My Favorite Amazon Product Finds Of The Year

I am an Amazon Fanatic, and I thought that I would start out this year, by sharing my favorite products that I bought last year.  In fact, I love some of these products so much that I bought them several times  or gave then as gifts, and the 2-day free shipping with Prime makes it even better.  So, here we go below.

IPOW X Clamp Car Mount

 

 

 

First up, is this cell phone holder.  Why you say?  Well, my hubby is a cement truck driver, and his buddies and himself absolutely love this cell phone holder that clamps to their windshield.  They say it keeps their hands free, it stays put, and it’s easy to install.  Best part is that it’s only $8.00, which is cheap enough for him to buy several or hand to his co-workers.

Instant Pot DUO60 6 Qt 7-in-1 Multi-Use Programmable Pressure Cooker

 

 

This Instant Pot has to be one of my all time favorite Amazon purchases.  I absolutely love it, and love giving it as a gift.  If you don’t know what a Instant Pot is, is simple, it’s a electric pressure cooker that takes your meats, stews, soups, and what ever else you can find on Pinterest to the next level.  And it does it in minutes, which to me is the best feature it has.   $

ComfiLife Gel-Enhanced Non-slip Coccyx Memory Foam Seat Cushion

 

 

Calling all people who have back, hip, or sit quite a bit at work. (That would be me)  This seat cushion makes my life a lot more comfy, and I bought another one to go in my car for longer trips.  What I like is that it’s not wimpy, it’s solid, but not to heavy, and it holds it’s shape.  I recently had hip surgery this past year, and this cushion became my best friend during recovery.  $30

Fancii Cool Mist Personal Mini Humidifier

 

 

 

This little mini humidifier is simply genius, and boy does it come in handy on these wintry, dry, weather days that we’ve been having lately.   As you can see, you use a water bottle turned upside down into the humidifier and you can place it anywhere because you can use batteries with it as well.  $25

Apple Watch Accessories

Fintie Apple Watch Cases, 6-Pack

 

I love my Apple watch, and it has a rose gold metal finish which is really pretty, but I wear very colorful scrubs to work, and the above case covers allow me to match my watch to my scrubs.  They are easy to put on, and they have lasted me and protected my watch for over a year now.  Super price for around $10.

 


 

All-New Fire HD 10 Tablet with Alexa Hands-Free, 10.1″ 1080p Full HD Display

 

 

Ok, this was a BIG one!  I knew that my hubby needed a new tablet, because his iPad was entirely too slow.  But here’s the thing, he doesn’t use all the apps that I use, he simply gets on Facebook, Pinterest, or checks his e-mail.  Other than that he is a avid reader and loves watching movies on his tablet either at home or on the go.  So, before I go any further, this is what the HD 10 has to offer:

  • Brilliant 10.1″ 1080p Full HD display (1920 x 1200), up to 1.8 GHZ quad-core processor, 2 GB RAM, and up to 10 hours of battery life
  • Our largest display, now with over 2 million pixels, stereo speakers, Dolby Audio, and dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi—perfect for watching Full HD video, playing games, reading magazines, and streaming content seamlessly
  • Use Alexa hands-free mode to pause videos, play music, open apps, show sports scores, display the weather, and more—just ask
  • 32 or 64 GB internal storage expandable by up to 256 GB (using the microSD slot). Watch downloaded videos anywhere with a Prime membership, Netflix plan, or Showtime subscription.
  • Enjoy millions of movies, TV shows, songs, Kindle eBooks, magazines, Android apps, and games—including Netflix, Facebook, HBO, Spotify, and more
  • Prime members get unlimited access to over a thousand books and magazines, millions of songs, and thousands of movies and TV episodes—at no additional cost
  • Get exclusive Amazon features, including ASAP, X-Ray, On Deck, Blue Shade, and FreeTime Parental Controls

 

So, the verdict is in…he absolutely loves this tablet!  He says it’s fast, the slim design is comfortable, and the HD clarity when watching movies is superb.  Also, because we are Prime members, as well as Netflix, he can watch all the movies he wants or read to his heart’s content.  I did buy extra storage,  a case cover, screen protector, and warranty for about $265 and this includes the tablet, which is a steal for all that he gets.

Bottom line is, that he’s told me about 10 times, how much he loves his tablet and Alexa is his new best friend.  That’s all I need to hear, and knew that I had made a great decision.

Well, that’s my Amazon product list finds for the past year, and yes they are random, but it just reflex what went on in my life over the year.  That’s really what I love about Amazon, is that you can pretty much find anything, discover new products, and the savings are always worth comparing before you decide to buy elsewhere.  Thanks for stopping by, and I look forward to sharing my future Amazon products.

 


I Love These Super Apple Watch Accessories

It’s been a year since I was gifted a Apple watch, and it’s honestly one of the best presents I’ve ever been gifted.  It keeps me organized, reminds me of all my appointments, and allows me to play my favorite music playlist wirelessly.

My watch came in a rose gold finish which is really pretty, but I love that you can get additional accessories to change the look of your watch, and here are my favorites below:

6 Color Fintie Apple Watch Cases

This is the first set of colored face plate case covers that I bought on Amazon.  They easily slip on and off, and cover the rose gold metal finish of my watch nicely.  Best part, this set is only $10 on Amazon.

 


I wear scrub uniforms in a variety of colors and prints, and it’s really cool that I can replace my iWatch band with any color or print design that I want.  Here are a few designs that I have tried.

Soft Silicone Replacement Band

 

 

These replacement bands are quick and easy to switch out, and you can also get prints and patterns like the one below to celebrate the different holiday seasons:

 

Christmas Print Leather iWatch Replacement Band

 

 


 

Apple iPhone & iWatch Charging Stand

 

 

This is probably my favorite iWatch accessory, because it keeps both my phone and watch safe, charged, and ready to go every morning.  I also like that I have a place to put my phone and play movies or do a live video without having to hold it in my hands.

All of these items budget friendly items are available on Amazon, and 2-Day Prime if your wanting to try them for yourself or give them for a gift in a hurry.  (Amazon Prime makes a really great gift by the way)!

My Dachshund pup, “Cinnaman”, has been a part of our family for 13 years now, and yes, she is a spoiled princess, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Doggie Stairs

 

 

Yep, my mom, who probably loves this dog just about as much as I do, bought these stairs so she can see what’s going on.  I’m tempted to get this Dog Booster Seat, because she loves going on rides and barking at everyone she sees.  LOL

 

Sharing a little puppy story:  The moment that I saw Cinnaman’s tiny, dramatic, adorable puppy face at the pet store, I knew that she was meant to be mine.  So, I went home that very same day, and asked my hubby and kids if they wanted to go to the pet place and see the new puppies.  Needless to say, when we got to Cinnaman’s cage, I pretended like I had never seen her before.

She was busy jumping on the bigger puppy that was in the cage with her, which was funny, because she was no bigger than the palm of my hand.  I knew by the look on my hubby’s face, that she was coming home with us.  🙂

 

Doxie Ice Cube Tray

 

 

Ok, this Doxie ice-cube tray is really cute, and useful, but would make the perfect budget friendly gift for around $10   I’m also loving this Dachshund cookie cutter and cake pan.

 

 

Dachshund Through The Snow Black Phone Case

 

 

I really liked all the Dachshund Through the Snow sweatshirt and t-shirts that I saw on sale last year, and this cell phone case available at e-Bay is even better.

 

Small Dog Travel Bag

 

 

My puppies absolutely love to travel, and this small travel bag has it all.  I really like the convenient water and food bowls that are provided, easily go on the zip down platform.  Of course, I wish those little Terriers were little dachshunds, but it’s still really cute, and it also comes in other solid colors.

 

Waterproof Back Seat Pet Cover

 

 

I have black cloth seats in my little Honda fit, and whenever I take my dogs out for a trip, their hair gets all over the place.  My really smart mom has this back seat car cover which helps the hair and anything else the dogs like to step in off the seats.  Hint: This would make a perfect gift for me.  🙂

 

 

Dachshund Fashion

 

Sterling Silver Dachshund Pendant Necklace

 

 

I love theme inspired jewelry and accessories, and this since were talking Dachshunds, this sterling silver pendant necklace from Amazon, it is the perfect Doxie lover gift.  I also love this sterling silver bracelet which is custom made and simply beautiful.  Super cute.

 

 

Snoozies Dachshund Slippers

 

 

Ok, these pink Doxie slippers are just too darn cute, and something that I would wear proudly, even outside for all my neighbors to enjoy!  (I admit, I do that once in a while).  They also have other Snoozies slippers that are really funny, including sushi, wine lovers, and martini.

 

These are just a few really precious, fun, and fabulous Dachshund gift ideas, and I know that there is a huge Doxie community out there, who enjoy sharing their love for their Weiner dogs. If you know of other really unique gift ideas, please let me know in the comments below, or simply share a pic of your little one.

Super Crutch Life Accessories

Unfortunately, I have had to use crutches several times throughout the years, and I don’t care how many times I’ve used them they are awkward, uncomfortable, and honestly quite painful at times.

So, recently I was told that I would have to use crutches for several weeks after an upcoming surgery, and I knew that I had to find a way to make my crutch life a little easier, so I decided to try some really cool accessories and here’s what I got.

Crutch Critter Pads  

I knew when I saw these that I had to have them, not only because there really cute, but my armpits would thank me.  I chose “Ajax” the horsey, and he’s super soft, nicely padded, easy to install.  These critters come in a variety of other animals, and even baseballs for all you sports fans out there.  Check them out at Amazon for only $25 below:

 

 

 Crutch Bag by Vive

The one thing that really stinks about being on crutches, is it’s almost impossible to carry your stuff around.  Especially, if you need to have someone take you to the store, where do you put your cell phone, wallet, house keys, and coupons?  Well, here’s the perfect solution that’s worked like a charm for me, the Vive crutch bag, for $15 @Amazon.

 

 

This little guy held my phone, wallet, coupons, keys, and glasses on a recent to trip to Kroger!  My mom dropped me off at front, and all my little necessities went right along with me to the electronic riding cart.  (I made my mom a nervous wreck driving that thing cart around the store)!  Loved every minute of it!  🙂

 

Crutch Hand Pads

 

Crutch Hand Pads @ Amazon $15

 

And finally, these super plush crutch hand pads have made a huge difference in my comfort when swinging myself around.  They come in black and purple, with an extra set of pads, and easy to install with its super strong velcro enclosure. These guys are available at Amazon for $15, and to me worth every penny.

I hope that I’ve shared some ways to make crutch life a little easier, because I know from personal experience that it isn’t an easy thing to go through.
