Summer Celeb Spotting.

Delhi was abuzz with Delhi Couture Week so Manav Gangwani seized the opportunity to use the presence of the stars who flocked to the shows to launch his Delhi boutique. I love the color of Soha's dress but I feel that the flouncy fullness of the skirt doesn't do her any favors. The girl needs a crash course on how to dress a petite frame. Also, what is up with her center-parted bangs obsession? It seems like ever since that first movie of hers (way back when) that she has insisted on wearing her hair in this manner.
Raveena brought along hubby Anil Thadani. While Raveena looked smokin' hot (mercifully with a smoothed out hair style), Anil looked like he is in the throes of a brutal mid-life crisis. Start dressing your age, and leave the trendiness to your much younger hipster counterparts.
I sincerely hope that when Natasha and Lalla Khan found something cute at the boutique that they asked the clerk to cut the tags so they could change out of those ghastly dresses immediately. And speaking of hair styles, why did Natasha bother to wear a dress and heels if she was going to style her hair as if she was going to clean her house? Greasy pony tail? Check. Straggly hair coming out of pony tail? Check. Scrunchie? Check! Who in the world still buys scrunchies? I didn't know they were still made. Some '80s relics should stay there. Side note, Natasha, please make your husband cut his hair - it's hideous. Also, please tell him he is indoors so he doesn't need to worry about the harsh rays of the sun.
After Raveena, Farah Khan was the only celeb I spotted who bore some semblance to fashionable. She kept in cool and cas; love her pants and the loose top is a nice complement. I'm ambivalent about her handbag though - don't really dig the color and don't think it adds to her over all look.

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 …
