I fully believe that Amazon Prime was created with moms in mind! The busier I get, the more I use Amazon Prime. Nowadays you can find just about anything on Amazon. From home decor to electronics to baby products to beauty and fashion, the options are pretty much endless. I always love seeing what types of things people purchase on Amazon and people are often amazed when I tell them something they like was found on Amazon (how many times can I say Amazon?).

I decided to pull together a list of my own to share. These are the products that I've purchased in the past month or so. Everything included is available via PRIME free 2 day-shipping and also has free returns. The prices I list may change.

1.) Eye Shadow Sponge Applicators ($6.99 for 80)
I always apply my base eyeshadow with the sponge applicator that comes with it and I often need to replace the applicator before my eyeshadow is completely used up. You get a HUGE bag of 80 and the applicators are very good quality, not flimsy at all. I probably won't have to reorder these for years.

2.) Makeup Blending Sponges ($8.99 for 5)
If you are new to using beauty blenders, this is the best place for you to start. A normal, name brand Beauty Blender costs $20, but with this you get five for $8.99! These blenders are on the larger side once wet and are also a bit more dense, but they get the job done at an amazing price! I'm working on a beauty blender dupe post for you - coming very soon - but I definitely recommend these because the price cannot be beat!

3.) Tigi Bed Head Hair Wax ($8.01)
My husband recently started using hair wax instead of hair gel and he found this one to be a great option. The smell is terrific, the wax provides a lot of hold and the jar lasts a looong time. With this wax, a little goes a long way.

4.) Electric Toothbrush Head Covers ($5.95 for 6)
For years we've had our toothbrush heads out in the open - yuck! I finally realized that someone probably made a cover to help keep them sanitary so I searched my trusty Amazon and found a pack of six. These plastic covers are very durable and not thin at all; I've never worried that I will snap or break one when clipping it on to my toothbrush. They are great for traveling, but we also use them daily to cover our toothbrush heads when not in use.

1.) White Beaded Statement Earrings ($13.97)
I LOVE statement earrings and these do not disappoint. Any time I've worn these earrings, I've always gotten tons of questions about where I purchased them. They are available in 17 colors for such a great price. The earrings are slightly heavy, but do not pull on your ear. I bought them to wear on Easter and I've also worn them to other "dressier" events.

2.) Leopard Acrylic Hoop Earrings ($9.99)
These earrings were seriously made for me. They are lightweight, leopard print and easy to dress up or down. It takes A LOT for a pair of earrings to beat my beloved Nickel & Suede earrings, but I've found myself reaching for these pretty regularly. They are available in 10 different color/style options.

3.) White Gold Delicate Choker Necklace ($17.95)
Recently, I've started to wear more delicate necklaces and I found this one for everyday wear. It is perfect for layering or just wearing by itself. It comes in yellow or white gold.

1.) Acrylic Makeup Drawers ($17.87 for the 2-drawer version)
Save your money and DO NOT buy acrylic organizers from The Container Store or Wayfair. These drawers are very high quality and hold a ton of makeup for a small fraction of the cost. I ended up buying 2 of the 2-drawer sets and stacked them on top of each other. Now I store all of my makeup in these and I love that hairspray residue and dust does not get on my makeup products.

2.) Satin Pillowcases ($12.99 for 2)
I've heard so many people recommend using a silk or satin pillowcase to help with your hair. They are supposed to help you have to wash your hair less frequently and also are supposed to be better for your skin. I'm still testing these out and will report back soon. I liked that these came in a 2 pack so both my daughter and myself could use one. I do have to say that my daughter's hair has not been such a tangled mess in the mornings ever since she started using the satin pillowcase. That is a win in itself!

3.) Travel Makeup Case ($18.98)
I think a hallelujah chorus sounded when I stumbled upon this travel makeup case. The case is very sturdy and holds its shape, so you don't have to worry about any of your makeup getting damaged or busted in transit. It comes with removable dividers so you can organize the case to suit your needs. You can also use this case for other things besides makeup, but I prefer to carry my makeup in mine. There is a $2 off coupon available right now making this pretty dang cheap.

4.) Bluetooth Speakers ($27.99 for 2)
Available in blue, red or black. This was a purchase that my husband made and he seems pretty happy with them. He connects our Amazon Echo to this for better sound quality (he is a musician/tech guy, so he knows what good sound quality should be). The speakers are small and don't take up a lot of room, but they offer terrific amplified sound. I feel this is a terrific price for two speakers. The blue and red speakers are $2 cheaper than the black.

1.) Halter One Piece Swimsuit ($25.99)
I finally found the perfect suit for a mom that doesn't scream...I'm a mom! HA! This suit provides full booty coverage, has ruching at the stomach for a more slimming effect and also keeps the girls completely in place. There is a mesh netting at the chest, but you are completely covered. The halter cut is also very flattering. This suit comes in several different color options. I'm not one to love swimsuits, but this one gets pretty high marks!

2.) Button Down Dress ($20.99)
This dress is cute, but I felt that it was a bit too short (and I'm 5'4"). So instead of wearing it as a dress, I use it as a short sleeve layering piece and it works great. I normally pair it with a tank and a pair of jeans. If you opt to wear it as a dress you can tie it in the front or the back to give it a different look. I removed the tie completely since I wear it as a shirt.

1.) Stroller Fan ($19.99)
We are headed to Florida this summer so I felt like a stroller fan was a must. The fan is compact and includes a very sturdy clip. In testing it out, the fan is very powerful and I'm confident it will help to keep my little guy (and maybe us!) cool. It comes with a rechargeable battery and USB cord. The fan itself easily tilts different directions.
