Amazon posts are back with some kitchen and outdoor stuff

About a month ago, in a baking post, I mentioned that I was thinking of doing the Amazon posts again. It’s been about two and a half months since we’ve done one and I hope it’s not insensitive to start them up again. Also If you use an ad blocker please consider turning if off when you visit us, as that helps us out. Please do not feel pressured to buy anything and as always let me know if there’s anything you’re interested in and I’ll look it up. Also let me know about your favorite purchases! Lately I’ve been baking and cooking a lot so I’m looking up products for that and to help me spend more time outdoors.

A mosquito repellent device for 15 feet of chemical-free protection
The Thermacell patio shield is a little butane-powered device that puts out a scent-free, chemical-free mosquito repellent that lasts for 12 hours. It would be great to use on your patio, porch or lawn to enjoy the outdoors without having to douse yourself in Deet. It’s around $20 for most color devices, and has 3.9 stars, over 1,600 ratings and an A from Fakespot. Reviewers rave about how well it works, writing that “even in the height of mosquito season, we can spend an evening on the patio with these and not get a single bite” and that it “made my summer more enjoyable.” You need to keep the lid off for it to stay lit, and some negative reviews seem to be people mistaking this for the device not working. Refills are also available on Amazon.

A healthy frozen dessert maker so you won’t keep mainlining ice cream
I spend so much money on ice cream that this would pay for itself in no time. The
Yonanas Classic Original Healthy Dessert Fruit Soft Serve Maker lets you make healthy frozen treats like frozen yogurt and sorbets at home. It’s just $46.16 and has 4.3 stars, over 2,700 ratings and a B from Fakespot. People say that it’s “simple to set up,” “very easy and safe” for kids to use and that the end product is “more like ice cream than some of the low-fat ice creams you buy in the store.” It’s also called a “small, lightweight appliance that is absolutely worth buying… easy to use and easy to clean up.” If you’re looking to spend a little more Cuisinart has an ice cream maker for $130. I’m really eyeing that one. I have to be realistic, I want the fat and sugar.

A set of silicone baking mats for easy cleanup
I moved into a new place mid-February and the last tenant left a set of three silicone baking mats in the warming tray under the oven. (That area under there is supposed to be a warming tray, right?) I love them and use them all the time! This is a set of 4 silicone baking mats by Rizotti. It comes with a little brush and spatula for $35. It has 4.8 stars, over 1,000 ratings and a B from Fakespot. Reviewers say “The mats work perfectly and fit 2 of my 3 baking sheets as if custom made,” and that “cleanup is easier than expected and so far no staining.” They also like that they’re BPA free. If you’re looking for a cheaper alternative Amazon Basics has a set of three for $14.99.

Nonstick silicone bread and loaf pans so you can bake without Crisco
I didn’t know these existed and now I want them! These silicone bread and loaf pans by PopBlossom make preparation and clean up easy. You don’t need to coat them with anything and your bread or meat loaf pops right out! They’re $14.49 and have 76 ratings, 4.5 stars and a B on Fakespot. Bakers call them “amazing,” “way better than I expected” and “easy to use and clean.” They’re 10″ L x 5″ W x 2.5″ Waflos brand has some similar pans available at a slightly higher price point.

Strategically ripped leggings you can wear to bed and all day
Did you guys see the Choose Your Work From Home outfit meme? I found it adorable and true. My WFH outfit is a sports bra, hoodie, leggings and sneakers, which is also my workout outfit. I’ve been wearing that to bed, working out in the morning, showering and maybe putting on jeans but more often just putting on a similar outfit again. I’ve always wanted a pair of artfully ripped leggings! This pair by Dibaolong with tummy control is available in sizes x-small to xx-large and in 9 different colors, all under $19! They have 4.5 stars, over 3,000 ratings and an A on Fakespot. Reviewers call them “so soft and comfy,” “fun and cute,” “super stretchy and not even a little tight.” These would look cute under a denim skirt too.

A multi-function kitchen tool that looks cute and does so much
Do you have an apple cutter? (I do, I love it!) Do you have a citrus juicer? Do you have an avocado scoop, a grater and a grapefruit juicer? This colorful multi-part device comes with all of that, plus a masher and a citrus cutter. It would look so cute on your counter and would make a thoughtful gift. This kitchen gadget by Olizee has 88 ratings, 3.5 stars and a B from Fakespot. Reviewers call it “handy,” “a cute addition to the countertop,” “useful” and “fun.” One woman said she bought a second one for work and several people say that they make great gifts.

A stainless steel rolling pin you can keep cold in the freezer
Now that I’m baking more I need a real rolling pin instead of just using an empty can. This 15.75″ steel rolling pin is under $16 and comes with a pastry mat! I’m picking it because it is less expensive than similar rolling pins. It has 14 ratings, 4.5 stars and a B from Fakespot. People say it’s “easy to clean,” “good for the price,” and “better than a wood roller.”

Lipstick that changes color with your skin PH
I’m also including this magic mood-type lipstick at the end because I spent a good five minutes reading reviews and wondering how it works. It starts off a bright vivid color in the tube and turns a pretty color when it interacts with your skin. The green tube above, Frog Prince, is said to be “a lovely shade of reddish rose w/o being garish in the least.” This has 717 ratings, 4.4 stars and a B on Fakespot. It’s called “very moisturizing, smooth to put on, and comfortable to wear,” not “glossy/goopy” like other moisturizing lipsticks and is said to create “a natural-looking” and complementary lip color.

    I HIGHLY recommend Frog Prince. I got a small sample one once in an Ipsy bag and now I make sure I have it all the time. Its so lightweight like a gloss, stays on like a lipstick and does amazing things for your skin tone! I reccomend this to everyone all the time.

    • FHMom says:

      The lipstick intrigues me. They have different shades, though. Will every color work on most skin tones?

      • Also Ali says:

        No. I tried the one in the yellow tube and it’s an unflattering hot pink on my lips.

      • CidyKitty(CidySmiley) says:

        I have only ever tried the pink tube with the green stick. It went very soft pink on me, I have darker skin so typically pink is not my go to for lipstick but it really balances!

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      Lipstick Queen is a terrific brand- super creamy and moisturizing. I have tried Frog Prince- too bright for me, but I love Jean Queen and Medieval.

    • Becks1 says:

      I ordered my frog prince yesterday and it already came! I really like it. I don’t like lipstick in general bc I feel I can never get the right shade and then I feel very self-conscious, but this I like – its a few shades rosier than my natural lip color and is very moisturizing.

    I like these posts. Keep them coming.

  3. LaUnicaAngelina says:

    I love the posts and everything recommended today!

    • Celebitchy says:

      Oh thank you! I’m pretty sure I’m going to buy the cuisinart ice cream maker.

      • Liz version 700 says:

        Love these posts! Thanks for bringing them back!

      • Becks1 says:

        I have the Cuisinart ice cream maker (not that one, an older model) and I LOVE it. the ice cream is super soft but it will harden in the freezer (I like it softer.) The ice cream it makes is delicious.

  4. Ellie says:

    I just moved into my first home, so I’d love more home decor, kitchen stuff, etc. Amazon has some pretty good stuff but it’s easy to go down a rabbit hole and spend hours on it.

  5. StellainNH says:

    I love my Thermocell. It is great to keep the mosquitoes away. I bought mine from my local Agway. They are also at True Value Hardware stores. I prefer to shop local for whatever I can.

  6. IMUCU says:

    I have a travel Thermacel for camping/hiking and it works great! If you have mosquito troubles, definitely recommend! Although I just realized I should get it out to take on walks with my dog too (I’ve only had her a few months) now that it is getting hot and humid here in FL….I’m gonna check out the “ice cream” maker device. When I was being very mindful with my eating, I used my food processor to blend up bananas, strawberries, a few almonds, and vanilla extract, freeze it and it made a yummy sorbet-type dessert. Need to try that again!

    Hi Celebitchy, long time lurker, second-time poster (for like, the entire internet, I’m not a commenter generally). Of all the websites I browse, yours is the most ethical about shopping list-type posts. I just wanted to commend you. That is all! Much love, from someone whose sanity was maintained during lockdown in part by your website. (Ps, I’ve only ever bought two things from posts like this, from any website, and one of them was yours; your selections are the best!) -B

    Edit: I’m not a blogger so it’s not my place to commend anyone in this regard because I don’t have any kind of moral or other authority here. But I can see you’ve been thinking long and hard about how to do this right and I wanted you to know at least one person sees it and appreciates it (and thinks you’re doing a great job).

  8. Elizabeth says:

    I’m glad these posts are back! I was wondering just the other day when y’all would get these going again. Thanks for taking the time!

  9. CL says:

    Dammit, I JUST bought a Thermacell on Amazon yesterday! My deck has been prettied up for the season, and I’m loving being out there, but bugs love me.

    The Frog Prince lipstick is great. I have several Lipstick Queen lipsticks – they have always struck me as higher quality than the price suggests.

  10. manda says:

    I love the frog prince lip stick! On me it is just a pretty pinkish red. Dior makes a similar product, but of course it is pricier

  11. Zantasia says:

    Can you do a list for Father’s Day? Pretty please?

  12. EviesMom says:

    Hi! I love the amazon posts (but feel conflicted re: enriching Bezos 😐) . However I am Canadian & wonder if you would consider adding some items? I used to order & have things shipped to my address in Washington but with the border closed that’s no longer an option. My CleverFox daytimer is still trapped at the front door in Washington… 😭
    The frog prince lipstick queen is $50 plus shipping on the site 😱.

  13. Tasha says:

    Speaking of leggings – I’ve purchased several pairs (ok 15) of pocket leggings. They are the absolute best! Tuck your phone and debit card in the pocket – and you are good to go!

    Love these posts!

  14. AnnaKist says:

    I want that rolling pin! I’ll still keep my various bits of old dowel, though. And I’d love to try that lipstick, just for fun.

  15. Amy Too says:

    I’d like a facial sunscreen recommendation that won’t break me out but that has decent SPF.

  16. AMAyson1977 says:

    I’ve been looking at the Frog Prince and Medieval lipsticks on Sephora for a couple of months and went ahead and ordered the Medieval tonight! I hope you still get credit even though it’s a different color than the feature. Also got the bug repeller as I live in Texas, land of mosquitos as big as sparrows. Thanks for the recommendations!

    Hey so happy to see the posts again. So many good ideas. I just bought the Yonanas a few weeks ago. I am pretty happy with it. The trick is to let the fruit thaw just a bit before you run it through. It makes a surprisingly good ice cream. I could see kids really liking this.
