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

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

Shining Star For You To See…

Posted on by daneen in Conditioner, Hair | Leave a comment

903 Shining Star For You To See...For my birthday, my sister gave me a makeup bag chock-full of travel-sized Molton Brown goodies. Nothing of the bunch disappoints, but there are a few superstars.

Molton Brown’s Shining Starbloom Haircondition & Detangle is a lightweight leave-in conditioner that brings vitality to lifeless hair, providing superior detangling. After washing and conditioning my hair, all I need is a few mists; it hydrates my dry stands, and my wide-toothed comb glides through like butta.

Shining star for you to see…what your hair can truly be!

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.

I Scream, You Scream

Posted on by daneen in Hair | Leave a comment

organix I Scream, You ScreamAs a little girl, my favorite flavor and scent was vanilla. Not much has changed since then, as I still have a bit of a sweet tooth – and not just when it comes to food. That’s why I am so excited to try Organix Soft & Silky Vanilla Silk Blow Dry Cream.

It’s made with 100% Tahitian Vanilla Bean Oils and silk amino proteins to nourish and strengthen hair. Organix promises that the cream’s “heat memory” lengthens the life of your style, while providing thermal protection from the heat of blow dryers, curling irons, and other hair styling tools. And Lucky Magazine says it smells like vanilla ice cream.

Why am I still writing about this and not out buying it?

Organix products are available at Target, Walmart, Walgreen’s, Amazon.com, and CVS.

Oprah Makes The Cut

Oprah Winfrey is an Oscar-nominated actress, activist, magazine editor, producer, book club sponsor, radio host…and now, hairdresser?

“It’s taken months to get to this moment,” Winfrey said. “It involves a two-time Academy Award winner, a sharp object, and me.”

The media mogul cut nine inches off Hillary Swank’s hair, as part of a charity effort airing tomorrow on her talk show. Swank’s hair will be donated to Pantene Beautiful Lengths – a campaign that encourages people to grow, cut, and donate their hair to create real-hair wigs for women who’ve lost their hair due to cancer.

“I’ve been growing it for the last six months to donate my hair,” Swank says. “I’ve been taking a lot of vitamins and taking really good care of it, knowing that it would go to a woman in need.”

Also as part of Oprah’s Great American Haircut show, 100 viewers received makeovers in one hour.

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?

My Pony Tale

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

scunci hairelastic My Pony TaleI’m a ponytail girl. If you pass me on the street, nine times out of ten, I’m wearing my hair pulled back. Don’t get me wrong, I love hair styling products and I get compliments every time I wear my hair down – but when it comes to my mane, I subscribe to Murphy’s Law.

Pulling my hair back gives me peace of mind – that when I pass a pane of glass or check myself out in a mirror, I will not be horrified by the reflection staring back at me.

When it comes time to tame my mane into a sleek into a pony or bun, my weapons of choice are Scunci No Damage Poly Bands. They keep my hair in place all day – and when it’s time to let my hair down, these hair elastics glide off without pulling or tugging.

Available in two colors (black for those with darker hair, clear for those with lighter hair), they’re virtually undetectable. And for less than $3.50 for a pack of 75, the price can’t be beat.
