If you’re shopping online more than usual these days, you’re not alone…

Being home during a quarantine means of time to shop and reflect on some of my favorite buys! These are things around my home that I simply CANNOT live without (maybe I could but I’m much happier with them!). If you’re looking for some reviews, shopping around, or you’re between Netflix binges and ready to scroll around, check out some of the things I have around my home that I could not live without!


HOME

Dyson Cordless Vacuum

Favorite Buys l Amber Brogdon Photography l Amazon Best Vacuum

My only regret is not getting this sooner! Seriously don’t know how we lived without this. Going cordless was a game changer! Lightweight and easy to maneuver. It makes me actually want to vacuum! 😉

 

Shark Steam Mop
Favorite Buys l Amber Brogdon Photography l Best Amazon Steam Mop

Goodbye old mop + bucket! I use this once a week to clean + sanitize our hardwood floors + tile. Nothing like the clean feeling it leaves!

 

Keurig Mini

Because every morning starts with a cup of coffee, and what better way to make it than with the cutest Keurig color they make?! It brings a fun pop of color to our kitchen, and I went from a larger model to the mini for the sake of saving space- haven’t regretted it!

 

Corkcicle Water Bottle
Favorite Buys l Amber Brogdon Photography l Amazon Favorite Water Bottle

I use this to help me increase my water intake every day! It keeps the ice + water cold forever! 

 

Corkcicle Cup
Favorite Buys l Amber Brogdon Photography l Amazon Favorite Water Bottle

Another favorite because of how well it holds temp! 

 

Casper Pillow

Favorite Buys l Amber Brogdon Photography l Best Amazon Pillow

I loooove this pillow! It’s just the right combination of soft + supportive. Literally like sleeping on a cloud. Pricey, but worth it. 

 

Ember Coffee Mug
Favorite Buys l Amber Brogdon Photography l Amazon Favorite Coffee Mug

My inlaws got me this for Christmas and I was SO excited! If you know one thing about me, it’s that I don’t like cold or even warm coffee. HOT all the way! Even in the summer 😉 This cute mug keeps my coffee at the temperature I set, and I can even adjust it from the app on my phone! I don’t know how I lived without this mug – honestly one of my favorite buys ever!

 

Marble Gold Coasters

Favorite Buys l Amber Brogdon Photography l Best Amazon Coaster

Super cute + functional.

 

Cat Water Fountain
Favorite Buys l Amber Brogdon Photography l Amazon Favorite

This may make me a crazy cat mama + I’m okay with that 😉 It keeps the cat’s water fresh + makes it fun for them to drink out of the fountain! They love it 🙂 

 

Pineapple Decor
Favorite Buys l Amber Brogdon Photography l Cute Pineapple Decor

A pineapple symbolizes hospitality, friendliness, and warmth, so it makes the perfect cute addition to the bookshelves in our living room. 🙂 


BOOKS

A Simplified Life
Favorite Buys l Amber Brogdon Photography l Amazon Best Books

I love these so much, I wrote a whole blog post on them (a must check out for fellow book lovers!)

 

Grace Not Perfection

 

When Less Becomes More

 

Pressing Pause Devotional

These devotionals are the perfect bite-sized words of truth that come at just the right time. I love starting my mornings with these.

Jesus Calling

Sacred Rest


 

HEALTH + BEAUTY

Bondi Sands Self Tanner
Favorite Buys l Amber Brogdon Photography l Best Amazon self tanner

I’m no beauty blogger, but this came highly recommended when I was looking for the perfect self-tanner, and let me tell you, this is it! I’ve tried many with no luck- I always either had streaks or it looked fake. This is AMAZING, you simply apply it, let it dry, and no shower is necessary after! (AND you don’t feel sticky!) Best part? It looks 100% real- just a sunkissed glow 🙂 If you’re looking for a product that makes you look and feel good, this is one of my favorite buys for sure!

 

Beachwaver
Favorite Buys l Amber Brogdon Photography l Best Amazon Hair Curler

Because let’s be real, I can’t curl my hair with a regular curling iron. Ha! This is a game-changer and does the work for me. Boom, done 🙂 

 

Revlon Hair Dryer + Volumizer

Favorite Buys l Amber Brogdon Photography l Best Amazon Hair

All of the beauty bloggers were raving over this, so of course, I had to try it, and now I’m obsessed! Cuts blowdry time in half- all while giving you volume! Highly recommend!

 

Loreal DoubleWear Foundation
Favorite Buys l Amber Brogdon Photography l Best Amazon Foundation

I love the way this foundation covers + stay all day!

 

Beautyblender

 

I only like this brand! The cheaper ones don’t work as well for me. To use with my concealer, see below 🙂 

 

Tarte ShapeTape Concealer

Because this mama has dark circles. And this at least helps to cover them some! Best concealer I’ve found.


 

BABY

Sound Machine

One for Beckett’s room + one for our room 😉 The only way we can sleep now. Tons of different white sounds + relaxing music and adjustable volume. We bring it with us on trips! One of our must-haves. 

 

Kyte Sleepsack

These are one of those pricey things I swear by. I’ve never felt anything softer in my life! Beckett has loved these since he was just a little thing. A safe, wearable blanket. We’ve tried many brands, but these are 100% worth their price. 

 

Honest Wipes

These are what we’ve always used for Beckett + love them! They’re thick + the best we’ve found. 

 

Hope you find this helpful! Happy shopping! Let me know what you try out!

Full Disclosure: These links direct you to my Amazon Storefront which I do earn commission from if you choose to purchase (it’s not added to your total at all! It’s just a nice perk for recommending all my favs with you!)

xoxo,

Amber
