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.
