Amazon Prime Purchases (And What I Read) in February 2023

I hope March has brought good things to you so far. It’s time again to link up with Tanya and her Prime Purchases link up.

I’m also sharing what I read in February. Both my Amazon shopping and my reading have slowed to a crawl this year. You guys have said you like both posts so I’m combining what would be two shorts posts into one. Check out the reader survey results for more on what you guys said you like and need.

Amazon Prime Purchases for February 2023

The Happy Planner Sticker Book- Happy Seasons

No matter how many stickers I buy, I never seem to have the right ones for my planner! In particular, I’m always missing stickers for holidays. I purchased this Happy Planner/ Happy Seasons pack so I would have the major holidays covered.

24 Sheets Daily Planners Holiday Seasonal Planner Sticker 

I also purchased these holiday stickers. They are small but perfect for filling in small spaces in my planner that need a little extra.

Fiskars 9115 Smooth Action Anvil Pruner

February brought warmer temperatures for us and weeds and yardwork. I needed to cut back some plants and shrubs and do some pruning. My old pair of pruners is broken and I kept pinching my hand with them. I took a break and ordered two new pair right in the middle of my pruning one weekend. This one is for pruning dead branches. The other one is better for living branches that need pruning.

Kenra Volume Spray 25 55% | Super Hold Finishing & Styling Hairspray

It was also time for me to restock my favorite hairspray. It holds well but doesn’t build up. I can still brush my hair and go without washing my hair for three or four days.

Vitamin B12 by Nature’s Bounty, Quick Dissolve Vitamin Supplement

I’ve been taking B12 for a couple of months and it was time to restock. B12 is supposed to be a great counter balance to stress and cortisol production. Cortisol can cause you to hold on to belly fat. I have a layer I need to shed. The B12 hasn’t melted any of it away, but I do have a little more energy.

I’ve got my favorite lash primer, eyebrow pencil and one of my favorite eyeliners on subscribe and save, so those were shipped out at the end of February too.

What I Read in February

The Brethren by John Grisham

Three former judges are serving time in a federal prison, and serving up justice to the inmates in mock bench trials. They are also running a pen pal scheme on homosexual men, extorting cash from them to keep their secrets. Their scheme crossed paths with a presidential candidate and things get interesting for them and everyone on the outside.

This was comical and entertaining, but with twists that keep your attention. I read a hard back copy and listened to parts on Audible. 5 stars

Atomic Habits by James Clear

An interesting read on how to start habits, set goals for those habits and how to put in place systems to make them work. If you have never read anything on goal setting, it’s a good book. If you have read something on the topic before, it might not be as interesting to you. I listened on Audible but would like to review it in print to better grasp some of the concepts and points. 4 stars
