*Image above taken in mini’s new closet featuring children’s velvet hangers — come in great colors! I have in pink for mini and blue for micro, but love that mint green too.
I’ve scattered many Amazon finds and recent purchases across the past few weeks (a lot of utility-oriented buys in this post), but here are a select few, in one digest…
+This large teak bin is currently in my cart as an attractive, non-plastic solution for stowing shower items beneath the bench in our master bathroom shower.
+I’m swapping out my disposable cotton makeup removing pads for these washable ones.
+Megan Stokes turned me onto this inexpensive set of facial sprays from Mario Badescu — she claims the smaller size bottles have a better applicator with a more even spray, and at $14 for a set of four, I’m not going to argue! Great for on-the-go/keeping in all your bags/etc. BTW, I still swear by their pimple drying treatment — $17 and the only thing I’ll use if I’m in a pinch with a big event a few days ahead.
+Everyone’s favorite bamboo cutlery for al fresco dining.
+Tiny handheld fan for outdoor festivities…
+My mom and I are both addicted to these ultra-slim hangers (seen above in the child’s size), which create a shocking amount of space in your closet. I love that the velvet holds straps and the like in place much better than acrylic/wood/wire versions.
+This $39 raincoat is such a steal! Love the colors, the striped interior, and the silhouette.
+A small thing, but I love this wire utility bin I snagged for dirty dish towels in the kitchen. We try to use as little paper towel as possible and instead launder these inexpensive towels, which we use for EVERYTHING — I swear we pull out at least three clean ones to use each day — regularly. Convenient to have a (non-fabric, i.e., not likely-to-mildew) basket on hand to stow the soiled ones downstairs between launderings.
+I know I’ve mentioned Mudpuppy puzzles a lot lately, but I couldn’t resist this NYC-themed one for my son! They have so many great styles that he’d love though, including one for The Hungry Caterpillar and another for Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site — both favorite books in these parts.
+Saw this blue and white floral maxi on Nan Philip and ordered immediately.
+I do not need any new mugs or insulated cups, but why do I want this lidded Yeti mug everyone else has?
P.S. Bathroom refresh ideas.
P.P.P.S. When was the last time you wandered?
