I’m partnering with Amazon.ca for the rest of 2017 to bring you some of my favourite finds for you and the home. I’m a huge fan of Amazon.ca, I’ve been a Prime member for the last year and every week or two make a shop for something for me, or my home. I’m also a member of their affiliate link program – which is a great program to sign up on if you’re a blogger.
Although there is a joy in browsing my local stores (I think you should totally support your local shops) there’s a place in my life for the online marketplace of Amazon. I typically shop with them once a week or, every other week. As a busy Mom, at 12 am when you need to get things checked off your list, pressing BUY and having it show up the next day is a game changer. It makes my life easier and I’ve been using for over a decade. Not only is the convenience of shopping online what draws me to their market, it’s their HUGE selection of brands and products with big brands and small brands that I may not otherwise get introduced to. And what seals the deal on purchases are the reviews from other people who have purchased the item so I can really get a sense for if the product is for me.
I’ll share some picks and purchases over the next few months but I thought I’d dive through my buying habits over the last 30 days which I think explains why I love the site so much. The thing with Amazon.ca is that I’ve been able to find products I haven’t otherwise been able to find. AND, you can bundle them all into one shipment. So you don’t have to drive to a local health food store, park, go in and buy and then drive across town to the home store to buy the rest. Ok, so here’s my random purchasing to give you a taste of why I love it so.
I wanted to try charcoal tooth paste (no joke) and there it was. And the reviews are ridiculously helpful. People post pictures (showing me their new white teeth) and help me choose which product to pick. Result, it’s kind of fun to brush your teeth with this black stuff. You can see people’s actual reviews of products and whether they are verified purchases which is helpful. (See below)
I wanted to try one of those micro needle rollers after a friend talked about how amazing hers was, and how her skin was glowing. Instead of searching all around Toronto – Amazon.ca had a bunch and I picked the one that had the best reviews. Purchase result – It is awesome and I’m hooked. Although Aubrey is unsure about his wife rolling her face with mini needles.
In one of my late night, sleepless nights I bought a tree bag watering system for our front tree and am obsessed with that too. (Seriously, I was seeing them all over Toronto and had no idea where to get them so went to Amazon.ca and typed in “tree bag”. Bingo. Result – I feel like my tree has grown a foot since I started. Although I’m not sure about that. But I’m happy with my purchase.
And one of my bigger purchases was our RING Wi-Fi doorbell. My friend Erika bought one for her house and I was impressed with how it worked. I loved my no hassle experiences with Amazon.ca and simply went online and noticed it was comparable in price to other retailers but the shipping with Amazon.ca gets me every time. I know it’s reliable and fast, so it’s a no brainer that I just buy from them. A day later it arrived and Aubrey was installing it. Result – Love it. Highly recommend.
So as you can see, from face needle rollers for your beauty routine, to charcoal tooth paste and wi-fi doorbells that you can answer from across the world, Amazon.ca carries everything. I’m excited to tell you about more of my picks between now and the end of 2017.
