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

Help Me Find Shoes to Wear with This Dress!

max and cleo pleated dress Help Me Find Shoes to Wear with This Dress!

Many of you visit Spoiled Pretty for my beauty and fashion advice. But now it’s my turn to solicit style suggestions from you.

In a few weeks, I’m attending a friend’s wedding and this is the dress I’m wearing. It’s by Max & Cleo and I snatched it up for just $25 at Bloomingdale’s this past weekend (it’s originally $143). I concede that the dress doesn’t look like much on the model, but it looks great on me (and hides a multitude of sins) – hurrah! Anyways, I need shoes to complete the ensemble and I’m absolutely perplexed. Should I rock a pair of nude pumps? Or maybe inject a pop of color? I need your help!

To weigh in, leave your two cents in the comments section. Thanks in advance – and I’ll be sure to post what I ultimately pick.

Smooches!

It’s Essie Mochacino, which is described as “a perky gray with shimmer.” It reminds me of Mama Spoiled Pretty’s favorite shade, Essie Chinchilly – except warmer and sparkly. I bought it at CVS during a recent beauty haul (more on that later). I think I’ve found a new fave. What do you think?

woman on beach sun protection (Don’t) Burn, Baby, Burn!Hello Pretties!

A recent conversation about the importance of sun protection with my coworker got me thinking about my favorite products. First I should say that I am an American Cancer Society alum. Working there gave me a generally heightened awareness of the importance of sunscreen. However, it was my father in law’s skin cancer diagnosis last summer that really made me a passionate advocate for taking care of your body’s armor. CONTINUE READING
