Listening to music during your workout or watching videos during your Coffee Bean break: It’s all easier if you’ve got state-of-the-art wireless connectivity.

Remember: Every time you drink from plastic bottles, you’re personally strangling a baby seal. (Not really, but opt for a reusable vessel, OK?)
The 101 is creeping. Or maybe you’re obsessing over romance and finance. Whatever the stressor, a deep inhale of this roll-on calming jojoba-and-citrus essential oil as you rub it into your palms will unfurrow your brow.

Egyptian Magic ($15)
Lightweight SPF Foundation
