Remember that delish Abaco handbag I scored on Ideeli.com last summer? Well, now you can stop drinking the haterade and get one yourself – because Ideeli is having another Abaco handbag sale!!!
Abaco offers roomy handbags without the fuss. Following a true “joie de vivre” philosophy, this Parisian label unites vintage charm with modern practicality, creating a new twist on classic feminine style. Backed by extensive experience as a makeup artist, designer Raquel Achache crafts bags from supple leathers in indefinite colors (such as blue-gray). Because these subtler shades are also harder to find, she works directly with her factories to develop these custom colors, giving Abaco Laguna bags a distinct, sophisticated look. Pair this color palette with perfectly slouched silhouettes and the results manage to feel both new and familiar.
Abaco handbags aren’t easy to come by – and you’ll never find them at the ridiculously affordable prices offered by Ideeli. I’m thinking of buying another one… though I’ve amassed such a collection of purses, Mr. Spoiled Pretty might blow a gasket. Maybe we’ll keep it a secret?

My sister’s BFF turned me onto Victoria’s Secret Flawless Glow Face Bronzer, from the Bare Bronze Collection. This velvety duo-bronzer has two finishes. Use the satin matte shade to contour, the pearly powder to highlight; and blend the two shades together for a shimmering bronze glow.
The shimmery half of the duo leaves you looking sunkissed, rather than muddy – a la Lindsay “Dirty Face” Lohan.
Here’s another tip passed along from Lauren’s friend: apply the shimmery shade, in a stripe, down the middle of the nose – then continue the line from the bottom of the nose to the cupid’s bow. And ta-da – instant hotness.
Flawless Glow Face Bronzer is available in three shades: light (glow 1), light/medium (glow 2), and medium (glow 3). I’ve got a Halle Berry-esque complexion and I wear the light/medium, just to give you an idea.
On the website, Flawless Glow Face Bronzer will set you back $17.50. But my sister and I snagged ours in the Victoria’s Secret store, where they’re selling these babies for $4.37! There’s also this adorable kabuki brush (super soft brown bristles with hot pink tips) that’s on sale for $4.87.
I finally cashed in the gift card I got last September at Fashion Week – and bought the Flawless Glow Face Bronzer and the Very Sexy Demi Push-Up Bra with Gel-Curve (very sexy, indeed).

You could spend $42 for a .28 oz tube of Freeze 24-7 PlumpLips gloss here. Or you could spend $9.99 at your local Marshalls. Yesterday, while shopping the Willow Grove, PA Marshalls with Mama Spoiled Pretty, I spotted a basket full of PlumpLips near register #1.
About a year ago when I reviewed PlumpLips, my sister also fell in love with the lip plumper; but $42 was a little too rich for a college student’s budget. So, being the best big sis a girl could ever wish for, I tossed a tube into my mom’s cart and told her that Lauren would be forever grateful.
Today, Lauren called me to gush about her new gloss…marveling that A) I remembered how hard she tried to find it, on the cheap, circa 2007…and B) that I even recalled which shade she had been searching for (FirstFrost).

Season’s greetings from Spokane, WA!
I’m in the Pacific Northwest visiting with the in-laws. I’d like to give a shout out to Steve, Laura, Matt, Maddy and baby Clara for being so warm and hospitable, and for making my first Christmas away from home so lovely.
So today, Mr. Spoiled Pretty and I braved the snow and ventured to River Park Square , a shopping center in the heart of downtown Spokane. Graham left me unattended in Nordstrom for about 10 minutes, then called me on my cell to say that he was finished his Christmas shopping. How do men do that? I guess we’ll find out tomorrow.
Realizing that he’d have to humor me before I would willingly leave the mall, Graham accompanied me to Banana Republic and a few other shops – including Chatters, a salon and beauty retail store. I was drawn to the unfamiliar store by a very recognizable pink and white dispay…
It’s that time of year when we all get so busy with the holidays that we forget to appreciate the little things that make us smile. Little things like being with family and friends, all the good food, and the laughter and love that comes along with the holidays. It’s easy to lose sight of these things during this very hurried time of year. At Jaqua, they believe it is okay to slow down, stop and smell the roses, take some time to appreciate their beauty, remind ourselves how lucky we are and let the people in our lives know how much we appreciate them.
They also want to let you know how much they appreciate you, so in honor of the little things in life, they’re giving you 25% off their Hand Crèmes. These deliciously fragranced hand crèmes are just the right size to take anywhere. They’re small enough to carry in your purse, gym bag, or glove box – and at just 2 oz. they can even get through airport security! They make great stocking stuffers…and at 25% off, you can get them for all those family members and friends you appreciate so much (and snag one for yourself).
