Shopbop.com is downright dangerous. Just when you’ve convinced yourself to be a frugal fashionista, you start ogling the website’s offerings and every item becomes a need-it-right-now situation. Especially this time of year when I can’t seem to find my summer clothes (I swear there’s a troll hiding in my laundry room that eats my favorite pieces) – or I’m just over absolutely everything in my closet.
There are so many precious little babies on Shopbop that I want to adopt. (more…)
Over the past decade, I’ve amassed a ridiculous lipstick collection. Considering you’re supposed to toss lipstick after two years, I recently embarked upon the task of purging the tubes that are seriously past their shelf life. And although it pained me to part with my babies, there was an upside to my spring cleaning.
I had 24 empty or unloved tubes of MAC lipstick, so I returned them to my favorite local MAC (shout out to the counter at the Willow Grove Mall) as part of the Back to MAC Program. When you return six MAC primary packaging containers to a MAC counter or maccosmetics.com, you receive a free lipstick of your choice. (more…)
I’m a bad beauty blogger. Life got hectic and I totes forgot to post the winner of the Stephanie Johnson Travel Bag Giveaway last week. (more…)
Flowers are kind of clichéd for Mother’s Day – but when they’re this gorgeous and on sale, who cares?
Right now, HauteLook is hosting a Teleflora sale. There are six beautiful bouquets to choose from and you can pick the delivery date (May 9, 10, 11 or12). Priced at $45-125, they are really great deals because the price is discounted and the shipping is included. Another nice touch is that every Teleflora bouquet is hand-arranged inside a keepsake vase, so even after the flowers have wilted, the vase will be a lasting reminder of your thoughtful gift. (more…)
From May 4 to 13 (3-5 p.m.), hit up your local Starbucks and spoil yourself with a half-price Starbucks Frappuccino! (more…)

Today at work, I got a pretty gnarly paper cut. This wasn’t some superficial slice either. This was like a third-degree paper cut and I was getting a little woozy from the loss of blood.
Normally, I would curse my clumsiness. But this time, I was actually kind of excited because I finally had an excuse to break into the unopened box of Cynthia Rowley Band-Aids I had at home. (more…)
Since I became pregnant with my son, Westley, my body and skin dramatically changed. Much of the physical transformation was expected, but I was surprised and amazed by how pregnancy and motherhood changed me at the cellular level. And ever since then, I’ve been trying to figure my new self out.
One of my New Year’s resolutions was to see a dermatologist (I haven’t been in years). But I’ve been so busy and pressed for time that it keeps falling to the bottom of my OneNote to-do list. Luckily, fate intervened and I was asked to participate in the 2012 Eucerin Healthy Skin Challenge! (more…)
A few weeks ago, HauteLook had a Stephanie Johnson makeup bag sale – which I shared with my tweetipies on Twitter. The brand saw my tweet and emailed to thank me for my support. They even offered me the ML Traveler bag to keep or give away on Spoiled Pretty. Because I’m a benevolent beauty blogger and I already have a mountain of makeup bags (several of them are from Stephanie Johnson), I chose the latter. (more…)
