So this isn’t my monthly Amazon haul, but don’t worry, you’re still going to get one of those. The official haul is next Monday and you need to get excited, because it’s going to be great!
Today you are going to get a different type of Amazon post. And just like the title says, we’ll be talking about Amazon favorites, Amazon alternatives, and an Amazon Beauty Tools Sale that ends today.
Let’s Get Started!
AMAZON OPTIONS FOR ANNIVERSARY SALE ITEMS
I know there are some items in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale that have already sold out, so I’ve found some options for y’all for items I highlighted that are already gone! These options are also great for those of you that can’t shop the sale yet…or maybe those who just prefer shopping Amazon.
Click HERE for the Amazon option for the colorblock cardi. There are several colorways, but the one you see below is the closest to the one in the sale.
Click HERE for the Amazon option for the pinstripe button up. It’s 100% cotton, and I love how it’s styled on Amazon with the cardi, ankle jeans, and sneakers!
Click HERE for the Amazon option for the sweatshirt. The Amazon option is more of a tee, but I think it’s awesome. It has EXCELLENT reviews, it comes in several colors, and I ordered this dark grey one for myself. I got a medium so I knew it would be long enough for leggings.
I ADORE THESE HIGH WAISTED ANKLE LEGGINGS from Nordstrom. They come up above my belly button, and they suck me in like crazy, while somehow still allowing me to breathe and be 100% comfortable. THEY ARE MAGIC. Once I tried the high waisted option several years ago, I have never purchased the regular rise again.
Click HERE for the Amazon option of the endless hoops. Such a steal! I love that they are a lightweight, thin, gold huggie earring.
Click HERE for the Amazon option of the black sweater dress. And right now, there’s a coupon you can click that will save you 20% OFF!
Well, I thought that was fun! I’ll keep trying to find some more Amazon options before next week’s Amazon Haul!
TOP 5 READER AMAZON FAVORITES FROM JUNE
Y’all are always interested to know what the most popular items are for the month, so I’ve got June’s Top 5 Amazon favorites today. These aren’t necessarily MY favorites (although some do overlap), these are Y’ALLS favorites!
READER FAVORITE #1
Do you love the idea of a t-shirt dress, but prefer a short sleeve instead of a sleeveless cut? Well, here you go! This scoop neck t-shirt dress is going to be right up your alley! I’m wearing the “french red stripe”, but it comes in 8 total colors/patterns. Just like the tank dress, it’s incredibly soft and comfortable. For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
READER FAVORITE #2
I ordered these drawstring shorts on a whim, and I was totally surprised by them in the best way. I ordered both a small and a medium, and after the smalls arrived, I decided I liked the fit of both the smalls and the mediums. They are so comfy (not stiff at all), they’ve got pockets, and I think they are just a great casual look! And they’re not linen, but the totally look like linen WITHOUT the wrinkles that often come with linen. The smalls are a a bit more fitted, and the mediums are obviously a bit more relaxed.
And just fyi, this ENTIRE outfit is from Amazon and I highly recommend each and every piece.
READER FAVORITES #3 and #4
This work out top and these 7/8 leggings are both awesome. And the tee was the #3 reader favorite. I love how this top is loose fitting and love the length of it to wear with leggings. I’m wearing a medium. The leggings are the perfect length for me. I’m wearing the “wild ginger” but them come in 6 additional colors as well.
And the slip on sneakers were reader favorite #4, which is pretty impressive considering I’ve been talking about them for over a year now and y’all are still being persuaded to buy them. I actually have a theory that a majority of the sales now are for repeat slip on sneaker customers.
If you don’t have them yet, fix that RIGHT NOW!
READER #5 FAVORITE
This kimono is FANTASTIC. I’m wearing the “green”, but I think it’s more like a turquoise. It also comes in black, blue, and orange as well as a couple in a different pattern. I’m wearing it here with denim shorts, but it would also look great with white jeans and wedges!
When you see it closed like this, you see the kimono could also make a fabulous swimsuit cover up.
It’s been so much fun receiving all of the amazing feedback from y’all who ordered the wireless curler. So many of you can’t stop raving about how easy it is to use and how much you love your hair. I love that we found such a fun and useful tool!
Well, check this out. I went over to show my friend Keely how to use it on her daughter’s hair, they loved the curls, and they immediately purchased one. And then Keely sent me this pic to show sweet Grisham’s hair after she did it ON HER OWN! Well done, Grish! Grisham is 9, and she did this all by herself!
This actually gave me an idea. I would love for y’all to send me pics of your hair after you’ve styled it with this tool! I can do a round up and include them in an upcoming Amazon post.
And just in case you haven’t heard me talk about my experience with the wireless curler before, I’m going to give you a quick review.
LOOK AT MY HAIR, Y’ALL!
Okay, so it’s very easy to use. My hair has never once gotten tangled, it doesn’t take much time, and I absolutely love the curls it gives. You can change the temperature for your curl preference: use a higher temp for a tighter curl and a lower temp for a more relaxed curl. You also change the rotation of the curl depending on what side of your head you are working on. You want the curl to go away from your face.
You charge it with a USB cable, so it’s cordless when you are using it. I was running behind the other night when heading to dinner, so I threw it in the car and curled my hair on the way to dinner. Now that I’ve used it a lot, my only complaint is that I wished it would hold a longer charge.
PRO TIP: With repeated use, I have found that I get the best results when I curl on 180 degrees, and I only hold the curl a couple of seconds before releasing it. I absolutely love this little device.
And last but not least…
There’s a sale at Amazon on beauty tools that ENDS TODAY. We’re talking up to 30% OFF of some pretty amazing tools! And check out all of the 5 STAR reviews on the tools that are included!! There’s only 2 pages of items, so hop over to check out the inventory!
I posted this same collage on facebook over the weekend and I had a couple of people comment telling me they own the hairdyrer on the upper left and LOVE IT.
I also had a reader saying that she LOVES the Foreo LUNA (pink thing bottom right) and it’s 40% OFF today! Here is what Alison had to say about it: Full confession… I now have THREE of them… one on the bathroom counter, one in the shower, and one in my travel bag. They are completely worth the price, imho. I use it with the Colleen Rothschild cleansing balm and only need a thumbnail size bit to clean my entire face! I’ve used mine every day (am and pm) with good cleaning products since 2015 and my skin has been in the best condition ever.
AND GET THIS! The super popular T3 curling iron is 30% OFF, saving you $97.50! WOW!
SALE ENDS TODAY, Y’ALL.
LAST 3 THINGS I’VE ORDERED ON AMAZON
1) This strapless maxi in all black. I own the red floral and love it, so the all black one seemed like a no brainer.
2) I’ve always been incredibly impressed with the Pavoi jewelry I’ve ordered from Amazon (these pave huggie earrings and this bezel set necklace are both 2 of my favorites), so when I saw this cross necklace I had to get it. It’s under $15 and so pretty!
3) I’ve been seeing this waffle knit pajama short set all over instagram, and I wanted to try it for myself. I was #influenced for sure.
I’ve got a couple of unopened Amazon boxes in my dining room right now, and I think at least some of the above is in those boxes!
That’s it for today, y’all! Now get out there and show Monday who is boss!
