My October Amazon Purchases

You can’t tell by my purchases but October officially kicks off the holiday season for me! Coler weather, yummy treats, kids who get dressed up as super freaky characters…don’t even ask me what Dash was supposed to be. It just freaked me out!

But we did get a few things last month that are new. So check out our new favorites below and see what we re-stocked and what we just couldn’t do without!


1) WHITE SWEAT JOGGER – if you’re looking to create your own set of tie-dye sweats, these are the ones we’ve grabbed a few times now and what Emery recently used to make her Halloween costume.

2) WHITE FULL-ZIP HOODIE – matching top

3) ROSE QUARTZ MERKABA CRYSTAL – I got this to help lower my anxiety while I drive. So far it’s been super helpful to keep me calm and to save my cuticles in the process!

4) GOLD BIRKENSTOCK SANDAL – picked these up for St. George and I love the color!

5) ANKER USB-C COMPUTER CHARGER – If you’ve ever left home without your computer charger or an extra battery, you know my pain! Get a charger that work on your computer AND your phone!

6) MATTRESS PEE PAD – the best purchase if you’ve got children who still wet the bed at night!

It’s a great day when you can do shop for your teenage daughter’s entire birthday wishlist on Amazon! In fact, the only thing here that I didn’t snag there is the Dr. Martins at the top of the list! But everything else was from there and she loves everything she got!

1) DR MARTENS VOSS SANDALS: Emery has been dying to get these sandals so I picked these up for family pictures and gifted them to her as part of her birthday! We got the leopard but they also have zebra and giraffe. But keep in mind that you need to order based on euro sizing. Emery is an eight and we had to get her a six.

2) CRAYOLA GLOBBLES: Yes, it’s a toy for children. And my 14 yr old child was BEGGING for these things.

3) GRANDE LASH-LIFT HEATED LASH CURLER: Emery is obsessed with having perfectly curled lashes at all times. You know we tried this lash lift kit at home and it worked really well! But at 14, it’s hard to sit still for that long.

4) SET OF 10 RECTANGULAR GLASSES: I should know by now that if the Kardashians say that they’re a thing again, it’s a thing again. Hence this 10 pack of rectangular sunglasses. Emery is all about sunglasses and probably buys a new pair at every gas station we stop at!

5) SUNGLASS ORGANIZER & STORAGE: Yes, this is the same exact one Braun bought for his collection and I gotta admit, it’s pretty smart! And it keeps their sunglasses all in one place and from getting scratched. You could even assign a row to each person in the family and hang in a communal spot!

6) SLIPPERS: We love slippers in this house and encourage them! It keeps our kids from walking around in their shoes. And Amazon has become my go-to for cute, comfy, and inexpensive slippers!

7) PEACE SIGN RING: What’s old is new again, right? Funny how each age group seems to go through the phase of wanting peace signs and bead curtains (yes, she has those, too) everywhere!

8) SUNGLASS TRAVEL CASE: This case might be the best thing she got for her birthday! It is perfect for traveling and even storing her sunglasses. This case doesn’t crumple and will protect your sunglasses from getting smashed!

9) LEATHER JEWELRY ORGANIZER: A jewelry organizer is one of the best purchases I have ever made and so I picked one up for Emery for her birthday. They’re leather and come in 3 colors!

10) COW-PRINT TOTE: My girls are both loving tote bags as of late. I get it! They’re easy to get your books in and out of, aren’t as formal as a purse, and can be customized with patches, stickers, and marker!

11) JEWEL STICKERS: It’s funny how some things don’t change. These sticker charms are perfect for notebooks, phone covers, and the occasional earring!

We’ve been going through beading supplies so fast that we’ve had to restock a COUPLE of times this month just to keep up with demand!

1) ALPHABET LETTER BEADS: This is a great kit if you’re needing the full alphabet for your lanyards or bracelets.

2) ELASTIC CORD: Depending on what you’re making, you’re going to need string or cord. I like using the elastic cord for lanyards and bracelets!

3) PLASTIC HEART BEADS: These are super cute and lightweight! We also picked up these STARS in the same material and colors.

4) INDIVIDUAL LETTER BEADS: When you’re doing as many projects and pieces as my girls, it’s the vowels that you run out of super fast! We found that we could buy packs of individual letters like ‘A‘ and ‘E‘.

5) SPECIAL BEAD KITS: We found bead kits that either had specific colorways or finishes on the beads. Here are some of the ones we picked up: Irridescent | Earth Tones | Frosted Pastels

6) GOLD STARS: these are super fun and are a great addition to dress up any lanyard! We also picked up the GOLD HEARTS as well.

7) COLORFUL HEART LETTER BEADS: These are 10 times more fun than the plain black and white!

8) BEAD CEMENT: Keep your beads and crimpers in place with this simple cement!

9) CYLINDRICAL GLASS PONY BEADS: These are a little bit bigger at 7mm and are colorful and fun to work with.

10) RAINBOW PONY BEAD KIT: This kit has all your basic colors as well as some fun metallics!

11) LANYARD CLIPS: We bought these in GOLD and SILVER to match whatever beads we were putting on. These attach your lanyard to your mask!
