A monthly report of my favorite Amazon purchases. This month we are featuring Valentine's Day items and a few other fun favorites!
Happy Friday! I'm back again for my 2nd edition of Friday Amazon Favorites. You all seemed to like it a few weeks ago, so I'm keeping it going. Your favorite item was the purse organizer! I have to say, I am still loving my organizer. It has kept me sane when trying to find things in my large purse!

I’m an Amazon affiliate so any qualifying purchase you make from my links will earn me a small commission. But, your price is NO different than if you found the item yourself. I promise!
This week, I have a few fun Valentine's themed items I think you'll like! There is still time to snatch these and have them arrive before the 14th. But, you'll have to act quickly. I'm also telling you about my new favorite hair dryer and Simon's new pair of shoes.
Heart Baseball Tee
For every holiday party at my kids' school, I like to wear a themed shirt to go along with it. I searched a while before deciding on this heart baseball tee. The reviews mentioned it's not tight fitting (I hate tight fitting shirts) and to maybe size down one. I stuck with my usual small and it is pretty loose. Fits more like a medium, but I love it.
In the photo below, you'll see I'm wearing the heart baseball tee with my favorite joggers. I bought these on Amazon last fall and have worn them multiple times a week ever since. They are soft and SO comfy! I only have them in black, but soon I'm going to order the light gray to run around in this spring.
Ok, so I shamelessly bought 5 sets of heart earrings and picked my favorite then returned the others. Amazon makes returning products so easy! I decided to take photos of all of them (except these that I didn't even try on) so you can choose for yourself. They are all a great price, between $7 to $13.
I really liked these white heart stud earrings, but sometimes I think white next to my face makes me more pale looking. These really didn't do that, but I couldn't help think it. Plus, it was so hard to choose one set, that this thought helped me narrow it down at least. I think you'd love these. The size is super cute. Not too small, and big enough to make a statement without being too big.
These heart drop earrings are the PRETTIEST! They are great quality and UNDER $10. I almost kept them, but my budget was telling me to choose JUST ONE pair. This pair was almost the winner. Honestly, I think I forced myself to figure out a reason to not keep them, too. And, I can't even remember what that reason was! They looked GREAT with my jean jacket. Ok, now I want to go buy them back.
You might love these next earrings because they are super light. These acrylic heart earrings were fun to try on, but I wanted something that stood out a little more. They definitely were the right price at $7, but not exactly what I was looking for in style. If I was planning on wearing my hair back, then they're great. But, you couldn't see them with my hair down. It appears the red may no longer be available, but they have an assortment of other candy colors.
Now for the WINNER! These rhinestone heart earrings are SO FUN! I picked them because they made the biggest statement yet don't look too gaudy. I'm somewhat of a private person (trust me, taking photos for these posts is almost unbearable for me!) so I do not love having much attention on myself. But, I do think it's fun to add a little pizzazz here and there, and these earrings are the perfect amount of that. They're also light and don't weight down my ears. They're pretty, good quality, and the right price at just UNDER $10!
PS - I'm totally wearing them on the opposite ears than the photos on Amazon, but that's the way I preferred them on me.
Now that you saw all of the earrings, which pair would YOU choose?? I'm so curious if you would have made the same or different decision!
Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer
I finally caved and bought this hair dryer about a month ago. I've seen them all over social media during the last year, promising quickly dried hair with smooth results. There is a Dyson version (maybe the original?) that is super expensive, but this cheaper Revlon model is definitely worth the purchase! Drying my hair is so much easier and faster, and the results give me more volume and shine. I recently saw this traveling case for it with great reviews. We have some trips coming up that I might consider purchasing it! I'm also curious about this L'oreal blow dry cream. My hair stylist recently told me that Aveda makes L'oreal products... so, hmmmmm.
Metal Twin Bed Frames
We've been doing a lot of projects on our house in the recent months. Last July, we re-did our boys' bedroom (they share, for now). We took down the bunk bed that Ben built years ago and replaced it with two twin beds. I found the frames on Amazon and LOVE them still to this day! It's on my mind, because last week we re-arranged their rooms again because we bought new carpet. Soon, Judah will move into his own room and my plan is to buy the queen size version of this frame for his new room because I like it that much! The bedding is from Amazon, too, but looks like no longer available.
Simon's Under Armour Shoes
I'm constantly buying my kids new shoes. It's not because the shoes are cheap, but because they are always outside tearing them up! I can't complain, though. I'd much rather they have dirty shoes showing they are out playing then super clean shoes showing they only stay inside playing video games. But, it's tough to find time to take them to the store to buy shoes. So, now I just measure their feet with a ruler and buy a few pair on Amazon for them to try on. They get to pick from the ones I order. This way, they still feel like they are choosing their shoes, but we're not taking FOREVER in the store trying on a crazy amount of shoes. And, I only order ones in our price range -- they can't grab those $100 pair off the shelf and beg for them now. Perfect!
Again, Amazon makes it SUPER EASY to return almost everything, so I order multiple pairs of shoes hassle free! Just make sure you see the note "free returns" when you purchase. This has made my shoe buying experience for my kids MUCH MORE ENJOYABLE. Simon recently "chose" this pair of Under Armour shoes.
That's it for this month! I have more to share, like this favorite sweater and these favorite leggings, but the photos will need to wait for another time. I'm tired and I don't want to overwhelm you with ALL of my favorites in one post! 😉
