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

It’s that time of year again. Time to bite the bullet and bare some skin. Now that the weather is getting warmer, you can’t get away with a perfunctory shave. You know, the one where you sloppily run the razor over your legs – missing whole patches of skin; you shave just enough so that you don’t offend your man, or resemble a Wooly Mammoth. Well, now that hemlines are getting shorter and long sleeves give way to tanks, you need to invest a little more thought, time and energy into your method of hair removal.

Have I got the razor for you. You absolutely must try Venus Embrace, Gillette’s new shaving system – with five blades surrounded by a ‘protective ribbon of moisture.’

venus+embrace+3 Gillette Venus Embrace Giveaway!
The pivoting head allows the blades to stay in constant contact with the skin, even around nick-prone areas like knees and ankles. The soft grip handle provides increased control in the shower, and the razor comes with this super cool ‘ShowerPod’ that suctions to the tile and conveniently stores the razor and extra blades.

A lot of information, I realize…but here’s the bottom line: right now, I’m proud to say that my armpits haven’t been this smooth or hair-free since before I hit puberty. I’m amazed.

satin+care+avocado Gillette Venus Embrace Giveaway!I am so excited by the Venus Embrace that I want to share the smoothness with all of you. So this week, 15 lucky readers will win a Venus Embrace Shaving System, plus Satin Care Alluring Avocado Shave Gel (which is intensely moisturizing and has a light, fresh scent)!

To enter, send an email to spoiledprettycontests@gmail.com. Be sure to include your full name. The subject line should read “Venus Embrace Giveaway.” The contest ends at midnight (EST) on Sunday, June 8th. Winners will be chosen at random from among the entrants. On Monday, June 9th, 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. & Canadian residents only.

Good luck!

 Grooming Guru To Visit DCTony Sosnick, the grooming guru behind Anthony Logistics for Men, is coming to Washington, DC on Friday, November 16th to share his shaving expertise and give skin consultations at the Blue Mercury store in Dupont Circle.

Grooming Gifts for the Holidays – With holiday season approaching, subtle ways the ladies can be a positive influence without offending.

How to Winter-ize Your Skin Routine – Tips on switching over everything from your moisturizer and general routine from the hot humidity of summer to the cold and dry days of winter.

5 Steps to the Perfect Shave – From the temperature of the water to the direction of your blade, what every guy needs to know.

Shaving Tips for Girls, from a Grooming Guru – Just because shorts and miniskirts have gone into hibernation doesn’t mean your razor should follow suit; Tony will share his expertise on the steps to get a super smooth shave.

The Dupont Circle Blue Mercury store is located at 1619 Connecticut Avenue NW. For more information about this event, call 202.462.1300.
