These are the products we can’t live without. The Studio 5 staff breaks down the hottest finds from 2012.
Many of Studio 5’s favorite things are now available on andruby.com.
Simply Vera Vera Wang Sleepwear
Simply Vera Wang sleepwear is a dreamy end to your day! Made of pure butter – oops, we mean ultrasoft microfleece – these one-of-a-kind printed PJ sets are the perfect gift for yourself, or someone special. We love the grosgrain trim, bow accents, and notch collar that finish the soft & sophisticated look. The only pajamas Studio 5’s Brooke Walker sleeps in!
Mossimo Ona Ballet Flat
My favorite flats this year, that I can’t seem to buy enough of, are the Mossimo Ona Ballet Flat from the one and only Target. I love these because they are so comfortable. I’ve been a dancer all my life and because of that I have funky heels. These flats come with some “give” in the back, so I never get that red/irritated back of my heel when I buy new ones. They come in red, leopard, snake skin, black and my favorite pair look like they are from Guatemala. They are a darling tribal print perfect for summer. Oh and I love that the toe isn’t too round or pointy. It’s just right!
Lululemon Studio Pant
These pants were designed to keep you comfortable on the way to and from the yoga studio. The two -way stretch and drawcord at the hem makes it so you can cinch up the legs and turn these pants into crops! Located in Trolley Square, Park City, or online at Lululemon.com.
Slide Ridge Honey Wine Vinegar
I might just love this honey vinegar more than balsamic vinegar. (That’s saying a lot!) I use it in salad dressings, drizzled on fruit for desserts. You can find it at local grocery stores and specialty food stores. Here’s what’s on the back of the bottle: “Drizzle over ice cream, fruit or cheesecake. Add to your favorite sauces or salad dressing.”
These pop-up garbage cans can be used to help you clean up the holidays. You’re having a holiday party and you know people are going to be wandering around trying to find a garbage can. Your only option was to tie a giant black garbage sack onto a doorknob. Now, you can have instant pop-up garbage cans that can look stylish and then can be thrown away. They have an instant mechanism that allows them to pop up. Some motifs are set up to be a recycling bin, but they have other options that are colorful and stylish.
Eye Kandy Sprinkles
You’ve seen glitter eye shadow on The Voice and Dancing with the Stars. This is what they’re using! You cannot get a bolder look than this. The Eye Kandy Sprinkles are perfect for parties, dance recitals, or just for fun. It’s also used as body glitter because it’s so precise. What makes it even sweeter? It’s a Utah company started by Utah moms.
Project Life Binder $19.99
Project Life Photo Pages$29.99
There are lots of great styles, but “Design A” with horizontal 6″ x 4″ and vertical 3″ x 4″ pockets is my favorite
Project Life Core Kit – Turquoise Edition $29.99
My absolute favorite thing of 2012 is Becky Higgins Project Life. I love memory keeping and journaling and this has simplified how I do it. It has been so rewarding to look back at the year and it’s made me a more grateful person! The main components of Project Life consist of the binder, photo pocket pages and the core kit.
