Ah! Fall is finally here! After months of talking about it, I can finally wear jeans outside of my house without becoming drenched in sweat. Hurray!!!
With the cooler temps, I thought celebrating via an Amazon shopping spree would be a fun time! It’s just a few items that I thought would be worth sharing.
I heard about this backpack from the lovely Jane Foster, of Southern Shine, when she was looking for a handbag to travel with. I managed to see the black one in person and the quality was so good, I had to have it for myself! I ordered the brown one because I tend to go more towards browns in the fall and I was blown away when it came in. It’s a great size, weight, and feel. The little clutch that it comes with is perfect to hold your cards or even a lip gloss too! It’s not too knock-off-y, just a pretty checkered print faux leather bag! Perfect for pumpkin patches and fall festivals. For under $30 – this is a great deal!
O.k. so I didn’t have high hopes for this tee and when I pulled it out of the packaging, I thought “Eh- it kind of looks like a pj top.” It has a soft sateen look that I wasn’t sure about. Then I tried it on and was pleasantly surprised. It is heavier knit than a tee, but still lightweight. It can be worn off-the-shoulder or not. The blouson sleeves are a nice detail! For the price, its a steal! Oh, and it’s got a band at the bottom to make it more of an oversized fit if you choose.
Based on the stock photo I thought this was going to be a bit more sweatshirt and not tee, but it is actually a loved sleeved thicker knit tee which I happen to love! It comes in a couple other colors, but I though black with black jeans and a camel colored vest would be super chic…and of course, paired with a pleated skirt (last years’ Target version.) Definitely good quality and runs true to size.
I ordered the same version of this sweater from another seller on Amazon about 6-8 weeks ago and paired it with white denim. I think the way it came to me (completely vacuum sealed and wrinkly) was a bit off-putting. I loved the stripes and the colors of this sweater so I tried it again from another seller and LO and BEHOLD it takes the cake! So soft, but lightweight and perfect with jeans of all variety.
Fuzzy Fleece Bomber Jacket $30.99 (wearing size Small)
I ordered this because I hadn’t seen it on a million other bloggers yet. I have seen boutique pieces similar and they are going for close to $100….so if I was able to snag it at a third of that price, I was going to be stoked! Well, the jacket was good, but it wasn’t exactly what I had hoped for. I was wanting a more cropped cut, but it fit more like a traditional bomber jacket. Very soft inside and a good weight. I also love the pink color with blue and black denim! It’s just a different piece and it comes in a pretty cognac color that I’m debating on snagging too!
I heard about these from Mallory – Shop Your Senses and the ones she blogged about (the Volcano and Red Currant Scents) were sold out, so I thought I would try these out since I’m in the throes of all the fall scents lately. Well, I only tried 5 drops of the Harvest Spice scent in a diffuser and WHOA…..it was overpowering. In fact, it gave me a headache. Needless to say, I’m debating on trying another scent – but I will say that for the cost and the amount of concentrated oil you get, it’s definitely a good value. I will say that I am a huge fan of essential oils and for both a fall scent AND to kill the germs lurking around, Thieves Essential Oil by Young Living is AMAZING.
Completely random, but I wanted to include this toothbrush because it is SO. Good. It’s claim is to improve whitening and plaque removal within 2 weeks. I’m not sure scientifically if it did these things, but my whole mouth felt cleaner and brighter after using this contraption. I had a bit of an issue after using it for a month with the charger and the sellers sent me a brand new one – at no cost to me! It would make a great gift for someone who is still using the good ol’ fashion toothbrush.
I hope you’ve enjoyed some of my finds! Tell me what your favorite item was?
