Top New Purchases From Amazon

Top New Purchases From Amazon

Ever since getting Amazon Prime (Thanks NUS Card), I have bought so much stuff from there because free next day, or sometimes same day, shipping regardless of the cost of the item is too much to say no to. I have so many wishlists on Amazon from books and comic books to kitchenware and Pop Vinyl’s that if I get a good invoice paid and want to treat myself I know exactly where to look. You can  pretty much buy anything you want on Amazon so I thought I’d give you all an insight into the latest things that I have been buying.

Lee Stafford Academy Iconic Hair Straighteners*

Can you believe that until now I’ve never owned a pair of straighteners before?! Yes my hair is naturally very straight but there are occassions when I get the little flick on my fringe or I lay wrong and my hair gets that wave so having a pair is such a great investment. Lee Stafford are one of the biggest names when it comes to hair straighteners and when I was offered the chance to try out their Academy Iconic Hair Straighteners I agreed straight away as who wouldn’t want to try the most advanced flat iron hair straighteners out there?! I am super impatient, especially when it comes to my hair, so thankfully the advanced technology with these mean they heat up super quickly and are ready to use in just 10 seconds. I always thought straighteners took minutes to heat up but not these. You can even choose the temperature depending on your hair type ranging from 80C to 230C so if your hair can’t handle as much heat yo can turn it down. The first time I used them I was so impressed as the nano silver titanium plates meant that they glide through my hair so easily and there’s no frizziness afterward. The Lee Stafford Academy Hair Straightener is guaranteed for 5 whole years’ from purchase against mechanical, electrical and manufacturing defects so it’s designed to last.

Amazon Fitbit

Black Mesh Strap for my Fitbit Charge 2

I love wearing my fitbit and pretty much wear it all day everyday bar in the shower, but sometimes I find the chunky black rubber strap is a bit too sporty looking for some outfits/ wears. The great thing about the new range of Fitbit’s is that you can change the straps meaning there’s so much more choice. I’ve loved mesh style straps for ages so as soon as my boyfriend got this one I knew I needed to own it as it’s comfortable, easy to adjust as it’s magnetic and it makes the Fitbit slightly less chunky and sit flusher to the wrist. And it was only about £13 which I think is great for a complete change in look.

Amazon Chopping Boards

Joseph Joseph Index Chopping Boards

As I’ve been harping on for ages I’m going through the process of updating a bunch of my kitchen purchases and chopping boards was something I desperately needed. I’ve loved the idea of the index chopping boards and having something seperate for meat/ fish/ vegetables etc but I always found them cheap looking. After settling on some other Joseph Joseph items for my kitchen I came across these chopping boards which are housed in a decent solid looking Graphite casing. The great thing about ordering stuff like this on Amazon is that these worked out about £10 cheaper than buying from retailers like Lakeland/ Selfridges. Now I’m all one for supporting physical stores if the prices are the same but to save some money I’ll take that any day.

Amazon Book

How Not to Travel the World: Adventures of a Disaster-Prone Backpacker Book

I am one of those people who buys about ten books for everyone which I read, I really need to stop purchasing them until I’ve made a huge dent in my bookcase, but I couldn’t not buy this book as it seemed like the perfect read for me. I absolutely love traveling and love reading travel blogs so it was a no-brainer really. The book was written by Lauren Juliff who blogs at Never Ending Footsteps and showcases her traveling mistakes and disasters when she opted to go traveling with no life experience, zero common sense, anxiety and a whole host of other things which don’t mix well with traveling. She hoped to heal herself from heartbreak but instead over a year was scammed, assaulted, lost teeth, swallowed a cockroach, was caught up in a tsunami and almost died. But going through it led her to her life today. I really want to read this book before I go to Hawaii incase there’s any tips and experiences I can take from it (or even just things not to do!)

Silicone Baking Tray Sheets

This is going to seem like such a boring purchase but I’d seen these Pyromats online and wanted to give them a try. I never cooked directly on a baking tray and usually use greaseproof paper (which means I tend to go through a lot) so I bought some of these silicone baking tray sheets which can be reused and due to their pyramid design help fat to drip off and not sit around the food. I don’t know about you but the number of times I’ve cooked things like bacon and sausages and had them sit in fat isn’t nice, so these pyromats are great for that. They’re dishwasher safe which is a massive bonus and make cooking so much easier.

Amazon Makeup Eraser

MakeUp Eraser Cloth

I had the makeup eraser in my Amazon wishlist for ages and a few weeks ago I just decided to buy it and see what all the fuss was about. The cloth is designed to take off all your makeup using just water and in all honesty, I didn’t believe its claims, so I needed to try it myself. You simply wet one side of the cloth which is used to take off all traces of makeup then you use the other side to gently exfoliate. I have to admit that I wear quite a lot of makeup and while the cloth didn’t remove all traces of makeup it did a really good job with most of it including liquid lipstick. While I don’t think I’d use this everyday to normally remove my makeup it’s great for travelling when you don’t want to take a liquid or are short on space.

    Ooh thanks for sharing the deets on the fitbit strap! I have a fitbit and the strap is lilac and it is SO bad for getting dirty, a black one would be much more practical for me! xxx

    I like the makeup eraser cloth, especially since I am terrible at washing my face before I go to bed, thanks for sharing looks like you found some great finds.

  12. March 21, 2017 / 12:12 pm

    You have the same fitbit as me. Once you start using it – you won’t stop looking at your score. xx

    I really need some new hair straighteners so I will look in to these. Although, I just burnt my ear with mine so we aren’t friends haha.

  22. March 22, 2017 / 3:21 pm

    I want to try hair straighteners but still hesitant. I hope I can try it first before I buy. I love the book you have, might check that online or when I visit the nearest book store.

  24. March 22, 2017 / 10:35 pm

    I’ve been wanting to get a fitbit, but my friend said her strap has broken twice on it! I need to tell her about the one you purchased- it looks more durable.
