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

I was just perusing Kim Kardashian’s blog (you know she’s one of my beauty icons) and she’s made a New Year’s resolution that I think you’ll be excited about. She’s decided to periodically post her absolute favorite beauty products – so makeup junkies like you and me can cop her style.

First up is her #1 pet eye pencil, Stila’s Kajal Eye Liner in Onyx.

Troy Jensen is the man behind Kim Kardashian’s 70′s inspired makeup at the Spike TV Video Game Awards. The makeup artist/photographer blogs, “Metallic gold and intense black-lined eyes with a soft pale pink mouth complimented her dress. I love creating new looks with Kim. She has a fantastic face to work on. In earlier events, I tried to keep it fresh and sexy but this time, I wanted to give Kim a red-carpet look reminiscent of early 1970′s Cher.”

To create the look, Jensen used Revlon products. He shares the following tip for creating the perfect 70s sheer: “Choose a lip shade one or two shades brighter than your own in a salmon, rose, or raspberry pink lipstick. Pat on with your fingertips then blot with a tissue. Top with sheer gold lip gloss.”

Whatcha think of Kimmy’s look? Can you dig it?

Brace yourselves, Twilighters. Rob Pattinson just cut his hair.

Okay…deep breaths…

No statement has been released about the reasons behind the chop. But Spoiled Pretty speculates that the haircut is just the shy star’s attempt at being a little less conspicuous. Or carpal tunnel set in after months of clawing his matted mane out of his face.

For best use of hair accessories, the award goes to Rihanna. RiRi would like to thank the academy…Star Academy, that is.

rhinestone+hair+pins For Best Use Of Hair Accessories, The Award Goes To RihannaOn Friday night’s season finale of the French singing competition, Rihanna accessorized her faux hawk with a halo of Swarovski crystal hair pins.

The looks that Rihanna (or her stylist) comes up with boggles the mind.

You don’t need a superstar budget to recreate this look. These rhinestone hair pins (above left) are only $20 for a set of six at Beautiful Bridal (I purchased my bridal tiara via this online retailer and was beyond pleased).

Last night, my sis emailed me the link to Rihanna’s Rehab video. After watching it, I was like, “Sasha who? Beyonce can wear all the Gareth Pugh she wants to…this girl is FIERCE.”

I have to admit that the music vid plot lacks imagination. Truthfully, I could have written a better script. But who needs a story when you have Miss RiRi and Timberlake steaming up the desert? And her makeup…flawless! It don’t get no better than the kohl-rimmed eye/crimson lip combo she sports in this video.

Jimeale New York Giveaway!

Posted on by daneen in Celebrities, Contest, Giveaway, Makeup Case | 3 Comments

ossington Jimeale New York Giveaway!
Going somewhere? Taking a trip sometime soon? Well listen up because I’m hosting another giveaway – and this one is a beaut. This week, Spoiled Pretty is teaming up with Jimeale New York!

A year ago, Aussie designer and entrepreneur Jimeale Jorgensen launched a collection of pretty and practical travel accessories. And in a very short amount of time, Jimeale turned a single inspiration into a pretty spiffy line of cosmetic bags, diaper totes, men’s toiletry bags, shower caps and weekend totes.

jimeale+diaper+bag Jimeale New York Giveaway!The idea for her collection came while on holiday in Miami. Horrified by her friend’s “daggy” (Australian for “hot mess”) makeup bag, Jimeale started sketching – and a brand was born. Jimeale’s designs are fun, functional and sensibly priced. Naomi Watts and Isla Fisher are fans of the brand…and her diaper bags are so stylish that even a bloke like Borat doesn’t mind sporting one.

Kelly Rutherford, of Gossip Girl fame, says “I believe in Jimeale and love her bags. She makes great products at even better prices and donates a portion of her profits to charity and we love that! With her bags, the entire family travels in style.”

You too can travel in style because three of you will win a Jimeale New York Flat Pack Travel Cosmetic Bag in Ossington (lime green w/ white polka dots)!!!

ossington inside Jimeale New York Giveaway!
The Flat Pack Travel Cosmetic Bag is the perfect toiletries case for traveling. With individual compartments, it protects against leaks and spills. You can “flat pack” it, which means no more sitting on your port (aka suitcase) to close it. It zips open to lay flat and has two separate-lined zip compartments for earrings and personal treasures. Then there are two large clear zip areas to fit full-sized bottles, moisturizers, cleansers and more! Perfect for weekend getaways or to keep your makeup organized, it’s double lined on the inside with signature chocolate and white stripe – Jimeale’s favorite!

To enter, send an email to spoiledprettycontests@gmail.com. The subject line should read “Jimeale New York Giveaway.” The contest ends at midnight (EST) on Sunday, December 14th. Three winners will be chosen at random from among the entrants. On Monday, December 15th, I’ll announce the winners’ names. Please, only one entry per person; duplicate entries will not increase your chances of winning. Contest is open to U.S. and Canadian residents only.

Good luck!
