Spoiled Pretty family

Lise Watier Summer 2008: La Toscana


Yesterday, Mr. Spoiled Pretty and I celebrated our one-year wedding anniversary with dinner at Barclay Prime, a “luxury boutique steakhouse” in the Rittenhouse section of Philadelphia. My dress and heels were basic black, so I decided to wear color on my eyes. Lise Watier’s new summer collection, La Toscana, provided the perfect palette to make my peepers pop!


The shadows in the Eye Quartet in Mer (Sea Turquoise, Satin Terracotta, Soft and Matte Sand, and a Rose-Brown bathed with Golden Sheen) have been baked on a ceramic tile to pay homage to Tuscany. They can be used wet or dry; dry for a light, diaphanous effect, or wet for an intense, opaque finish.

I lined the inner rims of my eyes with the Glitter Pencil in Turquoise – a smooth, pigment-rich liner.

If you’re more “turf” than “surf”, try the Terre Quartet and Glitter Pencil in Vert.

And be sure to check out La Toscana’s other offerings:

Pink Marble Blush Powder
Toscana Gloss Sticks (ultra-hydrating with an olive oil base)
Havana Dry Oil Body Glow
Havana Precious Bronzing Pearls
Havana Sun Dust Bronzing Powder

It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia


Greetings from Philly! It’s a beautiful day in my neighborhood. In fact, we Philadelphians have enjoyed a string of gorgeous days this holiday weekend. Today, Mr. Spoiled Pretty and I took advantage of the magnificent weather and walked down to the Philadelphia Museum of Art and took in some culture. We were hoping to check out the Frida Kahlo exhibit; unfortunately, we were a week too late.

After meandering around the museum for a few hours, we stopped by Whole Foods for some groceries – Mr. Spoiled Pretty is cooking one of his specialties, steak fajitas. Yum! Now that we’re back home, I just had to take a pic of the chic shades that have been protecting my peepers all day long.

Oakley Betray sunglasses are a perfect marriage of sport and style. Frames are available in five different colors (Black-Red, Cork, Lavender Tortoise, Sable, Tortoise Cream), and lenses come in six tints (Black Grey Gradient, Bronze, Black Gradient, Warm Grey, Dark Bronze, Bronze Polarized) that are simulated on the website…pretty darn cool.

The lenses filter out 100% of nasty UVA, UVB, and UVC rays. And the lens curvature protects delicate skin around the eyes from the damaging ultraviolet rays. So these shades aren’t just a stylish accessory, they’re also a beauty necessity.

My fajitas are calling so I have to run. Enjoy the rest of your day and we’ll chat again soon.

You’re friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Daneen 🙂
