March Amazon Favorites

Rounding up my favorite items from Amazon this month…

Post Antibiotics Protocol

Matt recently finished up a round of antibiotics following his Mohs surgery so I’ve been making him a post-antibiotics protocol to restore his gut health! Before I go on, I am not against antibiotics. In fact, I am extremely grateful for them! However, while they are necessary for fighting off bad bacteria, they unfortunately kill your good bacteria too which can in turn can cause a leaky gut.

So to heal and seal his gut lining, I’ve been following Dr. Daryl Gioffre’s post-antibiotics protocol:

In a small bowl (I’ve been using a medicine cup), mix 1 TBSP of Sovereign Silver Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol (for immune support) and 1 TBSP Liquid Aloe Vera (to reduce inflammation) together. Drink on an empty stomach (30 minutes before food, or 90 minutes after food) 3 times a day for 2 weeks. I should also note that this mixture is tasteless!

I Never Thought I’d Grate My Own Cheese…

But here we are.

Recently I’ve started shredding blocks of cheese over buying the pre-shredded bags of cheese. It started a few months ago when I wanted to uplevel our homemade pizza nights with fresh mozzarella. Our IKEA hand grater was laughable and finally Matt said “if we’re going to be doing this weekly, we’re going to need to get an actual cheese grater!” So I did some research and found an awesome one. And I am shocked by how much I love it. I use it for so much more than cheese too. The grater comes with 3 interchangeable blades (that are easy to snap into place and also very easy to clean afterward) for slicing/shredding vegetables, fruits, nuts, etc. I especially love the thinly sliced cucumber for salads!

But back to cheese for a second. I’m not telling you to start shredding all your own cheese because I 1000000% appreciate the convenience of pre-shredded cheese. However, I never realized how much better a block of cheese tastes versus pre-shredded — and that’s because the pre-shredded cheese contains more additives and preservatives to make it last longer. Next time you’re at the store, compare the back of the bag next to a block. And you can actually taste the difference!

OK, now back to the grater. So here’s my tip. Buy a few blocks of cheese you regularly use and shred them all at once. Each block takes like 90 seconds to shred. And it’s actually quite fun too! Then pop the extra bags of cheese you don’t need right away in the freezer to use for later (make sure to use freezer bags).

Shoe Organizer Boxes

I shared these storage containers that I love for organizing my shoes in my closet. They are easy to assemble, stack together nicely, sturdy, and are transparent so you can see all your shoes. They are also puppy-proof if you have dog that loves shoes!

Spring Dress

I’ve seen this pretty floral dress from Amazon floating around Instagram and bought it! There are a lot of great details about this dress — a beautiful neckline, fun puffy sleeves and it’s offered in 11 gorgeous prints! If you order soon, you can wear it for Easter! It runs slightly large, but I would only size down if you’re in between sizes. The listing also says it’s a maxi dress, but it’s more like a midi for taller girls and a great maxi length for shorter girls.

A Fun (& Useful) Hostess Gift

This is the hostess gift I brought to my girlfriend who hosted us for a dinner part last weekend — Maldon Sea Salt Flakes and a beautiful Marble Salt Cellar! This exact gift was brought to my Favorite Things Party two years ago by my friend April. And it has been one of my favorite things and a go-to hostess gift! We use the sea salt flakes daily and sprinkle it on just about everything — veggies, peanut butter toast, cocktail rim, and so much more!

Recent Product Refills

A few of my favorite things I’ve recently repurchased…

Lume Acidified Body Wash

I gifted this last year at my Favorite Things Party! This body wash works better than soap and is pH optimized to control odor – perfect for showers after a sweaty workout!

Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Mask

I love, love, love this mask and have been using it 1-2 times per week for several years now! This intensive skin resurfacer mask exfoliates with pumpkin enzyme that smells heavenly. It really makes a difference in the texture of my skin.

Isle of Paradise Self Tan Drops

A product I’ve been refilling since 2021! I use these tanning drops for my face every 3’ish days. I just add a generous dropper to my moisturizer and apply it all over my face and neck — it’s a gorgeous glow color!! I wear medium during the cooler months and dark during summer!
