2018 Amazon Favorites | 1st Half

I've had an Amazon account since 2007 when I received my first gift card to Amazon. I bought a few things here or there but it wasn't until I got hooked up to Prime that I bought every day items.

I also made this into a video, you can check that out here and make sure to subscribe if you aren't already!!

Instead of doing a post on what I ordered recently, there's a linkup for that at the beginning of the month with Tanya at The Other Side of the Road that I'm planning on linking up with on July 3rd, I thought I'd share the items I've picked up over the last six months and am absolutely loving, using pretty much all the time. The links are to my preferred smile charity organization - The Antioch Partners.

Vented Wet brush - Ya'll I have had vented brushes before because when my stylist uses something on my hair I like to see if I can replicate and buy all the same products. I already had a wet brush, but not a vented one. I'm not sure how I found out that Wet Brush had one but I decided to order it and I love it for blow drying.

Wool dryer balls - We have had dryer balls for a few years now and after our first set fell apart we checked Amazon to see what they had, how the reviews were and what the price difference was. We've only been using these for six months, but you get twice as many for a third of the price. FYI dryer balls replace your dryer sheets.

Acrylic Monitor Riser - I have had this on a couple of my wish lists for at least a year and finally bit the bullet. I'm glad I didn't get it the first few times because I changed my mind from black to acrylic and I've been so happy with it. I love having a place to put my laptop on my desk and my keyboard goes under the large monitor or vice versa.

Lazy Makeup Toiletry Bag - I remember seeing this ad on Instagram and whenever I would click on it, the price just seemed too high when I have makeup bags I got for free, thanks gift with purchase! The reviews also weren't good because at the time they were coming from another country and taking WEEKS without people actually reading that when they purchased. I bought mine, knowing it would take about a month to get here and now you can get it Prime, of course. The only thing I would change is a handle, like a train case. Otherwise, love it!

Scarleton Stylish Reversible Tote Bag - Compare to Nordstrom - I have talked about this before on my January 2018 favorites and I still use it all the time. A coworker got the brown/pink combo and she uses hers everyday too.

The Greatest Showman Soundtrack - Another product that was in a favorites post. If you still buy CDs which I know most people don't, check out Amazon before buying somewhere else. A lot of times the price is cheaper and you not only get a cd, you get the digital copy immediately after purchasing in the Amazon music app. I've ordered CDs as gifts for people and I get a copy of their music. Winning all around.

Selfie Ring Light - I Mentioned in my May Favorites Youtube video and on Instsagram Stories but forgot to talk about it here. I tried a couple of these and this one was the cheaper of the two AND worked better. It's not the best light, but for around $8 it works for what I need. I use it if it's really dark to light up my face (no natural lighting, don't expect that) and to get better lighting on products or things when I'm talking about them on Instagram!

Disposable Plastic Cups with flat lids - I love these. They're totally unnecessary but I don't like how the coffee gets in the reusable tumblers with lids and straws.

What have you been loving that you bought off Amazon?!

Linking up with Amanda for Friday favorites!!
