Pre-motherhood I had a standing appointment at the nail salon every two weeks for a gel manicure and pedicure. They knew my name, didn’t mind if I brought wine along (which was usually the case) and didn’t judge my sometimes ridiculous polish choices like fuchsia pinks and black. Post-child…what is a nail salon? Although I hate to paint my nails I started to give myself at-home manicures. I’m so hard on my nails that the polish would chip within a day so I would always opt for a clear polish to make my life easier. I eventually decided to give Sally Hansen Miracle Gel a try & I love it!
Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Nail Polish
Although it doesn’t last quite as long as the gel manicures at the salon it’s a great alternative. It’s a quick two-step process to apply & doesn’t require UV lighting. My favorite colors for fall are Wine Stock (pictured) and Greyfitti. The next time you’re giving yourself an at-home manicure I definitely suggest using the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel!
I am excited to share my new favorite thing this week – the Sling Back Bag from Thirty One Gifts. As a mom constantly on the go I was sick of carrying my oversized diaper bag. The diaper bag was necessary when my son was an infant because I needed to have everything under sun with me at all times; diapers & wipes, diaper changing mat, extra set of clothes, burp clothes, bibs, formula & bottles, entertainment toys, etc. Now that he’s 16 months he doesn’t require as much ‘equipment’, so I can finally enter the world of alternative diaper bags.

I recently purchased the Sling Back Bag during a Thirty One party I hosted hoping it was the diaper bag replacement I was looking for. Not only is this bag functional with its various pockets, but it’s easy to throw over my shoulder allowing me to carry my son in one arm & groceries in the other. This is my new favorite thing!
The Sling Back Bag is more than just a diaper bag; it’s great for traveling, hiking or even running errands. It comes in 4 different colors and is priced at a reasonable $45.

I’m that impulse shopper that stores love. You think I would know better since I worked in the retail industry for 10 years, but I have such a hard time only buying what I intended while running errands. Those little displays on the aisle end caps & at the register call out to me, enticing me to buy things I didn’t know I wanted nor that I need.
This week while at Rite Aid I came across an end cap display of Wet n’ Wild cosmetics marked down 40% off. Even though I’m not a huge fan of Wet n Wild products I had to purchase something! Luckily enough I ended up buying something that I love & I’m excited to share my new favorite thing.
Wet n Wild MegaSlicks Lip Gloss
The lip gloss is originally priced at $1.99 so even without the promotion it was still a steal. For the price, I was expecting a sticky gloss that dried out my lips, but rather it does exactly what is claims to and adds mega shine, color & moisturizing luster! I picked up Raspberry Voice but cannot wait to go back for more shades. The next time you’re at the store looking for a new lip color, pick this up! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do…and if not, it’s only $1.99.
