Couch-to-5K Running App
After a year and a half break from running I decided to lace up my sneakers again. In order to prevent injury and build up miles I downloaded the Couch-to-5K Running App. I love that you can stream your own music through the app while the virtual trainer keeps your runs on track. $2.99 on iTunes.

Bragg Liquid Aminos
One of my favorite kitchen ingredients! Bragg Liquid Aminos, is a liquid protein concentrate that adds a little zip of flavor to foods. My favorite ways to use it: add to vegetables before roasting (broccoli, carrots, zucchini are all good options), use in homemade salad dressings, and it is a staple in my Blackened tofu recipe . Note, this does have a high amount of sodium so adjust your other seasons accordingly. Braggs is available at Whole Foods or other health markets. http://bragg.com/products

Hurom Slow Juicer
I think I bought my last pair of slippers over 5 years ago. All of the support was worn down, the stitching was coming apart. So on Christmas morning when I slipped on a new pair of UGG Dakota Slippers I was in heaven! $100 from uggaustralia.com.

CB2 Marta Barware
From our StyleBlueprint Managing Editor, Amy: In nineteen years of marriage, we’ve broken at least that many glasses in the Norton household, if not more. So this Christmas, my favorite gift was a box full of CB2 drinkware, practical enough for everyday use and nice enough for entertaining. These chic tumblers come in 3 sizes and are painlessly priced from $1.50 – $2.50, which makes refilling an empty cabinet as easy as refilling an empty glass! www.cb2.com
Chanel N°5 Eau Première
Our SB Memphis Editor, Christian, fell for a new fragrance that was in her stocking this year: I wanted to add a new fragrance to my collection for the new year and landed on Chanel N°5 Eau Première, a lighter version of the classic Chanel N°5. It is a soft fragrance, where the original is too strong for me, especially for daytime wear. $64 at Sephora. www.sephora.com
Boscia Soothing Cleansing Cream
I recently tried out boscia’s Soothing Cleansing Cream and my dry, winter skin rejoiced! Instead of the normal face washing routine, you let the product slightly dry on your skin and then gently remove it with a damp washcloth. It really did leave my skin feeling softer! $26 at Ulta. www.ulta.com
