Tatcha, I'm So Glad I Gotcha


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

Bath & Body Works Cooling Gel Lotion Needs A New Name


A few weeks ago, I paid a visit to my local Bath & Body Works store. I was on the hunt for a tropical-smelling body wash that wouldn't break the bank, and B&BW seemed like a good place to search. When I entered the store, I was greeted my a really nice saleswoman who asked me what I was CONTINUE READING

Laura Mercier Master Class: Makeup Bag Must-Haves in Your 30s


Every month, my girlfriends from college and I get together for dinner in the Philadelphia area. We started this tradition about two years ago, and - of course - we have a great time catching up and reminiscing!  Most of them are product-obsessed (like me), and most have been through some sort of make-up introductory when we became "of age" to wear it.  Now CONTINUE READING

laura mercier cosmetics makeup Laura Mercier Master Class: Makeup Bag Must Haves in Your 30s
Every month, my girlfriends from college and I get together for dinner in the Philadelphia area. We started this tradition about two years ago, and – of course – we have a great time catching up and reminiscing!  Most of them are product-obsessed (like me), and most have been through some sort of make-up introductory when we became “of age” to wear it.  Now that we are in our 30s, I thought it was a great time to learn more about skincare (ugh, the dreaded lines and wrinkles) and how to apply make up that works for us now.
.
I instantly thought of my friend, Claire Sloss, who works for Laura Mercier at Nordstrom in the King of Prussia Mall.  They offer a Master Makeup Class, free of charge. There is a maximum of 15 people – we found that 12 was a great number, as there are Laura Mercier artists working with a couple of girls at one time to see what best works for them. Claire just requires a few weeks to plan the logistics – and offered with the class are refreshments and the products that you would like to purchase. The class is done in a private room so you can spread out, ask a lot of questions and have fun!
.
We had a fabulous time! Luis Soto was our lead artist that evening, and he selected me to be his model!  I admit, I was awe-struck because he has worked with many celebrities including Cher, Cindy Lauper, and N’Sync!  “What, you touched Justin Timberlake’s face?!?”  Yeah, the 15-year-old in me came out!!!

Tory Burch Launches Fragrance and Beauty Collection

Tory Burch Fragrance and Beauty Collection Tory Burch Launches Fragrance and Beauty CollectionLast week, Tory Burch added a new fragrance and beauty collection to her stylish empire.

Tory describes her eponymous fragrance as “a balance of femininity and tomboy, citrus and floral, grounded and graceful.” Floral peony and tuberose blend with crisp citrus notes of grapefruit and neroli — anchored by earthy vetiver.

Back in 2009, I interviewed my fellow Philadelphian and she named Vetiver by Guerlain as her signature scent. So I’m not surprised that vetiver (which her dad, Buddy, also wore) became the signature note for her first fragrance.

Tory Burch Bath and Body Collection1 Tory Burch Launches Fragrance and Beauty CollectionThe fragrance is available as an Eau de Parfum ($62-110), Bath and Shower Gel ($50), Body Lotion ($50), Body Cream ($80) Candle ($60) and Solid Perfume Pendant Necklace ($150).

Tory Burch Beauty Tory Burch Launches Fragrance and Beauty Collection

Tory’s capsule beauty collection is comprised of three products: a Bronzer & Blush ($48) a Lip & Cheek Tint ($38) and a Sheer Lipstick ($32) and Face Brush ($48) all inspired by her love of a natural yet polished look.

Spoiled Pretty Philadelphia Style Magazine Philadelphia Style Magazine Shares My Fall Beauty Faves

A few weeks ago, Philadelphia Style Magazine interviewed me for a feature on their website. Since I’m a beauty junkie and can’t resist the opportunity to dish on my favorite products, the story evolved into “Daneen Baird of Spoiled Pretty’s 6 Fall Beauty Picks.” As a Philly gal (born and raised) and a big fan of the magazine (I made the print edition back in 2008 – less than a year after launching this blog), it was awesome to come full circle and to be profiled again. Here’s how they introduced me…

Beauty blogger extraordinaire and Philadelphia resident Daneen Baird knows a thing or two about putting your best face forward. At the helm of the award-winning website, Spoiled Pretty, Baird is constantly ahead-of-the-trend and in-the-know when it comes to the latest and greatest in beauty products and cosmetics. From nail polish reviews to insider tricks of the trade, Baird dishes it all with a bit of sass.
