Confusion Reigns.

What exactly was the dress code for Manyata's birthday party? Quick! Someone grab the invite and check because judging by these guests, it was quite unclear. Let's recap, shall we? We've got Sallu baba and Zarine in jeans and a tee (better add Fardeen in his ridiculous t-shirt to that group). Sallu baba seems to have ambled over directly from his Bodyguard promo work. Zarine and Fardeen, what's with the Disney theme??
Next we have the short cocktail dress camp (I think these ladies, minus Ameesha, got it right). I love the gradient of blue shades in Neha's one-shoulder sheath. Sophie's coral + gold pumps = hawt. Natasha looks cute as well; wish she could fix her hubby's style issues.
Samita's hot pink semi-maxi is quite cute. I say semi-maxi because it's a tad dressier than most maxi dresses tend to be. It may be a tad on the too dressy side, but I'll give it a pass just because I like it so much. Ha! Such is the power I wield.
Finally, we have Krishika Lulla in her full-on (totally ugly) floor length gown - wtf was she thinking?! It's not a premiere (not that I am suggesting she wear this monstrosity on the red carpet). It's a bloody birthday party.
And for a little perspective, here's what the birthday girl was wearing:
Since it is Friday, I saved the pièce de résistance for last. Get. A load. Of this. Sheeba in an unreal outfit better suited for a 20 year old club-hopper than on a middle aged has-been (can you be a has-been if you never "were"?). I don't know exactly how old Sheeba is, but the fact that I am questioning age appropriateness, means that she is def too old to be wearing this ridic outfit. Notice that she has carefully coordinated her nails to match the blue in her fugly dress. Man, she should go stand next to Zayed and try to blend in. And on that note, happy Friday, y'all!

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 …
