Friday Favorites: Amazon Finds

If you’re a mom, then you probably shop on Amazon way more often than you care to admit, amiright?

I’m obsessed with my Prime membership and take full advantage of it! I buy most of our necessities from Amazon, work/office supplies, I’m obsessed with Amazon Music and am going to be trying out Amazon Fresh this week too.

So, I thought I would do a fun round up of my favorite items I’ve gotten from Amazon recently.

1) Listening to the new Old Dominion album – these guys are incredible! Even if you are not a country music fan, give them a shot. They are super talented, and their lyrics are so catchy! Gracie’s favorite song is “Not Everything’s About You” – she calls it the “loud song” and knows every word.

2) The best coffee – I’m partial to Hawaiian coffee (obviously), and this one is my absolute favorite. I like it hot or iced, with a little bit of vanilla almond milk. So yummy.

3) Collagen supplement – I have been hearing such good things about adding collagen to your diet, so I decided to give this a try! It doesn’t taste or smell like anything, and it dissolves easily, so you can add it any drink you want. I usually add a scoop of this to my morning coffee. When I take it regularly, I definitely notice a difference in my skin/hair/nails.

4) Tinkle Razors – I’m getting real here. If you don’t shave your face, you are missing out. It exfoliates your skin leaving it so smooth and soft. It takes some getting used to, but my skin feels incredible. It’s one of the most effective tools I’ve used since my skin can get so dry. Just try it. It’s $6. You have nothing to lose 🙂

5) Accupressure mat – this thing will change your life! It is amazing!!! I lay on it at night and it really helps me to relax, and I sleep so much better! It’s also great if I have a headache or migraine.

6) Frownies – ok, real talk. Wrinkles. UGH. I hate them! I have what are known as “11s”, and if you have them, you know what I’m talking about. Someone recommended these to me (I mean, they are a heck of a lot cheaper than Botox!). I wear them at night 1-2 times a week, and it makes a HUGE difference!! Plus, they come in a box of 144, so it will last you for-freaking-ever.

What are your favorite Amazon finds??? I’m always looking for new things to try!

Happy Friday lovelies!

Weekend Snaps

My weekends feel especially long, since Gracie and I are off from school/work Friday-Monday, and we definitely make the most of those four days!

Friday, Gracie started her second season of dance! I’m a little unsure if she’s going to end up loving dance, but we’re going to keep going until she says otherwise!

Friday night, I hosted a “sign” workshop. These parties are becoming so popular, and they are so much fun!

Saturday morning, we woke up and went to breakfast and then checked out the planes taking off and landing. While we were admiring the planes through the fence, a nice man came up to us and asked if we wanted to check one of the planes out in person. My child was in heaven. She LOVES planes! She was thrilled to get to sit in it and pretend to “fly” it. She told us she was going to the beach – sounds good to me 🙂 He even gave her a “wing” pin to commemorate the occasion! It was so cute, and very sweet of this man to take a few minutes to make her day.

Sunday, we went to check out a local sunflower farm. I LOVE this place. The sunflowers are only in full bloom for a few days, and it seemed like everyone else had the same idea as us, but it was so worth it! They are stunning.

I really think that September might be my favorite month. It’s still warm, but not humid, there is a bit of crispness to the air and I swear, the sky is just so much bluer.

Monday, we wrapped our long weekend with a second dance class. Gracie started a Hip Hop Tumbling class, and it was adorable. She loves to jump and run and dance around, so I think this class is going to be perfect for her!

After dance, we went to two different playgrounds. Trying to soak in the nice weather while we can!

Tomorrow is back to the grind …. school for her, and work for me! I feel pretty lucky to be able to work part time and be home with her part time, it’s really the best of both worlds <3

Happy Tuesday, friends!

Thoughts for Thursday: Fall Bucket List

Now that Labor Day has come and gone, school has started, and there is a definite crispness to the air, I am SO ready for fall.

Summer is always my favorite season until September and then come November, I can’t wait for it to be summer again! If we could skip right over spring and winter (especially winter!!), I’d be so happy, haha!

Anyway, fall is my favorite time of year because I love fall clothes (sweaters, uggs, and scarves!) and fall activities. So today, I thought I would share our fall bucket list! But first, here’s a few #TBT photos from last year!

  1. Football! (Speaking of, Go Pats!!)
  2. Visit a pumpkin patch
  3. Make homemade apple cider
  4. Apple picking
  5. Watch Halloween movies
  6. Pick out halloween costumes
  7. Rake (and jump into!) a big pile of leaves
  8. Go on a hayride
