Excited to introduce a new monthly series! I love discovering other people’s Amazon favorites and don’t always have a reason to share the random gadgets and things I order, but I thought this could be a fun way to share some of the things I bought on Amazon over the month.

Kids Yeti Tumbler // Our family loves Yeti Tumblers since they’re so durable, so I got this cute mini water bottle for Jack to take to daycare! I love that it’s dishwasher safe and has a leak and shatter-resistant straw cap, ideal for toddlers on the move.

Gingham Baby Pajamas // How cute is this gingham baby pajama set? It’s under $20 and comes in sizes 12M-5T. It’s 100% cotton and super soft. 

Portable Charger // I needed a new portable charger for our Copenhagen trip and went with these since they had over 65k 5-star reviews and came as a pack of two for under $20. They’re lightweight and easy to pop into a bag, making them great for traveling. I like that they charged my phone quickly and held enough battery for two complete charges.

Travel Pillow // Another Copenhagen purchase that was super handy on the long flight! This memory foam travel pillow has a washable cover and includes a kit with a 3D sleep mask and earplugs plus, it folds into a small travel bag and doesn’t take up a ton of space in your bag.

Play the Forest School Way Book // I got this activity book to help with our 1000 Hours Outside challenge. Although Jack would happily spend the entire day outside– regardless of weather, this book has been a fun way for us to mix up playtime with some different outdoor activities that help kids engage with nature.

Space Cows Book // Jack loves reading books together. He definitely has his favorites but also loves new books, so I ordered a couple of beginner-reader books. Although Jack won’t be reading for another few years, I hope they’ll be books for him to “grow into.”

Vegetable Slicer // I finally caved and bought this vegetable slicer after seeing it on TikTok. Is it necessary? No… Do I love it? Yes.

Kindle Strap //I’m a big fan of kindle gadgets! This one comes with two kindle straps for comfortable reading and protects your kindle from falling out of your hands. 

New Balance 547 Sneaker // These are the most comfortable shoes! I wore them all around Copenhagen and didn’t have any issues. I was looking for an everyday shoe that could go with everything but wasn’t a white sneaker, and I can say that I am obsessed.

Crew Socks // If you’ve been following along with my sock experimentation on Instagram, I was looking for a cute pair of socks to wear with jeans and sneakers, and these were a popular suggestion. I’m a big fan and have been wearing them a lot!

we are just coming out of the “beginner readers” in this house, if you want to go in that direction, can’t beat Cynthia Rylant’s, they are the best. My favorite of hers is the Mr. Putter and Tabby series, my son is a huge Henry and Mudge fan, and my daughter loves Poppleton. Honestly, if you don’t have her books, I’ve never found a dud: picture books, beginner readers, beginner chapter books, actual chapter books. All great.


We have a similar vegetable chopper and I love using it. It is so convenient!

Hi Carly, not sure why but maybe I’ve been blocked from your instagram account? Could you review and hopefully it wasn’t intentional! @c.m.dudek
Thanks I’ve been following for a few years now!


Thanks for the idea on the chopper! I like that it comes with multiple blades. A question about socks. What no-show socks do you all find work best with tennis shoes?


The vegetable chopper is a necessity in my house. It makes my meal prep much faster.
