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

Spoiled Pretty By Perlina

Posted on by daneen in Contest, Fashion Week, Giveaway, Handbags | 54 Comments

This time last week, I was runnin’ around NYC feeling awful (unbeknownst to me, I had acute bronchitis), but looking fierce – thanks to my pals at Perlina Handbags.

fw2+039 Spoiled Pretty By PerlinaThey gave me a totally posh purse for my last day at the tents. As if that wasn’t enough, they upped the ante by inviting me to their showroom…talk about being spoiled pretty!

The Perlina showroom – located a hop, skip, and a jump from Bryant Park – was like a dream; it was handbag heaven, to be quite honest.

fw2+041 Spoiled Pretty By PerlinaThere were bags of every color imaginable, and purses for every personality. For a bag junkie like me, it was almost too much. The temptation was great. For a brief moment, I imagined that I was on a handbag version of Supermaket Sweep; I scanned the shelves, racks, and displays – trying to decide which bags I’d grab first.

fw2+047 Spoiled Pretty By Perlina
I know what you’re thinking. You’re saying to yourself, “Great. Here’s another story about Daneen getting free stuff. I’m sick of hearing about her fantastical adventures.” Well, if that’s you’re attitude, you’re about to feel real salty…because Perlina has oh so generously bequeathed me another bag for a Spoiled Pretty giveaway!!!!

Oh, now we’re BFF’s again? I see how it is.

Felix Rey Giveaway!

fr Felix Rey Giveaway!
I don’t really fancy myself a trendsetter. But for New York Fashion Week, I pulled out all the stops. Nordstrom LBD. BCBG patent pumps. Oversized sunglasses. Designer handbags galore.

felixrey+009 Felix Rey Giveaway!Unfortunately, one of my most stylish accessories never saw the light of day because it stayed hidden in my purse. So it makes its debut tonight. Behold, my Felix Rey cosmetic case.

Check out the intricate lace motif and the logo zipper pull…super chic!

Felix Rey was born in 2001, when friends Lily Rafii and Sulaika Zarrouk decided to design accessories for the smart and stylish girl-about-town. They soon realized they were on to something when their bags started selling out at Bergdorf’s. Then fictional fashionista Carrie Bradshaw carried one of their bags on “Sex And The City” – and the rest, as they say, is history.

Today, Felix Rey continues to create haute handbags – as well as belts, wallets, umbrellas, and other small accessories that round out the line. They describe their customer as “the modern girl with a whimsical flair for style,” and their celebrity fans include Sarah Jessica Parker, Jennifer Lopez, Lucy Liu, Jessica Simpson, Anne Hathaway, and Paris Hilton – just to name a few.

I’m a huge fan too…which is why I am so thrilled to announce that Spoiled Pretty is giving away three of their cosmetic bags! Yay!! Thank you, Felix Rey!!!

To enter the giveaway, visit the Felix Rey website and find out who the company is named after. Then send an email to spoiledprettycontests@gmail.com – be sure to include the answer and your full name. The subject line should read “Felix Rey Giveaway.”

The contest ends at 9 pm EST on Sunday, February 17th. Winners will be chosen at random from among the entrants. On Monday, February 18th, I’ll announce the winners’ names. Please, only one comment per person; duplicate comments will not increase your chances of winning. Contest is open to U.S. & Canadian residents. Good luck!

Valentine’s Day Gifts For Him – Plus Anthony Logistics For Men Giveaway!

Posted on by daneen in Contest, Giveaway, Male Grooming | 5 Comments

71262859 Valentines Day Gifts For Him   Plus Anthony Logistics For Men Giveaway!
Since you’re reading this, I’m going to assume that you’re a fellow beauty addict. Do you wish your man would graduate from the deodorant soap and take a little better care of his skin? Well, instead of having a heart to heart with your personal care-challenged better half, give him a nudge in the right direction this Valentine’s Day.

A few months back, Anthony Logistics For Men sent me some products for my husband to try. Graham is a mountain man that abhors anything that can’t be purchased at the drugstore, so I had to introduce the products in a very non-pushy way. I unwrapped the products and placed them in strategic spots in the bathroom; I put the Strength Shower Gel in the shower caddy, the Strength Body Spray and Glycerin Hand & Body Lotion in the bathroom cabinet, and the One Step Cleansing Bar by the sink (you’ve gotta make it easy for them, trust me).

Well, guess what? Graham loved them. He gave the products a ringing endorsement – especially the lotion, which is surprising because he hardly ever moisturizes. He said, “The lotion smelled like oranges, which I liked. And despite being a glycerin based lotion, it wasn’t too greasy…it passes the doorknob test.”

You see? He probably won’t purchase these grooming products for himself. But if you buy them for him, he’ll love you for it…and his skin will too. And as a bonus, many of the brands offerings are female-friendly too. So you can share – and isn’t that what relationships are all about?

Wanna introduce your man to some guy grooming products? Anthony Logistics For Men has generously agreed to sponsor a Spoiled Pretty giveaway. One winner will receive the Essentials Starter Kit.

The set includes:

Anthony EssentialsKit Valentines Day Gifts For Him   Plus Anthony Logistics For Men Giveaway!*Glycolic Facial Cleanser
*Shave Cream
*All purpose Facial Moisturizer
*Lip Balm
*Body Cleansing Gel
*Glycerin Hand and Body Lotion
*Storage Container

This prize is a $67 value!

To enter the giveaway, send an email to spoiledprettycontests@gmail.com and include your full name. The subject line should read “Anthony Logistics For Men Contest. “

The contest ends at 9 pm EST on Sunday, February 17th. A winner will be chosen at random from among the entrants. On Monday, February 18th, I’ll announce the winner’s name. Please, only one comment per person; duplicate comments will not increase your chances of winning. Contest is open to U.S. & Canadian residents. Good luck!
