A few of my favorite things
If there’s one thing we all love, especially in 2022, it’s convenience. Having home products, fashion accessories, food—literally anything—delivered right to my front door is just so lovely. Honestly, what did we do before Amazon? It really changed the game for how we organize and run our lives.
I should know. For the past 12 years, I’ve shared my favorite affordable finds in the fashion, beauty, and lifestyle categories with followers of my blog, Poor Little It Girl. And I’ve relied on the Amazon app and website to do it. So I can confidently share that I’ve discovered some amazing products that I love and use in my daily life.
But I can’t keep the goods to myself! So let’s dive in to my list of the top must-buy products on Amazon. Then check out my blog and follow me on Instagram for loads of under-$100 finds and cute dog pictures.
Kuissential Electric Milk Frother
I love—and I mean love—a cup of coffee. If I’m being honest, I enjoy a few cups throughout the day. But like most, I can’t afford that fancy coffee shop latte multiple times a day, several times a week. So when I want that cup of coffee to feel extra fancy, I whip out this electric frother to foam up my creamer. It makes my boring at-home cup of Joe taste as if I picked it up at the corner coffee shop!
Linenspa Memory Foam Mattress Topper
In addition to being a blogger, I’m the reigning queen of naps. There is nothing I love more on this earth than curling up in my bed for a little snooze. When you work from home and have a toddler, those midday siestas are essential. This memory foam mattress topper makes me feel like I’m sleeping on a cloud and takes our otherwise not-so-great mattress to the next level of comfort. (P.S. Here are Reader’s Digest‘s recommendations for the best mattresses when you’re ready to upgrade.)
Zyllion Shiatsu Back and Neck Massager
The ultimate form of relaxation is a great massage, right? That’s why this back massager is by far my most used Amazon purchase of all time. I keep it right by my sofa, so when I wind down at the end of the day with some TV and a glass of red wine, I can indulge in a little back and neck massage right from my couch. I love it so much that I even wrote an entire blog post dedicated to this massager. You do not want to miss it!
Sooyee Earring Holder
I’m not one for necklaces or bracelets, but I do love a great earring—so much so that my collection is quite … large. This acrylic earring holder has been a game-changer for my favorite accessory. It can hold up to 128 pairs of earrings and is pretty enough to leave out on display. I also have a blog post dedicated to this amazing Amazon find, which you can check out here!
Miessial Ruffle Midi Dress
Once the spring sunshine comes out, you can find me living in sundresses. And this striped, smocked dress is my absolute favorite. It has ruffle sleeves, a pretty blue shade, and yes, even pockets! Does the perfect dress for spring exist? Yes—and it’s under $40 on Amazon.
Zorfin Fanny Pack
As a mom to a busy toddler, being hands-free when we head out is essential. I love that fanny packs are back in style because they’re so convenient and easy. Throw it across your chest or wear it around your waist, whichever you prefer. I love that this fanny pack provides tons of storage and is waterproof and durable.
Leachco Snoogle Body Pillow
When I was pregnant with my son, I had a hard time getting comfortable when I slept. That is, until I purchased this body pillow. Y’all, it’s a game-changer for all the moms-to-be out there. It supports your hips, back, neck, and tummy. Honestly, I love it so much, I still sometimes sleep with it, even though I’m not expecting. It’s just that cozy!
Health and Yoga Tongue Scraper
No, it’s not the sexiest product on my list. But if you haven’t tried a tongue scraper yet, consider this your sign to start. We all want fresh breath and a clean mouth, and using this tongue scraper is so satisfying. It’s easy and safe to use too!
Samsung 50-Inch Frame TV
This is certainly a splurge item, but if you can snag the Frame TV, get on it! We haven’t had a TV in our bedroom for years, and I finally caved. We bought a Frame TV, and my life has never been better. Is there anything more relaxing than snuggling in bed and watching bad TV or a good movie? The best part is that when it’s not on, you can set it to showcase pretty artwork.
Munchkin Faucet Extender Set
Toddler moms, this one is for you. My son is really into washing his own hands and brushing his own teeth, but we struggled because the bathroom faucet was too far away from his short little arms. I saw that his preschool uses these little faucet extenders, and they are genius! We’re teaching him how to do things for himself without making a big mess. A total parent win!
