A monthly report of my favorite Amazon purchases. This month we are featuring items from my closet (including my new favorite swimsuit!), kitchen and home decor.
I’m finally back with a new Friday Amazon Favorites post! I took the last 3 months off since my kids were not at school, so getting anything done on this blog of mine was a challenge. This week they went to a day camp so I snuck in a couple of recipe posts for you, and now this Amazon post! Woot Woot!
Last time I posted anything about fashion, I was all about my favorite joggers and leggings. I still love them, but holy summer heat! Those suckers haven’t come out of my drawer in the last two months as I’m all about my favorite shorts and tees right now. They’ll make their way back to their regular rotation in a couple of months though!
Let’s talk about some of my favorites I’ve been wearing lately.
My Favorite Swimsuit
First up, my new swimsuits! I only have one pictured (I’m shy about photos of me in my swimsuit). It took me forever to find what I was looking for. As much as I love a one-piece suit, I hate when it’s time to use the bathroom. So, I was on the search for a new two-piece (not a bikini), high-waisted bottoms with tummy control, not cheeky, and enough coverage on top to be modest.
It took a few orders and free returns on Amazon to find the perfect style for me. The first few suits I tried advertised full-coverage on the bottom but they were so cheeky you could not tell the back from the front! I was so thrilled when I found this suit that is truly full bottom coverage.
Y’all this swim suit is PERFECT. I had so many compliments on it. I also bought it in the black top with green bottoms and I’m saving this fun color combo for an idea to buy for next year. The flowy top is very flattering and the high waist offers the perfect amount of tummy control. The material is a nice thickness and the price is definitely right at less than $30 for the set!
Earrings, Necklace, Bracelet
This next outfit includes a Target dress that is unfortunately now out of stock. The dress is one of my very favorites right now. But, the items I wanted to point out from Amazon are the bracelet, necklace and earrings.
The rattan earrings come in a set of 4 and are darling. All neutral colors that go well with many outfits. I was on the hunt for a dainty short necklace and finally found one that is the perfect length for my skinny neck and a nice price. Most short necklaces are still a little too long on me so I have the hardest time finding ones that I like. I wear it all the time.
The bracelet was a birthday gift to me last year from my little sister. I love it! When I wore it to church again the other day, I decided to send my sis a text to let her know I’m still wearing it and love it so much, then realized I should share it with y’all! I can’t seem to find the exact one from last year, but this one is very similar, a good price, and great ratings.
Flowy Tie-Front Shirt
This flowy tie-front shirt is the best! I also have it in red. It’s a great shirt for dressing up or down. The light weight material and flowy sleeves keeps it cool even when it’s hot. It’s washes well, but you want to hang dry it. (Which I hang-dry almost all of my clothes anyway).
This shirt is $24 and as of right now (Friday) it is 5% off. It’s true to size and roomy. I am wearing size small, but probably could’ve done well with an x-small if they offered it.
I love love love the tassle earrings, too! I also have the black pair. There are a TON of other colors and I plan on buying more as my outfits need them! 🙂
Let me tell you how much I love these girlfriends pictured above. This was our first lunch together in MONTHS to celebrate a birthday and it was so nice to catch up!
Since this IS mainly a recipe blog, I love including my favorite kitchen and food items that I find on Amazon.
I’m starting with these electrolytes popsicles. It’s so hot here in Mississippi and the whole country is experiencing a heat wave right now. These popsicles are made right here in Mississippi and I get them on Amazon. They are more expensive than your typical cheap popsicle from the grocery store, but they also offer so much more!
My neighbors who are triathletes and Ironman competitors bought these for their 8 year old daughter who is also an athlete. I saw her eating one of these popsicles after her recent virtual triathlon and immediately bought them for my boys. It’s like a frozen Gatorade. Yes, electrolytes and all! They LOVE them!
Air Fryer Toaster Oven
Y’all, this is my new favorite kitchen appliance. I’ve owned this other air fryer for about one year now, but it’s the kind that you store away and don’t leave on the counter top. It works great and I used it all the time, but after visiting my family and seeing how much my sister uses her countertop air fryer toaster oven, I was sold!
I like that this does more than air frying and looks like a toaster oven. It looks pretty on my counter and I have used it countless times in the short time I’ve owned it. We’ve successfully reheated leftovers, cooked a few fresh pizzas, freshened up baked chicken, made a hot dip, baked poppyseed chicken casserole, and more!
If you have the room for a countertop air fryer toaster oven, I highly recommend this one! This is especially wonderful right now while it’s SO hot and I never want to turn on my big oven. This toaster oven does just as well as my big oven without heating up my kitchen. If you have a smaller kitchen, I recommend the compact version my sister has and loves.
Home Decor Items
Right before and during the shut-down of 2020, we fixed up a few things in our home. I’d love to show you more, but right now I only have one photo to share.
Foyer Light Fixture
We recently switched out a few of our light fixtures in our home. This one is in our foyer and we love it! The price was definitely right and the quality is great. It was easy to install (thanks, hubby!) and overall made our foyer look so much better.
I wanted to share the other light fixture (over our dining room table) but we’ll have to wait for another day as I don’t have a photo of it yet. 🙂 It’s linked, but next time I’ll show you!
That’s all I have time for! Have a great weekend!
