Closest Shave Ever

leg+shave Closest Shave Ever

Pregnancy hormones have sent my hair follicles into overdrive. It’s gotten to the point where I’ve got a 5 o’clock shadow on my legs at, like, 2pm. And thanks to the ungodly heat and humidity in Philly right now, hiding my grizzly gams under long pants isn’t exactly appealing…especially considering that I’m having one long hot flash right now.

So I recently got reacquainted with my favorite scrub – KP Duty by DERMAdoctor – and it gave me the closest shave ever. Yeah, using it adds an extra few minutes to your shower routine. But it exfoliates so well that it allows your razor to cut super close so that you can go longer between shaves – which is great for me because:

a) no one actually enjoys shaving and

b) in my current condition, the act of shaving my legs is like pregnant Cirque du Soleil.

Oh, and you won’t be able to stop petting your legs because they’ll be ridiculously smooth. I know I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating. KP Duty Body Scrub runs circles around that scrub you’ve got sitting on the edge of your tub.

Salon Rouge: Blown Away By My Blowout

When it comes to beauty, few things make me happier than a professional blowout. I always feel my prettiest after someone tugs on my tresses with a round brush and blasts them with hot air. Why? Well, because I can get away with wearing my glasses, no makeup, jeans and a t-shirt – and still look totally fabulous. That’s the beauty of a blowout.

 Salon Rouge: Blown Away By My Blowout
So when Salon Rouge invited me to get my hair did over the Memorial Day holiday weekend, you know I immediately RSVP’d with a resounding “YES!!!!”

While Salon Rouge isn’t exactly in my neighborhood (it’s located in Cherry Hill, NJ), I had such a wonderful experience that I would gladly cross state lines and pay the $3 bridge toll again for such sleek and chic hair.

First, hairstylist Heather shampooed me using Bumble and bumble Tonic Shampoo, which has Tea Tree Oil and Peppermint extracts to soothe my itchy/dry scalp, balance oil, stimulate circulation. I loved the tingle! Then she shampooed again with Bumble and bumble Alojoba Shampoo – a lightweight, moisture-rich smoothie that combines Aloe Vera Gel, Jojoba Seed Oil, Cucumber and Chamomile for soft, shiny hair. She followed up the shampoo with the Alojoba Conditioner, which also smoothes and softens.

Once the conditioner was rinsed out, Heather sprayed Bumble and bumble Tonic Lotion at the roots and all over to detangle and prepare my hair for styling; this leave-in conditioner is a must-have for those with dry, coarse, porous or colored hair. While my hair was still damp, Heather squeezed a couple drops of Bumble and bumble Defrizz into her hands and distributed throughout my hands. She explained that Defrizz is the perfect prep product before a blowout because it protects against frizz, acts as a barrier to humidity and leaves hair silky and flyaway-free – but she warns not to get overzealous because a little goes a long way.

Then Heather gave me a blowout that blew me away. It took almost no time at all, and she has a very gentle technique. My bangs were almost past my nose, so I asked her to shorten and thicken them up – and she trimmed them to perfection. Seriously, I can’t remember the last time I was so happy with my bangs. Finally, she sprayed my hair with Bb.Shine before flat ironing to protect and add a polished finish.

If you’re in the Greater Philadelphia/South Jersey area, I highly recommend you pay Salon Rouge a visit…and tell Heather that Spoiled Pretty says “hi.”

The Weather Channel: Beauty Forecast

weather+conditions The Weather Channel: Beauty Forecast
Do you read Us Weekly? You know I do, seeing how celebrity obsessed I am. Anyway, they have this feature where, every week, a new celeb confesses 25 things you don’t know about them. It’s very interesting. I mean, I would never have guessed that Ludacris owns an RV and drives it himself. Or that Kristin Davis gets her best sleep on airplanes and loves Chick-fil-A. Hilary Duff says that she loves putting makeup on other people and if she weren’t an actress, she’d be a makeup artist.

Anyway, if I were to participate in one of these exercises, here’s one of the factoids you’d see on my list: I’m addicted to The Weather Channel. Every morning when I wake up, I turn to Channel 101 (Weatherscan Local from The Weather Channel). It gives me my local weather, along with a weekly forecast and some other helpful information…so I don’t have to sit through all of the national weather news anymore, waiting to hear what’s happening in my hood.

Now, I’m no weatherwoman wannabe. Watching the forecast helps me decide what outfit to wear, if I’ll need an umbrella and what hairstyle I should sport that particular day (rain, wind and humidity always dictate a ponytail). Plus I secretly dig the smooth jazz music they play on a loop. I’ve memorized all of the songs, and Mr. Spoiled Pretty often catches me rocking out and humming along to The Weather Channel tunes while I’m getting ready in the AM.

 The Weather Channel: Beauty Forecast
And just when I thought TWC couldn’t make weather any cooler, they add an awesome new feature to weather.com. Type your zip code into the Beauty Forecast to set your location and it provides Frizz Alerts, Skin Alerts, and a checklist of the items you’ll need to look and feel your best. You can also sign up to get the Beauty Forecast sent to your cell phone. The only thing that could make this better is if the text message was accompanied by my favorite smooth grooves.
