We have the kettle, ode grinder, and pour over that we use to make our daily coffee. As a household of two that doesn't always make coffee at this same time, this setup makes more sense for us than a coffee pot and the taste is far superior. We have used them daily for a few years and no issues so far, other than a few small paint chips coming off the grinder catch cup but fellow was kind enough to replace it. We also use the kettle for tea and other applications and it is so useful to be able to control the temperature with precision. The grinder is a bit messy but it doesn't bother us. We also have some of the carter mugs, which are nice but nothing groundbreaking for a travel mug.
I'm obsessed with their cream blush, I don't know how it hasn't gotten more hype with all of the liquid/cream blushes that have become so popular. I apply it with a brush and it looks so natural, is very buildable, and much less likely to be overpowering than a liquid formula. You can apply it with a full face or very minimal makeup and it still looks good. This is the only Merit product I've tried but I will certainly try more in the future.
If you are an iced coffee drinker these are a MUST! No more sweaty cups and the ice doesn't melt as fast. The ice cream pint ones are also great!
I ordered a leather charging mat for my husband as a gift and we ended up returning. He loved the look of it, but for the price, the quality was severely lacking. The seams were loose and you could move the whole top portion with a light press. The wireless charging tech wasn't up to date either, faster options are available now. A watch charging option would also be a nice upgrade, you would still need a separate charge for that. Overall just pricey and plenty of small ways to improve. Also, was cheaper sold by the company on amazon than their own website.
I have the eye masks and the Instant Angel moisturizer. The eye masks are lovely for a longer skincare routine, and I also use them to catch fallout when doing my eyeshadow and hydrate my undereyes at the same time. Instant Angel has been a game changer for my very dry skin. It is an amazing year round moisturizer that never feels too heavy. I have also tried Deliverance back when they first launched and didn't see too much change in my skin, however my skin doesn't seem to love niacinamide. I may give it another try now that I use stronger retinol products to see if it helps with irritation.
I have had an away carry on suitcase for several years and am still really enjoying it. I travel with it a few times a year and it has held up better than my previous hardcases. I have the soft pocket on the outside which is a game changer. The compression feature and laundry bag are great. I don't use the battery pack too much and some airlines make you take it out before it goes in the overhead bin. It can get stuck if you overstuff the suitcase. There's a lot more options on the market now than when I bought it, but I still think it's a solid contender.
I am an unashamed Warby stan. I have several pairs of their glasses and sunglasses. My insurance works with them, so they are an easy choice in that sense, but I also buy pairs outside of my insurance benefits since they are pretty affordable and I can use my HSA. They are not as cheap as some other online eyewear retailers, but I generally think the quality reflects that. I have pairs that are several years old that are still holding up well. I personally live close enough to a few of their retail locations that I go try on pairs in person rather than doing the home try ons, but I have in the past and enjoyed it. My only complaint is sometimes the glasses need some adjustment when you receive them but that's a risk with any online eyewear.
We have one of the wood fired ovens. My husband is celiac, so we make exclusively gluten free pizzas. The Caputo Fioreglut flour is a must for making GF pizza dough. There is a definite learning curve, especially with getting the pizza to not stick to the peel, so a few practice runs are recommended. We found that olive oil is more effective than extra flour for preventing sticking with GF dough. Once you get the hang of it though, it makes an excellent and authentic tasting pizza!
Could be easier to clean.
Absolutely obsessed with Baggu! I have several of their reusable bags, they fold up very compact so I keep them in my purse and always have them when I need it. I was always the person who forgot my bags when I went grocery shopping but not anymore. The standard size bags also hold so much, the cashiers are always impressed. The fabric is extremely durable. I have a few of their puffy cases for my laptop and sunglasses which are also very useful. Very reasonable price points too.
Pleasantly surprised by these pans. We've been using them about for about six months and cook pretty much daily. They've held up great, are nonstick, are heavy and well built, and clean easily. We have the yellow color. The cabinet holders are a very nice touch. I will say they are very pricy for the size of the set, but we don't have to supplement with many other pieces for a functional kitchen. We replaced a much bigger nonstick set with these and I don't miss any of the extra pieces from that set. We also got a great black Friday deal through another vendor which helped. Interested to see how they continue to perform long term, but so far so good.
The saucepan is our least used piece because it's kind of an awkward size. A bit big for heating up sauce or a can of something, but a bit small for cooking pasta for more than one person (or gf pasta since you need more water/it's foamier). I wish they sold each pan individually and maybe offered one more smaller saucepan. I don't love the handles on the lids, they're kind of hard to grip with a pot holder, but I don't use them frequently enough to make it a big deal. The lid holder is also too big to hang in our cabinet so we have to lay it flat.
