Maybelline Great Lash Mascara, Royal Blue

I checked out Sephora and discovered Christian Dior’s Diorshow in Azure Blue.  However, this is fairly expensive ($24), so I wanted to opt for something less expensive and with the same intensity in color.  I just purchased the the Great Lash mascara by Maybelline in Royal Blue, and ok so Great Lash is considered the number one mascara in America and I don’t completely get it.  It seems like some kind of unexplained craze because I’ve used several less popular mascaras that have similar results, and others that produce different results but looks just as amazing.  Anyway, Great Lash in Royal Blue has an electric blue look from the container to the applicator and on the lashes, but only in bright light.  Under normal lighting the blue looks very dark, almost black once applied.  Still it’s a great mascara for a damn affordable price, and it’s a pretty good substitute so I’m keeping it.  The results:

I Drink Your Milkshake

I didn’t think Daniel Plainview’s affinity for milkshakes was that funny in the movie, but I caught a rerun of SNL the other night, the one with the There Will Be Blood parody, which originally aired at the end of Feb.  I was on the floor laughing on “I’ve abandoned my child”.


And then I found this…

FYI: iPhone 3G Locations

Apparently, the iPhone is costing AT&T a lot of money in subsidies.  Approximately, $325, which is pretty damn high.  Another detail I discovered is that only AT&T stores will provide and activate the iPhone 2.0 when it comes out July 11; not any Apple stores.



ew, the second generation still doesn’t have picture messaging.  what?! why is this simple feature so hard to include???

Cell Shopping: BlackBerry Curve 8310, LG Vu, iPhone 3G


I’m looking to purchase a new phone for multitasking purposes, but I also want something sleek and sexy.  So for the budget I’m working with, I’m researching the LG Vu and the BlackBerry Curve 8310.  I can’t decide.  And, of course, I’m looking into the new iPhone, reviews of which are always off the charts with positive feedback.  Anyhow, it’s on the bottom of the list until I feel like I’m not conforming if I start liking it.

A few helpful vids I found…

LG Vu:


An article on TechRadar briefly describes the differences and advantages between the BlackBerry Bold and iPhone 3G, concluding that these two devices are not as much a threat to each other than they are to Windows Mobile and Palm.

NBC entertainment: FAIL

Wow NBC is making a real fool of itself these days with the type of primetime summer shows the network is airing.  Programs titled Celebrity Circus, America’s Got Talent, Deal or No Deal and The Baby Borrowers just scream desparation.  They need a new network exec, for REAL.  What happened to the clever creators and great minds that approved television like The Office (US) and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air? I don’t know what is worse: that reality tv has come to such a point as to enforce “birth control” by way of using other’s children to prevent teen pregnancy for the purpose of entertainment, or that NBC, a network that had my respect, being the broadcaster of SNL, Friends, and Seinfeld, is considering such trash television as part of its family, let a lone putting them on during primetime.

Versace’s India

Earlier this month Donatella Versace presented her Resort 2009 collection, which caught my eye because of the pants in the line.  She married boyish elegance with Indian charm in creating them.  This is an ingenious combination because the traditional  South(east) Asian trousers, called Churidar, are made for both men and women.  I’m loving how they’re so similar to the everyday-hip skinny jeans.  I never caught this similarity or thought to wear my Churidar pyjamas with my everyday clothes.  Best to start slow and subtle because this is damn edgy.

Not A Wear


Last year I noticed kids sporting this tshirt around campus.  The creator of this very clever and powerful statement is Mike Mallah a student at Carolina.  If you’re interested in purchasing one or getting to know the designer hit up the site at  Apparently, this tshirt caught a lot of attention at the recent ADC Convention (American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee Convention).  Pictures are posted on the Not A Wear group on Facebook.

Some LoLcat Lovin

So my best friend got me into this internet craze known as LoLcats.  And at first they seem weird.  But, eventually they become hilarious.  And you begin to use and adopt a new diction and form of syntax…aptly called LOLspeak.  And also begin to find this very hilarious.  Like I did.  Witness…

Sari: Tradition With A Spin

so hot...The summer season has brought upon its usual wedding craze, which has brought up the question of attendance attire, and more specifically, my ultimate submission into Desi apparel, which I can’t say I absolutely hate.  I rarely get to wear these embellished, exquisite works of art, and usually when I do, ghagras and salwaar kameezes have thus far been my interest.  Recently, I’ve been eyeing the abundant stacks and hangers of saris that my mother has stocked in her closet.  A few designs I’m really liking these days…
