Rub it all over legs before shaving. Your stems will be so silky smooth, you almost won’t recognize them…and the product is so hydrating, you may be able to get away without lotion, post-shave.

What were you doing ten years ago?
Ten years ago, I had just wrapped up my sophomore at Ursinus College. I remember being pretty impressed with myself for successfully making a case to drop my dreaded bio major, but keep my pre-med full scholarship (hooray…no more messing with icky Drosophila!)

mazda+rx 7 Tag...Im ItThat summer, I answered a help wanted ad in the paper, announcing an immediate opening in publishing; that opportunity turned out to be a receptionist position at a newspaper covering the exciting world of construction equipment. I got my first car that year, a 1984 Mazda RX-7 that I called Scarlett, thanks to her red leather interior.

What are five things on your to-do list today?
* Make an appointment to join new gym
* Catch up on some overdue product reviews
* Mail some giveaway prizes to winners
* Paint my nails
* Avoid outdoors as much as possible (it’s 98 degrees and humid in Philly)

funyuns1 Tag...Im ItSnacks you enjoy?
I try not to snack. But when I do, I enjoy Doritos, pretzels, popcorn, bananas, and peanuts (especially the ones still in the shells)…I like having to work for it.

I also have a weakness for Funyuns.

Places you’ve lived?
Philadelphia, PA
Glenside, PA
Collegeville, PA

What are 5 things you would do if you were a billionaire?
* Stop working
* Pay off my bills and school loans…and those of my parents and loved ones
* Travel the world and buy homes in the places I love the most
* Bribe some theater producer to let me star on Broadway
* Start my own non-profit organization in Philadelphia

Found: Makeup For Your Hair

White+Sands+Porosity Found: Makeup For Your Hair
You know how primer creates a perfect canvas for foundation application, by filling in fine lines and pores? Well, what would you say if I told you that I found a product that does the same thing for your hair? Get out, you say?!?! No, you get out!

Porosity, a leave-in spray by White Sands, is marketed as “makeup for hair.” The product acts as a concealer, filling in the blemishes found in each hair strand transforming dry, damaged locks into “illuminating, flawless hair.”

But does it work? As per the instructions, I have been lightly spraying on my towel-dried hair, after shampooing and conditioning. After blow-drying an styling my hair, I noticed a marked improvement in the appearance of my hair. It had a nice gloss to it, and my ends didn’t seem as damaged. My hair felt healthier too…softer and silkier. Porosity made my highlights more brilliant and added a lovely, light fragrance to my hair.

Porosity even improves the effectiveness and performance of chemical and other salon services. From correcting blonde tones to increasing hair color performance, Porosity can also be used to:

• Bleach Highlights: If added to the mixture, Porosity speeds up the processing time and allows the bleach to achieve optimum performance levels. This results in even tones. Immediately eliminate blotchy blondes and bleeding at the scalp since Porosity moistens the bleach while lifting.

• Color Processing: If added to your color, it enhances the tone of your color and creates ultimate shine.

• Pre-Wrap for Perms: If applied before a perm, it equalizes each strand’s porosity and achieves a consistent curl pattern from end to end. Instantly achieve incredible waves on all hair types.

Porosity is available at whitesandsproducts.com.

Kate Somerville Coming To A Store Near You

kate+somerville Kate Somerville Coming To A Store Near You
Kate Somerville’s skin care products will soon be available at a store near you. This summer, the line will be popping up at Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Henri Bendel.

kate+somerville+in+the+clinic Kate Somerville Coming To A Store Near YouNever tried Kate Somerville, but looking for a 1st product recommendation? Look no further than ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment. This clinical-strength exfoliant decongests stubborn skin and improves a blah complexion. The active fruit enzymes eliminate dead skin cells, diminish bacteria and reveal a healthy, rosy glow.

According to Kate, it’s the next best thing to visiting her Los Angeles clinic – and it’s especially effective in combating acne and discoloration.

ExfoliKate comes in the most genius jar; it dispenses out the ExfoliKate without letting air in. Which means the product stays fresh, for effective exfoliation use after use. And ExfoliKate isn’t a time or labor intensive treatment. Use 1 to 2 times per week, apply in an even layer, leave on for 20-30 seconds, and wash off. You will notice a dramatically softer and smoother skin after just one treatment! I always use ExfoliKate a few hours before a date with Mr. Spoiled Pretty or a special event.

Lise Watier Summer 2008: La Toscana

lise+watier+eye+quad+038 Lise Watier Summer 2008: La Toscana
Yesterday, Mr. Spoiled Pretty and I celebrated our one-year wedding anniversary with dinner at Barclay Prime, a “luxury boutique steakhouse” in the Rittenhouse section of Philadelphia. My dress and heels were basic black, so I decided to wear color on my eyes. Lise Watier’s new summer collection, La Toscana, provided the perfect palette to make my peepers pop!

The shadows in the Eye Quartet in Mer (Sea Turquoise, Satin Terracotta, Soft and Matte Sand, and a Rose-Brown bathed with Golden Sheen) have been baked on a ceramic tile to pay homage to Tuscany. They can be used wet or dry; dry for a light, diaphanous effect, or wet for an intense, opaque finish.

I lined the inner rims of my eyes with the Glitter Pencil in Turquoise – a smooth, pigment-rich liner.

If you’re more “turf” than “surf”, try the Terre Quartet and Glitter Pencil in Vert.

And be sure to check out La Toscana’s other offerings:

Pink Marble Blush Powder
Toscana Gloss Sticks (ultra-hydrating with an olive oil base)
Havana Dry Oil Body Glow
Havana Precious Bronzing Pearls
Havana Sun Dust Bronzing Powder
