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

bumpits+photo Be Warned, Ladies: Boys Are On To Your BumpitsA 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.

Fall Beauty Trends on the NBC 10! Show – Plus a Giveaway!

Fall+beauty+trends Fall Beauty Trends on the NBC 10! Show   Plus a Giveaway!

As you probably know, today is the official kickoff of New York Fashion Week, Spring 2010. In fact, I’ll be traveling to NYC on Saturday to attend Fashion Week events and report from backstage. But before we move forward, let’s take a look back to Fashion Week, Fall 2009. Last spring, I went behind the scenes at some of the hottest shows – and noticed some emerging trends.

Last week, I appeared on the NBC 10! Show to talk about five of the fiercest beauty trends for fall – and introduce viewers to must-have products to help them nail the looks.

Watch and learn…


For more of my NBC 10! Show appearances, click here!

In honor of my latest TV appearance, I’m giving away a selection of the products featured in the segment!!! One lucky winner will receive:

Revlon Brow Specialist Kit: The set includes three brow stencils in varying degrees of arch to fit every shape, tweezers, a universally flattering brow pencil, and brow gel – all in a sleek carrying case.

Urban Decay Ink For Eyes Liner (all six shades!): More precise than a pencil and more forgiving than a liquid, this super-smooth formula offers more control, and buildable coverage than your average liner. The angled liner brush creates a razor sharp line, and the formula lasts all day (or night). Available in six gorgeous colors: Binge (midnight blue), Demolition (brown), Empire (eggplant), Loaded (deep green), Pyrotechnics (iridescent glitter with clear base), and Zero (black).

Goody Resort Glamour Kingston Bobby Slides: These are the next generation of bobby pins. They are some of the most darling bobby pins I’ve ever seen, and come in a selection of shades sure to match your personality, hair color and/or ensemble.

OPI Matte Collection (all six shades!): OPI recently released six of their best-selling shades in non-glossy formulation. The collection includes: Alpine Snow(a fresh crisp white), Gargantuan Green Grape (green kissed by the summer sun), La Paz-itively Hot (a hot pink perfect for when you’re Bo-livia la vida loca), Lincoln Park After Dark (where midnight meets purple), Russian Navy (wait until you see this deep-sea indigo!) and You Don’t Know Jacques! (if you don’t know how trendy this taupe is!).

To enter the giveaway, send an email to spoiledprettycontests@gmail.com. Be sure to include your full name and mailing address.
