If you surveyed the perfumes on my vanity, you’d surely notice that the common thread amongst my favorites is vanilla. Most days, I smell like some variation of vanilla. But as I get older, I’m constantly searching for a more sophisticated take on the scent. I love vanilla, but I’m a little too mature to be walking around smelling like cupcakes.

Turns out the brand has a new collection called Moisture Care, which “delivers enriched moisture for scalp and textured hair.” The product lineup includes a Shampoo, 2-in-1, Conditioner/“Co-Wash” and a “Scalp Soother.” (more…)
I want to take this opportunity to thank Whitmor for partnering with Spoiled Pretty and for generously sponsoring a giveaway of their 5 Tier Acrylic Cosmetic Organizer. And congratulations to Bonnie C., the lucky winner of the contest.
For those of you who entered but didn’t win, I’ve got two things to cheer you up. First, the Whitmor 5 Tier Acrylic Cosmetic Organizer is currently on sale at Zulily – for $5 less than the Amazon price. Secondly, Whitmor is working on a promo code just for Spoiled Pretty readers. So keep checking back, and follow me on Twitter and Facebook…because I’ll be announcing the code there too.
