Bath bombs, comfortable shoes, a cat perch and more products by request

Stuff I have bought from Amazon since the last time we talked (I know it’s only been two days, it’s for my job!) include that cooler bag from last Thursday, which is the perfect size and looks great (I haven’t used it yet), and a pop filter for my microphone because there was too much thudding from me in our last podcast. Last week I got a gel bike seat to bring with me to spin class, which my physical therapist recommended. It’s so nice! I talk about that below.

A slip-on bicycle gel seat for comfortable spin classes and bike rides
Frankly I was hurting from how much spinning I’ve been doing at a new gym. I thought that I needed to use anti-chafing cream and got this chamois cream which worked somewhat, but this seat made enough difference that I don’t need it. It feels so comfortable when you have to go up and down quickly. I just leave this in my car with my spin shoes so I don’t forget to bring it to class. It fits right over the existing seat and makes such a big difference in the ride. Plus it’s only $10! This has 2,400 reviews, 4.4 stars and a C from Fakespot but I’m vouching for it. People say it’s “extremely comfortable and cushiony” and that the other people in their spin classes are jealous. One person with a Peloton says it doesn’t fit right, but it fits my cheap Schwinn bike at home.

Very comfortable slip-on walking sneakers
So many of you were asking for shoes with support as you have plantar fasciitis (check out our conversation about that), arch problems or other issues with your feet. These slip on shoes by Konhill were among the top listings under “arch support shoes for women” on Amazon. They have 358 reviews, 4.5 stars and an A from Fakespot. They’re also very affordable with all varieties under $33. They come in sizes 4.5 to 13 and in 25 different colors. People call them “very comfortable,” “lightweight” and the “best, most comfortable sneakers I’ve ever owned!” I don’t know how supportive they are but a lot of people like them. Other highly rated support shoes are Asics Gel-Venture running shoes (I have these! Both Kaiser and I love Asics) and Skechers Work Women’s Sure Track which are not cute at all but women who work on their feet really appreciate them.

Bath bombs would make a nice gift for yourself or a friend
Antonym asked for bath bombs, which we’ve featured before. This was a tricky category as I check both Fakespot and the more recent reviews and almost all bath bomb reviews are mixed. So I’m going for affordability here. This is a set of 40 colorful individually wrapped 2.65 ounce bath bombs for just $34. It has 4.7 stars, 76 reviews and an A from Fakespot. You could give the entire set as a gift or break them up and give a couple inside a gift bag and keep some for yourself. These are said to “feel amazing on the skin,” to have “just the right mix of fragrances and moisturizer” and to be a “great value.” Here’s a 24 pack of 3.5 ounce organic bath bombs for $29. (That one has 4.5 stars, over 370 reviews and a B from Fakespot.)

Four-tier space-saving skirt hangers
Emmett wanted to find skirt hangers, which is something I need too. (I probably need to pare down my clothing. I just bought two skirts in the past week. They’re from Goodwill, it’s ok!) I already own skirt hangers similar to this. Depending on the material of the skirt you can usually fit two to a hook. You get 3 four-tier hangers for $20 or 6 for $40 so you may as well buy 3 first to see if you like them. These have 450 reviews, 4.6 stars and an A from Fakespot. People call them “perfect for space saving,” “sturdy and reliable” and great for boots and other uses too. I have had mine for probably 30 years, no joke. If you’re looking for something cheaper you can get 25 crystal plastic skirt hangers for $17. If you’re a fancy bitch with a big closet these wooden ones are really nice and come in three finishes. There are also velvet ones to match your other hangers (I use the velvet hangers they’re the best) in black, ivory, gray and burgundy. (All have over 4 stars and As from Fakespot, except the plastic hangers which have a C.)

A cat perch to create a cozy hangout spot
Nicegirl asked for a window cat hammock, which is something I would not have thought of as I don’t have pets. (I get to watch my friend’s border collie starting Friday though I can’t wait!) However I’ve just had a really nice time looking through photos of cats sleeping. The Kitty Cot attaches to your window with sturdy suction cups to create the ideal spot for your feline overlord. It has almost 1,500 reviews, 4.5 stars and a B from Fakespot. It comes in small, medium, large and deluxe along with a version designed to work with blinds/shades. You can put your own blanket or cat bed on it but cats seem to love it alone too. One pet owner said her cats “immediately gravitated towards it” and she had to buy two because they were fighting over it. Others say their cat spends every morning on it watching the birds and squirrels. The suction cups are said to hold well as long as you clean the window first.

Tiny packages of food from real brans
I just saw Chrissy Teigen playing with these on her Instagram stories and they’re adorable! My son is 14 so I’m not familiar with these Shopkins toys, which are dolls with giant heads and eyes. They have tiny versions of actual products and little grocery stores for them. Look how cute these are! One version has tiny Pop-tarts, Cheez-Its, Eggos and Pringles. The other has Froot Loops, Rice Krispie Treats and Manwich. I think my friend’s granddaughter needs these. They have fake brands too which are also cute.

Handcrafted earrings that look just like tiny food!
While searching for “tiny food” on Amazon I found these amazing handcrafted earrings and keychains! I love them so much. These incredible earrings are made from polymer clay by a woman in California, SK, who writes that she got into it after making food for her niece’s dolls. There are earrings that look tiny peanut butter and jelly (those are above) challah bread, tacos, avocado toast, sushi, a little cookie and a milk, Goldfish crackers, and ravioli. She also has little keychains which are similarly adorable. Everything is around $20 which is a real bargain. I want the salad earrings! She even has jelly beans and candy corn!

    I definitely need the skirt hanger and would love to get my son the tiny food. He’s 4 and loves playing with toy food and “cooking” for us.

    I have been meaning to ask for recommendations on some items but of course I’m drawing a blank right now. They’ll come to me later. Thanks for all of the suggestions!

  2. Who ARE These People? says:

    Any ideas on sneakers or comfy shoes that come in extra wide sizes, WW or EE?

  3. Meghan says:

    I bought the Amazon Essentials flats in black, from the Monday post, and today is my first day wearing them to work! They seem a tiny bit tight but I am hoping it will stretch with wear and there is some cushion at the bottom. Even if I can’t make it all day at work I think it would be much better than my $5 flats when running errands.

    • Celebitchy says:

      LMK how they are and send them back if you don’t like them! (If you can, they may take a percentage off. Just call to ask.) I send a lot of stuff back to Amazon if I don’t like it.

      • Nicegirl says:

        You’ve made my heart sing with these kitty hammock recommendations for my lil wild things!! @celebitchy thank you lady! Omg I will be posting pics of my kitty mouse in her window spots, will email them! Thank you. Ask and you shall receive ❤️💕🖖🏽

        I just know that Little Miss Luna Bengal would adore that hammock, especially on an upstairs window where she can survey the entire neighbourhood! It’s amazing how humans, young and old, are enchanted by miniature “anythings”. I’m in Australia, and our two major supermarket chains are currently involved in promotions where, when customers spend $30, they are entitled to a miniature “toy”. One has The Lion King Ooshies pencil toppers, while the other has miniatures of favourite groceries. I suspect that the CEOs expected a real supermarket war – loyalty to one chain, but it seems shoppers are very keen to collect both, so shop at both chains, and in varying localities. This seems to be borne out by my own friends, acquaintances and colleagues. There are Facebook trading groups, too, so that collectors can complete their sets. I don’t collect, but the groceries are adorable, and my daughter is after the loaf of bread to complete her set. I wonder why we’re so taken in with miniatures?

    The cat perch is awesome. I have 3 cats and they love it. The suction cups hold really well. 1 of my cats is almost 20 pounds (not fat, a big dude) and it doesn’t budge when he jumps on it. I actually bought 2 because there were some fights lol.

    • Lucky says:

      11 cats and two batches of foster kittens – I have four of the perches and all of the cats love them. I will say that four of the cats are a year old, so big grown cats that are still kittens, and when they get overly wild with each other they can manage to knock the pvc off the bottom suction cups. They are the only cats that have. All of the adults are able to jump on and off without issues.

      • Juliette says:

        The only issue I have seen with the perch is when the fabric wears through. I haven’t found a place where I can replace just the cloth rather than the entire thing. I have made my own new covers with some denim I bought at Fabricland. I would be nice if they sold replacement cloths.

    • Giddy says:

      I am currently cat-less, but I love that perch. I think I’ve grieved long enough for my Sweet Maisie that I’m going to go to my local animal shelter and look for the next feline ruler of our household. That cat perch will be next.

      • Joanna says:

        Awww, I’m sorry for your loss. You are not betraying your Maisie by getting another cat though. I’m sure she understands

  5. Emmet says:

    @CB OMG, thanks so much for the shout out and recommendation!

    Ooh, 4 tier!!

    Bought a long cardigan and jeggings you endorsed a while ago.
    Love them, actually went back purchased a 2nd pair, can be worn at work and comfy.


  6. tealily says:

    Thanks for the shoe rec! I love that those come in so many different colors. I’ll give them a shot. If they work, I’ll grab a couple! Those sushi earrings are super cute too.

    • Venus says:

      I have those exact shoes and love them. SUPER comfy for my fussy, painful feet, and not a single blister. I have very narrow heels and can’t usually wear slip-on shoes, but the “ribbing” around the ankle on these means they don’t slip off my feet (and is loose enough that it’s not at all constraining). Highly recommend!

  7. Bosandi says:

    I am in love with the tiny food earrings. There’s a fried drumstick pair that is sooo adorable.

  8. Sophie says:

    Firstly, thank you to the commenter in the last shopping post who recommended 6pm for shoe shopping. I found my favorite loafers in a color I didn’t own yet on sale!

    Secondly, if you like Asiics, definitely check out Hoka One One shoes. They’re expensive, but they support my high arches and my back and knee pain disappeared after my first few times running in them. I had been doing PT for 8 months with a lot of improvement, but had accepted a moderate amount of back pain as my reality. Until I got the Clifton V shoes by Hoka. They are NOT cute but are so comfortable. They teamed up with OV to make some less ugly versions, too.

    • T1000 says:

      I just got new Clifton 6 Hokas today, after using the Clifton 5 for a year! They are really the best if you have back problems. I have herniated discs and arthritis throughout my spine. The running store recommended some Nikes for me, but I immediately noticed a huge difference, in a bad way. I ran in the Nikes a few times and my back and other joints started hurting a lot more than usual. So I went back to Hoka and wow, I appreciate them even more now! Highly recommend!

  9. Liz version 700 says:

    I have a similar cat perch and my cat spends the entire day there. She loves it.

  10. Kitten says:

    Oh man, I wish my cats would go for a perch like that but I know they wouldn’t be into it as they don’t really care for looking out the window, oddly enough. My boy cat prefers to watch birds on TV (he’s scared of everything) and my girl cat like to go outside and hang in our enclosed patio (catio) for bird-watching.

  11. Antonym says:

    @Celebitchy – thank you so much for the bath bomb recommendations!

    I love shopping your lists and really appreciate how responsive you are to our comments and requests.
