I’m on Amazon all the time for work, but you can bet some of that time I’m window shopping for myself! I love coming across all the new discoveries every week, and sometimes even stumbling across best-selling, top-rated items I missed the memo on! I love sharing what I find, and even better if they’re things I personally want.
I delved deep into my “Shopping List” on Amazon to find the things I want now, need yesterday, can’t wait to get! I’ve included ten beauty items, five kitchen tools, ten sometimes weird but all good gadgets, seven awesome pieces of clothing and five tech items that are sure to get your credit cards worried.

This Holographic Nail Polish Is So Cool
I don’t often paint my nails crazy colors so I was so happy to find this holographic nail polish that’s just the right amount of sparkle without being neon bright! The color-shifting finish is mesmerizing, and it looks good on all skin tones. It’s pretty much the perfect polish according to the 1,200+ rave reviews since it dries fast, lasts a really long time and also happens to be vegan and cruelty-free. I have a feeling my two girls would be as obsessed with this as I am, too!
This Liquid Lipstick Lasts Forever
I like to apply makeup then forget about it, I can’t stand fussy touch-ups all day or makeup that fades quickly, making it look like you didn’t apply anything in the first place. This liquid lipstick from Wet and Wild glides on like butter and dries matte but doesn’t dry lips out like other brands can. The colors are bold but flattering – check out the reviewer photos for the amazing results! What’s even better? It’s under $3. Unbelievable!
This Eyeshadow Stick Is So Easy
One of the big criteria when choosing makeup is how easily I can apply it in the car, since I’m always multi-tasking and don’t actually take time to do makeup in the house like a normal person. This Julep eyeshadow stick promises incredibly easy application, and comes in a ton of flattering shimmery or matte shades. It also shows how each shade looks on fair, medium and dark skin so you can get an accurate idea of how it might look on you, which is super handy.
This Scalp Massager Gives You A Salon Shampoo
One of my very favorite things about getting my hair done is the long scalp massage my hairdresser does – it’s literally why I keep going back to her (along with the great haircuts, of course)! Since I have a low-maintenance haircut, I don’t go as often as I should, and I really miss the thorough wash and massage between appointments. Good news: this best-selling shampoo brush will give me that salon-quality scrubbing in the comfort of my own shower! And you can use it on dry hair, too, for a relaxing scalp massage. Over 11,000 glowing reviews can’t be wrong!
This Mascara Makes It Look Like You’re Wearing False Eyelashes
I’ve got a handful of fancy mascaras hanging around, but when I saw the reviews for this Lash Princess False Lash Mascara (that happens to be only $4.99!) I was immediately intrigued. The before and afters are gorgeous – it really does look like the reviewers are wearing lash extensions or false eyelashes! The special brush delivers volume and length in spades for the lushest lashes. Even more good news is that it’s certified by PETA as a cruelty-free brand, so I don’t have to worry about animal testing.
This Liquid Eyeliner Is Easy As Pie
I already have the brown version of this Stila liquid eyeliner and I love it so much I want it in classic black, too! I’m not a makeup artist by any stretch of the imagination, so I was shocked at how easy this was to apply since liquid liner can be really tricky. Not this one – it glides on so easily, no skipping or smudging, and really does last all day or until you take it off with makeup remover. It even looks good the next day if you happen to fall asleep in your makeup (ask me how I know).
This Pacifica Cleanser Smells Like Coconut And Vanilla
I have sensitive skin so I don’t trust a lot of skin care brands, but this Pacifica face cleanser has so many great reviews on Amazon and also in magazines from beauty experts that I can’t wait to give it a try. It gently but thoroughly cleans away makeup, dirt, sweat, you name it, destresses skin and smells like a coconut and vanilla dream. It’s made without sulfates and other baddies like parabens and phthalates plus it’s vegan and 100% cruelty free. Oh, and it has nearly 2,000 stellar reviews. I love other products from this brand so I’m really looking forward to trying this one, too!
This Steam Eye Pillow Soothes And Relaxes
I spend most of my days staring at various screens, and by the evening my eyes are burning and tired. I’ve been wanting to try these steam eye pillows forever – you just microwave them for a bit then let the warm steam relax and refresh your eyes. I have the self-heating disposable ones, which I love, but this one’s even better since it’s reusable. Less waste and you don’t have to keep re-buying the masks!
These Makeup Brushes Are Adorable
My makeup brushes are getting kinda raggedy after 10+ years of use, plus they take up way too much room to store. Enter this compact, travel-size makeup brush set that has everything you need in one small package! The double-ended brushes save space and the handles are made of wood so they’re sturdy, unlike cheapy plastic ones. Reviewers rave about the quality – super soft bristles and no shedding in sight. Plus they come in their own little case so they’re easy to store and take up virtually no room in a makeup bag or bathroom cabinet.
These Acne Patches Are So Fun And Really Work
We’ve all seen the circular acne patches, but I was so stoked to come across these star and heart shaped ones since they’re so fun! Getting zits is a definite bummer, so why not add a little levity to the mix with a cute zit sticker? The hydrocolloid patches suck out pus like a sponge, leaving your spot flat and reducing redness. It’s so satisfying to wake up in the morning to a gross patch and clearer skin!
This Meat Chopper Ensures Even Cooking
Whenever I’m cooking ground meat for chili or tacos, I’m always worried about missing some pink spots and giving my family food poisoning. (I’ve been burned before which causes me to be very paranoid about it!) Sure, I can stir it around with a wooden spoon, but who knows how hygienic that is and I still feel like I miss some pieces. This mix and chop tool is actually exactly what I need to ensure even cooking – you can twirl it around to mix up the meat and press down to chop it into really small pieces. You can also use it for things like macerating strawberries for shortcake or mixing up pie fillings, so it’s definitely worth the little space it’ll take up in your kitchen!
This Marinade Injector Tool For More Exciting Dinners
What’s for dinner? Oh, plain grilled or roasted chicken again – boring! This meat marinade injector makes ho hum dinners a thing of the past. I can use it to add so much flavor to meat we’re grilling or roasting, and it works so much faster than traditional marinating. Simply fill the injector with whatever yummy mix you like – I love olive oil, lemon juice, and freshly chopped garlic, or just bottled Italian dressing if I’m in a hurry – then infuse the meat with your marinade. I’m so much more excited about chicken for dinner now!
This Pot And Pan Organizer Is A Kitchen Lifesaver
If you could see the inside of my cabinets right now you might be shocked at the disorganization (or feel like commisserating since yours looks the same!). This pot and pan organizer is what I need to keep some law and order in my kitchen storage. I like how it holds each cooking vessel apart, so you’re not pulling out the pan you need from a huge stack and toppling the whole tower. You can also turn it on its side to organize pan lids, which is another whole messy story. It’s easy to install in your cabinets and adds near-custom storage since you can adjust it to fit your needs!
This Wine Aerator Is Portable, Works Fast
I’m not a wine drinker, but my husband is known to often have a glass with dinner. We normally buy mid-range wine which is good but could taste a lot better with this portable wine aerator. It’s battery-operated and fits in your pocket, so you can take it with you to restaurants or use at home easily. Just press the button and in 15-45 seconds, tiny bubbles of oxygen infuse your wine, opening up the flavor and aroma so you get the optimal glass every time. It’d also make a great present for the wine lovers in your life!
This Ice Cream Maker Is Just The Right Size
I love our big ice cream maker, but the problem is it takes up all the room in the freezer and also makes a ton of ice cream, which I then want to devour. This compact ice cream maker takes up almost no freezer space and makes just the right amount for one or two people! Just turn it on with the push of a button, then in 30 minutes or less, you have 1.6 cups of ice cream to share…or not. I can’t wait to make fresh fruit sorbet and fro-yo, too. Conveniently, it comes with a little spoon so you can dig right in once it’s done churning!
This Callus Remover Works Fast
My neighbor, who also has dry, cracked feet like me, highly highly recommended this callus remover for the smoothest feet of her life, and I can’t wait to try it. It seems no matter the season, my heels are raggedy and snag on the bedsheets which is maybe one of the grossest feelings in the world! This callus remover works like a cheese grater, which is also gross, but really works to get rid of nasty dead skin and leave baby smooth feet in its wake.
These Closet Hangers Add So Much Space
I share a pretty small closet with my husband in our old farmhouse – maybe people had a lot fewer clothes back then? -but either way, it’s packed to the gills. These genius clothes hangers work by hanging vertically, so you get so much more storage space as opposed to the traditional horizontal hangers. I don’t know why I haven’t come across these sooner – they’re exactly what we need to make the closet work for both of us!
This Dog Paw Washer Is A Must For Clean Floors
We’re getting a puppy later this year, and I’m more than a little concerned about the mess he’s going to make around the house. One thing I can control, though, is how dirty his paws are after playing in the mud. Just fill this paw washer with water then the tiny nubs inside gently clean off your pup’s messy paws in a second. It’ll also be useful for winter walks where he may get road salt on his paws, which can be harmful and burn the sensitive skin. It comes in three sizes to match how big or small your pup is so you can get a custom fit!
These Shoe Deodorizers Are So Cute
While shoe deodorizers and cute aren’t words I thought I’d ever say in the same sentence, here we are! These “boot bananas” take the stink out of your shoes with lavender, lemon, patchouli & tea tree essential oils with antimicrobial properties, so they not only smell great but clean up bacteria, too. My kids’ shoes get incredibly stinky for some reason, no matter if they’re wearing natural fiber socks or if I spray them with some (probably toxic) deodorizer. I like that these ones are all natural so I feel safe using them for my kids and my flats, too, if I’m being honest!
This Java Sok Absorbs Condensation, Insulates
I drink an iced tea almost daily from Dunkin’ Donuts (or insert your favorite coffee shop here), and while I love the taste, two things I don’t like are how fast it warms up if I forget to drink it for a while and how much the condensation drips all over my desk and self. Problem solved – this Java Sok comes in multiple sizes, slips right over yor plastic cup and insulates while absorbing condensation, keeping your drink colder and drier while you sip. It comes in a ton of colors and a few patterns so you can find your fave (mine’s camo or bright blue).
This Slicer Tool Is So Convenient
Since I’m doing virtually all my shopping online lately, I’ve got quite a few boxes to open every week. I typically use an open pair of scissors, but end up cutting or stabbing myself if I’m not careful. A much better idea is this slicing tool, which works on everything from packing tape to plastic packaging to cardboard boxes. It has a replaceable ceramic blade that’s safer on fingers but stays sharp enough to do its job. Even better? A portion of proceeds from sales goes to fund autism research.
These Dryer Balls Cut Drying Time
It happens over and over again – I throw a load of laundry in the dryer and when the timer goes off, the polyester work-out wear is bone dry while the all-cotton clothing is still soggy. I can dry much more efficiently and faster with these organic wool dryer balls that ensure even drying and fluffy clothes without dryer sheets or chemical softeners! These will save you money in the long run on electricity bills since your dryer doesn’t have to work as hard or as long. Plus, the cute dino design means they can double as baby or pet toys when they’re off duty!
This Water Cup Helps You Stay Hydrated
I’m guilty of not drinking enough water during the day, for sure. I need this HydraTrak Water Tumbler that has rainbow elastics you can move as you drink, keeping track of how much water you’re consuming! It’s an easy and fun way to stay on top of hydration goals, and people say it’s really helped motivate them to drink more water and stick with a new habit. You can also wear the rainbow elastics as bracelets, which your kids might think is really cool (while you secretly get them to hydrate – win/win)!
This Garage Door Rack Adds So Much Storage
If your garage is anything like mine, it’s pretty disorganized, with random tools, rakes, shovels and cleaning devices pushed up against the walls and taking up valuable floor space. These garage door racks can help with that – from storing fishing rods to brooms, rakes and more it can get stuff off your floor in a genius way! They get major points for being easy to install and use, just measure your garage doors for the right fit. Things are about to get so much more organized out there in a hurry!
These Kids’ Binoculars Are Great For Young Explorers
My kids are always clamoring to use my husbands grown-up binoculars to watch the birds feeding or catch sight of the fat little bunny that frequents our garden to eat all my veggies. These kids’ binoculars are a great way for young explorers to get up close and personal with nature. The binoculars are compact and shock proof, so great for little hands, and they come with a neck band so they don’t get dropped by accident. The controls are easy to use but work just like the adult version so kids can get a great view. We’re taking these to our local nature park so the kids can see turtles, frogs, dragonflies and whatever else is hanging out that day!
This Sweatshirt Looks So Cozy
I’m pretty much all athleisure all the time, and this slouchy sweatshirt is right up my alley. It’s made of a polyester and spandex blend, so it’s the perfect lightweight layer without making you over heat. It’s also slouchy enough to layer so you can wear it in all seasons! It comes in a bunch of colors (the ombre versions are so pretty!) and has over 300 rave reviews. I love how the hood looks like a cowl neck, too – it’s the little details that elevate it from a regular sweatshirt to a cool one.
These Leggings Have Pockets
Like I said, my wardrobe’s 99% athleisure, and these leggings are high up on my “want it now” list. They come in so many colors, two lengths and all have POCKETS. I love going for long walks but often have no place to put my phone so I can listen to podcasts, carrying it is just a pain. I live for convenient, comfy clothes and these leggings definitely hit the spot. Plus, they have nearly 1,000 glowing reviews for comfort and quality without the high price of spendy brands. Yes, please!
This Dress Is Like Wearing A Tee Shirt
I love clothes that look like you put in some effort but in reality feel like you’re wearing jammies or your favorite tee. This long-sleeved dress fits the bill perfectly – it’s basically a longer, super flattering version of a comfy tee, but looks like you actually put some thought into your outfit. I like that you can wear it whatever the weather – add a blanket scarf and thick leggings in the fall and winter, just pair it with sandals in the spring and summer – totally versatile and easy peasy. It comes in a bunch of colors, too, and the reviewer photos are so stylish on all body types.
This Camo Sweatshirt Comes Highly Recommended
My friend Robyn has this camo sweatshirt and loves it to pieces. A good camo print is basically like a neutral, it goes with everything and looks good with other patterns like florals or stripes, too. This one comes in a handful of camo colors, from subtle to bold, and has the perfect slouchy fit that works with leggings or skinny jeans. It could easily go from the gym to errands to an outing with ease, it’s that versatile. And it looks so cozy every time my friend wears it, I want it now!
This Ruffle Tunic Is So Cute
Fancy basics are a staple in my closet, I like the little extra details that make a piece of clothing special and this ruffle tunic definitely falls into that category. It looks great with leggings, jeans or real pants, so you can dress it up or down. You can also layer a sweater or jacket over it and have the ruffle peek out the bottom for a cute look. I like the bum-covering length, especially when wearing leggings, and the ruffle is such a fun, romantic touch on what’s basically a comfy tee.
This Sports Bra Is Made For Larger Busts
I’m always on the lookout for a sports bra that comes highly rated for larger busts, and they’re usually way more money than I’d like to spend on something so utilitarian. I was so excited when I found this one that comes in sizes from 32B to 42F and has the same features as the expensive bras but only costs a little over $20! I work out a couple times a week, so I need a handful bras to keep in rotation, and if I had to spend $60 on every bra I’d go broke at the rate they need to be refreshed! This one’s affordable, made of high-quality material and has rave revies for great high impact support and durability.
These Joggers Look So Comfy
After reading some of the 8,596 stellar reviews for these joggers, I couldn’t want them more. They come in three styles including capri and wide leg, way over 50 colors and patterns and they cost less than $20. These would be great for matching to school or sports team colors or just every day wear in your favorite color. I can’t believe I haven’t seen these before since I’m on Amazon all.the.time. but I’m so glad I finally got the memo!
This Car Phone Holder Is Flexible
I’ve got a couple of those car phone holders that clip onto your vents, and maybe my phone’s too heavy but they always fall out. So annoying, and dangerous when you’re driving and trying to see directions! Plus it blocks the heat or A/C since it takes up the vent – no bueno. This one suctions onto your dashboard and can be raised up or down depending on your preference, plus it can be used for video calls or watching videos if you attach it to your desktop!
This Bluetooth Speaker Is Small But Mighty
I’m so in love with this tiny but mighty retro-looking Bluetooth speaker that fits in the palm of your hand but delivers BIG sound. You can use it inside or out, and it lets you answers phone calls, control Alexa, or just listen to your favorite podcasts. It comes in a bunch of cute colors and has over 1,000 glowing reviews – I can’t wait to set this little guy up in my kitchen so I can stay entertained during cooking or dish duty.
This Screen Cleaner Really Works
This little screen cleaner packs a big fingerprint and grime-busting punch! Use one side with the tech-safe cleaning solution to break up dirt and whatever else is sullying your screen, then use the other to polish it to a factory-fresh finish. It takes seconds and leaves your devices sparkling, plus it’s refillable so you can use it forever. My screens are full of tiny fingerprints from my two littles, plus food and whatever else they can get into. I need this stat so I can finally see what’s under all that gunk!
This Key Finder Will Save My Sanity
I lose my keys, sunglasses and other necessities on the daily, sometimes multiple times a day. This key finder is the solution to saving my sanity – simply attach one of the tags to whatever constantly gets lost then press the corresponding color button to set off a loud beep so you can find your stuff! It finds your stuff if it’s within 98 feet, and even has a built-in flashlight if you have to go searching under couches or in other tricky spots. Heck, I’d even put it on my kids if they’d let me.
This AirPod Case Is So Charming
Once I finally get some AirPods I definitely want this AirPod case to go with them! The friendly little Corgi is so adorable and conveniently holds your earphones in an easy-to-find container. It includes a clip so you can attach it to the inside of your bag and always locate it in seconds. Plus you can charge the AirPods without taking them out of the case, which is super convenient.
