Award Winning FOTD

FOTD+2 Award Winning FOTD
Last night, I attended the PRSA/Philadelphia Pepperpot Awards – a celebration of outstanding performance in public relations by practitioners in agencies, industry, government, and non-profit organizations. The American Cancer Society’s Marketing Department (of which I am a member) was nominated for our efforts to pass Clean Indoor Air (smoke-free) legislation in Pennsylvania.

The Pepperpot Award has grown into one of the most coveted awards in the field of public relations, so I pulled out the big guns and went all out with my makeup. It’s a good thing I did, because my team ended up winning first place in the Public Affairs category! Yay us!

And the icing on the cake? Charm City Cakes, the bakery featured in the Food Network series, Ace of Cakes, created a magnificent confection that looked just like an actual pepperpot!

Here are the products I used to create my award-winning look:

Sweet Treat: Jaqua Raspberry Buttercream Giveaway

 Sweet Treat: Jaqua Raspberry Buttercream Giveaway
When the temperature starts to dip, I start craving sweets. Once in a blue moon, I’ll indulge my sweet tooth with Dark Chocolate M&Ms – but my diet only allows for the occasional dalliance. Fortuitously, my beauty arsenal is stocked with products from Jaqua, which all smell so decadently delish, that I’m tempted to taste. Oh, who am I kidding? I have tasted – and unfort, the flavor doesn’t quite correspond with the scrumptious scent. Anyway, moving on…

I am a huge fan of dessert-smelling bath and body products, and I can say – without hesitation – that Jaqua’s Buttercream Frosting offerings take the cake. Literally. I want to lick myself every time I use the Buttercream products (there I go again). Jaqua’s Raspberry Buttercream Frosting Collection, a yummy marriage of juicy raspberry and sweet cream, is the newest addition to the menu. The fragrance is so mouth-watering that I couldn’t bear salivating solo.

So Spoiled Pretty has partnered with Jaqua for a giveaway! One grand prize winner will receive:

 Sweet Treat: Jaqua Raspberry Buttercream Giveaway
* Raspberry Buttercream Frosting Shower Crème: A rich and creamy shower wash filled with good-for-your skin ingredients such as fruit and aloe extracts, macadamia and evening primrose oils, and vitamins B5, A and E.

 Sweet Treat: Jaqua Raspberry Buttercream Giveaway
* Raspberry Buttercream Frosting Sinfully Rich Body Butter: This indulgent, nourishing formula blends serious skincare with a rich raspberry fragrance. Formulated with cocoa butter and natural extracts, the whipped body butter lavishes skin.

 Sweet Treat: Jaqua Raspberry Buttercream Giveaway
* Raspberry Buttercream Frosting Hand Crème: This luxurious hand crème is packed with the ripe, rich essence of raspberry. Treat your hands to the nourishing indulgence of meadowfoam seed oil, fruit extracts and vitamins A and E – luscious hydrators designed to keep hands soft and pampered all day long.

 Sweet Treat: Jaqua Raspberry Buttercream Giveaway
* Raspberry Buttercream Frosting Lip Whip: Satisfy your sweet tooth without a single calorie. This delicious, nourishing lip gloss is formulated with vitamins A, E, and C to keep lips soft and kissable.

Two runners-up will win the Raspberry Buttercream Hand Crème and Lip Whip.

You know your retractable lip brush? The cheap gold one where the tip falls off every time you use it? The one that deposits more hairs on your lips than pigment? Yeah, that lip brush. Here’s my advice to you…th’ow it out, as my mother would say.

I mean, why would you keep holding on to a beauty tool that makes your mouth look a hot mess when you can replace it with one that makes you look hot, period?

Beauty addicts, meet Beauty Addicts LipCLICK Retractable Brush. The best lip brush I’ve used – retractable or otherwise, in forever. Hands down.

Chic, sleek and the perfect definition of form meets function. The brush opens to reveal a full size lip brush with just one click – and slides back after use into a fully protected casing. Perfect for on the go application for your busy life!

It’s my holy grail retractable lip brush. Go get you one – and while you’re there, pick up one of Beauty Addicts’ RelationLIPS palettes. I’m partial to ExpressLIPS, a combination of four nudes (buff, rosy-gold, cream and bronze) that make for the inherently sexy Angelina kisser.
