Motorola Verveloop+ Wireless earbuds £59.99, verve.life/uk These marked an end to my long search for Bluetooth earphones that fit comfortably, stay in the ear and have great sound quality.
C/ GEORGIA SCARR Deputy digital editor
Lululemon Inspire Tight II £98, lululemon.co.uk I love these tights for cold-weather running; they’re strong on edgy style but they also do a great job when winter turns cruel.

Maxinutrition Fuelmax Endurance Gel £1.49, boots.com The mixed berry flavour has become my favourite gel. It has an easy-to-tear seal, smooth consistency and a pleasant taste.
