Amazon Prime Day: Scotti’s Picks


Prime Day is heeeeeeeeere!  As someone who LOVES a good deal, Prime Day is my jam.  I wasn’t planning on buying anything . . . and then my cart quickly filled up.  I mean, some deals are too good to pass up, right?  I’ve basically got home and baby on the brain right now . . . a comfy throw, some new decor for our house, some awesome baby gear . . . I think I’m nesting.  Here are my favorites from the sale: 1. Chicco KeyFit 30 Infant Car Seat

2. Faux Fur Throw

3. Chicco KeyFit Caddy Frame Stroller

4. Modern Deerhead Ceramic Lamp with LED Bulb

5. Velvet Chair

6. Gold Round Mirror

7. Amazon Cloud Cam

8. Nespresso Vertuo Evoluo Coffee and Espresso Machine by De’Longhi

9. Philips Sonicare Diamond Clean Classic Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush with Premium Travel Case

10. Coleman Evanston 8-Person Screened Tent

11. Audible Subscription

Chicco KeyFit Caddy Frame Stroller (20% off): This is what I was missing when I had Greenlea.  I had a car seat AND a stroller, but not a stroller that I could click the car seat into.  I would have to wrangle her out of the seat into the bassinet of the stroller and it would always end up waking her up.  This is perfect to just snap and go – it’s ultralight, compact and can be folded with one hand.  Woot!

Chicco KeyFit 30 Infant Car Seat (20% off): This is a great deal on the #1-rated infant car seat in America.  It comes with removable new-born head and body supports and is for infants from 4 to 30 lbs and up to 30 inches in height. (Reviewers love it!)


Philips Sonicare Diamond Clean Classic Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush with Premium Travel Case: So Shana’s teeth are ridiculously white.  I thought for sure she was using strips or trays or something, but then I saw her using an electric toothbrush and whitening toothpaste.  With 5 different brushing modes, this one removes up to 7x more plaque than a manual toothbrush, improves gum health in only two weeks, and whitens teeth in just one week. I’m sold.

Modern Deerhead Ceramic Lamp with LED Bulb (over 20% off): LOVE.  One reviewer said the lamp was perfect for her son’s room and another said it was contemporary but would fit in with a “manly” theme as well.  I love the white with gold detail and the way they placed it on top of a stack of books in one of the pics.

Faux Fur Throw (30% off): This one is on its way to me!  I can’t get enough of faux fur throws (so soft and comfy) and love that this one is oversized.  It will look great draped over a chair or the couch and feel even better come fall!  It’s machine-washable . . . a must have for me.

Velvet Chair (50% off): Also in light grey or navy, this accent chair is gorgeous.  Throw on a pillow or blanket (the faux fur throw would look great!).  If money (or sticky toddler hands) was no object, I’d use these around our dining table.

Gold Round Mirror: I love this mirror . . . it would look awesome with the lamp above, too.  I am interior-designed-challenged, but after checking out the pics of how they decorated with this mirror I’m totally inspired.  It’s an easy way to add some cool detail to your home.

Nespresso Vertuo Evoluo Coffee and Espresso Machine by De’Longhi: I made fun of Shana when she bought her Nespresso (oh, you need fancy coffee, do you?) but then I got hooked on the actual coffee when we were visiting her.  It wasn’t long until one was on its way to us.  You will never want to go back to regular drip coffee after trying it. (Plus it’s FAST . . . and easy.)

Amazon Cloud Cam: So I bit the bullet and bought this instead of a typical baby monitor for when Baby Oja #2 gets here in a few weeks! (Gulp.)  So many people had recommended using it for that purpose and at $60 it’s MUCH less than any other monitor I was looking at!  Since we have an Echo Show, it will be easy to use this camera as a monitor (and you can use it on your phone as well).

Audible Subscription: So even if you cancel after this 3-month period for $4.95/month (66% off), you will have more than made your money back with the 3 free audio books you’ll get (which can be around $40 each).  I personally love the whispersync option that allows your audible to sync with your kindle so you can read AND listen to your books where you left off.  (I’ve read books that I didn’t want to put down and the audible option was awesome when showering, working out, etc.) I know this will come in handy when I’m nursing!

Coleman Evanston 8-Person Screened Tent: Ok, so normally I’m not really much of a “tent person,” but you HAVE to check out the reviews on this one.  Specifically, one woman put a side table, a blow-up mattress with bedding and a set of chairs and a table.  She sold me for sure . . . what an awesome way to go “adventuring” in your backyard!  This one is 65% off and completely waterproof (check out the pic of the hurricane for more proof!).
