Because Shaving is the Pits: DERMAdoctor Gorilla Warfare Antiperspirant Giveaway!


My hair grows like a weed. Unfortunately, the hair of which I speak is not on my head. My legs and underarms give my razor a workout. If I shave in the morning, by afternoon, I've got stubble. And forget about skipping days...unless I want to look like Sasquatch. Getting rid of the hair is not only expensive (I CONTINUE READING

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: BlowPro Perfect Shower Cap


The shower and my chemically-straightened hair are frenemies. Every seventh day when I wash my hair, they get along great in a shampoo Shangri-la. But the rest of the week, I employ a shower cap to keep the steam from undoing the silky straightness. I have been wearing shower caps since I was a child, and I’ve tried them CONTINUE READING

Get Catty With Wildfox Catfarer Sunglasses


I've been searching for some cat eye sunnies for forever. On a whim, I bought these Wildfox Catfarer Sunglasses from Shopbop - hoping that they wouldn't look too cartoonish. Even though I was afraid they'd be too large, I'm digging the oversized frames. They make a statement without overwhelming my face. And the cat eye shape is subtle, so it's not CONTINUE READING

Peep My Polish: Revlon Top Speed Nail Enamel in Superstitious


Now that I have two kids - and the youngest being 6 weeks old - I needed to get better acquainted with quick-dry nail polish options. I hardly have time to do anything, let alone a DIY - so I needed to find some lacquers that fit my new lifestyle. Yesterday, while going my grocery shopping, I picked up Revlon CONTINUE READING

Tatcha, I'm So Glad I Gotcha


I'm home on maternity leave, so I spend an inordinate amount of time nursing my daughter, burping her and changing her diapers - all the while, watching hours of QVC. I don't know what it is, but I am mesmerized by QVC demonstrations. If I'm channel surfing and I happen to land on QVC, it's damn near impossible for CONTINUE READING

Spoiled Pretty Featured in Woman’s World Magazine!

Woman%2527s+World+Magazine+Spoiled+Pretty+Best+Candles Spoiled Pretty Featured in Womans World Magazine!

If you pick up the latest issue of Woman’s World (Paula Deen is the cover girl) and turn to page 42…BAM! There I am!

Seriously, though…I am beyond flattered that the magazine asked me to participate in their You Deserve The Best column, which features product picks from “in-the-know experts.”

Women’s World asked me to name the best candles, and they included a quote about one of my faves from Yankee Candle. Click the image above to read why I love it so.

Here are some other luminaries that love:

Shampure Soy Wax Candle by Aveda: It might be a stretch to call Aveda’s Shampure Candle the best-smelling candle of all time, considering that I’ve only been on this earth to judge for 32 years. But I’m going to give it that title anyway because I dare someone to find me one more wonderfully fragrant. Its calming aroma of 25 pure flower and plant essences, which reminds me of a trip to the spa, helps me to unwind at the end of the day. This candle smells so good, I want to petition Aveda to create a body wash, lotion, perfume and deodorant in the same scent (they already have a Shampure shampoo and conditioner). It’s that good!

Godiva Home Fragrance Collection: Last year, Godiva unveiled a new way for chocoholics, like me, to get their fix. The Godiva Home Fragrance Collection included five scented candles (Milk Chocolate Truffle, Raspberry Ganache, White Chocolate Magnolia, Peppermint Bark, Black Almond Truffle) of deep chocolate-colored wax infused with cocoa butter. Unfortunately, these mouth-watering candles were limited-edition and they don’t really sell them anymore…not really sure why, considering they are AMAZING! Anyway, I recently did some Internet sleuthing and located some at bathandbodyworks.com (they just sold out there, but you can also purchase at Amazon.com). They make the perfect holiday gift, so I snatched up a few – and I’m giving them to the wonderful teachers at Westley’s daycare to thank them for taking such great care of my baby.

Bougie Candle: I recently discovered Bougie Candle, a wonderful collection of seven candles made with all natural soy wax that is free of any genetically modified materials, dyes, herbicides or pesticides. And because they are scented with essential oils, the candles provide aromatherapeutic benefits. My favorite is Nurture, a blend of vanilla and ylang ylang that has calming properties.

Do you have a favorite candle? I’m always on the hunt to try new things, so share your faves in the comments section below.

Winning bids will be donated directly to Doctors Without Borders.

BeautyBloggers.org is the brainchild of fellow blogger and swatch queen, Karla Sugar. “We’re raising money for Doctors Without Borders because women are always disproportionately affected in any disaster. This organization is committed to bringing quality medical care to people in crisis, regardless of race, religion, or political affiliation. They treat rape victims in Papua New Guinea; they make sure women don’t die in childbirth in Pakistan; they helped flood victims in Mexico and earthquake victims in Haiti. They work in 65 countries around the world, and your donation will make an immediate impact.”
