Amazon Prime Purchases - April

It's time for another round of Prime Purchases. I didn't much much this last month and that seems to be the common theme when I don't have birthday gifts, Christmas or big holidays coming up.

So what did we buy this last month?

Kids Sleep Masks (2 Pack)

We have hit the stage where the girls get scared of the dark, being in their room at night and are wanting to be near us all the time. I check on the girls each night before I head to bed and I started noticing Avery was putting her pillow over her face at night. I asked her one morning why and she said because she was scared of the dark. I told her that she has her night lights, but she was still scared. So I suggested they try sleep masks. So far they work out pretty great. Now to fix the nightmares that Sutton has been having that keep her up some nights.

Powder and Bronzer Brush

I bought this brush because my powder round that I use was ruined. The girls got into my makeup one day and put on the NYX lip gloss that is meant to stay on even with a mask. They also put on mascara, bronzer and eye shadow. And they used my expensive powder round to put it on and try to take it off. I tried cleaning it, but it was ruined. So I decided against spending $16 to $20 on another round and got this brush instead. It has worked great and it is less than $8.

Iron Supplement with Vitamin C

So I had surgery back in January, and I had a follow up for it. I had to have a blood draw and it turns out my iron is really low. Like way low, so I was told an iron supplement would be beneficial to me. And my doctor said to get one with vitamin c because iron is hard to absorb and it will help. So far it has been helping and I am not as tired as I was feeling (perks of being anemic).

Tide Washing Machine Cleaner

So we all know that I normally use Affresh to cleaning my washing machine. But since following GoClean on IG, I decided to give this a try. She says Tide powder is amazing and cleans most things. So when she recommended this cleaner instead of the Affresh, I had to try it. It took awhile to get in and I just got it, so I will try it and report back.
Tom's Children's Toothpaste

This is the girls favorite toothpaste and we were out, so I got a three pack. So much easier than remembering to get it at the grocery store.

VGA adapter to HDMI cable

This is a random purchase, but I needed this adapter for work. I didn't want to rely on our IT department getting it in before we had to start back at work two days a week, so I bought one. I am so glad that I did because two weeks back in the office and they still don't have any.

Steve Madden Travel Sandal

Remember when I got these shoes in the clear color? Well, I loved them so much that I bought them in tan. I get more compliments on these (both pairs) shoes than any other shoes that I have. They are comfy, have no break in time and are fun. Plus they are on mega sale.

Mario RC Scooter

The girls had a birthday party yesterday and we needed a gift. The boy loves Super Mario, so hopefully he will enjoy the gift. And one thing I wanted to point out...this boy went to preschool with the girls and they haven't seen him other than friend gatherings once or twice since they all went to Kindergarten. Well when they all saw each other, it was like no time had passed. I just love that!

Bissell Cordless Hand Vac

So I bought a new car handheld vacuum. And while I LOVE my Shark vac for inside my house, I wanted something for on the go. As I said on Friday, a fellow IGer said amazing things about this vacuum and I knew I had to have it. It comes with a regular charger and an usb charger for charging on the go. This is a moms dream for being on the go.

So what did you purchase this last month on Amazon?

  1. Too funny, I am including a washing machine cleaner today too. Those sandals are darling. I got a tan pair of Steve Madden ones this year in the new Skylar style but I might need to get those in clear. Always love seeing your Amazon finds.

    1. I saw that and it is the one that I have used more often than not. I decided to change it up to see if this one works better. I LOVED the ones that you got. They are so cute.

    1. Ours was gross too. And we have tried Affresh, but I think the Tide ones are better. Well so far. I tried it once and it seems cleaner. The sandals are a favorite of mine and I get so many compliments when I wear them.

    1. Oh this vacuum is amazing. I used it all weekend. We had birthday parties and were constantly on the go so the girls ate in the car and the vacuum saved my car from looking so gross.

    1. It is good and so far it is helping me out. It took a bit to get my levels working again, but it makes me feel better. Now to get my iron checked again. The hand vac has been amazing. I have used it a bunch already. My inner clean freak loves it.

    1. It is a great toothpaste. My girls love it too. I hope they do as well. It sucks that they are noticing the dark and "scary" things more.

  9. Oh yes, love iron levels can really make you drag (mine was so low I had to have 2 iron supplements a day before my surgery). I love those sandals!

    1. Oh wow. I didn't know that. Mine are very low, or they were before I started these supplements. I need to get my levels checked again. And thank you. The sandals are a favorite of mine. And I get so many compliments on them.

  10. Zoe uses that toothpaste and loves it. She does NOT like crest (I think?) bubble gum one or the other one the princesses are on. Zoe is afraid of the dark as well. We have a frozen nightlight that casts a picture on her ceiling, and I have to leave the hall light on with her door open. I don't love leaving her door open at night, but she freaks out if we shut it. Hopefully those masks work for you guys!

    1. It is a great one. My kids hate Crest too. They get that at the dentist which I use for travel and they hate it. I hate leaving the doors open too. We leave them cracked, but I worry. They also have an ok to wake clock that stays on for a bit and one that projects on the ceiling all night. Plus a star one that we put on for an hour, but they wake up in the middle of the night and freak out. The masks have helped a bit.

  11. Super Mario for the win! Glad to hear your iron levels are better, and you're not feeling as tired. And how darling are those sleep masks. Hope Sutton can sleep more peacefully <3

    1. Yes. That rc scooter was a huge hit at the birthday party. And my girls also want one now. Ha. Sutton has been sleeping better and so has Avery. But they are still scared of the dark and we struggle a bit with that. The iron has definitely helped!

  12. I think I need that vacuum just for my car. Great idea.

  15. That's great the masks are working - sorry to hear one of your girls is having nightmares though!

    That handheld vac looks super handy. (Okay, I didn't mean to use the pun, but there you go haha)
