If you bought it and ran out (or you’re just reading my review for the first time and decide you’ve gotta get that gloss), there’s good news. Victoria’s Secret is having a winter clearance. Originally $14, the Lip Gloss Duo in Flash is marked down to $7.99.
Abaco offers roomy handbags without the fuss. Following a true “joie de vivre” philosophy, this Parisian label unites vintage charm with modern practicality, creating a new twist on classic feminine style. Backed by extensive experience as a makeup artist, designer Raquel Achache crafts bags from supple leathers in indefinite colors (such as blue-gray). Because these subtler shades are also harder to find, she works directly with her factories to develop these custom colors, giving Abaco Laguna bags a distinct, sophisticated look. Pair this color palette with perfectly slouched silhouettes and the results manage to feel both new and familiar.
Abaco handbags aren’t easy to come by – and you’ll never find them at the ridiculously affordable prices offered by Ideeli. I’m thinking of buying another one… though I’ve amassed such a collection of purses, Mr. Spoiled Pretty might blow a gasket. Maybe we’ll keep it a secret?

My sister’s BFF turned me onto Victoria’s Secret Flawless Glow Face Bronzer, from the Bare Bronze Collection. This velvety duo-bronzer has two finishes. Use the satin matte shade to contour, the pearly powder to highlight; and blend the two shades together for a shimmering bronze glow.
The shimmery half of the duo leaves you looking sunkissed, rather than muddy – a la Lindsay “Dirty Face” Lohan.
Here’s another tip passed along from Lauren’s friend: apply the shimmery shade, in a stripe, down the middle of the nose – then continue the line from the bottom of the nose to the cupid’s bow. And ta-da – instant hotness.
Flawless Glow Face Bronzer is available in three shades: light (glow 1), light/medium (glow 2), and medium (glow 3). I’ve got a Halle Berry-esque complexion and I wear the light/medium, just to give you an idea.
On the website, Flawless Glow Face Bronzer will set you back $17.50. But my sister and I snagged ours in the Victoria’s Secret store, where they’re selling these babies for $4.37! There’s also this adorable kabuki brush (super soft brown bristles with hot pink tips) that’s on sale for $4.87.
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.

I’m in the Pacific Northwest visiting with the in-laws. I’d like to give a shout out to Steve, Laura, Matt, Maddy and baby Clara for being so warm and hospitable, and for making my first Christmas away from home so lovely.
So today, Mr. Spoiled Pretty and I braved the snow and ventured to River Park Square , a shopping center in the heart of downtown Spokane. Graham left me unattended in Nordstrom for about 10 minutes, then called me on my cell to say that he was finished his Christmas shopping. How do men do that? I guess we’ll find out tomorrow.
Realizing that he’d have to humor me before I would willingly leave the mall, Graham accompanied me to Banana Republic and a few other shops – including Chatters, a salon and beauty retail store. I was drawn to the unfamiliar store by a very recognizable pink and white dispay…
If you’re in the Spokane area, stop by Chatters for some amazing deals on T3:
