Check out this Philosophy Best Sellers Collection Kit that HauteLook has on sale right now. The 6-piece set is packed with travel size essentials that everyone woman must-have on-the-go. You can snatch it up now for just $20 (it’s a $50 value).
I love every sing one of these products! For any of you readers who have never tried Philosophy products before, this would be a great buy. And for the hard-core Philosophy fans out there, this would be a smart purchase too – just save the bottles for your next trip.
The kit includes a pink cosmetic bag and the following Philosophy products:

Philosophy MD Exfoliating Wash, Travel Size (1.0 fl. oz.): Designed to effectively cleanse and replenish skin, while providing resurfacing benefits
I love me some Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencils. The Urban Decay website bills these babies as “the best eye pencils ever, ever, ever.” And it’s truth…every word of it. If you don’t own at least one of these liners by now, what are you doing? Are you just reading Spoiled Pretty for the hell of it? I’m trying to help you, girls! In these trying economic times, a woman needs an eyeliner that she can depend on. And this one, my friends, is as good as it gets. If I had to pick my favorite beauty product of all time (which is so hard…it’s like picking your favorite child), Urban Decay’s eyeliners are it.
Anyways, Urban Decay’s 10 vintage shades are now on sale at urbandecay.com and Sephora for $9.50. They’re originally $19.00, ladies – so this is HUGE. Whether you’re an Urban Decay newbie or longtime fan, this is prime time to stock up. All of the colors are fabulous and fun, but if you only have one Alexander Hamilton to spend, I highly recommend Deviant, a bold blue. Apply it to the waterline and wait for the compliments to come rolling in.
I just had to share how much I adore this Susana Monaco Flutter Tube Dress I just bought from Shopbop.com. I’m usually very hesitant to buy clothing online because I’m short and curvy and I can’t be assured that something will look right until I try it on. And even when I do buy clothes off the Internet, they’re almost always petite clothes because the proportions on regular clothes make me look like I got dressed in front of a funhouse mirror. But I decided to take a chance on this dress because a) I don’t have any cute going out dresses in my closet, b) this dress is so cute it’s ridiculous and c) it’s on sale for 50% off.
Well, I’m glad I decided to live dangerously because the dress fits amazing and is the most flattering thing I’ve bought in a long time. The double-jersey knit hugs without being restrictive. Plus since it’s not thin, you don’t have to worry about it showing any lumps and bumps. The peplum on top of the skirt plays hide-and-seek with the areas I’m most self conscious about, and makes this body-con dress more wearable for those of us without model bodies. And the color just screams summer, right?
This dress is so hot, I’m building an entire girls’ night around it.
If you’re as enamored with this dress as I am, act quick…it’s going fast. But be sure to check out Susana Monaco’s other dresses Shopbop.com – she’s no one hit wonder.

If you’re in the market for some new boots, I highly suggest you check out Naturalizer. Yes, Naturalizer.
I know that the brand name evokes old lady, orthapedic-looking shoes, but Naturalizer’s shoe and boots styles are anything but. The designs are classic (with a nod to current trends), versatile and super comfy.
My beloved Naturalizer Arness Boots
Last winter, I bought a pair of black riding boots and I’ve worn them at least 3 or 4 times a week through the spring. Now that it’s getting colder, they again have become my go-to footwear for fall. They look chic paired with a dress or skirt, and also with skinny jeans or leggings tucked in.
And for those of you with “athletic” calves or who wear a narrow or wide width shoe, you’re in luck because Naturalizer offers all of these options. Personally, I have wide feet and need a wide shaft boot – and I can tell you that it’s damn near impossible to find a cute boot that fits. But Naturalizer sells several.
I’m so happy with my black riding boots that I’m going to buy a brown pair…and my decision comes at the perfect time because they’re having a sale! Now through November 25, 2012, take 20% off your order at Naturalizer.com using promo code UWINT32A.
The “Juletta” boot (above) has been marked down to a very reasonable $179.99 – but with the coupon, it’s an even better $143.99!
Update: Use coupon code UWINT29A for 20% off all boots, plus an extra 15% and free shipping!
I love cute jewelry. Like the kind that makes other women say, “OMG…that is soooooooo cute! Where did you get that?” Yeah, that kind. But I hate spending a lot of money on jewelry. Which is why I am so obsessed with BaubleBar.
They sell bracelets, rings, necklaces and earrings that are unique and luxe looking, but won’t break the bank. BaubleBar even has personalized pieces and does fabulous collaborations with stylemakers like Nina Garcia.
