My Favorite Buys on Amazon in August

Amazon has a never-ending list of things we need and want, it can be hard and overwhelming how to find things on the endless website. And since I am an Amazon expert due to my 7,296 Amazon orders since quarantine hit. Yes, I plead the 5th, I miiiiight be a little dramatic, but do you really expect anything different from me? I was furloughed for months on end and my Amazon addiction hasn’t stopped.

I spend my free time looking forward to what packages will magically appear on my doorstep. If you’re like me and after you’ve baked the banana bread that everyone made on TikTok, tried (& failed) the sourdough starter kit, you’ve turned to endlessly scrolling Amazon a quarantine hobby, then I have a treat for you. Here’s some of my favorites and the best of the best, from my cart then doorstep to yours.

Rachel Hollis – Girl, Stop Apologizing

Book Cover of Rachel Hollis Girl Wash Your Face


I was so excited for this book to come out that I ordered it right away and could not put it down. It came out in a time where I truly needed it in my life and I loved it so much that I not only ordered in a tangible copy but also on audible so I could listen to it as I commuted. Let me tell you, you will be able to relate to this book no matter what season of life you are in.

Square Tortoise Sunglasses


Chic & Cute Brown Square SunglassesI’m a budget sunglasses junkie. Though I own a couple of “nice” pairs of sunnies, those hardly get any use in my daily life. I love a good pair of sunnies that are cheap (easily replaceable) and cute. These sunnies are durable enough for me to throw them around in my purse and for $14, if anything happens to them I won’t sweat it. Bonus: they look like they cost more than they actually do.


Handmade Wool Dryer Balls

The Best Wool Dryer Balls


These are a game-changer for those who like dryer sheets but want a cleaner and more sustainable option. They not only leave your clothes smelling fresh, but they also speed up the time your clothes need to be in the dryer. It’s 2020 and who has time to wait for their clothes to be dry anymore? These specific balls are not only affordable but also eco-friendly, fragrance-free, and hypoallergenic.

Chic Beach BagThe Cutest Beach Bag You Need From Amazon


This straw beach bag is big, durable, and perfect for all of the beach essentials you may need for a full day of fun in the sun. It’s rattan so it goes with literally everything and at a whopping $20.00 price point – you can use it for the summer then toss it when it gets too beat up.

Reusable Cup

The Best Reusable Cup With Straw


I say this with all seriousness- can you ever have enough of these? I live my life by the 28 oz blush tumbler with the flip-top lid with straw. I get SO many compliments on it and these work like the typical Yeti’s but without breaking your bank. They come in many sizes and many colors. So no matter how thirsty you are or what your favorite color is – they have your next go-to cup.

Lint Remover & Sweater Defuzzer

Lint Remover & Defuzzer

This may not be glamorous or fun – but it sure is useful! You know those sweaters that get the balls after a few wears and once that happens it’s just not as cute. I have a solution for you!! This rechargeable defuzzer works on not only sweaters, but also coats, scarfs, gloves, sofas, leggings, and your bedding. It’s small so it’s easily transported when traveling (just in case.)

Gold Flatware

Gold Silverware


I know I’m not the only blogger who’s always on the lookout for a cute set of flatware for some kind of prop. This flatware doesn’t only come in gold, you can get it in silver as well as “dipped” in other colors. The unique and stylish design will transform your plate!

Neon Pink Bikini

Cute & Durable Cheap Bikini


I absolutely love this bikini! It’s the perfect amount of cleavage and cheeky. I have huge hips and it sits perfectly on them, not giving the slightest bit of muffin top. I think the ruffles are distracting enough so it would look good on any body type. I have the hot pink, and it’s like neon pink. I thought it would wash me out, but it doesn’t. It’s a fun color. They have literally soooo many colors to choose from depending on what your bikini collection needs.

Bikini Cover Up

A very cute white/beige beach cover up


Now that you have your beach bag and your bikini, the only thing missing is your bikini cover-up! I love this one so much, it’s perfect for the pool or the beach and if you decide to stop somewhere before/after it could even look like a dress. I have the beige and love it, but it also comes in a variety of colors. The side slits give it a little extra, without being too much extra.

Workout Tank

The perfect Workout tanks

These racerback tanks are perfect for working out or more of an athleisure look. They have an exaggerated armhole which is perfect for some breathing room when working out and a fun strappy sports bra. They are super lightweight and I love that you can get three color options!

Natural Sea Grass Storage Basket

Grass Storage Bin

I love this for anywhere to put anything in! It goes with so many different styles and it’s perfect for things you want to keep out, but get out of the way. You can put anything from blankets to toys to decor inside. It also folds in the middle to create a bowl shape which would also look cute for a plant it in!
