When I read that Prince William’s private voicemails to Kate Middleton had been read aloud in court as part of the ongoing phone hacking trial, I was mortified, especially because the transcripts included him referring to his future wife as “Babykins.” Oh my gosh, I thought, I can’t think of anything more embarrassing than the world knowing my dorky petnames for my boyfriend. My next thought? I should write a post where I tell the world my dorky petnames for my bofyriend. Alas, this is the life of a blogger. After the jump, I’m sharing some of the weird things my boyfriend and I call each other, and I would be eternally grateful if you’d share some of yours in the comments. Don’t leave Prince William and me hangin’! Keep reading »
I’m not trying to throw shade, but Pippa Middleton royally needs some help with her beauty game.Why does she have to go around in Forever 21 Couture with a deep orange Travolta tan and a face you can see your reflection in (contrary to rumors that old Pip loves herself a good powder session) while her oh-so-lucky sister the Duchess gets to be the darling of commoners and fashion editors alike? Not fair!
When Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, isn’t all glammed up for events, I think she is so freakin’ adorable. Is that disrespectful to say of a future princess? I just mean that she looks so relaxed and smiley, like a fun normal girl with exceptionally shiny, voluminous hair, that I want her to be my best pretty princess friend. Bonus points for looking downright fabulous in Yves Klein blue! So if we did happen to become best pretty princess friends, which is almost entirely possible, I would gently advise her to loosen up the vise grip on the black eye pencil, and steer her in the direction of a thin, clean liquid line on the upper lid. There is no reason that anyone, especially a girl as lovely and as married to Prince William as Kate, should be wearing such heavy-handed liner to a daytime sporting event (oh, just the Olympics). However, I will note that she is clearly magic, because she’s sitting in the sun and that stuff is not budging. I would die to know what’s inside Kate’s makeup bag, but I feel pretty confident that she will never, ever tell. That skin! It’s gotta be the bee venom.
