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

QVC All Access Beauty Giveaway!

Posted on by daneen in Accolades and Honors, Contest, Featured, Giveaway | 131 Comments

When I was a young girl, one of my favorite pastimes was sitting in front of my mom’s mirrored closet doors and “playing QVC.” I would pretend to be Kathy Levine, meticulously describing each necklace, bracelet and pair of earrings in my mother’s jewelry box – using terms like Black Hills Gold, Diamonique and lobster claw clasp.

Twenty-some odd years later, I’m still a fan of QVC. My favorite show is Friday Night Beauty with Lisa Robertson – and if I didn’t have such excellent self-control, that program might bankrupt me. When I watch FNB, I always get the urge to call in and share my thoughts on the products I’ve tried. But I get nervous and I never go through with it.

QVC All Access Beauty Bloggers QVC All Access Beauty Giveaway!So when QVC recently approached me about being one of their featured bloggers for the All Access Beauty event (it kicks off this Friday, April 13 at 11:00 PM EST and will continue on all day Saturday, April 14), I jumped at the opportunity.  As an All Access Beauty Blogger, I’m sharing my top beauty picks on QVC.com. And since I’m local, I’ll be traveling to their West Chester, PA studios on Saturday to go backstage and meet beauty rock stars like Kate Somerville, Mally and Josie Maran. CONTINUE READING

Versace Yellow Diamond Giveaway

versace yellow diamond 1024x665 Versace Yellow Diamond GiveawayI have a very discriminating nose, which is why a lot of fragrance reviews don’t see the light of day on the pages of Spoiled Pretty. I have a few favorites (Hanae Mori Butterfly, Prada Infusion d’Iris, Kai, Philosophy Amazing Grace, L’Instant de Guerlain, Carol’s Daughter Sugar-Dipped Vanilla) – but most perfumes don’t impress me enough to warrant a review.

So the fact that I’m posting about Yellow Diamond should tell you that I’m definitely impressed with Versace’s latest olfactory offering. CONTINUE READING

bethenny frankel Skinnygirl Face and Body Gift Set Giveaway!Bethenny Frankel is my CBFFIMH (Celebrity Best Friend Forever in My Head) – along with Kathy Griffin and Wendy Williams.

Bethenny and I were introduced back in March of 2008 when The Real Housewives of New York premiered. She quickly won me over with her unpretentious personality and quick wit, and we’ve been BFF’s (again, in my head) ever since. Bethenny and I even had our children around the same time (Bethenny gave birth to Bryn in May of 2010 and Westley arrived in August of that year). I remember even more of a kinship with Bethenny as I watched her juggle marriage and motherhood, on the first season of Bethenny Getting Married?

Now I learn that me and my gal pal have even more in common. The reality-star-turned-entrepreneur has ventured into beauty, launching her Skinnygirl Face and Body collection. CONTINUE READING
