BEST Amazon purchases: both mine AND yours!

Who doesn't live for Amazon these days? Sometimes I wonder: what was the world like before Amazon Prime?? I can hardly remember. I have some ride or die favorites that I will buy forever and ever, and apparently you guys do too! When I asked you what YOUR Amazon must-haves are, you really came through! Some stuff I have tried or heard of, but most are new to me and I can't WAIT to try them.

Here are some of MY Amazon faves, along with a complete crowd-sourced list of YOUR best-of-Prime specialties!

My Recent Amazon Faves

  1. Nonstick Baking Pans – This pretty, gold, nonstick pan actually WORKS. Never worry about your treats sticking again (truly amazing), and enjoy cooking ALL kinds of your favorites with it from cookies to vegetables. Plus, it has a lifetime guarantee – and it's only $24.99!
  2. Heating and Massage Pad – If you watch my Stories, you saw this baby in action the other day – and I am SOLD FOREVER. How did I ever live without this?! It's becoming part of my nightly routine, and after a long work day the relaxation is absolutely heaven. If you have $50 of splurge money to spend, you HAVE to try it!
  3. Pickleball Paddles – Pickleball has become our new hobby as of late (have you tried it yet?) and these paddles are SO good! The first time we played, we borrowed some paddles that someone had brought and at the time, I didn't know the difference. The second time I played, I borrowed way bigger, better paddles and WOW the difference was night and day! I decided we needed to invest in our own instead of rolling the dice on what kind of paddles we'd be borrowing next time. If you don't want to take it from a pickleball beginner, you can read all of the super high reviews from more experienced players. These are the highest rated, best overall pickleball paddles from amazon.
  4. Long Barrel Styler Curling Iron – If you have long hair you will REALLY appreciate this one. No more having to strategically wrap your hair around your curling iron so it fits. This barrel is 2″ longer than your typical styler, so it makes curling your hair so much easier. The whole section of hair fits without any overlap! This styler is super highly rated, and it's under $150. For a quality hair tool like this one, that is a GREAT price!
  5. Wire Baskets – How cute are these geometric wire baskets? Inspired by these baskets from Anthro, these Amazon wire baskets are a great save option. Plus, I LOVE when I can have it shipped to my doorstep SO FAST, and with Amazon's free and easy returns there's no stress when buying.
  6. Baking Dish – Bake your goods and store them, too! This less than $20 baking dish is AMAZING because you put the airtight lid on when you're done serving up dinner (can I get a HALLELUJAH for easy dinner clean up), and your leftovers stay fresh for days. It comes with a built-in trivet so no more scrambling to find something to protect your countertops when you're pulling this dish hot out of the oven. And it's leakproof!
  7. Reusable Fiberglass Chopsticks – These chopsticks are super highly rated, DISHWASHER SAFE, cute and colorful, and under $9 for five pairs! I think these are THE CUTEST and you can say goodbye to the possible tongue splinter of using the free wooden chopsticks that come with your takeout!
  8. Metal Spatula Set – These commercial grade spatulas are IT. If you aren't using commercial grade yet, you might need to jump on the train because it will change your cooking game forever! These are the most perfect pancake flippers of all time. I had to look a bit harder for some that were dishwasher safe (most have a wood handle) but these are! And this pair is only $15.99.
  9. Disposable Face Mask – Leopard print disposable mask? Yes, please! I love how cute these are and I love that I can always have a fresh one on hand. Every time I wear these out people ask where I got my cute masks!!
  10. Portable Carpet Cleaner – There's a reason this is the #1 best selling carpet cleaner on Amazon! We have absolutely loved using this for a quick clean of ANY upholstery in our house.It works like a charm and is the same level of satisfying as a pressure washer. Plus, it's under $160!
  11. Mighty Patch Original – When something has FORTY THREE THOUSAND plus reviews on amazon, and it's less than a salad and a drink, it's worth trying right?! Shrink your zits within six hours. Wear this on your stubborn pimples and watch the true magic happen. There's a reason 71% of people who review them give them perfect 5-star reviews. For $12.50, I was amazed at the results from this simple purchase! That works out to be 34 cents per patch. That's a steal of a skincare treatment if I've ever seen one!
  12. Triple Necklace Layering Clasp, Double Necklace Layering Clasp – I showed this on my Stories the other day and got SOOO many questions! Layering necklaces is a super big trend right now, and I LOVE how this keeps all of my necklaces separate from each other, and only takes me 3 seconds to put on or take off. There's nothing worse than tangled necklaces, am I right?

HONORABLE MENTION: These Breathable Luxury Naked Feeling High-Waisted leggings pictured above are so dreamy. Plus they have pockets! They are not quite as breathable as the Lululemon pants that inspired them, the focus of these Amazon leggings seems to be more on the compression side versus the breathable side, but I really love them and especially for the price!!
