The shower and my chemically-straightened hair are frenemies. Every seventh day when I wash my hair, they get along great in a shampoo Shangri-la. But the rest of the week, I employ a shower cap to keep the steam from undoing the silky straightness. I have been wearing shower caps since I was a child, and I’ve tried them CONTINUE READING

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
Now that I have two kids - and the youngest being 6 weeks old - I needed to get better acquainted with quick-dry nail polish options. I hardly have time to do anything, let alone a DIY - so I needed to find some lacquers that fit my new lifestyle.
Yesterday, while going my grocery shopping, I picked up Revlon CONTINUE READING
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
An avid traveler and true beauty connoisseur, Lisa Hoffmanspent years traveling the world with her high-profile husband, Dustin, and their six children, immersing herself in diverse cultures and becoming well-informed about beauty secrets from around the globe. Throughout her travels, Lisa has methodically uncovered the most essential skin care ingredients, all of which combine to ensure potent and high performing treatment systems.
In 2007, after six years in development, Lisa launched her very own beauty line dedicated to excellence and simplicity. And in 2009, Lisa Hoffman and Spoiled Pretty are partnering for a giveaway!
Four kharmacally blessedreaders will win Lisa Hoffman’s Spa Facial Lip Polisher, which contains a slew of nourishing, moisturizing and exfoliating ingredients for a softer and smoother pout.

The result is smooth, comfortable and silky lips that are ready for absolutely anything.

The subject line should read “Lisa Hoffman Giveaway.” The contest ends at midnight (EST) on Sunday, July 5th. Four winners will be chosen at random from among the entrants. On Monday, July 6th, I’ll announce the winners’ names. Please, only one entry per person; duplicate entries will not increase your chances of winning. Contest is open to U.S. and Canadian residents.
I’m a beauty blogger, which means I test a plethora of products. So it’s not very often that I come across something so fun and ingenious that it makes me giddy. Bath & Body Works Liplicious 2-in-1 Moisturizing Lip Color & Sugar Scrub has me giddy and smacking my lips. And what’s more? Normally $12, B&BW has slashed prices – so now you can buy two 2-in-1 Moisturizing Lip Color & Sugar Scrubs for the price of one!
Peep the directions: Smooth dull, dry lips with this delicious brown sugar scrub once a day and lick off the remaining sugar. Then, apply luscious lip color to moisturize.
Besides the fun of licking the sugar scrub off your lips, Liplicious 2-in-1 Moisturizing Lip Color & Sugar Scrub does a great job of buffing scaly, winter lips. And the Pomegranate/Brown Sugar Scrub combination has a gorgeous dusty-rose pink lip moisturizer that I’m loving right now. The lip color is actually quite long-lasting. The other night, I applied it before bed and I awoke looking much cuter than I typically do at 7:30 in the morn.
Liplicious 2-in-1 Moisturizing Lip Color & Sugar Scrub is available in Pomegranate, Candied Apple, and Coconut Truffle. Yum…makes me wanna lick my lips.
When I popped by my parents’ house today, I was warmly greeted by their housekeeper, Ruth, whom I haven’t seen in a while. “Marriage certainly agrees with you. You’re positively glowing,” she said.
Marriage to Mr. Spoiled Pretty is bliss…but I have to admit that MAC, not my man, is most likely responsible for my radiant skin.
MAC’s Volcanic Ash Exfoliator, from the Future Earth collection is made of natural volcanic ash and sugar crystals. When I twisted the cap off of the jar, the oily, mineral-rich scrub kinda reminded me of Primordial soup.
It doesn’t look like something you’d want to smear all over your face, but with its promises of softer, smoother, clearer and less-oily skin, I did just that. Not too cute, I know…but wait until you see your skin after you wash it off. Mwah!
The Prep + Prime Microfine Lip Refinisher is another product from the Future Earth collection that does double duty. This dual-sided lip stick exfoliates to scrub away scaly skin, and conditions lackluster lips. Pucker up!
Earth-shatteringly lava-licious: the explosively earthy power of volcanic ash brought into one dynamic new all-black elements, Volcanic Ash Exfoliator. Formulated from volcanic ashes, this is the real thing – straight from world-famous island of Vanuatu. Naturally harvested from the ash of live volcanoes, this formula is mineral- and sulphur-rich. For absolutely deeply-cleansed, natural radiance, use one to three times a week. To bring your lips up to par: new Prep + Prime Microfine Lip Refinisher. A handy dual-action pre-makeup lip conditioner that exfoliates and moisturizes. Gives any lip color formula the perfect smooth base to work from. When it comes to great skin, this is where it’s happening: Future Earth.

Charged Water Charged water, fused with vital ions from a diamond and instilled with a spirit-lifting therapeutic aroma, then delivered to the skin in the soothing aura of revitalizing hydrating mist. Like its source – a diamond – on application it makes the skin feel clear, sparkling, pure and energized. Its aroma, a blend of green tea and citrus. Suggested Retail Price: $19.00
