Our Latest Amazon Haul

March 21, 2022

By:

Team LIY

There’s no better place to get your home, wardrobe, and beauty drawer updated for Spring than Amazon. At least that’s what we tend to think. No matter what we’re shopping for, we tend to find ourselves hopping on Amazon as our first place to search, and this post probably proves that to you. A little bit of this, a little bit of that, we’re shopping it all on Prime!

Erin’s Amazon Finds

Crochet Swimsuit Coverup

Coverup [wearing in c-apricot] // Swimsuit [true to size, wearing in small] // Sandals [true to size]

With our recent trip to Las Vegas and spring break on the near horizon, I was looking for a swimsuit coverup that had a little spice to it. After I spotted this one from Summersalt that I was obsessed with [but didn’t want to pay the price for] I knew I had to find something similar but for less. Insert this under $30 option from Amazon! I am pleasantly surprised by it and know I’ll get a ton of use out of it this summer on the lake!

High-Low Maxi Dress

Maxi dress [true to size, wearing in small in print brown] // Belt [size up if in between] // Heels [true to size]

Give this girl a good maxi and she is set! This dress feels more expensive than its $30 price tag [I always appreciate a lined dress] and I love that it has adjustable straps! While I did feel like it had quite a bit of fabric which can look unshapely at times, with the quick fix of a belt I was golden! Throw a little denim jacket over it if you need for cooler nights and you’re set — it’s a win for me!

Romper

Romper [true to size, wearing in small] // Heels [true to size]

Another Vegas-inspired purchase, I knew I was going to want to have some cute, lightweight options to wear during the day with sandals to walk around town [or dress up with heels for dinner] so when I spotted this one I had to try it! It does have a button closure at the chest and a tie around the waist that you can remove if you want to! It’s easy and it’s chic, another Amazon fashion win for me!

Steph’s Amazon Finds

Press On Nails and Sunless Tanner

Kiss Impress [Midnight Drive] / Jergens Instant Sun [Light Sun]

It seems like all of my purchases recently are focused on getting me Spring Break ready and I don’t hate it! First up – one of my favorite things to come out of the pandemic, Kiss Impress Nails. They existed before, but I never used them until I wasn’t going to the nail salon regularly. They’re SO much cheaper than salon nails, and I like that I change them weekly because I would often get tired of the color I chose long before it worn off. Next up, saving my pasty legs one application at a time – Jergens Instant Sun. Easy to apply (be sure to use a mitt for easy and even application!), dries fast and gives me the best natural-looking color.

Body Board

Body Board

Speaking of getting ready for Spring Break – we’re driving, which means we have room to pack pretty much whatever we want. For this trip, that includes a body board for our family to use on the beach. My boys are so excited to try it out!

Cushionaire Sandals

Cushionaire Sandals [TTS – wearing in Wide]

Comfortable, simple to pair with many outfits and easy to slip on – these sandals are joining our trip as well! It can be tough to find slip on sandals that are comfortable because my feet are on the wider side – I love that these sandals had that option!

Hannah’s Amazon Finds

Chi Travel Steamer

Chi Travel Steamer

My husband and I are headed to Texas at the end of this week for a wedding and we desperately needed a steamer for my dress and his suit. I didn’t realize how difficult it would be to find a travel steamer that not only worked but traveled easily and wasn’t a pain to use! After ordering and trying this Chi steamer I was shocked at just how well it worked! It not only fits perfectly in my carry-on suitcase but actually works!! It has a case for it, 2 year warranty and exceeded my expectations! If you’re looking for a general steamer, highly recommend this one we’ve had for several years!

Marble Bathroom Scale

Marble Bathroom Scale

Who honestly wants to step on the scale lol I feel like ours constantly stares at me and sticks out like a sore thumb. So, when I saw this pretty marble option I figured I would be more inclined to step on the scale and less inclined to chuck it out the window lol Not only does it look nice but it also doesn’t stick out like a sore thumb and boy is it not too bad to look at!

Strappy Sports Bras

Strappy Sports Bras

Amazon has yet to steer me wrong with a sports bra, I’m obsessed with these, so when I saw this strappy option and it’s OVER 18,000 reviews I couldn’t hit #checkout fast enough! After wearing them through a variety of workouts I l-o-v-e them! The padding is a little much but I have a smaller chest and didn’t mind them too much! I will say they have good support, not great so for my small chest they worked for all of my workouts. If you need something with more support I would wear these for more of a lounge type bra because they are so comfortable!

Claire’s Amazon Finds

Wall Mounted Floating Racks with Stemware Hanger 

Wall Mounted Floating Racks with Stemware Hanger 

If you’ve ever lived in a small space, you know the struggle for storage space is real! We were running low on cabinet space for drinkware, so I found these mounted wall racks perfect for glassware! These would be great for a bar area or apartment living. I love that they have the hanger for stemware – which is completely optional, you could leave it off and use them for decor instead! They were easy to install and overall, a great [and stylish!] space saver! Only $30 for a set of two and available in two color options. Cheers! 

Scalloped Swimsuit

One Piece Swimsuit [size up one, wearing large] // Sandals [size up .5 if in between] // Sarong [set of two] // Button Down Cover-Up [TTS, fits oversized wearing medium]

Oh hey, vacay! Outfit brought to you by Amazon, from head to toe. Spring Break or Summer Vacation – the season calls for new suits, am I right?! I love the scalloped details on this one! I did size up to a large [typically a medium 6/8]. I also found two cover-up options, both from Amazon! PS. the sarong wrap comes in a set of two and is available in all sorts of color combinations. 

Jacket

Similar Jacket [I own this style in another color and LOVE! TTS] // Cropped Cami [with built-in bra!] // Joggers [TTS, comparable to Lulu Align Jogger!] // Sneakers [TTS]

The perfect look for travel or running errands! These joggers are SO soft and totally comparable to Lulu’s Align joggers + the cami has a built-on bra! *Chef’s Kiss* Everything linked fits true to size! 

Lauren’s Amazon Finds

Le Specs Half Moon Magic

Le Specs Half Moon Magic

I’d been wanting to try these Le Specs sunglasses for a long time and recently decided it was time to bring them home to mama. After wearing them for the past few weeks, it’s official, I’m sold. I love the shape, the fit, the actual sun-blocking, and the quick Prime shipping 😉   

Athletic Jacket

Athletic Jacket [size up if in between, wearing a large but probably could have done medium!]

As soon as I put this jacket on well, it didn’t come off. I proceeded to wear it the rest of the day! It’s super comfortable, and the perfect layering piece for the gym, a hike, or even a run to Target [because we all know we’re going there in our leggings!]. It’s a great material and has a ton of stretch to it! It feels like something you’d find at Athleta or Lululemon!

Sunday Riley C.E.O. Glow Serum

Sunday Riley C.E.O. Glow Serum

Fight signs of aging? Brightens and leaves skin glowing? Nearly perfect reviews? Yes, yes, and yes! I’ve been using this CEO Glow Serum for a few weeks now, morning and night, and truly feel like it does leave my skin glowing [as in, I don’t want to put makeup on!]. 

Melamine Serving Trays 

Melamine Serving Trays 

Every time we’re hosting and I need a tray to set things on or we’re heading outdoors to make s’mores by the campfire, I find myself saying “crap, I really need to get a tray for this!” Well, Amazon to the rescue! I love melamine materials right now, as we have two little ones and we spend a ton of  time outdoors, and these serving trays are just that, but a perfect simple white material that will last through whatever home trends come and go!

Echo Show 8

Echo Show 8

Most used item in my kitchen? Honestly, it might be the Echo Show 8! Asking it to set a timer, asking the temp, playing music, watching the pictures slide through, finding recipe ideas, checking the Ring doorbell, and more, I’m constantly discovering more things to do with it!

Studded Heels

The Drop Women’s Avery Square Toe Two Strap High Heeled Sandal

I put these heels on and instantly fell in love and proceeded to tell my husband he needed to take me on a date somewhere [still waiting on that last part to happen.. ha!]. They’re comfy, cute, and priced right! I love the studded details and the perfect height. They’re a great heel to wear all summer with dresses or white jeans! Plus, they’re available in a TON of colors, with and without the studs!

Makeup Case

Skincare Makeup Case

I’ve been wanting a small container to keep my skincare regimen in [which hi, when did I get old enough to have a skincare regimen?]. I loved the look of the clear and leather bags but not always the prices, until I found this one on Amazon!

Katy’s Amazon Finds

Lip Scrub

Lip Scrub [coconut sorbet]

I’m at the point in my life where lip lines are settling in and I’m trying to find ways to fix it 😂 So far, I think this lip scrub is a good start to get rid of dead skin and exfoliate but I think I may need to try Erin’s lip sleep mask as well. Any tips are appreciated!! Cheers to the journey haha!

Spring Wreath

Spring Wreath

Spring is my favorite season and this wreath makes me feel so happy and ready for the season!! I feel like it is a clean and classy “welcome Spring and Summer” to my front door!

Dish Drying Mat

Dish Drying Mat [Black, 12”x16”]

After just having a dish towel beside the sink for random dishes to dry, it was time to invest in a new drying mat 😂The silicone material of this is so easy to clean and I think it makes it more sanitary than others I have had in the past that were more of a fabric. You can also use this under pet bowls, as a shoe mat, or fridge liner! So many possibilities!

Leggings

Colorfulkoala Leggings [size down if in between] // Top [true to size] // Sneakers [true to size] 

The moment I put these leggings on I texted my best friends and my Mom the link telling them they need to buy them. I have heard great things about these from other girls on the LIY Team and just on the internet in general, but after finally trying them I can vouch they are SO GOOD! Under $25 but feel like very high end. These are my new favs! 

Macy’s Amazon Finds

Evenflo Convertible Car Seat

Evenflo Convertible Car Seat

We’ve been on the hunt for a new car seat for months. My son is turning two soon and we were in need of an upgrade. So far we are really loving this Evenflo Convertible car seat! My son even fell asleep on our 20 minute drive (which he never does) the first time he rode in it. I’d say he is a fan as well! There are 4 modes with this seat, rear facing for children 4-40 lbs, forward facing for children 22-65 lbs, high back booster for children 40-120 lbs and no back booster for children 40-120 lbs. I love that this seat grows with him so we hopefully won’t have to buy another car seat now.

LIY Ambassador Amazon Finds

Allison’s Sticky Bra

Sticky Bra

Allison here! I have been looking for a stickable bra that gives enough cover for my larger chest (36G), and enough support to feel comfortable wearing with bathing suits, backless dresses, or just anytime a regular bra won’t work, and these checked all those boxes for me, and they are REUSABLE, which is a huge plus!

Allison’s High Impact Bra

High Impact Bra

Allison here! Calling all larger chested ladies! This underwire, high impact sports bra has been a game changer for me! I am a 34G, and this is the first bra that I have tried in a long while, that I can jump rope in! It is beyond supportive, and doesn’t give you a “uniboob”. The straps can be worn as a racerback, or regular, and for $25, I will be ordering one in every color available!

Skye’s Dress

Dress [size up]

How would you accessorize this simple dress?? Hey LIY Fam! Skye here! I need some help with what to add to this dress! It is so comfortable, honestly like wearing pajamas, but it definitely needs a little something extra don’t you think? What would you add to it?

I sized up for a little more room in the chest so I am wearing an XL here. If you are busty or in between sizes, I would recommend sizing up!

Skye’s Pill Organizer

Pill Organizer

Signs you are hard core adulting: getting giddy about a pill organizer!

Hey LIY Fam! Skye here! If I have to take my supplements and vitamins every day, might as well make it fun right? This colorful pill organizer seriously makes me happy and also helps me remember to take my vitamins because it is so bright, you can’t miss it. Love it

Skye’s Workout Gear

Sports Bra [I went by the size chart and ordered the 2XL but I think the XL would be better] // Tank [scroll down for tank options, wearing in an XL] // Leggings [TTS, wearing in a L and 20% off] // Tennis Shoes [size up .5]

When it comes to workout gear, the simpler and blacker the better if you ask me! Skye here and Honey, my sweet Aussie)! I read the great reviews on these sports bras & tops from Amazon and had to give them a try! The sports bra is pretty good support (I’m a 36G for reference) – I would feel comfortable doing most things in it but maybe not a HIIT workout. However, paired with the cropped tank top the ladies aren’t going anywhere and it is pretty comfortable!

Skye’s Eyebrow Kit

Eyebrow Tint Kit [using Medium Brown shade]

It’s amazing the difference eyebrows make, right??

I’ve been using this kit for years to dye my eyebrows at home! It is really easy and fast and makes such a huge difference in my face (not to mention it obviously makes me MUCH happier lol!). I cannot recommend doing this at home enough!
