Recent Amazon Finds:

  1. Ugg Slipper Dupes! Yall. I love these. They’re so soft and cozy. The memory foam is the bomb. For like a FRACTION of the price!
  2. Hair Tie: I LOVE THESE. They’re similar to that gimme brand you’ve seen all over instagram. They don’t pull your hair out when you pull the ponytail out. AND they actually hold your hair up nicely. I love a good popping pony.
  3. My new devotion: She works HIS way. Love this devotion SO much. It’s quick, but very applicable for life and ties in great scripture.
  4. Graco Carseat: We had to buy extra carseats for the truck and I bought this one and was really blown away. I have never had a graco carseat and they’re so great! Comfortable AND cup holders. Praise for the cup holders.
  5. Earring Backs: So I lost the back to my diamond earring and they’ve been sitting for months because I’m too scared to wear them again. These backs have been so great and secure. I’ve been really happy with them and they came in a pack of 12!
