I am linking up today with Tanya for her Prime Purchases link up. Once a month we share recent Amazon purchases and I love this! I find Amazon overwhelming, so I love to see what others buy.
For the month of August, I thought I would have to buy lots of stuff for back to school for me and for the boys for back to the dorm. Turns out, I really didn’t need much because my school has a nice supply closet for us and the boys took a trip to Target and spent about $120 between them and were fine with the rest of the dorm stuff they had from freshman year. That is the nice thing about college, most of the dorm expenses come freshman year. They are really low maintenance, too.
I bought a mask chain and I cannot live without it! I never liked setting my mask down on my desk or on another surface last year. I keep my mask around my neck during my planning when I’m alone and during lunch. Love it!
I bought this top for my sister for her August 13th birthday.
And, I bought her this headband.
She said she loves them both!
I am really liking my new purse and I use it for everywhere that isn’t school – concerts, shopping, etc. It has a large pocket that I wear facing out. The other side had a large black label that I cut. I feel like this purse is a major fall staple. I love the cognac color and the ability to change straps is so fun. You need one!
This is the replacement strap I bought and I already had a camo one.
We have some local boutiques that sell these and the replacement straps. I may go in and look at the designs they have. This would make a great gift for someone!
I feel pretty good buying any Umgee brand items off of Amazon. It is a brand sold in many of our boutiques and the price point is a little higher for Amazon stuff, which honestly, in my opinion, translates to higher quality. This dress is a little short on me so I am going to try it with leggings or jeans. If that doesn’t work I will return it. But, I love the style and pattern.
Why did I wait so long to buy this? I never knew I could feel this way about a laundry detergent! I started with the tiny but cute $18 size. I am using the clear laundry pods (learned my lesson about the blue ones – they stained some of my stuff) and I add in a cap full of the Diva scent. My mudroom smells amazing, my house smells amazing, my clothing and towels smell amazing. I am a big fan!
Where has this been all of my life? I had been using the I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter spray, but this is so much better. It legit tastes like theater popcorn. I love popcorn and use my kernels in the paper bag method. Super easy and way cheaper! I top it with this spray and a bit of salt.
And, another food in my effort to eat healthier. I boil these noodles and don’t use the seasoning pack that comes with. The noodles are delish and made from millet and brown rice. They are zero points for me.
And, I get nervous when I run low on my fave hairspray. It just smells perfect for me and works for my hair texture. I have never been this devoted to a product!
Have you bought any of these products? What have you been “priming” lately?

I absolutely cannot believe that bag – it is the VERY same as the Social Threads bag and $30 less! What a win. You have me practically convinced I need that Tyler laundry wash!
Wow! I thought the Social Threads prices were steep.
You DO need the laundry wash. It is sooooo good! I wish I could have a perfume in that scent.
Heading to check out that popcorn spray and those noodles right now!
I think both are pretty great products and I will be ordering them again, so that is big for me!
I love the dress and the purse – so stylish! You’re right – the second year of dorm life was much less expensive. Thanks for linking up!
Thank you so much!
The second year is much better!
Thank you for providing the link up! I love it!
I love those Ramen noodles. I make lo mein with them. I think ours came from Costco.

Yes! Costco has a 12 with no seasonings so I will get it there from now on!
That dress is awesome. I may have to check it out. Purse is a total win over the Social Threads one and way better price point. I am going to buy some of the popcorn butter. I love microwave popcorn but Taylor gave some kernels and I am making it your way now. Perfect! That Tyler wash is MY FAVORITE. I need to buy some for the beach house too. The last few things I primed was a shoe bench for my home gym (Tony took it to work to have one of his employees put it together for me!) I hate putting things together. That amazon skirt is olive green that I LOVE, a phone holder for my peloton. Yes I did. LOL and my glorious peanut butter chocolate premier protein shakes!
