My Amazon Favorites: May

Since you guys love these Amazon favorites posts, I’m continuing them this month. There are so many items I love buying on Amazon and today I’ll be sharing a few more of them with you.

Click directly on the collage below for details to each item!



1. Women’s Socks

I’ve been in need of some new running socks, and after buying THESE ONES for my boys for Christmas, I bought a set for myself. They’re crazy soft and great for running, hanging around the house, or sleeping in (if you’re a sock sleeper like me!)

2. Makeup Sponges

If you guys use beauty blenders, these are a great dupe that work just as well and are a fraction of the price! For best results with these little blenders, get them wet and squeeze all the water out so they’re damp when you blend your makeup.

3. Night Light

Sanny has been having trouble sleeping without a light on at night, and a little plug in light doesn’t cut it for him. I found this big night light on Amazon and he’s obsessed with it. It has a few color settings, and three levels of white light brightness.

4. Pearl Hair Clips

I’ve been seeing those adorable pearl hair clips everywhere, but wasn’t sure if I would like them on me or not. So I picked up this set on Amazon for less than $10 so I could try the trend without spending a ton. They’re well made and adorable!

5. Harry Potter Tee

I bought this fun tee for my 9 year old for his birthday last month. Everywhere we go we get comments on it — it’s just such a fun tee for those Harry Potter lovers! It also comes in adult sizes HERE!

6. Revlon Hair Dryer and Volumizer

Am I still talking about this blow dryer hair tool? Yep. It’s that good. Every time I talk about it, you guys tell me you’re obsessed with it. I promise you, it’s worth every penny. I wrote a whole review and shared a video RIGHT HERE!

7. Vitamin C Serum

I’ve been obsessed with this serum for years now, ever since my esthetician recommended it. It has Hyaluronic Acid & Vitamin E in it, so it helps with fine lines, brightness, firmness, and more. I love that I can get it right on Amazon!


8. Portable Charger

I carry this portable charger with me EVERYWHERE. It charges my phone up to 7 times before it needs to be recharged, and it’s small enough to slip in my purse and take with me everywhere. It comes in a little mesh pouch so I just curl up a charging cord in there with it so it’s ready to go anytime. They also have an EVEN SMALLER ONE HERE.

9. Eyebrow Gel

If you have sparse eyebrows, this waterproof eyebrow gel is for you! I use it every single day (I wear the color brunette) and my eyebrows stay on all day long. For best results, apply it to clean skin without any other oils or creams on. Let it fully dry, apply the rest of your products and makeup, and then touch up with a brow powder and angled brush. I promise you, it’s the best. 


10. L’Oreal Primer

You know when you put on mascara and your eyes look bright and amazing and then within an hour, everything droops down? This primer counteracts all of that. Your lashes stay in place all day long and never move! Just apply one coat of this and then apply your mascara.

11. Self-Tanner

It’s almost summer – time to get your self-tan on! THIS BRAND is my favorite, and lately, I’ve been trying their darker shade. It only takes one coat to get the color I want, so the bottle lasts even longer! The only issue I have with it is that the solution is a little thicker than the original so you have to work really fast and put some effort into rubbing with the mitt so it doesn’t dry before you’ve blended it all onto your body. I share some other application tips and my favorite mitt for applying IN THIS POST!

12. Hair Ties

I’ve talked about these hair ties before, but they are far and away the best hair ties I’ve ever used. Especially for working out. I wrap them around my top knot or ponytail three times and it does. not. move.

    I have read through other blogs, but they are bloated and more confusing than your post. I hope you continue to have such quality posts to share with everyone! I believe a lot of people will be surprised to read this article!

    My mother and I, as single parents, brought up 10 years of social protection in Northern Ireland, preferring to be for us and our education, money was strained, life was hard, but our childhood was great, and more importantly, my mother taught us to believe in ourselves and that we can be what we want to be. Talk about copycrafter now. For about 20 years, my mother’s life revolved around her 2 children, sacrificing literally everything to be sure that we would succeed. I don’t think I’ve seen her buy the same for a t-shirt that she would rather give to others than her.
