My favorite home and beauty items from Amazon! (It's Prime Day!)

Hey hey! It's one of my favorite shopping days of the year! This year it's actually TWO days. Amazon has extended their Prime Day sale!

They have great deals on all kinds of stuff and I like getting a jump on Christmas gifts. I always like seeing the favorites of other bloggers so I always share some of mine with you on this day!

This year I broke them up into categories -- decor, beauty and home items.

Let's start with my favorite -- home decor! I blogged about these LONG drapes here...they are such a good deal!:
Super long drapes for a great price

We ended up getting these lighter panels later (the original darker panels went in another room) because I was so happy with them. You can find them on Amazon here and they come in a number of colors. I haven't found a better deal for long drapes anywhere!

When I got our two coffee tables to make one big one, I searched forever for the perfect ottomans we could keep underneath. I found these and they are awesome!:


The perfect neutral ottoman

They are the perfect neutral color and are cushy but sturdy enough too. Love them! You can find these light colored ottomans here.

I find a LOT of light fixtures on Amazon too. My pretty upright sconces on the dining room built ins are a fave:

 And these black and brass sconces that I've used in a couple rooms:

I've hardwired one and the rest I've used this lighting trick to light them without electricity

I wrote about some great Walmart finds earlier this year, and loved this console table so much I had to get it:

Turns out the price was the same on Amazon and shipping was faster (and free)! I absolutely love the lines of it -- it looks so great in our basement family room. I was quite impressed with the quality too. 

OK, onto the beauty/fashion portion of this shopping spree! ;) 

This small crossbody purse is a favorite Amazon purchase -- I use it all of the time, especially in the summer:

It's small and compact but still holds a ton! It comes in a TON of colors too. 

I've shared my love of these hair masks before -- they work SO well and are super easy to use in the shower:

My hair feels and smells amazing after I use them!

You can find two of my absolute favorite hair tools on Amazon. The Bedhead wave styler tool is the updated version of a crimper (from the 80's):

I LOVE how this makes my hair look! It gives it big waves and it lasts two days easy. It's my favorite for "going out" hair. :) 

And this Revlon volumizing hair dryer is the BOMB. I use it almost every time I wash my hair and haven't touched my straightener in months!:

It gives you that just from the salon look and makes my hair so soft and full of volume. I think I'm going to buy another one to have on hand just in case it poops out -- I love it that much!

This roomy leather bag still looks like the day I got it years ago! Actually, better! It's a beautiful bag with tons of room inside. It is my go-to for the fall and winter months and I love it:

This miracle gel nail polish is the best I've found and actually stays on! And if it stays on me, with all of the DIY I do, you know it's good:

The topper polish is a must as well, it will really keep the polish on longer. Love this stuff!

Last but not least when it comes to Amazon favorites...some of the best household items I've found. 

My friend shared this awesome felt caddy and I had to get it -- it's perfect for our smaller games and card games: 
felt diaper/game/storage caddy

The uses are endless -- it's sold as a diaper holder, which is great too. It's so roomy inside and has a ton of pockets. You can adjust the middle divider and move it where you want, or remove it all together. The handles make it super easy to carry around. This specific version is no longer available, but this one is almost identical

This book by Marie Kondo changed my life and because of that I will keep sharing it! You can read about my epic Konmari decluttering session years ago (and why I'll never have to do it again):

This Conair fabric steamer is so handy to have around the house -- my husband loves it so much he'll take it when he travels:

It's awesome for drapes or bedding too! 

I bought this tub tray before we moved into the house because I was so excited about our deep soaking tub. I use it every time I take a bath! It's functional (love that wine glass slot) and looks great too:

The Scrub Daddy sponges are the absolute BEST! I will never go back to regular sponges. They clean great (stay hard in cooler water, soften up in warm water):

They never get stinky and food doesn't get caught in the sponge. We prefer the "mommy" version that has a soft side as well.  

We don't do a full keto diet, but I do try to eat low carb as much as possible. This Simply Keto cook book has a ton of great recipes:

Our favorites are the chili and breakfast casserole. There are so many yummy recipes though, I'm working my way through the book! 

We bought another version of these extension cords years ago and loved them so much we recently got more for when we travel: 
extension cord with USB

They have mutiple plugs but the best part is the USB chargers built in. They are great for by the bedside! 

There you go! We use all of these items often and love each and every one! I hope you found something you'll love in your home as well! Do you have any Amazon favorites, or have you tried any of these?

By the way, while writing this post I found out my beloved Dash buttons have been discontinued! I'm so bummed...we LOVE these! I always looked forward to getting a couple more for super cheap on Prime Day! RIP Dash buttons:
