If You Have Hair, The Wet Brush is a Must Have


For years, I have used an oversized wide-tooth comb to detangle my notoriously impossible to detangle post-shampoo hair. The amount of hair that would get caught in the teeth was somewhat alarming. But I chalked it up to the fact that I only wash my hair once a week - so maybe the hair loss really wasn't all that CONTINUE READING

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Cover April Issue of Vogue


Welp, folks, it looks like Kanye finally wore Anna Wintour down and got his baby mama a coveted Vogue cover. So the rumors were true. There was buzz a few months back that Kim would cover the fashion bible, but then everyone assumed it would be a foreign Vogue - given Anna's alleged aversion to all things Kardashian. I CONTINUE READING

Bath & Body Works Summer Vanillas Collection

bath+and+body+works+summer+vanillas Bath & Body Works Summer Vanillas Collection

As you probably know, I just moved. It was a very stressful experience, considering Mr. Spoiled Pretty and I had about three weeks prep time and we have way too much stuff. Okay, I’ll be honest…it’s just me who has too much stuff.

Packing and unpacking your life’s possessions is just one of the most annoying and tedious jobs of all time, and I am so glad to be (almost) done with it. But I have to say that there’s a silver lining to the moving experience – shopping, which I’ve been doing a lot of lately. Bed Bath & Beyond, HomeGoods, TJ Maxx, Marshalls, Kohls, Pier 1, Walmart, Target and Lowe’s and I have been like this the past few days – and my Visa is still smokin’.

One of my other favorite pre-move destinations is Bath & Body Works. I just love their products – fabulous quality for not a lot of money. That’s the best type of shopping. And don’t you just love how Bath & Body Works always seems to be having a sale? Every time I go in there, the salesperson is all “Today, you can get four of these for the price of three…and we’re going to throw in a product from our Signature Collection for free.” Um, yes please.

Anyway, I was in there last week and I discovered their new Summer Vanilla Collection. Vanilla is my absolute favorite scent, so I had to give these products a whiff. The three fragrances – Berry Vanilla, Coconut Vanilla and Lemon Vanilla – smelled so delish, I threw all three Anti-Bacterial Gentle Foaming Hand Soaps into my mesh bag. The sinks in my home are always accompanied by a Bath & Body Works anti-cac soap, so this turned out to be a very productive trip.

In addition to the anti-bacterial hand soaps, the Summer Vanilla Collection also includes cooling mist, fragrance mist, shower gel, body lotion, lip gloss and candles. Get on this, girls.

Dynamic Duo: Votre Vu Duette Luxe Lip Balm and Hand Crème

Votre+Vu+Duette Dynamic Duo: Votre Vu Duette Luxe Lip Balm and Hand Crème

Believe it or not, I wear hardly any makeup on a daily basis. I’m so pressed for time in the mornings that I have neither the 15 minutes nor the energy to spare. But I’m not entirely low-maintenance. I’m never without lip balm and hand cream in my purse.

So I was thrilled when Votre Vu’s Duette recently showed up on my doorstep to review. Duette is a duo of deeply moisturizing lip balm and decadently rich hand crème in one package, and has become a staple in my purse since I first used it.

Flip the first cap on the tube to reveal a nourishing lip balm made from coconut oil, shea butter and beeswax. A deliciously light and natural coconut flavor delivers a guiltless treat to your lips with every application. The cap also contains a clandestine mirror for precise application.

Flip open the second cap to enjoy the Almond Pie Nutrient Rich Luxe Hand Crème. This intoxicating hand cream deeply moisturizes without any greasy residue, and leaves a soft veil of almond and coconut fragrance lingering on the skin. Beautifully absorbed, this special formula was developed to maintain the health, beauty and suppleness of your hands, while delighting your nose with a decadent aroma. Formulated with sunflower, grape seed and jojoba oils combined with moisturizing and healing aloe, wheat proteins and natural sun filters, this sweet treat is one big serving of hydrating heaven. The cream also contains sun filters for UVA/UVB protection to maintain skin tone, while helping protect and keep hands soft, supple and younger looking.

I’m digging on Duette so much that I’m compelled to spread the wealth. So, this week, I’m partnering with Votre Vu for a giveaway. Three readers will win this dynamic duo, which retails for $38.

To enter the giveaway, leave a message in the comments section; make sure to leave your email or another way for me to get in touch, just in case you get lucky. Contest is open to U.S. residents only. The giveaway ends at noon (EST) on Tuesday, May 4, 2010. Good luck!

Bath & Body Works Healthy Clean Kitchen Collection

bath+and+body+works+Healthy+Clean+Kitchen+Collection Bath & Body Works Healthy Clean Kitchen Collection

Bath & Body Works just launched the Healthy Clean Kitchen Collection – a range of hand washes, sanitizers and hand lotions specially designed for use in the kitchen. A breeding ground for bacteria and unpleasant odors, the kitchen is a place where clean hands are a must. So Bath & Body Works developed a collection of cleansing anti-bacterial products that not only kill germs, but also eliminate lingering cooking smells like garlic and onion – all while infusing hands with fresh, clean fragrances like crisp citrus, lush fruit and fresh-cut herbs.

The antibacterial formulas also protect and replenish skin as they refresh, nourishing kitchen-worn hands. Each of the following odor-fighting, germ-killing essentials is available in Sunburst Tangerine, Crisp Cucumber, Pure Vanilla and Ginger Pear fragrances:

Anti-Bacterial Gentle Foaming Hand Soap: Specially designed to fight germs and eliminate odors for healthy, clean hands in the kitchen, this gentle yet powerful formula kills common kitchen bacteria with trusted anti-bacterial agents while Fresh Source™ odor eliminators get rid of lingering cooking smells. An exclusive blend of moisturizing coconut milk and olive fruit extracts helps to nourish and soften skin, while mango fruit extract leaves hands gently cleansed and conditioned.

Anti-Bacterial Deep Cleansing Hand Soap: Get a powerful deep clean in the kitchen with this bacteria-fighting formula. Developed with Fresh Source™ and potent germ-killers, the deep cleansing soap employs exfoliating microspheres and cleansing bamboo extract for smooth, soft, ultra-clean hands. A moisturizing blend of honey, coconut milk and olive fruit extracts nourishes and softens.

Anti-Bacterial Hand Gel Sanitizer: While powerful anti-bacterial agents combat germs and Fresh Source™ fights odors, moisturizing Tahitian Palm Milk leaves hands feeling clean and conditioned with this instant gel sanitizer.

Moisturizing Hand Lotion: Developed to eliminate odors while nourishing kitchen-worn hands, this hydrating formula includes Vitamin E, Macadamia Oil, Oat, Apple and Grape Seed extracts to condition and soften. Fresh Source™ gets rid of lingering cooking smells as the formula moisturizes, leaving hands hydrated and freshly scented.
