I think it is so important to stop and fill our tank as mamas. Wether that be some fresh nail polish or some time in truth, being nourished well so we can pour out for our babies and hubbies is so big. This was a new realization for me this year - how important self care really is! I believe our people deserve the very best version of us and taking the time to tend ourselves well empowers us to pour out all the more and make room for the good stuff.
Sally Hanson Miracle Gel
Raise your hand if you love pretty nails but don't have the time nor the money to go get manicure every few weeks.
Also raise your hand if you paint your nails and then get bummed that they chip two days later! gah.
Welcome to your answer! This gel polish is like getting a gel manicure but at home. They have gorgeous colors and it actually lasts! Also big perk? Its at target.
Make sure you get the black bottle of top coat to complete the manicure. I didn't realize they sold the top coat but soon learned that's what makes it stick!
Precision Hair Trimmer
So this one is a little odd...maybe awkward...but does anyone have fine hair on their chin or upper lip and tried to remove it?
I have always had bits of hair on my face that drive my bonkers haha - no girl mustache for me! The problem is, if you shave it, it will grow back dark (and there's really not enough to shave with a razor). For years I have used Nair hair removal cream, but it would burn me each time and leave a nice red upper lip for the day. Oh the looks I would get if I had to be somewhere!
My wonderful mom friend mentioned this, though, and it was a total "duh" moment when I realized all the hassle I could have bene sparing myself! This battery powered little trimmer thing takes the fine hairs right off and leaves you feeling so confident! Yay!
Tanwise Sunless Tanner
Who likes a good tan?!
The issue is: what mom has time to lay out in the sun and get brown? Also, tanning beds gross me out a little so sunless tanning is where its at! During shorts season, I put this on and it lasts three days, showering and all. It goes on super quick post-shower, doesn't have a bad smell, and gives a perfect color.
The trick? Exfoliate well before applying, use latex gloves so it doesn't stain your hands, work in circular motion, and moisturize with coconut oil before use so it goes on smoothly. BAM.
