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

PJs For The Cure is offering two different designs for boys, three for girls, and three for women – including a mother-daughter matching set.

To kick off the campaign and bring awareness to this important issue (24 million Americans have diabetes, and a new case is diagnosed every 30 seconds in the U.S.), Spoiled Pretty is partnering for a giveaway.

One lucky lady will win a set of women’s pajamas (in winner’s choice of print). The pj’s feature cozy, super soft 100% cotton knit; inside pocket suitable for an insulin pump or iPod; ribbon drawstring and piping. These pajamas are great for sleeping and lounging. As I type this, I’m wearing the Grey Stripe Print jammies. They are so comfy and stylish that – for the past few days – I’ve been putting them on as soon as I get home from work. If I had the other two styles, I’d rotate them so I could could give my oversized tees and ugly sweatpants a much-needed rest.

pjs+for+the+cure+women PJs For The Cure, Plus A Giveaway!

To enter the giveaway, send an email to spoiledprettycontests@gmail.com. Be sure to include your full name and mailing address. The subject line should read “PJs For The Cure Giveaway.” The contest ends at midnight (EST) on Monday, November 9th. One winner will be chosen at random from among the entrants. On Tuesday, November 10th, I’ll announce the winner’s name. Please, only one entry per person; duplicate entries will not increase your chances of winning. Contest is open to U.S. residents.

Sonia Kashuk Curl for a Cause Eyelash Curler

Posted on by daneen in Charity, Eyes, Lashes | Leave a comment

Sonia+Kashuk+BCRF+Curl+for+a+Cause+Eyelash+Curler Sonia Kashuk Curl for a Cause Eyelash CurlerThey say you should always curl your lashes before applying mascara for doe eyed, fabulous fringe. I must admit that I hardly ever curl my lashes…but I probably would if I had this eyelash curler in my makeup kit.

Breast cancer survivor and professional makeup artist Sonia Kashuk and Target are joining forces to support The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. With 15% of the purchase price of the Curl for a Cause Eyelash Curler ($9.99) going to support BCRF’s mission to prevent and find a cure in our lifetime, it’s one more beautiful way to fight the fight against breast cancer.

This item is available online and in Target stores.
