If You Have Hair, The Wet Brush is a Must Have


For years, I have used an oversized wide-tooth comb to detangle my notoriously impossible to detangle post-shampoo hair. The amount of hair that would get caught in the teeth was somewhat alarming. But I chalked it up to the fact that I only wash my hair once a week - so maybe the hair loss really wasn't all that CONTINUE READING

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Cover April Issue of Vogue


Welp, folks, it looks like Kanye finally wore Anna Wintour down and got his baby mama a coveted Vogue cover. So the rumors were true. There was buzz a few months back that Kim would cover the fashion bible, but then everyone assumed it would be a foreign Vogue - given Anna's alleged aversion to all things Kardashian. I CONTINUE READING

Kenzo Belle de Jour Giveaway!

Posted on by daneen in Contest, Giveaway, Moisturizer, Skin Care | 7 Comments

kenzo+belle+de+jour Kenzo Belle de Jour Giveaway!
Listen up, ladies. There’s a new moisturizer in town – and I am so enamored, I just cannot keep it on the DL.

KENZO’s new face cream, Belle de Jour enhances the skin’s natural beauty by protecting it from free radicals and the harmful stress hormone – Cortisol. High levels of Cortisol increase blood pressure and can weaken the immune system, making the body prone to illness and fat accumulation.

In clinical studies conducted by LVMH CEC (Cosmetic Evaluation Center), 75% of women using Belle de Jour showed a drop in their Cortisol levels by 25% after a single application. Further tests show a 28% reduction in reactive oxygenated elements (free radicals) on the skin’s surface.

White lotus, long regarded as a sacred flower in Asia, is at the heart of its secret formula. White lotus water, grown and harvested specially for KENZO in East Asia, has proven relaxing and anti-free radical effects. This natural and potent ingredient helps restore skin to its natural balance by stimulating cellular metabolism, leaving it luminous and soft. It is suitable for all skin types and may be used day and night.

belle+de+jour Kenzo Belle de Jour Giveaway!Belle de Jour is quite possibly the most luxurious face cream I’ve ever used. In addition to reducing Cortisol levels and protecting against free radicals, this voluptuous moisturizer soothes and increases radiance. While Belle de Jour is one heck of a hydrator, the fragrance is the selling point. Without hesitation, I would say that Belle de Jour is one of the best smelling beauty products I’ve ever met; and as you know, I get around.

When I apply Belle de Jour in the middle of my harried morning routine, it calms me and makes me slow my pace just a little. And I love slathering it on right before bed, so that I can breathe in its delicate perfume as it lulls me to sleep. If KENZO wants to make a gazillion dollars, they’ll create an entire line of skincare, bodycare and fragrance with this exact bouquet. I would buy every single thing. You hear me, KENZO?

One lucky reader is going to hear me loud and clear, because Spoiled Pretty and KENZO are giving away one 1.7 oz jar of Belle de Jour (retail value $105!).

To enter, send an email to spoiledprettycontests@gmail.com. Be sure to include your full name and mailing address. The subject line should read “Belle de Jour Giveaway.” The contest ends at midnight (EST) on Saturday, February 7th. One winner will be chosen at random from among the entrants. On Sunday, February 8th, 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. and Canadian residents only.

love+enamel+bangle All You Need Is Love Enamel Bracelet Giveaway
The Beatles speak the truth. But while love may be all you need, who wouldn’t want this chic Love Enamel Bracelet by Cynthia Holvey?

cynthia+h All You Need Is Love Enamel Bracelet GiveawaySouthern California designer Cynthia Holvey (and cousin of George Clooney) created a line of trend-setting, inspirational bracelets inscribed with empowering affirmations. The collection – including enamel bangles, leather and metal bracelets, and an eco-friendly organic cotton bracelet – have become popular with celebrities such as Christina Applegate, Kristen Bell, Kristin Chenoweth, Jennifer Garner, Kourtney Kardashian, Olivia Wilde, and Michelle Trachtenberg.

“I designed the line to have an edge but be classic enough to go with any outfit. More importantly, the jewelry is meant to inspire, motivate and empower people. I never leave the house without a bracelet and when I look down at my wrist I have a better day,” says Holvey.

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Spoiled Pretty has teamed up with Cynthia H Designs for a giveaway. Three readers will win a Love Enamel Bangle. The metal and enamel bracelet offers a repeating artistic display of scripted inspirational sayings (Love Who You Are, Follow Your Passion, Live In The Moment, Love & Laugh). The dual-colored bracelet is available in color combinations light blue/gold, pink/silver, fuchsia/gold, black/silver, and white/gold. The Love Bangles retail for $65 each.
