What I Bought From Amazon

While we’re on the topic of organizing my brain, I wanted to make a dedicated list of some of my favorite things I bought from Amazon each month for easy reference! Things I’ve been obsessing over…

Amazon Favorites in April:

Nespresso Machine + Nespresso Capsules – For the guest house! Thomas loves our Breville Barista Pro, but since this is living in the guest house Thomas opted for The Creatista which is basically Breville meets Nespresso.  Everyone knows how to make “pod” coffee.  With this machine you can select from pre-programmed settings for shots (espresso, ristretto, and lungo) and milk drinks (flat white, cappuccino, latte, and macchiato).  You can also tweak milk texture and temperature.  It gives the most flexibility with the least amount of effort or knowledge.

6 lb Bag of Caramel Chocolate – My new favorite chocolate for making chocolate chip cookies. you don’t NEED a 6 lb bag, they make smaller ones, but also…. 6 lbs feels right.

Gallon Water Bottle – Thomas and I are 2 weeks into our gallon of water a day challenge, and honestly, I FEEL AMAZING!

Sunglasses – Geri turned me on to a new pair of sunnies and I’m obsessed.

Aesop Soap and Lotion Set – Restock of our favorite soap and lotion combo.

Nars Concealer – LOVE this concealer!

LaCie Disk – The best portable hard drive out there.

Cold Plunge Barrel – This one is all Thomas. The man is on a mission to be PEAK HEALTH.

Maldon Salt Tub – Stocking up on my favorite flakey sea salt.

Hairspray – Had to re-up my supply and this is my fav!

Amazon Favorites in March:

Take It Easy – Almost 2 years in the making and my 4th cookbook is officially ready for pre-orders! Pre-orders are HUGELY important for authors. That said, I’d be eternally grateful if you snagged a copy or two today!! Can’t wait for you guys to cook from it!

Baby Bicycle – Poppy loves this 4-wheel baby bike.

Men’s Sandals – Nobody panic! Galapagos Thomas is in full swing over here. Thomas ordered these running sandals for the trip.

Sunscreen – Stocking up for all of the sunny weather.

Aesop Hand Soap – Love having this soap in the kitchen.

Concealer – Best concealer ever, period!

Pure Vanilla Extract – I measure with my heart when it comes to vanilla extract. So I was overdue to restock on my favorite brand of vanilla.

Collapsible Folding Outdoor Wagon – Spring and summer farmers markets, I’m ready for you! You can find me carting this around with all of the fresh produce every Sunday for the near future.

Ugg Slipper – I practically live in slippers at this point lol. I mean they are just so cozy. 

Little Blue Truck’s Springtime Board Picture Book – Poppy loves this board picture book.

Osea Cleanser – I ran out and immediately repurchased my holy grail cleanser.

Osea Cleansing Mudd – Same as above, except I use this 2x a week to exfoliate.

Amazon Favorites in February:

No Spill Sippy Cup – No more worrying about spills!

Bunny Blanket – Pops is obsessed with bun bun.

Parchment Sheets – Pre-cut parchment paper sheets are a huge timesaver and minimize waste.

Ray-Ban Sunglasses – Repurchasing my all-time favorite pair of sunglasses.

Amazon Favorites in January:

R+Co Shampoo – Thomas’ favorite shampoo, bye bye dry hair.

R+Co Conditioner – A great combo with the shampoo.

UGG Men’s Slipper – Thomas finally joined the Ugg slipper club. And he is thriving!

Yon-Ka Men Foam Scrub – Thomas’ go to face wash. Exfoliates and moisturizes at the same time.

Yon-Ka Toner – You’ve probably seen these on my master list, restocking on this for my morning and night routine.

Yon-Ka Serum & Cream – Another restock! A staple in my morning and night routine.

Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray – If and when I do my hair this what I use to preserve it an extra couple days.

Apple Watch – I was hesitant to get it at first, but the fact that I can see who it trying to get ahold of me (without constantly being on my phone) when I’m with Poppy is a game changer.
