My Top 15 Amazon Favorites

Making the decision and joining Amazon Prime a few years ago was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. It’s just so convenient! I remember being skeptical at first because I didn’t know if it was worth it. But I quickly realized how much time and money it saves us in our busy lives. Amazon Favorites have been a thing for a while now and they’re content that I will always click on. There’s always room to discover new favorites and with a place like Amazon that has everything, a little guidance can be very helpful.

After looking through my past orders, I realized the majority of things I purchase are all necessities. Even if I can find something at Walmart, I’ll purchase it on Amazon instead just to save me time and it’s usually cheaper on Amazon too! For this post, I left out most of the necessity repurchases and only included my top 15 Amazon exclusive-like products. We’ll start with some home gadgets and accessories, then move into tech, and finish with beauty and fashion.

This was actually my husband’s idea. He wanted to get all fancy with our coffees at home and for only $8, there really wasn’t an excuse not to. I’ve been loving it a lot more than expected and now we use it all the time!
We’ve been grinding our own coffee beans for about 2 ½ years now. We started out with this Cuisinart grinder because it's pretty affordable for what we were looking for. It’s a burr grinder, which is supposed to produce more even and consistent grinding compared to a typical blade grinder. We use this every single day and it still works just as good as the day we got it.
This one might seem a little strange, but yes we do actually keep a compost bin on our kitchen countertop. I bought this as a gift for my husband last Christmas because he wanted to start a compost for our garden. We put eggshells, coffee grounds, fruit, and veggies in here and empty it into a larger compost outside when it gets full.

It’s not my favorite as far as looks go because it kinda looks like a white fire hydrant to me, but it gets the job done and it makes me feel good knowing I’m doing something good for my body and the environment. It also has double charcoal filters in the lid to absorb any odor, which was one of my main concerns.
Water pressure has always been a big thing for me, but it’s become even more important the longer my hair gets. After switching to this 6” shower head, I’ve saved so much time! I love all the different settings that it has and how easy it’s made cleaning the shower because of the hose.
Down comforters are what I always use on my bed. I love the way they feel and although these can be put inside a duvet, I leave them as they are because I love white bedding. Even with regular washing, they still get dirty and need replacing after a while. I’ve gotten my past three (including one for our guest room) from Amazon and loved the quality. I’d recommend going up a size to make sure it’s long enough on the sides.
I love lights. I’m one of those people who has to have all the lights on in whatever room I’m in. I used to not spend much time outside, especially at night because there wasn’t enough light. Adding these has made all the difference and I think it looks so cute! This strand from Amazon Basics was the best deal for the money and one of the longest strands we could find. I was worried about ordering light bulbs online and that they might come broken, but these came packaged very well.
7.) Tripod
Tripods are sold almost everywhere and I used to just have one from Target. However, that one was cheaply made and not very sturdy. I put up with it for about 2 years before getting a new one. This is another Amazon Basics find and I have been so happy with the quality. It’s very sturdy and makes me feel safe allowing it to hold something as expensive and fragile as a camera.
I originally got this to help dry my makeup setting spray. I saw Kathleen (KathleenLights on Youtube) use one and thought it was genius. I tried looking in stores and couldn’t find any good quality ones, so I went to Amazon because I knew they’d have something good. This is one of the best things I’ve ever bought and now I use it for all different purposes. It’s rechargeable, it has 3 settings, and it can fold in half.
As far as portable speakers go, this has to be one of the best. We got this to bring outside or to use while we’re kayaking. Based on its size, I wasn’t expecting it to be so loud or have such good sound quality but it does! This one is also rechargeable and a purchase that we’ve been so happy with.
10.) TV Mount
During the holiday sales last year, we decided to upgrade our tv. And in doing that, we also decided to mount it on the wall rather than have it sit on an entertainment center. Tv mounts have always worried me because I wasn’t sure how well they could be trusted, so I made sure we got one that was very sturdy to give me peace of mind. Again, Amazon had the best deal and this one had really good reviews. It was pretty easy to install and moves in all kinds of different directions.
11.) Dog Leash
If you have an excited dog, getting a leash with two handles is definitely a must! We ordered this one when we got our Australian Shepherd last year and we ended up loving it so much, we ordered another one for our German Shepherd. I like having the same size for both dogs because it makes walking them so much easier. This one has the most comfortable handles and is the perfect length.
This was a gift from my husband last year and not only am I surprised he did such a good job picking out something like this, I was also really impressed with the quality of it. The actual mirror is so clear and the lights on it are just as bright as they need to be. It has a touchscreen ‘on and off’ button and the lights can be dimmed to your own personal preference.
This one isn’t necessarily an Amazon exclusive favorite because it can be found in some health food stores, but I can’t find it anywhere locally so I’m always repurchasing it on Amazon. This is the best, most intense mask I’ve ever used. I’ve been using it twice a week for about 4 ½ years now and with continued use, I’ve noticed a huge difference in the size of my pores, the amount of oil my skin is producing, the hyperpigmentation, acne -- it’s taken care of it all! Full review and details here.
I never gave into the Lularoe hype and after finding these leggings on Amazon, I’m so glad I didn’t. Is Lularoe even still a thing anymore?? According to the reviews I read before purchasing these, they supposedly feel exactly like Lularoe. Although I’ve never touched a pair of Lularoe leggings before, I can tell you these VIV Collection leggings feel like butter! I love the price, the designs, and the fact that they stay in place without sliding down throughout the day. I now have 5 different pairs of these leggings and I’m sure I won’t be stopping there.
My last Amazon favorite is this maxi dress. I can’t remember if I got it for anything specific when I ordered it, but I’ve worn it for all kinds of events including our engagement photos and it’s one of my favorite dresses that I own. I have it in a small. It’s not cotton like I was expecting, but it’s still super comfortable and incredibly flattering. I definitely want to order another design!
What would I even do without Amazon?? I have no idea and honestly, it’s not something I even want to think about because the thought of Amazon being gone is pretty stressful. The convenience, competitive prices, and fast shipping has us so spoiled. If you’ve been considering Amazon Prime, I definitely recommend it. It’s a total game changer!

I went with my favorite color on my nails this week! This is Soul Mate by Sinful Colors. It’s a soft dusty pink with a cream finish. I wore this color all the time during all of my bridal and wedding festivities because it’s the perfect pink that matches with everything. It’s such a flattering color, I’ve even gotten my mom and sister obsessed with it!
What’s on your nails this week?
