Jet set much?

Our beloved Bolly crew are quite the jet set bunch. The Nawab and Missus were recently spotted - she brought back her travel boots again (yay! ... not). She's fairly on-trend, otherwise with the graphic sweater, the YSL tote, and some fantastically glossy tresses. Thank gods she didn't don the fedora and only seems to be holding it as a prop. Whew. Who wants to break the bad news to the Nawab that he's a little old for that level of distressed denim. Kindly leave that look to Justin Beiber... errr I mean, Ranbir.

Next, we saw a gaggle of fashionable femmes. Piggy artfully mixed patterns - also very much on-trend at the moment. Karishma and Jacqueline were dressed for travel, but certainly not sloppy! Karishma's comfy jeggings and slouchy open cardi (perfect for freezing cabins), were capped off with fantastic wedge sneakers. Meanwhile Jacquie's relaxed look combined a three-quarter sleeve tough-girl jacket, grunge boots, and embellished skinnies finished with a pop of color via her plaid knapsack. Excellent job keeping it real (I mean really. Who other than a Kardashian travels in body-con and 5-inch stilettos?) yet chic!

A few BollyBaby spottings - holy cuteness! The Bachchan trio was 2/3 in good form. La Rai was fairly unobjectionable with leggings tucked neatly into riding boots. Aaradhya was of course adorbs. But AB Jr.? Well, someone ought to point him in the direction of a coat shop or a designer who could create a bespoke one for him because his little pea coat just isn't long enough, rendering it girlish in appearance.

Shilpa and little Viaan prove that it's not only mommies and daughters who can coordinate ensembles. Baby's little Tom's are oh so cute! (Is this a BollyBaby trend we're spotting?).

Finally, polished Sush glided through the airport looking every bit the star that she is. What's more, she brought along budding fashionista Renee - a girl with her own style already! I guess that apple didn't fall from the tree, eh?

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 …
