although it could be every day in every month since we are quarantined for the 637th day. My Amazon lists are are at least keeping me on track what month it is.

It was quite the fashion months over here with lots of cute things I have found to wear for Spring and Summer and the other category is baby. Got some baby things after going home from the hospital cause I thought it couldn´t hurt to have them on hand among the other items we already got.

Let´s round-up my purchases for the month of April.

April Amazon Finds

St. Moriz Instant Tannig Mousse // Since it has been sold out everywhere I ordered it on amazon and got a mitten inclusive so that´s a win. I am anxious to try it out on the weekend. Got it in the shade medium and hope it isn´t to dark for my fair self.

#momlife t-shirt // I thought it was only appropriate to own a shirt like this since I am a mom now. Also how cute is this pink color. Got a size medium for a longer fit.

Tie-dye oversized shirt // Only my second piece which fits the tie-dye trend but I might have gotten myself a new favorite. The neon colors are super cool and the shirt is so soft. On the prodcut description it says that it should be a dress but for that it is mighty short. 

Fisher Price mobile // We got this mobile for her bed in our bedroom as we figured she might love the dancing teddy bears and the star reflections but sadly it can not be assembled onto that bed so we saved it for her crib in the nursery. Adorable teddy bears, it makes different sounds and glows in the dark. For the price of under 40 Euro definitely worth it and the mobile appears to be quite sturdy so it could have a long life. 

What to expect the first year // We where in deperate need of a book that showed all the upcoming stages for the next months and since I had the What to expect when you are expecting and liked it a lot I went with this as follow up.

Longsleeve jersey dress // I personally love a jersey dress. They are super cute and versatile while amazingly comfortable. One of the best pieces to throw on if you don´t know what to wear. I got the coral color in this and it is a lot darker than on the picture. I would say it is definitely more a brick red than a coral shade nevertheless the dress is affordable, comfy and not to short. I got a size medium and it fits great on the upper body and a little more loose on the tummy area as I still have some baby pounds.

Maxi tank dress // By following my blog you know about my love for anything midi and maxi and this dress is so adorable. It has a great lenght for me which means I can also wear it with flats (I am 1,64 cm) cause it isn´t too long. Also super stretchy and not seethrough at all. Perfect for a weekend dress or dressed up for a summer garden party. I ordered size medium.

Guitar graphic tee // I am on a total graphic tee kick and looking for the best in every store. I definitely like Disney, band shirts, city names and colorful prints. Got a size medium in this as I wanted it to be a little more loose and longer and it fits great.

Sunglasses // Can´t resist a cool pair of sunglasses although I already have about 20 pairs but somehow they get lost in all of my handbags and when I am in need of one I can´t find one. All the colors of this model are pretty but I got the nude shade and the leopard print.

Black cumin oil // We have been using this for some years as a lotion for our dog Chloe cause it is supposed to repell ticks and in our opinion it is working great. She probably has about 5 now over the whole summer as before it would have been about 30. Definitely worth a try.

See you tomorrow for a bunch of date night ideas to try at home while we are #stayingathome as much as possible.

My Amazon Buys – February…

….

Happy Monday,

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

it is finally March which means we are closer to Spring which hopefully means warmer weather and Spring looks and the other great event which hopefully takes place this month is giving birth to our baby girl.

But for now and since we are still waiting on everything I am sharing my February Amazon buys with you guys.

Golden Rectangular Earrings // I finally ordered another pair of these adorable golden earrings. Haven´t gotten them now but I really hope they arrive this time cause the mail has lost my first pair already. This style will work great with so many looks I have planned for spring and summer. Gold jewelry always looks best with a tan in the summer.

Baby´s First Year Blanket + Cards // Can´t wait to use this with baby girl. Really great quality of the muslin blanket and sturdy number cards. I think the set has a great value for under 25 Euro.

Set of Braided Headbands // If you are following my blog you might know I am a headband lover from the first second so I am always looking for new styles and colors I don´t have and let me tell you, this set of three is so comfortable also how gorgeous is the deep royal blue color!!!!!

Flanell Bow Headband // Saw this on a bunch of bloggers and reminded me of my childhood cause I had a piece like this when I was little. There are several styles available but of course I ended up getting the leopard print one. I am using it every evening when I am washing/cleaning my face.

Salad Chopper // Ordered this to chop my salad as I hate having big chunks of salad on my plate. It literally make me cook less salad cause I hate the messy eating. This is abolute perfect for it. Also works great with spaghetti if you like to eat them with a spoon and no mess.

Simple Modern Water Bottle // Pregnant or not, you are supposed to drink a lot of water to keep your body hyrated so I got this adorable water color in the mother-of-pearl color. Keep my water super cool which I prefer over anything else but it also comes with a second lid for hot beverages. So the cooling function will work the other way around too.

Hair Turban // I had one of these when I was younger – why are all of my hair accessories missing these days  – so I got this one again. It has a button on the back so it holds all the wet hair perfectly after washing and the material is supposed to soak up all the excesive water that´s left in your hair to dry it quicker.

Beaded Pink Earrings // Perfect for Spring so why not?!

Cribsheet // Going to read this step by step. Depends on how far we are with baby girl but it it works until age two if I remember correctly. Holds tons of information. Definitely work a read.

Meat Masher // Super basic but totally convenient for cooking any type of minced meat. Provides lumps and everything will be cooked through equally. Also the consistency of the product you are using it on gets a lot smoother.

Hospital Nightgown // I always feel a lot more comfortable in my own clothes so I got this hospital inspired night gown. It has buttons alongside the back in case you need/want an epidural so it is basically designed for this case.

Nipple Cream // Going to need this one from what I hear.

Letter Necklace // Got this in addition to my mama necklace with the letter E for our baby girl´s name. I love wearing both of them mixed together as the lenghts pair perfectly. Also available in silver if you aren´t a gold fan.

Pepper Spray // Not necessarily a must but I am walking Chloe most of the days alone so I am feeling better having something on me. Also I am not the fastest anymore so a little more precaution can´t hurt.

GG Statement Earrings // Hopefully they arrive soon cause aren´t they just beautiful with all the different colors.

Rolling Stones inspired Sweater // The number one sweater I have seen everywhere the last few weeks. I love mine a lot. Got a size small since they only sell unisex sizes and it still fits with the bump, thight but fits. Separate outfit post coming soon.

It has been a lot of stuff I have found this month but it also included some baby/pregnancy related products which I clearly need for my hospital bag (going to share all of these items in a different post but first I have to find out which ones I really need and which ones are good/crap).

My Amazon Buys – January…

….

Happy Friday you guys,

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

the fresh year starts with a fresh amazon buys haul I wanted to share with you. So for the last months I have been ordering mostly baby products but I also got some other nice things I wanted to share with you. 

I probably already said that but I love love love amazon. They carry everything you would ever want or need or probably don´t ever need in one shop. 

Here are my January picks:

Acrylic bath organizer // I have seen these genius acrylic organizer called “Lazy Susan” on Rach Parcells post and knew immediately that I had to have them too. I had such a mess in my bathroom cabinets and was so tired of searching for stuff. These are super convenient and stylish too. Will make you life a lot easier.

set of baby bows // cause they will look super cute

carry-on luggage // I got this for you Rome trip in January we didn´t go cause I thought the colors theme is so beautiful and one of a kind and it will look great with my Neverfull. So now it waits for our next trip. Great quality for the price and it is also available in two other colors (blue and black with the cognac colored trim) and on sale very often.

maternity/nursing pj´s // Going to pack them into my hospital bag as my bump will still be there then but I also have to breastfeed the baby so I think this double version will come in pretty handy.

bracelet // This David Yurman dupe makes an awesome addition to the other two bracelets I already have. They are quite heavy and made of great quality for the price point of under 20 Euro. Pretty to stack or wear by itself.

Burt´s Bees baby oil // I originally wanted the mom oil for my bump but got this instead. Going to save it until baby is finally here. 

nursing bra´s // They cheapest option with the best reviews. I got this set with 3 nude colored ones and also a set with gray, pink and black. I think they are made pretty well and hold up quite nice in the washing mashine. The snaps are easy to open and close with one hand and you can also adjust them in the back if they should feel to tight on you.

handbag organizer // I bought this about a week after getting my Luis Vuitton Neverfull cause the bag is huge and things got lost in the bag all the time.

Twelve hours sleep by twelve weeks old // Got this book in hope for us to get to sleeping schedule before we turn into acutal zombies. Had a ton of great reviews so we´ll see.
