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

Pretty Dresses For Petites: Maggy London

Posted on by daneen in Fashion, Spoiled Pretty family | Leave a comment

maggy+london+dress Pretty Dresses For Petites: Maggy LondonIf you’re petite like me, you know the pain of returning from a day-long shopping excursion empty-handed because everything in your size is hideous. I can’t, for the life of me, understand why designers seem to think we shorties ought to dress like we’re six or sixty. Elastic-waisted jeans and tops fashioned out of doilies? No thank you.

Which is why I’m currently obsessed with Maggy London. I’m going through a phase where all I want to do is wear dresses, and Maggy London has some of the prettiest, petite-friendly styles around.

At Nordstrom two weeks ago, I tried on four Maggy London dresses and they all fit perfectly. I only had room in my budget for one, so I decided on this blue floral wrap dress because Mr. Spoiled Pretty said I looked “gorgeous” in it. Plus, it was on sale. Score!

So if any of my vertically challenged sisters are in the market for fashion-forward frocks made perfectly for your proportions, I highly suggest that you try Maggy London on for size.

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Khloe Kardashian

Posted on by daneen in Celebrities, Fashion, Interview, Nails | Leave a comment

khloe kardashian maxim 100 10 Things You Didn’t Know About Khloe KardashianHave you seen my beauty Q&A with Khloe Kardashian? It’s must-see TV, though my opinion might be a bit biased. The exclusive interview with Khloe Kardashian and her makeup artist, Mario Dedivanovic, features their must-have products, makeup techniques and beauty secrets!

If you’ve already seen the interview and are fiending for more Dash dish, consider this a companion piece…

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Khloe Kardashian

1) She believes that being a prankster helps her hone her acting skills.

2) The Keeping Up With The Kardashians episode that makes her cringe is when she participated in an acting class.

3) Khloe’s fashion icons are Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, Jackie O, Audrey Hepburn, Victoria Bekham and Rihanna. “I love that one day she’s a schoolgirl and the next day she’s a dominatrix,” Khloe says of Rihanna. “I can appreciate that because I have multiple personalities
too.”

4) If she could only wear one designer for the rest of her life, it would be Alexander Wang.

5) “When it comes to my nails, I just always do crazy. I recently went to Africa and all of the kids were totally fascinated by my nails, which were really long with silver glitter tips and rhinestones on my ring fingers in the shape of a K.”

6) Khloe hardly ever wears false lashes because her natural lashes are forever long. “She just doesn’t need them,” Mario told me. I was up close and personal, and I can attest to the fact that Khloe won the genetic lottery when it comes to her lashes. They are ridiculously lush.

7) After seeing Khloe in certain photographs, people swear that Khloe has had her lips done – which isn’t true. It’s just that her natural lip color is the same as her skin…so when her lips are all done up, it makes them really pop.

8) Khloe is contemplating having the inside of her wrist inked with the word “Bunny,” written in her mother’s handwriting. Since she was little, Bunny has been her mom’s pet name for her – and the new tattoo would be a compliment to this one she got last year.

9) Khloe says she would never get a name tattooed on her body, with the exception of her family. “Honey, even husbands come and go,” she joked.

10) Since watching the video, my inbox has been inundated with emails asking what lipstick/gloss Khloe was wearing in the video. Here’s the recipe: First, Mario lined her lips with MAC Lip Pencil in Spice. Then he mixed Josie Maran Finger Paints and MAC Lipstick in Myth, and filled in her lips. Finally, he topped it all off with NARS Lip Gloss in Turkish Delight.

Happy Birthday, Bikini: Venus Razor Giveaway

Posted on by daneen in Contest, Fashion, Giveaway, Razor, Shave | Leave a comment

sports+illustrated+swimsuit+1960s Happy Birthday, Bikini: Venus Razor GiveawayIt’s hard to believe, but this month marks the 60th anniversary of the bikini in America. When the first bikini was launched, it caused an explosion on the fashion scene, and through the years that little piece of fabric has gone through quite an evolution in length, fabrics, colors and cuts. Today, the bikini is a defining force in summer style.

When it comes to donning a bikini, confidence is key…and, smooth skin can help. According to a recent survey, almost 75% of women said that they felt more confident after shaving. Research also shows that shaving makes women feel more feminine, polished and beautiful.

So, before slipping on that swimsuit, be sure to get your south of the border in order with Venus Embrace. The first five blade razor for women, Venus Embrace has a ribbon of moisture and hugs every curve for a close shave and dramatically smooth skin.

To help celebrate the bikini’s birthday, Spoiled Pretty is partnering with Venus for a giveaway. One lucky reader will win:

spoiled+pretty+venus+giveaway Happy Birthday, Bikini: Venus Razor Giveaway

* Venus Embrace and Embrace replacement blades
* Gillette Satin Care Lavender Kiss Shave Gel
* Olay Touch of Sun Quench Plus
* Fedora hat with changeable black ribbon around the brim
* Colorful oversized beach towel
* Mara Hoffman bikini

This giveaway’s approximate retail value is $250!

To enter the giveaway, send an email to spoiledprettycontests@gmail.com. Be sure to include your full name and mailing address. The subject line should read “Bikini Birthday Giveaway.” The contest ends at midnight (EST) on Wednesday, August 5. One winner will be chosen at random from among the entrants. On Thursday, August 6th, 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. residents.

Good luck!

rafe+keri+handbag More Ideeli Sales...Break Out Your Wallets!

Today at 10am, Ideeli.com kicks off its Rafe handbag sale. I love me a Rafe Totengco creation…my Diana hobo is TO DIE! So you know I need to add to my private collection. I have my eyes on the prize (above), this Keri tote. Keep your fingers crossed that I get it. You know how cutthroat handbag addicts get when they smell a sale…and this one is unreal (prices start at just $52)!

falls+sundress More Ideeli Sales...Break Out Your Wallets!

I’ve also been debating on whether or not I should snatch up this Falls sundress. I’m kind of wary about purchasing clothing online, considering how difficult it is for me to find pieces that fit. But it’s so super cute and has adjustable straps, so I don’t know if I’ll be able to help myself. The purchase policy says that it can be returned within 14 days for merchandise credit and qualifies for free return shipping…so I might have to throw caution to the wind. Doesn’t this dress just scream, “Take a chance on me?” Prices for this sale start at a very reasonable $45.
