Flattering high-waisted bikinis, an air fryer for healthy cooking and more

A lot of these recommendations come from Becks1. I also looked through some bathing suits, stuff for summer and other random things I want from Amazon. There’s always more stuff I want.

A flattering and cute high-waisted bikini
This affordable, high-waisted bikini comes in sizes small to xx-large and in 22 different print and color options, all with cute flouncy tops and high bottoms. It’s a recommendation from Becks1, who writes “I am 37, two c-sections and I carry my weight in my belly… So a lot of one pieces are too short on me, or emphasize belly, but I love the high waist trend for two pieces. Just got this one and it’s fun and comfortable.” Reviewers love it too, writing that it “fits perfect,” is “comfortable and cute” and “is so flattering.” Some say that it runs big so you may want to order a size down. Becks also owns this vintage two piece high-waisted suit, which comes in 16 different prints and colors, and recommends it.

The number one best seller in bathing suits
If a one piece is more your style this high neck flattering bathing suit by Tempt Me has so many options. It comes in sizes x-small to 20 plus and in 16 different colors and prints. There’s a mesh panel to show cleavage without being too revealing and it has full bottom coverage. It has over 2,000 reviews, 4.5 stars and an A from Fakespot. Women call it slimming, say that it hides tummies and fits great. Reviewers write that it has “great support, “looks cute,” and is “modest yet a little sexy.” You may want to double check sizing and order a size up as it’s said to run small.

Water shoes to protect your feet from hot sand and sunburn
The beach can be relaxing and fun but who hasn’t had sunburned feet or feet that get burned from walking on the sand? These unisex water shoes are ultra affordable at under $14, come in 30 different prints and colors and in sizes 5 to 13 for women. They’re great for water sports like kayaking and can protect your feet at the beach, pool or creek. Unlike other brands on Amazon they have a rubber sole, which offers more protection. Reviewers call them the “comfortable enough to forget you are wearing them” and the “best water shoes I’ve ever purchased.”

A versatile sleeveless tank in so many colors and prints
Becks1 also recommended this top, which she owns in three different colors and loves. She writes “They look cute tucked in or untucked. They are a loose fit so I love them for things like my kids sports when you can’t always predict how hot it’s going to be.” This comes in sizes small to xx-large and 24 prints and colors. Women write that these tanks are “cute and flattering,” “very comfortable,” “awesomely soft” and “a nice top for the price.”

Washing machine cleaning tablets for fresher laundry
These washing machine cleaning tablets are the number one best seller in tools and home improvement. They’re said to get out nasty odors and gunk that can accumulate in the wash. I definitely need them as my front-loading washer is smelling funky. A reviewer writes “not only did it clean my machine, it eliminated the nasty smell that always transferred to my clothes.” One person says to try this version of the tablets, which is fragrance free.

A set of four tweezers so you’ll never be without the right pair
I’m traveling this week and I only have a crappy pair of tweezers with me, the kind that breaks your hair instead of pulling it out by the root. For some reason I’m always losing tweezers, especially the good ones. These tweezers are just $15 for 4 pieces. People call them the “best tweezer set ever,” rave about how precise they are and say they can “grab the tiniest, finest hair.” They’re also said to be great for small crafting work.

An awesome air fryer to cook and bake without an oven
Becks1 also recommended an air fryer, she has this one and I have a small earlier model Philips, similar to this one. I’m featuring the high capacity 6 quart one by OMORC, above, as it’s affordable, programmable and has high ratings. You can even cook a whole chicken in it. You may want to watch the video to see if it will fit in your kitchen. (Here’s a link to a smaller 3.8 quart one.) I love my air fryer. It’s so convenient for baking chicken and cooking frozen items like french fries, bagel bites, fish and more. You can cook almost anything in it. (The one I have is 2.75 quart and does not fit a full size frozen pizza, but you can use it for single serve pizzas.) My mom got it for me and I use it a few times a week. If you’re looking for a large capacity air fryer with accessories for baking, this 5.7 quart one by Yedi is also highly rated and comes with a cake pan, silicon mat, pizza pan and a dividable basket.

    I’m so embarrassed by my Amazon love.

    So I have the 3.7 qt air fryer and I do think its a little small (the air fryer itself is pretty big, but the basket isn’t.) Last night I made individual pizzas and I had to cook each one individually and it was kind of a pain. But, the food is good, so maybe I will upgrade down the line to a bigger one.

    And ladies I really do love those high waisted bikinis. I feel cute in swim suits again!

      Thank you Becks1 for the recommandations! I just bought 2 pairs of bikinis, they look so cute. The pineapples and the navy flamingos. It was so hard to choose! Thanks again!

    • Snazzy says:

      I just bought 2 of the bikinis too! I normally hate summer because I hate my body and the way I look and feel in summer clothes but this year I decided enough of that and I’m going to go for it. I can’t wait to get them in the mail!

    • Shannon says:

      I am right there with you Becks1! I live in a rural area, and Amazon is life LOL – also, I love the suggestions, thank you! I’m about to head to vacation in Florida for a week and that two piece looks perfect.

  2. Mgsota says:

    I just bought an air fryer and I LOVE IT! I got the Ninja from Walmart. I’ve used it often. It’s so fast and cooks everything so nicely.
    I’m ordering the washing machine tablets today! I hate my front loading washer.

  3. Yellowrocket says:

    My airfryer is hands down the best kitchen gadget I ever bought I love it.

  4. Sarah B says:

    Here to confirm that those tweezers are THE BEST.

  5. Sassbr says:

    I have that tweezer set!! It really is the best tweezer set known to man. I never knew I would need four different tweezer heads but I really use them for different areas (chin vs eyebrow, etc.)

  6. Harryg says:

    Thank you Becks1 & Celebitchy!
    I needed those water shoes, they look great.

  7. KidV says:

    I’m going to have to get some of those water shoes for kayaking. I usually get a pair of Furoshiki wrap shoes and they work well, but they’re just pricey and ugly enough that I only get one pair per summer. If they had nice colors I wouldn’t mind spending the money, but they don’t. Now I can get lots of colors. I can even color coordinate with my kayak! lol

    And those are two-piece bathing suits, not bikinis. And very cute.

    • Snowflake says:

      I know, i love the variety of colors and cheap price of those water shoes! Great for my mom who likes going in the bay w the rocks w algae.

  8. Lila says:

    Ohhhh once I saw the back I was sold on the bikini. Too cute. I love bows in the back.

    I’ll check out the washer cleaner tabs, too. I bought the Arm and Hammer ones at Target, but unfortunately they’re too strong. I think the next ten loads I did wound up with the scent all over them!

    • I have used this brand of washing machine cleaner. I can say they work well, and got rid of the bad smell that was getting into my clothes from when I let someone else use my washer for awhile. I’m really sensitive to perfumes so I always get unscented if I can.

      I’ve also used the the tablets they have for cleaning dishwashers, and I like that too.

    I just LOVE these posts!

    However ~ I’m at a loss with what to do with all the empty Amazon boxes that are quickly accumulating in my house…LOL

    • lucy2 says:

      I kind of hoard those too, lol. I occasionally sell stuff on ebay or amazon though, so it’s good to have some boxes in a pinch. Once I get more than a few though, time to swing by the recycling center!

  10. Agnes says:

    So excited to see you recommend Affresh! (It’d be more clever if the product was called FreshAF.) I just bought it at a local hardware store like 2 days ago. The smell of our washer was driving me insane. Lol Haven’t used it yet, but will today.

    • Celebitchy says:

      Let me know if you like it! I’m cheap and only bought the tweezers so far.

      • Incongnito says:

        Affresh is awesome. I’ve been using them in my front loading washing for over 2 years now and they work great. I also use their dishwasher cleaning tabs. A friend of mine thought she needed a new dishwasher but tried the tabs and now it cleans better.

    I just bought two of the bathing suits (the one on the top in red and black, and the one piece with the see thru panel in the front). I hate my belly sooooo much, so I’ll probably body-dysmorphia talk myself out of one or both, but I am going to take a chance on some new styles.

    Am really enjoying these posts. I just bought a second of the trunk caddies from one of your first posts, and I’m going to use both in my trunk. (Already had bought one when you first showed it.) I freaking love that thing!

    I slept on buying the pore vacuum thing that you posted about, and it’s no longer available. How did you choose that one, just by doing the fakespot thing? (Another great find from these posts!)

    Thanks again!
