Cool Items You Didn’t Know You Need

As a mom, I feel like I want to be prepared. Whenever I have to run errands and plan on being away from home for a few hours, I like to carry a few essentials, including a phone charger or a portable phone charger in a tote bag. If my son is with me, I like to carry snacks and even a bottle of water. We gathered a few cool items you didn’t know you need! These items are perfect for any home!

Life can be unpredictable and unexpected. If you want to be prepared or just looking to make your life a little easier, we are so excited to share what we found! 

First up, the weather can certainly be unpredictable! It’s nice to be prepared and have umbrellas available. 

Stay dry in style

Black Tie Anniversary Totes Umbrella

Earlier this year, I found myself without an umbrella. I ended up buying two different types of umbrellas for my son and I to use. We wait outside for the school bus every morning and afternoon, so when needed, I wanted to have umbrellas on hand! They both have been reliable for us. 

With the holiday season coming up, a must-have accessory for everyone is a stylish umbrella! In 2020, totes® celebrates their 50th anniversary of their first compact umbrella introduced to North America! To celebrate, totes® released a limited-edition collection of elegant umbrellas! 

I was sent the Black Tie Anniversary compact umbrella. I am so excited and prepared for rain with my sleek umbrella! 

Blue Light Blocking

PROSPEK Blue Light Blocking Glasses in Cateyes and Artist with boxes

Years ago, I got LASIK eye surgery just so I wouldn’t have to wear glasses. I disliked having to wear glasses just to see far away. Fast forward to the present, I love my new blue light blocking glasses from Spektrum Glasses.

Honestly, I never thought about blue light blocking glasses until a fellow blogger mentioned she was going to try them. After that, I decided to look further into them. 

I know I’ve been having trouble staying asleep. I’d go to bed fairly early since we do get up early in the morning. I would find myself waking up between midnight and 3am! It usually took me a few hours to fall back asleep or I’d fall asleep about an hour before my alarm went off. It was so stressful. I thought my sleeplessness was due to the stress of everything I am dealing with. However, since I started wearing my blue light blocking glasses, I’ve noticed it is easier for me to fall back asleep when I wake up in the middle of the night. I have also noticed less eye strain! If anything, I’ve noticed a difference and I hope to see many more improvements. 

PROSPEK Blue Light Blocking Glasses in Cateyes and Artist

I chose the PROSPEK Artist and PROSPEK Cateyes and just adore both of them. I wanted two pairs, one to keep at my workspace to use during the day and another to keep on my nightstand to use at night. 


The PROSPEK Artist frames sit on my nightstand. I like to wear them as I watch television and use my phone. While they are not my favorite pair, I still love how lightweight and stylish they are. I love the tortoise shell pattern


The PROSPEK Cateyes sit at my workspace and I use them throughout the day as I do my blogging and use my phone. I also watch my shows on my laptop, so these come in handy! The PROSPEK Cateyes are my favorite frames. I just love how chic and cute they are. The pop of color on the inside is fun too!
