Prime Purchases - January 2020

AND, it's that time, Prime Purchases!  I have quite an array of items today.  I have been doing a bit of "fluffing" of our nest this month and some of the items are a reflection of that.  Other items are most useful, and some, well, you know, I just wanted them. ~chuckle~  I hope you will find something that you need or want out of today's items.


I may have mentioned this little jewel to you before but I ordered my 2nd one last month so perhaps someone reading this hasn't seen this before.  These mini flat irons are just dandy to own, especially if you have short hair.  It is very easy to get very close to the scalp or neck with these without burning yourself.  They are also great for gals that just use a flatiron on their bangs.  I use this for more of my hair than my regular flatiron. 


I love copper and when I saw this pitcher I had to have it.  It is great for decoration or to use as a container for a flower arrangement.  I keep it sitting in the middle of my flat stove top and it makes such a statement.  I can also use it to serve a beverage when I host company. Below is a picture of it in our kitchen.


I have been looking for some new containers for arrangements on our fireplace mantel.  I looked all over, never even thought about Amazon.  Then one day I decided that Amazon might just have something and I was so glad I did.  I saw these and knew they were "it."  I had no idea that Tiffany made anything except lamps.  These are just beautiful and thought you'd enjoy seeing how they look on our mantel.


If you need to get a baby gift then I highly recommend this bamboo hooded towel and wash cloth set.  I have given these a couple of times and I will be giving this in the coming weeks to a sweet gal that will be having a little girl.  They  hold up amazingly!  


I have heard and read so much about weighted blankets but I have now experienced a weighted blanket.  Oh, my goodness, it's like being wrapped in a big hug!  They come in all sizes and weights.  We have a king sized bed but I got a queen size and it works perfectly for us.  I put it cross ways and it covers from our feet up to our ribs, which for us is perfect.  This one is 12 pounds and again, it's the perfect weight for us.  I have seen them well over 20 pounds and I can't imagine sleeping under that much weight.  Some come with covers that can be taken off and washed but this one doesn't have a cover.  I can't imagine that it will need washing as it's not against our bodies and it doesn't come up close to our faces.  I guess time will tell.  I've always liked heavy covers, they make me feel very secure while I'm sleeping.  I highly endorse the weighted blanket!


Isn't this the cutest casserole carrier?  I have one but in recent months I have needed two, so ordered this one.  I mean if you've got to have a casserole carrier, it might as well be cute. ~smile~


I have given these tumblers as gifts a whole lot lately.  They are so sassy and cute and soooo much easier to hold than the big, fatter tumblers.  I have them monogrammed and that makes them all the cuter.  There are several patterns and colors and this black bling is quite popular.  They also have a white one with bling that is also awesome. They really do make a lovely gift!


We just had this wi-fi system installed in our house a couple of weeks ago.  We had areas of our house that had less than desired wi-fi connectivity and we have the guest suite upstairs over Tommy's shop and wanted better coverage there.  This system comes with a router and 2 satellites and we are super pleased with this system.  



I bought my first piece of Copper Chef cookware about a year ago.  It is my favorite piece of cookware by far.  I have a great set of stainless cookware but just added a few pieces of the Copper Chef to it.  You never have to worry about anything sticking and you can use them on the stove or in the oven.  And, I love the square design of the cookware.  There are other brands of copper cookware but I can only attest to Copper Chef.  I do believe it was the first brand  made and now there are 2-3 others.



I was introduced to this week before last while we were visiting my brother and his wife in Arizona.  They often drink this for their breakfast for its nutritional value.  I rarely eat breakfast unless we happen to go out for breakfast so I decided I would order some of this and start drinking it for my breakfast.  I mix it with unsweetened Almond Milk and add a teaspoon of Stevia and while I wouldn't call it delicious, it is good and provides me a good start to my day.  I drank it the first day without the Stevia and found out real quick that it needed some sweetner. You could always use sweetened Almond Mike but that adds a whole lot of calories, so I'm sticking with the Stevia.  It is like a shake and you will need one of the fat straws if you don't want to drink it straight from the glass. 



If you have an Apple watch and want a good looking band then you need to order this mesh band.  It comes in 4 colors (silver, gold, black and rose gold) and is very affordable.  I have the silver, black and gold and change them out.  I do love my Apple Watch and while I did not get mine from Amazon, you certainly can order one from them.  I especially love that I can talk on it if my phone isn't nearby (in the house) and receive texts.  And, the tracking of my activity is fun for me. ~just saying~



Okay, if you have looked or are looking for something to hold your phone where it is easily accessible in your car then look no more.  No joke!  I've had one that stuck to the windshield but this is far superior and it will fit any size cup holder you may have.  There are 5 sizes of the cup and you find the one that fits your holder and use it.  Now, I will tell you that the instructions on how to get the cups off are not very clear and I ended up having to U-tube the instructions to get it figured out.  I needed the 3rd sized cup and had to get the bottom two off.  It was well worth the struggle to get it figured out as my phone is now secure and when I need it for GPS, it is in easy view.  There are several "take offs" of this that are much less expensive but I know Weather Tech is known for their superior products so I opted for the "real deal." 



Hubby and I flew a couple of weeks ago to Tucson, Arizona.  I took my awesome neck support pillow and he snagged it as soon as we got on the plane.  I sacrificed having one so he could use it.  He loved it, so when we got home I ordered another one just like it.  I looked at the shops in the airport thinking they would have one but they did not have this type.  They had the ones that have the little beads or pellets and are NOT firm.  So, we now each have one and they are so easy to carry as they snap securely on your purse or tote handle.  You will be the envy of everyone on the plane I promise.  And, they can be used in your vehicle if need be when you are traveling.


And, there you have it for another month.  See you next time!

  2. I have one of the memory foam neck pillows and cannot go without it! Marty took my old one which was beaded and he likes it so I then purchased a memory foam. I am hiding it from him! LOL! Love the finds. Copper vase is beautiful. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  3. You've been finding some great things. That pitcher is beautiful along with the vases. I love all things gingham and those baby towels are precious. Katie babysits some little girls (ages 1 & 1 1/2) that are cousins and the younger ones name is Crea, but her cousin calls her CiCiđź’•

  4. Great finds! I may need to check out the mini straight iron. Oh and I've had my eye on the Orbi system for a while now. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Great list! I am off to order that copper teapot!!! Lovely! I have one of those dressy bands for my Apple Watch and it makes it look so much dressier! Have a great day!

  6. It is always fun to see what other folks have purchased and love enough to share!! Going to check out a couple of things! Those Tiffany vases are beautiful on your mantel. Thanks!

  7. You find the BEST things on Amazon. That copper pitcher is amazing! And why yes, it is the cutest casserole carrier I’ve seen AND I’ve been wanted one. Hugs to you sweet friend! xo

  10. I love all your new touches around the house. I'm clicking over to check out the mini flat iron - it would be great for travel! Thanks for linking up with Prime Purchases! Tanya - The Other Side of the Road

  11. Lea, you can be counted on to introduce us to things I've not seen or even thought of -- and then we feel like we need them! Those vases on your mantel are so pretty!!

    The phone holder for the car, using the cup holder-- that's a good idea. I currently have my phone on a clip thing on my AC vent. It works okay but it blocks my view of the temperature and clock read-outs on my dash.

    Thanks for this service you provide!

  12. I always seem to mark at least one or two things from you Prime Purchases and add to my Wishlist:) I have been thinking about trying a flat iron and this one looks like a good one to try. I've missed you here so was glad to see you posted. Hope all is well with you and yours.

  13. I have never been disappointed with purchases you recommended:) I have wondered about the cupfone thingy, I just need to get one. LOVE the vases on your fireplaces, great choice. Enjoy your day dear friend, HUGS!

  14. I really like the design of that casserole carrier. Your mantel is decorated very nicely.

  15. Omg I Finally Got Helped  !! I'm so excited right now, I just have to share my testimony on this Forum.. The feeling of being loved takes away so much burden from our shoulders.

Luckily I was directed to a very powerful spell caster Dr Emu who helped me cast a spell of reconciliation on our Relationship and he brought back my wife and now she loves me far more than ever.. I'm so happy with life now. Thank you so much Dr Emu, kindly Contact  Dr Emu Today and get any kind of help you want.. Via Email emutemple@gmail.com or Call/WhatsApp +2347012841542

  16. Hello everyone this is a great testimony that I must share. I never believed in spells or magic not until I met Dr. Ogala My life is back !!! After 3 years of broken marriage, my wife left me with two children. I almost killed myself, I was emotionally broken down. Thanks to a spell caster called Dr Ogala who I met online. One faithful day while browsing the internet, I came across a lot of testimonials about this particular caster. Some people testified that he brought their ex-lover back, others testified that he restored their uterus, cured cancer and other diseases, others testified that he could cast a spell to stop the divorce. I also come across one particular testimony, it was from a woman called Sonia, she testified about how he brought her Ex lover back in less than 2 days, and at the end of her testimony she dropped his email (Drogalad02@gmail.com). After reading all of these testimonials, I decided to give it a try. I contacted him via his email and explained my problem to him. In just 48 hours, my wife came back to see me. We have solved our problems, and we are even happier than before, Dr Ogala is truly a talented man, I am not going to stop posting it because he is a wonderful man.
