What we are Amazon Priming


I recently saw that Erika from A Little Bit of Everything blog, was doing this series where she will let you know all of the things she is ordering from her Amazon Prime account. Partly because it is fun and partly because who doesn’t love being a little nosy and seeing what other people buy. I thought it was a great idea, so I decided to get in on the fun. Here are the things I have been priming in the last month.

Beamo Flying Frisbee

AP 1

Between the two kids we get invited to birthday parties all the time. I do not have time to shop for presents (and the older kids get gift cards) so I tend to Amazon Prime presents. Brooke got one of these frisbee’s for her birthday back in March and LOVED it (for like the two days it was nice outside and she could use it) therefore this is now my go-to gift for kids. It gets them outside and is way better than a silly toy.

Tinkle Eyebrow Razor

AP 2

Ok, so this is something that I have been using for like a year and half now. These eyebrow razors are awesome. I use them to shave my face. Yep, you heard that right. It is a great way to get rid of the peach fuzz and exfoliate your skin. I saw a youtube video awhile back from Michelle Money and finally took the plunge and haven’t looked back since. Does your hair come back darker or more coarse? NO! You simply dry shave with these amazing little razors a few times a month for super smooth skin. I have never gotten cut from this nor have I broken out. I will say if you are considering this, make sure you buy the specific razors in my link as there are imitation razors out there for this brand that I have heard bad things about.

Australian Gold Sunscreen

AP 3

We are going to Disney World and on a Disney cruise in less than a month so I had to stock up on sunscreen. I love how Australian Gold smells. I ordered SPF 30 but also plan to buy at least 45 or 50 for me and the kids because we are so pale!!

Cover Girl Eyebrow Mascara

AP 4

I had been using Benefit Eyebrow Gel and I really loved it but it was a bit pricey so I was looking for a more affordable option. I have to say, I don’t really like this one. The wand is the same size as an eyelash mascara brush (which is way too big for me) and it is really dark. In the spirit of keeping it real, this was a fail for me.

Pirate Shirts for the Kids

AP 5

As I mentioned, we are going on a Disney Cruise and one night is Pirate themed so I ordered these shirts for the kids to wear.

Coleman Oversized Folding Chair

AP 6

I saw these on an Amazon flash deal (darn those flash sale FB posts, they get me every time!!) and knew I had to get them. We had been needing new folding chairs for awhile. Most of ours are torn apart. The kids have already decided these ones are for them and Mommy and Daddy get the old ones.


So there ya have it, what I have been priming in the last month. If you have any good Amazon finds please comment and share them with us! – Jen
