Top Links: May

Ahhh, I am so LATE with May’s top links! I made a commitment to get this out at the first of every month and I’m only 1 month in and I failed miserably. You guys forgive me, right?

Oh man, good thing there’s always next month Haha!

Seriously, I feel like the month of May was like giving birth. It was awful, painful, uncomfortable, and so loooong. But as soon as it was over, I forgot how bad it was and wished my kids had 4 more weeks of school.

I can’t be the only mom that thinks that right? Or am I just few that admit it out loud?

Other than that, things have been pretty awesome around here! I just got back from the most major of major lady boss retreats. Jordan Page of Fun, Cheap, or Free hosted 20 influencers at her dude ranch for a few days and my brain is on serious overload right now – I’ll definitely be sharing some nuggets on one of my Friday influencer 101 blog posts.

Until then, here are your top links for May! And as always, these are Tara Tested & Approved!

KINDLE & AUDIBLE

I shared my love of everything Kindle and Audible in a blog post this month and a ton of me told me you feel the same! I shared about all of the different Kindle options, how to get free audiobooks from your local library, and how to score a free audiobook when you buy the digital copy. And I promise you, this is one tech purchase you’re going to want to snag for yourself (it’s also one of the most inexpensive ones!)

The Workout Shoes I Wear Nonstop

I get bombarded with questions about these shoes every time I wear them! These are the Adidas Ultra Boosts and they have quickly become my favorite! I’ve got these grey ones in the picture above that are now 40% off and the best price I’ve seen! I also have these ones I wore in my most recent Fabletics stories and I love these orange leopard print ones that were released a few months ago! These shoes have tons of support and are easily my most requested shoe!

Beach Essentials you NEED for Summer

Consider this your excuse to go have the perfect beach vacation.  You’ll have a blanket that is impervious to sand, the ultimate waterproof speaker, and my secret weapon for getting sand off that will only set you back a few bucks! You can find my entire list of beach essentials HERE.

DRESS PICKS UNDER $40

Walmart, you’ve seduced me. I can no longer ignore your great prices, quality threads, and the massive amount of brands to pick from. First, it was the grocery delivery (sneaky) and now it’s everything else. I take back everything I’ve ever said. You have my heart…or at least the contents of my wallet.

The Uniform

You know the outfit you wear on repeat? The one you gravitate towards time after time and ALWAYS looks good when nothing else does? This was that outfit in May. And you guys loved it as much as I did! So here it is again, all linked up!

Ok, so now that I’ve got the big ones out of the way, check out the other top links from May that you guys loved!

BRAUN'S FAVORITE T-SHIRT
NEXT LEVEL
Your man can finally wear matching shirts with 9,000 other guys of wives who bought this shirt when I originally posted it! There about 4,000 more of you who tried but the dang thing sold out. Well, good news, the shirt that broke the internet faster than a Kardashian childbirth is BACK! This shirt is officially restocked! Snag one before these bad boys sell out again. *Hot man bod not included*

NO YELLOW SHAMPOO
FANOLA
I pass on brass. Brass hardware and jewelry? Sign me right up. Brassy, orangey hair? That’s a hard no! My hair hates me and no matter how ashy we go or what my stylist tries, after a few washes my dang porous hair rebels and starts to pull brassy tones! This purple shampoo is the antidote to all my hair woes. I love this stuff! I’ve used it for a few years and it never fails me. A little goes a long way, so much so that I’ve been using the same bottle for over 2 years! Highly recommend if you deal with hair that insists on going brassy on ya.

SHORT SLEEVE CAMP SHIRT
A.N.A
How do you know when you really love a shirt? When you own 1 or 2 versions of it? Or when you've purchased every possible print? I might have a problem...and apparently, you guys do too because over 200 of you purchased this shirt in the month of May! This amazing shirt is inexpensive and #3 on the list!

PLASTIC BAG SEALER CLIPS
AMAZON
There are two types of people in this world: those who will fall for the "Hey you've got something on your shirt!" prank and those who will not. Let's just say I fall for it every dang time. Apparently, I'm a little bit of a sucker, but what can ya do!? I got tricked into buying these as I was leaving a home show once upon a time and ended up finding them on Amazon for less than half the price soon after. If these weren't one of my favorite handy dandy kitchen items I would be pretty annoyed, but since I love these things I'll let it slide. Instead of storing drawers of bulky, odd sized chip clips, these fancy little guys are super thin, and they just slide over the top of bags to seal them up. They're actually pretty dang cool! We love these and they keep bagged items fresher longer.

SMALL PONY BEADS
AMAZON
What's a girl to do when she has approximately 1,344 free hours to occupy her kids' time? Give 'em tons of microscopic beads that take hours of backbreaking intensive labor to create jewelry and tell them it's "fun". Seriously, my girls have been on such a bracelet/jewelry making kick lately and I've been loving it too! They've been making some for themselves, some for me, and some to give to their friends too. And there was one item in my blog post that caught your fancy! This bead kit is #5 on the list!

ONE STEP HAIR VOLUMIZING HAIR DRYER
REVLON
f being in love with a brush is wrong, than I don't want to be right. I'll admit, I didn't have the highest of hopes for this thing - it kind of seemed like one of those too good to be true type deals. But guys! This thing smoothed, straightened, and de-frizzed my lion's mane in record time. I'm in love, I'm in love, and I don't care who knows it! And at just $50 your wallet will love it too.

TOILET PAPER
AMAZON
I was so flattered when two of my favorite friends dropped by to visit unexpectedly. I was less flattered when I found out they were just trying to get the scoop on the new Amazon toilet paper I ordered and investigate my claims that it's as plushy on the tush as Charmin. Jokes on them, it IS as good and with that kind of attitude, I might just stock the guest bathroom with the crusty stuff that leaves crumbs in your bum. Listen, I'll be the first to admit, over the years I've become a little more high maintenance about the mundane. I blame Braun. But good, soft, non-crumbly toilet paper is a must! I was super skeptical but this cheaper toilet paper is just as good as the plushy stuff. Try it and tell me what you think!

EAR CRAWLER
AMAZON
Diamonds may be a girl's best friend, but cubic zirconia is a wallet's best friend! These are one of my favorite pairs of earrings that I get quite a few questions about. They're ear crawlers so they go up the ear lobe for a modern look! I love 'em, they dress up jeans and a tee or can be paired with a dress and heels for a more fancy shmancy occasion!

9.
THE ULTIMATE NON-STICK PAN
AMAZON
This pan must be straight from the kitchen of Hogwarts, because it is MAGIC! A lot of cookware boasts being non-stick, but this one is the real deal. It's so easy to wash, even the most stubborn of foods disappear with just a little water and a few swipes of a sponge. Easily my favorite pan I've ever had and only $30.

GEL CRAYONS
SHUTTLE ART
Crayola who?! These gel crayons are the smoothest, best, most amazing crayons to write and color with! I first got them a few years ago from my friend @amyrobisondesign and we have been hooked ever since. Be ready to commit to a life of crayon snob-dom after trying these because they really take coloring to a whole new level! Love them - and so do you!
