Anyway, now that we’re in a new decade, it’s time to get back into the swing of things and that means diving into a brand new #EditorPicks. This month, our fabulous #TeamE7 is sharing all sorts of exciting newness from skincare and fashion, to cookbooks, and everything in between.

“2020 promises many new things to come, but, personally, I’m just ecstatic about the comeback of my favourite dress from the decade past. This isn’t just any “dress” this is THE dress that I’ve worn every summer, packed for every vacation, slept in on numerous occasions, worn throughout my pregnancy and even as my first real outfit venturing out postpartum. Sure, it may, at its core, essentially be a muumuu, but that’s just part of the genius of Erin Kleinberg when she was producing her eponymous clothing line. Now, through her creative branding agency, Metier Collective, she has softly launched Out of Office NYC to bring back that oh-so-coveted dress from her now defunct line, that is so deeply loved by stylish women around the globe. I was lucky enough to get my hands on one in leopard print, but needless to say, I want every version available. So how do you get one? Send them a DM, honey.” – @GracieCarroll

“I gifted Gabriel Bernstein’s new oracle deck, The Universe Has Your Back to my sister for Christmas and we BOTH fell in love with it. It’s got 52 hand-painted cards, each one with a little uplifting wisdom message. You just shuffle the deck, pick one, and receive a message you can take forward with you. It’s the perfect compliment to a morning routine, or when you just want a grounding moment to get in touch with your intuition.” – @Kait_Fowlie

“At 30 years old I’ll say I’ve gotten a pretty good hold over my skin but I could never find something to get rid of pesky under the skin bumps AKA closed comedones, especially around my chin and jaw line. Personally, my acne problems are a result of suffocated skin and it requires exfoliation (both manual and chemical). This polishing gel cleanser from Clear Clinical does both and still leaves my skin feeling moisturized, and crazy soft. It is formulated for adult acne so there is even some retinol to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. I’ve been using it for 3 months and have gone relatively blemish free aside from my pesky hormonal break-outs. For best results you really need to massage gently for two… yes TWO whole minutes to get the best results. And don’t forget to take your make-up off with a remover, and wash your damn make up brushes! Heres to better skin in 2020.” – @ShaeleighAfton

“As someone who is transitioning from being a pescatarian to a vegetarian, I found that when choosing alternatives to meat and fish I was often filling up solely on vegetables or other foods and not getting the proper nutrients to stay energized and full. This is why I quickly became obsessed with this cookbook by Desiree Neilson because not only does it teach you how to approach eating more are anti-inflammatory and nutrient-dense plants, but it also teaches you how to create incredible meals that support your immune system, gut health, fight disease, reduce stress, and restore balance in your life.” – @AinsleySmithy

“Like most people I know, I find it hard to keep New Year’s resolutions so I usually end up not making any. But this year, I know I can make a big difference just by becoming a bit more intentional with my budgeting and finances. So many people I follow on social media are planning a low-buy or no-buy year and while I already feel pretty good about my spending habits, I know that I could benefit from better tracking and a firm (not flexible) budget. This month, I’ll be adding an app to help me organize and track expenses and to keep tabs on how my budget is doing month-to-month to my roster of organizational tools. It’s not new, but I’m using Mint, and so far, so good. My actual editor’s pick? A minimalist January (and hopefully year) with more intentional spending habits—I highly recommend it.” – @AlxDonaldson

“While it’s not the newest skincare product on the block, I’ve recently discovered Glossier’s Futuredew and once you do too, you’ll understand why. Not only does this oil/serum hybrid is super nourishing and results in the most gorgeous glow that’s never greasy. This baby is meant to be the last step in your skincare regime and it looks absolutely beautiful under makeup as it doesn’t interfere with the application. Even better is that it’s vegan, cruelty-free, and non-comedogenic.” – @BlairAlex

“Who else hates shopping for tights in the wintertime? Well, I’m about to blow your mind with Sheertex, the makers of the unbreakable pantyhose. Recently, they teamed up with my favourite Housewife (and yours) Roxy Earle to launch an exclusive line of “All That Glitters”. The diamond-encrusted tights cost $131 are available in various colours including raspberry and black include the signature Sheertex Knit Technology and have a control top built-in. I have been testing them out since the holidays and I am OBSESSED. Well worth the price and the hype.” – @AmaScriver
