best amazon purchases

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15 | 16 | 17

A few months ago I shared this post of my favorite Amazon purchases over the past year, and the response was so amazing! I loved hearing some of your favorite Amazon buys, and I thought the comments were really so helpful.

SO, after purchasing a lot of things this summer (big surprise), I wanted to use this week’s wish list to hash out some of my favorites as of late.

1 & 2 | I recently bought this bendy tripod that works for both my new small camera and my larger DSLR. I haven’t gotten to use it a ton yet, but I already know it’s going to be great for travel.  I’ve also shared this dog bed here, but Bailey has loved it so much. So many of you have also bought it for your pets, and I’ve loved seeing photos of your furry ones enjoying it too!

3 & 4 | Being in a cooler climate in San Francisco, I’ve noticed I’m not drinking as much water as I typically do. I bought this gigantic tumbler and I can already tell I’m drinking way more water during the day. I also recently bought these glass straws and I love, love, love them (more than my metal straws)… but they don’t fit in the openings of any of my tumblers or to-go cups, so that’s a little bit of a bummer.

5 & 6 | Living in an apartment we don’t have a balcony or patio to grill, so this has really come in handy. Christian has mastered using it and is really doing a great job with his stovetop grilling!

7 | I mentioned this on Instagram recently, but if you want your dishes to really sparkle, using this product will change your life. Every time I unload the dishwasher I am so amazed! It makes my dishes look brand new.

8 & 9 | Two of my favorite bloggers recommended these two products, so you know I bought them asap. Helena of Brooklyn Blonde uses these cloths to wash her face and says it’s a game-changer, and Courtney of Kerrently says this purple shampoo is the best bang for your buck!

10 & 16 | I purchased these heels and they are unbelievable dupes. So gorgeous – I can’t wait to wear them! I also recently ordered these slides and can’t wait to get them in.

11 | We use these instead of dryer sheets and they do a great job and are more economically friendly.

12 | I so desperately wanted this plant for my birthday, but sadly they don’t ship to California. If they do ship to your state, get on it girl!

13 | I bought this popcorn popper a while ago because it takes up less space than an appliance (which I also love but storage is very precious to us these days).  It works great and collapses for storage.

14 | I ordered these leggings and love that they have zipper ankles, side pockets and a little zipper pocket in the back. They’re really comfortable and perfect for walking Bailey when I have my phone, keys, etc.

15 | What you’ve heard is true, this foot mask is amazing. I would warn you not to do it before a vacation though because your feet actually peel for quite a while!

17 | You’ve seen this patch on my denim jacket here, here and here, but it really makes such a statement. I love an oversized varsity patch!

Tell me if you like these kinds of practical purchase posts and if you’ve bought any of these items before. I secretly love reading random but resourceful posts like this, so I’d love your feedback!

AND, of course if you have any great Amazon steals, you know I want to hear. Thank you so much for reading and sharing – XO –

  1. Hi Kathleen!
    Thanks so much for this post! I loved the last Amazon post and reading the comments! I bought quite a few of the items recommended by some of the other ladies! I can’t wait to try some of these items. Thank God for Amazon Prime!

    Here are two recent purchases that I’m loving.
    Skinerals Padded Self Tanning Back…
    I’d like to consider myself a self tanning pro. I just can’t always get help doing my back. This works really well!

    These leggings were recommended in an Instagram story by none other than Southern Charm’s Katherine Dennis. They look much more expensive and I received a ton of compliments. I’m buying a second pair.
    Ginasy Women’s Slim Wet Look High Waist Thin Faux Leather Leggings – Medium

    Looking forward to other suggestions! I did some damage the last time.

    Thanks Again!

  2. I LOVE these kind of posts! I’ve purchased from amazon a Felt Letter Board that I love, jade roller, beauty blender travel case, tongue cleaner, yoga mat, silk pillow case (much cheaper than the ones from the nsale). Keep these posts comin!

  3. I have the exact same plant that I had ordered off of Amazon a few months ago and it’s beautiful and is doing well ! 🙂

  4. I like these types of posts! Being the nerd that I am, I’m most excited about the wool dryer balls and the popcorn maker (genius)! I like making my own popcorn and was doing it on the stove in a Dutch oven (#laborintensive). Also, I’m interested in the muslin face towels. I’m not bought-in to think they will change my skincare routine much but they look soft and, since I have sensitive skin, terry cloth face towels can be a little harsh.

    Thanks for the post!

    P.S. Did you mean to say the dryer balls are more environmentally friendly? I can see how they could also be considered more economically friendly (saving on dryer sheets) but just curious!

  5. I don’t really leave comments (and maybe never have before now), but I love the Amazon finds posts! I ordered the memory foam pillow and love it.

  6. I love the post and I love your instagram. I actually started following you on there before reading your blog, which I now love.

    If you are looking for a tumbler to fit the glass straws, try searching for the Zak Designs brand of insulted tumblers. I picked one up at Target, but they have them on Amazon as well. The glass straws fit perfect in the opening.

    And I agree, I love the glass straws way more than my metal ones.

  7. I’m obsessed with Parsley Plus kitchen spray! Your kitchen will smell like an herb garden!

  8. LOVE this roundup! Had to save some of the links so I can go back and purchase later I’ve been curious about your denim jacket patches, so I love that you linked your initial one! Also been desperately needing a pedicure or foot mask and literally thought about it tonight so that foot mask got my major attention

  9. I love posts like this. I’m always happy to find something useful to purchase from Amazon. I even shared some of your items with friends these were awesome. I would enjoy more posts like it. Sometimes I personally cannot spend big bucks on another coat, pair of jeans, you name it. But I could always use a better way to dry not clothes or a new eco friendly straw! Thank you for sharing!
