Seriously, if anyone wants to buy any of these for me, hit me up.
Between jobs and maintaining our homes and trying to have social lives, it all gets to be too much sometimes. We deserve a break from the crazy! And that break means...shopping!
Amazon is pretty much packed with products designed to remove stress from your life and make you feel like your best self. And I am here to show you those products. I know, I’m pretty much like, your savior right now.
These are all products that I've come across in my travels across the wide, wonderful website of Amazon. They are varied in their functions, but they have a couple things in common. First, they're super cute. Second, I want them all. I'm serious about buying these things for me, by the way. Hit me up if you want to get a girl a gift.

This Meal-Planning Pad
via: AmazonOK, this is like the perfect organized mean planning pad. I already do this every week (write down my meals, and then a shopping list based off of those meals), but I do it on plain old Post-Its. Which is unacceptable, especially now that I know this adorable pad exists. It's like this meal planning pad was made for me. And it's magnetic so you can stick it on your fridge!
via: AmazonThis is just one of the funniest products I've ever seen and I need it so badly. Writing these fine articles for you people on a laptop all day makes my wrists hurt and makes me hungry. This would solve both of those problems! Just kidding, I know I shouldn't eat this. But it looks so delicious! Do you think it comes with a real baguette?
These Toe Stretchers
Sure, they might make you look weird, but YogaToes stretches and separates your toes to keep your feet healthy and strong. If you suffer from bunions or other foot pain like I do, these are for you. My sister has them and she totally swears by them, so I figure it's time for me to get a pair of my own. You know...my birthday's coming up!
These Strappy Sandals
How cute are these sandals? More than 1,000 people attest to their comfort and cuteness (and affordability!), so you (and I!) should probably buy a pair. And they come in seven different colors, all of which are really nice and classy and cute. I'm between the green and the blue. Which ones should I get? Honestly, they're cheap enough that I should probably just buy both.
This Classic Backpack
via: AmazonThis classic backpack is the perfect size for a day trip, and it will never go out of style. It comes in a bunch of colors, and I cannot for the life of me decide which one I want, but I know I want one. When I think about owning this backpack, I think about how perfect it would be to carry all my stuff during a trip to Disneyland. It is totally the perfect size.
This Scented Candle
via: AmazonPeople absolutely rave about the subtle and naturally relaxing scent of this candle, and I have decided I just have to experience it for myself. Who can pass up the freshness of mint and basil? Certainly not me. I feel like this candle will transport me to a beautiful, breezy spring day in the English countryside, and I have never even been to the English countryside.
via: AmazonYou are going to notice a pattern in this list. I have a thing for two animals: elephants and bears. I have reasons and they are personal. This little wooden elephant phone and pen holder is retro and adorable, and I just want it. I think it will look perfect at the desk I have that I don't actually work at because I prefer to sit on my couch with my puppy instead.
via: AmazonAs the owner of one oversized plaid scarf, I am confident in saying that one is not enough. It is one of the best things I own, and I want another one. I use it not just as a scarf, but as a blanket and a pillow as well. It is amazing to bring on a plane because it will keep you warm and comfortable in literally all of the ways. If I had two of these things, I would be unstoppable.
This Cute Bear Plate
via: AmazonHere is where we get into the bear stuff. It's just such a cute plate!! I'm sort of in love with this illustration style. It reminds me of a children's book I used to read when I was little. I am, however, not sure exactly what children's book that is. Do you recognize this illustration style? Do you also want to be a grown-up eating off a plate with a cartoon bear on it?
This Slow Cooker
via: AmazonI don't own a slow cooker, but I think it is finally time. I see so many good recipes that are dependent on the thing, and it would be so nice to be able to set the ingredients and forget it until it's magically cooked and ready for dinner right at dinner time. It's not just dinner that you can make in a slow cooker. I'm talking dessert! Breakfast! The possibilities are endless.
This Bench Scraper
via: AmazonOne of my biggest pet peeves about chopping veggies or other ingredients for a meal is how annoying it is to then transfer them from the cutting board to the cooking receptacle. This will all be made much easier once I have a bench scraper. Seriously, pretty much any time I'm cooking, I think, "Man, this would be so much better if I had a bench scraper."
via: AmazonI usually make popcorn on the stove in a pot with oil, but that usually results in way more popcorn than I could ever eat in one sitting (and a really oily pot that I then have to clean but usually don't until like, two days later). It's also like, kind of a lot of work. This microwave popcorn maker doesn't even require oil, and it requires so little effort it's insane.
These Sprout Bookmarks
via: AmazonHow adorable are these little sprout bookmarks? They can keep your place on the top of the page or right at the very line you left off on. I really like the idea of bookmarks, but I never quite commit to one kind. With a pack of these, I feel like they will become my bookmarks. I feel like they would also make me want to read more!
These Perfect Pens
via: AmazonReal story: I bought one of these pens and I fell in love with it so hard. It's the smoothest pen I've ever used. It's not dainty. It's got a thick ink stream. It's amazing. And then less than a week after I bought it, someone who shall remain unnamed borrowed it and lost it. I think I just need to buy a whole pack to ensure I always have one on me because this might be my favorite pen of all time.
This Slate Cheese Board
via: AmazonI like to put together a nice cheese board, OK? And I think I need a fancy slate board that comes with a piece of chalk so I can properly label each cheese for my lovely and important guests. Plus, I need enough area for my grapes and nuts and dried fruits and jams and honey. Oh yeah. I take my cheese plates very seriously.
This Striped Tote Bag
via: AmazonI just think this is a really cute bag that would be perfect for when I lug this laptop to a café to write these articles for you fine folks! Don't you think it's perfect? It gives off a vibe that says, "I am an adult, and I have a job, and I have to carry around some very important items. But I make sure to do it in style."
This Slim Storage Cart
via: AmazonI flipped out about this storage cart when I first saw it. I think it's one of the most genius inventions ever. We all have an odd bit of space that we don't really use in our kitchens, between the oven and the fridge or the counter, and we could all use more storage. That's where this bad boy comes in. Whoever invented this deserves the Nobel Prize.
This Hot and Cold Tumbler
via: AmazonI have heard that Yetis are almost too good at keeping your drinks hot or cold, and I want to test that. I need a tumbler that will keep my tea scorching in the cold winter months or my water icy throughout the whole day in the sweltering summer heat. And I just love this deep red color, not to mention the cup bottom that fits right in your car's cup holder.
This Cold Face Mask
via: AmazonI am prone to headaches, and allergies, and sinus issues (it's really fun to be me), and I think if I could just lie down for a while with an icy face mask on, it would do wonders for my head. My whole head. Keep it in the freezer and drag it out for those painful moments. But thank goodness it has eye holes. I need to be able to watch Netflix while taking care of my headache.
This Butter Keeper
via: AmazonCold butter is necessary if you are making pie crust, but it is a total pain the butt when you are trying to spread it on a lovely piece of toast for breakfast. This butter keeper allows you to keep butter at room temperature. I don't know how it works, but it's cute and I want one for my kitchen. The yellow one, to be specific.
People absolutely love the dramatic power of the Baby Foot Peel. About a week after one session of soaking your feet in the solution bags, dead skin will start falling off of your feet in chunks like you wouldn’t believe. I want that so bad. It's almost like when you were little and would cover your fingers in glue and peel it off, but this time, it will be your skin.
These Food Canisters
via: AmazonI have been searching for the perfect canisters for flour, sugar, and tea for years now. Years. That is not an exaggeration. I want canisters that are cute but functional and have a mouth wide enough to be able to scoop out a cup of flour if I need it. I think these are those canisters. I think I found them. No joke, I'm getting emotional right now.
via: AmazonNot only is this the perfect white elephant gift because it is an actual white elephant, but I genuinely think it is super adorable (here I go with the elephants again), and I own a lot of rings, so I would get a lot of use out of it. Elephants are just very smart and cute and I think many of the objects I own should be shaped like them.
These Silicone Baking Mats
The worst part about cooking or baking is the cleanup. Silicone baking mats make cleanup wildly easy. Forget about soaking and scraping your pans ever again. They make sure your food slides right off.The prospect of cleaning a cookie sheet is sometimes enough to stop me from cooking or baking, to begin with. These amazing baking sheets would alleviate that problem in an instant.
These Reusable Grocery Bags
via: AmazonI don't know why, but I just think these mesh grocery bags are really cute. They would be perfect to bring to the grocery store or the beach or even to use as a purse every now and then. And they will take up way less room than those big plastic bags I have roaming around the trunk of my car. I totally love the colors they come in, too.
These Felt-Tip Pens
via: AmazonPaper Mate felt-tip pens are total classics. They are easy to write with, and they are totally perfect for bullet journaling, which I do. Bullet journaling has been a way for me to basically reinvent the daily planner in a way that totally works for me. I do love making it colorful and eye-catching too (when I have the time), and these colors are totally cool.
via: AmazonI mean, who doesn't want a hammock chair? Come on. This is a no-brainer. This thing looks perfect and comfy, an ideal relaxation bubble for those quiet moments. I would hang it inside or outside (preferably outside, in a perfect garden, in my own private backyard...but this does not exist, yet). It would truly be a place for me to relax and reflect on the world around me.
This Full Body Pillow
via: AmazonSure, this pillow is mostly made for pregnant women, which I could be maybe someday way far in the future like wayyyyy far in the future, but is it a crime to just want one of these body pillows now? I have a fiancé, but he isn't always around to cuddle, and plus, he's not this soft. This just looks like the most comfortable thing.
via: AmazonWhen I move to a place with a bigger kitchen, I'm going to get serious about my pizza dough and bread-making. And for that, I will need a legit pizza stone. Homemade pizza is one of the most fun dishes to make because it's endlessly customizable. The problem is getting that crust just right without the proper tools. With a pizza stone, I would make pizza every day, and that is my promise.
These Reusable Silicone Straws
via: AmazonI have a bunch of the stainless steel ones, but I miss being able to play with and chew on my straws. So, I need these soft and squishy silicone straws stat. Plus, I totally love these rainbow colors. However, if I am being totally honest, I would one hundred percent choose the yellow and green ones all day every day because those are my favorite colors.
These Cooking Chopsticks
via: AmazonThese giant chopsticks are one of the most versatile, useful cooking tools out there. I totally need a pair. Every professional (or wannabe professional) chef has one. Whether you are flipping meat, scrambling eggs, or stirring noodles, these are super effective and easy to use. If I want to become a master in the kitchen, which I definitely do, a pair of cooking chopsticks are basically an essential tool.
