Aren´t we looking constantly for things to make our lives easier? I definitely do and Amazon really is a great source for pieces to get nowhere else. In times of the Coronavirus and staying at home a lot I have spend a great amount of time on there and found some awesome pieces.
Amazon Top 5 Household Gadgets
Here are my top 5 household gadgets I love to use and don´t want to miss.
Attachable Pasta Strainer // This is probably the most used gadget of all. It is so so convenient if you are cooking a ton of pasta cause you can easily attach it to your pot and drain all the water. Then you have hot pasta ready to serve.
Coffee Mug Warmer // Came across another bloggers post through this genious piece. Don´t we all know the perks of taking calls, opening doors or taking care of our babies all while our hot delicious cup of coffee is getting lukewarm?!
Multiple Hanger for Skirts // It is supposed to hang 4 pairs of skirts but you can easily double or triple it as the clips are strong enough so this means you can easily store up to 12 skirts on one hanger. If that isn´t a space saver for your closet I don´t know what is.
Fabric Shaver // The perfect tool to quickly remove fabric pills from your beloved clothes. Works quick and easy and leaves your clothing looking brandnew.
Floor Mop // I had a Swiffer up to date and ended up disliking it cause it didn´t really clean my floors. Just was a quick solution for inbetween cleanings. This item is really great. It comes with two microfibre cloths and an attachment for window cleaning. You can put your cleaning solution and water into the little container on the front and spray before you mop. It is super easy and not messy at all in comparison with a bucket full of water.
My top 5 items. Do you have specific pieces off of Amazon you can´t life without? I woul d love to hear about them.
it is finally March which means we are closer to Spring which hopefully means warmer weather and Spring looks and the other great event which hopefully takes place this month is giving birth to our baby girl.
But for now and since we are still waiting on everything I am sharing my February Amazon buys with you guys.
Golden Rectangular Earrings // I finally ordered another pair of these adorable golden earrings. Haven´t gotten them now but I really hope they arrive this time cause the mail has lost my first pair already. This style will work great with so many looks I have planned for spring and summer. Gold jewelry always looks best with a tan in the summer.
Baby´s First Year Blanket + Cards // Can´t wait to use this with baby girl. Really great quality of the muslin blanket and sturdy number cards. I think the set has a great value for under 25 Euro.
Set of Braided Headbands // If you are following my blog you might know I am a headband lover from the first second so I am always looking for new styles and colors I don´t have and let me tell you, this set of three is so comfortable also how gorgeous is the deep royal blue color!!!!!
Flanell Bow Headband // Saw this on a bunch of bloggers and reminded me of my childhood cause I had a piece like this when I was little. There are several styles available but of course I ended up getting the leopard print one. I am using it every evening when I am washing/cleaning my face.
Salad Chopper // Ordered this to chop my salad as I hate having big chunks of salad on my plate. It literally make me cook less salad cause I hate the messy eating. This is abolute perfect for it. Also works great with spaghetti if you like to eat them with a spoon and no mess.
Simple Modern Water Bottle // Pregnant or not, you are supposed to drink a lot of water to keep your body hyrated so I got this adorable water color in the mother-of-pearl color. Keep my water super cool which I prefer over anything else but it also comes with a second lid for hot beverages. So the cooling function will work the other way around too.
Hair Turban // I had one of these when I was younger – why are all of my hair accessories missing these days – so I got this one again. It has a button on the back so it holds all the wet hair perfectly after washing and the material is supposed to soak up all the excesive water that´s left in your hair to dry it quicker.
Cribsheet // Going to read this step by step. Depends on how far we are with baby girl but it it works until age two if I remember correctly. Holds tons of information. Definitely work a read.
Meat Masher // Super basic but totally convenient for cooking any type of minced meat. Provides lumps and everything will be cooked through equally. Also the consistency of the product you are using it on gets a lot smoother.
Hospital Nightgown // I always feel a lot more comfortable in my own clothes so I got this hospital inspired night gown. It has buttons alongside the back in case you need/want an epidural so it is basically designed for this case.
Letter Necklace // Got this in addition to my mama necklace with the letter E for our baby girl´s name. I love wearing both of them mixed together as the lenghts pair perfectly. Also available in silver if you aren´t a gold fan.
Pepper Spray // Not necessarily a must but I am walking Chloe most of the days alone so I am feeling better having something on me. Also I am not the fastest anymore so a little more precaution can´t hurt.
GG Statement Earrings // Hopefully they arrive soon cause aren´t they just beautiful with all the different colors.
Rolling Stones inspired Sweater // The number one sweater I have seen everywhere the last few weeks. I love mine a lot. Got a size small since they only sell unisex sizes and it still fits with the bump, thight but fits. Separate outfit post coming soon.
It has been a lot of stuff I have found this month but it also included some baby/pregnancy related products which I clearly need for my hospital bag (going to share all of these items in a different post but first I have to find out which ones I really need and which ones are good/crap).
the fresh year starts with a fresh amazon buys haul I wanted to share with you. So for the last months I have been ordering mostly baby products but I also got some other nice things I wanted to share with you.
I probably already said that but I love love love amazon. They carry everything you would ever want or need or probably don´t ever need in one shop.
Here are my January picks:
Acrylic bath organizer // I have seen these genius acrylic organizer called “Lazy Susan” on Rach Parcells post and knew immediately that I had to have them too. I had such a mess in my bathroom cabinets and was so tired of searching for stuff. These are super convenient and stylish too. Will make you life a lot easier.
carry-on luggage // I got this for you Rome trip in January we didn´t go cause I thought the colors theme is so beautiful and one of a kind and it will look great with my Neverfull. So now it waits for our next trip. Great quality for the price and it is also available in two other colors (blue and black with the cognac colored trim) and on sale very often.
maternity/nursing pj´s // Going to pack them into my hospital bag as my bump will still be there then but I also have to breastfeed the baby so I think this double version will come in pretty handy.
bracelet // This David Yurman dupe makes an awesome addition to the other two bracelets I already have. They are quite heavy and made of great quality for the price point of under 20 Euro. Pretty to stack or wear by itself.
Burt´s Bees baby oil // I originally wanted the mom oil for my bump but got this instead. Going to save it until baby is finally here.
nursing bra´s // They cheapest option with the best reviews. I got this set with 3 nude colored ones and also a set with gray, pink and black. I think they are made pretty well and hold up quite nice in the washing mashine. The snaps are easy to open and close with one hand and you can also adjust them in the back if they should feel to tight on you.
handbag organizer // I bought this about a week after getting my Luis Vuitton Neverfull cause the bag is huge and things got lost in the bag all the time.
I am sharing my last gift guide with you over here on my little blog today and it has been a near and dear one to my heart.
What to gift the expecting mom? The obvious would be something for the baby but that isn´t really what we want as there are a whole lot more opportunities than Christmas for that. If you know a thing that really helps a mom-to be to get through pregnancy by making it easier or more comfortable go for it, but only if you can really recommend it.
Expecting mom´s want to feel beautiful which isn´t always easy during pregnancy as it comes with a bunch of insecurities and bad days so gift presents that don´t add to that. It could be a pretty necklace with the baby´s name on it or a gorgeous shopper bag that could double as a diaper bag. It is not to hard to think of things. Also sets for pampering herself would make a great Christmas present.
