Amazon / InStyle

Another long weekend has arrived, and in my mind that means two things: an extra day of alarm-free living and, of course, an excuse to go shopping. To no surprise, Amazon is celebrating the holiday weekend with an epic Presidents Day sale, and I took the liberty of cherry-picking the eight best deals, from $10. 

As a shopping editor who legitimately spends eight hours a day on Amazon, I’m feeling pretty confident about my fashion, beauty, and home finds. The following list includes an Ugg sweater, CeraVe skincare, Reebok sneakers, and so much more for up to 61 percent off. Just beware: Deals this good won’t last for long, so I’d make your purchases sooner rather than later.

Sunzel Flare Leggings

Amazon Sunzel Flare Leggings Black


Buy on Amazon $50 $20

Offering the biggest discount on the list, the Sunzel flare leggings are now just $20. I’ve recently gotten back into the yoga pants obsession of my youth, so when I saw this 61-percent-off sale, I immediately pressed “Add to Cart.” The best-selling leggings have a flattering cross-front design, and they’re made from “buttery soft” material with the “perfect amount of stretch,” according to a reviewer. Catch me wearing them around my apartment with an oversized hoodie and slippers, as well as out to run errands with a simple sweater and cozy boots.

The Drop James Quilted Jacket

The Drop Women's James Quilted Jacket


Buy on Amazon $80 $40

Another cart-worthy fashion deal, this quilted jacket from The Drop is perfect for in-between weather, and it’s now just $40. The lightweight, collarless coat comes in three colors — black, olive, and navy — each with contrasting tortoise-shell buttons down the front and two foldover pockets. Plus, a shopper said it has an “oversized look,” so you can easily layer a sweater underneath. As we head into the most confusing weather months of the year, I’ll be wearing this jacket on repeat. 

Julep Eyeshadow 101 Crème to Powder Eyeshadow Stick

Amazon Prime Day Julep Eyeshadow 101 Crème to Powder Waterproof Eyeshadow Stick


Buy on Amazon $16 $10

Moving on to the beauty section, I’ve been eyeing the Julep eyeshadow stick for a while, and now that it’s $10, I have no choice but to finally order it. I’m a big fan of creamy makeup sticks in general, but what makes this one stand out is that it has a built-in smudger, so you don’t even need to use a brush — talk about an easy application process. Not to mention, a reviewer confirmed it “stays put all day without fading or creasing.” Sign me up. 

Paddywax Santorini Collection Greek-Inspired Candle

Paddywax Scented Candles Santorini Collection


Buy on Amazon $32 $19

My Amazon hauls are never complete without a home fragrance, and this Paddywax Greek-inspired candle is the winner du jour. It has notes of citrus, roses, and sandalwood, creating a “fresh and serene” scent, per a reviewer. What really caught my attention, though, is the candle’s vase-like vessel that I’ll use as decor in my home, even after the wax burns out. It’s the perfect way to liven up your space for less than $20.
