I am absolutely obsessed with Nicole by OPI’s Kourt is Red-y For A Pedi - from the Kardashian Kolors collection. I typically gravitate towards edgy shades, but I’ve been seeing a lot of celebs sporting orange-y red manicures and I couldn’t help but hop on the bandwagon. So I reached into the recesses of my nail polish collection and unearthed this gem, which OPI sent me for review last year (better late than never, right?). CONTINUE READING
The 2012 Eucerin Healthy Skin Challenge that I announced back in April is fully underway. Last week I had my first consultation with Dr. Deborah Sarnoff, a NYC dermatologist. After discussing my skin issues, she recommended the following Eucerin products for me:
- Eucerin Daily Protection Face Lotion SPF 30
- Eucerin Daily Protection Body Lotion SPF 15
- Eucerin Smoothing Repair Lotion
- Eucerin Skin Calming Dry Skin Body Wash
- Eucerin Plus Intensive Repair Extra-Enriched Foot Creme
I’ll be starting my personal skincare regimen next week, which will continue throughout the year – all while tracking and sharing my progress with you. And because a journey is so much more fun with company, I’ll also be dropping some serious skincare knowledge on you and hosting fabulous giveaways.
You can get in on the action too. Visit the “Digital Derm” tab on the Eucerin Facebook page! This tab offers you the chance to ask one of Eucerin’s Skin First Council dermatologists a question about their skincare and find a local dermatologist near your home. And if you’re on Twitter, be sure to follow @EucerinUS.
So stay tuned, my pretty peeps.
Kate Spade, why do you do this to me? I was trying to save money. This peplum pretty is gonna haunt my dreams.
The Kate Spade leopard ikat randie top is currently a wallet-busting $268. But hopefully my size will stay in stock long enough to see a sale.
For two years, I coveted this Jennifer Behr Rope Knotted Headwrap. But its $150+ price tag prevented me from making dream to reality.
Then a few months ago, I spotted this identical headband (see below) on sale at HauteLook. It’s the Muri Headband by Amrita Singh. I snatched it up – two, actually (gold and red) – and I’ve received so many compliments! I wanted to tell you all, but the sale ended before I got the chance to share the deets. CONTINUE READING
Many of you visit Spoiled Pretty for my beauty and fashion advice. But now it’s my turn to solicit style suggestions from you.
In a few weeks, I’m attending a friend’s wedding and this is the dress I’m wearing. It’s by Max & Cleo and I snatched it up for just $25 at Bloomingdale’s this past weekend (it’s originally $143). I concede that the dress doesn’t look like much on the model, but it looks great on me (and hides a multitude of sins) – hurrah! Anyways, I need shoes to complete the ensemble and I’m absolutely perplexed. Should I rock a pair of nude pumps? Or maybe inject a pop of color? I need your help!
To weigh in, leave your two cents in the comments section. Thanks in advance – and I’ll be sure to post what I ultimately pick.
Peep my polish. It’s Essie Mochacino, which is described as “a perky gray with shimmer.” It reminds me of Mama Spoiled Pretty’s favorite shade, Essie Chinchilly – except warmer and sparkly. I bought it at CVS during a recent beauty haul (more on that later). I think I’ve found a new fave. What do you think?
