Good day, everyone. I hope that all of you had a wonderful weekend!
It’s Monday, and you know what that means…time to announce the winners of Spoiled Pretty’s latest giveaway. I received scores of emails, begging me to have mercy on your haggard hands and feet. I feel for you…I really do. So without further delay, the twelve lucky winners of the One Step Manicure & Pedicure giveaway are:
They have won a 16 oz jar of One Step Manicure & Pedicure in Sugar Cookie, plus a Four-Piece Gift Collection (includes 4 oz jar of One-Step Lemon Manicure, .30 oz Beeswax Moisturizer Cuticle Stick, 2.5oz Surgeon’s Skin Secret Moisturizing Stick, and 8 oz tube of 25% Beeswax Cream).
Big thanks to Surgeon’s Skin Secret for sponsoring this contest. And I appreciate all of you for participating. Please stop by later, when I will reveal the deets on the next fantabulous giveaway!
Happy Father’s Day, everyone! For the past week, you’ve been sending me the most heartwarming emails and pictures – telling me what you love most about your dad, or what makes your spouse such a wonderful father. I was really touched, and appreciate you sharing your stories with me.
The winner of the Clarisonic Giveaway is Rebecca Buffington. Here is what she had to say about her husband:
I could tell you so many things that I love about my husband. I could tell you how kind, loving and giving he is or how he has rushed in burning buildings to get people out alive. I could tell you how he gave up being a volunteer firefighter/EMT after 8 years so he could work more hours when I went on disability for my Crohn’s Disease, or how he carried me in his arms everywhere I went the entire last month of my pregnancy when my Crohn’s caused my arthritis to become so bad that I couldn’t walk. I could tell you how I’ve watched him patiently teach our daughter to swim or how intensely he listens to her while she reads her little books to him. I could even tell you how he made his way through the entire crowd at Disney World with our daughter on his shoulders just so she could watch the High School Musical parade.
There are just so many things I love about my wonderful husband, but there is one reason I love him the most. I love him because of his love for others. His love for others is what makes him do all the wonderful, selfless things that he does. In my eyes, my husband is the best father to our 6-year-old little girl, and the best husband there ever was.
As the winner of the giveaway, Rebecca has won a “graphite gray” Clarisonic Skin Care System. She will love that Clarisonic’s oscillating brush clears pores of dirt, oil, and residual makeup – so that the ingredients in skincare products are more effectively absorbed. Her hubby will love how using the Clarisonic to apply shaving lubricant ensures a closer shave with reduced razor irritation.
Thanks to everyone who entered this contest!

Hurry…the contest closes at midnight tonight.
Enjoy your day, everyone!
When I popped by my parents’ house today, I was warmly greeted by their housekeeper, Ruth, whom I haven’t seen in a while. “Marriage certainly agrees with you. You’re positively glowing,” she said.
Marriage to Mr. Spoiled Pretty is bliss…but I have to admit that MAC, not my man, is most likely responsible for my radiant skin.
MAC’s Volcanic Ash Exfoliator, from the Future Earth collection is made of natural volcanic ash and sugar crystals. When I twisted the cap off of the jar, the oily, mineral-rich scrub kinda reminded me of Primordial soup.
It doesn’t look like something you’d want to smear all over your face, but with its promises of softer, smoother, clearer and less-oily skin, I did just that. Not too cute, I know…but wait until you see your skin after you wash it off. Mwah!
The Prep + Prime Microfine Lip Refinisher is another product from the Future Earth collection that does double duty. This dual-sided lip stick exfoliates to scrub away scaly skin, and conditions lackluster lips. Pucker up!
