Kate Spade Metro Monogram Watch

Spoiled Pretty regulars – y’all know that I’m a sucker for anything monogrammed. Hell, you could put my initial on a rusty nail and I would think it was something special.

All kidding aside, I just found the newest addition to my shopping wish list – and I just had to share my discovery…because you know I can’t keep quiet when there’s cuteness involved.  (more…)

Shopbop’s Jem Collection is Truly Outrageous

jem and the hologramsAs a child of the 80’s, I got really excited when I stumbled across Shopbop’s new Jem and the Holograms Collection.

The upcoming live action movie looks like utter nonsense to a Jem OG like me. But Shopbop’s collection is a nice consolation prize.

For those of you too young to remember old school Jem, here’s a little taste of why it put Barbie and the Rockers to shame. And note how on trend Pizzaz’s makeup is – her contouring skills are on point!

VMAs 2015 Get the Look – Kim Kardashian, Rebel Wilson & FKA Twigs

Three of the hottest VMA 2015 makeups looks were created with Urban Decay Cosmetics. Kim Kardashian, Rebel Wilson and FKA Twigs rocked the matte trend. From red and pink to nude, and paired with either a smoky eye or bold brow, the matte lip brought serious #beautywithanedge to the red carpet.

MAKEUP ARTIST: Mario Dedivanovic (my friend and former Spoiled Pretty contributor)
INSPIRATION: “Kim is wearing a beautiful army green Balmain dress, with slicked-back, “wet look” hair. So we went with a simple but glowy “classic Kim K” look – a beautiful, softer version of her usual smoky eye and an understated, matte nude lip.” (more…)

Graham and Westley are Looking Sharp Thanks to Hair Cuttery

Westley Wild HairMy son Westley’s hair is as wild as he is. It’s wavy/curly, grows like a weed and he’s got this swirl pattern in front that creates one crazy cowlick. So if the person cutting his hair doesn’t know what they’re doing, he can end up looking ridiculous – which no parent wants for their child.

For a while, I was taking him to my hair stylist. But as Westley got older, my husband, Graham, took over the task. On the one hand, I was grateful to Graham for helping out – since most child grooming responsibilities land on my plate, by default. But on the other hand, Graham was taking him to a whole bunch of random barber shops/salons – so there wasn’t any consistency. Sometimes the cut/style would be good and sometimes it would be really bad (like once when he brought Westley home with a buzz cut).

So last month when Hair Cuttery contacted me about writing a review (as part of their #MyHCLook campaign), I immediately thought of Westley. Hair Cuttery sent me a $50 gift card to try their services, so I told Graham to get his hair cut too. I scheduled an appointment at a location near me with a stylist named Anna.

I didn’t accompany them to the appointment, but Graham relayed to me what a great experience they had at Hair Cuttery.
