Last 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. (more…)
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.

I need another lip balm like I need a hole in the head. But when I saw Nivea’s Vanilla & Macadamia Kiss Lip Butter while picking up some essentials at CVS, I couldn’t resist tossing a little non-essential treat into my basket. The name is perfectly apt – it goes on like butta and smells like (you guessed it) a vanilla-macadamia mashup. Imparts good moisture and gives the lips a healthy sheen. It’s packaged into a slim tin that conveniently stows in your pocket or the smallest of handbags (I keep mine in the car console)…although I kind of wish it came in stick form. I’m no germaphobe, but sticks just seem more sanitary.
Nivea Lip Butter is also available in Smooth Kiss, Raspberry Rose Kiss, Caramel Cream Kiss and retails for around $4.
