Kestrel Cosmetic Bags: A Luxe Look For Less

kestrel makeupbag I love Kestrel Cosmetic Bags. I discovered them last fall at my local Nordstrom Rack store. There are a bunch of different styles and fabrics, but what I love the most is that they are very high quality at a very low price point. When I first saw them in store, I was instantly drawn to the display. The bargain shopper that I am, I immediately looked at the price tag and did a double take. I expected it to say something like $30, marked down from $50+. So imagine my shock when the price tag said $10. I quickly picked up another bag and checked that price tag to see if a mistake had been made.

Nope…no mistake. Although the design, fabrication and hardware are luxe, Kestrel bags only look like you broke the bank. So I did what any expert shopper would do: I loaded up my cart with variety of styles for holiday gift-giving. Every December, I run into the same problem – I have a ton of friends, co-workers and kids’ teachers to thank, and I can only afford presents that cost about $10 each. But most gifts under $10 are utter crap and you’d rather give nothing at all than give someone a $10 piece of junk. Kestrel bags are the perfect solution to this Christmastime conundrum. (more…)

Holiday Gift Guide 2015: Garrett Popcorn

Every October, I start planning Spoiled Pretty’s annual Holiday Gift Guide. And although I’m open to just about anything that will be of interest to readers, I don’t typically include food items on the list. But this year, I was contacted by the folks at Garrett Popcorn Shops to see if I’d like to try a sample for possible inclusion.

Garrett Popcorn Shops is a gourmet popcorn company that hand-crafts small batches in-shop daily, using only the highest-quality ingredients and signature blend of non-GMO kernels. This holiday season, Garrett Popcorn Shops is offering two limited time flavors:

White Chocolate-Covered CaramelCrisp®


Peppermint Frost (debuting for the first time this year)

The company sent me tins of both to try and they were SCRUMDIDDLYUMPTIOUS! (more…)
