It is time to share some more Amazon finds! I have some great finds this month, and one major fail. Linking up with Tanya, let’s do this!
Caldrea Rosewater Driftwood – This is the BEST smelling cleaning spray I have ever used. I like to use cleaner ingredient products, and this fits the bill. It smells so amazing, and the scent lingers for awhile after you cleaned the counters….it makes me clean them more often just for the smell. It reminds me of a luxury hotel. I know that sounds weird, but just go with it. The packaging is pretty, and the spray is perfection….a really nice mist. A must try!
Sprinkler – We love Melissa & Doug products. They just tend to be made better than some other toy brands. This sprinkler is so cute, and a lot of fun when you have it hooked up to the hose! I see us getting a lot of use out of it this summer, and more!
The Happiness Project One-Sentence Journal for Mothers – I am not a journal keeper, nor am I good with things like baby books, memory books, etc. If they require some creativity and upkeep….it is hard for me. This however, has space to record a sentence a day for 5 years. I can do that! Especially when I leave it on my desk with a pen. I am in my home office every single day and see this sitting out and have done very well with writing something little I want to remember about each day with Zoe. Whether it was a smores party, a fun board game we played, something funny that she said, an activity we got to do. I LOVE this!!!! Everything is set up for me, all I have to do is open and write a few words. I highly recommend this to every mom out there. I hope Zoe goes back and reads it one day and has fond memories of the little every day things.
Slip Shorts – I wanted to wear something under dresses that wasn’t restrictive, helped with rubbing thighs and was seamless. You get a three pack, and they are long enough to be comfortable without sticking out under my above the knee dresses. I liked that they came up pretty high and smoothed without sucking you in too tight and making you miserable in the heat. I do want some that are more girdle like as well, but these are great for loose fitting dresses.
Ice Cream Machine – We have been wanting to make some homemade ice cream for awhile. I looked into several different machines, and I decided I didn’t want anything you had to buy ice and salt for. I wanted it to be simple. This one was reasonably priced, it is actually really cute!!! (it comes in several colors), and you don’t need a ton of set up to make the ice cream. You just freeze the bowl a day in advance and it takes about 15-20 minutes for the machine to do its thing when you are ready to make ice cream! It wasn’t too loud, and it was super easy to clean.
Ice Cream Storage – I didn’t think about storing our leftovers, and immediately ordered these for the future! I love that you can write and erase what kinds are in it.
Beckham Hotel Collection Pillows – I have had some terrible luck with pillows lately. They are too big and firm, not full enough, causing neck problems, can’t sleep, etc. These pillows were on a few different home related accounts recommendations and they have great reviews so I figured I would try them out. I have had them about a month or so….and they are the best that I have tried so far. They have a coupon you can add right now.
Comfy Princesses – I am still collecting the comfy princesses for Zoe to put aside for her birthday/Christmas. She has 2 of them currently, and I think I have gotten all of them but one now for her collection? They seem to be phased out at stores, you rarely see them. Target only carries 2 in stores, and Walmart only has them online now. On Amazon, several say only “x” amount left. We made the mistake of not getting all the petite dolls for her last year when she was getting into them, and now she is obsessed for looking for the last two that we weren’t able to find before they quit making them. Her doll collection brings her HOURS and HOURS of entertainment…so I don’t mind her obsession with them and tend to enable her obsessiveness haha.
Massager – So many people have raved about this massager, and Chris had some back pain recently…so I thought it would be a fun little Father’s Day surprise. Since we share an Amazon account, Lindsay was sweet enough to offer to get it for me with her account. It is great to keep in our blanket basket in the living room for when the need arises.
And I have one major fail for you…..
Lume Lavender Sage Deodorant – I have tried so many natural deodorants. Some of them had me fooled into working for a little bit, until they didn’t. And when they quit? THEY QUIT! I was going to order BeautyCounter, but was skeptical when I noticed that the for the most part, the only people who actually talk about it our BC consultants. Laura asked me if I had tried Lume before and I said I hadn’t, and so she ordered it. I had a little bit more to go on my Dove deodorant and decided to let her test first. She said it held up through her workout, so I figured why not. She ordered a different scent than me. And that was my mistake. I thought lavender would be safe? It was not. This smelt so sour and rotten. Like it was spoiled? I don’t know. I wore it two days and I couldn’t stand it anymore. It actually did work…but the smell is so awful I would just rather not.
