My Prime Day Purchases

Did anyone find some great sales yesterday for Amazon Prime Day? The deals this year looked like a complete snooze when I checked yesterday morning, but I found some excellent items later in the day! 

As always with Amazon Prime Day, these purchases were completely random, but I saved a lot of money!! Here are my Prime Day purchases for this year:

iMarku 8 Inch Chef's Knife
Originally: $99.00; Flash Deal Price: $22.03

I always try to buy kitchen materials anytime there's a big sale in a store, because lets be honest... we never feel like paying full price for kitchen stuff unless it's a gift for someone else! 

Unless you cook a whole lot, you rarely realize you don't have these things until you need them! But nice knifes are definitely a great thing to have in your kitchen, and I've read that a chef's knife is the most used knife you'll ever have! So I was really happy to find this super sharp chef's knife marked down from $99.99 to only $22.03!!! 

It also has gotten fabulous reviews and comes in a really cute box for gifting (above)! I'm excited to use this knife once it comes in. Although Prime Day is over, you can still buy this knife marked down to $39.99 here

George Foreman Quesadilla Maker
Originally: $27.13; Flash Deal Price: $14.99

I've been wanting a quesadilla maker ever since I saw one at Target last year... I just didn't want to pay full price for one at the time. 

At our condo complex we aren't allowed to have outdoor grills so I have a massive George Forman grill that I use to grill sandwiches, meats, and yes, quesadillas. Once I saw this quesadilla maker made by George Forman on sale, I knew I had to have it! 

It makes 10-inch quesadillas and has 6 deep dish pockets for lots of fillings. Honestly, the reviews on this product were a little sketchy, but whatevs. I'll you know how well it works.

I wish I had more items to report back to y'all about, but I was less impressed with the deals this year. I usually find a lot of random stuff that I need, but not this year. 

I noticed the lists of sale items were pretty short and the savings were most of the time between $2.00 and $5.00. This year I was really hoping to find a great deal on a television, but no luck. 

But regardless, my total savings for Prime Day totalled $77.96! Pretty awesome for only 2 items! If you want to read about my really random past Prime Day purchases, click here

What did you guys get on Prime Day, and did you think the sales weren't as impressive as prior years? Let me know below....

Amazon Prime Day Starts Tonight!!

I hope everyone had a fun weekend! Last week was a little too busy with the 4th being on a Tuesday and all, so I was really happy to have a chill and relaxing weekend full of hardly anything and zero obligations!

I just wanted to stop in and let you all know that Amazon Prime Day starts TONIGHT at 8 pm CST! I actually had no idea about this until I saw it on the news this morning as I was getting ready for work.

I am a huge fan of Amazon Prime Day and the Amazon Prime Now delivery service. If you don't know much about this annual sale, you can read my past posts about Prime Day from the last 2 years both here and here.

This year, if you sign up to be an Amazon Prime member, you will get 40% off your first purchase!! I will check in later this week to let you know about any great deals or tell you about my favorite purchases!

Tara Conner

Does anyone remember the Miss USA scandal back in 2006? Back then, beauty queen and Miss USA winner Tara Conner was the center of a public scandal after she was caught drinking underage, using drugs and acting inappropriately at a New York nightclub.

Consequently, she was ordered by Donald Trump to enter rehab or she would lose her crown and Miss USA title. The media questioned Trump's decision to give her a second chance, but Trump explained that it was somewhat of a personal decision since his brother had died from alcoholism years before.

Tara agreed to complete treatment and completed a 30-day program for alcohol and drug addiction.

The question is.. how is she doing now? It turns out has been sober for 10 years - quite an accomplishment!! Looks like her rehab stay really changed her life for the better. Watch her motivational, challenging and humorous discussion below about her life. She also addresses that people take a different response to the addiction crisis:

It's nice to see something positive arise from a public scandal. You go girl!! What do y'all think about her speech?

4th of July Inspo

It's already time for the 4th of July!!! Can't believe it's already here - this year has really been flying by. Not really sure what everyone's plans are.. kinda odd that it's on a Tuesday. Since people have to work on Wednesday, is everybody celebrating on Monday night instead?

Also, early birthday to my Uncle! He was lucky enough to be born on the 4th of July!!

ANYWAYS. Each year I love figuring out red and/or blue outfits.

Here is some celebrity 4th of July inspiration for your Independence Day gear:

I threw in some extra photos of my favorite celebrities i.e. Taylor Swift, Britney Spears, and an extra of Kid Rock (since he is in American flag theme year round). Also Jessica Simpson! I remember seeing her on the cover of that magazine when I was in college and I was SO jealous. How has she always looked so perfect throughout time??? Same with Paris Hilton.. they're just freaks of nature! Also, can we bring back the red pleather pants circa 1999 - 2000 please?

Hope everybody has a fabulous 4th....
