A few Home Favorites I found on Amazon

Sibling Fun

I was really tempted by the Simple Human mirror that was on sale during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I mean, the sale price was low given the starting price and the mirror looked really cool. Some reviews I read, though, confirmed what I was thinking. One said it was over-engineered and under-designed and I can kind of understand what they meant. The cool features of the mirror are not things that are terribly important to me, and ultimately I decided I’d rather save my money to spend it elsewhere.

I did need a new vanity mirror, though, since the one I bought a few years ago broke. I wanted something a bit larger and that would still have a tilting option. Amazon, naturally, had tons of mirrors and I ultimately landed on this one. I love, LOVE, that it can swivel from portrait to landscape and tilts as well. It sits a little bit low for my preference so I’m planning on looking for a decorative or acrylic box to set it on.

While I was enjoying my new mirror, I was reminded of some other successful Amazon purchases that I use very regularly. Below are a few of my most used and favorite things.

Hanging Jewelry Organizer – I have a bit more space in my closet at the new house but I love being able to see all of my statement earrings and bigger necklaces while they are stored in this hanging organizer.

Swiveling Tabletop Mirror – This is the mirror pictured above.

Handheld Steamer – I used to have a large steamer on wheels that I stored by my vacuum but I realized that I really only rarely used it on a few shirts so I switched over to this handheld and never looked back. It heats up so quickly and I can steam several shirts before needed to refill it with more water! I love how small it is!

Ultrasonic Jewelry Cleaner – My sister inspired this purchase because she also has a jewelry cleaning machine. I have to say, I was really impressed with how much cleaner my rings looked in only 90 seconds. I haven’t tried it with jewelry cleaning solution yet but that’ll be my next step!

Dymo MobileLabeler – I use this mobile labeler for so many things, both in business and in my home. It’s easy to use, allows you to customize your labels, and makes you feel like an organization goddess.

By the way, I have a lot of my other favorites from Amazon linked up for you right here, if you want to check it out!

I have a handheld steamer and IT’S THE BEST THING EVER! I steam in front of the TV, in different rooms, whenever, wherever and I actually enjoy it! Life changer.

That jewelry cleaner sounds amazing! The one thing I’m super careful about when it comes to my jewelry is making sure it doesn’t get stained with perfumes or that my sweat or hair products don’t get it dirty but with that cleaner I’d be much more relaxed.

This came at the perfect time – I’ve been looking for a good square vanity mirror and mini steamer to send with my daughter for college! Thank you!

Amazon is where the good stuff’s at! I hate that I have to pay a huge delivery fee though since I don’t live in the US! ❤️✨

Hey Kate,
I wanted to let you know about the ultrasonic jewelry cleaner you mentioned above. I had purchased one years ago and loved how it made my rings shine! Until…about 6 years ago. I was told by my insurance company that I will need to have my rings inspected once a year to keep the insurance up to date, so I took them to my jeweler and found that every single one of my rings had several loose stones in them, I was told that this was caused by the ultrasonic cleaner I was using. Well I stopped using it of course. And now our daughter was just married on 6.29.19 and her adorable husband bought her an ultrasonic cleaner to help clean her new babbles clean. When she told me about it, I shared with her my experience with the cleaner. To be safe she took her rings to her local jeweler in Chicago and low and behold….. Yep each ring has loose stones. She had only used the cleaner 3 times….. I just thought I would pass this story on to you. Please have your jewelry checked if you use this kind of cleaner, they are powerful little buggers!

Thanks for letting me know! I’m surprised to hear this but I’ll keep a close eye on my rings!

I moved into a new home and have the opportunity to set up a vanity table/dressing area in a spare bedroom. Would you share any photos of how you arrange your vanity? I am sure it’s lovely and I could use some inspiration. Thank you.

Hey, the steamer looks fantastic! It really is smaller than I thought it would be. Thank you for sharing!

That’s a great vanity mirror! I was looking for something that wasn’t too big but could be adjusted. Thank you for sharing!
