There's everything from sophisticated nail polish colors and soft mineral blush to lip glaze palettes and pencil sets to create an alluring smoky eye. Oh, and CONTINUE READING
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
Hey Guys! As you all know the weather lately has been terrible and most of us have been getting all kinds of horrible colds and the flu, as a result. This is very personal for me because I work in retail and it seems like I get one disease after the other with all of my customers constantly sneezing CONTINUE READING

Last month, LaLicious sent me one of their Seasonal Travel Sets to review – and they were absolutely perfect for my recent summer sojourns to Miami and Maine.
Each Seasonal Travel Set includes four 2 oz mini LaLicious products (Whipped Soap, Sugar Soufflé Scrub, Body Butter, Body Oil) in a travel friendly bag. And with TSA-approved sizes, you’ll fly through the airport security line. Available in 8 irresistible scents (I have/love Tahitian Flower – a soft, tropical gardenia), the sets are available until September 15.

A few weekends ago, I attended Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim 2012 in Miami, as a correspondent for Mary Kay – and they put me up in a gorgeous room at Fashion Week headquarters, The Raleigh Hotel.
I had the most fabulous time in South Beach, getting acquainted with the Coyne PR beauty girls and the other blogger correspondents, Annie Tomlin from BellaSugar.com and Lizzie Dunlap from RealBeauty.com.
In between makeovers, delish dinners and runway shows, I was also able to schedule some mojito-sipping downtime with one of my BFFs, Aimee.
If you’re ever in Miami, I highly recommend the Raleigh Hotel. The rooms, service and ambiance were incredible – and the picturesque pool was just the cherry on top.
I had the time of my life…and I owe it all to you, Mary Kay!

I’ve been craving Mojitos all summer, so I stocked up in Miami!
Modeling the Carmen Marc Valvo retro swimsuit I bought at Rue La La and the Dolce Vita wedges I bought at Ideeli.
The Cojito (coconut rum mojito) at Ola Miami is the yummiest cocktail I’ve ever tasted!
This cotton candy dessert at Barton G was, seriously, almost 3 feet tall.
As a beauty blogger who is slightly obsessed with the Kardashian sisters, I receive a ton of emails – asking about Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian’s style, favorite beauty products and makeup application secrets. It’s one of the reasons why I enlisted Kim’s makeup artist, Mario Dedivanovic, to contribute a weekly column to Spoiled Pretty – Makeup Mondays With Mario.
But the most popular question I receive is where people can purchase an acrylic makeup organizer like the one featured on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
Not only have I found one, but this week, I’m giving three away!
One grand prize winner will receive the MD4X Acrylic Lucite Clear Makeup Organizer With Drawers from Mar Display. It is a must-have storage system for makeup artists and beauty junkies alike – and looks super stylish on your vanity. Its four clear drawers and flip top makes it easy to store, find and access all of your favorite beauty products. The MD4X model measures 12.00 x 14.00 x 15.5″ and retails for $215.
Two lucky runners-up will receive the BellaBoxx, a glitterrific flip-top, two drawer premium acrylic organizer. The Bella Boxx is the perfect size (12″ wide x 12″ deep x 14″ high) to comfortably fit any vanity or dresser, while providing ample storage for makeup, brushes, nail polish, perfume or jewelry. The BellaBoxx retails for $89.95.
To enter, leave a comment below. Post your email, Twitter handle (make sure you’re following @spoiledpretty so I can DM you) or some other way for me to get in touch if you win. And be sure to indicate what color BellaBoxx you prefer (visit BellaBoxx.com for color options), in case you are chosen as a runner up. Contest open to U.S. residents only.
Contest ends on Friday, July 29 at 5pm ET. I’ll announce the winner then. Good luck!
My wedding is in a month and I’m looking for a foundation base that would look perfect in photos. I know I should avoid products with SPF, but is there any specific product recommendation I could get, Mario? It would be much appreciated!!!
I recommend applying this foundation with Sigma’s Synthetic Face Kit. The kit comes with three face brushes that can be used with liquid or powder products. Buff the Diorskin Sculpt makeup onto your skin using the flat top Kabuki brush for a flawless looking, high definition effect. Good luck and best wishes on your big day!
Thanks for visiting Makeup Mondays with Mario!
Got a question for Mario? Email your makeup and skin care queries to email@example.com, and check back next Monday to read Mario’s expert advice!
I don’t care what anyone says about Uggs being ugly. I adore them. They are some of the most comfortable footwear I’ve ever worn (I own three pairs of boots and a pair of slippers). Seriously, when you wear them, it feels like you’re walking on clouds.
The downside is that Uggs are expensive. But don’t be tempted by shearling-lined charlatans. Nothing is as comfy cozy as the real deal. Your best bet is to patiently wait ’til Uggs go on sale – and then make your move.
That’s exactly what I plan to do on Monday, July 25 at 11am…because HauteLook is having an Uggs sale! I probably shouldn’t tell you this because I don’t want too much shopping competition. But you know I can’t keep a secret from my Spoiled Pretty sisters. So whether you’re an Uggs newbie looking to make your first purchase or a seasoned vet adding to your collection, I suggest you set an alarm for this sale – because I predict the stock will go quickly.
And if you’re not already a member of HauteLook, I highly suggest that you join right now (membership is free) – so you’re signed up and ready to shop when the sale kicks off on Monday.
Congrats to the winner of the Bed Head Foxy Curls Styling Iron Giveaway – C and C girl.
She has won the Bed Head Foxy Curls 1-1/4 Inch Tourmaline Ceramic Conical Styling Iron, which creates softer, shinier, natural looking curls and waves – without frizz. The iron heats up in just 30 seconds, and the temperature dial has multiple heat settings that can be adjusted to suit your hair texture. The cool tip lets you get a grip, without fear of burning your fingers. And forgetful gals will appreciate the iron’s automatic shutoff feature – which powers down after an hour.
Many thanks to Bed Head for sponoring this contest. And stay tuned for Spoiled Pretty’s next giveaway, which will be revealed very soon!
