Amazon Favorites

Back with Tanya for another list of recent purchases from Amazon. We had a month full of really fun finds. I want to do a post with some home decor spaces that we have worked on since moving in. I never really shared a tour of our house or anything. I also have an empties post coming, as well as my skincare and hair routines. I just have to take the time to finish them.

Live Beautiful

Live Beautiful: Calderone, Athena: 9781419742804: Amazon.com: Books

This book is beautiful, as the title suggests. I LOVE flipping through it to get home decor inspiration and ideas. Also, it just calms me to see these perfect spaces. There is lots of practical advice throughout as well.

Throw Blanket

Chris got this for me as part of my Mother’s Day present and it is the SOFTEST blanket!!!! I love how pretty it is, and it covers my entire body. Zoe and I can both snuggle under it comfortably. Highly recommend.


I ordered these to go above our coffee bar. I really wanted something that was large enough, so I went with the 36 inch ones. They come in a set, and there are several finishes to chose from. We have a lot of different woods in our kitchen/eat-in area/hearth room…so I went with something that complimented them all in expresso. They were handcrafted by a small company out of Florida. They sent a thank you note and the hardware to hang the shelves with. I am seriously impressed with the look and quality.

Elastic Hairband Remover

If you have kids, you know how hard it can be to removed the rubber band style hair bands from their hair. Zoe used to hate having her hair put up for dance because she knew after, there was pain and pulling hair to get it back out. This thing is genius!!! You get four of them and some hair bands in this set for less than $5. Even if you don’t have kids, those with long hair might appreciate it too!

Berry Box

I saw this on Andrea’s blog and thought I would give it a try. It holds a box of blueberries, raspberrie and half a box of strawberries all at once….it is much bigger than I was expecting! I thought it would just hold one box. I will say, the lid is really hard to snap on and off, but my fruit has lasted quite awhile in this so it is worth it to me. Plus. I like having it all washed and ready to eat. Saves me time all week.


I got a keyboard and it was malfunctional and kept pressing “g” randomly. I wouldn’t be sitting here at the computer and you could hear it dinging because the “g” was constantly being pressed. I needed a new one ASAP and I thought, why not get one that lit up???? Love it.

Veggie Platter

I have a veggie platter for entertaining, but it doesn’t have a lid. And it was huge and round. Does anyone else have the hardest time fitting round things in their fridge? I wanted something smaller, square and with a lid for our weekly veggies. When things are cut and washed and ready to go….we are so much more likely to snack on them! This was on sale when I grabbed the link for it.


Chris bought a pellet grill and decided to grab the variety pack of pellets to try. We had to leave our old grill at our other house when we moved, as our movers wouldn’t put it on their truck and we had no way of getting it over otherwise. It is nice to have a grill again besides the indoor one. If you are looking at pellet grills, this brand is great for the price. Several of Chris’s friends have purchased them too.

Carwash Gun and Supplies

Chris ordered this carwash gun. It would make an excellent Father’s Day present, along with some of the accessories we ordered to go with it. I did that for Chris a few years ago, got a bucket and filled it with car wash supplies. When Chris has sport cars, which he always does to some extent, but back when he had his 350Z and now his new car, he doesn’t like to run them through the car wash. The gun is really cool, and this bucket is special with this insert for collecting dirt at the bottom. This is the soap that you use with the gun. He also ordered this mitt, which is on sale right now! And this huge drying towel.

Comfy Princess Squad

I am pretty sure they are doing away with these dolls. I cant find them in a lot of stores anymore, and if they do, it is just one or two. And Amazon has a few of them on sale right now. Zoe became obsessed with the petite princess dolls and they quit making 2 of them before we got them. She has 2 comfy dolls like this and wants more for her birthday or Christmas…so I am starting to buy them up as I see them so we aren’t looking for them every time we go into a store “just in case.”

Home Alone Book

Speaking of Christmas, I saw this on sale for under $10 and I feel like it is more than that around Christmas time last year when I first saw it. I grabbed this up to set aside for Zoe’s elf to bring her. I know it seems early, but I always start grabbing up Christmas presents around this time every year as I see things. It keeps me from scrambling when our lives are busier around the holidays. And honestly, it spreads the money throughout the year too.

    I’m glad you got the berry box. You are right about the lid, I’ve left it off a couple times and they’ve still done well. Love that gorgeous book and blanket. Have a great short week!

    I’m all about shopping for Christmas as early as you can. There are tons of great deals, and in the case of the dolls, you never know what will be around when you want them later. I love the comfy Disney princess dolls – they’re so cute. I actually collected some of the Funko versions myself!!

    That fruit container is awesome – bummer the lid is hard to get on and off, but it sounds like it’s worth it to make your fruit last longer.
