If You Have Hair, The Wet Brush is a Must Have


For years, I have used an oversized wide-tooth comb to detangle my notoriously impossible to detangle post-shampoo hair. The amount of hair that would get caught in the teeth was somewhat alarming. But I chalked it up to the fact that I only wash my hair once a week - so maybe the hair loss really wasn't all that CONTINUE READING

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Cover April Issue of Vogue


Welp, folks, it looks like Kanye finally wore Anna Wintour down and got his baby mama a coveted Vogue cover. So the rumors were true. There was buzz a few months back that Kim would cover the fashion bible, but then everyone assumed it would be a foreign Vogue - given Anna's alleged aversion to all things Kardashian. I CONTINUE READING

thedish Dishing On The DishHave you seen The Dish on The Style Network?

Hosted by Danielle Fishel (aka Topanga from Boy Meets World), this show takes an irreverent look at the weekly mishaps and meltdowns of celebrity fashion and lifestyle.

If you’re a Spoiled Pretty regular, you’re gonna love this show. It’s like The Soup for the ladies.

The Dish is one of my new favorite guilty pleasures…along with VH1’s Glam God (hosted by tranny-esque Vivica A. Fox) and The Cho Show. Watch them while your man is in the other room, or out doing ‘man’ things.

rhythmic+gymnastics Get In Shape Girl
Are rhythmic gymnastics Olympic sports anymore? I’m feeling too lazy to do the research. But if trampoline is a sport, someone needs to bust out some balls, hoola hoops and ribbons right quick.

As a child, I remember tirelessly training for the Olympics with my Get In Shape Girl equipment. And I know I wasn’t the only one…

Kim+Kardashian Kim Kardashians Video Makeup Lesson: Part IV, Lashes and Lips!
I know that you Kim Kardashian fans have been anxiously waiting for the finale of her “Smokey Eye” video tutorial. Today, Kim and her makeup artist, Stephen Moleski, show us how to finish the look with lush lashes and kissable lips.

* Stephen recommends fake eyelashes with a clear base, because they’re more pliable.

* Cut fake lashes to desired length.

* Apply Duo Surgical Adhesive to fake lash strip and let dry until adhesive gets tacky.

* While looking down, slip on lash strip – then press false lashes into your own so they blend.

* Kim uses MAC Select/Sheer Loose Powder in NC45 as a bronzer.

* Sweep a highlighting powder under the eye.

* Remove mascara wand from tube (Kim is partial to MAC Zoom Lash) and wipe excess with a tissue to prevent clumping. Then apply to lashes.

* Line lips with a liner that closely matches your natural lip color (Kim uses MAC Lip Pencil in Stripdown), then blend.

* Fill in lips with a pale lipstick, like MAC Lipstick in Angel.

* Top off those lovely lips with a gorgeous gloss, like Kim’s fave, NARS Lip Gloss in Turkish Delight.

* Finally, sweep a little powder blush onto cheeks; Stephen uses MAC Pro Powder Blush in Shy and Cheek
