Ding dong…one sec, I’ll be right back…
Ok, sorry about that, that was just Amazon popping by with my daily delivery. Hi I’m Alison and I’m an Amazon addict. It’s true, more days than not the Amazon delivery person is pulling up to our door to deliver goodies to our house. Amazon has truly revolutionized the way that I shop. Before I make even a smallest purchase, I go online to see if I can get it through our Prime membership. We have an Echo or Echo dot in most rooms in our house and ordering is as easy as shouting out “Alexa…”
I thought it would be fun today to share with you some of my all time favorite purchases and finds on Amazon that have made my life easier, more fun or better in some way.
All Time Favorite Amazon Finds
Household/Every Day Life
This rack was originally a purchase I made to do Youtube videos but it ended up becoming an organizing staple so much so that my husband wants one too! I use it to plan outfits for vacations, keep my blog photo shoots organized and to hang clothes while I’m ironing.
It’s tough to admit that I can’t survive without a pair of readers these days but it’s true. I have them stashed all over my house, in my purse and in the car. When I saw these ultra stylish pairs on Amazon for just $10, I had to have them in clear and black.
I’ve been traveling a lot more this year and my MacBook has started to show some wear and tear. This rubberized case in a pink marble print also comes with a bonus keyboard cover in pink.
This could potentially be the weirdest thing on my list but I swear by it! Years of hunching over my laptop have done my posture no favors. I pop this posture corrector on for about an hour a day and it helps me to stay in correct alignment all day long.
If I had to pick just one thing on this list that was essential to my daily sanity it would be our iRobot Roomba. With three dogs and two cats, fur tumbleweeds on the floor are a part of daily life. Our Roomba runs every morning and all I have to do is remember to empty it out. Pet hair problem solved. We love it so much that we now have two of them!
Our family is kind of crazy for coffee. When we got back from Italy two years ago, we were all craving the delicious espressos and lattes we had there. I did a little research on how to have them at home and kept coming back to the Nespresso Vertuo Coffee and Espresso Machine. We bought one and have been hooked ever since. Every cup is absolutely perfect. In the summer months, we have them over ice. Our favorite pods are the Hazelino flavor, SOOOOO good!
My hair stylist used this smoothing lotion the last time I got a haircut and I just wanted to smell my hair all day. Not only does it smell heavenly, it smooths my frizzies perfectly, adds shine and a little goes a long way.
So this purchase was the result of getting impatient with the process of growing my bangs out but it turned out to be a whole lotta fun! I tried hair extensions for the first time in my life and have been really happy with the results. These hair extensions are so silky smooth and they match my hair color perfectly. I got the 14″ set in Medium Brown. You can check out my Youtube video of the application process here.
I’m such a fan of this product that they should be paying me to be a spokesperson! It’s seriously transformed my skin. It’s brighter, clearer and it truly glows. Just get it, you won’t be sorry.
Two Morroccanoil products made my list. This mask is my go to for a weekly hydrating treatment, especially in the summer months. I also love taking it with us to the beach and slathering it on my wet hair and putting it in a bun at the start of the day. It keeps my hair from getting dry and crispy and leaves it soft and smelling amazing.
A few weeks ago I was asked if there was one item that you could buy to update your husband’s wardrobe, what would it be? Hands down it’s this pair of mens Adidas Cloudfoam Advantage Clean Sneakers. Craig has them in white and they give all of his casual outfits a modern, updated look.
The past two summers were rebuilding seasons for my swimwear collection. I have a hard time finding the right fit, especially in bottoms. I want something with fuller coverage and that can be really hard to find. La Blanca swimsuits just work for me. I’ve bought four of them in the past two years and couldn’t be happier with them. They hold up really well and come in some really flattering styles. Here are the two pieces I most recently bought. These swim bottoms were only $9.99!
If you watch any of my videos closely, chances are you’ll see this Apple watch band make an appearance. The champagne leather matches everything! It’s super affordable too – just $12.90.
