) married former Miss India Neha Kapur in a lavish round of ceremonies in Delhi back in December. Thankfully the real life Kunal doesn't require booze to talk to women - otherwise these two would be headed for a very silent or very drunk married life. Cheers to the happy couple. Here are a couple of snaps from Neha's mehendi ceremony and from their Big Fat Indian wedding reception. I hear it was a small, family affair with only about 1,000 people in attendance. Check out a slideshow of their nuptials here.

Coming to a Screen Near You: Freida Pinto.

So not only is this lass charming fashion houses the world over, Freida is racking up the film offers! We already know Freida's been tapped for Woody Allen's next project. Now, The Sun is breaking news that Freida has been asked to audition for the next Bond film which is reportedly likely to be directed by none other than Danny Boyle. I may be biased, but I think fab Freida would make one fierce Bond Girl! This is one rumor I hope comes to fruition. Daniel Craig + Freida Pinto = must-see Bond flick.
