My Favorite Amazon Finds of 2019

December 12, 2019

Hi! My name is Katie and I am addicted to shopping on Amazon. In 2019 I pretty much doubled the number of orders I placed on Amazon. I blame having two small kids, and not wanting to take them into actual stores. I have found some really great things this year for Parker, Hadley, and myself. I wanted to pass along all my favorites to help you this holiday season!

For Me:

Upopby Women’s Vintage Padded Push up One Piece Swimsuits Tummy Control Bathing Suits Plus Size Swimwear This swimsuit is perfect and contains everything inside. Each week I go to swimming lessons with both kids and this is my uniform. It comes in multiple colors, but I love this green!

Bikini Swimsuit for Women High Waisted Swimsuits Tummy Control Two Piece Tankini Ruffled Top with Swim Bottom Bathing Suits Purchasing this swimsuit made me a little nervous. I was only 2 and a half months postpartum and here I was buying a two-piece. This swimsuit hides when needed, but it still made me confident to wear it!

VintageClothing Women’s Floral Maxi Dresses Boho Button Up Split Beach Party Dress This was one of my most favorite purchases of 2019! This dress is amazing and I HIGHLY recommend it. It’s so flowy, comfortable, and works great for so many occasions. It comes in so many different colors, patterns, and long sleeves.

JOYEBUY Womens UPF50 Foldable Summer Straw Hat Wide Brim Fedora Sun Beach hat I love wearing hats! This was a perfect hat for the summer. I wear my glasses constantly so sunglasses are out for me. Hats are my ‘go-to’ in the summer because of this.

ECOWISH Womens Boho Irregular Long Sleeve Wrap Kimono Cardigans Casual Coverup Coat Tops Outwear This cardigan is one of the most comfortable things ever. The color of this makes my heart happy. It is perfect to add to any outfit in any season!

BLACKMYTH Women Summer Funny Print Short Sleeve Top Tee Graphic Cute T-Shirt This shirt was way out of my comfort zone when I purchased it. Details on the shirt that draws attention to my chest and belly. I wore it and rocked it, also can’t wait to wear it again!

CHARTOU Womens Chic Elastic High Waisted A Line Leopard Print Pleated Shirring Midi-Long Skirt Recently I have become a huge fan of animal print. Most of my closet is starting to fill up with it. I had been looking for a new midi skirt and this was just right!

Amazon Brand – Daily Ritual Women’s Seamed Front, 2-Pocket Ponte Knit Legging I wear leggings almost every day, they are apart of my ‘momiform.’ The one downside to leggings is they don’t have pockets. I have found my answer, and it’s these leggings. They have two back pockets and look a little dressier than your typical ones.

NSQTBA Womens Leopard Print Pullover Oversized Crew Neck Casual Knitted Sweater Tops Oversized sweaters in the winter are my favorite. Again the animal print is coming up everywhere lately. Also, I wanted to match my mini-me, how cute is she!

Mothers Day Mama Llama Alpaca – PopSockets Grip I cannot use my phone now without a pop socket, so of course I had to get a fun one! Once I saw this one with llamas, I had to get it!

Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer & Volumizer Hot Air Brush, Black Most of the time I am running late and don’t have time to shower, dry my hair, and style it. I had seen several bloggers post about this, and knew I had to try it for myself. I was a believer after my first use, and only had to use one product!

For Parker:

Do A Dot Art! Markers Brilliant Washable 6 pack, The Original Dot Marker I am always looking for activities to do with Parker that don’t involve television. These dotters will keep him busy for a good 10-15 minutes. I also like to go on Pinterest to print off seasonal pages for him to dot.

Learning Resources Jumbo Tweezers, Sorting & Counting, Toddler Fine Motor Skill Development, Set Of 12 To find activities for Parker, I follow dayswithgrey. Each Sunday night she prepares you with an activity to do with your toddler Monday morning. She suggested getting jumbo tweezer to work on fine motor skills along with hand-eye coordination.

Frenchi Furniture Magazine Table Finish When we switched Parker to his new room I wasn’t sure what to do with all his books currently on wall shelves. We also realized he was going to need an end table. This was a perfect combination of both.

HatHatch Baby Rest Sound Machine, Night Light and Time-to-Rise This is hands down the best sound machine we have used! You can control it with your phone, change the sound as well as the color being projected. It will also help that early toddler riser with their ‘time to rise’ feature. You can set a specific time for the morning, and when it’s that time the light turns green. Letting the child know it’s okay for them to get up, make noise, or leave the room if they are old enough.

KIDAMI 11 Pieces Kitchen Pretend Toys, Stainless Steel Cookware Playset, Varieties of Pots Pans, Kids Cooking Utensils for Kids My husband’s aunt so graciously gave us her old play kitchen. We needed to stock it with utensils and food.

KidKraft Tasty Treats Play Food Set (115 Pieces)Let me tell you, this food set comes with everything! I was amazed by what all was included.

For Hadley:

Mary Meyer WubbaNub Infant Pacifier ~ Lily Llama How cute is the llama WubbaNub?! I saw it and had to have it for Little Miss! Also, look how small she was!

Love To Dream Swaddle UP 50/50 Transition Bag This is one of the best swaddles we have ever used! Hadley hated having her arms down when she slept and would pull them out of her swaddle. A friend suggested this one, so I thought ‘why not, let’s try it.’ It was perfect. Her hands are at her face while she sleeps, and when she started to roll, we could unzip and remove the wings.

JJ Cole Agility Stretch Carrier, Black, Large I love wrap carriers, but can never put them on myself. They are so complicated, and always had to have CJ help me. My friend Kayla from, EverydayGlamGuide, mentioned this product on her stories. It is a wrap, but you put it on like a shirt! Now I can wear it without any assistance to put it on.


SONGMICS Picnic Blanket 77 x 59 Inches Gray In the summertime going from park to park it’s always nice to have a blanket. I found this picnic blanket that is easily fold and to keep in my car. On the plus side, it is very comfortable!

Wilton Perfect Results Premium Non-Stick 9-Inch Fluted Tube Pan Growing up my mom would always make Monkey Bread for family brunches. Recently I borrowed her pan to make it myself and realized how easy it was to make. I decided I needed my own pan!

Are you an Amazon addict like myself? Let me know in the comments your favorite purchase from 2019!
