I may only own one share of Amazon stock, but having it makes me feel slightly better about the percentage of my household income that I give to Jeff Bezos for making my life easier. Full disclosure: the links below are affiliate links, which means I might earn a small commission if you love something as much as my team, family and I do... but I only recommend what we actually use ourselves!
We have these mesh wifi router/extender thingies all over our property, and I love that it extends coverage to our guest house and gym.
Because you need Sharpies in your life (gold is best, after all). IYKYK.
I'm pumped to share some of my very favorite things for business, business travel, and a nice home office. I like nice things, but I'm also bougie on a budget (just because I can pay top dollar doesn't mean I want to!), so check out my finds (and please send me your faves, too!).
Yeah, another one. You've probably seen this thing on TikTok, and yeah, it's pretty great. I love that I can plunk it in my bag and it isn't hideous.
I bought a very similar (but sadly no longer available) office chair on Amazon several years ago and I love it.
In addition to your standard ring light, one of these little dudes is great to have on the go.
ICYMI, Seville is basically the hottest city in Europe (so pack your abanico). A personal fan is a necessity - the stroller fan linked here pulls double duty well on a desk while you #GSD.
I almost always have a scented candle burning in my office or kitchen, and these are a great option for affordability and a delicious scent.
There really is nothing better for keeping your coffee piping hot or ice cold as a Yeti. Believe me, I've tried alllllll the containers, and Yeti still wins hands down.
If you can't stand a messy to-do list, you need these clicky, ERASABLE PENS. No more restarting your list. Just erase it - and keep on movin'.
A standing desk is a must if you want to #GSD when you'd normally be nap-trapped in those early days. Plus, #SittingIsTheNewSmoking.
I love starting and ending my day with The Five-Minute Journal. I've even bought the Spanish version for my MIL.
One day, I'll design my own perfect planner, but for now I get it done with the High-Performance Planner.
”Life’s too short to stay stuck in a j.o.b. or lifestyle that doesn’t light you up, daily. It’s time to leave the 9-to-5 grind behind.”
I love smelling good, and while these days I rotate through several different scents, I've been wearing this bold, long-lasting one since college and I still love it.
Unpopular opinion: this book changed how I dated and helped me find my husband. Take what serves you and leave the rest. Personally, I found it empowering (DM me to find out why!).
I'm pumped to share some of my very favorite things. I like nice things, but I'm also bougie on a budget (just because I can pay top dollar doesn't mean I want to!), so check out my finds (and please send me your faves, too!).
My fancy NYC dermatologist recommended this serum to me ages ago, and I still use it daily. Love that it's clean, and it works.
I love good coffee, but I hate spending money on expensive pods that are also difficult to recycle. That's one of many reasons I love my Moka pot. It's a classic.
I treated myself to a 12-piece set of this gold cutlery when I bought my first house and after more than 6 years of daily use, they still look beautiful.
You really don't need fancy stuff to get good quality (most of the time). This stuff is affordable and it works (even gets off waterproof eye makeup).
A splurge that's worth it. This stuff REALLY repairs. Leaves your hair smooth and smelling amazing, like you just left the salon. The rest of the line is good, too, but these are musts.
One of these delicious protein bars is always in my purse for emergencies. Hangry is not a good look on me, y'all.
This face gel will make your face feel so SMOOTH. And because of the way it "peels" off, it's SO satisfying to use. Just don't overdo it - once a week is plenty.
I use these with my hacked unfancy bike and the Peloton app. They're cute, comfy and the recessed SPD cleat lets you walk around while off the bike.
Let me tell you, if you haven't tried bamboo sheets yet, you're not living. Go on, get yourself that king-sized bed and these sheets. You will not regret it.
My brother's longtime partner introduced me to this traditional Chinese liniment spray and it really is a lifesaver. Instant pain relief.
There really is no need for fancy baby monitors. Just get yourself a good ol' security camera, and you've got baby TV on your phone, wherever you are... for hundreds less than those fancy cams.
These little bamboo gasitas are SO SOFT. We use them for wiping noses, faces and hands, also sometimes for the bath or (when totally clean!) on eyes.
I'm pumped to share some of my family's very favorite things. I like nice things, but I'm also bougie on a budget (just because I can pay top dollar doesn't mean I want to!), so check out my finds (and please send me your faves, too!).
We've used this sound machine for Olivia since day one. She turns on the sound as part of our bedtime routine, and knows that when the "good morning light" comes on, mama is coming to get her to start the day.
For a long time I resisted getting an air fryer because I knew it was just a glorified convection oven... but dang, I love it! We use it CONSTANTLY for everything from french fries to croquetas to veggies and more.
I mostly use storebrand or homemade cleaning products, but this is one item I'd be happy to splurge on if it were available in Spain. Oh, Viva, how I miss you!
These sleep sacks are made in Spain and are sustainable, soft and roomy. I love how they last several seasons (we're using last summer's again this summer) and how cool they keep my bug in the Sevilla heat.
Every morning I fill up my gigantic gallon jug of water and plop a scoop or two of this electrolyte mix. I love the lemony taste and the fact that it has eliminated my afternoon headaches. Hubs likes it, too.
After a lot of research, Janet Lansbury's approach to parenting is the one that has resonated with me most. She's just practical, helpful and kind (her podcast is also fab).
A digital picture frame is a must-have, IMHO, for expats and digital nomads. My brother gifted this to my mom and we then gave the same to my in-laws so they never miss a pic.
Mustela is a Spanish brand that makes wonderful, clean products, and this cleansing cream is a lifesaver for irritated culitos.
We're big on easy meal prep in our family, and these salt-free blends are winners. Southwest Chipotle = yum.
We've tried a lot of wipes, and these are still the ones I feel best about using on our little buggie's culito - not to mention her hands, face, etc.
