I honestly didn't think I bought anything from Amazon this past month, but I look back at my orders, and I sure did!

Granted, it was only a few things, but still some good finds I wanted to share.

Bike Mat.  Before I decided to go ahead with a Peloton, I looked up a bunch of reviews online.  I remember one mentioning that instead of buying a Peloton mat for the bike to go on, they were able to find a cheaper option on Amazon.  I decided to look into going that route, too.  I found this mat on Amazon and so far, have no complaints.  It comes in a few different sizes, and I went for the smallest option.  It fits well under the Peloton, and works well in my smaller space, too!  Not to mention the real kicker is that it's $40.00 less than the Peloton mat.

Real Simple Magazine.  This was a bit of an impulse buy for me.  Often times on Amazon, you can find a good deal (as low as $5.00) on a 1-year magazine subscription.  I've always enjoyed Real Simple, and when I saw it was one of the deals offered, I went ahead and ordered it.  One thing to note, with this, you get an automatic renewal for higher than the deal price, but you are notified a few times before that happens, so you can cancel at any time.

ENJOY Color Holding Conditioning Spray.  I've mentioned this spray before, when I first received a travel size bottle of it from my hair stylist.  I could really feel a difference after I started using it, so I made sure to order when I was out.  I was a little slow in ordering it, so I went a few days without using it, and honestly could tell a difference just in that time.  I really like this stuff!

The next two items are both February orders, but with Valentine's Day coming up, I wanted to share now!

I wanted to get my nephews a little something for Valentine's Day.  Nothing big, just a festive book.  Here are the two I chose:

Where is Baby's Valentine?  My youngest nephew is a big fan of lift the flap books.  I got him Zoom, Zoom Baby for Christmas, and he really liked it.  When I saw there was one for Valentine's Day, I knew that would be his little gift.  

The Berenstain Bears' Funny Valentine.  Growing up, The Berenstain Bears' books were my favorite.  My mom mentioned my nephew was into them, so of course I had to get him one.  They actually have a handful of different Valentine's Day options, but I thought he might appreciate a 'Funny Valentine' one the most.  That is the hope, anyways!

  1. I need to order one of those color holding sprays. Thanks for the tip!

  2. I just love the deals Amazon offers on magazine subscriptions! I’m still old-school and like to read magazines!

  3. We have Where is Baby's Valentine! It was one of Olivia's favorites when she was tiny. And I had no clue that you could get magazine subscriptions on Amazon... they really do have everything!

  4. Can I say that I am jealous that you have a Pelaton? I love using them at the gym when I travel. I want to try that conditioners. I forgot to get Valentine books for the girls.

  5. I always loved the Berenstain Bears growing up and read quite a few of my favorites with my boys when they were younger too.

  6. I loved reading the Berenstain Bears books to my kids when they were little. Really great classics. I'm clicking over to check out that hair product. Thanks for linking up with Prime Purchases! Tanya - The Other Side of the Road

  7. So exciting to get a Peloton! I've actually seen that bike mat recommended for using under water or messy activities for little kids and have been debating getting it. Those books are so cute- you can't go wrong with a flap book.
