Random Amazon Finds I Can't Live Without

Random Amazon finds I can't live without / mStarr design

We all have a love/hate relationship with Amazon right? But there’s no denying the expansive offerings and quick shipping {I’m a Prime member} make it convenient. Between social media marketing, recommendations from others, and searching for something based on our needs, I’ve discovered plenty of seemingly random items and many of them I truly can’t live without now!

I’ve rounded up my favorites below…

Random Amazon finds I can't live without / mStarr design

01 / Smells be gone! I was looking for something to help reduce smells in the kitchen from cooking and an AC-triggered musty smell that’s occasionally in the living room on very hot days. I stumbled upon this Hamilton Beach TrueAir Odor Eliminator and Bill and I noticed a difference the very first day. PS. It comes with an optional scent cartridge {we don’t use it}.

02 / It’s iced latte season and I remain obsessed with our Breville Barista Espresso Machine. But after finding a travel mug for my hot lattes this past winter, I realized I didn’t have a good one for cold drinks! While it’s not fully insulated, this silicone-wrapped glass mug keeps my coffee cold for awhile and bonus: it’s super cute!

03 / We have central AC {thankful for this!} but our kitchen is always hotter than the rest of the house and bread tends to get moldy more quickly. I found this simple white bread box and am happy so far! It fits a lot but doesn’t take up a ton of space, has a silicone gasket to keep everything fresh, and the metal handle is a nice touch.

04 / We are big fans of our Caraway cookware but because they’re oven safe, the lids can get pretty hot. These lid covers are easy to put on/take off and do the trick.

05 / I’ve been swapping out a lot of our old metal cooking utensils and replacing them with more eco-friendly wood versions. This set comes with a bunch of options and looks great on our counters!

06 / I would pay someone to give me a scalp massage every day if I could. It’s one of my greatest joys. This scalp massager shampoo brush isn’t quite the same but it does feel good and gets my shampoo extra sudsy!

07 / We had a similar dish rack that got kinda gross after a couple years. I didn’t feel like ordering it again from Crate & Barrel and had to place an Amazon order so found this one and it’s been great! I kinda wish it had a wood accent on the handles but it’s sleek enough to look good on the counters everyday.

08 / I shared these adhesive nose strips on Instastories. For masks that either don’t have built-in metal nose pieces or you want a little extra protection for indoor use, these are great. They’re not foolproof and may not adhere to certain masks as well as others but overall I recommend! Check out some of my favorite masks in this post!

09 / This digital angle ruler has come in handy while installing the shiplap in our bedroom as part of the #mstarrxohidesign makeover project {more to come on that}!

10 / I use these terry cloth headbands while washing my face. They’re a must for keeping soap etc. out of your hair!

11 / We are long overdue for a new washer + dryer, and our front-loading washing machine gets moldy even after just one wash. These affresh cleaning tablets are septic-safe and freshen up the inside of your washer.

12 / Max has a combo picnic/water table and the bins that came with it started breaking. I found these colorful bins to replace them {they also are great for gathering small outdoor items}.

13 / Forever a favorite, the Ice Roller is a must-have for relaxation/cooling down/headaches/skincare. Keep it in the freezer and use whenever you need a pick-me-up.

14 / Julia Marcum {of Chris Loves Julia fame} recommended sweat wristbands when washing your face. I sometimes forget to put them on and am immediately reminded of how well they work for not getting your shirt soaking wet!
