Because Shaving is the Pits: DERMAdoctor Gorilla Warfare Antiperspirant Giveaway!


My hair grows like a weed. Unfortunately, the hair of which I speak is not on my head. My legs and underarms give my razor a workout. If I shave in the morning, by afternoon, I've got stubble. And forget about skipping days...unless I want to look like Sasquatch. Getting rid of the hair is not only expensive (I CONTINUE READING

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: BlowPro Perfect Shower Cap


The shower and my chemically-straightened hair are frenemies. Every seventh day when I wash my hair, they get along great in a shampoo Shangri-la. But the rest of the week, I employ a shower cap to keep the steam from undoing the silky straightness. I have been wearing shower caps since I was a child, and I’ve tried them CONTINUE READING

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

Because Shaving is the Pits: DERMAdoctor Gorilla Warfare Antiperspirant Giveaway!

dermadoctor gorilla warfare hair minimizing antiperspirant Because Shaving is the Pits: DERMAdoctor Gorilla Warfare Antiperspirant Giveaway!My hair grows like a weed. Unfortunately, the hair of which I speak is not on my head. My legs and underarms give my razor a workout. If I shave in the morning, by afternoon, I’ve got stubble. And forget about skipping days…unless I want to look like Sasquatch. Getting rid of the hair is not only expensive (I go through a lot of razors) – it’s also tedious and annoying. There are many days that I make certain clothing choices so I don’t have to go through the trouble of shaving.

So when I heard that one of my favorite skincare brands, DERMAdoctor, has a hair-minimizing antiperspirant, I emailed them with a quickness to ask for a sample I could review for Spoiled Pretty.

Here’s how DERMAdoctor describes Gorilla Warfare:

No need to go ape over jungle-like hair growth and rain forest-level wetness. Stop monkeying around with the ordinary and make peace with two decidedly indelicate concerns with a solution uniquely camouflaged as a daily antiperspirant. It contains fourteen highly evolved botanicals that help turn underarm hair into an endangered species. CONTINUE READING

links jewelry bracelet Giveaway: Links Jewelry Rose Gold Chain Bracelet!

After beauty products, handbags and jewelry are my secondary addictions. Obviously, this site is chock full of makeup reviews and you’ll also find a good amount of purse posts. But I don’t write very often about jewelry. Maybe it’s that I have such discriminating taste that I only come across a need-to-have piece once in a while. Or perhaps it’s because jewelry is such a personal thing…you find a piece you love and you want to be the only one wearing it.

Anyway, I’m writing my first jewelry post in a long time because I recently discovered some jewelry that made me swoon. And you know that when something is swoon-inducing, my natural instinct is to gab about it and spread the news far and wide.

Links Jewelry is a jewelry brand that manufactures the most gorge necklaces and bracelets – for both ladies and men. The jewelry features a patented chain and leather design that is handmade in America by American artisans. The Classic Line is finished in 14kt yellow gold, white gold, rose gold or sterling silver. The Sport Line features copper oxide, carbon microfiber and black steel treatments. Bracelet prices range from $129.00 to $559.00. Each piece is beautifully unique…like the kind that makes other women day, “OMG…that is so cute! Where did you get that?” Yeah, that kind.

But beyond creating cuteness, Links Jewelry is a socially conscious company that instills their “Look Good, Do Good, Feel Good” message in each piece they create. 10% of sales go directly towards Sean Penn’s J/P Haitian Relief Organization.  Knowing that rose gold is my metal soulmate, Links sent me some bracelets to review and they are amazeballs. Just take a look.

spoiled pretty baking cookies Vaseline Intense Rescue Lotion Comes In Handy

This past weekend, I embarked one of my favorite winter activities. I channeled my inner Betty Crocker by baking some delicious oatmeal and walnut chocolate chip cookies with my son, Westley.

Spoiled Pretty baking cookies with Westy Vaseline Intense Rescue Lotion Comes In Handy

I’ve never made cookies with him, so I wasn’t expecting to make such a mess.  But to be fair, any activity with a 2-year-old boy is going to get your hands dirty.

Anyway, between the measuring, mixing and sectioning the dough on the baking sheet, we must have washed our hands at least six or seven times.  But, afterwards, my hands were no worse for wear – because right before I rewarded my tummy with a tasty treat, I treated my hands to a generous helping of Vaseline Intensive Rescue Lotion.

Vaseline Intensive Rescue Lotion is proven to relieve dry skin after just one application, so it was the first thing I reached for after the cookies went into the oven. It also helps to heal dry skin in three days, so slathering it on regularly has imparted softness that rivals my toddler’s.

Stratys-3, a multi-layer moisturizing complex, infuses and suspends moisture across multiple layers of the skin. Simply put, Vaseline Intensive Rescue instantly boosts moisture levels by 300% and delivers 24 hours of hydration because it doesn’t just sit on top of skin. It sinks in and delivers much-needed moisture to the top, the core and deep down…without leaving a greasy residue.

Vaseline Intensive Rescue comes in three variants:
