Get Catty With Wildfox Catfarer Sunglasses


I've been searching for some cat eye sunnies for forever. On a whim, I bought these Wildfox Catfarer Sunglasses from Shopbop - hoping that they wouldn't look too cartoonish. Even though I was afraid they'd be too large, I'm digging the oversized frames. They make a statement without overwhelming my face. And the cat eye shape is subtle, so it's not CONTINUE READING

Peep My Polish: Revlon Top Speed Nail Enamel in Superstitious


Now that I have two kids - and the youngest being 6 weeks old - I needed to get better acquainted with quick-dry nail polish options. I hardly have time to do anything, let alone a DIY - so I needed to find some lacquers that fit my new lifestyle. Yesterday, while going my grocery shopping, I picked up Revlon CONTINUE READING

Tatcha, I'm So Glad I Gotcha


I'm home on maternity leave, so I spend an inordinate amount of time nursing my daughter, burping her and changing her diapers - all the while, watching hours of QVC. I don't know what it is, but I am mesmerized by QVC demonstrations. If I'm channel surfing and I happen to land on QVC, it's damn near impossible for CONTINUE READING

Bath & Body Works Cooling Gel Lotion Needs A New Name

Mr. Spoiled Pretty Is A Chanel Convert

Posted on by daneen in Fragrance, Male Grooming, Spoiled Pretty family | Leave a comment

chanel+allure+homme+edition+blanche Mr. Spoiled Pretty Is A Chanel ConvertMr. Spoiled Pretty is a trip…

A few days ago, I gifted him with two new men’s products Chanel sent me to review, Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche Eau de Toilette and Anti-Shine Moisturizing After Shave. Being the macho-man minimalist that he is, Graham gladly accepted the aftershave but handed back the fragrance.

“I already have enough colognes, so maybe you should give this away on your blog,” he said. Now, for the record, Graham only has two (maybe three) other colognes – and the fact that he would deny himself of free Chanel blew my product-loving mind.

But once Graham got a whiff of the aftershave – with its notes of lemon, bergamot, cedar, sandalwood, tonka bean, white musk, vetiver, ginger, amber, vanilla, white and pink pepper – my unassuming hubby changed his tune. “Mmmmm, this smells awesome,” he said. “Maybe I should hold on to the cologne.”

Yesterday morning, when Graham emerged from the bathroom, he smelled fantastic – and I told him as much. “I used that new Chanel stuff you gave me, and I really like it,” he said – leaning in so that I could better appreciate his fresh scent. When I pressed him for a more comprehensive review so that I could write this very post, he replied, “What I like most about it is that it makes me smell wealthy.”

Well, there you have it, ladies. Mr. Spoiled Pretty, a pretty difficult man to please, is a Chanel convert. Maybe I am rubbing off on him after all.

Two Scents I Can’t Wait to Spritz This Spring

Posted on by daneen in Bath and Body, Fragrance, Perfume | Leave a comment

vera+wang+rock+princess Two Scents I Can’t Wait to Spritz This Spring

Vera Wang Rock Princess

I’ve always fancied myself a princess (if only in the providence of Spoiled Pretty), so it should come as no surprise that Vera Wang’s Princess and Flower Princess reign supreme on my vanity. Next month, Vera adds to the heir to the throne.

She’d trade her tiara in for a new guitar, attend a concert instead of the prom—she is Rock Princess, the dynamic new fragrance by Vera Wang. It’s all about the music, the fashion, and the spirit with this edgy yet seductively sweet essence.

Each verse is equally captivating in the dark, fruity scent that channels sultry rock-star attitude. It takes the stage with an exhilarating intro of succulent white peach, bittersweet red raspberry, and an illuminating flash of vibrant bergamot. The chorus reveals itself in lovely layers of ultra-feminine florals. Hypnotic heliotrope, vintage-inspired rose, night-blooming jasmine, delicate lily, and an unexpected riff of sharp, spicy accents. The melody bridges to a finale, cloaking the essence in the warm, sensual glow of plush cashmere woods, smoldering musk, elegant iris, and creamy coconut. You will not forget her.

The Rock Princess bottle is as rebellious and dark as the downtown clubs where she plays. A smoky glass heart steals the show with sharp faceted edges and cool surfaces. The front of the bottle is covered with heavy metal in a pattern inspired by a Vera Wang fabric design. The crown rocks at the top, in a gunmetal finish, covered with rhinestone studs. Set beneath the crown is a matching ring—the perfect jewelry for playing a solo on the bass or hammering away on the drums.

In April 2009, Vera Wang Rock Princess will be available in 1 oz and 3.4 oz Eau de Parfum – sold for $45 and $72, respectively. A 5 oz Satiny Body Lotion ($32) rounds out the collection.

Prada Infusion de Fleur d’Oranger

I am also dying to get my hands (and pulse points) all over Prada’s newest offering. At the CEW Product Demonstration last month, I stopped by the Prada Infusion d’Iris table to rave about the fragrance. I told the rep how I’ve been hooked since purchasing for Mama Spoiled Pretty in December 2007…and how it has dethroned Hanae Mori Butterfly as my signature scent. After I finished testifying, the rep told me to be on the lookout for an orange incarnation, just in time for spring.

I’ve done a little research on this insider tip, and here’s what I found. Prada will introduce Infusion de Fleur d’Oranger, a new limited edition fragrance, later this month. The perfume is the first in a yearly series of limited edition scents, called the “Ephemeral Infusion Collection.”

Infusion de Fleur d’Oranger was developed by perfumer Daniela Andrier, and key notes include orange blossom, tuberose and jasmine.

The eau de parfum will be available in three sizes: 1.7 oz ($74), 3.4 oz ($100), and 6.75 oz ($135). The line also includes a 8.5 oz Hydrating Body Lotion ($52) and 33.8 oz Perfumed Bath and Shower Gel ($50).

Benefit fragrance was hot at the Oscars last night with some scent-sational buzz from actress Evan Rachel Wood, star of the Oscar-nominated film The Wrestler. Her scent was so alluring, E! host Ryan Seacrest stopped her on the red carpet to ask her what fragrance she was wearing. Evan announced, “I’m wearing a Benefit perfume,” during the E! Entertainment Live from the Red Carpet broadcast.
