If you’ve got little ones, the membership also gets you into Amazon Mom where you save 20% on all diaper subscriptions plus additional discounts an all sorts of baby / kid items! I’ve been a member since 2002 and the 2-day shipping has saved me so many times that I’d be a member even if it weren’t for these Amazon Prime Days! But, now that Amazon Prime Day is here you don’t want to miss out! It’s 30-hours of amazing discounts that started on Monday, July 10 at 9pm EST / 8pm CST / 6pm PST until Wednesday, July 12 at 3am EST / 2am CST / 1am PST with some of the lowest prices ever! I’m laying out my picks:
I can never have enough casual tops that I can style for work and weekend! I love the mix of floral and lace details. I shared this look that I wore over the Fourth of July weekend on my Instagram and was surprised at how quickly the red color sold out, but the teal one is still available and so pretty!
I check my phone wayyy too often so I can definitely see the benefit of having a smartwatch alert you of texts, calls, emails, and app updates! This watch is a whopping 40% off and the white / rose gold color is beautiful!
– only $25.99
This bag would make for a great everyday carry-all! The tan color makes it perfect for pairing with anything, the size is big enough to fit everything yet not too big to overwhelm a small frame plus it comes in 9 different color options!
We have 2 of these at our house and it’s so so convenient! I have one in the kitchen and plays music when I’m cooking and it’s great for getting updates on the weather, check traffic and catching up on the latest news. The other is in the bathroom where I use it for when I’m showering and getting ready in the morning / evening. I love that it connects to Spotify, Pandora, and even I Heart Radio so I can listen to my local radio and NPR station! Adrian also recently wired up smart lights in our home so we can even have Alexa control turning on/off the lights (so nice when I’m in a hurry getting out the door with the kids!). There are also kid-friendly skills and our favorite is the choose-your-own-adventure audio book called The Magic Door (just say, “Alexa, open The Magic Door“)! With almost a perfect 5-star rating at 57.7k+ reviews, you guys know it’s good! Plus, the white one is so so pretty that I actually love having it on display. If you get anything from the sale, it should be the Amazon Echo!
The Dot is like the mini version of the Echo and offers all the same hands-free capability but without the nice speaker. It does allow you to hook up to a speaker with Bluetooth connectivity and a 35mm output jack. The price is pretty incredible at only $35 so if you’re unsure about the Echo, definitely try the Dot!
I’ve been thinking about getting a Kindle for some time now and am thinking I’ll finally pull the trigger! I usually read on my phone right before bed and the unique feature about this Kindle is that there is no harmful blue light. Studies have shown that evening exposure to blue light from backlit screens like tablets and smartphones can suppress the body’s production of melatonin and disrupt sleep. The Kindle also reads like real paper, doesn’t cause eye strain, and is light enough for one-handed holding (I can’t remember the number of times I’ve dropped my phone on my face when I’ve been reading in bed, lol!).
Now is also the time to pick up the Amazon Fire tablet for your kids! Too often I have Dylan and Mei taking my phone so letting them have a device of their own that I can manage would make everything easier! Plus, the Fire offers best-in-class parental controls so I can conveniently manage usage times, content access, and educational goals. There’s even a Parent Dashboard that allows parents to discover what their kids enjoy and connect with them through conversation ideas!
was $129.95 $89.99 for 8-qt (over 30% in savings!)
I missed out on the Instant Pot last year and have been anxiously waiting for Amazon Prime Day this year to finally pick it up! My mom has one and seriously makes everything with it. It’s a slow cooker, rice cooker, pressure cooker, steamer, yogurt maker, etc all in one! Check out the ratings — over 19,000 reviews and nearly 5 stars!
I reviewed this coffee maker last Christmas and I love that you can choose a cup size, choose a brew, and the machine does the rest! I can customize my coffee however I like and even replicate my favorite Vietnamese coffee that I would previously order at restaurants!
The Ninja Blender is one of the best on the market and I love that this set comes with a spiralizer, processor, and blending cup! I’ve been substituting spiralized vegetables for noodles off and on for a couple years now and it’s a great way for my kids to get some extra veggies! And the blending cup looks like a great option if you’re looking for a smoothie on-the-go!
I reviewed this system a few months ago and airbrush makeup does make such a huge difference when it comes to a flawless finish. The Luminess Airbrush System is super easy to use and a great option even for beginners!
It’s no secret that I LOVE my Clarisonic — I own the Mia FIT and the Smart Profile and use them religiously! I’ve seen such a huge difference in my skin and can’t recommend it enough as a tool to add to your skincare regimen! The Mia 2 has two speeds and I use the low speed for the days when I’m not wearing makeup and the stronger speed for when I do apply maekeup and want to make sure my face is completely clean!
Brush head refills are a must if you own a Clarisonic and now is the perfect time to stock up! I just picked up on a 2-pack of brush head refills to last me through the next few months. I personally prefer the Radiance brush head as I find that it’s gentle enough to use daily on my skin and gives me a great glow!
This mirror simulates natural sunlight and is perfect for applying makeup! There have been too many times when I’ve put on too much foundation and ended up looking cakey without even realizing it. This mirror is touchscreen and easily portable!
