MY 18 FAVORITE AMAZON PURCHASES OF 2018

Here you’ll find my 18 favorite Amazon purchases of 2018. There are women’s clothing & accessories, cleaning supplies, beauty items & more. Scoll down to #15 to find out what my best selling product of 2019 is so far!

1. ACRYLIC BOX CLUTCH/CROSSBODY BAG 
(stadium approved!)

This is my go to bag for any venue with a clear back policy. I normally try to avoid bringing a bag to football games but after purchasing this to use in New Orleans for Taylor Swift’s Reputation tour I’ll never need to go bagless again! Wear it crossbody or remove the chain to use it as a clutch.


2. LEOPARD PRINT CARDIGAN WITH POCKETS

While the leopard print version is my favorite & the one I personally own, there are so many other prints that this cardigan comes in so you’re sure to find one you like! There are even several holiday prints to choose from.


3. QUAY WOMEN’S X DESI PERKINS HIGH KEY SUNGLASSES

You’ve probably seen these in several of my photos because these have been my everyday sunglasses for months. Not only do I love how they look but I also love that they don’t tint my phone screen when I look at it since the bottom portion of the lens is clear.


4. SPORTS BRA

This sports bra is incredibly comfortable as well as super easy to get on & off since the bottom strap opens up. The cups are sewn in so there’s no risk of them getting lost or bunched up in the wash.


5. CROSSBODY BAG

The pockets on this bag make keeping your items organized effortless. I purchased this bag to use during our family vacation to Walt Disney World in Orlando last spring & could not have been happier with it. The bag itself is super light weight so it was perfect for carrying through the parks all day. There was room for my phone, external battery, camera, chapstick, wallet, & all the other essentials.


6. iROBOT BRAAVA JET 240 ROBOT MOP

Most people have heard of the iRobot Roomba vacuums but have you heard of the iRobot Braava Jet mops?! Tell Braava whether you want to sweep, damp mop, or wet mop just by which pad color you put on it. The mop comes with 2 pads of each color. This robot mop has made mopping under my kitchen table an absolute breeze. Also perfect for bathrooms! Have hard floors throughout your home? There’s a larger Braava Jet which might work better for you.

BONUS ITEM: WASHABLE PADS FOR BRAAVA JET

Concerned with using disposable mop pads? These washable pads work with the iRobot Braava Jet mop! Since they don’t contain cleaning solution like the disposable iRobot pads do, I just spray them & the floor with my cleaning solution of choice before use.


7. PHILIPS HUE SMART BULB STARTER KIT

This kit contains 4 bulbs which can show white or color light & 1 bridge which will connect them to your smart home. They’re compatible with Apple HomeKit, Amazon Alexa, and Google Assistant. I have my bulbs setup to turn off when I leave home, turn on when I get home, and setup to respond to several different verbal commands. I love being able to turn them on, turn them off, & even change their brightness or color at home or from thousands of miles away so my home doesn’t look vacant while I’m on vacation.


8. RUBBERMAID BRILLIANCE CONTAINERS

Not only do these containers look gorgeous but they also feature spill proof lids that lock on & steam vents under the locks so you can microwave your leftovers in them without fear of splattering sauce all over the microwave. I love that I can throw these in my purse without worrying whether anything will escape & coat the bottom of my bag.


9. CELL PHONE TRIPOD

This little tripod is our go-to camera assistant these days. It’s so small & lightweight that I can carry it around in my purse daily so it’s always there when we need it. The flexible legs mean that it can grip on just about anywhere. Perfect for group photos, solo travel photos, or timelapse videos.


10. REVLON INFRARED HAIR DRYER

Confession: I had no idea how awful my old hairdryer was until I stayed at a friend’s house & used her new one. OOPS. This new one has cut down my drying time significantly & the results are improved too!


11. MIRACLE COMPLEXION SPONGE 

Better & cheaper than a Beautyblender so what’s not to love? At only $4 a piece, I can’t pass these up. They even have a carrying case available for storage or travel!


12. TEXTURIZING DRY SHAMPOO

Finally a dry shampoo that both works & doesn’t leave white patches in my dark brunette hair. You can even use it to give a little texture to freshly washed hair.


13. CORKCICLE DECAPITATOR BOTTLE CAP OPENER

There’s never been an easier way to remove bottle caps & the magnet inside keeps them from flying off once removed. Perfect for bottle cap collectors who want to keep only the cap without damaging it.


14. WALL MOUNT FOR ECHO DOT

Keep your counters clear of clutter by mounting your Echo Dot under the outlet in the kitchen, bathroom, or anywhere else you have an outlet. This model is for the 2nd Gen Echo Dots but there are mounts for the 3rd Gen Echo Dots available as well.


15. ROCCO & ROXIE PROFESSIONAL STRENGTH STAIN & ODOR ELIMINATOR

So far this is the blog’s best selling product! Hopefully all of you are enjoying it just as much as I do. This stain & odor eliminator might be the only reason Winston still lives indoors. Kidding, kidding… kind of. To step your cleaning up another notch, combine using this spray with a blacklight to make sure you get the whole accident.


16. FOLDING SOFT DOG CRATE by Amazon Basics

Continuing the theme of cleaning up after Winston, this crate is made of fabric surrounding a foldable metal frame. It’s so easy to disassemble, scrub the frame, throw the fabric into the wash & reassemble once it’s all clean again.


17. MEMORY FOAM DOG BED WITH REMOVABLE COVER by PETMAKER

We’ve gone through so many large dog beds over the years for Francis because they just don’t hold up very well. Each time I give this one’s cover a wash though it basically looks brand new. It’s large enough for Francis & Winston to share so they often do cuddle up on it together. If it can survive them, it can survive your dog.


18. CONTOUR MEMORY FOAM PILLOW by EPABO

This pillow was a life saver when I started experiencing extreme neck pain last year. It’s contoured so that different parts of the pillow correspond to how you sleep, whether that be on your back, side, or stomach. Tragically, I left mine at Universal Orlando Resort & the one I picked up on the way home just isn’t the same. I’ll be purchasing this again soon!
