You guys, January 2016 came and went. Just like that. Umm…what?! If this is any indication of how the rest of the year will go, I need to find a pause button pronto!
And on top of all that, I have some great January picks to share! So without further ado…
Par’s Picks – January 2016
Garbage bowls – All credit goes to Rachael Ray for this genius idea (at least in my opinion). Basically, instead of walking back and forth as I’m chopping veggies and generally making a mess in the kitchen, I put all my scraps in a separate bowl that sits next to my cutting board and throw them away in one go. Stupidly simple but LIFE CHANGING!
Tea tree oil – It’s no secret that I love tea tree oil. It has honestly helped transform my skin from super duper acne prone to once in a while acne prone. It’s been a part of my routine for so long that I kind of take it for granted. After a little extra sugar consumption in December, my skin freaked out a bit. And the only thing that helped calm it down was regular tea tree oil application. LOVE this stuff! P.S. Vishnu’s also a huge fan. In fact, he gets super upset when I take it with me on my trips and leave him with nothing!
My Kindle – Since being introduced to Overdrive, my love for the Kindle has quadrupled! If you are a fellow book worm and don’t own this device, get on it! It’s worth the investment. Aside from making reading books so easy, the Kindle helps eliminate clutter. And this is super important when you live with someone who wants to keep every book/folder from med school!
Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Mascara – Last month, I blogged about a mascara that didn’t quite live up to the hype. Well, this month I’m sharing a new one that does…in a big way! I received this mascara from Marc Jacobs Beauty (and Influenster), and I LOVE it. It really creates voluminous, rich, thick lashes. And my favorite part is that it stays put and doesn’t flake!
Jaybird X2 Sport Wireless Bluetooth Headphones – And last but certainly not least, we have these wireless headphones and my birthday present from Vishnu. You guys! I’m not a gadget person by any means, and I probably wouldn’t have bought myself this particular product, but these headphones are a game changer. I’ve been running with them and have completed a few strength workouts as well. For the first time ever, I don’t have to deal with a long cord getting in the way. I particularly love how snug and comfortable they feel in my ears. And the set up was a breeze. I did it all by myself (Vishnu wasn’t even home when I figured it all out) – a HUGE accomplishment for me!
If you’re looking for the perfect gift to give the fitness fanatic in your life (and it could even be you!), these headphones are it. Like I said, they are a game changer! And also, how cool is the case?!
And there you have it, my January picks. Thank you for reading!
