Happy Wednesday Yall! 2020 is in full swing and like everyone else we are trying to hit refresh, get organized and make improvements for the new year.. So far, so good – don’t ask me what that looks like in 3 months though! Lol. Anyway – one of my guilty pleasures is Amazon shopping and for a while I was doing pretty good at sharing the fun finds with you guys and I want to get back to that! I love both the convenience of quickly shopping and getting free shipping on things that I would otherwise have to make a trip to the store for AND finding random good priced deals!
So here is a round up of my favorite Amazon buys this week!
After we got all of our Christmas stuff down and put away, I wanted to just kind of refresh our living room a little. Throw pillows and blankets are one of my favorite ways to change up the look/feel of a room without making a huge change or breaking the bank! I wanted to keep the room light, airy and kind of neutral and these cream velvet pillow covers were the perfect find! They’re super soft and such good quality. I also found these leather pillow covers that I LOVE. They add such a sophisticated look! I love that they are both pillow covers so that if I want to switch up the pillows for the next season, I can easily store them without taking up a ton of space. These pillow inserts are really comfortable and can be used with different covers anytime you feel like switching up your decor!
I LOVE throw blankets and I am obsessed with the color of this one! Adds a little bit of color to the room, but is subtle and still kind of neutral. The knit is so pretty and perfect for spring which is just right around the corner!
I feel like decorating and organizing always go hand in hand and I’ve been working on getting my closet better organized and functional. Pants have always been one thing that I have had trouble keeping neat – either they get shoved in a drawer (which is a pain) or they get hung up and the weight of them bends and ruins hangers. I grabbed some of these S shaped hangers – they’re super sturdy, can hold up to 5 pairs of pants and save a TON of space in the closet.
One of my New Years goals was to not eat out as much at lunch. We do pretty good at dinner, but lunch is harder for me! It’s so easy just run grab something to eat with friends or coworkers rather than actually spending time preparing a lunch for the day. BUT! I found these divided glass tupperware containers and have been trying to prep lunch for me in them when I prep the kid’s lunches. When they are done ahead of time it’s much easier to not want to go out – which saves money AND calories…Because it’s way harder to eat healthy when I eat out! I love that these containers are glass and can be microwaved without worrying about the effects of heating plastic AND they come with a cute little set of utensils!
My 2nd new years goals is to read more! I took some recommendations from yall and settled on The Nightingale as my first book of the year. I am about 3/4 of the way through it and have a hard time putting it down!! It’s about sisters living in France during WWII/the Holocaust – such a good story and while I haven’t gotten to the ending yet I am loving it and would highly recommend it so far!
Another book I have enjoyed spending time reading is this New Morning Mercies Devotional. It’s a daily devotional giving insight and encouragement through the Gospel with suggested Bible reading/study verses. I’m obviously only a couple weeks in, but have enjoyed the daily readings!
Well, that’s a wrap for this week! Thanks for visiting the site – hope you enjoyed it. Have a great rest of your week!
