With two young kids at home, I’m always tending to someone else! Between diaper changes, tantrums, spills and other daily happenings with a 2-year-old and 4-year-old, I often find very little time for myself. However, when I do get time to decompress and relax, I always try to focus on doing little things that make me happy!
Making Time for Mommy
Here are some of the things I love to do when I get some mommy-time!
1. Light a candle! I’m a huge believer in the power of scent, and I love candles that are seasonal! So this time of year, I’m digging pumpkin or vanilla flavored candles! The flickering of the fire, along with the beautiful scent, really relaxes me!
2. Read an interesting magazine! Between the kids, the new house, this blog, and other responsibilities, I’m often on-the-go all day long! So when I get a chance to rest, I love to put my feet up and enjoy a good magazine. I often read home decor or gourmet food magazines- they inspire me!
3. Drink a yummy beverage! I love making an iced chai latte or pumpkin-spiced coffee at home and just sipping it in the garden. I love that I can personalize my homemade drinks according to my taste (how sweet I want it) and mood (whether I prefer cold or hot)!
4. Pamper myself! I love taking some time to do my manicure. I recently discovered imPRESS Manicure, and I wanted to share with you all why I’m loving their products! It’s so simple to apply- simply peel off the backing and press on! Easy peasy! Also, there is no drying time, which is something I totally appreciate, since it means I can get right back to playing with my kids! The shine is so beautiful and bright… just like a professional gel manicure! And the UltraHold technology keeps nails on for a very long time! Oh, and they’re totally affordable- only $7.99 at Walgreens! Here are the two packs I tested out!
Pretty colors, right? Their cool PSA (Pressure Sensitive Adhesive) technology means that your natural nail will not be damaged after using their product! If you don’t have time or money for a weekly professional manicure, then you have to check out imPRESS- you’ll get the same look for much, much less! I love that they have so many different designs and styles for everyone: from French manicures to glitter-tipped bright colors!

I’m loving my new nails! I’ll definitely be buying more of these!
