Happy July 5th friends! Here’s hoping everyone in the US had a safe and happy 4th of July. As we dive into the new month it’s time to kick off the monthly posts I love sharing: Prime Purchases with Tanya and my Closet Confessions. Closet Confessions will come later but today I’m happy to share my Amazon Prime Purchases from the month of June. There are definitely some good ones including a bikini that this 54 year old is loving as well as great make up under $5!
This is definitely one of my favorite purchases. Andrea has this and recommended it, I bought it and LOVE it. Last year during the NSale I bought one and wore it ALOT. It started to turn a bit. This one has two necklaces and is half the price. It also comes in silver. I don’t wear it everyday but I’ve worn in plenty and so far it looks fabulous. This year’s NSale has the same one I bought last year (it’s $10 more this year) – don’t waste your money, get this one instead. My mother always compliments my necklace when I wear it so I ordered one for her birthday. It’s under $13!
If you know me, you know I despise shapewear. I don’t like anything constricting and it’s too hot here to be bothered. But my friend Windy told me about these when we were shopping on my birthday. I tried on a dress at WHBM and it just clung in all the wrong ways. Needless to say I did not buy it but it led to a discussion on these shorts. I haven’t had much luck in the past with these styles because they dig into my thighs or bulge at the waist. These have a decent hem and come up high enough. Have I worn them yet? Nope. But I probably will. The thing is that I don’t buy clothes that require them but I think they’re good to have in my drawer. I know many women wear them regularly so if that’s you, you might want to check these out. The price was good and so is the quality.
This bikini! Y’all, it’s a good one. The bottoms have tummy control and come up nice and high while the legs have a good cut too. The top has great support thanks to the halter neck tie and the two adjustable straps at the back. We have a beach vacation coming up and wanted a third bathing suit to use in my rotation. I swear by this one piece and own it in two colors.
My husband took over the kitchen duties when I had food poisoning and decided we needed new spatulas. He ordered these. They work well. Apparently I need to have him take over a few other duties, like laundry, so he’ll see that our washing machine sounds like a freight train and I’d like a new, quieter one.
Speaking of my husband, he wanted this bluetooth speaker for Father’s Day. His old one bit the dust so it was time. We keep it outside to use while we’re in the pool and he takes it when we travel.
I needed a new straw hat and this one fit the bill. The brim is slightly larger than my old one and as I mentioned, we have a beach vacay coming up. It will get worn plenty that week. It comes in lots of colors and the price was excellent!
I list my purchases in the order I placed them and received them, but if I was listing them in order of how much I like them – this would be #1. I heard about this foundation on TikTok several times, it was on sale for under $3 so I figured I’d go for it. It blew my expectations out of the water! It provides long wearing, great coverage. The price has now gone back up – it’s under $5 – but if you’re looking for a new one, this might be the foundation for you. I have oily skin so I bought the matte finish but there is also a dewy finish for dryer skin. LOVE!!!
If you follow me on IG you have seen me showing off a new wig I purchased. The wig cap it came with hurt my head so my hairdresser suggested this type. I ordered it immediately and like it very much. I do not wear the wig daily – nor do I plant to at this point – but it’s fun for every now and again.
Our older son ordered this dashcam. I have no idea why he wanted this or why he suggests I get one (I’m not btw) but he gives this high marks.
The skin on my body is getting so dry and I had been using a lotion from Suave (because I’m cheap like that). But it really didn’t seem to make a difference and had no scent. This one got rave reviews by someone on TikTok and since I love coconut anything (but especially a Mounds or Almond Joy) I ordered this for daily use. I like it so far!
We have two products set up for auto delivery every month. I use these dishwasher cleaning tablets once a week and we get the water filter for our refrigerator every few months. They’re so handy to receive this way.
Lots of great purchases this month for me. What have you been priming? Check out Tanya’s link up, there are so many great posts and I always find new things to try!
