2020 Best Sellers: Reader Favorites

Amazon Favorites:

Salad Chopper & Blade- Makes the perfect chopped salad!

Glass Tumbler & BPA Free Straw- There’s something about a good glass that makes you drink more water. I love the silicone slip on this one. It’s under $20 and something I use everyday.

Stain Remover- There’s a reason this stuff has such a loyal following and tons of great reviews. It’s the reason I’m able to have white furniture with two toddlers.

Restoration Hardware Dupes:

These are always top sellers. If you want to see a full line up of Restoration Hardware look for less items, you can check out this blog post HERE!

Console Table- Looks just like the RH version for 1/3 of the price. Love the way it looks with two stools underneath and a piece of artwork above. Throw a few coffee table books and a decorative bowl on and it’ll be perfect!

Swivel Armchairs- We have these and love these. They are really comfortable. The back cushion and bottom cushion can be washed. (Don’t dry!)

Home Decor:

Rug Runner- We have this as our kitchen runner and absolutely love it. Comes in several different sizes. It’s sold out multiple times this year, but is currently in stock!

Books By Color- This is how we built the ombre bookshelves in our office. There are several different color variants available. You measure the shelf you are wanting to do and they sell these by the foot.

Face Masks- 3 For $12 and breathable.

Wine Chiller- Ya’ll are my kind of people when a wine chiller is a top seller! Ha! This makes the perfect gift and works really well!

Faux Shearling Slides- Go a 1/2 size up in these. They look so much like the popular Jenni Kayne version for 1/4 of the price. I wear mine non stop.

Best Toddler PJ’s/Base Set- We have these in several colors for the boys. They can be pajamas or I like to put a denim jacket, boots and hat with them as a top/bottom as well.

Sweater Romper- This has been such a hit because it’s so cozy, but can thick enough to be worn out of the house as well. I love wearing it with some sneakers and a jacket over as well. Would be cute with tights and boots as well.

Le Labo Dupes:

No surprise that the best sellers of the year were Le Labo Santal Dupes. The essential oil by Le Labo is $144 and this one is $25. It makes your house smell amazing! The candle has a wooden wick so you get that nice crackling sound. I took the sticker off to make it look more high end.

You can find the essential oil HERE and the candle HERE.

Best Recent Internet Purchases

I’ve noticed as my time at home has increased…. so has my online shopping. HA! I truly do love scouring the internet for fun finds to make life easier, great sales or that perfect closet staple piece. There are always lots of returns. I only keep the best of the best and of course pass the gold finds on to ya’ll! Here are the best recent internet purchases that I think you’ll love!

Cropped Cami- This is under $20 and comes in a variety of color options. It’s super comfortable and is great for lounging or working out. There is some padding inside. I sized up for a more comfortable fit and for it to be a bit longer to wear with high rise pants and not show too much mid section.

Tortoise Nike’s- These sneakers are so cute with the tortoise shell swoosh detailing. They are very light weight and neutral enough to wear with anything. At $55 on sale… you just can’t go wrong. If you are in between sizes or if you have a wide foot, size up 1/2 size.

Salad Chopper & Blade- Summertime calls for lots of salad and this bowl and blade makes the perfect chopped salad at home. The restaurant Chopt is a favorite of ours and this is a way to re-create it (easily) at home.

Tennis Bracelet- I have been lusting after a diamond tennis bracelet for years. It’s such a classic and looks great dressed up or down. Super cute stacked with other bracelets or worn alone. This is a faux version, but you could NEVER tell. The quality is shockingly good for the $70 sale price tag. I’ve worn it every day since purchasing it.

Folex Stain Remover- Thanks to our two toddler boys, stains are a daily occurrence. The only way we are able to keep our white furniture clean is with this stain remover. My husband discovered this years ago and it’s SUCH A GEM.

Self Tanner- Gradual self tanner that is fool proof! It’s a pretty golden color with no orange oompa loompa hue. This big bottle is normally $90, but it’s on sale for $36! Exfoliate in the shower before putting it on and wash your hands after for an easy glow.

No Touch Key & Door Opener- This has been so great to have to minimize exposure to germs. You just put this key on your keychain and you can use it to open doors, touch buttons, elevator knobs, etc.

Amazon Home Organization

amazon home organization

A calm, clean and organized home can do wonders on your mental state. Everything is easier when you can find it. Creating a space that is organized can help everyone stay calm.

Since many of us are home now this is a great time to utilize freed up time to organize our homes. All of these are Amazon home organization finds so that you don’t need to leave to grab them and they arrive quickly.

I’ve broken it down by different spaces. Start with something small- under the sink or a drawer. It helps to feel less overwhelming.

When organizing- take out everything from the space first. Then you can sort like objects and use the organizers to keep like items together.

I also LOVE using these labels. These are not Amazon, but worth it. They make the organization easy to keep up with.

March Must Haves

March Must Haves

March Must Haves

Spring is on the horizon! This is a curated list of intentional pieces, fashion and home. All these are meant to be worn with each other or styled with other neutral home items. I’ve been making a big effort to only purchase items that can get a lot of use! I’ve also started to include art pieces. I love the idea of slowly filling your space with art that speaks to you. Creativity is fostered in spaces filled with special art pieces.

** Click Any Item To Shop!**

Dainty Gold Cross Necklace– Gold accessories are still all the rage for spring! This piece is dainty and can be easily layered with other pieces or worn alone.

Dove Doodle Art– Just purchased this new art piece for my living room. Doves are a symbol of peace which makes a great statement in your home. The texture is so great on this one as well!

Horse Graphic Tee- Anine Bing are by far my favorite graphic tees. They are a bit on the pricey side, but hold up super well.

Straw Hat- An absolute March must haves staple! Shield yourself from the upcoming sun with this large brim hat. It is selling out fast (it’s that good!) so if you are loving it go ahead and “add to cart!”

Grey Wine Glasses- These smokey grey wine glasses are neutral, but with such a fun twist. A total steal at $6 a piece!!!

Snakeskin Loafer- I ordered these in cognac and now I’m eyeing the snakeskin. They are super comfortable and perfect for spring. (I have a discount code on these! BEAUSANDASHLEY20 will get you 20% off.)

Trench Coat- This might just be the find of the season. This lightweight trench coat is $50 and looks nearly identical to the Burberry one. (That one will cost you around $2k!) Hurry, this one is selling out fast.

Cream Clutch- Can you believe this is an Amazon find!? At $35 this clutch is such a steal. It looks much more high end in person. The cream colored is perfect for spring.

Ruffled Marble Bowl- This decorative bowl has been one of my absolute favorite purchases lately. It comes in 3 sizes. I ordered the large as a decorative bowl in our dining room and just went back and ordered the small to hold rings on my nightstand. They add so much texture and interest to any space. Would also make a really pretty gift or add eggs inside for Easter!

Gold Statement Ring- This ring adds that little something to any outfit.

Short Sleeve Sweatshirt- This is the perfect spring transition piece and a perfect March must haves item. It is a bit on the pricey side, but made really well. It’s one of those items you will always be grabbing towards. Love it paired with denim shorts for a casual look or a bit dressed up with a white pants, layered necklaces and a wedge sandal.

All of these recent purchases have added so much to my wardrobe/home. Highly recommend them all!

** Click on any item to shop.**

January Must Haves

Gold Accessories.
This herringbone necklace is the perfect everyday piece. It’s affordable, but looks much more high end than it’s price tag.

Inspiring Art. This tribal art piece was a love at first sight piece! Art is always an investment, but this year I want to curate a few pieces for our home. It makes a home feel more personal and inspiring. If you aren’t ready to make an investment just yet, check out the collection HERE. These fine art prints are super affordable and they make framing simple.

Graphic Tees. New Year, Same graphic tee obsession. I’m obsessed with this designer and love the lighter look on THIS ONE .

Hero Hats. Janessa Leone hats rarely go on sale and their quality and look makes them the perfect investment hat. I’m loving this bone color. My motto for fashion lately is fewer, better pieces. If you love this look, but not the price tag THIS HAT is similar and less costly.

Interesting Sunglasses. Classic, but make it interesting. These Ray Bans are a perfect combo of classic, but on trend and fun. Finding neutral/staple items doesn’t equal boring!

Over The Knee Cowboy Style Boots I can not believe these are on sale for $52!!!! Everyone should run and get these. They look MUCH more high end than the price reflects. The pull straps and swoop in the front make these so perfect and you can wear them over and over.

Smell Good Essential Oil. This essential oil is an Amazon find and smells just like the Le Labo perfume that is so $$$. It makes your house smell super luxurious. I started by purchasing the small bottle. It lasted me about 3 months so I went ahead and purchased a larger size. It’s become my favorite household thing to have on hand.

Silky Striped PJ’s. Let’s be real…. in the winter when it’s dark at 4p.m. there is a lot of time spent at home. I love that these feel so comfortable and look adorable as well. They are currently on sale for under $80 and would make a great gift if you are in the market for one as well.

Tortoise Shell Home Decor. This Vase is under $30 and SUCH a good find. I recently purchased it for our dining room and went back to get another. Neutral enough to blend with any decor, but also unique.

Design Friendly Storage.– If you are getting your life organized this New Year this piece is for you. It’s a small chest that packs a design punch with all the texture. This is going in our living room to hide tv equipment and cords, but would be great anywhere. It’d make a good toy catch all for your living area as well. (P.S. if you are on the organizing train, be sure to check out THIS POST about organizing your pantry.)

Happy (last minute) shopping! You got this.

Best Finds On Amazon For Spring

I’ve been scouring Amazon like a crazy lady lately and finding some really great deals (and dupes!)

If you haven’t checked the new look for less section.. you can find it HERE. It’s tons of designer look a like items, and several are Amazon finds.

Laundry Detergent– I’ve shared this before, but there is something about this fresh scent in spring that just can’t be beat. It will make your whole house smell amazing while you are washing items, and impress any guest when you wash your sheets in this. Since it’s a little bit pricey I use it on sheets, blankets and items that go several times in between washes. It lasts me a very long time this way.

Marble Diffuser– I ordered one of these to diffuse our lavender essential oil at night and immediately ordered two more for the main living area.

Lip Mask-– I didn’t even know that I needed a night lip mask, but it is SO GOOD.

Tan Sunglasses-– The look so much like the Celine version and our under $10.

Clear Tote Bag– This looks JUST like the Staud version, and comes in multiple other colors as well. Such a great piece for spring and summer!

Barefoot Dreams- The softest blanket you will ever own! It is a splurge, but it’s just that good. These are always sold out, but there are a few left in stock here!

Spice Rack (Stadium Style)– Spring cleaning time is here! This $9 spice rack totally transformed our cabinets.

Make Up Organizer– It’s made for travel to protect your make up from breaking, but can be used anytime. $18.. but seems like it should be much more for the quality.

Lululemon Sports Bra Dupe– Comes in several other colors as well. It runs just a bit small.

Statement Earrings-Perfect for spring and under $10. Make a great little gift for a friend as well.

7. No Show, No Slip Socks. They are very thin, but they don’t slip at all and are a true “no show.” I love wearing these with my Golden Goose sneakers.

8. Vanilla Collagen Powder. I’ve been putting this into my coffee every morning, and it’s been GREAT. It’s really helping my skin. Highly recommend this brand.
