Well, it’s the end of April and we are still sheltering in place. I must say, I am feeling a little stir crazy these days. While it’s not quite the same, I have been doing some online shopping these days. As convenient as this is, I do miss visiting the stores in person and actually seeing and touching things…does that sounds weird?
But alas, I don’t think I will be able to stroll the aisles of Anthropologie or any of my other favorites anytime soon.
Today for fun, I thought I would share my recent online purchases, just in case you miss shopping like I do and wanted a little online retail therapy!
I have to admit the bulk of my purchases have come from Amazon…man has this online powerhouse ever come through for us during this crisis! My order history has been a funny mix of food items, (like these sugar-free chocolate chips) household essentials and clothes for the family…mostly for me, but I did order Kallum a new Spring jacket that he loves!
Just because I'm organized like that, I will go through my recent online purchases by category.
I discovered the Amazon house brand ‘Daily Ritual” about a year ago now and have been impressed with my purchases so far. I just got this v-neck sweater in the mail this week, and it is going to the top of my rotation. It’s really soft and cozy and has a great fit.
I saw this cute graphic t-shirt on another lifestyle blogger and thought the price was right and the reviews were good so I ordered it, but it hasn’t arrived yet.
I don’t know about you but my yoga pants have never gotten so much use! My quarantine uniform mostly consists of something comfy on the bottom, and then a t-shirt/hoodie or sweatshirt combo on top. I am trying to remind myself to wear jeans every few days, they don’t lie to me like my yoga pants do!
Most days, comfort wins and I wanted to add a few more pairs of yoga/sweatpants to the mix. I have heard that these yoga pants feel just like the “Align” lululemon pants and the reviews are really good. I ordered them a few weeks ago and I am still waiting for them to arrive, so I will let you know what I think when I get them.
I also wanted a pair of thicker joggers for days when I want to fee a bit more cozy, so I ordered these.
The last pair of pants I ordered were these ones from Old Navy… I am calling these my “dressy sweatpants”.
A new pair of yoga pants, a new pair of fleecy jogger pants and a pair of “dressy” joggers…all of my bases are covered!
Pajamas & Slippers
I recently had to accept that it was time to retire my Minnetonka moccasin slippers, which I think I have had for a few years now. I ended up buying these ones and I love them.
They are just as cozy as my old ones, and so easy to slip on and off. I have already logged quite a few miles in these babies and they are holding up really well, I just have to keep them away from Ginger, our 10-month old puppy!
I wanted some new pajama pants, not because I needed them necessarily but because I am spending more time than usual in pajamas and I wanted to be wearing something that made me feel good! These were on sale at the Gap so I thought I would give them a try…they haven’t arrived yet, but fingers crossed they fit.
I was admiring this cute ruffle sleeve one-piece bathing suit on a few bloggers I follow…
Then I saw a similar style from the brand Cupshe on Amazon for a little less than half the price so I ordered it for our trip to Maui. It fit really well and I appreciated the lined bust area. This is definitely one of my new favorite bathing suits, and I look forward to wearing it this summer!
Bath & Beauty
A good friend of mine (hi Jen!) partnered with a good friend of hers (hi Karen!) and they developed an online beauty supply company called Next Level Beauty Supply. Their products are cruelty-free, vegan, non-toxic and just all around awesome. Jen was raving about the brand Voce back in the Fall, so I ordered some shampoo, conditioner and a volumizing mist.
I fell in love with these products right away. The shampoo and conditioner are perfect for my hair type (thin and fine) and the volumizing mist works wonders when I am styling my hair. I even brought it along with me to my last two salon appointments and asked my stylist to use it in my hair. This stuff smells so good, and a little goes a long way. I ordered the small 8 oz shampoo and conditioner and I just ran out a few weeks ago…I can’t get over how long it lasted! They are having a sale on the large size, which I just ordered, and I feel like it will last me at least a year!
My poor hands were in really bad shape a few weeks ago from all of the hand washing, but mostly the hand sanitizer I have been using so frequently. I ordered 2 bottles of the “Eczema Ease” hand lotion from Saje and it has been a lifesaver.
I have one bottle by the kitchen sink and the other on my desk. Not only has it helped my skin, but it smells sooooo good! If you click on this link, you get 10% off of your next Sage order, and I will then get 10% off of my next order…how’s that for a win win?
Well that sums up my recent adventures in online retail therapy! If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!
