Recent Amazon Purchases: September 2020

Here's what I ordered from Amazon in September...


1.  Collected: City + Country, Volume 1 by Sarah Richardson.  I have been a Sarah Richardson fan for years, and didn't realize she had new design books out.  At just over $12, I hit purchase rather quickly.  I feel like there is inspiration in this book for everyone, and would be a great add to any home library.


2.  Essential Oil Diffuser.  I took the plunge this month and ordered some essential oils.  I wanted more fall/Christmas scents, so I just ordered a few to try, and then opted to get a diffuser from Amazon.  If you are in the market, Lindsay helped me decide which scents to get, and on the diffuser, too!


3.  Command Strips.  I went to go hang something on the wall, and realized I didn't have enough Command strips.  Amazon had them here in two days.  I like to get the large size, then cut down if need be.


4.  Just Feed Me by Jessie James Decker.  My cookbook obsession is alive and well.  I just got this last week and while I have thumbed through it, I haven't had a chance to cook anything yet.  I plan to soon, though!  Some of the reviews I read online where that the recipes were 'simple', 'basic/generic', 'all Pinterest recipes'.  And while many of the recipes are 'basic', that's one of the reasons I like the cookbook.  It's very approachable, and unintimidating.  There is nothing like getting a cookbook, reading through the recipes and feeling like there is nothing you will make because the ingredients are a little too foreign, or the cooking style is a bit too outside of your comfort zone.  This is not that type of cookbook.  I think I will find some good 'everyday' recipes from this one!


5.  The Return by Nicholas Sparks.  Nicholas Sparks is one of my favorite authors, and when I saw he had a new book coming out, I pre-ordered it.  I have a few library books to get through first, but I am quite excited to get to this one!


6.  True Comfort by Kristin Cavallari.  Two recipes in, and a slew to go!  I am a big Kristin Cavallari fan, and was super excited to get this cookbook.  Comfort food that is on the healthier side?  Sign me up!  As I mentioned, I have already tried two of the recipes, and they were delicious.  I have a bunch more marked, too.  Between her two cookbooks, this one is definitely more up my alley.  I am a Midwesterner through and through...give me all the comfort food!  Highly recommend!

  2. You'll have to let me know how that Nicholas Sparks book is! And I hope you're enjoying your oils so far! One of my friends just said that she tried cinnamon, clove, and tangerine together and that it's amazing! I've never thought to throw tangerine or orange in with my fall scents, but I bet it'll be good! I might try it this afternoon!

  3. I don't know why I never thought of just cutting the large command strips down to size...genius. Love the look of the new diffuser! Thanks for linking up with Hello Monday! Tanya - The Other Side of the Road

  5. That Jessie James Decker cookbook sounds like my type of cookbook. She did an interview recently with my local news promoting the book. Also, didn't know Nicholas Sparks has a new book out - off to check it out now! xo

  6. I want to "test out" the True Roots cookbook but I am afraid her ingredients are going to be hard to repilicate since we are not gluten free

    1. I think you will be good - they can be a bit different, but it seems like everything is available at any local grocery store!
