It has been a while since I wrote a blog post . . . packing up and moving a kid into college is time-consuming, tiring and emotional. In just a few days we went from a house of 5 to a house of 3 and it’s time to adjust to having just one child home and a quiet house after a summer of lots of comings and goings of kids and many many trips to the grocery store! It will take me a few weeks for me to adjust as I get my youngest ready to start his sophomore year of high school and then just when I finally adjust they will be home for a school break – yeah!!
Amazon . . . we all love it and seriously you can find anything on Amazon! It has truly changed the way we shop – pretty much instant gratification with 2-day shipping and never having to leave the house. I buy everything from dog food to clothes to food and over course I love that I can download a book or stream a movie or tv show on a whim.
I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favorite Amazon purchases this last month:
I LOVE these yoga capris from 90 Degree By Reflex. I have two of the full length and two in the capri which is great in the warmer weather. These have a nice wide waistband (no muffin top), are super comfortable, fit perfectly and feel like the more expensive version (aka Lululemon) but at a fraction of price.
I was looking for new workout tanks to run in and these tanks were getting great reviews so I decided to try them out! I loved them so much I ordered another set of three! I wear them almost every day out on a run and they are so cute that they don’t have to be just for exercising. They come in sets of three in a variety of colors. I ordered medium because I don’t like my tanks to be short and the medium fits perfectly.
I love summer reading and without a doubt, one of my favorite books of the summer is “from the corner of the oval” by Beck Dory Stein. The author spent 5 years in the Obama administration as a stenographer but this is not a political memoir – this is a story of a young woman making unlikely friendships, getting her heart broken, learning what truly matters, and, in the process, discovering her voice all while working in the white house . . . think “Devil Wears Prada” but in the White House.
“[This] breezy page-turner is essentially Bridget Jones goes to the White House.”—The New York Times
I did not even know Crazy Rick Asians was a book before hearing about the movie. Once I heard it was an NY Times bestseller I decided to read it before seeing the movie because isn’t the book always better than the movie?! I loved the book and it’s a trilogy so I have 2 more to read (yeah!) and I am planning on seeing the movie this weekend but I have heard only great stuff!
I am obsessed with this moisturizer! It has snail mucin extract which is best known for its anti-aging and healing properties. It’s that all in one treatment that helps protects skin from free radicals, soothes skin, helps with the repair of damaged tissues and restores hydration. I love how healthy and soft my skin feels and there is a dewy glow I get with it! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!
What’s your favorite thing you recently bought on Amazon? Let’s face it Amazon is a great thing and sometimes not such a great thing as we need will power some days not to buy! 🙂
