Before you start to think this is any type of advertisement or endorsement for Amazon, let me confess that I am not a die-hard. I have subscribed to the Prime program on and off through the years depending on how helpful/ financially beneficial it seemed for my family in any given season. But I am currently in an “on” season and have found “Prime” to be a relatively universal language. If you aren’t a fan of the “Zon”, I ask that you reserve those feelings for your own blog or social media account. I simply felt that with Christmas right around the corner, it might be fun to share some of my favorite things that are easily accessible to everyone – whether or not you might choose to get them online. (In the interest of full disclosure, if you click on my link to purchase the product or anything else, I will receive a few cents at no additional cost to you to help offset the expenses of running this website. And thank you very much.)
To start, my current obsession is this Bible study aid. It looks like the throwback four color pen you used to get excited about in elementary school, but 3 of the four colors are highlighters (albeit thin ones) for underlining and one is a black pen. All four cooperate nicely with flimsy Bible pages and won’t bleed through. Loving it!
The Bible Study Pen – Carded $2.99
True confession, I have not actually used the next product because I am still using up a much more expensive, similar product. But a nurse at the hospital whose lashes were to die for told me this is what she uses. If it can produce even close to the same results as the products out there that cost 3 times as much, I’m here for it.
Nutra Luxe Lash MD, 3.0ml – $43.85
The next product I bought on the endorsement of my best friend Patsy. We both sit through all day tournaments and do some traveling for the sports our children love. And someone is ALWAYS running out of phone battery. This charger has a long battery life, charges relatively quickly and can accommodate up to 3 devices at once! The solar powered aspect comes in handier for Pats who attends regular baseball practices and tournaments outside, than it does for me sitting in temperature controlled gyms for volleyball (God bless my daughter for choosing an indoor sport). But I still love it and have taken to carrying it all the time in my oversized mom purse. I have not tried the little fan that came with it, but if I were outside at a baseball tournament, I might!
Power Bank Solar Charger – 24000 mAh – $39.99
Also on Patsy’s advice (What? She’s my fave!), I got these short charging cords to go with it that can just stay plugged into it all the time.
VOKOO Short Lightening Cables – 5 pk – $9.99
I ordered this book for a gift. I have already devoured it and think all my girlfriends should too. It is from my absolute favorite non-fiction author and it’s about friendship. These precious and funny stories will have you texting or calling your girls immediately for a GNO. If you haven’t read it, you should. But buy extra copies to give to your friends that are extra!
Nobody’s Cuter Than You – Paperback – $14.92
OK, this next thing may not be as handy to you as it is a glimpse into my life. If you don’t already use kitchen shears, let me enlighten you. I have an entire counter-top crock filled with scissors we only use on food and food packaging. They work soooo much better than a fork and knife to cut everything from pizza to raw chicken. Since I have an 18 year old who often needs very grown up food cut up into toddler size bites for safety, I often longed for my kitchen shears when out at restaurants. Until I found these. They are small, portable and slip into a cover for safety. I keep them in my oversized mom purse all the time and wish for my shears no more. I’m sure they work well on things besides pizza and chicken tenders, too! And you get all 3 pairs!
While we are sort-of on the subject of food, I love this healthy pita bread and can’t always find it at my grocery store. It’s low calorie, low carb, high fiber and still tastes like bread! I use this mystical unicorn for Gyro’s, sandwich wraps and breakfast tacos. And I love knowing I have a back-up location to get it.
And last, I love this easy to wash and wear dress. I know the style is a little summery, but the colors are fall-ish and the price is right. Heck, if you live in the south like I do, you probably have several more weeks you could wear it! If you think, however, that you can order it but style it on the shoulder instead of off, you would be wrong. One sleeve is shorter than the other, forcing you to wear it as the model or look crooked. Don’t ask me how I know.
