The IT List: January 6

Posted on

Did you make a New Year’s resolution this year? This week’s IT List celebrates the start of 2012! Our prediction so far… it’s going to be an amazing year!

New Year’s Eve may have passed, but that doesn’t mean you have to stop celebrating. Tasty holiday drinks from SKYY Vodka, Campari, and Cabo Wabo Tequila  are sure to keep the party going all year long. [Toronto Sun]

We are loving Pantone’s 2012 Colour of the Year! (note Tangerine Tango filled blog post below) Stay on-trend with this sheer blouse from RW&CO.’s spring collection! [Toronto Sun]

One of  the most common New Year’s resolutions is to lose weight and get fit! But you don’t have to kill yourself in the gym to get results. Introduce walking into your routine to kickstart your fitness goals! Our favourite walking shoe – the very cool Fila Skeletoes! [Insert Magazine]

Bling in the New Year with essie Luxeffects polishes! The sparkle doesn’t have to stop after New Year’s Eve and these essie polishes will help you shine throughout 2012! [Beauty Connexion]

Who we’re following right now!

Most of us at NKPR are addicted to Twitter. In fact, we’re even kind of competitive about who has the most followers. Every now and then I’ll hear someone excitedly yelp out a number — “354!” — followed by applause, cheering and a challenge to try, if you dare, to “beat that.”

So, as you can imagine, we’ve assembled a nice (although far from complete!) list of favourite Tweeters, err, Twitterers, Twitterati? Anyways, here’s a sample of who we’re following on Twitter right now and why we <3 them.

Brittany: @AndyWarholSays. Warhol always had the best quotes. And when I’m looking for a fashion fix I go to @RWandCO. They post cool behind-the-scenes photos and contests.

Emily: @toromagazine gives me valuable “male brain” insight. I also follow @mindykaling, a TV writer hero of mine (The Office) and a master of the ironic hashtag. Mindy’s great because she doesn’t re-tweet too much, which annoys me — she just posts hilarious original thoughts.

Heather: A tweeter is only as good as their 140-character bio. Judy Blume’s stream? Not as favourable as her books. But her bio? Enviable.

Kaley: @peoplesrev. Kelly Cutrone is pure bad@ss: “You know where happy people end up? On welfare.” #socool

Kristin: @SKYYSpirits. They always have amazing drink recipes! Perfect for new patio cocktail ideas!

Laycee: @ispeakfemale. Because girls have to stick together!!! and the tweets are quotes that every girl should read once in their life! I also like @FollowAMB because the messages are so positive and inspiring.

Andrea: @mashable. Because he always tweets the most interesting information. I’m also a fan of @fila_100 because of the amazing giveaways.

Thary: @StephenAtHome. His tweets always make me laugh.

André: @ralphmarston. A daily dose of motivational messages you can relate to. They are always worthy of a re-tweet.

Aimee: @hypem. The hype machine. It helps me build my rad work-day playlists. And, because it’s summer, @andrea__pro. Great tips, tricks and contests.

Me: @MSiddiqi, @netaporter@nathat, @lisatant… Way too many to list!
