Because Shaving is the Pits: DERMAdoctor Gorilla Warfare Antiperspirant Giveaway!


My hair grows like a weed. Unfortunately, the hair of which I speak is not on my head. My legs and underarms give my razor a workout. If I shave in the morning, by afternoon, I've got stubble. And forget about skipping days...unless I want to look like Sasquatch. Getting rid of the hair is not only expensive (I CONTINUE READING

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: BlowPro Perfect Shower Cap


The shower and my chemically-straightened hair are frenemies. Every seventh day when I wash my hair, they get along great in a shampoo Shangri-la. But the rest of the week, I employ a shower cap to keep the steam from undoing the silky straightness. I have been wearing shower caps since I was a child, and I’ve tried them CONTINUE READING

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

jessbiel Biel Goes Blonde
Earlier today, the paparazzi snapped this photo of Jessica Biel – and her new flaxen do – at London’s Heathrow airport. In just the last hour or so, this pic has been popping up all over the Internet – and everyone’s weighing in on whether her haircolor is a hit or miss. But what baffles me is that no one has commented on her swollen upper lip – that sucker is huge!

amy winehouse Back To Black?
Amy Winehouse debuted a new blonde do earlier today. She’s pretty impulsive, so I don’t expect this look to last…she’ll be back to black in no time.

I am loving her Johnny Depp ‘Cry Baby’ tee, though.

It’s Your Turn To Shine

Posted on by daneen in Hair, Hair Color | 1 Comment

johnfriedacolorglaze Its Your Turn To ShineLately, my hair has been looking quite dull. But I was getting tired of piling on shine products, just to have them build up and weigh down my hair. I’d heard glowing (no pun intended) reviews of John Frieda’s Luminous Color Glaze – so I decided to buy a bottle to see if it also deserved the Spoiled Pretty stamp of approval. I’m happy to report that my $9.99 was money well spent.

Luminous Color Glaze is the first easy-to-use, at-home treatment from John Frieda Collection that delivers the results of a professional salon glaze, right in the shower. This easy-to-use gel-creme formula turns the light on dull, lackluster hair – adding a hint of glossy color and multi-dimensional shine.

Immediately, I noticed that my hair was more visibly shiny, and silky – to boot. After 3-5 uses, it promises increased shine, a hint of glossy color, and subtly blended grays. After 6-8 uses, you’ll notice multi-dimensional shine, rich color, and gray hairs concealed.

Luminous Color Glaze is not a permanent hair color, so it will not lift or lighten color. Ammonia and peroxide-free, it’s safe for damaged or processed hair.

John Frieda products are available at your local drugstore.

Lighten Up

 Lighten Up
As the days get shorter and the weather colder, most women opt to go darker – with their hair, cosmetics, and wardrobe. Christina Ricci isn’t most women. Just in time for Halloween, the actress traded in her signature goth style for a lighter, brighter look at a Louis Vuitton event in Los Angeles.

What do you think of Christina’s new do? Is it a keeper? Or should she go, as Amy Winehouse puts it, back to black?
