Guess who’s back… back again! Can you even sing that in anything but an Eminem voice?! Me either.
I’m excited to bring back Amazon faves for May, a few days early in April. Had to sneak it in this month because April was the month I launched the series in last year. I took a break in February and March to birth Auggie and adjust to life with 4 kids at home, but I’m happy to be BACK!
Each week I share 3 things (or more!) I love from Amazon on my Instagram Stories – and I’ll post them here so you’ll always be able to reference them!
WEEK 3 – AMAZON FAVES
I was SO tired of buying a new cheapie bubble machine every year, only to have it crap out halfway through the summer after I replaced the batteries 352346 times. We’ve had this one for a few months and it can be either battery-powered or plugged into an outlet. Has 2 speeds, too. Great reviews – we’ve been loving ours! // shop it here
Brush on sunscreen is a great addition to your sun protection arsenal, especially with young kids. I’ve used powdered sunscreen for years and recently discovered this less expensive brand on Amazon. Brush it on your/your kids’ scalps or keep it in your makeup bag to easily brush on SPF. Reef-safe, 30 SPF, comes in translucent or slightly tan, free of parabens, PABA, and phthalates. // shop it here
Black Biker Shorts
Wasn’t sure I was a biker shorts kinda gal, but they’re basically leggings for summer, so I’m here for it! Under $20, TTS, slight compression, good medium length – these are a win! // shop them here // pocket version here (trying these next!)
WEEK 2 – AMAZON FAVES
Echo Dot Kids
I got one of these for the kids for Christmas and one wasn’t enough – we now have one in both the big kids’ rooms and one in the basement. The kids Alexa is filtered to only have kid-friendly content, has a 2 year no-questions-asked worry-free guarantee, comes with a 1-year FreeTime Unlimited subscription. And it’s on sale right now!
Alexa plays music, answers questions, reads stories, tells jokes, time, the weather, etc. You can also set it up to call or text a pre-approved group of people (post on how to do that coming soon!) // shop it here
Black Cat Eye Sunglasses
These are a great pair of cat-eye sunnies that basically cover half your face, which I’m V into for a multitude of reasons. I’d get the 2 pack, one tortoise, one black – the price cannot be beat! // shop them here
Salt & Vinegar Almonds
Where have these been all my life?! I love salt & vinegar chips but am trying to eat more protein, less carbs. These are the best, so so tasty and the cheapest when you order them from Amazon. This may be the ONLY thing I’ve ever recommended with a perfect 5 star rating of 2k+ reviews, the best of which reads: “Once you pop the first one of these into your mouth a surge of electricity will flow through your body as you experience something from another world. The flavor will consume your mind and your soul as the enchanted taste echoes throughout time. It’s like getting punched by a pillow fist made of love and hate while Gordon Ramsey cooks a 5 star meal for you and serves it table side. Your life will be changed forever when you eat these, and you will never forget the flavor in this life or the next. I’d bet money that God Himself even takes trips down to earth to restock his personal pantry with these babies, and I’d also bet He gave Blue Diamond the recipe. If you love almonds, buy these right now.” // shop them here
WEEK 1 – AMAZON FAVES
Core 10 Leggings
I’ve owned these legging for over a year, and they are 100% comparable to Lululemon and Athleta. I wear a small short length (I’m 5’2″) and they don’t pill, they have great compression (they were out of my regular rotation while I was pregnant because they were too compressive for my baby belly), you can choose the waist type, and they’re under $50. The reviews are amazing (4.5 stars on 450+ reviews), they’re totally opaque, they come in XS-3X, short, regular and tall. They wash well, they don’t hold dog fur or lint, and they’re SUPER flattering postpartum. // shop them here
This guy has been on my gift guides and Amazon finds before… for good reason. It’s freaking amazing. I get not wanting to spend $60 for a pillow you can’t feel over the internet. I GET IT! Trust me (and the 15k reviews), just try it. The firmness is customizable so you can remove or add filling based on your comfort level/how you sleep. I personally removed about 1/3 of mine (belly sleeper here!) and made a toddler pillow with the filling. I’m almost a year in with this pillow and it is true love. They also have a 100-night satisfaction guarantee so you have literally nothing to lose. I have the queen size. // shop it here
I’ve owned a silk pillowcase for years but the one I had didn’t have a zipper, so it was constantly slipping off. This pillowcase is absolutely soft, smooth, silky and 100% worth the money. There are all kinds of fancy benefits of sleeping on a silk pillowcase (hair, skin, just feeling great!) – mine is silver but comes in TONS of colors. You can’t beat the price on this one either. // shop it here
Stainless Steel Water Bottle
This beauty (I have the light blue) has replaced my S’well bottle. The stainless steel is gorgeous, the colors are amazing, it has a wide-neck (aka you can get ice it), and comes with a straw top. And it’s under $20 ;). // shop it here
I’m telling you, this has ENTHRALLED my kids for the past 2 weeks. The Easter Bunny brought the kit (it’s reusable), which comes with a voucher for your caterpillars. So you enter the code online and they send you the live caterpillars in a sealed cup that has food already in it – which is a good thing because I can’t feed another living thing ;). We’ve watched them grow (they’re HUGE now) and they’re starting for form their chrysalises. Fingers crossed we get some pretty butterflies but the kids have been so into it the past couple weeks that I felt good about recommending to you now :). Easy science lesson! // shop it here
