It's time for another round of what I bought on Amazon Prime this year. I only participated in this link up from March and on, so that is what I am including in this post. Hopefully next year, I will have the whole year to choose from.

I buy these every couple of months because they work. They are good too. 
Natrol Melatonin Gummies

I bought this spray for the first time on Ulta as a gift, but then found it on Amazon. This is the real stuff and I got it at a great price on Amazon. Plus free shipping. I use this every morning and throughout the day to give my face a freshen up!
Mario Badescu Rosewater Spray


I bought a HD Antenna to get the local sports channels like NBC. We were not able to watch the NFL playoff games after changing to Hulu Live since local NBC wasn't supported. We got NBC, but the national channel. So I bought this and it works beautifully. Plus, we can watch the local broadcast about our Nevada Wolf Pack. We have about 29 HD channels that come in for free.

I bought this dress off a whim and it is one of my favorite Amazon clothing purchases. It has held up to many washes, many trips and it is so soft and comfy.
Daily Ritual Black Sleeveless Dress


I bought a milk frother based on a blogger recommendation. I love this blogger and usually buy from her links. I am sooooo glad that I bought this frother as I use it every single day at work. It works very well and it a great price.

I didn't know that loofa's carried so much bacteria. I am also guilty of keeping them way too long. Then I found out about silicone loofa's and I bought the two pack. One for me and one for the girls. These are amazing. Seriously, so soft, easy to clean and so much healthier.

We have given Stomp Rockets to about 5 kids this year. It is the best gift for kids. My girls love theirs too!

We bought a Leesa mattress about a year ago and it was already awful. I hated it after 6 months. I searched for a topper for a long time before settling on this one. We have had this one for about 7 months and it is still amazing. I totally missed my bed while I was in Philly and that bed was pretty comfy.

July brought Prime Day and I bought two awesome items, a Kindle and Booster Car Seats. I love this kindle and it has traveled all over the US with me. I read on it at home as well.

These booster seats have worked out very well for us. We had the Chico Keyfit Newborn Car Seats and these are just as awesome for bigger kids.

I also got this makeup brush cleaner and it works soooo well. I have never had my brushes so clean. I still have a lot of the bottle left.


I bought three items and none were huge favorites. I did like the items, but none that would make this list.


My girls needed new ballet shoes and I bought these on Amazon. They have been awesome for the girls full on ballet class. No complaints about feet hurting or being awkward.
Ruqiji Ballet Slippers for Kids


These comfy headband headphones have been a total win. My girls love them. We took them on a trip and they were also used at several of our renovation appointments to keep the girls busy. The girls love them!!!

And that's it for our year of favorite Prime purchases. What were your favorites?


  1. We got an antennae and ours doesn't work wonderfully, maybe I should try the one you got!

    1. We haven't had any issues with ours. I did a lot of research and reading on ours. Maybe try it?!

  2. I love how you included something from each month! Great round Up

    1. Thank you. I thought that was the best way to do it.

  3. I have been wondering about the kids headphones. Now only if I could get them to hook up to our van (I dont think it is possible)

    1. Do you have the regular headphone jack in your car? If so, these will work in them.

  4. I need to get that TV antenna, the flat one on my living room TV has been acting up for Saints games and it has been frustrating!

    1. I have to use mine for football games too. This one hasn't failed me yet!

  5. So you have the basic Kindle... question... I have a really old one & need to get a new one - how does that light in the front of that work - can you turn it off - does it make it too white? I hate something that is really bright. ... also, is the memory good for you so far - I see its the 4G & the others are 8... Give me all the details before my old kindle blows. I've had her for nearly 8 years so I'm not complaining :)

    1. You can turn it off, turn it down or turn it up. It is adjustable so you can read in different natural lights. Like I change it from when I am outside at the beach and I need a different light. I also change it back to when I am inside. It doesn't get too bright at all. I like it. I have about 40 books on it and I haven't had any issues with memory. I like this one way more than the one my mom has. Hers is older and this one is lighter and easy to travel with.

  6. My boy and I used to have so much fun with those Stomp Rockets!

  7. Oh my word, I have often thought about loofahs and if they get gross! I was guessing they did and meant to look it up, as far as if you should wash them, how often to replace them, etc. I am ordering those silicone ones for the family as stocking stuffers!!!! I don't know if my hubby will like switching though. Did yours do okay with it?

    1. Mine did just fine with it. Everyone was weary of them at first, but now they all love them. So soft and not as scratchy as the normal loofahs. I love these and they are worth it. Plus they aren't too expensive and you can clean them soooo much easier.

  8. I heard that to about luffa so I went back to using a washcloth, which I'm not sure is even much better. But I do know that I washed them a lot more often lol. we have that stomp rocket and the boys absolutely love it!

    1. I used a washcloth for awhile, but these are our favorite. The girls love them more than a wash cloth. The stomp rockets are the best!

  9. We love our tv makes it easier to give up cable. Thanks for linking up with Prime Purchases! Tanya - The Other Side of the Road
