Frxxxtion Stick

Tarte Skincare recently introduced this innovative little cleanser. Designed for all skin types, it's particularly targeted for those with oily skin, pore concerns, and uneven skin tone. The nifty little Frxxxtion Stick is also touted as a three-in-one exfoliator, cleanser, and face mask. Now, I'll be honest, I was only interested in the first two; I have several face masks to which I am deeply committed (but more on that later). After dampening your skin, you simply twist up the product and gently rub it all over your face. The sensation is mildly gritty. After massaging it into your skin with your fingertips, you just rinse and blot your face dry. Quick and easy! 

I would definitely not use it to remove makeup even though it is a suggested use. Rubbing the stick into a face full of makeup would just gunk up the stick. It's good for a quick morning cleanse though, or a post work-out once over. I probably won't be using it as my daily cleanser. But it will free up space in my travel kit; plus no spill worries since it's a solid. The best quality about this product is its portability. I'm keeping it for my travel kit.

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…

Archives: Kunal Nayyar Weds Neha Kapur

TV's lovably neurotic astrophysicist Rajesh Koothrapali (aka Kunal N) married former Miss India Neha Kapur in a lavish round of ceremonies in Delhi back in December. Thankfully the real life Kunal doesn't require booze to talk to women - otherwise these two would be headed for a very silent or very drunk married life. Cheers to the happy couple. Here are a couple of snaps from Neha's mehendi ceremony and from their Big Fat Indian wedding reception. I hear it was a small, family affair with only about 1,000 people in attendance. Check out a slideshow of their nuptials here.
