This month has a clear theme, which is black. I didn't buy a ton this month, but I still have a few things that I ordered on Amazon this month that I've been using in our everyday life and wanted to share. You can find the previous months here. The items from my Amazon must haves this month mostly fall into the home goods category. We have been finishing up a few projects around the house, so I have been adding some detailed touches.
Things I ordered on Amazon in August.
AUGUST AMAZON MUST HAVES
ITALIAN ESPRESSO POT $37
Otherwise known as a Moka Pot. You can find recipes that I have created using this pot here and here. Now that it is about to be the fall season, I will be using this all the time in my house! Joel doesn't drink coffee, so we haven't invested in an espresso machine. While I plan to one day, this little pot is everything that I needed to make homemade espresso for one.
CANDLE CARE SET $15
I've been learning to take my candle care seriously, so I bought a kit for just that. In this kit, you have a wick trimmer, a dipper that allows you to put the flame out without smoke, and a candle snuffer which is another way to put out a flame. It helps you prolong the life of your candles when you take the time to care for them properly!
MODERN EXTERIOR DOOR HANDLE $37
Now that Joel and I have finally finished painting the back exterior of our home, I bought modern door handles to replace the older ones that we had. The previous ones were black, but not square. I wanted a truly modern look to our exterior.
I bought a new soundbar for our backyard movie night setup. We were previously using a large amp from Joel's music gear. We tried computer speakers, but they did not produce enough sound. I am hoping this is the answer that we were looking for, for an easy way to project the sound from the movies!
PUMPKIN SPICE CANDLE FOR FALL $24
I bought several new pumpkin candles for fall from Amazon Handmade. This handle is non-toxic and supports a small business. I haven't started burning it quite yet, because I am waiting for the official feeling of fall to kick in.
BLACK BAMBOO TO-GO MUG $9
LOVE this mug. It is definitely on my list of top Amazon must haves. It is smooth, silky, small, and eco-friendly. Not to mention modern and makes me excited to take my lattes to-go!
64 OZ WHITE TIME TRACKER WATER BOTTLE $19
I was not prepared for how large this water bottle would be. Sure, it says 64 oz, but you don't fully realize it until it's in your hand. THEN add water and it's even more of a shock for how heavy it is. However, this water bottle is necessary for me to keep track of how much water I am consuming. Coffee dehydrates, so between that, the occasional latte or La Croix, I want to make sure that I am fully hydrating myself for my body and skin.
HOMEMADE PUMPKIN SPICE CANDLE $18
This is another fall candle that I bought from Amazon Handmade! This one is also made by a small business and is non-toxic. I love the sleek black glass that it comes in.
FROTHING PITCHER FOR LATTES $8
While this is not a necessity, this milk frothing pitcher is not expensive and worth it to mention in my Amazon must haves because it makes frothing milk and creating pretty lattes easier.
