I see all these Pinterest mom’s on social media doing the cutest crafts with their kids, throwing the most outstanding birthday parties for their children, and making beautiful, delicious meals.
Then there’s me.
Although I try really hard to be that kind of mom, in reality, I am super lazy when it comes to these things. Crafts? Here are some markers. Birthday parties? Look at this beautiful cake the grocery store made for you! Meals? Who’s up for more tacos?!
No. I’m not a Pinterest mom. But you know what kind of mom I am? I am an Amazon Prime mom. Yup. I’m the mom that likes to order things and receive it two days later without another thought about it. If you’re not signed up for Amazon Prime, you should be. Here are some of my absolute favorite finds that I purchased in January.
Red Tie Front Button Down Spaghetti Strap Midi Dress
I am in love with this red dress. It is so comfortable and is going to be perfect for these warm Carolina summers. I was worried the tie in the front would be too revealing, but it is cute and doesn’t show anything I don’t want to be seen. I typically wear a small, and this dress fit me perfectly in that size. They have so many other patterns and colors to choose from as well. This red dress is definitely what I will be wearing this Valentine’s day.
Silicone Foldable Reusable Straws
We are in love with our RenuStraw’s that are made of silicone. They are extremely easy to use for our daughter who is two. She can bend and move them so she can easily drink without any fuss of holding her drink a certain way. Not only are they super easy and convenient, but their brand is focused on helping to reduce plastic waste, especially found in the oceans. They are helpful for you, and they are helpful for the environment.
Lantern Long Sleeve Tunic Dress
This fun olive green dress is the perfect dress to transition from winter into spring. It’s so comfortable and easy to throw on for church, errands or a night out. I love the different layers to the dress as well as the adorable bell sleeves. It also comes in other colors and patterns.
Panasonic Video Monitor
We have used a few different monitors in the past and with the baby, we decided to get a new one. This Panasonic Video monitor by far takes the cake for the greatest monitor! We received the original piece for Christmas but decided to buy a second camera so each girl could have one in their room. This monitor makes it extremely easy to switch back and forth between the girls’ rooms and can reach so far. There is nothing about these camera’s and monitor that we don’t like, and cannot recommend it enough.
JuJuBe B.F.F Multi-Functional Convertible Diaper Backpack
We just purchased this new diaper bag because after two years with our old one it was definitely time, and I am in love with this new diaper bag! It’s a little smaller than our first, but I am completely fine with that. I used to lug around so much stuff that I never used, so now it’s easy for me to only bring the essentials. This bag easily holds both sets of diapers, a package of wipes, the wrap I use to carry my newborn in, a sippy cup and bottle on the sides, snacks for my daughter, and personal items like phone, wallet, and keys. It even has a special pocket just for phones (oh, us millennials), which is super convenient and easy to use. The other great feature I love in a diaper bag is that it is a backpack. With two kids it’s now so much easier to have the backpack to just throw on without having to carry anything. It does come with a strap in case you don’t want to wear it as a backpack. It’s very easy to snap on and off, as well as the backpack straps. I definitely am recommending this diaper bag for any new moms, especially moms of two!
These are a few of my favorite January Amazon purchases. Check back for more each month to see my latest finds, because I am sure there are plenty more to come.
