Who doesn’t love getting a sneak peek at what’s been in someone’s shopping cart? I know I sure do! So I thought it might be fun to share some of my latest, favorite Amazon purchases.
If you’ve got any of these, too, or have had some awesome finds yourself, I’d love to hear about ’em in the comments!

I already mentioned that I’m a huge fan of the FWTFL strength workouts, and many of them incorporate strength bands. For a long time, I was just using my existing mini bands for added resistance, but I didn’t realize what a difference these cloth strength bands made. Whew!
For only about $14, you really can’t beat the price for getting the set of 3 in various resistance levels, and they’re really great quality. They stay in place (as opposed to the mini bands I was using which were constantly sliding up when I used them above the knees), and my goodness, do they help you feel the burn. I can’t believe I went for so long without having them added to my little home gym setup.
Hellooo, my new favorite top for spring/summer! No idea how I came across this one, but I’m thrilled that I did.
I’m loving the high neck line, making it perfect for work. The material is great, with minimal wrinkles after washing (always a huge bonus for me, because I hate ironing, but hate wrinkled clothes more), and the fit is roomy but stylish. The tan color is a bit see-through, so I do have to wear another tank underneath, but my guess is that the darker colors wouldn’t have this issue.
The price on these ranges between around $15-17, depending on the color, so they’re definitely a good buy! And with that said…adds black option to cart.
Thank you to my soon-to-be sister-in-law, Carissa, for informing me of this one. I don’t know how we got on the subject one day, but I was likely talking about how I could never get enough suds while washing my hair. Well…let. me. tell. you. A little scrub action from this baby while in the shower, and my hair is suds city.
Not only that, but I will forever and always be in love with a good scalp massage, and this little brush feels so nice. Not only that, but they also say that it can help to strengthen the roots of the hair, too, so it’s a win-win. Definitely a must-have for me now.
I’ve always loved the look of bracelets, but hate how they’re always clanging against each other or getting in the way while I’m writing or typing. So I psyched when I came across this leather wrap bracelet, because while it has somewhat of the look of layered bracelets, the leather (and lack of metal) makes them much quieter and less invasive.
I also really appreciate the metal clasp, making it super easy to snap on and off.
Or, if you’re like me, it just makes it more fun to mess around with on and off all day.
I already shared this one in my last post, but it’s worth mentioning again because I love them that much. I was so sad when Target stopped carrying the C9 line, so the fact that I can still grab them from Amazon is awesome.
Size-wise, they’re true to size. I’m typically a small or medium in tops, depending on the brand and/or fit of the top; I own these in both smalls and mediums, and they’re both a roomy fit, obviously with medium having a bit more. With the larger size, I even have enough room to do a cute little front knot, to show off to absolutely no one while I’m working out alone in my basement.
But hey, now you know, too. ; )
You can mark this one off as a purchase that I had zero excitement about, because honestly…who enjoys spending money on towels, let alone kitchen towels?!
But these towels are a thing of beauty. The microfiber does an amazing job of drying things quickly, they’re super soft, and they’re even pretty cute. They come in lots of different colors, so there’s likely a color combo for everyone out there!
I have to thank Jen Reed from The Sister Studio for introducing me to this one. You can categorize this one into the “definitely didn’t need it but was totally influenced” bucket, but I have zero regrets. I try to incorporate it into my nightly skincare routine about 2-3x/week, where I do a double cleanse (I cleanse with my regular cleanser first, then follow up a second time with the Botanic Tree). It leaves my skin feeling SO soft and legit, squeaky clean.
Back in the day, when Jay and I actually worked in an office (sigh), at least one of us was likely ironing clothes every single day. So rather than always setting up and taking down our ironing board, it was a constant décor piece in our bedroom (which I hated). So you know, since we’re always home now and only need to be presentable from about the shoulders up, ironing isn’t really that much of a priority anymore, and I was thrilled to take down that monster of an ironing board.
That said, I still despise wrinkled clothes. But rather than always dealing with the iron + ironing board, I found this little handheld clothes steamer and it has become a perfect replacement! If/when I need a quick steam on a top, I can plug it in, fill it up, and have a quick steam done within a few minutes. I’ve even used it on some curtains that I’d been meaning to iron, and it was SO much more convenient. Would highly recommend!
Funny enough, I’m including these bed sheets in this post, even though I actually bought them over a year ago. The brushed microfiber material makes them suuuuper soft, they come in tons of colors and patterns, and they wash/dry really well (which I can attest to, now having had them for over a year!). Bed sheets are another one of those items that I don’t really love spending money on, but for the price, you really can’t beat ’em.
This one was a bit of an impromptu purchase, and we have zero regrets. While hanging out with our neighbors one night, we got chatting about this neck massager and discovered that it was on sale for something like 40% off?! So I’m pretty sure I was able to snag it for less than $40, and right now it looks like it’s on sale for $50 for Prime members + an extra 20% off coupon!
Both Jay and I deal with really annoying, and sometimes rather painful neck pain (thanks, poor posture while working from home…!). This thing feels SO GOOD, hits all of the right spots, and works great on not only the neck, but down the back, too. It even heats up, which feels amaaaazing. I love to toss it on while watching TV at night after the kids go to bed, but be warned…start out slowwwwwly. The first time I used it, I had it on for about 45 minutes, and I woke up SO sore the next day from all of the massaging! So just work your way up on the timing if you don’t want to wake up extra sore.
What fun stuff have YOU purchased lately?!
