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

Bath & Body Works Cooling Gel Lotion Needs A New Name


A few weeks ago, I paid a visit to my local Bath & Body Works store. I was on the hunt for a tropical-smelling body wash that wouldn't break the bank, and B&BW seemed like a good place to search. When I entered the store, I was greeted my a really nice saleswoman who asked me what I was CONTINUE READING

Totally Tubular: Light Brights Giveaway!

Posted on by daneen in Contest, Giveaway, Lip Balm, Lip/Cheek Stain | 20 Comments

Light+Brights Totally Tubular: Light Brights Giveaway!
Good morning, pretties. I was absolutely exhausted yesterday and went to sleep without posting the latest giveaway. My bad.

So without further ado, here’s how we’re spoiling you pretty this week…

The 80’s is back in a big way, inspiring new trends in fashion and beauty. But before you bust out your shoulder pads, leg warmers, and jelly bracelets – be aware that what’s en vogue (and in Vogue) right now is a modern take on 80’s retro glam.

So how do you embrace this trend without looking like a Dynasty reject? Three Custom Color Specialists has the perfect product.

Light Brights (not to be confused with Lite Brite, on of my fave childhood toys) is a collection of moisturizing, balmy stains in DayGlo fluorescent shades. When applied, they let the natural beauty of your lips shine through, while enhancing your pout with a sheer brightness. They can be layered for a fuller coverage, and can also be dabbed on the cheeks for a fresh glow.

Light Brights are available in four rad shades, named after popular NYC dancehalls from the ’80s:

area Totally Tubular: Light Brights Giveaway!
Area is a juicy and bright, yet surprisingly wearable tangerine.

danceteria Totally Tubular: Light Brights Giveaway!
Danceteria is a flirty coral for girls who just wanna have fun.

limelight Totally Tubular: Light Brights Giveaway!
Limelight is a sweet and soft, a pinky peach that pops.

palladium Totally Tubular: Light Brights Giveaway!
Palladium is a hot pink flash of color fit for any rockstar.

This week, we’re giving you the chance to win a tube of your very own. Three lucky readers will receive Light Brights in Limelight.

To enter, send an email to spoiledprettycontests@gmail.com. Be sure to include your full name. The subject line should read “Totally Tubular Giveaway.” The contest ends at midnight (EST) on Sunday, May 25th. Winners will be chosen at random from among the entrants. On Monday, May 26th, 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. & Canadian residents only.

Good luck!

The Motherload Giveaway: And The Winners Are…

cynthia+rowley The Motherload Giveaway: And The Winners Are...
Happy Mother’s Day, pretties!

stila The Motherload Giveaway: And The Winners Are...Today we’re celebrating the amazing bond between mothers and children…and we’re announcing the winners of The Motherload Giveaway.

I received so many wonderful emails, and I appreciate the stories and photos that you shared with me. I was so touched by the entries, and truly wish that I had an unlimited amount of gift sets to give away. But, alas, I only have three.

The winners will receive Stila Multi-Effect Mascara, Stila Face Contouring Trio, Flower by Cynthia Rowley Eau de Parfum Spray, and Petal by Cynthia Rowley Eau de Toilette Spray. And the lucky ladies are…

Jennifer Toy
 The Motherload Giveaway: And The Winners Are...
I was never close with my mother — that is, up until this year. Ever since I moved away to college, she has become my best friend. Although I am about 350 miles away from her most of the year, the distance is what brought us close together. She needed me as much as I needed her. As ironic as that may sound, being far away has connected us much more. She always thought of me as her baby girl, the one she needed to protect and save from the evils of the world. However, the way she protected me in high school caused me to rebel. Like many kids, I wanted to be free and independent. However, it’s harder than it seems. When I moved away to college, I felt so detached from my family, from my mother. She was there for me even when we lived so far apart. She leaves me sweet messages reminding me to study and get a good night’s sleep are only some of the things that I love about her. So this mother’s day, I’ve saved up enough money to fly home to surprise her. I can’t wait to see the look on her face!

Kimberly Hanger
Kimberly+Hanger The Motherload Giveaway: And The Winners Are...
I love being a mother because it has made me appreciate and love my own mother ten times more, and my grandmother too. I look back at my childhood and realize all the sacrifices she lovingly made for me, and all the beautiful memories I have of us together. It makes me want to be just as wonderful a mother as my own mother, who I personally think did the best job ever, and each day I strive to live up to her example with my own daughter. My mother and I are best friends, and that is the most valuable gift she has given me, along with her love. I hope when my daughter is my age, she can say the same things about me.

Meghan Murphy
Meghan+Murphy The Motherload Giveaway: And The Winners Are...
My mother, Nancy, was diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer just two months ago. For the last two months she’s has major surgeries, been in the ICU for 3 weeks and had two doses of chemotherapy. My mother has been resilient and strong from the beginning of her life. As a mother she spent her years, along with my father, caring for me and going above and beyond to dedicate her life to being my mother.

When my mother got sick, I began to review all the many things she did for me as my mother and began to file these memories away in my mind. Even though I’m 28 years old, married and own my own home now… my mother and I are still very much mother and child.

My mom’s hair has fallen out and her skin is changing due to the chemotherapy treatment. When a person struggles through a battle like cancer, the image of their self is damaged because of the havoc the treatments wreak on their bodies. When I read about your contest, I thought about how perfect this might be for her…to have some new makeup and some new looks to try out, as her beautiful face continues to change and be altered by this terrible disease.

If you don’t chose us, I might be disappointed, but I won’t stop in my quest to make sure my mother knows that I love her…and that she is my best friend. Thanks for taking the time to read about my incredible mom.

Thanks to everyone who entered. And special thanks to Avon and Stila for sponsoring this fabulous contest!

Tune in tomorrow when I’ll announce Spoiled Pretty’s latest giveaway! See you then.

mom+and+daughter The Motherload Giveaway!
This Sunday is Mother’s Day, a time to celebrate the woman who brought you into the world – and the lady who probably works your nerves more than any other. In honor of this special occasion, Spoiled Pretty is hosting another fabulous giveaway!

Three lucky ladies will win the motherload – a set of pretty prizes which includes:

multieffect+mascara The Motherload Giveaway!
Stila Multi-Effect Mascara is a true multi-tasker. It volumizes, lengthens, and curls with just the right amount of building power! Experience this ultimate mascara – and make a lash-ing impression.

face+contouring+trio The Motherload Giveaway!
Stila Face Contouring Trio is a set of three shading powders to sculpt your facial features. For a slimmed down nose, larger eyes, and sculpted cheek bones use both the light and dark matte shades with the highlighter flash.

cynthia+rowley The Motherload Giveaway!
Cynthia Rowley has teamed with Avon to create two new fashionable floral scents, aptly named Flower and Petal. The fragrances celebrate the bonds between women (especially mothers and daughters) everywhere. Flower is feminine and flirty, yet sophisticated. Every note was hand-picked by Cynthia herself, creating a bouquet of florals surrounded by warm woods and musks. The notes include: Casablanca Lily, Freesia, Cashmere Woods, Warm Vanilla, Skin Musk, Velvet Woods, and Sandalwood. “I like that the fragrance is complex, with so many disparate notes, but has such a simple name—Flower,” says Cynthia.

Petal is the bud to the grownup Flower. To create Petal, Cynthia wanted to take the essence of Flower and design a scent that was lighter with a more carefree sensibility. Her eight-year-old daughter even helped pick the notes that would make up the final bouquet. The result is a floral green fragrance that captures the innocent, youthful blush of freshly bloomed Lily of the Valley – and was made to be worn by young girls as well as women who are young at heart.

Each set is worth $103!

To enter, send an email to spoiledprettycontests@gmail.com. Tell me what you love most about your mom or your favorite thing about being a mom – and attach a pic of you with your mom or your child(ren). I will be posting the photos of the winners…so don’t send a pic you don’t want published.

Be sure to include your full name. The subject line should read “Motherload Giveaway.” The contest ends at midnight, May 10th. Winners will be chosen at from among the entrants. On Sunday, May 11th (Mother’s Day), 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. & Canadian residents only.

Good luck!
