What’s On My Amazon Wish List + a Couple Purchased Duds

Well, it’s that time of year when Amazon purchases are plenty and arriving on my doorstep almost daily. What can I say? Between holiday shopping – both for our home and gifts for others – plus sneaking in a few extras for myself, there’s nothing easier! So today I’m sharing what’s on my Amazon wish list, plus a few already-purchased duds that I really don’t recommend.

What's On My Amazon Wish List + A Couple Purchased Duds
It’s no secret that I’m a big advocate for Amazon fashion finds (as recently evidenced here and here). I turn to a lot of bloggers for their recommendations in this department. Lindsay has me wishing for this cozy pullover, and Gina shared the cutest button-detail sweatshirt. Both seem like must-haves for our cold Wisconsin weather!

Speaking about the weather, my (undiagnosed) seasonal affective disorder hit hard and furious thanks to the time change. In addition to taking a Vitamin D supplement, I’m thinking about giving light therapy a try. Something nicknamed a happy light seems pretty promising.

Wouldn’t this organizer be cute in an office or command-center area?

It has been a few years since Finny had a new Christmas/winter collar, and let me tell you that this dog lives for a new collar. He struts around and everything. I think this snowflake buffalo plaid bow tie would look pretty dapper.

If you’re into crocheting or any sort of crafting, a pom pom maker is a must-have. For how inexpensive these are, I was skeptical and I did have to watch a video on how to use it. But, it’s the easiest thing ever and I highly recommend!

Now, for a couple duds

Remember when I mentioned that I wanted to try a root touch-up powder? Well, I did, and it didn’t go so well. In theory, I think this is a great idea, but only if you’re a brunette or have dark hair. Trying to put blonde-colored powder over dark roots just doesn’t work.

I’m on the hunt for inexpensive flameless candles, and this pack is a no. They’re not crap, but they’re not good either. Very skinny design and look pretty cheap/fake. If you know of good flameless candles that aren’t the expensive Mirage brand, do share!

What’s on your Amazon wish list? Do you do a lot of holiday shopping online?

    • It’s supposed to help your mood if you struggle this time of year, like I do. I’ll report back if I try it.

    I am a big fan of the flameless candles from World Market. I have a bunch of them in various sizes, and they even have timers, too!

@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
