Sally Hansen® Miracle Gel™ Review & Pamper Party!


I had the opportunity to have an amazing Sally Hansen® Miracle Gel™ Pamper Party this past weekend, complete with plenty of shades to choose from, drinks, snacks, and good friends. I do have a little secret, though. I fell in love with these Sally Hansen® Miracle Gel™ polishes before this actual pamper party. I saw them in one of my local drugstores and decided to give one a chance and I was blown away by how long the polish lasted on my fingers. I am talking a full week and a half with nothing more than minor chips on the tips of my nails! I was beyond excited to be able to share the long-lasting manicure love with my friends.



My Pamper Party had a Halloween theme because I love this time of year so much. I’m a pretty low-key gal when it comes to entertaining, so of course, we lit pumpkin flavored candles, and I lined up the polishes with plenty of nail supplies for everyone to use.



We sipped on hot tea and coffee and enjoyed the simplicity of a low-key but fun Sunday night.



I loved how everyone gravitated toward their own shade preference! I was instantly attracted to the purple shade because, well, I’m a purple fanatic. The nude-brown and red shades were perfect for those who have to go to a professional setting every day.



I ended up going with Sally Hansen® Miracle Gel™ in Too Haute. I love the way this shade glows from the center of the nail. Applying this Sally Hansen® Miracle Gel™ couldn’t be easier or faster. You simply apply your nail polish like you regularly would and then apply the special Sally Hansen® Miracle Gel™ Top Coat over top. As soon as you apply that top coat, you will notice just how incredibly brilliant your nail polish will look. It adds shine and brilliance unlike any other top coat I’ve ever seen in my life. It really brings the polish color to life even more, but best of all, it seals that polish in for long-lasting wear. No LED lamps are needed and most importantly no damage to your nails whatsoever. You can remove this with regular nail polish remover when you are ready.



All of my friends remarked on how shiny their nails looked afterward. You get the same shiny result as a regular gel manicure but without having to purchase or use a lamp. It’s also super easy to take off and change your polish with regular remover, so it’s remarkably perfect for the average everyday busy woman. I have to say that this shade, Too Haute, was definitely a favorite of the bunch because of the gorgeous bright violet flash it has when it hits the light.



There is nothing quite like a great at-home manicure Pamper Party with some good friends, candles, and hot tea. Usually Sunday nights are spent missing the weekend that flew by, but this made the night extra special.

Staying Forever Young with Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream


The big 3-0 is coming in just about a month for me, so I try my best to take care of my skin and keep it youthful looking. One of the most important aspects of maintaining youthful looks is your skin. I moisturize every single day and like brushing my teeth, it’s something that I just don’t skip. I love this Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream for moisturizing my face daily. The package said that you can see visible wrinkle results from the very first day, so I was excited to try it out.



What I love about this moisturizer is that it’s fragrance-free and doesn’t irritate my skin at all. It actually feels like my skin is “drinking” the product in and I did notice results the next day when I woke up. My skin looked brighter, fresher, and overall, more healthy. I love the results I’ve been getting with this moisturizer so far, so it is a must-have for staying forever young.


How I Stay Forever Young:

  • Just like moisturizer to your skin, your body needs H20! Stay hydrated always. Your skin and your body needs plenty of water to function.
  • Eat colorful! I like to eat fruits and vegetables, and the more colors I can eat in a day, the better. Eating healthy can really make you glow from the inside out.
  • Get plenty of sleep. In today’s world, it can be hard to get enough rest, but your body needs that time to rejuvenate. Sleeping enough will really keep you looking and feeling forever young.




It’s always a wonderful compliment when people have no idea that I am approaching thirty years old. Forever young!


Olay is a worldwide leader in skin care and has been trusted by women for over 60 years, maintaining its founding philosophy: to maintain a deep understanding of women’s changing needs and to combine products that fit their needs with the latest advances in skin care technology. Regenerist was created along those lines to address women’s anti-aging needs, and millions of women have tried it and loved it, making Regenerist the #1 anti-aging moisturizer.*
