A few weeks ago, Philadelphia Style Magazine interviewed me for a feature on their website. Since I’m a beauty junkie and can’t resist the opportunity to dish on my favorite products, the story evolved into “Daneen Baird of Spoiled Pretty’s 6 Fall Beauty Picks.” As a Philly gal (born and raised) and a big fan of the magazine (I made the print edition back in 2008 – less than a year after launching this blog), it was awesome to come full circle and to be profiled again. Here’s how they introduced me…
Beauty blogger extraordinaire and Philadelphia resident Daneen Baird knows a thing or two about putting your best face forward. At the helm of the award-winning website, Spoiled Pretty, Baird is constantly ahead-of-the-trend and in-the-know when it comes to the latest and greatest in beauty products and cosmetics. From nail polish reviews to insider tricks of the trade, Baird dishes it all with a bit of sass.

When I was a young girl, one of my favorite pastimes was sitting in front of my mom’s mirrored closet doors and “playing QVC.” I would pretend to be Kathy Levine, meticulously describing each necklace, bracelet and pair of earrings in my mother’s jewelry box – using terms like Black Hills Gold, Diamonique and lobster claw clasp.
Twenty-some odd years later, I’m still a fan of QVC. My favorite show is Friday Night Beauty with Lisa Robertson – and if I didn’t have such excellent self-control, that program might bankrupt me. When I watch FNB, I always get the urge to call in and share my thoughts on the products I’ve tried. But I get nervous and I never go through with it.
So when QVC recently approached me about being one of their featured bloggers for the All Access Beauty event (it kicks off this Friday, April 13 at 11:00 PM EST and will continue on all day Saturday, April 14), I jumped at the opportunity. As an All Access Beauty Blogger, I’m sharing my top beauty picks on QVC.com. And since I’m local, I’ll be traveling to their West Chester, PA studios on Saturday to go backstage and meet beauty rock stars like Kate Somerville, Mally and Josie Maran. (more…)

A few months ago, the lovely Lauren McCutcheon (Philadelphia Magazine’s Lifestyle Editor) invited me to their offices to play around with some local makeup lines and share my thoughts. When I arrived, splayed out on a table was a veritable buffet of beauty products, from fabulous brands in my own backyard: Carie Brescia, Tenshi Beauty Bar, sh. cosmetics, and Tu by Claudia.
Many thanks to Philadelphia Magazine for including me!
