May - Prime Purchases

And, here we are, in the month of May.  We, here in NE Louisiana, are glad to see April go.  It rained, rained and rained some more and we are weary of it.  We do hope it leaves us with gorgeous blooming flowers bursting forth soon.  In the meantime, let's check out my Prime Purchases.


Ladies, this is the best looking cardigan!  If you've hung around here very long then you know I am attracted to pearl embellishments on sweaters.  This is such a cute cardigan and can be dressed up or down.  It's not a heavy sweater and perfect for spring.


These are called the Martha Stewart Bobs and they are so cute and comfortable.  I have a narrow foot and these only come in a medium width, so I put an insole and a heel pad in to help with the fit. I love the elevated sole a whole lot and they come in a natural color that I also got.


I am a fan of lightweight sweaters in the spring and this one "fits the bill." Yes, I'm cold natured and I'd much rather be a tad warm than a tad cool.  It is well made and fits well.  It comes in about 10 different colors, made of 100% cotton and very affordable.  Go grab you one!


 Yes, I do love handbags, in case you have not noticed that.  And, I like ones that easily hold all my "stuff" and this one fits the bill.  It's leather, good price point and comes in 6 colors.  It is a requirement for me that all my handbags have an outside pocket and this one does.  As I've said before, I have a small shopping purse that stays in my vehicle as I do not carry a heavy handbag on my shoulder anymore.  


I'm betting most of you reading this have played Uno but have you played Uno flip?  Well, if you haven't then you need to.  Our daughter taught us to play while we were there a few weeks ago and we had so much fun.  It should almost be called "frustration" as it can certainly be frustrating while playing but that's part of the fun.


Flat top brushes are my new favorite makeup brushes.  They come in various sizes but this is the one I use most.  I use this to put the neutral colored eyeshadow all over my eyelid before applying any color.  It works great!  I also have a much larger version for my loose powder application.


I have taken a liking to olive leaf vine and this one is so realistic.  I ordered the set of two and am using them on our mantle with the automatic twinkle lights intertwined.  I have them set to come on at dusk and I love the ambiance it gives to the room.


I love gazing balls and enjoy using them in a few of our flower beds.  This is my newest one and it is so pretty, especially when the sun hits it.

This is the stand I ordered to place it on.  You can get stands of various heights.  I usually place them a bit under the dirt for stability and all 4 of the ones we have survive the often strong winds we have here on "the hill."  They comes in all sorts of colors and patterns and, for me, are a nice touch.


Who knew there was a battery operated flosser!  Not me, at least not until the other day when my dentist's hygienist told me about this one.  I ordered it immediately and I loved it the minute I used it.  I hate flossing and anything I can do to improve it, makes me happy.  Flossing is so important and this little gadget is making it a tad bit more enjoyable for me.


We needed some new chairs to carry to the ballpark.  We had ones with the woven webbing and it was about worn out.  I wasn't even sure those were made anymore as everyone now has the mumbo jumbo chairs with rockers, lift out drink holders and all the bells and whistles.  Well, those only weight about 25+ pounds and we aren't into carrying that much weight and we aren't into pulling a wagon either.  So, while looking to replace our chairs I ran across these.  AND, they have a shoulder strap that works like a charm and they weigh a mere 7 pounds.  They did have the webbed chairs with straps as well but I like these with the solid seat and back better.  And, they are cute as can be and as we know, cute is always an added bonus. ~chuckle~


I've had a Nix digital frame for about 10 years and was very happy with it but it had about served it's purpose. And digital frames have come a LONG ways in the last 10 years.  So, a couple of weeks I did my research and the Aura is one of the most highly rated digital frames.  I immediately went to Amazon to see if they carried it, and, of course, they did.  It might have taken me 5 minutes to set it up and now I send photos to it thru the Aura app on my phone.  And, the pictures are beautiful when they come across the frame.  I couldn't be happier.  It has way more bells and whistles than my older one.

That wraps up this months Prime Purchases.  Perhaps something peeked your interest either for yourself or for a gift.

Have a wonderful new week!!!

  1. The shoes are so cute and I really like the garland too. I bet that is beautiful with the lights! I have never heard of an electric flosser either. I will have to look into that. Have a great Monday!

  2. I love those shoes and will definitely put them on my wish list! I also love buying purses. I have to laugh because almost all of my social media ads are for purses. ;) Thanks so much for linking up with Prime Purchases! Tanya -

  3. I always enjoy your prime purchases and ALMOST ALWAYS buy something after :-)

  4. Gazing balls are beautiful but I've never had one. Do you leave them out year 'round? Are they safe in a hail storm?

  5. Great buys... love the shoes. And need to order that flosser...fell, broke my wrist in two places, surgery, plates, screws...ugh! Cannot floss with one hand so this looks great!


So glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed your visit. I love your comments and read each and every one of them and I always try to reply to them. Blessings to you this day!
