amazon prime day favorites.

amazon prime day starts today…it’s like the black friday of summer.

this year it’s a two day event to shop some of amazon’s favorite products at really great prices. as long as you have an amazon prime account, you’ll be all set to save!

i threw together a quick list of some of my absolute favorite amazon finds that are participating in the amazon prime day deals below.

things go quickly, so word of advice? don’t wait.

i swear by this travel makeup case. it’s light-weight, super durable, and you can’t beat the price.

need some fun earrings? check these out. so many color options to choose from and under $10!

if you need new tennis shoes, i’d highly recommend getting these adidas running shoes. they’re super comfortable, light-weight, and come in so many color/style options.

if you’re in the market for a portable charger, for the price, you can’t go wrong with this one. i buy a lot of charging products from this brand and have had zero complaints.

this might be my favorite purchase ever. if you have kids or even just for yourself, you NEED a wet brush. this is a great deal; two for the price of one.

last minute gift ideas for mother’s day.

sometimes it’s so hard to shop for those special women in our lives, and being a mom myself, what i could use more than anything on certain days is just alone time to catch up on some zzz’s or enjoy the peace and quiet. simply just offering her some of that time is honestly better than gifting her any material item sometimes.

but if you’re still wanting to give her something and haven’t done your shopping…

two words: amazon prime. it will become your best friend.

here are some favorites that i have stumbled upon and should help spark some shopping inspiration:

diffuser and essential oils

bath bombs

fresh flowers

kindle e-reader

custom jewelry

weighted blanket

hope this guide gave you some ideas of what to give your mom on her special day. and above all us, make sure you tell that woman you love her.

september favorites.

crazy to believe that september has almost come and gone already. september is easily my favorite month, and for so many reasons…the summer heat is transitioning into cool, autumn days and finally a reason to wear all my over-sized, comfy clothes.

it was a slightly busier month for me as i spent time with some friends, volunteered with work for the day of caring, and ended the month with a trip down south to visit my grandma for her birthday.

i’ve rounded up a few things that i love from this month to share with you; a few new, a few old:

joggers

joggers

where have these been all my life? they’re insanely soft and so comfortable! my husband bought me these ones from jane.com in the charcoal gray color and now I want them in every. single. color.

milk and honey

milk and honey

i’ve really enjoyed reading poetry this month, and when looking for new poets, i stumbled across rupi kaur and found her best-selling book.  i purchased it on amazon and it was perfect reading for my long road trip to missouri.

apple pencil case

Case

i carry my ipad and apple pencil with me everywhere. i wanted something slim to keep my pencil in so it didn’t get damaged being tossed in my bag. i tried this case out from amazon and am in love with it. it’s small, has multiple storage spaces, and is big enough to store my head phones in as well.

liam and company 

liam

i order a lot from jane.com, and i mean a lot. a lot. most recently i’ve been ordering a lot of my wardrobe from there and noticed that a lot of the clothes that i liked were from the same boutique…liam and co. their clothes are all super adorable, comfortable, and very affordable!

august favorites.

how is it possible that i’m posting august favorites already? i feel like july just ended and i was dreading summer coming to an end. august has been busy with preparing for my girls to start back up with school…first and fifth grade this year; my babies are getting old!

i wanted to share with all of you a few of my favorites from this month; a few new, a few old:

bath and body works foaming hand sanitizer

023865431

bath and body works came out with a new line of hand sanitizers; and these ones are foaming. i picked this one up from their new fall scent line and have found myself just using it because it smells amazing. it’s a perfect size to keep in my purse and my girls love using it as well.

rae dunn

1e6bc04fcee87e43a0f632c25eee7283--rae-dunn-canisters-kitchen-canisters

i’ve always been a huge fan of rae dunn’s pottery pieces, but much more lately since she’s come out with her new desk collection.  i’ve bought all of the one’s i own from marshalls, tjmaxx, and homegoods, but you can also find her work here.

r.h. sin poetry

48362131_000_e

i’ve always been drawn to poetry, the feelings and emotions that are put on that paper can be so relatable. lately, ive been reading a lot of pieces written by r.h. sin and have found so much comfort in them. you can purchase some of his work here.

t-sign easel

41+j8v+oXjL._AC_US160_

i lost my last easel, yes i know, dumb, but i have no idea where it went. so in the market for a new one for my craft room, i came across this one on amazon. it had great reviews, and my favorite part is that it can be converted into a table top easel.

july favorites.

july is always such a fun month for me.  lots of time in the pool, parties and byronfest, and my daughter’s birthday month.  she’s turning 10 this month and it blows my mind how fast time has gone.

i wanted to share with all of you a few of my favorites from this month; a few new, a few old:

hobonichi techo 

41PZ+wBX6GL._SX466_

i wanted to purchase a new notebook to use as an art journal.  after doing some research (yes, for a notebook…im dorky) and looking up reviews i ordered an a6 hobonichi techo weekly from jetpens.com.

i thought the same thing…what is a hobonichi? it’s a japanese daily planner with a very minimal design. the paper is super thin; which makes it not very bulky and easy to toss in my purse.  i really like the aspect of being able to customize it as well, with tons of different cover options.

jane.com

if you don’t know about jane.com yet, you should…talk about addicting. jane.com is an online market boutique that features daily deals in women’s fashion trends, home décor, and children’s clothing from different shops.

hop over there asap. you will not regret it, but your wallet might.

artist loft watercolors

71VfwJZvr6L._SY679_

i’ve been really enjoying using watercolors lately, especially within my new hobonichi that i’m using as an art journal.

when looking for a new watercolor set, i didn’t want to spend a lot of money simply because i wasn’t sure if id like using them. i settled for a cheap set and honestly, i don’t think i’ll need to ever try a different brand.

i purchased the artist loft’s brand from michael’s arts and crafts. best part, they’re only $8.99!

covergirl blast pro mascara

ba02d1d2-0c15-486d-a58b-43eaeac70ed5_1.9f895f53d738e3946739d85df81c8869

i came across this mascara on a complete accident and it has now become a favorite from this month.  we were running errands one day and i remembered that i was running low on my mascara at home.  i had to run into walgreens for a few other things and picked up this covergirl blast pro waterproof mascara.

i’ve been using it for a few weeks now and really like how full it makes my lashes look. the best part is the price: it typically ranges from $6 – $8!

 

 

 

june favorites.

june seems like it went by extremely fast.  it seems like i was just celebrating my birthday and planning out all the details for our big vacation this month.  a lot has happened this month: some of our friends got married, we spent a lot of time on the beach in virginia, and my family road tripped to washington dc.

with all the shuffle and hustle that occurred, i found a few new favorites that i’m looking forward to sharing with you:

filofax pocket domino

i’ve been really enjoing my pocket-sized planner lately, but wanted to get something more girly looking and settled on purchasing a filofax pocket domino.  i found it here on amazon and it has become a new must-have for me.  its pink (of course), soft, and super affordable.

13 reasons why 

during the week nights, my husband and i have a nightly routine.  we put the girls to bed around 8:30, make a bowl of popcorn, and then vedge on the couch while watching our shows.  we recently started 13 reasons why on netflix and can’t seem to want to turn it off at a decent hour so we’re not exhausted the next morning.

bite beauty lipstick 

i stumbled upon bite lipstick when i was sent a box of their products in the mail to test.  i was instantly drawn to the amuse bouche lipstick in the shade pepper.  the color is very neutral and goes well with just about everything.  my favorite thing about the bite beauty lipsticks is how creamy it is and how long the color lasts.

hp sprocket mobile printer

on our long road trip i planned to do a lot of journaling and memory keeping and wanted to pick up a mobile printer before.  i did a lot of research of which one had the best reviews and ended up buying the hp sprocket. i didn’t get a chance to try it out before we left , but once we were settled in and were on our way, it was the first thing i drug out. its so easy to use, very quiet, and the quality is well worth the price.
