Rent The Runway Giveaway!

closet+woman Rent The Runway Giveaway!

How many times has this happened to you?

There’s a special occasion on the horizon and you’ve got nothing to wear. So you search and search (and search some more) for the perfect dress. Except you never find it, and you end up settling on a dress that’s event appropriate and looks halfway decent because you’ve run out of time and going naked isn’t an option. So once you’ve donned the so-so dress, it gets banished to the back of your closet – never to be worn again because, frankly, you were never truly in love with it to begin with.

Story of my life. Maybe my problem is that I’m a celebrity – in my own head – who hates to wear the same special outfit twice. Or perhaps it’s that getting all dolled up in a fresh frock is so damn fun.

So a few weeks ago as I planned a blog business trip to NYC, I was literally trippin’ about my lack of wardrobe options. After an exhaustive search for the perfect ensemble, I was almost ready to settle on this sad sundress hanging in my closet…until I remembered Rent The Runway, a website were you can rent designer dresses and accessories.

Here’s how it works: Search the dresses and accessories you love from over 100 of the top designers in the world. Schedule a delivery date. Select a FREE backup dress size for the perfect fit. The dresses and accessories are yours for 4 or 8 days! When you’re done looking cute, put your order in the pre-paid package and drop it in the nearest USPS mailbox. They take care of the dry cleaning.

Since I’m petite with an hourglass figure, finding a dress that fits is the proverbial needle in a haystack. So as I perused Rent The Runway’s selection, I opted for the India Paisley Dress from Tibi (left)- thanks to the short length and adjustable straps. The dress also has hidden boy shorts underneath, which was an added bonus. And if you rent a second dress, it’s only $25. So I also chose this By The Lily Pond Dress by Yumi Kim (right) – just in case the Tibi dress was a bust. If you’re particularly concerned about fit, there are great user reviews – or you can chat with a “fit specialist.”
To complete my outfit, I rented these gorge Kendra Scott Danielle earrings in Turquoise. It pained me so much to return them that, this weekend, I broke down and bought them at the designer’s website (and scored 20% off with promo code PSW20 – expires 7/5).

Oh…and I forgot to mention that Rent The Runway just announced that they have Lancôme products available for purchase!

The Tibi dress (in the smaller size) ended up fitting great – and, as you can see, I paired it (and my Kendra Scott earrings) with a Talbots cardigan, Aldo sandals and Banana Republic fedora.
I had such a great rental experience that I want to give Spoiled Pretty readers the opportunity to try it too. So I’m partnering with Rent The Runway on a fash-tastic giveaway, and one lucky lady will win a $100 gift card!!!

Hawaiian Tropic Shimmer Effect Lotions Giveaway!

Hawaiian+Tropic+Shimmer+Effect+Lotion+SPF+40 Hawaiian Tropic Shimmer Effect Lotions Giveaway!

Unless you want to look like Magda from There’s Something About Mary in 30 years, sunscreen is a necessity – especially in the summertime. But who actually applies it on the regular? Problem is that we ladies spend lots of time and oodles of money protecting our pretty faces, yet neglect the rest of our bodies. Sunscreen becomes an afterthought because it’s utilitarian. It’s boring. It’s not sexy. Well, until now, that is…

I just discovered a new line of products that gives new meaning to “hot fun in the summertime.” Hawaiian Tropic Shimmer Effect Lotion Sunscreens, available in SPF 20 and 40, contain prestige minerals that add a soft, subtle sheen to enhance and highlight skin tone while providing broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection. The rich and creamy formula features skin-nourishing antioxidants and Hawaiian Tropic’s signature coconut scent. The Shimmer Effect Coconut Papaya After Sun Lotion is infused with Aloe Vera and Cocoa, Shea and Mango butters, and is great for everyday use.

The shimmer that these products leave on your skin looks so good that, last week, I applied the After Sun Lotion post-shower…and I had absolutely nowhere to go. Seriously, I just sat on the sofa marveling at my shimmery skin.
Hawaiian+Tropic+Shimmer+Effect+After+Sun+Lotion+1 Hawaiian Tropic Shimmer Effect Lotions Giveaway!On a level of 1 to 10 (1 being blah, bare skin and 10 being J.Lo), the Shimmer Effect Lotions deliver a level 6 shimmer. They’re workplace and weekend appropriate. And – as if you needed one more reason to open your wallet – they’re only $8 each!
When a product blows me away, I can’t keep it to myself. Which is why I’m posting this glowing review…and hooking one Spoiled Pretty reader up! Sharing is caring, as they say. One of you will receive all three products, plus a gold Hawaiian Tropic tote bag to, er, tote your beauty booty.

Le Col Cashmere Giveaway!

Le+Col+LW+mini+card Le Col Cashmere Giveaway!

I don’t know what the weather is like in your neck of the woods – but these days, Philadelphia is pretty much indistinguishable from the Arctic tundra. It’s the kind of cold where you pile on whatever is warm – no matter how frumpy dumpy it makes you look. Lucky for me (and my sense of style), I recently became acquainted with a cold weather accessory that is both toasty warm and tres chic!

Le+Col+LMH+card+sm Le Col Cashmere Giveaway!

Le Col Cashmere is an affordable luxury, made of 100% cashmere and finished by hand in a traditional French torsade pattern. The updated twist on the winter scarf provides even more comfort than the standard cold weather accessory due to its construction. The tube scarf’s seamless “pullover” style, as opposed to the standard wrap-around scarf, provides full coverage and protection. So whether you’re riding the streets on your Vespa or simply out for an afternoon stroll, Le Col Cashmere’s snood will keep you toasty warm on even the most blistering cold days.

“In addition to its practical sensibility, the product is non-gender specific and therefore appeals to both men and women who are looking to show off their personal sense of style during the winter months,” explains Ruben Auszenkier, Le Col Cashmere co-founder and General Manager Europe.

Le+Col+CB+card+sm Le Col Cashmere Giveaway!

The must-have style of the season is available in two equally comfortable and flattering silhouettes – the signature Le Col Cashmere snood and Le Grand Col Cashmere’s extra long snood – and five gorgeous shades (I own the camel).

You can own one too because, this week, Spoiled Pretty is partnering with Le Col Cashmere and one reader will win a Le Col Cashmere snood in his/her choice of color!!!

Enter to win by leaving a message in the comments section. Make sure to include your email or another way for me to get in touch, just in case you get lucky!

Contest is open to U.S. residents. The giveaway ends at noon (EST) on Sunday, February 20, 2011. Good luck!

Did you know that Valentine’s Day is next week? Well, it is – a week from today, in fact. Just thought I’d remind you, in case that obnoxious red aisle at your local drugstore hadn’t tipped you off already.

To celebrate Valentine’s Day at Spoiled Pretty, I’m partnering with June Jacobs and Stila for a giveaway. Just think of me as Cupid – hooking up one lucky winner with some love-ly cosmetics:

June Jacobs Limited-Edition “Kiss In The Park” Lip Kit
Every true romance begins with a kiss. So treat your lips as well as you treat your skin with a lip facial trio that supports one of New York’s most romantic destinations, Central Park. To support her favorite place in New York City, June Jacobs has partnered with the Central Park Conservancy to create a Limited Edition version of her bestselling Lip Kit – “Kiss In The Park.” The first step to perfecting your pucker is to apply the emollient lip exfoliation treatment which utilizes sugar granules to gently sweep away dead skin cells, leaving lips silky smooth. Next, the luxurious Lip Masque is applied to gently calm and nourish the lips. The last step, Lip Renewal is infused with shea butter, mango, aloe and ceramides to instantly provide exceptional and continual relief to dry, dehydrated and chapped lips. The end result is lips that have been rescued, refreshed and revitalized – ready for kissing.
