While I love shopping local when I can, like all busy moms, saving time and money is necessary, and Amazon Prime is my friend. I've been finding some great and more affordable options on Amazon lately, not to mention it's one-stop shopping, no dragging kids around town to multiple stores. I've created an Amazon storefront where I try to link all my favorites. If you're an Amazon fan too, or are interested in what I've been buying, check it out.
Here are my favorite Amazon finds from this month:
1.Ocean Compass Ceramic Knobs (12 pack) - $29.99
While I'd love a complete bathroom makeover for our quintessential early 90s style (blue tile everywhere) bathroom, that's not in the current budget. So in the meantime, I grabbed a paintbrush and painted the wood vanity white (not the best paint job, but it was cheap) and grabbed these cute knobs on Amazon. They fit with our nautical theme and help me like this bathroom for the time being.
2. L'Oreal True Match Lumi Glowtion - $8.99
For the most part I've overhauled my skin care and makeup routine to use cleaner products, like Beautycounter, but I'd heard great things about this Glowtion and was looking for a quick and affordable skin highlighter/illuminator. I've been putting a tiny drop over my Dew Skin Tinted Moisturizrer and have to admit I love the glow and it feels hydrating on my skin. I got both the fair and light colors.
3. TINJ Blue Light Blocking Glasses - $16.99
I have been getting a fair amount of headaches. I do a lot of work on my laptop so I decided to try blue light blocking glasses to see if that would help. Hard to tell if it's the weather or the glasses, but I do think these glasses have been helpful. They come in a variety of frames and are actually pretty cute (cuter on my 9 year old).
4. BTFBM Women Camouflage Print Sweatshirt - $19.99
I picked up this cute lightweight sweatshirt before we headed off on vacation. I was in search of layers to wear with my favorite leggings and this was a great find. Perfect for a day on the road, (so comfortable) but also cute enough to wear running errands around town.
5. COCOSHIP Women's Mesh Striped High Waist Bikini - $25.99
This is another great find I ordered for our recent trip to Florida. I'm a huge fan of high waisted suits and this one is one of my favorites so far. I wasn't sure what to expect at this price point, but this cute suit exceeded my expectations. Not only is it adorable but it's got great bum and tummy coverage and I put it to the test chasing and boogie boarding with the boys at the beach.
6. SUNGAIT Vintage Round Sunglasses - $16.99
I've historically been a sunglass snob, spending more than I care to admit on my shades. I finally realized that with the phase of life I'm in, it just doesn't make sense to spend $$ on sunglasses. Too many times they're dropped off my head or found their way to my kids hands. I've been hearing good things about options on Amazon and I picked these ones because of the cute style and polarized lenses (with blue eyes and days spent on the water, this is a requirement for me). I am shocked how much I loves these glasses, I wore them all vacation and every remotely sunny day since. I have to admit, I think they are lighter and more comfortable than expensive ones I've bough in the past.
