My 24 Random & Useful Amazon Purchases (+ Prime Day Deals)

Do you ever sit and think about what you did before something came along?! For me that thing is Amazon Prime! I’m not sure what I did before Amazon Prime and I can’t even imagine life without the convenience of it. I feel like we order SO MUCH from Amazon, whether it’s daily essentials or a really random item I stumbled up! Today I wanted to share some of my favorite Amazon purchases with y’all! I’m also sharing a lot of the Prime Day deals at the bottom of this post, be sure to check them out!

My favorite Amazon purchases!

  1. IROBOT ROOMBA | We got this as a Christmas gift and it has been a great addition to our house. We run it a few times a week and it does a great job at getting up pet hair, random dust, etc. It takes about an hour or so to run through our downstairs rooms.
  2. STASHER REUSABLE BAGS | If you’re trying to reduce your use of plastic, be sure to pick up these silicone bags! They are reusable and can even be put in the dishwasher.
  3. AIRPODS & AIRPOD CASE | I LOVE my AirPods – I think they are so great and convenient. I purchased this case cover for my case because I kept losing it in my bag. Now with the case I can see the light pink easily in my bag.
  4. ROKU STREAMING STICK | We only have a cable box in one room of our house and use the Roku Streaming Sticks in every other room. We can watch all the Netflix, Hulu, and HBO that our hearts desire anywhere we want. We also bring one when we travel so we can watch our shows!
  5. ICE ROLLER | The ice roller is SO good for de-puffing your face, helps with sore muscles, and even migraines.
  6. COMPRESSION PACKING BAGS | I’m a self-proclaimed overpacker, so these compression bags allow me to bring more without taking up more space in my suitcase.
  7. GOOGLE WIFI PODS | We got these as a housewarming gift when we moved into our house. It helps your wifi to have great signal all throughout your home.
  8. KINDLE PAPERWHITE E-READER | My FAVORITE purchase ever! I love my Kindle Paperwhite for reading outside and traveling. This one is waterproof so I can even take it to the beach and pool.
  9. PHILIPS WAKE UP LIGHT ALARM CLOCK | Not a morning person? This wake up alarm clock makes waking up a bit easier (and it’s less aggressive than the iPhone alarm!)
  10. MAKEUP ERASER | I love bringing along my makeup eraser when traveling. It makes getting makeup off SO easy!
  11. PET GROOMING BRUSH | This is the only brush that Charlie and Avett like for de-shedding them! Avett actually thinks it’s a toy ha!
  12. ANKER PORTABLE CHARGER | I love this portable charger because it’s lightweight and holds a charge for a long time. It’s especially great when traveling.
  13. DYSON V7 ANIMALPRO CORDLESS VACUUM | This vacuum is a GAME CHANGER whether you have animals or not! It sucks up SO much and will make you question what your old vacuum was actually getting up! I love that it’s cordless so that I can take it all around the house.
  14. APPLE WATCH (AND BAND) | A great watch fro tracking steps, your workouts & being able to keep up with alerts when on the go.
  15. NESPRESSO MACHINE | Getting a Nespresso machine was one of the best decisions. It has essentially cut out coffee shop runs and it tastes delicious.
  16. ACRYLIC EARRING ORGANIZER | This earring organizer can hold SO many earrings. Last time I checked I have over 60 pairs of statement earrings on mine. It folds up easily too, so it doesn’t take up a ton of room.
  17. RING DOORBELL | The Ring doorbell is perfect for tracking motion in your front yard, seeing if packages are delivered & seeing who is at your door without answering it!
  18. AMAZON ECHO | We have the OG echo and love it for setting timers when cooking.
  19. SALAD CHOPPER | This salad chopper is SO random but it chops salads so well with the double chopper. I love my salads finely chopped and this chopper makes it so easy!
  20. MONOPOLY DEAL | Monopoly Deal is one of our favorite games. Everyone that has played it ends up loving it and immediately ordering it on Amazon Prime! We bring it with us everywhere.
  21. ELECTRONIC JEWELRY CLEANER | I use this jewelry cleaner anytime my jewels start looking a little “blah.” It gets out lotion, makeup, dirt, etc from everything from rings to bracelets!
  22. BLITZ JEWELRY CLEANER CONCENTRATE | This is the jewelry cleaner I use with the electronic cleaner. It works wonders and makes everything extra clean & sparkly.
  23. YETI COOLER | We love our Yeti cooler for beach or pool days. It can hold all of our essentials!
  24. VELVET HANGERS | My entire closet is converted to these hangers. They take up less space and my clothes never accidentally slip off of them.

  • Weekend plan: find Bernadette! 🕶💁🏼‍♀️🌍🎬so beyond thrilled that Where’d You Go Bernadette is officially in theaters TODAY! 🎉 last month I jetted off to Toronto thanks to @bernadettefilm for a once in a lifetime experience. We got to go to an advanced screening of #WheredYouGoBernadette followed by a Q&A with #RichardLinklater and the cast of the movie. It was truly fascinating hearing them talk about @mariasemple’s book to movie adaption, how they related to #Bernadette & all the filming details! I think I’m still reeling from being in the same room as these talented people! And yes, I totally fan girled over meeting & chatting with @sleepinthegardn (PLL FAN 4 LYFE!) 😂

If you loved the book, be sure to see the movie! And if you haven’t read the book yet, definitely add it to your shelf! 📚 #enwreads They did an incredible job adapting this book and maintaining the essence of Bernadette’s witty, exotic character! I think you’ll find yourself relating to Bernadette in *some* way throughout the movie! I loved it - I laughed, I teared up & it’s full of heartwarming moments! Huge thanks to @bernadettefilm for the wonderful weekend in #Toronto! 💙[ad] #cateblanchette #bernadettefilm #troianbellisario

  • To be completely honest, today has been a shit show 🤦🏼‍♀️ My morning started off at 3:15 with a sick pup & continued snow balling until about 5:00 this evening. Some days just get the best of ya & today our animals got the best of me and Nick🤣 luckily they’re both ok 🐶🐱 but man, today was rough and stressful! The highlight of my day was meeting @_happygocurly_ for coffee while she was in town this AM! ☕️ We have never met, but had been friends online for years!  It was like grabbing coffee with an old friend! 👯‍♀️ chin up friends, the weekend is *almost* here!
