Love List

1. #GimmeFive is FLOTUS's latest challenge in her Let's Move campaign. The campaign is celebrating its fifth year and Mrs. Obama is challenging us to shout out five of the things you're doing to eat better, be more active and lead a healthier life. She's also encouraging high-fives when you see people making healthy choices. I may not literally do that but hey, homie, high-five to you if you're out there busting your butt to get to better health. (Let's Move)

2. Waze is my favorite navigation app ever. I've been using it for a while and I can't believe I haven't featured it on this list yet! Better late than never. This app routes you around traffic AND alerts you to red light cameras, hazards on the road, police officers, cars on the shoulder. It keeps you safe and on time AND it is totally free. Download it if you haven't already! (Waze)

3. The Vibrating Ring Alarm Clock is just a concept at the moment but I am hoping designer, Fandi Meng, can get it on the market soon. My husband would be super appreciative if he doesn't have to hear the 4-5 iPhone alarms that I require to wake up every morning (I'm not kidding). (Gadgetose)

4. Do you wear a hair band on your wrist every day just in case you have an emergency need for a ponytail? I certainly do and you can't imagine how thrilled I am about a product that makes my hair bands more stylish. Bittersweet's genius bracelet will absolutely be on my wrist. They range from $45-$85, which is pretty good for something you could potentially wear every day. (Bittersweet)

5. I can't get enough of my pets and I love the idea of these colorful custom pet prints by Dean Russo.  (The Grommet)

6. When my sis was a baby, she used to pull on my earrings every time I picked her up. The result is droopage (that's a technical earrings when I hear large studs or heavier earrings. I could get surgery or I could cure the problem with Levears. They come in sterling silver, white gold and yellow gold. (Levears)

7. Greatist is my current newsletter addiction. It's all about making better choices for your health and improving your life. (Greatist)

8. Film Biz Recycling is an organization that prevents pollution and creates jobs through its retail prop shop in Brooklyn. Most of what they have comes from NYC's film, television, commercial and theatre sets so you know they've got some awesome stuff. The sad news is they are closing their doors. The good news is they are having a massive sale. Get the details here. (Film Biz Recycling)

9. Have you heard of a capsule wardrobe? When we moved a couple of months ago, I had to downsize my wardrobe. Caroline from Un-Fancy has an awesome guide. Read more here. (Un-Fancy)
