Amazon Prime Day


Peeps! It’s Tuesday, and I am running on 4 hours of sleep! Why do I take such late flights home? Regardless of the jet lag & Denver hangover, today not only means tacos and tequila BUT it is Amazon Prime Day! Actually, it has become a two day event (October 13th & 14th); I guess it should read “Prime Day(s).” It’s kind of like the Holiday’s are starting EARLY. YES. I CANNOT WAIT! As it has been compared, this is like the Black Friday of October. Two days to snag AMAZING DEALS!

Don’t you wish Amazon Prime Day came more than once a year? 

I will be perfectly honest; this is my first year really promoting, and exploring, this annual event. While I have always been an Amazon shopper, I have expanded my recent purchases lately – i.e. check out THIS fashion blog post with more to come – and I feel like there is a whole new world that I never even knew existed. Hello Janine; where have you been? So I decided to dive right in and see what kind of deals were showcased, and compare them to what I “need.” Okay, maybe it was more like, “ooh, this price is pretty awesome, let me throw it in my cart.” It seems like the deals to get are on all the gadgets – maybe next year I will be more prepared- but I did put one “semi-tech device” in my bag.

If you are someone who shops this every year, you know things are a bit different due to Covid-19. Shopping dates aside (Amazon had to push the start day back by a few), so many of us are, solely, doing online shopping. What does this mean? Make sure to grab what you want because this year, more than ever, it may be harder to get later. Generally, Black Friday & Cyber Monday will host the same, if not similar, deals but, again, it’s a different year with. a whole new set of shopping rules.

First, you need to make sure you are a Prime Member! If you are not, you can sign up for 30 days free! It’s $119 for the year and, trust me, it is well worth the money!!! Beyond the deals, there are, also, certain incentives as well! For example, if you spend $10 at Whole Foods, you get $10 back in credit to use during Prime Day only. Spend $10 with small businesses, get $10 back in credit. See, you get the drift! Spend a little to get a LOT!

Here are some of the items that I scored on Amazon Prime Day!

P.S. Do not get discouraged if the site seems to be taking FOREVER! Everyone knows where to find a good sale, that’s for sure!

Allacaca Fast Charging Station for Multiple Devices$35.19 “Lightening Deal”

You know that I am a HUGE NEAT FREAK! One thing that I cannot stand is all the cord clutter when it comes to charging my computer, iPad, iPhone, iWatch, etc. I have tried all different ways to make it look neat but I have had no luck whatsoever. I have even tried other charging stations that have been bulky, plastic, and downright not aesthetically pleasing. Are any of these super pretty? Nah BUT I think this one, in particular, is sleek, non-cumbersome, and looks like it will do the trick!

FYI: A “lightening deal” is a limited number of discounts offered on a particular item. Needless to say, I am, currently, on the waitlist!

Colgate Optic White Overnight Teeth Whitening Pen: $25.49 + an additional 20% off at checkout 

Yes, I am a bit obsessed with how my teeth look. Sorry, I just am! While I am a fan of a good teeth whitening, I am not a fan of the gross strips – I use but I don’t love – and the tooth sensitivity, ick. While I have tried a whitening pen before, I am excited to try this latest from Colgate, especially since it is overnight! This just seems like an absolute win to me…and an, additional, 20%? Yeah baby!

The Drop Women’s Camila Slouchy Crew Neck Sweater: $34.93

It is sweater weather love, and can you really have TOO many in your wardrobe? I snagged this one in ivory because, after peeking in my closet, I realized that the ivory/white versions I have are either big/bulky or turtleneck cashmere. This seemed like a perfect blend of casual but classy, and can be dressed up with jeans, black pants, or even a cute skirt!

Floerns Women’s Loose Drop Shoulder Lantern Sleeve Fashion Pullover Sweater Top: $13.59

Okay, THIS PRICE and THESE LANTERN SLEEVES. How fun, how classy, and talk about another piece that can be dressed up or down, with heels or flats, with pants or a skirt. Oh, I see big hoop earrings and a drop necklace on this beauty!

Garnier SkinActive Clean & Refreshing Makeup Remover Wipes: $16.48 + an additional 30% off at checkout

I know this may seem odd BUT I go through these A LOT and they are kind of expensive. Just saying! You know I can spend money but $8 for a pack of $25? COME ON! Love the fact that these come in a pack of 3 with an additional 30% off at checkout! I mean, that is, basically, $4 a pack. Maybe I should have purchased more than just 1!

KOOLORBS Makeup Mirror with Lights, 3 Color Lighting Vanity Mirror: $18.39

Back in the day, I had a makeup mirror. I thought I was cool. I was in middle school. Not sure I know where that went. Now I rely on my makeup artist to help get this face in check, ha! This is something I have wanted to get but there are so many out there, of all different price ranges, and, well, I didn’t want to mess up. Janine, this is a flipping makeup mirror…this is not like you are purchasing a house. Or buying a car. Or something that matters a whole heck of a lot more. For the price, and the reviews, this seemed like an awesome choice! Don’t worry, I will let you know about this BIG DECISION. Ha!

Do you have any Amazon Prime Day deals that you think I should know about? Please, SHARE! Love to know what I should be perusing! Happy Tuesday!
