New Amazon Purchases | Hits & Misses

Hey! Happy Tuesday. I’m popping in quick today to share some new Amazon purchases – one of my favorite posts to both read and share! I’ve bought some big hits and definite misses, so hopefully you can find something to work for you and know what to avoid!

Magnolia Table by Joanna Gaines. I pre-ordered this cookbook way back when – this is typically how I manage to get the best prices on books/cookbooks – and it finally was released today! I don’t have the book in my hands yet, but I’m already excited to flip through it and discover some new recipes.

Remington 1″ Curling Iron. Wow, this is one of the worst curling irons I’ve EVER used. Remington tools are usually my go-to for the quality and affordable price point, but maybe this is a knockoff? The clamp didn’t even hold my hair around the barrel. Returned.

Mpow Flame Bluetooth Headphones. These were a birthday gift for Ryan a couple weeks back, and he’s super happy with them! He’s been trying to get back into a regular workout routine, and wireless headphones are a must for the gym.

PIL’ATEN Hydrating 24K Gold Collagen Eye Masks. I’m not really sure if these do anything for my under eye circles, but my skin does feel hydrated after use! I like that these only need to be worn for a half hour instead of overnight like previous eye masks I’ve used. A good extra step to prep for makeup.

Revlon Straightening Heated Hair Brush. A traditional flat iron can be too severe on my hair, so the idea of a heated straightening brush seemed right up my alley. Kind of like my heated round brush but for everyday use. Unfortunately, this just didn’t work for me. My guess is that my hair is too short for this brush to make any sort of difference. Maybe give it a go if your hair is shoulder-length or longer – the concept is still a good one!

Amazon Fire Stick. This was a surprise from Ryan to use on our bedroom TV for days when I’m not feeling well or want to work from our room! So sweet, right? It won’t become a habit, and we’re not the type of people to watch TV from bed, but it’s nice to have the option if we want.

What Amazon purchases have you made lately that I should add to my next shopping cart?

    I’ll be anxious to hear how you like the Magnolia Table cookbook, I don’t know how the woman finds time to cook with everything else she does! I’ve been mostly trolling Amazon for shoes lately with not a lot of luck! I’ve bought and returned more pairs than I can count, lol!

    I’ve been looking into Bluetooth headphones for Brett, so good to know Ryan likes these! We recently added a tv in our bedroom with a roku, and it’s actually helped us get to bed earlier, ironically enough! I’m also always on the hunt for a good cookbook, so this one sounds like a winner to me! Is there anything that girl can’t do?!

      Right?! She seriously is super woman. Ryan really likes those headphones, so definitely have Brett try them out for a budget-friendly option!

    That heated brush sounds neat. We use Amazon so much it is kind of embarrassing.
