Because my hair is over-processed, dry and damaged, I only wash it about once a week. Which means that when I “do” it, I better do it right – or else my hair will look jacked for the next seven days. Forget a bad hair day; it’s more like a bad hair week for me. So when I’m offered CONTINUE READING
This weekend, grab your girlfriends and go see The Best Man Holiday – which hits theaters today.
On Tuesday, I attended a screening with Mama Spoiled Pretty and her BFF, Estelle – and we had so much fun. We laughed hard and cried harder (this rom-com is also a tearjerker - so bring some tissues). In fact, I got so CONTINUE READING

As you probably know, I am a marketing professional by day, a beauty blogger by night and a mom/wife 24/7. But what you may not know is that, after graduating from college, I attended law school. Ultimately, I chose a different path - which makes me much happier. What doesn't make me happy, however, are the school loans I've CONTINUE READING

Going green shouldn’t be a fad that is forgotten when Earth Week comes to an end. So, moving forward, I intend to highlight the best natural, organic, and eco-friendly beauty products, year-round.
This week, Spoiled Pretty has teamed up with Kiss My Face for a green giveaway.
The Kiss My Face Potent & Pure Facial Care system combines the latest scientific research with beneficial botanicals, vitamins, extracts and minerals. The line can be tailored to meet the needs of all skin types, including aging and acne prone skin.
The Potent & Pure products cleanse, treat & moisturize skin, and the line’s packaging is comprised of 65% post consumer corrugate & produced in a facility that utilizes wind power and water soluble inks. Kiss My Face has eliminated paper leaflets in their Potent & Pure system. Instead of the traditional “how-to” with leaflets, Kiss My Face created video tutorials on the system with real Kiss My Face fans.
Two readers will win the entire Potent & Pure organic skincare system. Winners will be able to choose between Normal/Dry and Normal/Oily systems.
To enter, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include your full name, mailing address, and skin type (Normal/Dry or Normal/Oily). The subject line should read “Kiss My Face Giveaway.” The contest ends at midnight (EST) on Sunday, May 3rd. Two winners will be chosen at random from among the entrants. On Monday, May 4th, I’ll announce the winners’ names. Please, only one entry per person; duplicate entries will not increase your chances of winning. Contest is open to U.S. residents only.
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 you wake up, you’ll swear that the magical foot fairy made a late-night house call.
I am so nuts about the Coconut Foot Creme that I’m teaming up with Burt’s Bees – and we’re giving ten tubes away. Yay!
