10 Amazon Favorites for January

It’s been a hot minute since I shared some Amazon finds, so let’s start the year with a roundup of a variety of items I ordered and loved.

Including two of may favorite sweatshirts, some designer dupes, a travel hack, beauty tools and more!

10 Amazon Favorites for January

10 Amazon Favorites for January

Oversized Sweatshirt

I bought this sweatshirt in July in grey and just ordered another one in “coffee”.

This simple, basic sweatshirt works well if you’re going for a crisp, clean, athleisure look like Princess Diana going to the gym.

I wear it at least once a week, paired with leggings and sneakers, and to feel polished, I add a few necklaces and hoop earrings.

Available in over two dozen colors, in small – extra-large, it’s oversized so consider sizing down.

There is also a 10% coupon today.

BAGSMART Compression Packing Cubes

My annual girls’ trip to Key West is at the end of the month.

Last year, we stayed for three nights, and getting everything into my carry-on was a battle.

We added an extra night this year, and I am determined not to have to check. So, I ordered these compression cubes to give me a fighting chance.

Compression packing cubes are different from traditional cubes. These have an extra zipper designed to help push out any excess air to make the bag as compact as possible.

BAGSMART is a fantastic line of travel items on Amazon; I also have their travel hanging toiletry bag and this slim jewelry holder.

I’ll keep you posted on my success. My biggest challenge is going to be packing all my products. 😉

TriPole Mini Portable Fan Powerful Personal Handheld Battery 

I can be annoyingly extra, so it makes sense that I bought a handheld fan to use during my skincare routine.

It feels like it takes forever for serums and oils to dry, so I hold this by my face in between steps and it helps speed up the process.

Foldable Silicone Makeup Brush Cleaner Bowl

This is a friendly reminder to wash your makeup brushes.

I have this $4 silicone makeup brush cleaner bowl will help you quickly and easily clean your brushes and sponges.

You can use Micellar Water, Dr. Bronner’s Castile Soap, or simple Dawn Dish Soap.

Don’t saturate the brush, just wash the bristles.

Woven Tote 

I was 100% influenced to buy this woven tote and I’m so happy I did. It’s elegant, with a high-end look, it holds a lot and is light-weight.

It’s a bit pricer for an Amazon find but still under $100.

I like that you can carry it by the handle OR as a crossbody.

I bought the largest size and it fits my oversized wallet, both my reading and sunglass caes, my planner, and all the other crap I get asked to carry throughout the day.

Dr. Jart+ Mini Cicapair™ Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment 

My skin is fair and sensitive, so I deal with a lot of redness on my cheeks and nose. It’s really frustrating.

Recently, I started using the Dr. Jart+ Mini Cicapair™ Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment, and it helps a lot.

I wear this on days I’m looking a little too ruddy. Apply after moisturizer, since it has SPF 30 and warm it between your fingers for a few seconds.

You’ll see an instant difference. I let it set for a minute or two before I add concealer or foundation, I find I need less coverage after it settles into my skin.

Womens Sweatshirts Half Zip Cropped Pullover Fleece Quarter Zipper 

I featured this half zip sweatshirt last week, but it’s worth repeating.

I LOVE this thing. I own it in several colors, including this sophisticated “coffee” color below.

They are calling it cropped, but it is not. I’m 5’10 an it fits me like a regular sweatshirt.

For $33 this is a steal compared to what you would spend for a similar style at designer athleisure store.

Chunky Textured Cardigan

I thought this textured cardigan was SUCH a cool find. Whenever I come across an Amazon piece that looks like it came from a boutique, I give it a try.

I picked it up in the combination below, in the medium for a slimmer fit.

I’ll wear over a black tank, slim black bottoms and knee high boots.

New Balance Women’s Fresh Foam Roav V1 Sneaker

Listen, I have a sneaker issue, I know this. There was a time in my life when I thought, by this age, I would have a closet full of designer heels.

Turns out, sneakers make more sense.

If you’re looking for an under $100 option, consider this pair form Nike. They are comfortable, have nice arch support and look chic.

I have the color way below, since I wear so many athletic neutrals but there are many color combinations from subtle to colorful. Runs true to size.

Chunky Gold Hoop Earrings

Finally, I caved a bought these viral gold earrings, dupes for the Bottega’s that retail for $1,300.

Can you imagine?

What I think is so funny about these dupes is that they are more popular than the inspiration.

So if you’re wearing the Bottega’s people probably assume they are from Amazon. Lol.

These are surprisingly lightweight, gold-plated, and hypoallergenic. I went with the smallest size, priced at $10.

Just ordered the fan and am thinking about the New Balance sneaker. I added them on my Amazon list so that I could decide. Thanks!

I just came across those same workout tanks...not needing to wear an additional bra makes them so perfect.
