OMG I Just Bought…

OMG+I+Just+Bought OMG I Just Bought...

I don’t know about you, but when I go shopping and find something really awesome, I can’t wait to tell everyone I know because a) I want others to be as impressed with my shopping prowess as I am and b) I want my friends to purchase that item too – so they can share in my retail euphoria. When someone compliments something I’m wearing, even though I know “Thank you” would suffice, I launch into a soliloquy – rattling off the designer, where I bought it, how much I paid and the coupon I used (I’m a coupon crazy nut).

If you’re like me and love to spill the deets on your shopping feats, here’s a website to add to your Favorites list…

At OMG I just bought… you confess your most recent purchases for a chance to win weekly prizes from your favorite stores. How fun is that?

I just posted about my recent fedora purchase at Banana Republic and about the super cute flats I scored this past weekend at DSW. Go me!

Beauty Tips for a Jerseylicious Summer!

jerseylicious Beauty Tips for a Jerseylicious Summer!

Hairstylists Tracy DiMarco and Anthony Lombardi, stars of The Style Network’s hit Jerseylicious, share their top 10 summer beauty tips with Spoiled Pretty readers…

tracy+jerseylicious Beauty Tips for a Jerseylicious Summer!

Tracy says:

1. “Condition: The sun makes your hair dry and dead. So while you’re laying out, put some leave-in conditioner or use a treatment in your hair to prevent damage.”

2. “A tan is a must have! But no tan is worth ruining your skin. Make sure you throw on sunscreen even if it’s a low number sunscreen like 4! Just don’t put baby oil on!”

3. “Get yourself a Maxi dress. It can come in handy as a cover up for your bathing suit or could be cute for dinner right from the beach/pool.”

4. “Summer is great for hats. Either a big floppy hat to block the sun or a cute straw fedora to match your sundress.”

5. “Make-up is not necessary for the beach. But a bare face isn’t right either. So put on some mascara on top and bottom lashes, it will brighten up your eyes! Never know when you’ll run into a cutie on the beach!”

anthony+jerseylicious Beauty Tips for a Jerseylicious Summer!

Anthony advice:

1. “Add some summer highlights – doesn’t have to be a lot – just a few to give a sun-kissed glow.”

2. “Get an anti-frizz treatment. Summer humidity can cause a very bad hair day and GKhair or Bio Ionic Kerasmooth can be lifesavers.”

3. “When out in the sun, put 1 pint of Lakme Sun Care treatment in a spray bottle to 2 pints of water, and keep spraying and coming your hair all day. It helps with sun damage.”

4. “If you’re a guy and you’re bald out in the sun, wear a sunscreen on your head with a SPF of at least 30.”

5. “Ponytails are timeless classics.”

40% Off at Banana Republic

banana+republic+fedora 40% Off at Banana Republic

For a few weeks, I was eyeing up a fedora at Banana Republic. While Mr. Spoiled Pretty and I were shopping there one day and I was waiting for him to pay for his khaki shorts, I perused the racks and tried on some hats. I always thought fedoras were a little pretentious in an “I’m trying hard to look effortlessly hip” kind of way – so I was shocked by how hard I fell for this hat. But I wasn’t crushing on its $45 price tag (I’m cheap).

So I left the hat in the store – and that bastard haunted my dreams for weeks – until I returned to the store and adopted it. In fact, I bought two different styles (the ones pictured) because I was equally smitten and couldn’t make a decision to save my life (I’m a Libra, so this happens quite often). Lucky for me, my co-worker had given me a coupon for 30% off – so my purchase wasn’t such a big blow to my wallet. But to be honest, I wear these fedoras so often that even if I had paid full price, it would have been worth it. They up the cool factor of almost any outfit – and I get at least one compliment (from friends and strangers on the street) every time I wear them.

The reason why I’m telling you all this is because Banana Republic is having a “Power Lunch” sale today. For three hours, you can get 40% off your full-priced purchase – in stores and online (enter promo code BRPOWER at checkout). So if you’ve been eyeing up anything at Banana, now’s your time to pounce.

Nude Attitude: Zoya Touch Collection

Zoya Touch nude nail polish launch RGB Nude Attitude: Zoya Touch Collection

I’m a buff nail buff, for many reasons. First, like a pair of nude pumps, nude nails elongate and slims the fingers. And if you’re prone to chips, they’re less obvious than if you’re wearing a more pigmented polish. But one issue I have with most nudes is their transparency. It irks me to no end when I have to paint on layer after layer to achieve an opaque finish. Usually, the finished product ends up looking thick, if you know what I mean. Or all of those layers take eons to dry which increases, tenfold, the probability of me smudging my polish.

Either this is a common dilemma or my friends at Zoya somehow read my mind – because they just launched a collection of full-coverage nude polishes designed to coordinate with every skin tone based on yellow, red or blue undertones and kissed with a hint of metallic to make them ultra wearable.

The Touch Collection includes:

zoya+touch Nude Attitude: Zoya Touch Collection

Minka – latte beige cream with a metallic kiss
Shay – desert rose sand beige cream with a metallic kiss
Pandora – mauve beige cream with a metallic kiss (I’m wearing a Pandora pedi right this sec)

 

Like Zoya’s other 300 shades, the Touch Collection polishes are also formaldehyde, toluene, dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and camphor free, and vegan-friendly.

The polishes can be purchased separately for $8 or as a trio for $24 at zoya.com.
