Amazon Favorites: December 2021 edition

Life + Style

December 20, 2021

Ohhhh goodness, I know I left you hanging by foregoing my monthly Amazon roundup in November, but I assure you the wait is well worth it with this all new round-up of goodness… Amazon never fails me and I thought it was high time to get back to everyone’s one-stop shop wonder megamarket, as I know it’s always one of your very favorite monthly recaps:

Amazon Favorites for December 2021 by top US life and style blogger, Hello Happiness.
quarter zip hoodie | mesh crop tee | shiny leggings | nike running shoes

First things first, I know everyone is starting to think about getting back on that fitness train once 2022 debuts, and I believe you’ve gotta dress the part to get yourself motivated. This entire, head-to-toe ensemble is courtesy of Amazon Fashion and I am digging these brightly colored styles! The Quarter Zip Hoodie offers a fun, retro take on a light windbreaker for milder winter days at under $50. It comes in three colorways, features a crop silhouette, and runs TTS [I’m wearing the XS].

Underneath, I’ve started with the anything but basic Mesh Crop Tee, which comes in 5 hues, runs TTS/wearing XS, and is a great fabrication for all around comfort + breathability. Not one to stop there, these Hi-Rise Shiny Leggings boast a snug fit for the best workout wear, a shiny lycra + spandex blend, and contrasting panels for a little bit of added drama to your days [also run TTS/wearing XS].

And of course, new sneakers ALWAYS make my heart happy and get set to run for sprint day! They are my go-to essential shoes that I have worn for years, and this new colorway is just icing on the cake–just be sure to size up 1/2 size because they run a bit small.

Let’s also revisit a STELLAR style I loved last year that has now been restocked yet again. If you’re on the hunt for the PERFECT holiday red, this The Drop Balloon Sleeve Sweater is right up your alley! Under $40, it’s super soft and a lighter knit, comes in four colors [including black, winter white and camel] and offers the perfect bit of feminine style with the subtle puff sleeve. I promise you won’t be disappointed [runs TTS/wearing XS].

T3 Airebursh Duo Styler | I chatted about this all new hair tool the other day on stories, but wanted to make sure I mentioned it here for those that still love an old fashioned review. I have long loved my Dyson Airstyler, but the pricepoint is crazy high, so I wanted to test this out to see how they matched up. And I was pleasantly surprised at how smooth it made my strands and how fast it dried as well. Lots of temperature settings, a cool shot button and two hair attachments = plus a pricetag of under $200 makes this a winner. I’ve been a T3 user for years and swear by their curling iron and straightener and this is a winner as well!

Snakeprint Heeled Sandal | I’ve shown these in the classic black before and then grabbed them in the cool suede grey, but of course everyone needs a little snakeprint in their lives so it was only fitting I found this patterned pair worthwhile, too. Theyb run TTS/are super comfy and come in more than 15 colors for under $50.

Jacquard Sweater | The all over dot pattern in an abstract pattern = yes please! There is no playing it safe with this versatile take on a traditional fitting winter sweater. Super warm and luxe fabrication with contrasting sleeve and neck hem = I’m all in! And for good measure it comes in a handful of prints, runs TTS/wearing XS and is just $30.

Orolay Winter Fleece Down Coat | Yep, you caught me… it’s the third color in this coat I now own! It is seriously THAT good. I love this fun updated take with sherpa colorblocking to keep you extra warm this winter. It’s a great pricepoint at $159 and also comes in a darker color combo as well. I would highly recommend sizing down/runs big/I’m wearing an XXS.
