Par’s Picks is back but in a different way.  Instead of only sharing my favorite articles, recipes, and blog posts, I’m going to pick some of my favorites from a bunch of different categories and blog about those things on a monthly basis.

Let’s do this!

Par’s Picks – December 2015

Double Chocolate Chip Muffins via The Write Balance – As soon as I saw these muffins on Salma’s blog, I knew I had to make them!  Not only are they healthy and delicious, but they’re super easy to make.  I mean, all you need is a blender!  If you’re a chocolate lover like me, make these – you won’t regret it.

32 Degrees Long Sleeve Shirt – This is essentially an undershirt meant to keep you warm in cold weather.  I’ve been using mine as a workout top.  It’s perfect for those cool Florida runs, and I’m sure it’ll come in handy when we move to Chicago too.

Sonia Kashuk Eye Shadow Palette – This eye shadow palette is literally one of the best makeup products I’ve ever used.  I have semi-oily eyelids so creasing is an issue for me, however, I don’t have to think about that with this palette.  Even after hours of wear, the color is just as rich and pigmented as when I first applied it.  AND it’s totally affordable.  LOVE LOVE LOVE!

Target’s Cartwheel App – If you frequent Target more than you’d like to admit, this app is for you.  Lots of savings on all kinds of products including food, clothing, beauty products, etc. AND the app is easy to navigate.  Win win!

The Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist – My colleague Jas introduced me to this mist.  She uses it throughout the day to moisturize her skin.  I find that it’s actually a great makeup setting spray.  My skin looks so dewy and soft because of this stuff.  And it has a light rose scent.

Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara – I wanted to love this mascara, but I personally found that it didn’t live up to all the hype. First of all, the wand doesn’t comb through the lashes.  Also, the formula itself flakes, feels heavy on the lashes, and is nearly impossible to take off.   Not a fan!

There you have it, my December picks!  I’m really looking forward to making this a regular feature. 🙂
