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

 Sweet Treat: Jaqua Raspberry Buttercream Giveaway
When the temperature starts to dip, I start craving sweets. Once in a blue moon, I’ll indulge my sweet tooth with Dark Chocolate M&Ms – but my diet only allows for the occasional dalliance. Fortuitously, my beauty arsenal is stocked with products from Jaqua, which all smell so decadently delish, that I’m tempted to taste. Oh, who am I kidding? I have tasted – and unfort, the flavor doesn’t quite correspond with the scrumptious scent. Anyway, moving on…

I am a huge fan of dessert-smelling bath and body products, and I can say – without hesitation – that Jaqua’s Buttercream Frosting offerings take the cake. Literally. I want to lick myself every time I use the Buttercream products (there I go again). Jaqua’s Raspberry Buttercream Frosting Collection, a yummy marriage of juicy raspberry and sweet cream, is the newest addition to the menu. The fragrance is so mouth-watering that I couldn’t bear salivating solo.

So Spoiled Pretty has partnered with Jaqua for a giveaway! One grand prize winner will receive:

kiehls Shower With Brad Pitt

Wanna take a shower with Brad Pitt? Child, who doesn’t?! Now you can, courtesy of Kiehl’s.

bp Shower With Brad PittKiehl’s, in partnership with Brad, has launched Aloe Vera Biodegradable Liquid Body Cleanser – which provides refreshing and gentle cleansing without parabens or dyes. The formula biodegrades in the earth within 28 days, and is packaged in a 100% food-grade, post-consumer recycled (PCR) bottle. And Brad believes in the product so much that he put his stamp of approval on the bottle (his handwriting graces the label).

“Kiehl’s formulated this product to minimize the impact we have on our environment. All proceeds will go to benefit green initiatives around the globe.” -Brad Pitt

Kiehl’s Aloe Vera Biodegradable Liquid Body Cleanser isn’t some fly by night fad. It isn’t limited-edition…rather, it has taken up permanent residence among Kiehl’s other bath and body collection. Get it in-stores, at Kiehl’s counters and online.

It’s Fresh, Exciting*: New Products From Fresh, Coming This Fall

fresh+fall+2008 Its Fresh, Exciting*: New Products From Fresh, Coming This Fall
This fall, Fresh will expand its fragrance portfolio with a new scent, Strawberry Flowers, created in celebration of Sephora’s 10th anniversary. The company is also expanding its bath and body, skin care and makeup offerings with a bevy of new beauty products.

Launching exclusively at Sephora in September, Strawberry Flowers Eau de Parfum is a fruity floral scent, designed specifically for a younger, Sephora customer. The fragrance, inspired by the scents of a typical spring morning, is composed of top notes of mandarin, yuzu and white peach, middle notes of mountain strawberries, freesia, orange blossom and osmanthus, and base notes of orris, musk and white woods.

Also in September, Fresh will debut the Fig Apricot body care collection, based on its top-selling Fig Apricot Eau de Parfum, which launched a decade ago. The collection will include a bath/shower gel and a body cream and will be sold at Barneys, Neiman Marcus, Sephora, Saks Fifth Avenue and Bluemercury.

Fresh’s fall color collection includes the Imperial Bedroom Face Palette, and a new Firebird Mascara. The palette’s cream-based colors include iridescent pearl and warm antique gold eye shades, an opalescent black eyeliner, a shimmer highlighter for the cheeks and a deep red gloss for the lips. Inspired by a Russian fairy tale and based on the company’s best-selling mascara, Fresh Supernova, Firebird is designed to thicken, lengthen and curl lashes. “Supernova gives your lashes a thick, dark and more defined look, whereas the soft lightweight fibers on the Firebird brush gives it a feathery and flirty feel,” said Alina Roytberg, Fresh’s co-founder and creative director.

Fresh+Twilight+Freshface+Glow Its Fresh, Exciting*: New Products From Fresh, Coming This FallFresh has also come out with Twilight Freshface Glow, a multifunctional illuminating cream. The primer is designed to be used as a highlighter along cheekbones, brow bones and décolletage. On the retail front, Fresh has plans to open several freestanding stores by the end of the year.

This month, the company will open a location in Century City, Calif., followed by another store in Dallas’ Northpark Center in October. The company is also looking to open a store in Philadelphia (oh please, please…with Sugar Lip Treatment on top!) along with additional stores in the Northeast.

Amazing Grace Winner!

Posted on by daneen in Bath and Body, Contest, Giveaway | 1 Comment

philosophy amazing grace Amazing Grace Winner!
Monday’s are rough. I know. Half of you are wishing it was still Sunday, because you didn’t accomplish half the things you’d planned on this past weekend. The other half has accepted that it’s a new week, but you’re mentally counting down the days til your next attempt at some R&R.

Kinda off topic, but you know who’s probably having a particularly manic Monday? Miss USA. For the second year in a row, Miss USA tripped during the evening gown competition. In 2007, Rachel Smith took a little tumble and landed on her tailbone. This year, Crystle Stewart followed in her predecessor’s awkward footsteps. Girlfriend’s hair was looking on-point, though.

So what I guess I’m getting at is that today may be difficult for you…but at least the universe isn’t making fun of your fine motor skills. And on that note, I’ll announce the winner of the Amazing Grace giveaway.

Cynthia Anne Peyson is the winner!!! She will receive an Amazing Grace gift set, which includes Perfumed Buffing Wash, Perfumed Shave Gel, and Perfumed Body Spritz.

Thanks to Philosophy for making this giveaway possible! Check back later today for the next contest announcement.

In the meantime, don’t forget to enter the Victoria’s Secret PINK giveaway – you could win a Zip Hoodie from the new PINK Collegiate Collection!
