August round-up: Princess tents, twinkle lights and other favorites!

August was an awesome month for products! I feel like everything I ordered was exactly how I envisioned it, if not better. I love when you get what you were looking for on the first try.

Here were the winners this month!

  1. Girls Princess Castle Play Tent: I try to remain gender neutral when it comes to going over the top with the Pepto Bismol pink, but this was just too cute to pass up. Our girl has been climbing in and out and under every piece of furniture we own, so we finally caved and ordered this tent for her. It’s adorable, you guys. Bigger than I expected, but still fits perfectly in the living room without overcrowding the area. (Our house is small too). I think maybe sometimes I’m fulfilling my own girly dreams while my kid just sits back and rolls her eyes at me.

2. Twinkle Firefly Lights: Give me all the twinkle lights! We have sets scattered throughout our house. I just love them so much – they add the perfect level of ambiance to any room. These in particular are a great buy for your buck. They come in a set of two, with remotes to match! I love the remotes because I have a set hanging above my kitchen cabinets and don’t want to have to climb up there every night to turn them on/off. You can also set the dim and they have 8 different modes.  Totally work the $12 if you ask me.
I put a set in her tent and I think I’m in there more than she is at this point.
3. Makeup remover cloth: I know I’m sort of behind the times on this, but I’m so glad I finally jumped on the bandwagon. This makes washing the makeup off my face (which I’m horrible at remembering to do) so much easier. I can use it about 3 times and then I just pop it in the wash with the rest of the laundry. It’s the best $7 bucks I’ve spent in a while. 
4. Phone camera clicker: If you aren’t following Jessie Martin on Instagram, you’re missing out. I have learned so much about photography and photo editing from this sweet mama. One of the things she is a big advocate for is getting in front of the camera with your kids. This is something I don’t do nearly as often as I should, so I bought this clicker (suggested by her) to remedy that. It took me 15 seconds to connect to my phone and can be easily hidden.
Per one of her tips, you can even let your little be in charge of the picture-taking, this thing is that simple to use! 
Alright, that’s it for this round. Let me know if you own or are planning to buy any of these; I’d love to see how they work(ed) for you.

You can revisit my July favorites here.

Spread the love!
