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

Bath & Body Works Cooling Gel Lotion Needs A New Name


A few weeks ago, I paid a visit to my local Bath & Body Works store. I was on the hunt for a tropical-smelling body wash that wouldn't break the bank, and B&BW seemed like a good place to search. When I entered the store, I was greeted my a really nice saleswoman who asked me what I was CONTINUE READING

Laura Mercier Master Class: Makeup Bag Must-Haves in Your 30s


Every month, my girlfriends from college and I get together for dinner in the Philadelphia area. We started this tradition about two years ago, and - of course - we have a great time catching up and reminiscing!  Most of them are product-obsessed (like me), and most have been through some sort of make-up introductory when we became "of age" to wear it.  Now CONTINUE READING

Posted on by daneen in Celebrities, Conditioner, Contest, Giveaway, Hair, Hair Styling, Shampoo | 6 Comments

Lately, my hair has been smelling like fish…and I love it!

ag fastfood Addicted To Fast Food, Plus An AG Giveaway!AG Hair Cosmetics fast food leave on condition nourishes and detangles my dehydrated hair. Plus the delish, saccharine scent reminds me of Swedish Fish – one of my four major food groups when I was in college.

fast food’s light cream formula doesn’t weigh down my baby fine locks, and helps prevent split ends, adds moisture, and shine. AG’s #1 conditioner is especially effective on coarse, thick hair.

Deseo Winner Writes Back

Deseo Deseo Winner Writes Back
Paula, one of the Deseo giveaway winners, sent me this glowing review of her prize:

I was one of the winners of the Deseo spray and lotion contest that you had recently. I wanted to email you and rave about how much I love this scent. I must admit, I didn’t know what to expect, being a celebrity fragrance, but this is just wonderful. I am not good with “fragrance notes” but I do know what smells good and good on me – and this definitely shines. I have been layering the scent almost every morning since I recieved it, and have gotten many compliments from co-workers wanting to know what I was wearing – and then being surprised to know it was a Jennifer Lopez scent.

My 74-year-old mother was there when I opened it, so I put it on her, too. It smelled different on her, but still equally pleasant. She was quite taken with it, so now I am keeping a close eye on my bathroom to make sure it doesn’t mysteriously move into hers. icon smile Deseo Winner Writes Back

So, it’s definitely good for different types and admired by many. I want to thank you sincerely for offering this contest and I am so happy to have won and let you know my opinions.

Philly’s Got A Brand New Bag – Plus A LILL Giveaway!

phillylill Philly’s Got A Brand New Bag – Plus A LILL Giveaway!
Last week, I had the pleasure of touring 1154 LILL Studio‘s newest boutique. The 1154 LILL “design your own handbag” concept was born at a Windy City street fair in 1999 – and since its inception, 1154 LILL Studio has opened stores in Chicago, Boston, and Kansas City. I’m so excited that they’ve found a home in my hometown, Philadelphia.

paula floralpink Philly’s Got A Brand New Bag – Plus A LILL Giveaway!The Philadelphia boutique boasts 1000 square feet, with wooden design tables throughout the space where customers can create the bag/accessory of their choice by mixing and matching some of the 150 available fabrics. The styles offered range from small cosmetic bags and headbands to large handbags and oversized totes, and cost between $26 and $200.

After touring the premises and hearing the company back story, I was elated to learn that 1154 LILL Studio was allowing me to create my own custom bag! For almost an hour, I played with fabrics, colors, and textures to make a fab bag for Spring. Here’s how the 1154 LILL Studio custom handbag concept works:

1) First pick your style of bag from over 25 current shapes and silhouettes in the line.

2) Mix and match colors, patterns and textures to select the right choice for each part of your bag: exterior, interior, pockets, straps, etc. 1154 LILL Studio introduces new fabrics every few weeks and have between 150 – 300 designer textiles available at any given time.

3) After placing your order, you simply have to wait 3 to 4 weeks for the 1154 LILL Studio team to hand craft it to your exact specifications. Your order will be shipped to you, or you can pick it up in one of the boutique locations.

Even though my bag is currently in the hands of the Chicago-based production team, here’s a sneak peek at my Spoiled Pretty satchel…

ANDI Philly’s Got A Brand New Bag – Plus A LILL Giveaway!
Adorable, right? Even if you don’t reside anywhere near one of their boutiques, a one-of-a-kind 1154 LILL Studio creation is at your fingertips – thanks to their online store. 1154lill.com is open 24/7 – and the customization tool lets you see your bag as you design it.

GiftCert Philly’s Got A Brand New Bag – Plus A LILL Giveaway!Wait…it gets better. 1154 LILL Studio has graciously donated a $100 gift certificate, so that one lucky Spoiled Pretty reader can design her very own creation!
