Amazon Lately

Happy Monday, friends!!! It's been a busy month and I feel like I have the Prime bill to show it :) ha!

This "Love Handle Phone Grip" has been life changing!  And yes... that's a tad dramatic :)   I've always been a pop socket girl but LOVE that this adheres to my existing phone case.  I've loved being able to stick my finger through the strap and not having to worry about holding onto my phone.  

I also had to re-order another pack of  these glass screen protectors.  I've been through 4 or 5 of them and they do the job WELL!  In case  you haven't used them before, if you have one on your screen when you drop your phone the screen protector cracks and not your actual screen.

Mason had to be a colonial wigmaker and so  this costume and  wig made their way to our doorstep.  Mason wore the full costume to school for two days (including recess, PE, etc., etc.) and I was impressed with how well it held up.  I spot cleaned it and just packaged it all up to give to a mom for her second grader to use next year.  We've had costumes before that have fallen apart after one party so I felt like this was a good value if you are in the market for a colonial costume :)

I have these flip flops and when I saw that they came in kids sizes I knew that Griffin would LOVE to be matching.  She's getting used to flip flops but they're SO CUTE!

A few little card games made their way into Easter baskets this year including  this fun set of space match, quiz and spin cards.  Luke LOVES all things space and he's really enjoyed these.

this Monster Math card game has also been a hit...

I ordered  these intense rescue shots after a friend told me what a difference they had made in their hair.  Essentially it's a deep conditioner that's supposed to help with breakage and split ends.  I use about half an ampoule every other time I wash my hair and love how smooth my hair is after.

We've been LOVING  Tenzi and when a reader told me that  77 ways to play Tenzi would change our life I was quick to try it out.  Y'ALL!  IT'S SO FUN!!!!  We've tried so many different variations of the game and have found a few favorites.  If you love Tenzi you need to try out these cards!

Mason needed the Mouse and the Motorcycle for his last novel study of the year and it was cheaper to buy  the box set than the individual paperback.  He's LOVING The Mouse and the Motorcycle and I'm excited for him to have the other books to work through this summer.

My favorite Amazon purchase of the month was this umbrella and I want to shout from the rooftops how AWESOME it is!  It's perfect for when you're trying to get in your car, close your umbrella and somehow NOT get water all over the interior.  Essentially when you close it the water stays inside the umbrella and then water doesn't get all over the place.  All of my co-workers ordered one on the day I had it at lunch (and wasn't dripping water all over the gym floor).  It would be a GREAT gift as well! (it comes in a ton of colors/patterns if rainbow isn't your jam!)

I like to restock our "pool toy" bin at the beginning of every summer and had never seen  these "water melon" balls before.  Apparently you fill it with water and then can actually dribble and kick it under the water... I'll keep you posted on what the kids think but if you're in the market for a fun pool toy this could be it!

Last, but not least... I ordered  this fan to keep in our bedroom because I am a HOT sleeper.  I need air flow and y'all... I'm in love.  It's quiet, but powerful and has a remote which I didn't think would be as big of a deal as it actually is :)  I absolutely love it and HIGHLY recommend.

Happy MONDAY and Happy Priming, friends!!!

  1. So many things I didn't even know I needed :) .

  2. I love reading other people's Amazon purchases, I always get such good ideas! I just added that love handle to my cart! I recently did a post about what I've been Priming if you want to check it out:

  3. A quiet fan? I want a LOUD FAN! And I can't wait to hear the update on the watermelon balls. They sound like so much fun!

    1. Ha! I'll keep you posted - the idea looks cool so I'm hoping they actually work!

  4. I love the idea of the love handle! I don't have a pop socket but always go back & forth on getting one. I like this idea so much more!

  5. That watermelon ball looks so fun! I have similar screen protectors and love them. Have a terrific Tuesday!
    I wrote about my recent Amazon finds here --> Tanya - The Other Side of the Road

  6. My tip for keeping your phone in tip top shape and your screen from breaking? A heavy duty iPhone Lifeproof case! I have had all of our family use one for the last 8 or so years and none of our phones have ever cracked or broken. Depending on use after 2-4 years they tend to wear a little (more aesthetic than anything), but you won’t go through them as fast as that glass!
    I have dropped my phone probably hundreds of times and it’s unscratched and going strong! I won’t take a new phone out of a box without knowing that I have a life proof case for it!

    1. I tried one of those - but didn't love the screen cover. Glad it works well for you!

  7. What phone case do you use? I tried to click on the link on your IG story but Amazon never opened. It looked pretty!

    1. Oh no! It's the glitter bomb case by Bando. You can get it on Zappos :)
