Alright, so I know bloggers and influencers are all “I love this product! It’s so amazing! You have to check it out!” and while some may truly just enjoy a product and want to share it with their online community, a good portion of them are transparent enough and tag it with #ad – aka they get paid to tell you they love it.
A long time ago I saw a product placement being endorsed by Scott Disick. While whatever it was he was promoting probably still made him some major money, the best part was that when the caption was posted with the picture he (or his team) didn’t edit out the part that revealed the caption was not even written by him, but instead the company who sold it. Ever since then I truly raise an eyebrow and chuckle when influencers are pushing something, especially when multiple ones promote the SAME one around the SAME time. Admittedly I have followed the swipe up links from time to time, or even gone as far as to buy something from a link, but more often than not I usually stay away. (Sorry official bloggers, but it’s true. At least for me.)
Basically all that rambling preamble was to now show you a few Amazon purchases I’ve made over the last year that I honestly do love, enjoy, and haven’t regretted purchasing. Why should you separate me from other people who tell you about “products they love”? Well if I’m being honest, and I am, I have such a small IG audience and do not and will not be making any money off of you; so in other words, I legitimately like them.
Below are a curated list of items that I have personally purchased and can attest to their quality and worth. All items are linked through the picture.
