I appreciate the finer things in life and admit to bougie tendencies at times. I mean, extravagant brunches? Count me in. An extra pair of sunglasses when I’m supposed to be picking out prescription frames? I’ve done that. Where I can get into trouble is when my taste for the finer things is at odds with my bank account balance. Even little things can quickly add up. Thankfully, I’ve got Amazon to turn to when the need to treat myself hits. It’s filled with bougie things that are actually cheap AF, letting me shop to my heart’s content without running into trouble.

Whether I’m looking to amp up the “It” factor of my home or it’s time to add a little bling to my accessory drawer, I can always find just the thing — or things — on Amazon for cheap. Take, for example, this on-trend chunky dome ring that looks like you spent a fortune on its minimalism (it’s only 12 bucks), or this crystal rhinestone ignition ring that delivers the extra impression you didn’t know your car needed (it does). As an added bonus, all of these gotta-get-it items have been tried, reviewed, and recommended by your fellow Amazon shoppers. So, there’s no risk in spoiling yourself with a purchase or two.

Follow along as I share some of my favorite bougie finds.
