This morning I read a meme that said “when you accidentally spend $12 + $5 shipping instead of $17 + free shipping.” I thought it was hilarious but Brett didn’t catch the joke. Today I’m sharing 10 new amazon favorites that I’ve purchased recently. A portable UV phone sanitizer, monochromatic kids cups and the pre-workout I use are just a few of the gems on this list of new Amazon favorites!
10 Recent Amazon Favorites
Bandolier Phone Case:
Since my phone accidentally ended up in our pool, I upgraded to the iPhone 11 Pro. Without skipping a beat I knew I needed my exact same phone case back. I have used this phone case for a couple years now and absolutely love it. You can hook on straps to wear it as a crossbody, store your ID and credit card in the back of it, and can also purchase the pouch add on. I always keep the pouch and strap in my car with a mask, lip balm, and anything else I might need. I’ll also throw my keys into the pouch as well. I can’t say enough good things about them. There are different case colors and strap options.
Stainless steel polish:
Let me start off by saying I hate cleaning. But after watching someone post about this cleaner on Instagram it seemed so satisfying and easy so I decided to try it out. (Disclaimer our fridge and oven were looking pretty rough… oops.) It comes with the cloth and all I have to say is WOW. Our fridge looks like new with barely any effort at all. I love this stuff and wish I had more stainless steel surfaces to clean. It has 4800 reviews with a 4.5 star average, so I know I’m not the only crazy person excited about this polish. Give it a try and let me know if you agree! Note: I noticed their packaging changed this week but it is the same product!
Ring Light: *Clip the coupon for 30% off!*
I don’t know how I ever survived without this as a blogger! I’m able to put my phone in and have perfect lighting while recording, using self timer for photos, and during brand zoom meetings. It has a few different light settings to give you the perfect lighting. I’ll admit I was hesitant because I thought I was going to have to drop a couple hundred dollars for a good ring light but the reviews convinced me. There are 13,000 reviews with a 4.5 average. It is pretty compact when the tripod is collapsed and comes with a little drawstring bag. It is definitely a good beginner ring light. As far as higher end professional studio grade ring lights many people suggest this one.
These are a great mask alternative and are easy to slip on and off without dropping your mask. These are sold in a 3 or 6 pack and actually look cut when worn around your neck with activewear!
UV Phone Sanitizer ($40 off right now!):
Have you ever thought about all of the places you’ve set your phone? It is SO gross to think about! If it fits in the sanitizer, you can sanitize it. I’ve sanitized keys, Brett’s wallet, my phone case, my phone, and masks. It is the perfect size to stash in your car or to carry in your purse or gym bag. Studies show that it can kill up to 99.9% of bacteria and viruses at the DNA level.
These bring me back to my days as a gymnast! We would do so much work with ankle weights. They help so much with toning and I love incorporating them into my workout. Strap them on your ankles or wrists! I even sometimes put them on my ankles during ab workouts for an added challenge. I love that this brand has pretty colors. I use the 3lb, and they also come in a 1.5. If you don’t have workout equipment, these are a great piece to start out with! They barely take up any space, and we threw them in the car on our road trip last week. If you search ankle weight workout on YouTube, so many workouts will pull up for inspiration. (I will be recording an ankle weight workout this week!)
This is the preworkout I have been taking lately. I do the mango madness flavor and use about 1.5 scoops. It also comes in blue raspberry ice, watermelon, and strawberry kiwi. If you’re new to preworkouts after a few tries you will figure out the amount that works for you. It helps me get the most out of my workouts. It doesn’t make me jittery, but it does help me stay focused and energized. Without it I typically feel like my energy and motivation levels drastically drop half way through my workouts.
How adorable is this backpack!? Michael needed a new backpack and it was time to upgrade from a cheesy backpack to one that looked like dads. (His request.) Although it’s not named a kids backpack, it is such a great size for him. I might steal it on occasion. It comes in a ton of different colors. Play around with the styles and check pricing because I’ve noticed pricing jumps around quite often and every color has it’s own price. (This is now more expensive than it was last week.)
Hair Claw Clips:
Ok I know these are old school but I forgot how convenient these clips are! The color is better in person and they have a soft matte feel. I really like these for quickly clipping back my hair.
Monochromatic kids dishes:
It all started with the cups. A friend of mine had all black cups and I looked them up the moment I left her house. I went with the gray and black combo and WOW. I LOVED ditching all of our old rainbow colored cups. So naturally I decided we needed the plates and bowls to match. This may make me sound crazy but even my dishwasher looks so much prettier when it’s fully loaded. Oh and I probably love these more than the average person because we have all of our cabinet doors off of our cabinets for the time being.
