Today is a super fun link up with my friend Tanya at The Other Side of the Road blog.
We all love Amazon! We all love Prime! How did we exist before Amazon? I simply don’t remember. While I love to shop locally, shop consignment, use the library, etc., I really do love me some Amazon. It’s like magic. It’s like Disney for adults. It will never cease to amaze me what can be found on Amazon. True story: a few years ago I ordered Mexican jumping beans off of Amazon to show my students. Isn’t that both weird and wonderful?
However, Amazon can be really overwhelming. I love to take others’ recommendations and especially other bloggers’ I trust that I know are not just trying to earn a buck. Not that there is anything wrong with affiliate links, but readers can tell when a recommendation is genuine, I think.
I have a lot to show you this time around because there were just things I needed that I had been putting off on buying until the school year was over. And, sometimes Amazon can save you money because time is money and because if you were to enter a store, you could make unnecessary impulse purchases.
Here we go.
First of all, I really wanted a white boho chic summer dress. I ordered one but it just wasn’t what I wanted. I knew I would need this slip to go under it. So, I’m keeping the slip but still haven’t found the dress. I’m thinking I can wear this under other dresses as well.
My next purchase was because of Kellyann. I knew I needed a shot glass because one of my hobbies I guess you could say is coming up with cocktails at home. I’m very happy with my new set of two, Kellyann!
My grocery store, Kroger, stopped carrying my all time favorite hairspray! My bff and I swear that Kroger stops carrying our favorite products on purpose because we can both name several items that they took away from us! I usually paid just over $5 for the hairspray at Kroger, so this price on a two pack was great. For the price, you cannot beat the holding power, combability, and smell. I have probably used 10 bottles now. I have never been that faithful to a hair product.
Again, Kroger took this away from me. This is a little pricier at just under $10 and I’m now on my 3rd bottle in a bit over a year. This stuff helps my highlights last longer. I take my shower at night, spray some in, and don’t even heat treat my hair until the next day and it works. I am impressed by all the John Frieda blonde products, actually, but this is all that I currently use.
I still love these shoes! They are more stable than a flip flop and so comfy for running errands. At $17, you don’t have much to lose, unless you’re like my sister and think they look hideous!
I wanted a big mini muffin tin to make mini muffins (duh!) but also some apps like tarts with wonton wrappers, crescent roll dough, etc. I only had a silicone 12 count and don’t like baking with that. So, I have upgraded and I have already made some mini muffins for my boys!
This is how I decided to jump into the jumper trend and I think it will work into fall, to be honest. I like the material, I like the tie, I like the sleeve length, and I like the price.
I guess I didn’t buy too much, but don’t tell my husband that I currently have 16 things in my cart. Just window shopping…
Thank you to Tanya for this fun link up!
