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.

burts+bees Find Your Burt On Earth Day!

This April, Burt’s Bees celebrates 40 years of Earth Day with a nod to none other than their namesake and co-founder, Burt Shavitz. Burt is no newcomer to the green arena: The beard and spirit behind the earth-friendly company participated in the first Earth Day celebration four decades agoand has been living lightly on the planet ever since. Burt has brought his love and respect for the natural world into the everyday practices of Burt’s Bees for 25 years, and now he’s encouraging New York locals to “Find Their Burt” by discovering the earth-friendly potential we all share.

On April 22nd, 2010, Burt look-alikes will take to the streets of New York, handing out samples and urging folks to be as eco-friendly as Burt in honor of the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. Passing out free “Burt” beards and hats, the Burt look-alikes will help transform the crowds into “Burts” themselves. Look for them near Rockefeller Center and in Central Park.

Burt’s Bees will also be offering people-powered natural smoothies at a “Bike Blender” station in Times Square, where visitors can stop by and enjoy a smoothie featuring natural ingredients like milk, honey, pomegranate, and cranberry (some of the same natural ingredients you’ll find in Burt’s Bees® products). The pedaling action actually powers the blender, creating a wholesome natural treat with clean energy. This event will be part of Earth Day NY.

Everyone is encouraged to continue the search for their inner Burt at home by visiting FindYourBurt.com. The website invites you into Burt’s worldand asks you to discover for yourself pieces of Burt’s simple, nature-loving persona when you “Burtify” your image using an augmented reality tool. The real-time tool modifies elements of Burt on your image based on your eco-motives. The Burt possibilities are endless and so are the ways to love the Earth. This April, visit FindYourBurt.com to learn more about how Burt’s Bees is living The Greater Good™ and discover your own inner (and outer) Burt.

WHO: Burt’s Bees and a Flock of Burt’s

WHAT: Pedal-Powered Smoothies, Burtification and More!

WHERE: New York, NY

WHEN: Thursday, April 22, 2010

Aveda Shampure Soy Wax Candle Giveaway!

 Aveda Shampure Soy Wax Candle Giveaway!
If you’re a regular reader of Spoiled Pretty, you probably remember a review I wrote a few weeks back – extolling the virtues of Aveda’s Shampure Soy Wax Candle.
It might be a stretch to call the Shampure Candle the best-smelling candle of all time – considering, well, I’ve only been on this earth to judge for 31 years. But I’m going to give it that title anyway because I dare someone to find me one more wonderfully fragrant. I triple dog dare you.
This candle smells so good, I want to petition Aveda to create a body wash, lotion, perfume and hand cream in the same scent (they already have a Shampure shampoo and conditioner – which are on my “next to try” list).

The aroma of 25 pure flower and plant essences – including certified organic lavender, petitgrain and ylang ylang – soothes the senses. And the candle, housed in a 95% recycled glass holder, burns cleanly and completely for up to 50 hours.

I’m not content to enjoy this candle solo – so, in honor of Earth Day (April 22) and Natural Woman Week, I’ve teamed up with Aveda to share two with you!
Two winners will receive Aveda’s Shampure Soy Wax Candle – and I dare them to tell my challenge my ‘best-smelling candle of all time’ theory.

mmwmd large Makeup Mondays With Mario: Blemishes Begone!

Celebrity makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic is answering your burning beauty questions!!! Every Monday, he will answer a beauty/skin care question as part of a weekly column on Spoiled Pretty, Makeup Mondays with Mario.

Hi Mario,

I have a question about concealing blemishes. How exactly do you do it? I am so confused. What concealers are the best? Do you apply the concealer before or after foundation? And what do you apply it with? Every time I try to cover up a pimple, it winds up looking really obviously and kinda cakey. If anyone knows how to create a flawless face, it’s you – so please help, Mario. Thanks a lot!

Your biggest fan,
Keisha


woman+concealer Makeup Mondays With Mario: Blemishes Begone!

Hi Keisha,

Concealing blemishes shouldn’t be so stressful. Follow these steps and you’ll have flawless skin in no time!

First, apply foundation as you would normally, followed by a cream concealer applied directly on the blemish. Choose a concealer shade that’s a bit lighter. Blend the product with your finger or damp sponge – then, with a translucent loose powder, set the blemish only. Now you can go ahead and powder the rest of the face as you would normally.

When choosing a concealer, look for one that is not oily. I really love La Mer’s concealer for blemishes. Benefit and CoverGirl make great cream concealers too.

Try this technique and I’m sure you will be a pro in no time!

Thanks for visiting Makeup Mondays with Mario.

xo,
Mario
