I think Amazon sent out a secret mass-memo to the blogging world this week since it seems like everyone is sharing their recent purchases and finds! Doesn’t bug me in the slightest. It’s so fun to see what everyone is buying, as well as any new gems that you just have to have. 😉 Amazon is nothing if not a black hole that’s ridiculously easy to get lost in! So on that note, I’m sharing my own new Amazon finds plus a few wish list items.
What I’ve purchased …
+ Acrylic bookends. Real exciting purchase, I know. 😉 I was looking for something to help prop up my vinyl collection on the new shelving unit in our front living room, but I didn’t want anything showy that distracted from the albums themselves. These are GREAT. A super quality plastic/acrylic material that just blends in with the surroundings.
+ Acrylic hair clips. I’m trying to get more creative with my hair on a daily basis, so I’m pretty excited to add these clips to some of my ‘dos.
+ Lumbar throw pillow cover. Okay, why are pillow covers this size/shape incredibly hard to find?! Thank goodness for you, Amazon. Anyway, these give a fun pop to our family room chairs and should carry well into the warmer months, too.
+ AmazonBasics 1-inch curtain rod with cap finials. It sounds stupid, but quality curtain rods are hard to come by. We needed a new one for our dining room window, and I’m not sure I’ll ever buy a different curtain rod again! The style and durability are better than anything we’ve purchased in-store, and the price is competitive, too.
What’s on my wish list …
+ Reusable straws. Honestly, there’s no reason for any of us to use plastic straws anymore! It’s great that these include silicone tops so we don’t have to put our teeth directly on metal.
+ Quilted crossbody bag. It always surprises me how often I see otherwise neutral outfits styled with a red bag. My closet and wardrobe definitely could use the fun pop of color!
+ Classic square sunglasses. Round-shaped sunnies usually flatter my face best, but for the price I want to give these a try. They still look a tad oversized, which I prefer, but with that classic wayfarer look.
+ Bar earrings with chain. I’m really into this trendy-style right now! I almost exclusively only wear stud earrings, and that can sometimes feel boring. These add the perfect amount of extra to make them feel special!
