LOVED & LINKED

it’s been a while since i’ve shared some of my recent favorite buys with all of you, so why not share some now?! i’d love to know if you’ve used any of these or now plan to give them a try!

alright. don’t judge, but your girl is already getting hot flashes and this thing has so come in handy! it’s small enough to keep in my purse and the fact that it’s also a power bank is sooo convenient.

if you like a good thriller book to read, this is it. it’s perfect for a quick read and totally not what you’d expect.

i’m a sucker for a good set of press-on nails and these have been one of my go-tos lately. they’re classy, yet durable, and not over the top.

and lastly, who doesn’t love a good body product and one that boosts energy at that?! i stumbled across this line a few months ago and now have them scattered around home and even work. it smells so good and leaves you feeling energized!

costco favorites that you need in your life

costco. heard of it?

it should come as no surprise to those who know me, know that i love costco. no. more like i’m obsessed with it. i think it may be part of the mom handbook; once you step in you’re sold.

we stopped in spontaneously to visit the new local warehouse one day and jumped on the bandwagon after walking just a few of their aisles. we’ve been a member for over a year now and over that year have accumulated some favorites.

so what should you buy at costco? check out some of our favorites below:

street tacos

these were one of the very first things that we were told about when we started shopping at costco. actually the employee who sold us our membership told us that we should pick up some of these before leaving the store.

thanks miss costco employee for the recommendation because these are amazing! we typically make a trip to costco every other week and usually purchase these every time. they’re so convenient to make and the kids really enjoy them too.

if you haven’t checked out the aisle of pre-made meals at costco, i’d highly recommend it. we’ve tried a few things from there and haven’t been disappointed yet. their chicken fettucine alfredo is another one of our favorites!

vodka

this is the definition of a bargain booze. the costco brand’s kirkland vodka has earned it’s own fan club and we’re part of that. it’s just as tasty as grey goose and some even claim that it’s possible it’s the same since they’re both made in the same distillery, but at a bargain at just half the price.

king blanket

we’re a sucker for big fluffy blankets in this house and this one did not disappoint. in fact, we even went back and bought multiple. want a giant, comfy blanket for under $25? this is it.

mini frozen tacos

don’t judge me here, but okay, i’m a huge fan of quick and easy lunches and these are one of my go-tos. my favorite part? they’re perfectly cooked and crispy after being tossed in the air fryer for just a few minutes. also, you know you bought something good when every time you purchase it and go through the checkout line the cashiers always rave about them.

french onion soup

another quick and easy lunch? these. i’m a sucker for soup and french onion soup is easily one of my favorites, but such a pain to make. i read a few reviews about how delicious these were and i’d have to agree. i pop them in the microwave for just a few minutes and often add an extra slice of swiss on top.

tortilla chips

who doesn’t love a good tortilla chip? these are a staple in our house! the bag is giant and all for under $4. big families that fly through chips, these are definitely a must for you!

battery-operated candles

these were one of those random purchases after strolling through the aisles one day. probably the most random thing that we’ve purchased at costco, but they’re now one of my favorite home decor items. we have a set around our fireplace and then got more later for our bedroom.

the lights flicker like a real candle and one of my favorite purchases is that you can set them on a timer to turn on and off at the same time every day.

ramen noodles with chicken

i love a good bowl of ramen, especially with a bunch of extra veggies and meat are tossed in. i stumbled on these in the freezer section, tossed them in the cart, and have been doing so since. they take only 3 minutes in the microwave and even after, the chicken in it is still so tender. add these to your shopping list next time you’re running to costco; you won’t regret it!

do you have a costco membership? what’s your favorite thing to get there?
