UPDATED Royal Tour India: Meeting with PM Modi

After a morning clearly enjoyed by TRH and the children at the Salaam Baalak center, TRH made a quick change for lunch at Hyderabad House with PM Modi. After a fantastic sartorial selection in the morning, HRH made another exquisite choice with a jade Temperley London midi-dress. The beautiful lace and the high neck lend this outfit an almost Victorian quality along with her hair in an elegant up-do. I love everything about this!
In keeping with what I said earlier about the personal interests of TRH really shining through on this tour, Victoria Murphy of the "Mirror" provides further anecdotal evidence. Per Ms. Murphy, Wills specifically requested a meeting with Indian women who work to help other women in order to better understand challenges faced by girls and women in India. To that end, TRH had a private meeting with women's rights advocates. The @stopacidattacks campaign was specifically discussed alongside Ms. Laxmi Agarwal who we've discussed here. Laxmi is a survivor of a brutal acid attack, and has turned into a powerful voice, victim advocate, fashion model, spokesperson....in short, she has leapt well beyond the category of "victim".

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…

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.

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 …
