As a beauty blogger who is slightly obsessed with the Kardashian sisters, I receive a ton of emails – asking about Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian’s style, favorite beauty products and makeup application secrets. It’s one of the reasons why I enlisted Kim’s makeup artist, Mario Dedivanovic, to contribute a weekly column to Spoiled Pretty – Makeup Mondays With Mario.
But the most popular question I receive is where people can purchase an acrylic makeup organizer like the one featured on Keeping Up With The Kardashians. (more…)
Congrats to the winner of the Bed Head Foxy Curls Styling Iron Giveaway – C and C girl.
She has won the Bed Head Foxy Curls 1-1/4 Inch Tourmaline Ceramic Conical Styling Iron, which creates softer, shinier, natural looking curls and waves – without frizz. The iron heats up in just 30 seconds, and the temperature dial has multiple heat settings that can be adjusted to suit your hair texture. The cool tip lets you get a grip, without fear of burning your fingers. And forgetful gals will appreciate the iron’s automatic shutoff feature – which powers down after an hour.
Many thanks to Bed Head for sponoring this contest. And stay tuned for Spoiled Pretty’s next giveaway, which will be revealed very soon!
Bed Head Foxy Curls 1-1/4 Inch Tourmaline Ceramic Conical Styling Iron creates softer, shinier, natural looking curls and waves – without frizz.

The cool tip lets you get a grip, without fear of burning your fingers. And forgetful gals will appreciate the iron’s automatic shutoff feature – which powers down after an hour.
To catch some Gisele-esque waves, follow these instructions:
For a looser curl at the ends, take a 2-inch section of hair and put the end under the kink-free mini clamp. Hold the iron at a vertical angle and rotate it, wrapping the hair tightly around the barrel. Hold the iron in this position for a few seconds, depending on your hair type. Release the clamp and pull the iron out from the center of the curl. For a looser curl at the roots, place hair closest to the roots under the mini clamp and wrap hair down the barrel, leaving the ends out. Repeat this process until your desired look is achieved.
Natural curls are never uniform in size or direction – so to create “maybe she’s born with it” ringlets, it’s best to alternate curling methods. Once you’ve finished your entire head, let the curls cool and then gently shake them or loosen them by finger combing.
This week, Spoiled Pretty is partnering with Bed Head and giving a Foxy Curls Styling Iron away to one lucky reader. To enter, leave a comment below.

Congrats to the winner of the ghd Iconic Eras of Style Giveaway – Jessica Lucente!
Jessica will receive the Boho Chic set – which includes the ghd Gold Professional 1″ styler, two sectioning clips and a step-by-step booklet showing you how to recreate iconic styles at home – packed in a heat-resistant, brown fringed clutch!
I own the same set and I’m obsessed. It’s like the styling iron of my dreams, made real. I love that it heats up in mere seconds, and beeps to let me know it’s time to do the do. And the contoured plates allow me to create both straight and curved styles. It also shuts off after 30 minutes of inactivity, which is a big plus for me because I’m constantly paranoid that I’ve left my flat iron plugged in and I’m going to burn down the house. But my favorite feature is the plate guard – it slips on like a cap so you can just throw your hot-as-hell styling iron into your bag (or wherever) without fear that it’ll singe up all of your stuff. Love that!
Jessica is going to love it too. Congrats, girl!
Many thanks to ghd for sponsoring this giveaway and to everyone who entered. Check back tomorrow for Spoiled Pretty’s next giveaway!
