  • I must remember to hit record.

  • So I'm filming at some sit down video is just because it gives me a lot more freedom.

  • Thio make my blog's extra good.

  • Basically, because I'm not actually that interesting on one thing I found when I was doing loved Miss last year was boring.

  • Really boring on.

  • I don't actually have enough interesting stuff in my life to block five days a week, so I'm making videos.

  • That means I could make myself look for interesting that I am so inside secret that Andi might want to write that one down.

  • But I am in my dressing room today.

  • We'll see what we got here.

  • Build.

  • Okay, so I'm in my dressing room today.

  • I'm filming a video that I really have been thinking about filming, and I filmed a couple of times in different ways, and they've never gone live.

  • So this way, I think it's gonna be best what I wanted to stop doing.

  • Well, let me give you the back story.

  • So few months within this year.

  • Last year it was last year.

  • I think it was We went to an event with th d on dhe myself.

  • Victoria Jamie.

  • Generally, we'll stay up quite late.

  • And we were talking about Amazon.

  • Okay, If he is here now, then this is an Amazon video, and we were in absolute hysterics talking about what we buy on Amazon.

  • And it was just so funny.

  • We were all talking about videos and Amazon videos and things like that.

  • And what I want to do moving forward is like monthly what I've been buying on Amazon.

  • Because where I live, we don't have a village shop.

  • We can't just, like, pop out.

  • And this is like 10 15 minutes down the road.

  • So what I tend to do is I had things to my Amazon cart or to my Amazon like day order on dhe things, air delivered on one day.

  • And it's kind of like my little I needed that.

  • And it comes on the same day, and it's just really, really handy.

  • So I find Amazon really, really useful.

  • When I talk about Amazon, I get a lot of questions because I buy beauty products from Amazonas.

  • Well, people are like, Oh, I thought they were fake.

  • Amazons had a massive shakeup recently, and it's kind of become pretty much the place to go to get things quickly on dhe I If I run out of something that I didn't know that I didn't have any in stock or I needed a little bit more.

  • I go to Amazon mix.

  • I can usually get things super quickly on Dhe.

  • It's been a bit of a game changer, especially where we live, But they also got just the most random of stuff ever.

  • And I find myself buying things that I didn't even know I needed.

  • That just changed the game 40 so monthly, I'm gonna be doing a little bit of an Amazon hole with you.

  • But these are things that I think are quite the source.

  • I'm not going to show you any crap.

  • Well, I mean, that's subjective, but I'm not gonna be showing you things that are, like, wasteful or anything like that.

  • I'm gonna be showing you things that are useful and hopefully lovely items that you might be looking for.

  • Basically, that's a technical term.

  • Lovely items that you might be looking for a new set up in my dressing room as well as I wanted you to get the full, you know before, before you.

  • You're like a weather lady.

  • I can visit medical bag and this is your bag on the mind your shoes, anyway.

  • So with all of that rambling aside, if you are new to my channel on, you haven't come across me before.

  • My name is Lydia on.

  • I've been on YouTube for about four years now on I love it.

  • I love connecting with you guys and I also log all of the time on I hope you will join me for more videos, more Amazon holes, more other kinds of holes, more vlogs What everyday life here on my channel.

  • So if you haven't hit the subscribe button yet, please do.

  • Because it's such a good indicator for me when kind of doing my content, whether you guys like it.

  • Whether you like me, you know.

  • So anyway, I mean, it's around me, because how long live around?

  • Five minutes.

  • So without further ado, let's get into the Amazon hole with a New year on January time, you get a new kind of that.

  • Let's stop all all that's ramble for another minutes.

  • No.

  • Generally, I always have a new lease of life.

  • Only if I just had two weeks off Christmas.

  • But I heard changes in place, and I'm quite good at sticking t them and giving myself a little bit more boundaries.

  • But I'm definitely taking more of like a holistic a ll self care approach to things and things that gonna help me make life easier.

  • Just little things like that.

  • So the first thing that I wanted to do was to get back into yoga, and I could not believe it when I saw that they had.

  • They had, I think is the life form.

  • I don't know how to say this, but it's the life form yoga mat on our pops.

  • Um, reviews.

  • It's actually really heavy for yoga, MMA, but I pop star reviews that I read in the description What's down below?

  • But also when I tell people that I got this year and never have I had so many messages about a yoga mat, people like this is game changing on.

  • The thing I like about this is it has measurements on it, so it's really easy to know when you're putting your hands and feet in the right positions, you down dogs and things like that.

  • But I wanted to take yoga a little bit more seriously, and I've been doing younger home.

  • Onda also goes classes as well, like meditation class and stuff like that.

  • So I thought, what better motivator than investing in a really good Matt?

  • Because my old Matt had, like, paint all over It was really good, those real squishy one.

  • But yeah, it was just a bit.

  • It kind of has been back on getting it out.

  • Okay, when I was going to the yoga, she's excited.

  • I had used it to paint my bedroom.

  • I probably had in our old house.

  • So I've seen this yoga mat on net support a years ago.

  • I don't think they have it anymore.

  • But when I saw it on Amazon, I was looking for a young man.

  • I was like, Oh, they got the booty yoga.

  • So I ordered it on Dhe.

  • So far, I've used it a couple of times using it tonight as well.

  • They have a year class with my best friend on DDE with my best men like you don't know who she is.

  • But this is what I'm gonna be taking with that.

  • This is heavy.

  • So I didn't want it like, you know, to be carried under my arm.

  • So I needed to get well, actually comes with a bag, but Bag doesn't have any individual pockets with it.

  • So it's great for like, storage.

  • But if I want to be like my car keys in there or my bank card was minutes or something like that, I needed something to know me better.

  • And I saw that Karen had, like, this all over the shoulder bag, and I just looked on Amazon.

  • Andi, I wanted black because I'm just not really, you know, I'm not a colorful person, evidently, but I found it in black on had this little pouch in front.

  • They also had a zit pockets in that moment, my driving license.

  • I've also got some concealer in there, some nasty Encina absolute loose chewing gum, which is pretty great spur on dhe.

  • That's why uses force.

  • I put my my yoga mat in there in this main pocket here.

  • This was about I think it's about £7.

  • It's just sort of like a campus e linen feeling fabric, my summary bust.

  • Listen thick, but then, with this this little couch in front and then the little zit pouches Well, to put things like keys and change and stuff like that.

  • So I picked up both of those to help me on my new yoga journey.

  • And I am very, very happy with both of them, very happy.

  • And I was just over the moon to have to find that young man again confined to partake.

  • But I found it that so those those things.

  • Now I've got a little box from Amazon.

  • I popped loads of stuff in here.

  • Thus up in these books is my new water bottles.

  • Now I scoured Amazon.

  • Four new wards, photos that he might have seen over promise I was using this kind of orangey one.

  • I don't even know where I found it that it was in our habits, I think adding centre and she had given it.

  • But I really wanted to get a good strong is that one starts leaking.

  • I wanted one that I could use in using use.

  • I also wanted one that was leaked because that would mean he's 750 million.

  • So I can track how much water I'm drinking more often.

  • I also wanted one, like, clean properly on this came with all of the attachments to shuriken Clean Straw also has a straw.

  • I don't like water bottles that you have to sort drink that you have to sort of drink like that because I end up going down myself.

  • These closing sort of straw contraption, Eo Jin ee flips are brilliant.

  • I also wanted one that had a clip so that when I am on the bike wasn't back to my bike.

  • Doesn't actually have a drinks and click onto my waistband on it.

  • Saved on there like that then obviously it's got all of the things in here.

  • Thio clean the little bottle thing, which I think is great as well.

  • There's got the little thing to go up this drawer to clean that out.

  • Isn't another clips onto something?

  • I know this is actually get into the bottle.

  • I cleaned out.

  • How good is that?

  • Very, very snazzy.

  • It also has markers on the side of it.

  • There was once I had, like motivations.

  • Each is on them.

  • I wasn't really down with that.

  • So this one has 1000 milliliters at the top.

  • So that's a liter.

  • But it also tracks all the way down inside there.

  • So I got one for myself.

  • But I also got one for me because he doesn't drink enough water.

  • So I got in the back.

  • One comes into let myself go black one.

  • The are just the most useful things have.

  • So I found this on Amazon here about loan pounds each.

  • Andi, I'm gonna crack my nose in today and start using it.

  • He wasn't my friend.

  • Do everything.

  • Who d a child?

  • So next up, one of the things that I've been doing more off.

  • I hope to have more time to do this in 2020.

  • But I definitely happened, but I definitely had time of crisis.

  • And I did a load of batch cooking, and I got to learn to kind of tools that I needed a little bit more to make that cooking easy of myself.

  • More efficient on dhe.

  • Just just more doable on quicker.

  • So I set about getting myself a few new cooking utensils for my batch.

  • Cook.

  • First up, I've got myself actually myself 12 of these.

  • I thought I didn't show you were 12.

  • Just tell you about 12.

  • 36.

  • These are little mini tough aware not single use, which is good that easy.

  • Knock food containers on the packet.

  • 6 500 mil on.

  • These are great for individual portions if you make stews.

  • Or Carrie told me how to make it to Jean anything.

  • Basically, I could pop individual portions in here.

  • And if I'm not home, Alex, take one out on let it defrost on dhe.

  • We both take two out and let them defrost.

  • We got up to Mawr defrosting downstairs.

  • I thought that what really, really wants to actually find the smaller the tough aware the better is I got a few dishes in there at the moment that if I was to defrost them, we probably have to eat it for a few days in a row.

  • So I treated myself to some new tough where, and I'm really happy with those.

  • So I got these, obviously, on Amazon on dhe, just easy.

  • Nothing too fancy uneasily label them as well on dhe super handy.

  • The next thing I wouldn't myself.

  • Whoa, these bad boys.

  • So when preparing shoes and things like that, you do a lot peeling a lot cutting vegetables, and I find the whole thing a bit of a fast these little contraptions hook onto your drawers of your kitchen.

  • Now make sure that they fit because my drawers are a little bit so I have to do alongside of my drawers.

  • But you basically take all of the peelings and ends of the veg and just skip me to hear and then stick into your compost bin.

  • So I've got two of those really, really had just makes like it just makes clearing up a little bit smoother.

  • And I love that anything that makes life.

  • So I thought that these were great.

  • I think they're about, like, £5 or something like that.

  • But see the handy.

  • If you're gonna be doing things like that, will just anything in your kitchen, you can just hook him on the side when you're opening, things screwed everything in today.

  • You have to if you have to do recycling like we do where we live.

  • You could like plastics and recyclables in this one and then dumped him into the correct so very, very highly, also good for dressing rooms.

  • You could hit him on the drawers in your dressing rooms and keep like cotton ball or straight nose or hair dryers and just saw keeping their ready to use get different colors off course.

  • So that was handy.

  • That was handy for my new batch cooking abilities.

  • The next kitchen essential that I ordered Waas some new silicone spatulas.

  • I don't ever remember that Carrie ordered me a silicone spatula on dhe.

  • It was a spoon.

  • So it was like this, but blue on.

  • I wanted to get bigger ones, so I would have expected three.

  • These ones came in black, Which little bit, my ass?

  • That dick, but really nice on dhe.

  • Flexible, easy to use.

  • They got different sorts sizes in there.

  • I'm just really good thinking.

  • I've been doing a little bit more baking as well on Dhe, making scraping down sides off my father mix and think about that a lot easier because I've been making some flapjacks on some tools on.

  • It's been really, really fun.

  • I've enjoyed it a lot, so I've been looking for a good neutral colored spatula that I can introduce you to my kitchen and cooking abilities.

  • So just a quick, easy one, that one on top of this.

  • Another thing.

  • My kitchen.

  • So there's more like cooking things that obviously when you are cooking things, you are using things up.

  • So I wanted to get a magnetic no pad for the French, basically, so that if we need to beginning up on Dhe, maybe we haven't realized or someone else's realized they can note it down on this pad, which I like because it was neutral.

  • There was a lot of neutral ones on Amazon.

  • This one says Groceries on dhe, which I like is what's black and white.

  • And you can take things off just noting down.

  • And it comes with a little magnetic stick, everything, and you just stick where it works best for you and then put on the side on the front of your fridge on you're able to note everything down.

  • You know, you could also have a list on your phone, which we have one of those as well.

  • But this is for you know, this moments when you're like cool and it means that we can check this.

  • We could see on there and see what we need to pick up so very, very handy if you're prone to forgetting things on the shopping list like we are like a weekly food shop is a military operation in our house because Carrie Cooke's lunches on dhe we could have dinner time and everyone's using coffees and people doing these things in this thing, and we never know what we've used.

  • So you have to like No, I only know things down, but then we also have to physically go through the cover to be like, well, to be running out off.

  • So it takes like two or three people to go through on do our food shop, which is a bit of a lake.

  • But it's way is anyone's body tips for making that bit easier more streamlined the comments down below.

  • Next thing that I purchased on Amazon Waas some nutritional least flakes.

  • Now I am a self confessed cheesehead.

  • I love cheese.

  • I love it absolutely love cheese.

  • But I appreciate the fact that I love cheese does not outweigh that.

  • I love a minerals more so I've mentioned previously that I'm trying to make changes and we already don't have milk in our house.

  • We use dairy free butter on.

  • We are making changes slowly but surely as and when we feel comfortable doing them on I'm currently looking for a cheese substitute that I can use more regularly on dhe.

  • Hopefully, one day I could move away from.

  • I'm the kind of person that when I go to other people's houses when I go to restaurants, I don't try no inconvenience people.

  • So I'll try things or eat things there.

  • I wouldn't necessarily eat at home.

  • That's like what works well for me.
