A few weeks ago Bite Beauty sent over two of their new Lush Lip Tints for me to try. They have a bunch of colors that look cute – I got cherry and black currant and I really like both. They are lightly scented, and go on really smooth. They’re hydrating but not super slick or sticky like some glosses can be. The formula also has some staying power, which was nice. And the shades are flattering and not too bright. CONTINUE READING
A few weeks ago, I posted a pic of this Max & Cleo dress I was planning to wear to a wedding and solicited your advice for complementary shoes. The resounding consensus was that I should jazz it up with a pair of colorful kicks. But while I loved many of your shoe recommendations, my wide, flat feet started to hurt just looking at those stilettos. So I decided to use your suggestions as style inspiration and search for similar heels in a less intimidating height. Unfortunately, 99.9% of the cute heels out there are too narrow for my Flintstone feet, not to mention ridiculously sky high. Seriously, how women can stand in these things, let alone stroll? Inquiring minds want to know.
I went to Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack, TJ Maxx, Marshalls, DSW, Lord & Taylor and Bloomingdale’s – and came up with nada. I was this close to switching the dress – all because I couldn’t find appropriate shoes – until I happened upon the Sofft Ramona II Pump. CONTINUE READING
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.
