The Long Good-Bye

Dear readers,

It’s been a long time coming– Jolie Asie is nearing its end. My life has changed, and so have my interests and commitments. I have been honored to have the opportunity to provide you with the information and advice you sought on my blog. I hope that in at least some small way, Jolie Asie has been able to make your life a little more beautiful.

UPDATE (12/11/13): Based on the feedback I’ve received from my readers, I have decided to postpone deleting the blog indefinitely. It may happen one day, but for now, it will remain. Please keep in mind I will no longer be answering requests for makeup breakdowns and the like.

Thank you for your love, support, and the insightful questions and comments you’ve left for me at Jolie Asie. It’s been fun!

Hi ladies! As I mentioned earlier, I’ve moved to New York City for the summer, and I’m loving it! Life in NYC is crazy, breakneck, and beautiful, so I hardly have any time to think, let alone blog. But I had to share this with you– I was out tonight for a late dinner and ran into Hrithik Roshan and Arjun Rampal at Buddakan in Chelsea Market!

Hrithik Roshan and Meg

For those of you who are wondering, Hrithik is very sweet and absolutely as gorgeous in real life as he is on camera.

Rest in Peace, Jiah Khan

The incomparably beautiful Nafisa Khan– also known as Jiah Khan— who debuted opposite Amitabh Bachchan in Nishabd, has passed away. I had the chance to interact with her briefly after posting a makeup breakdown of her look in the film, and she was very sweet. A talented young woman, she is gone from the industry and the world too soon.

Thank You for Half a Million Views!


image courtesy wordpressReaders– Jolie Asie has reached a new milestone today: half a million views! A big, big thank you for your viewership, your love and support, and your insightful comments and feedback. I’ve not done any publicity for this blog– it’s grown because of YOU! Please remember to tell your friends and family about JA and we’ll continue to expand our community.

And as always, I want to know what you think and what you want to learn more about! More everyday beauty tips? Skincare advice? More on fashion? Beauty interviews? Celebrity interviews? More/fewer makeup breakdowns? More on Ayurveda and ancient beauty secrets? Let me know what you would like to see!

Good afternoon JA readers! I wanted to share with you a quick update re: makeup breakdown requests. Due to shifting priorities in my personal life and work-related commitments, I will no longer be able to regularly fulfill makeup breakdown requests. Today I’ve finished the backlog of requests that I had agreed to complete; if I had previously agreed to a breakdown request that you do not see on the blog/Twitter, please let me know.

I will continue to post on Jolie Asie when I can, but in the future will be focusing on How to Look/Dress Like guides, celebrity interviews, and health, beauty, and wellness topics, as opposed to makeup breakdowns. Please feel free to continue to submit makeup breakdown requests, though; if there is one in particular that catches my eye, I will post it. I am asking, however, that you do not wait with baited breath or hold any expectations in this regard. Thanks for understanding! 🙂

I’m incredibly sorry for my non-existent presence on this blog!  But that will all change starting next week.  Just got back to the U.S. last weekend and, unfortunately, couldn’t get AT&T over to install internet at my condo until early next week.

So, to tide you all over until then, I give you 

It’s a super cheesy ad, but Takeshi makes it a must watch.  I almost want to trade my Mac in for a Sony.  Almost.
