You know that joke about how you think your makeup looks perfect at home and then you get into your car where you see yourself in the mirror and look nothing like you thought you did in the dark of your home applying makeup? Yeah, this mirror eliminates that. It is a splurge for sure, but it definitely worth it. I have not had that experience once since purchasing the Rikki Mirror and love the confidence it gives me when applying my makeup. I look so much better!
I have been looking for a similar pair of teddy-style slippers ever since the SKIMS pair came and went before I could grab a pair. These finally surfaced on Amazon and I immediately bought them!
I love the look of this coffee maker. The first time I took my first sip, I wasn't really even thinking about the coffee maker because I hadn't had my coffee yet and needed to wake up, but my first thought was "This is really smooth coffee." It makes a smooth cup of coffee and a friend of mine was commenting on the effect that the rain-style water spout has on the coffee where it creates an even boil instead of in one particular spot causing the boiling water to burn the grounds going into the coffee.
This one didn't make it into the graphic because I honestly forgot it when arranging everything, but I LOVE this camera. It really does not disappoint. It has been on my list for a while now and I finally bought it this year! I use the manual settings with my photography background, so if you have any photography knowledge or are willing to learn, I recommend setting everything yourself. If you don't have that or the desire to learn, auto is great too. This camera's focusing feature is really what makes it along with the lighting, and overall it creates buttery photos. You will need an SD Card and I also recommend this port for iPhones to instantly upload them to your phone through your photos.
I have a similar Polaroid camera that creates wide photos, but I am linking this one because this one wasn't available when I bought mine. I love the look of the square photo instead of the narrow ones that the Instax mini creates. These are small squares, but I love that they are truer to the look of the original Polaroid camera. I use mine all the time and love it. It is a great way to put your phone away, care less about the perfect lighting, and just capture moments with your kids that you will look back on later.
I wouldn't link just any robe for a cheesy and predictable gift. I came across these UNHIDE lightweight robes that are a mix between a cozy blanket and a robe, so really a blanket that you can wear around the house. I'll take that!
Now that I have my SMEG drip coffee machine, the next purchase on my list is an espresso machine. I love the look of this one being black and so aesthetic. I am the only one who drinks coffee in our home, so it's really just for me and better look good on the counter if I'm taking up space.
The brand Our Place is finally on Amazon! I have been wanting a Dutch-oven style pot, and I love that this one comes in a charcoal color. Our kitchen is all white, so I am trying to infuse contrast into the space with our appliances and countertop items.
I'm obsessed with this popcorn maker! I love it because it's black, but it's also so fun to use and the popcorn is seriously the most delicious popcorn I've ever had. It's just as tasty as movie theater popcorn. We don't have a microwave, so this was a big deal for us to finally have a fun and tasty way to make it for movie nights! I highly recommend buying the popcorn kit that is made by the maker. I've tried it both ways using the sample pack that comes with the maker as well as buying my own at the grocery. The Franklin's popcorn kit really is superior in taste!
I want this cookbook for our pasta nights while we are learning the art of pasta making. I figured a quality recipe book couldn't hurt, because as much as I have done research online, having a done-for-you book is more helpful than piecing recipe ideas together when you're just starting to learn.
I am so close to getting my own set of pasta attachments for our KitchenAid mixer. If you have the mixer, this is a fun gift to create experiences with your family in the form of pasta nights. I am going to create an entire post about the ultimate pasta night at home, because I am passionate about cooking together, creating experiences, and eating homemade food! Obviously, we aren't making homemade pasta every night, but I want to be intentional and make homemade pasta nights a routine Sunday Supper that we do once a month.
