Priyanka hits up the Golden Globes

Update: the reason there are no red carpet photos of PC is because she didn't attend the Golden Globes as previously thought. Sorry, photogs, for the rant on not recognizing PC. Totally unfair. You can't recognize her if she's not there.
 
Blink and you missed it, but PC apparently hit up the party circuit as well as the main event. Our girl didn't exactly set media shutterbugs atwitter - likely because she's not (yet) a recognizable desi face on this side of the pond. At present, that position is solely staked out by one Freida Pinto. I, for one, had no idea she was in attendance until I saw a @MadhuriDixit tweet that clued me in. Anywho, PC pre-partied in an almost body-con Burberry number. The most notable elements of her look were her updo and cut-out heels. The former, I applaud. The latter, well, I'm not a fan. They remind me of tacky sandals one would have seen on Sri back in the '80s. I wish she'd gone for a strappy, metallic sandal or a peep toe pump.

Her dress for the actual Golden Globes was far more memorable. She wore a gunmetal grey Bibhu Mohapatra midi dress complete with voluminous tulle, loads of sequins, and a snazzy cut-out bodice. The slightly heavy-handed application of sequins aside, this dress makes a statement. When our journos finally figure out who she is, this is the kind of dress Team PC would want splashed across dailies, People.com homepages, and the like. Sadly, the boring ol' office pumps are way out of place here. But all in all, bold choices, and I'm hoping we'll be seeing more of PC Stateside.

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 …
