17 Random Things I Decided to Shop For Over the Past Week

What to buy for staying home



Before the coronavirus pandemic forced much of the world to stay home more than ever for this period in time, I was busy shopping for sunglasses, travel clothes, blazers, new handbags, and spring shoes. While I haven't exactly torn up that wish list, I have pivoted it a bit for the time being. I work from home full-time all the time, but I'm certainly not used to being indoors this much, entertaining myself, having all of my meals, and exercising at home every day.

To make this time a little more comfortable, I've found a number of random things that I thought might be beneficial to you during this tumultuous period as well. Below, you'll find some of the clothes, beauty and wellness products, home items, exercise equipment, and even snacks that are brightening my days a little as of late. I hope they'll do the same for you.

A Diffuser

This diffuser is the chicest on the market. I love adding a combination of lavender and eucalyptus essential oils for ultimate relaxation.


With most Starbucks temporarily shuttered, I've been relying heavily on my frother, which improves my homemade lattes tenfold.

Yoga Mat

Since I have wood floors, a mat for my at-home workouts is a must.

Matcha Powder

I go back and forth between coffee lattes and matcha ones. This powder is great and so well-priced on Amazon.

Chic Sweats

Do we really need an explanation for these?

House Shoes

I hate going barefoot at home, so I bought myself a new pair of indoor shoes.

Face Mask

I'm hoping to have built up a nice glow after this stay-at-home period, and I've been dying to try this mask to help me achieve it.

Healthy Treats

This is one of the only candies I'll allow myself to eat, so I've been stocking up.


D.S. & Durga candles smell heavenly, and the color of the glass imparts the prettiest glow.

Weighted Blanket

Weighted blankets are said to help with anxiety, and I'll take any help I can get right now.

Foot Peel

Self-care includes taking care of your winter-weary feet.


Dry skin drinks this CBD oil right up, and it's also ingestible if you need a bit of a relaxation aid.

Jump Rope

Jumping rope is one of my favorite at-home workouts, and this smart rope is around the price of just three group fitness classes.


How about a new plant friend during this stressful time? I just got my first Bloomscape plant and was so impressed with the packaging and plant health.


Puzzles are selling out left and right, and they don't get prettier than this one.

Nail Polish

I plan on giving my at-home manicures a boost with a J. Hannah polish.

Cookie Sheet

Anyone else baking a lot more cookies than usual lately?
