The Look For Much Less: Amrita Singh Muri Headband


For two years, I coveted this Jennifer Behr Rope Knotted Headwrap. But its $150+ price tag prevented me from making dream to reality.

Then a few months ago, I spotted this identical headband (see below) on sale at HauteLook. It’s the Muri Headband by Amrita Singh. I snatched it up – two, actually (gold and red) – and I’ve received so many compliments! I wanted to tell you all, but the sale ended before I got the chance to share the deets. (more…)

Be Warned, Ladies: Boys Are On To Your Bumpits

A few weeks ago, Mr. Spoiled Pretty left to meet up with some of his buddies and I stayed home to catch up on some blogging and bad reality television. Just as I was getting ready for bed that night, I received the following text message from my husband:

“What’s a Bumpit?”

Turns out our friend, Chris, noticed the waitress’s sky-high hairdo and asked her if she was wearing a Bumpit – like the one he had seen featured in the ubiquitous infomercials. There was no shame in the bar maid’s game…she fessed up to wearing a Bumpit, and seem amazed that Chris had guessed her pompadour partner-in-crime.

So what’s the moral of the story, chicas? Boys are getting wise to our beauty tricks. If you decide to rock the Bumpit, don’t be surprised when someone outs you…or if a candid pic ends up on the Bumpit Sightings Blog.
