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

 Tracy Reese for Sally Hansen Giveaway!!!
You didn’t think that this week would end without a giveaway, did you? Tsk, tsk…you should know better than that. My main thrill in life is a giveaway. It gives me a sense of control in a world full of chaos.

So this week, Spoiled Pretty has joined forces with Sally Hansen for a fashion-forward, trend-setting giveaway. Two winners will receive Tracy Reese for Sally Hansen Fall 2008 Color Collection, an anthology of 10 stylish shades that compliment Reese’s nature-inspired Fall 2008 collection.

 Tracy Reese for Sally Hansen Giveaway!!!According to Tracy Reese, customers “aren’t afraid to be noticed.” I think the same can be said of the women who wear this nail polish collection, which marks the fifth collaboration between the designer and Sally Hansen. The colors are luxurious and rich, yet understated and refined.

Shades include: Raven’s Wing* (black with silver glitter), Moonstone (silver pearl metallic), Quartz Chameleon (pinky-nude with shimmer), Divinity* (pale toffee with shimmer), The Good Earth* (deep dark chocolate with shimmer), Cruel Heart (scarlet with shimmer), Alchemy* (dark grape with shimmer), Torrid Bloom* (deep fuchsia crème), Night Lily (plummy crème) and Stormy Blue (smoky silver/blue metallic).

The Tracy Reese for Sally Hansen Salon Nail Lacquer Fall 2008 Collection (only $6 each!) is available at drugstores and mass market retailers nationwide. Though I know you’re tempted to run out right now and buy up every single shade, why not try your luck first and enter the giveaway?

 Tracy Reese for Sally Hansen Giveaway!!!To enter, send an email to spoiledprettycontests@gmail.com. Be sure to include your full name and mailing address. The subject line should read “Sally Hansen/Tracy Reese Giveaway.” The contest ends at midnight (EST) on Thursday, November 27th. Two winners will be chosen at random from among the entrants. On Friday, November 28th, I’ll announce the winners’ names. Please, only one entry per person; duplicate entries will not increase your chances of winning. Contest is open to U.S. and Canadian residents only.

Good luck!

Bey, You’re Just Too Funky For Me…

Posted on by daneen in Celebrities, Fashion | 2 Comments

sasha+fierce1 Bey, Youre Just Too Funky For Me...
It seems that Beyonce – or rather her alter ego, Sasha Fierce – has been channeling Thierry Mugler lately. For the last few weeks – in photo op after photo op – she’s been seen wearing a vaguely familiar, futuristic-looking robotic glove. I couldn’t quite place it…until I came across new promos for her upcoming album – one of which has her sporting the very famous Thierry Mugler Motorcycle Corset from 1992.

sasha+fierce2 Bey, Youre Just Too Funky For Me...Both the glove and the corset were featured in George Michael’s Too Funky video, which was directed by Thierry Mugler. I wonder if, in her mission to one-up Rihanna, Beyonce will resurrect any other crazy fashions from that video.

Not beauty related, I realize…but it gives me a reason to share Too Funky with all of you. Enjoy!

Until Now, Ponytails and Knit Hats Didn’t Mix

Posted on by daneen in Fashion, Hair | 6 Comments

girl32 Until Now, Ponytails and Knit Hats Didnt Mix

I typically wear my hair in a ponytail at least five days a week. And during the cold Philadelphia winters, when I’m forced to wear a hat, I end up looking ridiculous with my ponytail or bun stuffed into my knit caps.

Girl 32 understands. Their pony-friendly hats marry fashion with function!

It’s a simple concept, really. A fashionable wool winter hat you can wear two ways – with your hair up, or down. Features Swarovski crystal buttons in the back, and comes in a variety of delicious colors. Smart girl. Smart hat.

how to1 Until Now, Ponytails and Knit Hats Didnt Mix
To wear: 1) Unbutton one button at the height of your ponytail. 2) Slip hat on, and pull ponytail through. 3) Voila! Now get out there and turn some heads.

The geniuses at Girl 32 also created the Smart Glove, featuring hooded fingertips on the thumb and forefinger…so you can dial your phone or apply lipstick, all without having to take off the entire cute glove you’re wearing. And be sure to also check out their Smart Scarf, with a hidden zipper pocket to stash your lipgloss, keys, bus pass or iPod.

It’s In The Bag: Trina Turk Collabo With Clinique

trina+turk Its In The Bag: Trina Turk Collabo With Clinique
I have to admit that I’m not easily wooed by a gift with purchase. Maybe it’s because most of them are essentially throwaway products, in a multitude of shiteous shades. Or perhaps it’s because I’m an ungrateful heifer who, by virtue of this blog, is spoiled by too much beauty swag.

So when I tell you to mark your calendar for a gift with purchase, you know it’s time to sit up and pay attention.

Clinique has partnered with fashion designer Trina Turk and Nordstrom for the brand’s first-ever designer makeup bag. From November 5-22 (or while supplies last), you can get your paws on Turk’s adorable animal print cosmetic case, filled with Clinique goodies hand-picked by the designer.

“The silver and white mini-tigress print with a bright yellow lining works beautifully with Clinique’s packaging and reflects our own silver and white brand identity,” says Turk.

The gift with purchase includes:

* Zero Gravity Repairwear Lift
* Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser
* Colour Compact with Colour Surge Eye Shadow Duo in Beach Plum/Soft-Pressed Powder Blusher in New Clover
* Long Last Glosswear SPF 15 in Bamboo Pink
* Lash Doubling Mascara in Black
* Long Last Lipstick in Twilight Nude
* Lipstick case with Mirror

There are no throwaways here. In fact, I would bet cash money that many of these products become your beauty must-haves. And, speaking of money, the Trina Turk gift with purchase is free with your Clinique purchase of $25 or more.

The partnership between Clinique and Trina Turk will last for three seasons, so keep your eyes peeled in the months ahead.

In tonight’s eppy of The Rachel Zoe Project, It’s Oscar time…and Rachel’s right hand, Taylor, gives Rach an ultimatum. She wants her boss to choose between her and Rachel’s other assistant. “It’s Brad or I. Brad or I,” she says.
