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

An Egg-Cellent Contest: PedEgg Giveaway!

pedegg An Egg Cellent Contest: PedEgg Giveaway!
If you own a TV and haven’t been living under a rock, you’ve likely seen an infomercial for the PedEgg, an egg-shaped foot file that gives you the perfect pedicure. I’m a sucker for a good infomercial, especially ones hocking beauty-related gadgets. So when I saw the PedEgg in action, I had to get me one so that I could report back to you.

Now that I’ve tried it, I can safely say that the PedEgg goes on a short list of as-seen-on-TV products that deliver on claims (also on that list is the Ronco Rotisserie – just ask Mama Spoiled Pretty).

PedEgg is the essential summer beauty product because it quickly removes calluses and dead skin so you can proudly bare your soles in flip flops and strappy sandals. The egg shape is ergonomically designed to fit perfectly into the palm of your hand for easy and convenient use. And best of all, PedEgg is designed to collect all the skin “shavings” in a convenient storage compartment allowing you to use it anywhere with no mess. Even if your tootsies aren’t tore-up, you’d be amazed at the amount of “shavings” collected in the compartment after you use it. It’s fascinating and oddly satisfying.. I’m so impressed by this product that I thought it would make for a grate giveaway. Grate…get it? Anyway…

This week, three lucky winners will win a PedEgg of their very own.

To enter, send an email to spoiledprettycontests@gmail.com. Be sure to include your full name. The subject line should read “PedEgg Giveaway.” The contest ends at midnight (EST) on Sunday, August 3rd. Three winners will be chosen at random from among the entrants. On Monday, August 4th, 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 only.

Good luck!

Ugg?

Picture it…it’s January in Jersey and your toes are looking jacked up. What to do? You could get a pedicure, but afterwards, you risk ruining your perfect polish by putting your socks and shoes back on. So what’s the solution? You could take up residence in the nail salon until your toenails are completely dry (tip: bring a book, it could be a while), or brave the freezing cold and winds in flip flops.

Now, there’s a third option. A few years ago, three sisters longed for a solution to the age-old problem of how to enjoy their favorite spa service in winter – and not freeze their tootsies off. Bootie Pies is their brainchild.

 Ugg?Bootie Pies are suede boots have a patent leather toe that flips up when you get your toes painted, keeping the rest of your foot toasty and warm. They are currently offered in four colors, and come in women’s whole sizes 5-11.

Bootie Pies have been featured on the TODAY Show, in In Touch Magazine, and in the 2007 Grammy Celebrity Gift Basket . They have been embraced by celebrities, including Mary J. Blige, Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Hudson, Fergie, The Pussycat Dolls, and Trish McEvoy.

Bootie Pies seem to have a lot of fans. Are you one? Would you pay $128 for a pair?
