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

Naturalizer Boots: Fashion-Forward Footwear That Fit!

Naturalizer boots Naturalizer Boots: Fashion Forward Footwear That Fit!If you’re in the market for some new boots, I highly suggest you check out Naturalizer. Yes, Naturalizer.

I know that the brand name evokes old lady, orthapedic-looking shoes, but Naturalizer’s shoe and boots styles are anything but. The designs are classic (with a nod to current trends), versatile and super comfy.

 Naturalizer Boots: Fashion Forward Footwear That Fit!

My beloved Naturalizer Arness Boots

Last winter, I bought a pair of black riding boots and I’ve worn them at least 3 or 4 times a week through the spring. Now that it’s getting colder, they again have become my go-to footwear for fall. They look chic paired with a dress or skirt, and also with skinny jeans or leggings tucked in.

And for those of you with “athletic” calves or who wear a narrow or wide width shoe, you’re in luck because Naturalizer offers all of these options. Personally, I have wide feet and need a wide shaft boot – and I can tell you that it’s damn near impossible to find a cute boot that fits. But Naturalizer sells several.

I’m so happy with my black riding boots that I’m going to buy a brown pair…and my decision comes at the perfect time because they’re having a sale! Now through November 25, 2012, take 20% off your order at Naturalizer.com using promo code UWINT32A.

Naturalizer Juletta Boot Naturalizer Boots: Fashion Forward Footwear That Fit!

The “Juletta” boot (above) has been marked down to a very reasonable $179.99 – but with the coupon, it’s an even better $143.99!

Update: Use coupon code UWINT29A for 20% off all boots, plus an extra 15% and free shipping!

Burt’s Bees Coconut Foot Creme Giveaway

spoiled+pretty+green+week+small Burts Bees Coconut Foot Creme GiveawayI’m cuckoo for Burt’s Bees Coconut Foot Creme. It’s the foot product I measure all others against…and nothing ever comes close to this dream cream.

This pampering natural foot treatment combines coconut oil, lanolin and vegetable glycerin to revive and rejuvenate even the driest, most neglected feet. There’s also a hint of natural rosemary and peppermint oils to refresh tired feet.

For a luxurious way to treat your tootsies, soak feet in warm water for 10-15 minutes and rub gently with a pumice stone. Massage Coconut Foot Creme onto your feet, paying close attention to heels and calloused skin. Then cover your feet with cotton socks overnight to soothe and seal in moisture.

When Life Hands You Lemons: Be Fine Rough Spot Lemon Balm

Posted on by daneen in Don't Waste Your Money, Dry Skin, Feet | Leave a comment

be+fine+rough+spot+lemon+balm When Life Hands You Lemons: Be Fine Rough Spot Lemon BalmIt’s human nature to be seduced by pretty packaging. And we gullible homo sapiens expect that inside said exterior, we’ll find something equally fabulous. Unfortunately, this misguided tendency is the reason why beauty buffs, like myself, end up knee deep in products we were so excited to buy, open and use that don’t live up to our expectations.

Such is the case of Be Fine’s Rough Spot Lemon Balm. The packaging looks like a lemon; it’s so realistic-looking that if I left it lying around, Mr. Spoiled Pretty might take it upon himself to put it in the refrigerator. Unfortunately, the salve hidden inside is such a nothing-to-write-home-about product, it makes total sense that they worked so hard fashioning the container.

First, I assumed that the balm would actually smell fresh and citrusy…and it does, if you sniff really, really hard. Secondly, you literally have to dig the balm out with your fingernail to get any product in your hands. Finally, the balm is so greasy, it’s a hazard to your clothing, couch and carpet.

burts+bees+coconut+foot+creme When Life Hands You Lemons: Be Fine Rough Spot Lemon BalmSo what’s a beauty addict to do when life hands her lemons? Yep…make lemonade. So I dug into the salve with my nail and spread that grease balm all over my heels, arches and toes. Then I covered my tootsies with some old gym socks and let it marinate for a bit. Twenty minutes later, I did a preliminary check and was shocked to find that my feet had completely absorbed all of the product – but they didn’t feel softer or more moisturized…not at all.

Rough Spot Lemon Balm was disappointing – on so many levels – that I cannot recommend this product, despite the package’s high kitsch factor. One thing the product did accomplish, though, was to remind me about the awesomeness of Burt’s Bees Coconut Foot Crème.

Slather it on, slide on some socks and hit the hay. In the morning, you’ll swear the magic foot fairy made a late-night house call.
