We’re friends, right? Friends share things. Important things. Things like, the best ways to get your kid to sleep. The secret way to lose the last 10 post baby pounds. And, of course, the best items she has ever bought on Amazon.
So, here we go, the TOP 11 ITEMS I have ever bought on Amazon (and our readers have LOVED them as well!). They’re useful. They’re fun. They’ll make life awesomer!
1. Instant Pot Pressure Cooker
Raise your hand if you’ve EVER forgotten to defrost the chicken breast for dinner. 5pm and you have nothing but a frozen block of chicken. No worries. Just throw that frozen chicken into your Instant Pot, and in a quick 14 minutes, you have perfectly cooked chicken, ready to be shredded and put into your dish. This Instant Pot is a total game changer for every busy woman. It acts as a slow cooker, rice cooker, pressure cooker and MORE. Get rid of ALL your appliances and just keep this. I am obsessed, use it almost daily, and can’t wait for you to try it! You can learn a lot more in THIS post.
2. Blanket Scarf
This is currently my FAVORITE accessory. I love that there are a million ways to wear it. I love how big and warm it is. I love how you can throw it on with a casual t- shirt and jeans or use it to dress up a cozy dress. Did I mention I love the price? I own it in camel and really want it in black. There are many different colors and versions.They also make wonderful gifts for the women in your life. All my kids’ teachers are receiving these this year!
One of my dear friends told me about this book and it’s AMAZING. If you have younger children or grandchildren learning to read, this is your greatest asset. Not exaggerating. It breaks down learning to read into 100 short lessons that build upon each other. In about 15 minutes a day, your kid WILL be reading. It’s worked on all of Missy’s kids and I’m a believer now as well!

4. Bissell Steam Mop
Mopping the floors used to be something I dreaded. It took forever and made a wet mess. Now I can clean my floors, killing 99% of bacteria, all with water and steam in about 5 minutes. This thing is AWESOME. Remind me to tell you about the time I used it to steam my kids’ boogers off the wall. (Sick, I know.) Curious as to all the ways you can use a steam mop? Be sure to read THIS POST.
5. Bare Minerals Bare Skin Concealer
As someone who runs off very little sleep, I’ve learned the power of a good concealer. This stuff is powerful. I love it and reccommend it to everyone because it’s so light, but covers well. If you’re looking to try a concealer that works, and won’t break the bank, this is it. I use it daily and won’t ever change!
The toys that never get old! My kids and I play with these together and it’s a joy each time. They are essentially, magnetic building blocks in lots of different shapes and colors. They come in lots of different sets, but this one is my favorite because it’s huge! These are high quality, appeal to ALL ages, and will last forever! If you ever need some alone time, bust these babies out!
Been searching for the BEST sunless tanner? Afraid to try sunless tanner in fear of turning into something resembling an Oompa Loompa? I’m telling you, this is your new best friend. I use it all through the dark days of winter and always have a nice healthy glow when I do. I’ve tried a lot, and this baby is THE BEST. Oh, an extra tip, invest in this mitt to apply. It makes a world of streak-free difference.
8. Hobo “Lauren” wallet
If you haven’t seen my review of the Hobo on Facebook, you’re missing the greatest wallet ever made. No Joke. My girlfriend spoiled me on my 30th birthday with one, and it’s been my favorite gift of all time. They are so spacious. Literally, a place for everything. Great to throw in your diaper bag, purse or grab as a clutch! Not to mention, they last forever – she’s had hers almost 10 years. Again, worth every penny.
9. Plasma Cars
If you haven’t jumped on the plasma car obsessed train, you aren’t living. My kiddos (and occasionally my husband) are CONSTANTLY on these. They are ride on toys, propelled by wiggling the steering wheel and your body. They can book! I feel like these appeal to all ages of kids, and adults! We have so much fun with them and I’ve had many friends agree – they’re the best!
10. Harry Potter Illustrated Books
What can I say? I’m a little bit of a sucker for anything Harry Potter. Especially, these stunningly beautiful books, and I’m not alone – check out the reviews! They’re big. They’re solid. They’re the perfect book to read as a family. A lot of great memories made, and to be made with these favorite books. Also, my friend RAVES about the Harry Potter audio books. The reader is AMAZING! He does all the voices and is so fun to listen to. Traveling for holidays will be so much better with this to listen to! And SWEET DEAL right now…you can get 2 of them FREE when you sign up for audible. (FREE trial!).
11. Nose Frida
Yes my friends, this IS a snot sucker. And no, the snot DOESN’T get in your mouth. If you have little ones, I SWEAR by this. In fact, I get it for all the new moms I know. Great baby shower gift. It’s a little weird, but it is a life saver and so much better than those bulbs the hospital gives you! Try it. You’ll never go back and you will have a new found appreciation for the ultimate snot sucker.
