Over the past few months of quarantine, I’ve been doing some shopping. After moving into my first apartment in May (great timing, I know) I had to look for some new ways to organize and decorate. I’ve explored some new beauty products and clothes. I even broke down and switched to wireless headphones. Now that I’ve found all of these incredible deals and tried them out, I’m sharing my discoveries with some ladies who might appreciate them as much as I do. In no particular order, here are some of my Amazon finds from quarantine: 


#1: Makeup/Jewelry Organizer - $32.99

If you’re as into makeup as I am, you probably have way too many products and not enough space. My collection has been slowly growing over the past year and a half and when I moved I knew it was time for me to figure out a better organization system. What I like about this specific item is that it lets you see all of your products to find them and to display them nicely as well. It’s good quality and it comes in several different colors (although they’re still all transparent) and I love my pink one.


#2: 2 Pack of High Waisted Leggings (with Pockets!) - $28.99

These are easily the nicest leggings I’ve ever owned and I was so shocked by how much I love them. I was nervous at first because I wasn’t able to try them on and I’m always skeptical of buying clothes off of Amazon or anywhere online when I don’t know the brand. However, these surpassed my expectations by far. The material is amazing, super soft, and comfy. They’re the perfect length for me and even though leggings are often not very flattering on me (I'm built like a twig) these look so good! The pockets are big enough that I could fit a Gatorade in one and my phone, headphones, and keys in the other. It probably stretched them out a little bit, but it worked. Also, these come in packs of 2 or 3 for less than $15 per pair! It’s an incredible deal and whether you’re looking for leggings to work out or lounge around, these are perfect. 


#3: Essence Lash Princess Waterproof Mascara - $4.99

Link: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07TMKPXJ7/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 

I’ve tried several different waterproof and regular mascaras and this one steals the show. Since I started using it, I haven’t had trouble with clumping or smudging as I have with so many other brands. It gives the length and volume that I enjoyed with Glossier’s Lash Slick without being so expensive and this stuff will last you quite a while. 


#4: TOZO T6 Bluetooth Headphones - $39.99

Link: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07RGZ5NKS/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1 

I listen to music constantly and I reached a point where I was finally going to break down and invest in Airpods when a friend told me about these. For $110 to $90 less, the sound is amazing, the charge lasts a very long time, and when you do have to charge them it happens so fast. Today mine died a little after 5 pm after I used them almost all day and they were charged before 6 pm. If you like the classic AirPod white, you can choose that, or you can get them in black or pink. If you don’t want to drop $150 on headphones, definitely give these a shot. They won’t disappoint.


#5: RieKet Distressed Boyfriend Jeans - $25.98

Link: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01N07JMYR/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o05_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1 

If you like the mom jean look, the ripped jean look, or both, these are the jeans for you. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m generally skeptical of buying clothes from Amazon, but these are so worth it! The material is real, high-quality denim. They were just the right amount of oversized without looking too big. The length was perfect for me to roll them up as I like to do with this style. These are pretty much destroyed but I think it adds so much character and gives you a chance to play with accessorizing. For example, I wear these often with fishnet tights underneath so that they show through the gaping holes. These are also low-rise so my tights show a little at the top and I’ll either tie a t-shirt to be shorter or wear a crop top with it. This is how I wear them, but there are a million different ways to style these and you get great quality for a low price.


#6: Bathtub Overflow Drain Cover - $5.99

Link: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00314WHW6/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I take bubble baths all the time to relax and without this cover, the water never seemed to get high enough for me. This covers the overflow drain and attaches to the wall of the tub with suction cups. There’s a hole on the top so that water can still get to the drain if it reaches a certain point. Now of course you still have to watch when you fill it up and keep in mind that when you get in it will rise, but thankfully I have yet to make my tub overflow. As long as you pay attention, this product is 10/10.


#7: Hinged Nose Rings - $9.99

Link: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07RYLJR8K/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

If you have your nose pierced, you’ve probably had to deal with nose rings that you bend and shape to get in and out of your piercing. They get bent so much that they aren’t circular anymore. With these, you pop it in and lock it in place so that it's a complete circle and there is no bending involved. There’s also no opening for them to get caught on anything (yes, this has happened to me multiple times). They won’t get out of shape and you’ll be able to keep them for a lot longer. They also come in several different gauge sizes and colors!
