Kate’s Picks: 7 Things I Tried in December and Loved


On December’s Things I Tried and Loved: I am a person who juices now? Plus, a “miracle cream” I didn’t know I needed until I tried it, the show I loved the most last year, and a $50 puffer jacket that makes me feel less like I’m wearing a sleeping bag and more like I’m wearing a trash bag, but in a good way (I swear). 

These are the seven things I loved most in December…

1. Uniqlo Ultra Light Down Shiny Puffer Jacket

on sale for $50

Courtney Grow posted about the sale Uniqlo was having and this brown coat caught my eye. I wanted a cropped puffy coat as an option to switch up my winter looks. This one does not disappoint. I ordered one size up and have found myself grabbing this one often before heading out the door. 

2. Nama J2 Cold Press Juicer


I am SO SO PLEASED! I read about this juicer on The Strategist while researching what option would work best for us. What I love about this model is its hands-free design and that it has a large storage reservoir at the top, so I can prep another batch while the first one moves through the cold-press process.

I have been making two batches a week since this juicer arrived. Clean-up is a breeze if I don’t let the juicer sit for a while before rinsing it out. There are six parts that are all easy to take apart and put back together once dry. I highly recommended this juicer if you have the budget for it.

3. AOZITA Glass Juicing Bottles

$22 for a set of 8

An accessory for my new hobby! These glasses make it easy to store each serving of juice. I also purchased these glass straws, which I love—the set comes with two brushes which are really helpful for cleaning them after each use.

4. Mango Check Suit Blazer

$150 on sale for $80

I’ve been so into the color brown lately and thought I’d try out a blazer that brought more of that kind of warmth to my wardrobe. I love the cut of this one!

5. Dr. Jart Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment

$21 – $52

I started using this product in December and it worked so well that it made it on the list of my favorite things from the entire year! My skin has a tendency to get really red, particularly after a workout and a shower. I’ve been using this face cream in the mornings and it’s reduced the amount of visible redness immensely. I call it my miracle cream!

6. Uniqlo x MARNI Mix Color Yarn Knitted Mittens

on sale for $10

This designer collab hits! I love the super cute design of these mittens. They’re not very warm but will come in handy during the end of the winter here. And at this price, they’re well worth it! 

7. The White Lotus Season 2

Included with an HBOMax Subscription

This show took up most of my text threads for a solid two weeks. It’s so well done and was so much fun to watch!

White Lotus was THE BEST! So good. May need to break out my juicer soon. It’s been years since I’ve used it.
