Heather’s January Hot Picks [PHOTOS/LIST]
The New Year is in full swing, and 2013 for me is going to be all about trying new things, and finding ways to make everyday life a little more convenient. I've been experimenting with everything from this nifty banana slicer to new mascara.
--I'm wild about this creamy Citron, Honey & Coriander hand cream from Crabtree & Evelyn. The smell is invigorating and soothing, and the lotion sinks into every cuticle and last for hours.
--These days I'm all about lipstick that I can slick on without a mirror. Neutrogena Moisture Smooth Color Stick makes on-the-go application a breeze. The sticks are just pigmented enough, but feel soft like a lip balm. Tons of fruity colors to choose from and they leave a behind a pretty gleam. Like a big kid crayon! Plus they're scented!
--I've been a DiorShow Mascara devotee for as long as I can remember. But I've just recently added Hypnose Star by Lancome to my beauty arsenal. The wand is flat but pointed like an arrow. Once I mastered the application, I was giddy at the results. Long, lush lashes in one swipe. Perfect for day or night.
--I completely swooned over this limited edition ceramic travel tumbler by the designer Rodarte for Starbucks. It's such a pretty and artsy way of carting around my hot tea and coffee. I love the way the silvery cube design picks up light when its sitting in my car or on my desk. I even got the matching cup sleeve.
--Of course I had to have something to put into my new tumbler, and these Honeybush Mandarin & Orange tea bags from Twinnings are becoming my go-to. They're bursting with flavor, but calming at the same time because they're decaffeinated. I add a little extra honey and make this my midday pick-me-up when I've been talking alot!
--And then there's the Hutzler 571 banana slicer. I'm lazy in the kitchen, and this makes fast work when I'm preparing oatmeal or a smoothie. So simple, so inexpensive, and now a must-have for rushed mornings.
