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


A few weeks ago, I paid a visit to my local Bath & Body Works store. I was on the hunt for a tropical-smelling body wash that wouldn't break the bank, and B&BW seemed like a good place to search. 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

shiny+hair Nice N Easy ColorSeal Conditioning Gloss, Plus A Giveaway!
Love the intensive conditioning treatment that comes in your hair coloring kit, but wish there were more? Then you’re in luck because, this week, your fairy god-blogger is spoiling you pretty with Nice ‘N Easy ColorSeal Conditioning Gloss!

clairol+colorseal Nice N Easy ColorSeal Conditioning Gloss, Plus A Giveaway!ColorSeal Conditioning Gloss is an intensive weekly conditioning treatment specially designed for color-treated hair. This two minute miracle seals the hair cuticle and keeps your color looking healthy and shiny, for up to six weeks. It works wonders when used with any at-home or salon color-treated hair – even highlights!

This past weekend, I tested the ColorSeal Conditioning Gloss on my own hair. Since I only wash my dry, over-processed hair once a week for fear it’ll all fall out, I was a little nervous to try this product. You see, when I don’t use my Holy Grail Conditioner, my hair ends up looking a hot mess for the next seven days. So imagine my surprise when this pina colada-perfumed conditioner left my hair the softest it’s been in forever!

The following day, my BFF couldn’t get over how brilliant and rich my 10-week-old highlights looked. And my facialist, while giving me a head massage, commented on how “silky soft” my hair felt.

You too can have silky, soft tresses…for FREE! Well, seven of you, anyway. This week, I’ve partnered with Clairol for a giveaway!!! Seven readers will win ColorSeal Conditioning Gloss.

To enter, send an email to spoiledprettycontests@gmail.com. Be sure to include your full name. The subject line should read “Nice ‘N Easy ColorSeal Giveaway.” The contest ends at midnight (EST) on Sunday, July 20th. Seven winners will be chosen at random from among the entrants. On Monday, July 21st, I’ll announce the winners’ names. Please, only one entry per person; duplicate entries will not increase your chances of winning. Contest is open to U.S. and Canadian residents only.

Good luck!

How To Get Hot Hair Like Kim Kardashian

Posted on by daneen in Celebrities, Hair, Kim Kardashian | 8 Comments

kim+kardashian+hair How To Get Hot Hair Like Kim Kardashian
Having a bad hair day? Week? Year? Lifetime?!?!?!? Don’t worry…Kim Kardashian is “here to help.” Below are some tips she recently shared on her website:

Kat asks:
If you are ever free from your busy schedule, can you do a tutorial on how you do your daily hair style? It’s so GORGEOUS!!!

Kim answers:
Thank you, Kat! I try not to wash or style my hair everyday because that is just too much stress on anyone’s hair.

Celeste asks:
I absolutely love your hair! It always looks beautiful and healthy! I especially love it in the episode, where you told your family you were posing in PLAYBOY. In that episode your hair has these great curls that are tight but loose at the same time. How were you able to make it look like that?

Kim answers:
I am not the greatest at curling my hair myself, so when you see mine curly it’s probably been done by my hair stylist. My hair holds curls really well, so it usually lasts a few days. If yours holds curl well, then you can keep that style and maybe add a new curl or two (or maybe just an extra dash of product) the next day to freshen up the look! For the Playboy shoot, my hair was curled with a curling iron and I think I did it the day before, so it fell out nicely.

Curly Q asks:
Hey Kim, I admire your hair a lot! It’s dark, long, and gorgeous. How do you style it when you wake up, go hang out, or even go to events? I have dark, long curly hair, and whether I straighten or “curl” it, it never turns out like yours.

Kim answers:
Hey, Curly Q! My hair is bone straight, but I can pass along some useful information: If you can get an ionic straightener, that may help your hair a lot to flat iron the curls out. They say the ionic straighteners and curlers are the best!

Fallon asks:
How do you do your hair? It always looks so gorgeous!

Kim answers:
I always put volumizers and thickening spray in my hair and blow dry it. I love fully, sexy hair! I also always tease the top part of my hair by the crown of my head to give it more of a lift!

Moraqy asks:
Hey Kim, I just wanna say that you look absolutely gorgeous without makeup. I want to know if it’s possible for you to post a video showing us how you curl ur hair? Because me and my older sister LOVE how you do your hair. We always Google pictures of you because we tried many times to do it like you but unfortunately it never turns out like your hair, so if you could do that I would REALLY appreciate it!

Kim answers:
I will definitely do a hair video blog as well! Maybe I can recruit my hair dresser Clyde to teach me on camera. Stay tuned!

Liz asks:
Kim, my hair is dark like yours and I wanted to know what you thought about adding color to your hair as in highlights? I would love to know what you think.

Kim answers:
I have thought about it so many times but haven’t done it. I think dark hair is pretty so I am sticking with it like this for now. My sister Khloe did all-over highlights recently, though, and it looks great!

Stacy asks:
Hi Kim, I am a huge fan and I watch your show and even the reruns. I would love to know how you get your hair so shiny and healthy looking. Is it hair extensions and, if so, how long is your real hair? I know you have given us your makeup tips but could you please give us your hair tips? I have long brown hair but get lots of split ends. Thank you. icon smile How To Get Hot Hair Like Kim Kardashian

Kim answers:
I always change up my shampoos and conditioners to kind of shock the hair. If you use the same stuff every day, your hair gets used to it and doesn’t give the same bounce and shiny affect. So I switch products every other day. I also don’t wash my hair everyday. It strips the hair of it’s natural oils and can prevent it from growing longer. I also make sure to use an oil at the bottom of my hair every time I shower; like Biosilk or some split end mender. It really helps! If you are also laying out in the sun or going to be in the pool, condition your hair while you are laying out. It looks wet like you were just in the pool but moisturizes it and protects it from the sun!

Pearl Jam Rocks, But Eddie’s Hair Needs A Little Vitalogy

Posted on by daneen in Conditioner, Hair | 2 Comments

Eddie+Vedder+Hair Pearl Jam Rocks, But Eddies Hair Needs A Little Vitalogy
Last night, Señor Spoiled Pretty and I saw Pearl Jam in concert. After 18 years, they still sound incredible and put on a ridiculously amazing live show. But one thing I couldn’t ignore was the state of Eddie Vedder’s hair.

In the heyday of grunge, Eddie’s wavy locks were glossy and lush. Last night, however, Eddie’s hair looked fried and – ironically – grungy. I realize that Eddie’s a surfer and could give a rats ass about split ends. But that didn’t keep this beauty junkie from wanting to bum rush the stage, armed with one of my new beauty finds.

elasticizer Pearl Jam Rocks, But Eddies Hair Needs A Little VitalogyEddie is a prime candidate for Elasticizer, a pre-shampoo conditioning treatment from Philip Kingsley that dramatically heals your hair after just one use. It delivers a dose of moisture to the core of the cuticle – leaving hair silky, shiny, and supple. Suitable for all hair types, Elasticizer won’t thicken hair or weigh it down. It provides UV protection too, even after washing – helping prolong the life of color treatments.

Just apply to wet hair, concentrating on mid-lengths and ends, and work through for a minute. Then shampoo and condition as usual. For severely damaged hair, cover with a plastic cap for 20 minutes before shampooing.

Elasticizer is available at philipkingsley.com.
