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 July:
White Sun Shade Sail Canopy – When we converted part of the backyard to a play area for Poppy we needed a shade solution more permanent than an umbrella and with a larger foot print. Since we already had the posts installed this shade sail was a no brainer.
Splash Pad Sprinkler for Kids – Poppy loves anything and everything water, so this little splash pad play area is perfect for the yard.
R+Co Atlantis Moisturizing Shampoo – Repurchasing Thomas’ favorite shampoo.
R+Co Atlantis Moisturizing Conditioner – And his favorite conditioner.
Theragun Wave Solo Massager – Tom Brady uses something like this every morning for his feet (no joke, look it up). That was the hook that got me interested in researching this. I like that I can turn it on and target a knot in my back and just let the vibration do all the work. Bonus points that I can adjust the levels via bluetooth app. -T
Theragun Wave Roller – Foam rolling is amazing, and the addition of vibration amplifies the breakdown of lactic acid even more. -T
PAIGE Men’s Jeans – Light blue denim I my go to right now. I appreciate how it comes across as casual, and goes well with any of my fitted tees. Bonus points for the stretchy denim which still blows my mind. Not sure how I ever survived pre stretchy denim. This pair is a great fit, not baggy, and perfect for me trying to be a semi stylish dad during these warmer months. Save the dark denim for the holiday season and get a good go to pair of light denim for the rest of the year. -T
Square-Neck One Piece Swimsuit – Love this simple one piece swimsuit.
Baby Sun Hat UPF 50+ – Got this sun hat for Poppy to wear whenever we go to the beach.
Outdoor Wooden Playhouse – Gaby bought poppy a house and I built it. It came in a box weighing 135 pounds and took 4 hours to assemble. Nothing difficult if you can follow directions. All of this is to say Poppy has been obsessed with it ever since it went up. Every morning when she wakes up she asks to go out to her house. So far this is two thumbs up for me. -T
Baby Dinosaur Bath Toys – Dinos Dinos Dinos, poppy loves her dinos. Takes them to the park and in the bath. Poppy likes to chew on them pretty hard in the tub, so far they have held up to the onslaught of infant teeth over the past 3 weeks and extended Poppy’s bath time by an average of 7 min and 30 seconds which is a win in my book. -T
Amazon Favorites in June:
Black Handwraps – With boxing comes wraps, and these are the perfect way to keep my hands protected.
Frozen Yogurt Soft Service Ice Cream Maker – It’s summer, and Adam has this ice cream maker so I had to get it too.
Yon-Ka Mens Cleansing Exfoliator – Repurchasing Thomas’ go-to face wash. Exfoliates and moisturizes at the same time.
Naples Drizzle Chili Oil – One of the best chili oils in the game.
Braided Leather Sandals – These VERY inexpensive sandals were perfect for Italy.
Travel Sleep Eye Mask – Thomas is obsessed with this thing. He took it on our flight to Italy and paired with his face mask… it was a special sight.
YETI Soft Sided Backpack Cooler – For beach picnics!!
Little Tikes Unicorn Bubble Foam Water Table – This thing is Poppy’s FAVORITE thing in the world. we spend at least 2 hours at the water table on a daily basis. you need it if you have littles.
Amazon Favorites in May:
Cookie Scoops – Our old cookie scoop was well-loved, to say the least, and it finally gave up on me last week. This set includes a 1 Tbsp, 2 Tbsp, and 3 Tbsp cookie scoop.
English Breakfast Tea Bags – We needed some caffeinated options for the mornings over here, and this is one of my fav tea brands. Plus, the packaging is very cute.
Stainless Steel Mesh Tea Strainer – For all my loose leaf tea I’ve been buying over the years!
Agility and Speed Training Hurdles – We needed some indoor goal posts for Poppy to practice her soccer. These seemed perfect.
Sparkly Pink Kids’ Crocs – No description needed. WE ARE OBSESSED.
GoPro Hero 10 – It’s been about 4 years since we upgraded our last GoPro. Higher resolution, more stability. It will get the final test when we go to Italy later this month.
Child Carrier Backpack – After speaking to several friends who have children and live in the mountains, there really is no better option when it comes to a child carrier for hikes. Lots of storage space, comfort for Poppy, and comfort for the parents when carrying her.
Big Bubble Wand – Bubbles for summer. Duh.
Mi Cocina by Rick Martinez – One of my new fav cookbooks. This one is stunning!
Hair Dryer – My 10 year old hair dryer finally kicked the boot!
Curling Wand – My sister stole my other one, so I needed a new wand!
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!
