Beauty Bloggers For Charity

This holiday season, shop some pretty products that make you more beautiful – inside and out… is the collaboration of almost 50 beauty bloggers (I’m one!) and brands. In the spirit of the holidays, we wanted to make a meaningful contribution to charity – knowing that the most effective donation to any charity is cash.

So we’re putting our makeup on the auction block. Covetable items include products from Aveda, Benefit, Bobbi Brown, Caudalie, Chanel, China Glaze, CoverGirl, Dior, Essie, Estee Lauder, Giorgio Armani, Lancome, MAC, OPI, Philosophy, Stila, Tarte, Urban Decay and many more!

Winning bids will be donated directly to Doctors Without Borders. is the brainchild of fellow blogger and swatch queen, Karla Sugar. “We’re raising money for Doctors Without Borders because women are always disproportionately affected in any disaster. This organization is committed to bringing quality medical care to people in crisis, regardless of race, religion, or political affiliation. They treat rape victims in Papua New Guinea; they make sure women don’t die in childbirth in Pakistan; they helped flood victims in Mexico and earthquake victims in Haiti. They work in 65 countries around the world, and your donation will make an immediate impact.”

The auction is live now, and will close on Monday, December 20 at 5 pm CST.

LOFT Blog Wars & Gift Card Giveaway!

Holiday time is my favorite time of the year. I love scurrying from store to store, playing Santa and getting the must-haves on everyone’s list. I’m a present-wrapping superstar; if there were levels, I’d be a third degree black belt. And the holiday specials at Starbucks (Caramel Brulee Latte, Eggnogg Latte and Peppermint Mocha are my faves!) make the season even sweeter.

But throwing together last-minute ensembles for holiday shindigs? That’s when my inner Scrooge comes out. Here’s the problem – and you can probably relate. You hate everything in your closet; it either doesn’t fit properly, or it’s not festive enough for the party’s dress code. On the other hand, there’s a recession going on and you can’t justify buying an entire outfit for one holiday get-together. Makes you wanna say “bah humbug” and just RSVP with regrets.

Luckily, LOFT is here to rescue you from holiday fashion disaster.

In case you haven’t heard, Ann Taylor Loft is now LOFT. They’ve re-named and re-branded the company, and upped the style ante. And one of the many great things about LOFT that I love is that they’ve got petites! Can I get a hallelujah, shorties?

Anyway, LOFT has some amazing pieces that you can pair with something already in your closet – to create a chic, festive outfit without breaking the bank. For example, pair this Sequin Sparkle Tank with a pair of jean or black pants and layer a blazer or cardigan on top. This Sequin Scarf is only $29.50 and will jazz up just about anything in your wardrobe. What about that go-to little black dress your friends have seen you wear countless times? Take that dress from wah-wah-wah to wow with one of LOFT’s statement necklaces. My favorite is the Clear Gem Bib Necklace with Black Chain – I can think of 10 “new” outfits I could create with this accessory alone!

To celebrate their new name and image, LOFT is having a contest called Blog Wars. Starting today at 4pm, visit LOFT’s Facebook fan page (here’s the link to the actual poll), and vote for your favorite blog (hint: your favorite blog is Spoiled Pretty). On Friday afternoon, the blogger with the most votes wins a $500 LOFT gift card. Child, you know mama loves to shop…so help me out here!

To get you motivated, I’m doing a giveaway too! Go to LOFT’s website and find a festive holiday item. Then come back here and tell me (in the comments) how you’d pair that item with something already in your closet to create a holiday party ensemble. On Friday evening, I’ll award one of the commenters with a $100 LOFT gift card!

Okay, so remember to become a Facebook Fan of LOFT…then vote for Spoiled Pretty. Tell your friends to do the same. It’s war, people…and I came to win. Help a blogger, won’t cha?
