In honour of this month’s editorial theme, the STYLE Desk weighed in on the #NewYearFaves they’ve carried into 2021. “Moving Forward” carries so much more weight than the literal definition leads on – after a nightmarish 2020, healthy and introspective routines are setting the pace for a brighter 12 months. You can find this month’s editor picks below.
If you try any of the #NewYearFaves listed, let us know in the comments! We can’t wait to hear from you.
Legend Planner PRO
“My friend sent me this planner at the end of 2020 and it has been the perfect companion for my Type-A personality/love of agendas. It lets you track weekly habits, think through small and long-term goals, and it has also got me thinking about what I am truly passionate about!” – Elise Gasbarrino, Editor-in-Chief

Cup of Té Ceremonial Organic Matcha
“In need of a matcha restock, I ordered the Ceremonial Organic Matcha from Cup of Té and I could not be more pleased. Straight from Uji, Kyoto (a.k.a the birthplace of Japanese matcha), #LeadingLady Taylor Lindsay-Noel really hit the nail on the head with this one. They say the more vivid the matcha, the better the quality, and the Ceremonial Organic Matcha is the brightest, grassiest green. Plus, if you’re wanting to try matcha for the first time, Taylor offers a Matcha Whisk Bundle that gives you all the tools to make the perfect cup.” – Anastasia Barbuzzi, Digital Editor

Maybe You Should Talk to Someone: A Therapist, HER therapist, and Our Lives Revealed
“I came across this book when its author was on a podcast. I have always been interested in how therapy allows us to discover things about ourselves. I’m a few chapters in and a few things have already ‘clicked’.” – Elise Gasbarrino, Editor-in-Chief
Nike Run Club App
“I’ve always enjoyed running and I recently started using the Nike Run Club App to better track my distance and pace. It’s also fun to join with a partner or friend – my boyfriend and I can see each other’s stats and cheer one another on everyday. For new runners, there’s guided runs too! I’m currently on track to complete a 50 kilometre challenge for January – the perfect way to kick off the New Year.” – Anastasia Barbuzzi, Digital Editor

Genuine Health Vegan Probiotic
“This year I hopped on the bandwagon of balancing my gut health. Though I typically eat fresh vegetables, fruits and wholesome grains, I know my gut is a little out of whack. This vegan probiotic creates a healthy gut flora that balances the trillions of bacteria within the body’s ecosystem. Each capsule delivers up to 10-times the bacteria in our guts for a little extra boost.” – Melaina Gasbarrino, Integrated Marketing Specialist

Their sonic electric toothbrushes are battery-powered, which means no wires or bulky chargers. Plus, they come in a variety of sleek colours including rose gold and matte black.
