Chilly's Bottles | £25 (opens in new tab)

Chilly's Bottles | £25, now £13 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
I am so glad to see Chilly's water bottles on sale. I am a big fan and have two of their original bottles and two tumblers. They keep your drink cool for 24 hours, or coffee hot for 12 and they are such a money saver when you are out and about. I never have to buy a cold drink and save moolah on spenny train station coffees by turning up with my own in my Chilly's Tumbler (opens in new tab).

The patterned bottles are down to just £13 (opens in new tab) today and the plain/ombre bottles (opens in new tab) are even cheaper at just a tenner! 

De'Longhi Scultura | £229.99 (opens in new tab)

De'Longhi Scultura | £229.99 £134.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
I already have this user-friendly espresso machine, but if I didn't I would be snatching one now it has 41% off an is just £134.99. In just 60 cups I would make back what I pay for my go-to coffee shop order.

It has a steam wand so as well as making fresh espresso, you can froth your milk for a cappuccino or latte. It has limited settings, but that makes it really easy to use. Just switch it on, prime and it is ready to go – no worries about pressure as it delivers 15 bar, just right for a rich espresso with the perfect crema.

This handheld vacuum screams: 'I've got my life together' It's sleek, chic, and the jewelly navy colorway looks like it's made for an art-deco like scheme. Outside of the house, it's great to tidy up those shards of croissant crumbs in the car, or chips that the kids have crushed in the back seat.

In my eyes, this is the only speaker you need in your life. It is completely waterproof (good for days at the beach and shower singalongs) and it's absolutely huge, with excellent sound quality. I took it to a festival and now it lives in my bathroom!

Highly rated by me as being one of the best robot vacuum cleaners out there, the M8 Pro can simultaneously vacuum and mop your floors in one sweep. You can control it via an app on your phone, and it can be scheduled to clean on certain days and at certain times. Better yet? It even takes itself back to charge and it empties its own bin. Now with almost £150 off, this is the cheapest price I've ever seen this robot vacuum.

Safe to say I have been struggling in this heat. My south-facing bedroom with huge windows is glorious most of the time, but when the temperatures rise I honestly can't stand being in there. So I've been waiting for Amazon Prime day to invest in a good quality fan and this one is the biggest bargain I've found. It's big enough to keep my whole room cool and I'm so excited to see what a difference it makes.

ZENS Glass Bud Vase Set of 3 | £28.99, now £22.39 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
I am a huge fan of flowers and I nearly always have a bouncing bunch of blooms on the kitchen table. I've recently discovered the joy of cutting down flowers to fit into smaller bud vases, and dotting them all around the house so I get burst of joy in random places, like at my desk or in the bathroom. This set of glass vases will be perfect for just that, and I love the arched, curvy shape too.
