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

Beauty Bloggerati Spotlight Sponsored Post: AXE Twist Giveaway

Girls get bored easily. That goes without saying. So gift your man with AXE Twist, a fresh fragrance that changes over time to keep you interested.

Twist+Bodyspray+and+Logo Sponsored Post: AXE Twist Giveaway

Developed by world-renowned fragrance experts (including the nose behind Obsession, Eternity, Marc Jacobs Daisy, and Covet for Sarah Jessica Parker), Twist starts with fresh hints of citrus and lime to make a good first impression, and then adds more depth with earthy notes of cedar and sandalwood to keep guys smelling good. When reviewing the Twist Bodyspray, I enjoyed how the fragrance started off crisp and clean – then over the next hour, it morphed into a very manly scent.

The AXE Twist collection includes a Deodorant Bodyspray (4 oz, $4.99), Deodorant Stick (3 oz, $4.99), Antiperspirant Stick (2.7, $4.99) and Shower Gel (12 oz, $3.99).

This week, Spoiled Pretty is partnering with Axe to give readers an opportunity to experience Twist, firsthand. Fifteen winners – yes, you heard me right – will win the Bodyspray, Deodorant and Antiperspirant.

Gillette Venus Spa Breeze Giveaway!

gillette+venus+spa+breeze+razor Gillette Venus Spa Breeze Giveaway!

When I meet a beauty product that blows my mind, there are – typically – two things that come to mind. First, I ask myself, “Self, how have you lived your life thus far without this product in your possession?” Secondly, I strategize, “How can I hook up my Spoiled Pretty peeps?”

This was exactly my thought process when I tried Venus Spa Breeze for the very first time, last week.

venus+spa+breeze Gillette Venus Spa Breeze Giveaway!This new Venus incarnation has built-in shave gel bars infused with the clean, fresh scent of white tea to provide a light lather as you shave, eliminating the need for a separate shave cream. I have to admit that, as a fan of the Schick Intuition razor, I wasn’t immediately impressed when I saw Venus Spa Breeze’s tiny little ‘shave gel bars.’ My pregnancy hormones have sent my hair follicles into overdrive, and I was very skeptical that there was enough gel to handle one leg – let alone all of my hairy situations.

But the Venus Spa Breeze pleasantly surprised me. First of all, I’m going to go on record as saying that my armpits have never been so bald, smooth and moisturized, post-shave, than after using the Venus Spa Breeze. And the razor delivered such a close shave that I didn’t have any stubble the next day! Lastly, the shave gel bars that I originally dismissed just kept going…and going…and going. They lasted through many a shave session and the triple blades stayed razor sharp.

I’m so impressed with Gillette that I’m partnering with them for a giveaway! Ten lucky winners will receive the Venus Spa Breeze, which includes 1 Venus Spa Breeze Razor, 2 refill cartridges, and 1 Shaving Compact. With warmer weather almost upon us, think how much this razor will come in handy. No more fussing with shaving cream…no more rust rings on the side of your tub…and no more buying those stupid mini cans of shave gel for vacations. Venus Spa Breeze is all you need.

To enter the giveaway, leave a message in the comments section; make sure to leave your email or another way for me to get in touch, just in case you get lucky. Contest is open to U.S. residents only. The giveaway ends at noon (EST) on Monday, March 22, 2010. Good luck!
