Am I the only one who feels like 2020 was the year of Amazon? With not a lot of shopping to be had outside, there was nothing left to do but order stuff online from the comfort of your own home. I haven’t compared yet but I can almost guarantee that I spent twice as much on Amazon then I have at any other point in my life. Good for them they are making bank.
It got me thinking, I should really write a post about my absolute favorites of the year. I had a lot to choose from but these were the cream of the crop by far. Can I also say that 2-day free shipping with Prime was the cherry on top of that cream. You can get 30-days free of Prime right now by clicking this link here. So here we go, these are MY favorites:
Brilliant Smart Home Control // Beautify Footlocker Trunks // Billibobbi Artificial Flowers with Vase // Chicwish Women’s Turn Down Shawl // Audio-Technica Studio Monitor Headphones, White // simplehuman 58 Liter / 15.3 Gallon Dual Compartment Rectangular Hands-Free Kitchen Recycling Trash Can // Romanstii Women Fleece Pullover Sweatshirt // Modway Amour Faux Leather Button-Tufted Round Ottoman in White // Simply Shelf Essential Oil Storage Organizers – 3pc Expandable Set // Manfrotto Compact Action Aluminum 5-Section Tripod Kit
Brilliant Smart Home Control Although pricey, this 4-way switch was the best solution for my living room setup. It controls our canister lights, rope lights, fan, and light fan. It’s not only so stylish but functional in so many ways. It has a built-in camera so I can see who’s in my home. When my Ring Door Bell rings, it will show me the outside camera and since it’s right near my front door I can see who’s there before I open it. It has Alexa capabilities so I can tell it to play music on my Sonos speakers. It does have a speaker, but I don’t recommend it for music, it will get the job done in a pinch. All these and so many more cool features, I absolutely love, love this device.
Beautify Footlocker Trunks I was very iffy about these trunks. It had great reviews on Amazon but still, can they be that good? Yes, yes they can, I love these trunks. I store my computer and camera equipment in the smaller one and the larger one hold some books, photos, and cards I don’t want to lose. It’s not only super functional, it’s so so pretty. They make any space instantly look super glam. These would be great as a nightstand or in a college dorm where storage is a premium.
Billibobbi Artificial Flowers with Vase I was looking for the perfect flower piece to go with my brand new kitchen decor. I feel like I looked for hours until I found these. The reviews were very good and the photos posted all looked like they were out of a magazine. I went for it and so glad I did. These flowers will brighten up any space and look amazing on my kitchen counter top.
Chicwish Women’s Turn Down Shawl I was skeptical when I spotted this jacket on another influencer. She has the perfect figure as most of them do and thought there was no way this would look good on my short, hourglass figure. I’m happy to report I was wrong about that. After looking at the review and attached photos, this jacket looks great on all body shapes and sizes. It also comes in a bunch of colors and patters so you can find your perfect match. This jacket gets a gold star.
Audio-Technica Studio Monitor Headphones You may no be aware but I’m very much into music and I sing in my church band. I have many headphones but wanted something more professional for home voice recording and for possibly podcasting (more on that later…maybe). After reading many reviews and doing so much research I found these from Audio Techinca. Yes they are amazing headphone monitors but I didn’t realize how much I would use them in my regular consumption of entertainment. These sound soooo good you guys. It hard going to back to Beats or in ear headphones after listen to music with these.
Simplehuman Recycling Trash Can Before you tell me in the comments how unnecessary and ridiculous this trash can is, hear me out for a second. It’s had a automatic trash can now for years and years and I could never go back. When we moved to our new home this past July, I wanted something new. Not only did I want new but I wanted something that had a recycling section attached. In in my old home I didn’t have a place to put can and cardboard boxes so they would sit on a counter off to the side. I didn’t want that to happen again. I found this little gem and thought the voice command would just be a waste but let me tell you I use it more than the motion control. This sits on the left side next to my sink so instead of having to get in from of it I can just say, “Open Can” and like magic it opens. I’m very glad I bought this and could never go back to just a “trash can”.
Romanstii Women Fleece Pullover Sweatshirt I love, love, love this fleece. Florida weather never gets super cold so this is perfect for those days you need a little something. I just love the color and design, it just says comfy style to me.
Modway Amour Faux Leather Button-Tufted Round Ottoman We needed something in our very large master bathroom. Our walk in closets are a good size but not big enough to have a seat in them. This fit the space perfect and now we have a place to sit when we get dressed and put our shoes on . You guys it took me weeks to find something I liked and I’m not disappointed. It’s held up with 2 toddlers jumping on it constantly so you know it’s good stuff.
Simply Shelf Essential Oil Storage Organizers If you are an oil enthusiast like me, you know those little oil bottles and be EVERYWHERE and because on their sides they roll, they will be a hot mess in your drawer and take up lots of space on your counters. Thank goodness I found these little organizers for my kitchen drawer. I can see everything I have no and it’s all in one place. 5 stars, no doubt.
Manfrotto Compact Action Aluminum Tripod Kit So I had the same tripod for the last 10 years and although it still functioned the say it should, that thing was extremely heavy and hard to work with. I need something lighter with a more fluid head for taking smooth video shots. This tripod and that and even more great features. The fact that the had can be put upside down for flat lay shots and pack up small to fit nicely on a table was everything i wished for. If you aren’t a content creature but still want something small and light, this tripod is perfect for you.
