Despite its massive reach, I somehow always find myself turning to Amazon when I want to find something that feels lesser-known and slightly unique. Perhaps it's due to the fact that the sheer amount of items on it makes the very act of shopping on Amazon a bit of a treasure hunt, but whatever the case, one thing's for certain: When I find something I like, I want to tell everyone about it.
The past few months, I've unearthed a handful of fashion and beauty items that have not only enhanced my life but made me return for more. There are the usual summer suspects: linen separates, comfortable sandals, fresh beauty buys, and so on. But there are also a few hidden gems you'll have to scroll down to discover for yourself. Ahead, see which 18 things I recently bought that I'd 1000% buy again (and that I think you should buy, too).
'Tis the season for cute straw bags and even cuter places to carry them to (aka picnics in the countryside). If you're hoping to snag one that doesn't look like everyone else's, head to Amazon to scour their selection of artisanal satchels, like the simple-yet-stylish one above.
It seems like everyone got the memo: headbands are back. Right now, a padded version feels especially relevant, and I love the soft pink colorway on this one; it pairs well with a little white dress and sandals.
I'm not sure why I waited this long to use face serums, but for one reason or another, I chose this one to be my first—and I'm so pleased with my decision. It brightens my face, and reduces dark spots and redness.
I'm a bit of a hoarder when it comes to designer sunglasses, but every year when summer rolls around, I try to find a pair of "throwaway sunglasses" I won't be devastated if I accidentally jump in the ocean wearing. In other words, cheap sunnies that still look cute.
