June 10, 2022

By:

Team LIY

Amazon is bringing the heat this summer! We take our job of bringing you the best Amazon items very seriously, and that’s just what we’re doing right now. We’ve sifted through the not-so-great and are sharing what to buy on Amazon right now!

And get this – we had so many Amazon finds we loved this month that we had to split it up into two posts! See the rest of the items we found and are loving over here!

And if you want even more Amazon in your life, join the 200,000+ members in our exclusive Amazon Facebook Group!

Erin’s Amazon Favorites

Puff Shoulder Tee

Tee [true to size, wearing in small in hot pink] // Shorts [true to size, wearing in 27] //  Sandals [size up .5]

This tee has been taking the internet by storm and now I understand why! It’s soft, it’s fun, and it has the cutest little puff sleeve to give it an extra flair! This is also great if you’re on the taller side as it does run long!

Hannah’s Amazon Favorites

Active Skin Repair

Active Skin Repair

My kids HATE when I clean their owies with any type of medicine. Hydrogen Peroxide, Neosporin, etc… you name it they freak out [except for band aids, we go through those things like water haha]. So when I saw the reviews on this skin repair product I figured it was worth trying! It has the benefits to help your skin repair after scrapes, cuts and bites but it doesn’t sting and is easy to apply! My kids have even let me use it without complaint! Just a spray or two on the spot and let it work its magic!

Planter Pots

Planter Pots

I’m the worst when it comes to decorating outdoors… I’m either super picky about what I want, lazy about actually doing it and since our outside is still quite a bit dated [we bought an older ‘70’s tri level] it’s difficult to decorate. This set of planters was not only affordable but made it easy to quickly decorate our front porch without doing too much! They are three different sizes, have drain holes in the bottom and look way more expensive in real life! They’re also lightweight! I love how they’ve spruced up our front porch!!

Wowmazing Bubble Kit

Wowmazing Bubble Kit

It wouldn’t be Summer without bubbles!! We’ve had this kit since 2020 and right after Covid hit and let me tell you these have been one of the most fun outdoor activities we have! They make the BIGGEST bubbles we have ever seen and the laughs/giggles that come with these are the best!

Claire’s Amazon Favorites

Skort

Skort [TTS] // Cropped Tank (with built-in bra!) // Sneakers 

Skort season is here, ladies! I ordered this one last summer and have been wearing it on repeat this season. It’s so comfortable for travel or running errands and has held up great in the wash!

Lauren’s Amazon Favorites

Golf Polo 2-Pack

Golf Polo 2-Pack [size up if in between, wearing in large] // Skort [true to size]

Another great golf option from Amazon! This top comes in a 2-pack [this specific one came with pink and white, but there are several], and I love the shoulder cut-outs! It’s nice and lightweight and has a slim athletic fit to it! Perfect for a day on the links!

Raised Garden

Raised Garden

I’m giving a garden a go this year in a very small way! This raised garden was exactly what I was looking for as I know I’m going to need to move my garden location in a year or two. Peppers, tomatoes, jalapeños, and zucchini are just a few of the plant I’m hoping to grow this year! It was assembled in less than an hour and so far the plants to be grow, grow, growing! 

Outdoor Pillow Covers // Outdoor Pillow Inserts

Outdoor Pillow Covers // Outdoor Pillow Inserts

These outdoor pillows and pillow covers arrived from Amazon, and as soon as I took them out of the package I was so pleased with the quality! I love the textured look and feel, the color, and the price! The trifecta! 

Floral Top

Floral Top [true to size, wearing in 3Floral Red] 

I had seen Erin wearing the long sleeve version of this top and wanted to try the short sleeve version [both available in tons of pretty colors and prints] and OH MY I get the hype now! I love it so so much! It doesn’t wrinkle, has a nice flowy feel, is the prettiest pink, and great with white denim in the spring and summer!

Katy’s Amazon Favorites

Oxo Sponge Holder

Oxo Sponge Holder

A sponge holder may not be something you think you NEED but honestly it’s one of my go-to items to tell couples to put on their registry. There’s nothing worse than a soggy sponge collecting bacteria just chilling on your kitchen counter. When we moved into our house last fall, the sponge holder we had somehow got lost or thrown out – so I finally got around to getting another one and am so happy with it! 

White Sneakers

White Sneakers [size down .5] // Similar Top // Skirt [size down if in between]

If I could have one pair of shoes to go with everything, it would be white sneakers. From jeans, to casual dresses to skirts, to shorts I seriously pair them with everything! They do wear out and get dirty as much as I wear them, but at this price I can wear them worry free as much as I want all Summer!

Solar Outdoor Lights

Solar Outdoor Lights // Clip Hooks

My poor husband put up with me wanting these lights moved around SO many times to get them where I wanted them 😂 bless his soul. I have dreamed of the Pinterest worthy patio for so long and while we may not be 100% be there, I think these lights add a nice vibe! Side note: I ordered the 27’ and definitely needed the 48’ OOPS. What has held me back from lights before is that we don’t have an outlet in a convenient spot on our patio, so these solar lights are perfect and keep me outlet/extension cord free! 

Macy’s Amazon Favorites

Kids Black Sandals

Kids Black Sandals

These cute little sandals are perfect for my 2 year old. Super easy to slip on and off and easy to clean too. I think I’m going to order myself a pair!

Massage Gun

Massage Gun

It always seems like my husband always has some sort of back pain going on (hello 30’s). With fathers day coming up I thought this would be the perfect gift for him. Plus I can benefit from it too sometimes 🙂 

Steph’s Amazon Finds

Eyeshadow and Press on Nails

Eyeshadow [Putty and Smoky Amethyst] and Press on Nails [Pretty Pink]

After hearing the girls on the team rave about these eyeshadow sticks – I had to try them for myself! I love how quickly I can finish my eye makeup, and they dry perfectly (without being sticky!).

Speaking of quick beauty secrets – these Press on Nails take me about 10 minutes to apply and last a full week for a cost effective and easy home manicure.

LIY Ambassador’s Amazon Favorites

Allison’s Kimono

Kimono

I love a nice silk robe, and this one from Amazon, is super soft, and not too hot to wear while getting ready after a  shower. There’s an inner tie, so no worries about it slipping open while blow drying your hair! The fun kimono look is super cute, and the length hits me just right on my 6 foot frame!

Allison’s BOGG Bag

BOGG Bag  // Sandals

I had been looking for a bag to carry on the boat, I came across the Bogg Bag, and decided to give it a try! It is large enough to carry all our items, and it has holes on the sides just in case any water gets in it. The only downfall I’ve noticed is that it’s pretty heavy to carry down and from the lake!

Heather’s Maxi Dress

Maxi Dress [true to size, wearing Small] // Sandals [true to size]

If you’re looking for a new dress this is it! Heather here to share my latest Amazon find. I ran across this dress while shopping for an upcoming weekend getaway to Saugatuck and it’s perfect! The fit is great, the straps are adjustable and the length works on my 6′ frame. The hardest decision was picking only 1 of the 14 colors!

Lisa’s Cocktail Dress

Cocktail Dress [size up if in between] // Heels [true to size]

Lisa here with a dress that was derby ready, graduation ready, garden party ready, Spring wedding season ready – practically any semi-formal event that calls for a dressy dress attire. This dress is so pretty! There are loads of colors in it that allow for so many shoe options. The dress isn’t stiff and has a wonderful stretch to it. While I would say it is TTS – I may should have sized up as it rides a bit up when walking. Comfy with a capital ‘C’ 

Lisa’s Dress

Dress [true to size] // Similar Heels

You might remember last summer a certain dress that took the LIY community by storm and a lot of you loved it so much! Well, I think I have found this summer‘s new design with the perfect pops of color. When this dress went on sale I was able to scoop up this pattern and color last month. Dress is light and airy and true to size. I’m wearing a medium. I love it just as much as the other pattern and combo one from last summer.

Skye’s Crop Top

Crop Top [size up] // Shorts [size down] // Sandals

The weather is crazy – while I watched it snow in Colorado recently, it was in the triple digits here in Texas! The AC is out in my car (don’t worry I’m getting it fixed this week 🙌) so I’ve been wearing “car clothes” and changing when I get to work lol! This has been my go to car outfit for the last week or so! I’m not usually a fan of a crop top, but these are actually very comfortable and cool and I might keep them around for working out too!They run very small, so definitely size up! I am wearing them in the XL and they are a little snug! Shorts run large – I would size down in them if you are in between, wearing in a Large!

Skye’s Snack Tray

Snack Tray

Trying to get my family to eat fruit is a struggle. Anyone else? So when I discovered these divided trays I had to give them a try and while we are not a 100% success story *yet*, we are getting there! Having it already cut up and ready to eat has been a big help! It comes in a pack of two, so I keep one in our fridge at home and just set it out with every meal and took the other to work with me to have fruit to snack on there as well. So far, I’m loving them!
