Because Shaving is the Pits: DERMAdoctor Gorilla Warfare Antiperspirant Giveaway!


My hair grows like a weed. Unfortunately, the hair of which I speak is not on my head. My legs and underarms give my razor a workout. If I shave in the morning, by afternoon, I've got stubble. And forget about skipping days...unless I want to look like Sasquatch. Getting rid of the hair is not only expensive (I CONTINUE READING

The shower and my chemically-straightened hair are frenemies. Every seventh day when I wash my hair, they get along great in a shampoo Shangri-la. But the rest of the week, I employ a shower cap to keep the steam from undoing the silky straightness. I have been wearing shower caps since I was a child, and I’ve tried them CONTINUE READING

Get Catty With Wildfox Catfarer Sunglasses


I've been searching for some cat eye sunnies for forever. On a whim, I bought these Wildfox Catfarer Sunglasses from Shopbop - hoping that they wouldn't look too cartoonish. Even though I was afraid they'd be too large, I'm digging the oversized frames. They make a statement without overwhelming my face. And the cat eye shape is subtle, so it's not CONTINUE READING

I'm home on maternity leave, so I spend an inordinate amount of time nursing my daughter, burping her and changing her diapers - all the while, watching hours of QVC.

dermadoctor gorilla warfare hair minimizing antiperspirant Because Shaving is the Pits: DERMAdoctor Gorilla Warfare Antiperspirant Giveaway!My hair grows like a weed. Unfortunately, the hair of which I speak is not on my head. My legs and underarms give my razor a workout. If I shave in the morning, by afternoon, I’ve got stubble. And forget about skipping days…unless I want to look like Sasquatch. Getting rid of the hair is not only expensive (I go through a lot of razors) – it’s also tedious and annoying. There are many days that I make certain clothing choices so I don’t have to go through the trouble of shaving.

So when I heard that one of my favorite skincare brands, DERMAdoctor, has a hair-minimizing antiperspirant, I emailed them with a quickness to ask for a sample I could review for Spoiled Pretty.

Here’s how DERMAdoctor describes Gorilla Warfare:

No need to go ape over jungle-like hair growth and rain forest-level wetness. Stop monkeying around with the ordinary and make peace with two decidedly indelicate concerns with a solution uniquely camouflaged as a daily antiperspirant. It contains fourteen highly evolved botanicals that help turn underarm hair into an endangered species. CONTINUE READING

The shower and my chemically-straightened hair are frenemies. Every seventh day when I wash my hair, they get along great in a shampoo Shangri-la. But the rest of the week, I employ a shower cap to keep the steam from undoing the silky straightness. I have been wearing shower caps since I was a child, and I’ve tried them all. And no matter how much they cost – from the flimsy free ones you swipe from a hotel to the more expensive caps – they’ve always let me down. They inadvertently allow moisture in. Or the elastic band loosens, allowing strands of hair to escape the shower cap and get all soaked up. Don’t you just HATE that?

After decades of the shower (and sub par shower caps) putting a damper on my do, I didn’t think it was possible to make it an entire week without steam wrecking my blow dry/flat iron handiwork. That is, until I discovered The Perfect Shower Cap from BlowPro four years ago. Seriously, the name does not exaggerate. CONTINUE READING

Even though I was afraid they’d be too large, I’m digging the oversized frames. They make a statement without overwhelming my face. And the cat eye shape is subtle, so it’s not too retro. Even when I’m running errands with the baby, I feel like a movie star in these sunglasses.

tatcha ad Tatcha, Im So Glad I Gotcha

I’m home on maternity leave, so I spend an inordinate amount of time nursing my daughter, burping her and changing her diapers – all the while, watching hours of QVC. I don’t know what it is, but I am mesmerized by QVC demonstrations. If I’m channel surfing and I happen to land on QVC, it’s damn near impossible for me to change the station.

Anyway, a few weeks ago, I caught a demonstration from a beauty brand I’d never heard of: Tatcha. Victoria Tsai, the brand’s creator, was talking about the inspiration behind the brand (ancient Geisha skincare traditions) and demonstrating some skincare products - and she had my undivided attention. And I’m not easily impressed. I was this close to ordering, but I’m sleep-deprived and ended up passing out before I got a chance to order. The next week, I was so preoccupied that I forgot about Tatcha – until they sent me an email. They offered to send me some products to sample. And after using them for the past few weeks, I am ADDICTED. No…seriously. I now have a legitimate Tatcha habit.

tatcha ritual discovery kit Tatcha, Im So Glad I GotchaTatcha sent me their Ritual Discovery Kit, to introduce me to the brand. The kit contains four of their core skincare products:

  • PURE One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil
  • POLISHED Rice Enzyme Powder
  • RADIANT Deep Brightening Serum
  • SUPPLE Moisture Rich Silk Cream

I’m a busy woman and I like to keep my daily beauty routine streamlined. So if you would have told me that my morning routine would involve using four products, I would’ve rolled my eyes. But not only am I using these products faithfully every day, I actually look forward to it. CONTINUE READING
