I’ve been back at work for two weeks and already the internet has blessed (#blessed) us with Goop #NewYearNewYou recommendations, a food trend that needs to stop right now, fun facts that will blow your mind, an important #Januworry tip and more. I hope you’re hungry 🙈 because this is the first edition of Bytesized for 2018!

And finally, two amazing fun facts that you can impress your friends with…
