For a girl like me, who is a full time mom and part time work from home entrepreneur, Amazon has become my life’s savior. And because of that, today begins a very big holiday for me. It’s PRIME DAY! The first of a 2 day Summer Black Friday of sorts. If you are not an Amazon Prime member yet, what are you doing with your life? Go get your membership.
Why should I be a Amazon Primer, you ask? Well, to start, you can have most anything you want, shipped directly to your front door in 48 hours or less. (Which trust me, with a newborn baby, it is EXTREMELY handy) You also get access to Amazon tv shows, movies, etc. And, it’s only 99$ a year. That’s less than a dollar a day for basically a life concierge. Think about it, imagine you’re at the airport, going on vacation and you realize you forgot your swimsuit and a book. You can literally have your needs shipped to your hotel in less than 24 hours. Situations like this happen, Prime is that amazing assistant who hooks you up.
It’s also a great bargaining resource. For example, I have been hearing about Skin Ceuticals C.E. Ferulic Serum for years. It’s supposed to help with sun damage and prevent any future damage as well. It will set you back about $130. On Amazon, you can do your research and thoroughly read reviews which is like the best shopping assistant ever. You can be guided to what’s right for you. I was guided to find this amazing TIMELESS C+ E Ferulic Acid Serum. Which is only $17. It’s the same ingredients, just a different brand and label. Which is great to try out, see if you like it and then determine whether its worth the investment for you or not. So, basically Amazon helps you to be a savvy shopper.
My AMAZON MUSTS
My Amazon cart is always filled up, with everything from diapers to pens to lightbulbs. You should check out my entire Amazon favorites collection. It has a lot of good stuff. I especially appreciate the things available for the home which I labeled home accents.
Every woman needs this Kimono robe. I have 3 of them and now this muave color is on my list. I love pink, but secretly it is actually lavender that is my favorite color. I live in this robe. It’s is the perfect thing to wear at home to relax, but still makes you feel fabulous and beautiful. it’s delicate and soft and your significant other will think it makes you look sexy. Trust me. You will love it.
So right now, the NORDSTROM Anniversary sale is on and popping. But everything I want is always already sold out. Like the famous Kardashian leopard blanket or the Adidas Swift sneakers. AMAZON always has the things that you can’t find or are sold out elsewhere. Like this INCREDIBLY SOFT, NEVER WANT TO LET GO OF cozy leopard blanket.
If you are big on saving your skin from the sun, then you need this hat. It’s perfect for Summer travel because you can roll it up or bend it. It’s flexible and very chic. It has a super wide brim which does wonders for covering your face, too. This is also great for walking your dog or for me, walking Roman around in his stroller.
Girl, get yourself a laptop stand if you ever work from home. It’s essential that your posture is right and you aren’t slouching while working. Save your back some future pain.
Okay, I haven’t talked about this much but I am going to do a post on this. Phillips HUE has changed my life. Long story short, its an app that connects wirelessly to your lightbulbs and can dim them, brighten them or change their color. I am all about color at home, you can literally change your energy and your life. There are so many benefits. We have them on our nightstands, in our living area and kitchen. REVOLUTIONARY.
My girlfriend got this cute white faux Gucci phone case & I thought it was so cute, I have to have it in baby pink!
Trays. We all need trays in our life to organize the things in our homes. I love these acrylic trays with handles because you can choose your metal on the handle, silver or gold. You can also select the size, so you can customize it to fit whatever you need. Get yourself some, they can corral your remotes, your beauty products, perfumes, kitchen accents, jewelry, etc. I love the fact that they have handles because you can put food or drinks on them and serve your guests or serve yourself breakfast and coffee in bed.
K, so we have to discuss silk pillowcases. Want to keep your skin fresh, hair frizz free and sleep well? get yourself a set of them. I love the variety of colors, too.
While we talk beauty, do yourself a favor and start removing ALL the hair on your face. Today. This chic little hair remover is sweeping the nation. When you remove the hair on your entire face, your skincare seeps in easier helping you to get a better glow.
Last but not least, you know that candle that burns at Anthropologie and every time you walk in you think, ‘it smells so good in here’? That Capri blue candle is infamous. Well, that candle comes in pink and you should have one! I mean, why not?!
Don’t forget to check out the rest of my favorites. Happy Shopping! Love, Ashlina
