Amazon Picks, Beauty, Life

10 Amazon Products Under $10

Did You Know? Amazon began in the garage of founder Jeff Bezos’ home in Washington State. The site was launched on July 16 1995

( v i a )

Like I’ve mentioned before, the one complaint I have about Amazon is the browsing options.    You can’t really get on Amazon & browse through it like you would at a store or another website.  You have to know what you’re looking for in order for Amazon to be useful.  That’s why I like sharing what I buy.

Today’s list is 10 Under $10.

I tried to keep all of the items Prime eligible so you don’t end up paying for shipping, if you’re a Prime member that is – which at this stage in the game, how can you not be?

 10 Under 10 on Amazon

10 Products on Amazon Prime Under $10

1. Waterproof Phone case:

This is your friendly reminder to order this awesome, super affordable water proof phone case before Summer is in full swing.  It’s awesome for the pool/lake/ocean when you want to keep your snapchat & photos going strong – but also convenient to protect your phone from all water concerns.

2. Real Techniques Beauty Sponge:

I was using the original Beauty Blender for a while but I hated how dirty they got.   I attempted cleaning them but am never satisfied.  Spending $20 every time I wanted a new one seemed ridiculous, so I started using these beauty sponges instead & haven’t looked back.  I use them for a majority of my makeup & it honestly makes the application too easy.

3. Wet Brush:

This. Is. The. Shit.  Really, praise Jesus.  This brush goes through my thick, tangled mess with ZERO problems. Enough said.

4. Vacuum Wine Stopper:

If you didn’t know this vacuum wine stopper existed, and at such an affordable price, then I apologize. I was also missing out for a long time & I understand that unfortunate feeling.  Like all your best friends knew about a secret pill to keep you skinny & never told you.  I’m there.

5. LED String Lights:

I love fairy lights because they make the perfect relaxed ambiance.  I’m also a 7 year old girl inside.  I was using old Christmas lights during my morning Yoga to achieve the perfect lighting but since then have discovered these string lights & love them!  I hung them all over the place & get away with it because you can’t see the string until you turn them on 🙂

6. Feathers:

I recently discovered how AMAZING Amazon is for costume & craft supplies.  I went to Carnaval a few months ago & made costumes for Wafiq & I.  After searching costume shops & craft stores I compared all the prices with what I found on Amazon & it was incomparable.  I don’t think I’ll be in a costume or craft store again for a long time, the savings are that awesome. ( Body Jewels, Costume Glue, Yarn )

7. Collapsible Dog Bowls:

If you don’t already own these bowls for your doggies then you need to!  They’re so easy to transport – you’ll always have a dish available for water. My dog still acts like a 2 year old & inhales all her food in mili-seconds so I find it helps to collapse her bowl when she’s done & easily put it away. I’m trying to help her work through her binge eating habits.  (Also, THESE dog treats!)

8. Dog Bags:

I pick up ALL my dog’s droppings & if you have a dog you should too.  I get red with fury when I bring my dog on walks & there’s dog shit everywhere.  Even super large mounds of dog shit in the middle of a path, really?! Who the fuck does this?   It really pisses me off. And, I’ve done so well with my animal,  I’ve managed to teach her not to shit on walking paths – she goes on a little gander off the path to take her bathroom break, then I proceed to pick it up & throw it in the trash can. You also notice I say:  throw it in the trash can?  That doesn’t mean you put the shit in a bag, tie the top, & drop it on the ground for someone else to pick up – doesn’t work like that people.  I know I’m venting on behalf of other people & am definitely not alone.  The dog bags on Amazon come in huge packs so you will NOT run out & they’re super affordable! No excuses.  Pick up your dog shit!

9. Batteries:

You know how annoying it is when one of those small, round batteries dies?  Because you’ll never remember to pick up another one at the store & you definitely won’t remember what battery it is, RTJ-0078 or WJO-2833 or NWH-9340293, – not happening.  They’re typically cheaper on Amazon AND all you have to do is open the app on your phone, click, and order. Easy!

10. Toothpaste

I buy all my dental products on Amazon, and here’s a toothpaste for you.  I like Tom’s products.  I haven’t done research about them but they seem to work the best for me, rather than the typical Crest or Trident brands.  The world made me paranoid of chain products so I trick myself into feeling better by purchasing Tom’s.

If you get the Amazon App you can order everything on this list for under $100 and have it at your door in 2 days.  It’s a miracle, isn’t it?  What else do you guys buy on Amazon, it’s as if Amazon users are in a secret little club of all things easy!

I hope you’re all rounding out your April in the best way! I’m about to finally confront myself with the reality that this may be the last weekend I see 80 degree temperatures in awhile – at least while in Texas.  I’ve had a long talk with my dog about this, as we both hate it equally.  Soon, I think we’ll get our minds right & be able to handle our reality – let’s see.

Have a great day & be thoughtful!

My Love Affair… with Rap

Rap has saved my life a couple different times.

 My favorite music, rap

I happened upon Rap.  I used to make fun of an old boyfriend for listening to Eminem. (I still think he looked ridiculous –  shame on me, I know.)

For whatever reason he left this CD in my car. I turned on the radio one day and the rest is history. Full-on believer in the genre.

One of the reasons is the energy. The hustle. The go hard lyrics.  There’s no skipping through meadows, kissing on the second date, twirling across dance floors.  There’s hustle! Sex, work, parties! Struggle!

Rap tends to carry heavy material.  And even if what you’re going through isn’t as dramatic as the lyrics, whatever you’re carrying can feel dramatic in its own way. SO, adjust and relate.


Thank God, one of my friends was in the car listening to “I Got the Juice” by Meek Mill and after he finished rapping along to the lyrics (Obviously turnt) –>  He looked over and said “Doesn’t that song just make you want to “RAWWWR?!”

Finally.. I knew.. I was not alone.

I knew EXACTLY what he meant.  Certain songs can make you feel unstoppable, alive, and validated.

 My favorite music, rap

This Eminem album got me through what I thought was hell. I had it raging on the radio after work every single day.  The job I had at the time was the closest thing to a jail cell + abusive police officers that I can imagine.

This music helped me leave that feeling at work.

 My favorite music, rap

Rap is poetry.  When you listen to each word, then verse, and chorus.. You’ll see what I mean.   It’s sooooooo good & such an art! I’m completely obsessed you guys.  Once you find the song that speaks to you, you’ll be on board with me.

 My favorite music, rap

There’s another version of rap.  The more-raunchy-the-better style.

I happen to enjoy that music as well.  This is the real –> zero fucks given lifestyle. And I appreciate that.  Lyrics I hear on the radio shock me, how can they say this stuff?

How many people can say or do whatever they want… & not care?  They can rap about literally any single thing on their mind!

What a luxury.

I feel like everyone today, myself included, cares so much about what other people think or say about us.

We’re so careful.

These songs, are NOT careful.

Rap is a genre that discusses love, work, loss, money, and injury in a different way. Raw & intense. Full throttle. Not your average frills and flowers.

My favorite music, rap

 So it’s either Jazz or Fetty Wap.   Extreme, I know.

It all depends on the audience & mood. Jazz is great for company, or a relaxing night.  A way to turn off the mind.

Rap is great to work through your thoughts, give yourself the confidence you deserve, walk through the door with your shoulders back & head up!  Rawrrr amongst the lions!

My Favorite Music

Rap is most definitely not boring, let your mind go there and give it a try next time you’re sitting in traffic.

Currently loving Fetty Wap station on Pandora. But this Eminem album gives you all the feelings & so does Drake, because he’s easy to understand. LOL!

What music speaks to you?! I’m always on the prowl…

Have fun and hustle hard!!

I recommend..., Netflix


This is a good show. I have to help my Netflix addicts out there because it’s important we stick together. When you finish a series and start looking for a new one there’s a sense of panic weeding through the millions of options. Very overwhelming. Which is why I need to recommend good shows when I find them. Help get through the mess, lessen the stress. I also like talking about my favorite shows with you friends, makes me happy for some oddball reason 🙂


Arrow is adventurous and addicting. Fits the men and women in the family, if you’re forced to find something that suites both. Action and drama. You might have to hang in there a little through season 1, but it’s worth it in season 2.  The actors happen to be very attractive looking, which is always a plus in my book.  I don’t want to ruin anything by saying too much…

So, you’re welcome for helping you enjoy your weekend on the couch.

WARNING: Don’t watch before sleeping, you’ll have some crazy heroic dreams.
