Amazon Finds, August 2020.

*Image above a little nook in our dining room, featuring the decorative eggs mentioned below.

My latest discoveries and loves on Amazon — click image to be taken to details, or see my notes below.

+I purchased these decorative eggs (seen above, in a little nook in our dining room alongside two of my all-time favorite design books: Allegra Hicks’ An Eye for Design and Michael S. Smith’s Elements of Style; a sweet tole trinket tray from Jayes Studio; mercury glass candlesticks I fill with Caspari tapers; and a framed robin’s egg that Mr. Magpie found me) seven or eight years ago as a way to break up the wall of glass Pottery Barn apothecary jars (one such seen above) that decorated our bookshelves. (We had had a candy bar at our wedding and I bought those jars just for the occasion; I was determined to make use of them.) I still love the way they look in our apartment, which is decorated with pops of robin’s egg blue throughout.

+This is the year of the nightgown; whoever is doing PR for nightgowns deserves a raise. It’s all I want to wear! This looks so perfect for warm, late-summer nights. (More chic nightgown-style pieces for day or night here.)

+I bought mini this inexpensive cotton set ($14!) for post-park, post-bath lounging in the late afternoons. So soft and cozy. They also have a boy version.

+I love this frayed edged ribbon, in the perfect shade of Magpie blue. Would look so pretty wrapping a gift wrapped in stark white paper.

+Such a cool geometric lamp — I imagine it in a little boy’s room.

+I own and love these modern bins for stowing overflow pantry items and bulky packages like chips/pretzels.

+This $29 children’s raincoat made my roundup of fall outerwear picks for toddlers. Love the styling and the price.

+Magnetic wooden blocks — I love attractive wood toys like these.

+Zip top snack containers for little ones.

+I use these facial wipes on Hill — I find that standard wipes irritate his face; these contain soothing ingredients like calendula and oat milk.

+Just the cutest ballerinas for a little lass. Come in all kinds of colors and $26!

+I like these lidded jars for markers and crayons.

+As a part of my next “Honest Review” installment, I have been looking for great (comfortable, non-hideous) underwear. These from Natori came highly recommended, so I purchased (along with a few other brands to compare). They are so soft and so pretty!

+Sweet little organic kimono top and pant set for a newborn.

+Love this hyacinth wicker occasional table! Wow!

+I’m a total convert to Cocofloss — superior to any floss I’ve ever used before. Full review here.

+Mr. Magpie gave me a caran d’ache pen in my stocking last year and I LOVE MINE. Disregard the three star rating on Amazon; this pen writes beautifully and elevates my everyday list-making and note-taking regimen.

P.S. My last roundup of Amazon finds (and please — if you’ve not yet tried them, add a package of Mommy Wipes to your next order, as they are SO handy for wiping up stains and messes on the go), plus 10 things you need in your kitchen.

P.P.S. My former New York apartment judged me — but then we moved.

P.P.P.S. These leggings sell out every time they re-stock. You can preorder now.


  1. Your pen rec made me very curious to read your stocking stuffer picks… I LOVE stocking stuffers!! Yes I know itโ€™s August, but does time even exist anymore??

    1. HA! No, it does not. Also, my mom is so good about buying things around the year to give as Christmas gifts. I am trying to follow suit but then I just get too excited and give this gifts early…anyhow, this post has a bunch of last-minute/smaller gifts including stocking stuffers that is still highly relevant to the question:


  2. Agree with Diana โ€” love this vignette at the top of the post! I also have a copy of Melanie Dunea’s My Last Supper โ€” I believe it was a gift from my brother, if I recall correctly ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love those Natori unders โ€” so comfy-looking!


  3. Iโ€™m sure itโ€™s more work, but I really love the product pics in this post vs the standard list format!
