One of my new goals has been to post more consistently here on my blog to be a better resource for answering any of y’all’s outfit questions! I think the best way to do that is to post a weekly roundup of the outfits I wear in more detail than I put on my Instagram. I hope it’s helpful and feel free to leave a comment if you have any other questions!
Amazon is the single greatest invention of our generation. Dramatic? Imagine, you’re on your last roll and desperately need toilet paper, but you don’t have any time this week to even THINK about going to the store. A couple of taps on your computer and BAM, an hour later someone is standing in your doorway handing you toilet paper and you’re on the floor crying of pure joy… Lol okay maybe not but you get the idea. It’s amazing and it’s a problem sometimes. The convenience that we are blessed with is one that I am FOREVER grateful for.
As I was ordering my usual Amazon purchases this week, I decided I would share with y’all what’s on my regular go-to list! Without further adieu, here are my Amazon Must-Haves. (Don’t worry I’ll spare you the toilet paper and paper towels I use. 😂)
Amazon Must Haves:
Flower Pastie Covers: Gentlemen, (if there are any of you out there) no need for y’all to have these. I mean unless you really want to, but this one is for the ladies! I live in these. Seriously. I wear them almost every single day. They are a must. Forever. This is my favorite brand that I regularly order. These are also perfect in the summer when you are wearing tanks, bodysuits, strapless tops, etc. and also perfect on date night if you wear a dress that you don’t want the straps showing in. Granted I have zero chest, so keep that in mind when purchasing!
Theraplex Moisturizer: I’ve talked about this before on my Instagram and here, but this stuff is amazing. It’s a full body (including face and hands), hypoallergenic eczema lotion. I use it on my face every single day. It’s light but moisturizing, has zero smell, and is perfect for sensitive skin. This has never broken me out or irritated my skin. This bottle is also big so it lasts awhile!
Aquaphor Chapstick: This is the best lip moisturizer out there and it’s a classic. I put this on every single night before bed and every morning after I moisturize my face. Couldn’t live without it. No other chapstick compares.
That brings me to Aquaphor: I love this stuff. I get THE dryest, cracked, painful hands in the winter and nothing has done a better job at easing my discomfort and dryness like this stuff. I put it on every night before bed and let it work it’s magic overnight.
Vitamin C + Hyaluronic acid serum: I love this serum. I’ve been ordering it since 2016! One of my friends used it (I think was recommended by the dermatologist) and I tried it and had to have it! It helps my skin look more even and dewy!
Trader Joe’s Vitamin E Oil: In love with this stuff, especially in the dryer months. I only use it at night when my skin needs a little pick-me-up but it does wonders a moisturizing and leaving your skin feeling hydrated and glowy! Don’t be alarmed by the greasiness, it will soak in overnight and you can wash off any excess oil when you wash your face in the morning!
Books: I order so many books on Amazon. I don’t remember the last time I even bought a book at a bookstore. Jordan orders books from Amazon multiple times a week (not exaggerating he is a reading fiend.) I’ll share with y’all some of my current favorite books here!
8. Phone cases + pop sockets. Stores inflate their phone case prices SO MUCH. How much can it really cost you for a 2cm thick piece of plastic… Cray cray!! I ALWAYS order mine off Amazon. I’ll link a few of my faves here.
9. Lavender lotion. I discovered this lotion from my boss and I am HOOKED. It’s so good. It’s lightweight but does a really great job at hydrating your skin and it smells amazing. I moisturize my body every time I shower and I always look forward to it because I love this stuff, especially at night before bed because the smell is so relaxing!
10. Spark. Y’all, this stuff is amazing. It’s a vitamin fruit punch drink with caffeine in it. I sub this for coffee some mornings or I drink it in the afternoon when I’m starting to feel my 2 pm wall. I have used it since college and love it! It’s pricey, but the can lasts for about a month for me!
