As a huge fan of Laura Mercier (I swear by the foundation primer and tinted moisturizer), I was so excited to see that Gilt.com has a nice assortment of beauty products currently on sale. There’s everything from sophisticated nail polish colors and soft mineral blush to lip glaze palettes and pencil sets to create an alluring smoky eye. Oh, and don’t miss the six exclusive, curated sets. Everything is up to 65% off retail prices!
Plus, now through March 29, take 30% off your Gilt.com order with promo code GILT30.

Shopbop.com, one of my favorite online retailers, is having a Friends & Family Sale. Now through October 17, take 25% off your purchase using coupon code INTHEFAMILY25.
Shopbop doesn’t have sales often, so I plan to take advantage of the savings. Here’s what I’ve got in my virtual shopping cart (I won’t get everything, but definitely a few pieces): (more…)
The Urban Decay Friends & Family Sale is happening RIGHT NOW at urbandecay.com and ends on 10/12. Which makes now the perfect time to spoil yourself with all of those items that have been lingering on your wish list. Or take this opportunity to start your holiday shopping early. Here are my product picks:
- Naked and Naked2 Palettes (they are the best eyeshadow palettes of ALL. FREAKING. TIME.)
- Eyeshadow Primer Potion
- 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils (Deviant, Stash and Zero are personal faves)
- All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray
Enter promo code FFHOLIDAY13 at checkout to receive 20% off your entire purchase (yes, girl…EVERYTHING).
I love me some Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencils. The Urban Decay website bills these babies as “the best eye pencils ever, ever, ever.” And it’s truth…every word of it. If you don’t own at least one of these liners by now, what are you doing? Are you just reading Spoiled Pretty for the hell of it? I’m trying to help you, girls! In these trying economic times, a woman needs an eyeliner that she can depend on. And this one, my friends, is as good as it gets. If I had to pick my favorite beauty product of all time (which is so hard…it’s like picking your favorite child), Urban Decay’s eyeliners are it.
Anyways, Urban Decay’s 10 vintage shades are now on sale at urbandecay.com and Sephora for $9.50. They’re originally $19.00, ladies – so this is HUGE. Whether you’re an Urban Decay newbie or longtime fan, this is prime time to stock up. All of the colors are fabulous and fun, but if you only have one Alexander Hamilton to spend, I highly recommend Deviant, a bold blue. Apply it to the waterline and wait for the compliments to come rolling in.
I just had to share how much I adore this Susana Monaco Flutter Tube Dress I just bought from Shopbop.com. I’m usually very hesitant to buy clothing online because I’m short and curvy and I can’t be assured that something will look right until I try it on. And even when I do buy clothes off the Internet, they’re almost always petite clothes because the proportions on regular clothes make me look like I got dressed in front of a funhouse mirror. But I decided to take a chance on this dress because a) I don’t have any cute going out dresses in my closet, b) this dress is so cute it’s ridiculous and c) it’s on sale for 50% off.
Well, I’m glad I decided to live dangerously because the dress fits amazing and is the most flattering thing I’ve bought in a long time. The double-jersey knit hugs without being restrictive. Plus since it’s not thin, you don’t have to worry about it showing any lumps and bumps. The peplum on top of the skirt plays hide-and-seek with the areas I’m most self conscious about, and makes this body-con dress more wearable for those of us without model bodies. And the color just screams summer, right?
This dress is so hot, I’m building an entire girls’ night around it.
If you’re as enamored with this dress as I am, act quick…it’s going fast. But be sure to check out Susana Monaco’s other dresses Shopbop.com – she’s no one hit wonder.
PS – Gilt actually has a sale of Susana Monaco going on today. So check that out for more options.
It’s Friends & Family time at Kiehl’s, so if you a fan of their amazing skincare, bath & body and hair products like I am, now is the time to stock up. If you’re never tried Kiehl’s…gurl, this is the perfect time to get acquainted.
Get 20% off all of your purchases at a Kiehl’s freestanding store or on Kiehls.com between Thursday, 6/13/13 – Monday, 6/17/13. Click the image above, print out the invitation, and take it to your local Kiehl’s freestanding store. Kiehls.com customers will also enjoy complimentary ground shipping on orders of $35 or more by simply entering the code FAMILY upon checkout.
If you’re looking for suggestions for your shopping list, you can’t go wrong with their Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado, Rosa Arctica Youth Regenerating Cream, Midnight Recovery Concentrate and Superbly Restorative Argan Body Lotion (it smells divine and hydrates as all get-out).
At Christmastime, I agonized over what to get my son’s daycare teachers. There are 12 of them – and even though he has his two main teachers, they all have interaction with him and take excellent care of him. So I needed to buy 12 gifts to show my appreciation, without breaking the bank. $10 each seemed doable, except that most gifts under $10 are utter crap and you’d rather give nothing at all than give someone a $10 junk present.
After almost settling on an uninspired gift (it was so blah, I can’t even remember what it was), Bath & Body Works had a sale on its 3-Wick Candles: 2 for $22. The 3 Wick Candles are a good size (14.5 oz) and usually $20 each, so this was a steal. I snatched up 12 candles in holiday scents for $132—and saved $108! It’s true that I went over my $10 per gift limit (only by $1), but it was okay because I also scored free shipping—and the candles conveniently showed up on my doorstep in mint condition. So it all evened out. But most important, the teachers LOVED their candles and raved for months about how wonderful they smell and how long they last.
So why am I running my mouth and telling you this old story? Well, Bath & Body Works is having the same sale now and I wanted to share the great news.
Mother’s Day is coming up. It’s also prime time for baby and bridal showers right about now. Better yet, why not treat yourself? You deserve it. There are a lot of new spring/summer scents that sound amazing—like Gelato, Lemon Mint Leaf, Garden Bouquet, Peach Bellini, Lakeside, Caribbean Escape and Sicilian Orange—to name a few.
Get free shipping with any purchase of $50 or more. Enter promo code BURN50—but, hurry, because that deal is only good today. The 2 for $22, 3-Wick Candles deal ends on April 21, 2013. No coupon needed for that.
How adorbs is this Corioliss White Microphone Paddle Brush? It normally costs $25, but Rue La La has it on sale (in white and black) now for $15.50.
- This brush has a perfect body shape for detangling and straightening out long hair types
- The cushioned soft ball tip quills gently massage the scalp whilst brushing and the soft fluted handle molds to the hand
- Anti-static rubber cushioned pad prevents fly-away hair
- Unique, detachable flexible section pin allows easy sections with one hand
Rue La La membership is free…click here for an invite, courtesy of Spoiled Pretty.
Isn’t this just the most adorbs way to show some state pride? Yeah, I think so too.
I’ve seen these types of necklaces before, but they never seem to have my state (PA)…just the usual suspects like NY, CA and TX. But ideeli has a nice selection of Stella & Ruby Gold-Plated State Necklaces for just $29.99 (originally $80). You’re in luck if you’re from California, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Jersey, Pennsylvania or Texas.
Go get you one.
