These are the top sellers from Amazon from the things I shared in November. You can tell it’s cold outside now because black leggings were quite popular, as you can see! For previous months check out the blog posts linked below as well as my highlights on Instagram. The Amazon November highlight can be found here, which is where I saved everything I shared on Stories in November. And if you’re looking for curated lists on Amazon that I update frequently be sure to head to my Amazon shop!
Rigid Ornament and Christmas Decoration Storage Box I bought this box last year and it is a game changer when it comes to storing your Christmas decorations! I love it so much that I bought a second one this year for the things that didn’t fit into the first box. Currently $59.99 and worth every penny.
This $19.99 handheld blackhead removing pore vacuum can suck gunk out of your pores if you tend to get blackheads around your nose. Just be sure to steam your pores first (or take a long hot shower) so that they’re open and keep the vacuum moving so it doesn’t give you a hickie on your face. The gunk on the Q-tip below came out of my nose and cheeks. Pretty gross but also quite satisfying!
Juno Skin Clean 10 Cleansing Balm is a $19.99 cleansing balm that smells amazing and removes makeup incredibly well. I recently switched to a new mascara that is a bit tricky to remove, and I decided to gift this cleansing balm a shot and it works and there’s no need for a second step like makeup remover. The ingredients are quite clean too, and while it won’t replace my Beautycounter products it’s a great affordable alternative that really does work.
I bought a few of these $19.99 Velvet Travel Jewelry Boxes to give as Christmas gifts and they are so luxe looking. Great way to travel with your jewelry and also perfect as a gift. Also comes in dark green and pink.
These faux leather leggings are a top seller yet again, which doesn’t surprise me one bit. Only $29.99 and I prefer them over my much pricier Spanx faux leather leggings! I sized up 1 size.
These cane and rattan boxes with a hinged glass lid are some of my favorite things in our home. They come as a set of two and are perfect for corralling things. The square version and rectangular version are available now (I have both versions), but I have one of the rectangular ones on my bedside table to hold my vitamins, night creams, lip gloss, hair ties, face wipes, etc) and I just added a square one to Tom’s bedside table. I use one to hold sunglasses in our entryway, and one is used as decor on our bookshelf. They come as a set of 2 (one slightly larger than the other) and they are so pretty and practical too.
I’ve had this delicate brown faux leather Apple watch band for about 3 years now and it’s still a favorite of mine. Can’t beat the $11.99 price tag and it really has held up very well.
If you want to step up your Apple Watch band game even more, get this tortoise shell one! $22.99 and it looks cute with normal and dressy clothes and it’s durable enough (because it’s resin) to exercise in! I haven’t taken this band off since I bought it a couple months ago. The neatest part is a bumper type shell that the watch fits into to totally transform the look of your watch. I’m obsessed with this band!
Fleece lined leggings are a must have in the winter if you live in a cold climate. I bought these high rise Baleaf fleece lined leggings in October 2020 and they were my go-to when we got snow last winter. I sized up 1 size to a medium and got the version with pockets. I know I’ll have to break them out again soon now that it’s almost dreary January. They’re so comfy and warm!
My new clothing obsession is this sweater tunic! It’s oversized yet chic and is so comfortable, and it looks quite similar to the Free People version that costs a whole lot more. Size down one size, I wear the XS and now have the black, gray and khaki colored sweaters.
I wore this $38.99 dress for our family photos this fall and it was perfect! The smocked top is nice and comfy and it comes in a number of beautiful colors and prints. It runs true to size, I wear my normal size small.
I try to not allow too much screen time but it’s really handy to have these Amazon Fire tablets for the kids, especially when you’re traveling or when you’re stuck waiting somewhere. They play games, read books and watch tv shows and movies on them and I like that it syncs easily to our Amazon Prime account.
These pillows are a top seller yet again! They’re incredibly comfortable and since switching over to them I’ve been sleeping better than I have in a long time. The same can be said for Tom! I’m very picky about pillows and hate when they’re too fluffy or too flat, and these are a perfect middle ground. We’ve switched 4 of our pillows in the house over to these and plan to replace the rest soon. $39.99 for a pack of 2.
I finally decided to give the Colorfulkoala joggers a try, and these are so comfortable! They’re the same brand as my beloved Amazon leggings and I’d say they run true to size, though if you want the more traditional looser jogger fit you can size up a size. The waistband is nice and smooth and they’re $34.99.
The high-rise leggings I’ve loved for years and years are still a top seller and they remain one of the most worn items in my wardrobe. I have them in so many different colors but black is my most worn. They run small so I size up 1 size to a medium. If you’re pregnant I’d go up 2 sizes from your normal size. They’re fantastic for the postpartum phase too because the waistband is smooth and forgiving. They have side pockets on the legs that I throw a phone in when I’m wandering around with the kids and I even keep my phone there when I run and it doesn’t bounce at all. Can’t recommend them enough! I share a lot more about my love for them (as well as photos of me wearing them while pregnant and postpartum) in this blog post.
Never thought I’d be a person that would wear bike shorts, but I quickly changed my tune this past summer when I tried these high waisted bike shorts! These are exactly like the leggings above but a shorts version. Same sizing guidance as leggings too, I go up 1 size to a medium. I run in these, life weights in these, and wear them around the house. I also wear these under dresses! Heather Coffee is my favorite color under dresses because it’s closest to my skin tone but I wear black or heather gray for workouts. The pockets are so handy when I don’t carry a purse because I can put my phone in the leg pocket and you’d never even know it was there.
This set of 2 rattan wall shelves is great for corralling children’s books. I hung this set of 2 in Caroline’s room and they’re such a pretty and easy way to organize a little of the chaos. Currently $42.99 for the pair and they look quite high end.
Hanging artwork and photos on the wall is always one of the first things I do to make a house feel like a home. As a military family we’ve lived in more rentals than I can count, and this picture hanging tool is what ensures our art and family photos are hung where they need to be without 5 extra holes in the wall behind the photo. It allows you to mark the wall exactly where the nail needs to go and it makes sure the frame will be level too. I can’t hang anything without this tool! I promise it’ll be the best $10 you’ve ever spent for your home and sanity.
I haven’t personally tried this athletic turtleneck but I’ve heard from followers that it’s a great one! I have an old lululemon one so I’m all set in this department, but if you’re looking for a running turtleneck that doesn’t break the bank (only $20) I’d give this one a shot.
I used this wire edged striped ribbon on our Christmas tree this year and it’s even prettier in person! $11.99 for a roll and it comes in a few different color options as well.
