Random Purchases & Finds I've Been Loving
Hi, friends! Here are a few random purchases & finds that I snagged these past few months and have been loving. I linked them all for you, so you can shop them as well!
Portable charger from Amazon
I bought this portable charger for my summer travels, and I swear on my life it is one of the best purchases I have ever made. It has different cables so I can use it for my Kindle, headphones, phone, laptop, ring light, etc. And the battery life lasts a long time! Definitely, definitely recommend grabbing one. I never leave the house without it. Shop it here.
2. Bluetooth wireless headphones from Amazon
I love listening to music and audiobooks when I'm on the go, but I refuse to pay an insane amount of money for headphones, and these ones are really great for the price point. They've held up really great, I even toted them across the Atlantic to Spain over the summer! Worth checking out if you want a wallet-friendly option! Shop them here.
3. Portable bluetooth speaker from Amazon
I bought this speaker for my birthday party last month, and I was pleasantly surprised how well it works for the price point. It was super easy to set up, and the sound quality is awesome. I'm not a huge electronic gadget person, so this did the job just fine for me! Shop this speaker here!
4. White sneakers from Naturalizer
These sneakers are another item I snagged before my trip to Europe this past summer, and they were worth every penny! Because I have wide feet, and I knew we would be doing a ton of walking, I wanted something cute but with lots of comfort. Naturalizer is a great brand when looking for exactly that, and while these were a bit of a splurge, they were a perfect travel companion. Shop these sneakers here!
5. Gold Hoops from Madewell
If you're looking for a pair of gold hoops that go with pretty much everything, look no further. Madewell did a really great job with these earrings, especially considering the price point. Whenever I need to quickly accessorize an outfit, I reach for these, because they are so universally flattering. Shop these hoops here!
6. Legal Pad set from Simplified
If you know me, you know my love for Emily Ley and her brand Simplified runs deep. I fell in love with her back when I was fresh out of college, and I love everything her brand stands for. Her line of beautifully crafted organization and office products help women simplify their busy lives and make room for what Emily calls "the good stuff". This set of 2 legal pads is one of my favorite items in her whole shop. They are made with thick and sturdy Mohawk paper, so you never have to worry about tearing or ripping. And I love that you get 2 for the price of one! Shop these legal pads here!
7. Super comfy Old Navy t-shirt
Trust me when I say this is one of the comfiest shirts I've ever owned! I got mine one size up, too, so its extra roomy and cozy for fall and winter nights snuggled up on the couch. Definitely a favorite of mine, and a great price, too! Shop this shirt here.
8. Stainless steel water bottle from Simple Modern
I found this stainless steel water bottle at Target when I was looking for something similar to a Hydro Flask. This option is half the price and just as great, if you ask me. I've taken it on a lot of trips and it's held up really well. There are tons of cute colors available, too! Shop this water bottle here!
9. Daily Ritual zip-up hoodie
I've had this hoodie for over 2 years now, and I still love it! It's a lot warmer than it looks, so it's perfect for the changing seasons, and the price point is great! It runs a little large, but I like the roomier fit. Shop this hoodie here!
10. If The Shoe Fits by Julie Murphy
I got this book when I was on a girls trip with my BFF Rachel, because we are both reading fanatics, and as soon as I started reading it I fell in love. This book has a plus-sized heroine, which is unfortunately rare in the contemporary romance genre. It follows Cindy, who is the first plus-sized contestant on a reality dating show After Midnight (basically The Bachelor). She becomes a body-positivity icon overnight, and finds herself actually falling for the show's main suitor, despite her doubts. This book was a really fun journey to go on, with lots of unexpected twists & turns, and I really loved how the main character wasn't obsessed with her size or weight, but instead knew her worth and wasn't fixated on her appearance. Definitely give this book a read! You can find it here!
11 Fashion back-pack from Target
This fashion backpack is one of my unexpected favorites. I bought it because I needed something for walking around the city that would still be cute & stylish, but it's ended up being a purchase I'm so glad I made. The one I have is a different pattern, but I think next I want to snag this blue one. It's from Target, and is set at a great price point! Perfect for traveling, commuting to work, or if you're on the go a lot! Shop this fashion backpack here!
