Amazon Prime Purchases - September

It's time for another round of Prime Purchases. I made more purchases than last month, but that was mostly because I did some Halloween costume shopping. And I had to get some last minute items for the gala that I attended two weeks ago.

So what did we buy this last month?

linking up with Tanya

Keratase Anti-Dandruff Shampoo

So with the changing weather, having extensions, using dry shampoo and getting older, I noticed that I was getting a bit of dandruff. Yes, that makes me feel old. I was surprised, but I guess it is common. So I bought this shampoo to use every other time I wash my hair. In between, I will use my Kerastase Blonde Absolute.

Black Leather Watch Band

I got this for the wedding that I went to in early September. I wore a black dress and wanted to wear my watch for the step count and because it is still nice looking. But I had a white silicone band and needed something classier. And this fit perfect.

Nespresso Vanilla Custard Pie Pods

This was a repurchase since I was getting close to being out at work.

Sight Word Flash Cards Levels 1 - 5

We have been working with the girls on memorizing sight words and spelling them. This box has been amazing. It says it is for Kindergarten through Third grade. They have gotten so much better with reading since we started this box.

Boob Tape

I bought this to go with the dress that I ended up returning. But I still used the flower covers with the dress that I wore to the gala.

Kerastase Blonde Absolut Conditioner

I bought this to go with the anti-dandruff shampoo. I usually get mine from Keratase, Sephora or my salon, but I didn't want to wait until I was getting my hair done. 

Boppy Cover

I bought this for a baby shower I went to back in the middle of September. They are having a boy and his nursery is adventure themed.

Swaddle Set

This was another gift that I purchased for the baby shower.

Tom's Kids Fluoride Toothpaste

This was a repurchase as my girls were getting low on their favorite toothpaste. 

Oral-B Electric Toothbrush Replacement Heads

My girls use the Oral-B electric toothbrush and it was time to get some replacement heads as they have used all the ones that their grandparents got for them when they purchased the electric toothbrushes. And my girls have the Frozen ones, so I had to get the Frozen replacement ones.

Baby Monthly Calendar Blanket

This was the final gift that I got for the baby shower. 

Nude Block Heels

I got my dress that I wore to the gala and realized that I didn't have any nude heels. I had pink which was light pink and didn't go with the dress. I also had a pair of gold glitter heels that hurt my feet and made me donate them. So I was in a scramble and bought these on Amazon and then went shopping in town to see which worked best.

Princess and Price Charming Halloween Family costumes

Our Halloween costumes.

Kids Corded Headphones

I got these for the girls since they need them for school. I had bought some like it years ago, but I can't find them anywhere, so I found these and they were on sale, so win win.

What did you purchase from Amazon in September?


  1. Those baby gifts are the cutest! You all are going to look so great in your Halloween costumes.

  2. I love those nude heels! I have a close-toe pair, but don't have anything like these. Adding them to my wish list! And I feel you on the dry scalp! I've always had super dry skin, and therefore, a dry scalp, so I've always struggled with mild dandruff. Trust me, you're not alone and it's super common. I've tried several different dandruff shampoos and my favorite is Dove Dermacare Scalp. It smells so good and it works better than any of the others I've tried. And the price point is SO good. So many of those dandruff shampoos are crazy expensive!!

    1. Oh thank you for the dandruff shampoo recommendation. I have never had this problem but my head has been itching so much lately and it sucks. Yay for adding the shoes to your wish list. I love a good pair of heels.

  3. Those heels are nice! I hardly ever wear heals but I feel like I could wear those. Your Halloween costumes are going to be so cute!

    1. I don't wear them much either, but when they have a chunkier/block heel, I can wear those more easily. And I feel like I won't break my ankle wearing them. Thank you!

  4. Some great buys. My kids use Tom's as well but the wicked cool flavor.

    1. Oh I don't think my girls have had that flavor. Or they may have, but strawberry is their favorite one.

  5. Zoe loves that toothpaste too. I started working on sight words with Zoe, very simple things. I'll have to keep those cards in mind as we progress. Love the costumes you all picked!

    1. That toothpaste is the only one my girls like, so I order it in bulk. Ha. Sight word practice is key. I wish we would have done that more last year, but now we are catching up and they are learning so much. And we make it a game too!

  6. All Tom’s products are so good! Love the heels!

  7. You just reminded me to place a MASSIVE Nespresso order, so thank you for that!

  8. Those baby items you got are super cute and make nice baby shower gifts.

    1. They were all on her registry fortunately. But they are sooo cute!

  9. That monthly calendar for a little boy is the cutest - I've never seen that before.
    I CAN NOT WAIT now to see you all for Halloween!!!!

    1. It was on my friends registry and I thought it was very cute. I can't wait for Halloween either! It will be so much fun!
