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

When I entered the store, I was greeted my a really nice saleswoman who asked me what I was CONTINUE READING

Laura Mercier Master Class: Makeup Bag Must-Haves in Your 30s


Every month, my girlfriends from college and I get together for dinner in the Philadelphia area. We started this tradition about two years ago, and - of course - we have a great time catching up and reminiscing!  Most of them are product-obsessed (like me), and most have been through some sort of make-up introductory when we became "of age" to wear it.  Now CONTINUE READING

forever+21+hairband+elastic+ball Get A Handle On Your Hair Elastics

Last week, BellaSugar recommended this Fab Hairband Elastic Ball from Forever 21, for you gals who have major probs keeping track of your hair elastics. At $3.50, it’s definitely a cheap and chic way to stay organized. But here’s my tip (and it’s free)…

You know that mini hairbrush that lives in the bottom of your handbag? Wrap, like, 10 hair elastics around the handle; you’ll never be caught in a bad hair situation, without a way to reign in your mane.

You’re welcome.

zannclip ZannClip Giveaway!!!I am a giveaway fool.

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

Contest is open to U.S. and Canadian residents only.

Since When Can You Sleep Soundly In A Hair Clip?

Posted on by daneen in Hair Accessories, Hair Styling | Leave a comment

zannclip Since When Can You Sleep Soundly In A Hair Clip?If you asked me, a week ago, to name my favorite tried & true hair accessory, I would have said my trusty hair elastic. Old elasty and I go way back and we’re thick as thieves. 99% of the time, I’m pretty unimaginative when it comes to my hair; Monday through Friday, then again on Sunday, my hair is pulled back into a ponytail – and my hair elastic does a pretty decent job of keeping my uninspired style in place.

But I’ve changed my tune, since being introduced to the ZannClip – an ingenious accessory that functions as a ponytail holder, barrette and hair clip…and looks sophisticated and chic whilst doing so. And here’s the kicker: one night, I fell asleep wearing the ZannClip – and awoke from peaceful slumber to find it still perfectly in place. At night, I’m all Princess and the Pea – the slightest noise or discomfort keeps me awake into the wee hours. Yet the ZannClip didn’t affect my quality of sleep. Plus, when I took my hair down, it didn’t leave any crimps or dents in my hair! So I could quickly re-style my hair without fussing or fighting the texture. How many hair clips can make those claims?

The ZannClip is available in three sizes and 14 shades…but I say, go for the gold (24 karat, that is) or platiunum plated. Play the video below to watch the ZannClip in action, then try NOT to buy it.
