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

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: BlowPro Perfect Shower Cap


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

Peep My Polish: Revlon Top Speed Nail Enamel in Superstitious


Now that I have two kids - and the youngest being 6 weeks old - I needed to get better acquainted with quick-dry nail polish options. I hardly have time to do anything, let alone a DIY - so I needed to find some lacquers that fit my new lifestyle. Yesterday, while going my grocery shopping, I picked up Revlon CONTINUE READING

Tatcha, I'm 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 CONTINUE READING

spoiled+pretty+on+mystyle Spoiled Pretty Feature on mystyle.com

A few days ago, I was interviewed for mystyle.com, The Style Network’s website. And yesterday, they posted the feature to their blog!

The article is really engaging and complimentary…you should definitely check it out. Even if you visit me every day, you’re guaranteed to learn something new. I even give some shout outs to products that haven’t yet been reviewed on Spoiled Pretty – which makes this article a must read!

Many thanks to Sydne Summer for choosing me as a guinea pig, and for making me sound like I’m too cool for beauty school. Merci, Sydne!

Spoiled Pretty Featured in Russian Vogue!

SpoiledPrettyInVogue2 Spoiled Pretty Featured in Russian Vogue!

Spoiled Pretty has the best readers in the world, literally. Today, Galina from Skin Care and Beauty, sent me a scan of a Spoiled Pretty feature in Russian Vogue! She was looking through some back issues, and found an article about Spoiled Pretty in the May 2008 issue.

Author: Daneen from Philadelphia
Specialty: Cosmetics
Updated: Every day
Why should you read it: Daneen tries out all the new products and writes how she likes them, how long makeup lasts and if you should spend money on a product. She gives recommendations: for example, a body moisturizer with pink champagne and shea butter from Jaqua or a collection of “wedding makeup” by Bobbi Brown. She tells her readers about an interesting skin care line Cate’s Essentials created by SK-II for Cate Blanchett. And, by the way, Daneen also writes about men’s makeup.

Many thanks to Galina for the scan, and for her translation services!

Watch Me On The NBC 10! Show

daneen+baird+on+nbc+10+show Watch Me On The NBC 10! Show

Today, I appeared on the NBC 10! Show. You all know that I could fill the entire hour gabbing about beauty products…but, alas, I only had five minutes. At the top of the show, I shared some of my favorite money-saving tips, which include:

* Whenever you buy online, do a Google search for promotional/coupon codes and free shipping deals. You’d be surprised by how a few minutes of investigative work can save you a pretty penny.

* Sign up for a free rewards card at your favorite beauty retailers. With Sephora’s Beauty Insider Program, you accrue a point for every dollar you spend. When your ‘beauty bank’ hits 100 points, you can choose a deluxe sample. Plus, Sephora treats you to a deluxe beauty treat on your birthday. Stila Cosmetics just unveiled a similar program.

* Register your email with your favorite beauty brand or online retailers – to have news, coupons, and exclusive deals delivered to you inbox.

* My hairdresser is a longtime friend of the family, so we have a special arrangement. I bring in my own products and he gives me a discount. If you have a good relationship with your hairdresser, see if he/she would be amenable to a similar deal.

* Beauty schools offer salon services at discounted rates, so consider taking advantage of their menu of services.

A little later in the program, I returned with more tips and some fabulous budget beauty product recommendations!
