Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Cover April Issue of Vogue


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

Hawaiian Tropic Shimmer Effect Lotions Giveaway!

Hawaiian+Tropic+Shimmer+Effect+Lotion+SPF+40 Hawaiian Tropic Shimmer Effect Lotions Giveaway!

Unless you want to look like Magda from There’s Something About Mary in 30 years, sunscreen is a necessity – especially in the summertime. But who actually applies it on the regular? Problem is that we ladies spend lots of time and oodles of money protecting our pretty faces, yet neglect the rest of our bodies. Sunscreen becomes an afterthought because it’s utilitarian. It’s boring. It’s not sexy. Well, until now, that is…

I just discovered a new line of products that gives new meaning to “hot fun in the summertime.” Hawaiian Tropic Shimmer Effect Lotion Sunscreens, available in SPF 20 and 40, contain prestige minerals that add a soft, subtle sheen to enhance and highlight skin tone while providing broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection. The rich and creamy formula features skin-nourishing antioxidants and Hawaiian Tropic’s signature coconut scent. The Shimmer Effect Coconut Papaya After Sun Lotion is infused with Aloe Vera and Cocoa, Shea and Mango butters, and is great for everyday use.

The shimmer that these products leave on your skin looks so good that, last week, I applied the After Sun Lotion post-shower…and I had absolutely nowhere to go. Seriously, I just sat on the sofa marveling at my shimmery skin.
Hawaiian+Tropic+Shimmer+Effect+After+Sun+Lotion+1 Hawaiian Tropic Shimmer Effect Lotions Giveaway!On a level of 1 to 10 (1 being blah, bare skin and 10 being J.Lo), the Shimmer Effect Lotions deliver a level 6 shimmer. They’re workplace and weekend appropriate. And - as if you needed one more reason to open your wallet – they’re only $8 each!
When a product blows me away, I can’t keep it to myself. Which is why I’m posting this glowing review…and hooking one Spoiled Pretty reader up! Sharing is caring, as they say. One of you will receive all three products, plus a gold Hawaiian Tropic tote bag to, er, tote your beauty booty.

Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Gold Ultra Restorative Capsules Intensive Treatment for Face and Throat

 Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Gold Ultra Restorative Capsules Intensive Treatment for Face and Throat

I have a full-time career (in addition to Spoiled Pretty) and I’m also a new mom, which means that I’m short on spare time – especially in the morning. Before I had Westley, I used to take my time and carefully apply my makeup before heading off to work. Now I’m so busy that I’ve had to seriously streamline my morning routine. On days when I’m in a rush, but need to look pulled together and polished, I even out my skin with foundation, then apply a skincare product that contains Vitamin E oil.

During the winter, when I’m abnormally dry, I pat Elizabeth Arden’s Ceramide Gold Ultra Restorative Capsules Intensive Treatment for Face and Throat on top of my foundation, all over my face for a dreamily dewy glow. It imparts a healthy radiance while protecting my skin from environmental stress and working its anti-aging magic. Now that it’s summertime, my skin is on oil overload – so, instead of applying it all over my face, I’ve been using the serum just on the bridge of my nose, my cheekbones and brows – to highlight my bone structure.

Hyperpigmentation is also a major skin issue for me, and I’ve found vitamin E to be particularly effective at diminishing my dark marks and acne scars – so this product is great for that too. Just remember to also use sunscreen so that the dark spots don’t re-appear!

The Ceramide Gold Ultra Restorative Capsules have so many benefits that they’re well worth the $68 price of admission. Plus the container looks so pretty on your vanity. Just be sure to warn your sweet tooth of a spouse to look but NOT touch…Mr. Spoiled Pretty almost ate one of the capsules, thinking it was candy!

Sedu Revolution Tourmaline Ionic Styling Iron

Sedu+Revolution+Tourmaline+Ionic+Styling+Iron Sedu Revolution Tourmaline Ionic Styling Iron

When I showed up at work last week with a halo of shiny, bouncy curls, all of my co-workers wanted to know which salon I had visited. They were all very surprised when I told them that I styled my own hair – in 10 minutes, no less. They were even more shocked when I told them I didn’t own a curling iron.

So what’s my secret? Sedu Revolution Tourmaline Ionic Styling Iron. It’s a three-in-one straightening, curling and wave making machine. The ultra-smooth, polished plates seals the hair cuticle and easily glide through hair, delivering high shine. The anti-slip edges capture all of the hairs, so that each section gets evenly straightened/waved/curled. The iron has adjustable temperature control that goes up to 450°F – and it heats up to the desired temp in less than 25 seconds – so even when I’m in a rush (which I always am these days), I never have to wait to style my hair.

What’s even better is that, in addition to basic black, it comes in…

PINK!

The Sedu Revolution Tourmaline Ionic Styling Iron retails for $160 and is available at folica.com. Kinda pricey, I know…but when you consider that this one tool is all you’ll need to style your hair (it’s great for travel!) and how well it performs, you’ll realize that it’s worth the investment. Buy it now and you’ll thank me later.
