I’m not sure whether to be proud or embarrassed about this
number, but in 2021 I placed 68 orders on Amazon
(which is 19 more than I did in 2020) for a grand total of 191 items.
Dear. God. Okay…maybe ashamed is the word I was really looking
for. Jassy I expect to be seeing some special perks coming my
way because clearly I am quite set on keeping Amazon in business
and making sure you have money to blow. Lol I wish I could say that
most of it was stuff I needed, buuut as it tends to go with Amazon
I rarely get anything I actually need. I.hope you enjoy reading about my 21 favorite Amazon purchases from 2021!
OXO Cereal Containers
Last year I did a complete pantry makeover to save my sanity
because I could not find anything with how it was and splurged
on these clear cereal containers from OXO. OXO will always
remain in my mind as the top brand for organizing containers
that seal well, are practical, and look aesthetically
pleasing (not sponsored Lol). I have been really happy with
them since my purchase and would buy them again in a
heartbeat! (You can read about my pantry organization
and see the before and after here!)
In the summertime I love running around barefoot, or as
close to barefoot as I can get with sandals and flip flops.
I have always loved the look of Birkenstock sandals, but
have never been able to convince myself to spend the money
so when I came across these Cushionaire sandals I thought
they were too perfect to pass up! I bought them in this pretty
rose gold color and legit wore them almost every
single day last summer. Love them!
SweatyRocks Satin PJ Set
This was totally not a planned purchase. I just woke up one
morning and decided that my old tshirts and sweatpants
weren’t cutting it anymore and I needed some big girl PJs.
Of course social media knew this before I even did and
started sending me ads for PJ sets everywhere. I ended
up going with this satin set and I love it. It is very
comfortable to sleep in and it looks great!
Fittin Sports Bra
I have said it before and I will say it again: this is one of the
best sports bras I have ever worn. Coming in at under $20
makes this an unbelievable steal. It isn’t too tight, but yet
still provides the perfect amount of support and the straps
don’t dig into my shoulders. I love it.
Everyone and their dog jumped on the claw clip trend
of 2021 and I too bought a ticket for that bandwagon. What
can I say? I don’t like it when ponytails leave kinks in my hair
in weird places! Plus they all look so aesthetic and I wanted
to be trendy like everyone else! Lol These claw clips are really
great quality clips that I think would work great with all types
of hair. I know they are able to stay in my super thin hair
which is something most clips don’t do so that’s some bonus
points for them right there! Plus they come in these really
cute colors and are affordable.
Orange Workout Set
TikTok made me buy this and I was definitely skeptical. I had
never been one to workout in tight clothing let alone a
two piece workout set like this. However, after I tried it on
I fell in love. I was totally feeling myself in the set and you
know when you are feeling good about how you look in your
workout gear you have a much better sweat sesh.
My first set of booty bands came from Amazon and they
were frustrating. They were thin and stuck together and
then when it came time to use them for a workout they would
roll up my leg every dang time. It got to the point where I just
quit using them. Then, one day I found these booty bands on
Amazon and my life changed. Okay…that might be a bit
dramatic, but my workouts that had any band work in them did
change for the better. These are a nice, thick material that stay
put when I use them keeping me from getting overly frustrated
and ending my workout early.
Colorful Koala leggings
For the longest time I wasn’t a fan of leggings. However, I
started getting more serious about working out again and found
that leggings are actually a pretty good workout clothing option
to have and have since been on the hunt to find the best ones.
These from Colorful Koala are definitely front runners. They are
insanely soft, comfortable to wear all day long or for any workout
session that I have planned, and they fit true to size.
Oogie boogie inflatable
Okay I am going to group the Oogie Boogie and sandworm
inflatables together since they are the same type of item
and were bought for the same event. Lol I bought both of
these for the 2021 Halloween party (which was Tim Burton
themed) and I couldn’t have been more happy with my decision
to buy them both. The sandworm not only lit up but also had
a moving tongue and was the perfect photo op for the guests!
Then, in the kitchen you stepped inside Oogie Boogie’s lair with
him (and lock, shock, and barrel) there to greet you as you spun for prizes.
Honestly, I bought this robe for the sole reason that I wanted
to feel like a Victoria Secret model. Lol I really like it though.
The satin it is made of is very soft on my skin and makes
it comfortable to wear all year round.
I finally found a solution to storing my spices (I think lol) and
after watching a few Instagram reels I knew I wanted them
all to be in matching glass jars and labels. Since I bought
the organic spices they already came in the glass jars so
the only thing I was missing was the labels. I really liked the
look of these so that’s what we went with.
I was skeptical about buying this jumpsuit because I am not
one that typically wears clothes like this and I also thought
it would look too casual on me. However, I was worrying
for no reason. This jumpsuit looks extremely cute on, can
be dressed up with jewelry, pairs great with the Cushionaire
sandals I mentioned earlier, and it is seriously one of the most
comfortable things ever. Absolutely perfect for travel!
I thought this necklace was just too cute to pass up and if
it ever were to get lost at least people would know who it
belongs to. Okay that was a bad joke. Lol The length of this
necklace is really nice and I have found that it goes with almost any outfit.
I don’t think it would be a leap to say that TikTok owned
me last year and I bought sooooo much stuff because of
the videos I saw on there including these sunglasses.
Before this last year I owned one pair of sunglasses. I always
had trouble finding ones that I thought looked good on me and
I never really understood why I needed more than one pair anyway
because I mean, I could only ever wear one at a time, so what was
the point? Ask me how many pairs of sunglasses I have now. 7.
Yup. 7. And these black ones from Amazon are easily my favorite.
I feel like such a boss in them and they actually do a great job of
keeping the sun from burning my eyeballs.
Marvel Eyeshadow Palettes
I bought these solely because they were Marvel themed, but
man was I surprised by their pigmentation! Honestly I think
these eyeshadows could rival my Urban Decay Naked palette.
The only issue I ran into with these are the glitter shades. They didn’t
apply well at all and had a TON of fallout. Otherwise I love.
I have always liked the look of layered necklaces, but my favorite
part about this set is that they all come separate so I can wear
all three together, or only two, or even just one at a time! I haven’t
noticed the gold coming off the necklaces or turning my skin green
so I would say not only are they cute, but good quality as well!
The Gym People Workout Top
I bought a lot of workout clothes in 2021, but my favorite workout
top from the year would have to be this one. It doesn’t rub my
armpits raw and it doesn’t suffocate the girls which are two of
the biggest issues I tend to find with workout tops. I also love the
color and it is really soft to the touch. The only thing I have noticed
about it that is less than ideal is that it has started to pill a little in a couple places, but I actually think that might have been from when I was hiking a mountain and fell and scraped my back on the rocks. Lol
Organizing my fridge has been an ongoing struggle for quite
some time, but I feel like I made some good progress in
2021 including the addition of these plastic bottles. Now all
my juices look so cute in my fridge!
Halloween Squad Shirt
I’m going to make quite the statement here. This shirt was
my favorite clothing purchase from Amazon in 2021. Not
only is it comfortable (it does fit a little oversized), but the
design on the front of the shirt is unbeatable. I love how the
killers are all looking like they are part of a greaser gang. 10/10.
Skeleton Car Coasters
These coasters are literally a snapshot of me in the afterlife
forever throwing up a peace sign. Lol I bought these to decorate
my car for Halloween, but honestly have been thinking about keeping
them in there all year round. Shoot I might just keep all my
Halloween decorations up. I mean, we already made it through
Christmas and they didn’t come down for that so why take them down now? Lol
