6 Favorite Amazon Subscribe and Save Items

Amazon Subscribe and Save is one of my favorite things! It is the perfect thing for all those items that you don’t get every time you go to the store. I can trust that these things will show up and I’ll get a great deal. The best part about Subscribe and Save is that the more you add to your subscribe and save the more of a discount you can get! Items show up at your door, you get a great deal AND you can save a little extra the more you buy? Yes! If you don’t want to set up a Subcribe and Save list you can also get any of these items in a single order by clicking here.


got2be ultra glued styling gel – This is my boys’ favorite gel to use on their hair! It’s a great price, they love the smell and a little bit goes a long way! It can easily last for several months. With two boys we got through quite a bit of gel because they are at the age where they really care about their hair, which is adorable.


SoCozy Detangler – We have gone through many different detanglers in our home. Truly the most important thing in handling my daughter’s hair is a great conditioner, but having a good detangler is also key. We have used really expensive ones, store brand, any brand you can think of. We finally settled on this brand and it gets the Ami two thumbs up seal of approval. I have this on subscribe and save so I never have to worry about running out of her favorite detangler!

Almay Wipe It Never Happened MakeUp Remover – I’ve talked about this makeup remover before and I’ll keep talking about it. Removing eye makeup and color stay lipstick can be a bear! What I love about this is that it is the trusted Almay brand that works for my sensitive skin. I don’t have to worry about it breaking me out or causing any problems. But the best part is that I don’t have to scrub my skin raw. Try it and let me know what you think!


Marmara cotton squares– I love these cotton squares and I used them for my face, my daughter uses them for her face, nail polish removing and because I get them in a 3 pack I only have to get them about every three months. Another great thing about Subscribe and Save is that I have the option to postpone certain items and occasionally I will push them off an extra month because I just haven’t used all of them.


Garnier SkinActive Micellar Water – Micellar Water has been a great thing for my daughter as she has entered into that phase of life where she really has to start paying attention to taking care of herself. Getting her in the habit of washing her face is easy with this. She puts a little bit on a cotton square, swipes her face and she’s good to go. I also use it to refresh my face in the morning and remove makeup in the evening. It’s great and gentle on our sensitive skin!


SoCozy body wash+shampoo+conditioner – I love the SoCozy brand, as you saw above, and in the summertime, I add the pool shampoo conditioner to my subscribe and save list. But, during the rest of the year, I purchase this 3n1 specifically for my boys. Its easy and simple and they only have to use one bottle. Makes shower time so easy for me AND them! It is a salon quality product for kids, non-toxic and protects hair. It also leaves their hair so soft and smelling good!

Alexander and the Terrible Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day *giveaway*

Who as a kid remembers this book? I know I do.  I think its part of every kid’s growing up, or it should be anyhow. When Disney announced that they were doing a movie based off this book I was super excited. It has an allstar cast and I believe my eight year old would think this movie is hilarious!  If by some crazy reason you do not know about this fantabulous book and movie, here’s a little run down for you:

Alexander’s day begins with gum stuck in his hair, followed by more calamities. Though he finds little sympathy from his family and begins to wonder if bad things only happen to him, his mom, dad, brother, and sister all find themselves living through their own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.
In celebration I have some really fun movie swag to give away! To win simply leave a comment telling me either your favorite children’s book to movie adaptation or what book you’d love to see turned into a movie.

Good Luck!!!

New Beginnings – She’s a Big Girl Now!

New Beginnings, is a good way to look at complete and utter, totally overly-dramatic sadness.  But seriously, I sent my little girl off to school.  I sent her out into the world, all day, without me. sigh. She was so excited and so ready to begin this exciting adventure.  My older son has been the sweetest ever, excitedly filling her in on what to expect and offering to walk her to her class this morning all by himself.

 she wants to be a baby doctor….I love that

She picked out her outfit and woke up even before my alarm went off.  She came home excited and told me everything with the sweetest look on her face.  Little did she know, only a couple hours before I was bawling my eyes out in the shower. oiy!!!

She was ready, and I know that; but that doesn’t mean I was.  No, not by any stretch of the imagination was I ready for this.  I wasted away my summer, ignoring what was coming.  My baby was going to Kindergarten.  When my oldest went to school I was sad, really sad.  I remember crying, but this was different.  I’m one step closer to being done.  And while I realize that I still have like three more years before all of them are in school that doesn’t mean I’m able to shove those thoughts out of my head.  On any given day I would characterize myself as an emotional person.  I usually wear them on my sleeve and don’t attempt to hid them.  Age has only slightly improved that.  One of my more popular posts is “How Do You Know?” where I lament over the fact that I realize that we are done but I don’t feel it.  This undoubtedly is one of the reasons while sending my little girl off to school has been so difficult.

The best big brother in the whole world.  I’m a lucky momma!

New Beginnings is what I titled this post, mostly because it fits in with the theme of Blogger Challenge 2014.  Its a chance to new beginnings though isn’t it?  Simple days with my littlest guy, exploring and learning.  Taking naps with him and getting in all those snuggles that he so loves to give. This time is a gift, and I intend to make the most of it.

FUNkins – Reusable Napkins that are super FUN!

I would like to extend my gratitude to Funkins for sponsoring this post. 

As the mom of school age children, trying to make lunch exciting every day could send even the most creative mom into a tail spin.  Next year, when my daughter starts school I plan on venturing into the world of Bento Boxes.  That should be fun right?  Not only do I like to be fun, but being green doesn’t hurt either.  I wouldn’t classify myself as a “crunchy” mom, but I cloth diaper, we recycle and try to be conscious.  Most of everything I use in my son’s lunch is in reusable tupperware.  But one thing I haven’t thought about was cloth napkins!  We use them at home, so why not in the lunchbox?!  It’s just another way to have fun with the kids in the kitchen.  I love the concept, and its a fun and easy way to teach kids about reusing items.  It’s more than a napkin though, its like a little mini-table cloth, keeping their food off those lunch tables.

How can you use Funkins?


  • In a lunch box
  • As a napkin or a placemat
  • Cupcake or cookie decorating stations for school parties – replace those throwaway table cloths
  • At restaurants or on airplanes
  • To wrap around freezies, popsicles and ice cream cones
  • At the office
  • As a party favor
  • As a burp cloth
  • As a hostess gift
  • As a Teacher’s gift
  • Baby blankets for dollies
  • To brighten your festive holiday table
  • At theme parks
  • Tie one to your purse, diaper bag or backpack – looks fun and great for easy use

The founder of Funkins, a mom of three, created Funkins out of necessity.  In an effort to help her children’s school create a low-waste lunch time, she aimed to find herself some kid-friendly cloth napkins.  None could be found.  Out of that Funkins was born.

Today Funkins is so much more than reusable napkins.  You can find Art Smocks, Art Aprons for both adults and children, insulated/machine washable lunch bags and wet bags (Hello Cloth Diapering fans!!).

Pink Butterflies

Funkins makes all these items in cute and super kid friendly patterns!  The napkins are soft and a great size (13×15).  There are so many patterns to choose from, tons of pages, it was hard to narrow down.  They even have a camouflage/military themed napkin! Funkins are reasonable priced at $10.00 each.  If you think about how much waste is made, and how much money is spent on reusable items like napkins its a steal.  It’s truly so easy being green!



You can follow Funkins on social media to learn more, find out about deals and giveaways!
Funkins also has a great Pinterest page.  They have great tips for green living, fun recipes and even creative school lunch ideas (I need those!!)
