What The LIY Team is Loving on Amazon // July Edition

June 28, 2019


Erin Schrader

Erin’s Romper

Where’s all of my romper fans at? This under $30 option does not disappoint in the slightest. I have loved Daily Ritual brand at Amazon ever since I tried my first tee and realized the power of their soft, comfortable, quality material. This romper is so comfy, not sheer, and I love that you can throw it on with sandals, tennis shoes, wedges, a denim jacket, over a swimsuit and the list goes on. Highly recommend! TTS- wearing small!

Cassidy’s Belt

If you love belting skirts and dresses in the summer, this belt is for you! Not only do I love the boho/western vibe of it, but you just can’t beat that price [um hello, $12.99]! It is faux leather with a double buckle [functional on both sides] which makes it super easy to adjust! I typically wear XS/S and ordered the S/M so size up if in between!

Hannah’s Dress & Shoes

This is my FIRST Amazon dress and I’m impressed!! It not only has adjustable straps, an adjustable tie waist and quality fabric but it also has POCKETS!! At 5’2″ and pear shaped, I tend to find most dresses unflattering on me [personally]! However I love that this dress has so many elements that highlight the areas of my body that I like cover the ones I don’t!

These shoes are SO cute!! I love a statement shoe and these cuties are a classic with a twist! The tortoiseshell buckle and wood block heel details are perfect and they are so comfortable on!! I wore them to dinner and received so many compliments on them!

Becca’s Rug

Of all the pieces I bought for my daughter’s nursery, this rug is my favorite! It is beautiful and sophisticated — it’s the eye-catching piece of the room! This rug is the gorgeous look of a vintage rug at a bargain price – we’re talking under $100! It definitely on the thinner side, but as long as you aren’t looking for a cushy deep rug, I would strongly recommend! My rug is 5’x8′ in Ivory!

Steph’s Collagen Peptides

A few months ago, I finally gave in to the collagen trend I kept hearing so much about. I bought a small container, drank it in my coffee daily for about a month and received so many compliments on my skin! Fast forward to a few weeks after my supply ran out – I started noticing breakage on my nails and hair and that my skin felt less clear, like I needed to be sure to apply foundation daily (which isn’t my norm in the Summer). I couldn’t figure out what was going on until the other day when I realized I had stopped taking the collagen. This time I ordered the larger size and I’m excited to see my hair, skin and nails bounce back! I simply put 1 scoop in my coffee cup, brew my coffee into the mug and stir just a bit – it mixes in so easily!

Lauren’s Jumpsuit

I have such a love hate relationship with jumpsuits. I love the way they look, but have such a hard time finding some that flatter my 5’6″ 150ish figure! Until this little lady came along! As soon as I put it on I knew it was a winner, and I actually put it on a few days in a row JUST to make sure my eyes weren’t playing tricks on me. Sure enough, a few days later, still a winner! I’m typically a medium and sized up to a large and it’s great! [One note: it says to hand wash cold and lay flat to dry– according to reviews this is an absolute MUST follow or it will basically disappear].

Claire’s Purse Organizer

I recently purchased my first designer handbag [eek YAY!] and wanted something to keep it organized as well as protected. I ordered this purse organizer insert available in five sizes with THIRTEEN pockets. Game changer, life saver. For reference, I have the Louis Vuitton Neverfull GM and the Xtra Large size insert fits perfectly. It easily fits 13-in laptop, planner, chargers and everything in between! Another day, another Amazon win.

Erin’s Tweezers

Oh chin hairs, how I loathe thee. 30 hit and then BAM, every hair on my body [specifically my face] hit as well. I spotted these “world’s best” tweezers and knew I had to give them a try. Needless to say, they are now riding shotgun in my car’s center console and helping me become the hairless woman I’m striving to be. If you need to get your pluck on, these babies are here to help.

Hannah’s Purse

WHOA this Chloé look alike is good!! I ordered this one to try and it far surpassed any expectations I had! The material and hardware quality are so good!! It has three interior pockets, roomy enough for my essentials, and the perfect crossbody length!! It could definitely pass as the real thing!

Cassidy’s Silicone Pasties

Okay ladies, let’s talk about these self adhesive silicone pasties. They come with three different versions, simple nipple cover pasties, and two breast lift pasties. I tried all three and even reused a pair to see how the adhesiveness held up, and I was pretty impressed! As for the lift, well you can see for yourself! I loved this dress, but didn’t have the correct bra to wear with it, so I tried these and it completely changed the dress for me! I would totally recommend these pasties!

Becca’s Kettle

This electric kettle has totally won me over! It boils water super quickly, and turns off automatically so I can walk away without worry – yay for multitasking! It’s also “cordless” meaning the kettle detaches from the plate which is plugged in, which is a super nice feature! I originally bought it just to boil water for the formula I needed for the day, but have also ended up using it for pour over coffee in the morning and chamomile tea at night! Talk about return on investment — I probably reach for this thing close to ten times a day! I would give it a two thumbs up, especially for the tea drinkers or mamas out there — and I think it would make a great grad gift too for making hot drinks or bowls of ramen in the dorm!

Lauren’s Travel Accessories

Traveling is sort of like working out in my mind- when your gear looks good, things go a lot smoother [mentally or physically]. I’ve wanted to get a cute passport holder and some new luggage tags for some time now, and finally pulled the trigger [I’m that girl scrambling at the airport to put on a tag in line]. I’ve got a girls trip coming up and figured there’s no better time to make it happen than now, especially with these cute luggage tags! They’re perfect for yourself or a gift for your girlfriends!

Claire’s Makeup Brush Cleaner

Hi, my name is Claire and I’ve never washed my makeup brushes. Yep, you read that right. Did you know it’s recommended to wash them weekly? OOPS. I decided it was finally time to bite the bullet, so I ordered this [under $10] cleaning mat. Warm water plus a few drop of dish soap and I was a new woman. Gently scrub your wet brushes on the mat until clean! Cheers to NOT buying unnecessary new makeup brushes. Bonus: my skin is thanking me as well as my wallet!

Erin’s Waffle Knit Shirt

Long live the waffle knit. I know summer has technically just begun, but slipping into this tie-front top made me crave fall in 3 seconds flat. I love that this is lightweight enough to wear in the summer with shorts but can transition well to bootie season! It’s super comfortable and just an easy and effortless top that makes you look like you know what you’re doing with yourself [spoiler alert: I don’t]. TTS- wearing small!

Lauren’s Car Air Freshener

It seems like I’m always trying out different car air fresheners to give a nice light scent without being too overpowering to give me a headache [I’m a bit sensitive in that area]. One guarantee that never gives me a headache is essential oils, so when I started putting together my own scent combos for an air freshener for my car I was questioning why I hadn’t done this before! This comes with a two pack that clips right on your vent, and then several replacement tubes for once the scent is fading away. You just simply pull out the tube, put some drops on the soft material, insert it back inside the casing and voila!

Let’s just say, until we started working on this post, I had no idea that there were different pillows for different sleep positions. I figured it was a one-size fits all approach, maybe just a preference of firm or soft! Well, needless to say, I was way off. I also learned that over 70% of […]
