I hope you’ve had a nice weekend so far! We’ve been busy celebrating our sweet 15 year old. Such a fun few days full of friends and food and shopping and games and pedicures and movies and pool time and Starbucks pink drinks galore! I’m going to need a weekend to recover from this weekend. :) I think she felt the love and that was the goal so mission accomplished! We love our Addison SO much.
I can’t believe it’s the last day in May! Below are my Amazon purchases for the month. More of a few old favorites and a few new favorites I’m excited about too. (I snapped all of these pics with my phone so ignore the poor lighting!)
Such a small thing but I needed a dish scrubber for this sink by the window and found this cute bamboo dish brush.
I placed it in a decorative bowl and now something so useful doubles as decor. Bring on the dishes! Kind of crazy but they aren’t as much of a chore for me with my cute new brush. Wonder how long that feeling will last. :)
I added a few patriotic touches to the living room! I love having it up in time to remember and honor everyone who served our country on Memorial Day. Very similar to last year’s decor with my favorite banner on my mantel, but I added a few new things. (This gorgeous large tray is on sale today!)
My favorite being this decorative wood chain! I wanted something a little bigger for my terracotta bowl and this is perfect! I’ve seen very similar decorative chains for a lot more money so I was thrilled when I found this. It came with some cute smaller beads too!
Time to refill my weekly planner pad! I use the weekly pad a lot to organize my blog/IG content. It helps me to see the entire week on one page. I also like the habit tracker at the bottom. “Drink more water” and “put away clothes in closet immediately” seem to be two habits I’m always working on and have yet to nail. Someday I’ll get there! The daily plan is great for busy days that need more scheduling.
I’m THRILLED about these macrame coasters! Our glasses always sweat (is it a humidity thing!?) and it drives me crazy when water is dripping all over the table. I have a lot of pretty decorative coasters, but they don’t absorb water on the outside of the cup. These coasters are not only cute to have out on my coffee table, but they also keep my table from getting wet. Score! It’s the little things. :) (A mad game of Clue was going on behind the scenes in this picture.)
Meet my new summer obsession! I LOVE this collapsible colander! It’s thin and easy to store when you aren’t using it.
When you are using it just pull out the handles and push the bottom and wa-la! A deep colander that makes draining food a breeze. I especially love it for fruit that I want to wash and cut so it’s ready to eat.
Done and done. This is so handy! Especially for sinks that are large and deep.
A few other Amazon favorites from the month include my favorite mascara, a few travel bags (so excited for upcoming summer trips!), Kenny’s hair gel (he loves Reformer), another set of our favorite sheets (gave them to a friend for her birthday!), the items I mentioned above and the book Effortless. I’ve been listening to it on Audible. I loved Greg McKeown’s first book Essentialism (so good if you haven’t already read it!) so I thought I’d give his next book a try now that I’m back to my days of living in my car. :) I’ll let you know what I think when I’m done!
I’d love to hear about any Amazon items you’re loving! It’s always fun sharing favorites. :) Speaking of favorites.. below are a few fun things I found at Pottery Barn that are on sale since I didn’t have time to round them up before. If you missed my last post I included all of my Memorial Day weekend sale picks from favorite stores. Everything is marked down through today! I was so happy to hear that my post was helpful from some of you.
Enjoy your week everyone! I hope it’s off to a good start. :)
