My Last Five Amazon Buys

Okay, let’s get real – there’s few of us left that don’t live and swear by Amazon Prime. $100 a year is a small price to pay for unlimited free two-day shipping! I’m pretty sure 80% of our household shopping is delivered straight to our doorstep at this point. I absolutely love when Amanda shares her recent Amazon purchases – there’s so much out there that it’s nice to hear real-life reviews! So, I’m taking a page out of her book and sharing my last five Amazon buys. Be warned – not all of this is glamorous/fun stuff!

My Last Five Amazon Buys
 
1. Bluetooth Selfie-Stick and Tripod. Never thought the day would come when I would order a selfie stick! I specifically ordered this one since it also converts into a tripod – great for shooting video tutorials! (Coming at ya soon!) Plus, I’m willing to swallow my pride and pack this for our beach vacation in October. Especially since we’ll have new phones by then with the upgraded camera.

2. Ring Light for iPhone Camera. Again, this is to help with some of those video tutorials I hope to do in the near future. YouTube vlogger’s swear by their fancy expensive ring light, so I figured this is the same thing but for a phone. Worth a try.

3. Gilmore Girls cookbook. This was a Prime Day steal! I was able to snag two copies, one for me and one for my mom for her birthday. It’s the cutest cookbook, perfect for any fan of the show. There’s some legit good recipes in there that I can’t wait to try.

4. Merrick dog food. Nothing but the best for my Finny! We’ve always been willing to pay a little extra for quality dog food (Finn is a REALLY picky eater), but it has been great to find the best price on Merrick food on Amazon. It saves us some money every few months, and it comes right to our door. #winning

5. La Roche-Posay Effaclar Clarifying Solution Toner. It has been a year since I started this skincare routine, and I’m still going strong. This is a great toner for sensitive skin. It doesn’t irritate or dry out my skin too much.

Like I said earlier, are these all glamorous? Certainly not – I’m looking at you dog food. BUT, my last five Amazon buys prove that you can find/purchase practically anything your heart desires. That’s probably not always the best thing … verdict is still out. 😉

What are some of your recent Amazon purchases?

    This is so interesting! Definitely need the GG cookbook! My last five purchases are dishwasher detergent, muffin tins, an essential oil diffuser, and two tools that my husband ordered!

  3. Minus the dog food I think I need all of these. Are you loving that selfie light? I have been eyeing one for a little while now!

    • I plan to test out the selfie light this weekend! Obviously it’s not one of those super fancy ones like YouTube vloggers use, but I love that I can just clip it onto my phone to use it for anything and anywhere. I’ll report back!

  4. I know the daughter of the owner of Merrick dog food. They are the NICEST family ever. Such amazing people. You should feel so good supporting them and feeding him their food.

    • What?! That’s so neat! Finn always has been a picky eater, and this is the first brand of dog food we’ve tried that he actually devours it like a normal dog. I love that it’s so good for him, too!

  5. I don’t know how I would survive without my amazon prime! I actually have been looking into those ring lights for the same purpose! Gotta have the right lighting for those videos!

  8. I think I NEED that cookbook! Prime always gets me in trouble, but I think I need to utilize it more for things I typically shop at Walmart. We’ve started getting our cat food there, too!

  9. Amazon really does have everything, and I don’t think that I could live with Prime! I had no idea that there was a Gilmore Girls cookbook! I need to check it out!

    Oh, thank goodness for Amazon Prime! There probably isn’t a week ( ok, sometimes a day, haha!) that goes by without an Amazon box at our door. I’m excited to explore my new Gilmore Girls cookbook!

@Disneyland is full of hidden scenes and little details. This area in particular, right around the corner from Fantasyland, was my favorite of them all! Maybe because we were there early before the crowds came pouring in, or maybe I was taking a moment to be nostalgic ... either way this was the first time in a few months that I felt happy and 100% myself. Perhaps that’s the magic of Disney that Walt always talked about.  #adultsatdisney #disneyland

  • I can’t stop obsessing over this book! It’s Behind-the-Music meets Almost Famous, and I had to constantly remind myself that I wasn’t reading an interview in Rolling Stone Magazine. I just love when a book comes around that makes me fall further in love with reading than I already am. Have you read it? What are you #currentlyreading? #bookworm #bookstagram
