As much as we don’t want to admit it, the summer season is officially coming to a close. Even if you’re not going back to school, September can easily feel like January because it’s back to reality after the relaxation of the season. And let’s be real: getting back into your regular routine after the summer can be tough but there are plenty of products out there that are designed specifically to help you stay organized and slay your day. From tech and appliances, to skincare and planners, we’ve compiled a list to help you out.
A few weeks back, we were generously offered to experience Huawei’s P30 Pro Amber Sunrise Edition on a trip to Kitchener. After a quick stay at the beautiful Walper Hotel, Because it’s called the Amber Sunrise edition, the Hauwei fam planned for us to go up in a hot air balloon and take pictures of the sunrise. How cool is that? Not only was it such a fun experience, but the phone’s functionality and camera is seriously next level. It has all the functionality of a pro DSLR camera but without all the complicated buttons, lenses, or settings.
Here are 7 products to help you get back into your routine after summer!
If you’re looking to upgrade your tech, the Huawei P30 Pro Amber Sunrise Edition should definitely be on your radar. Between the amazing Leica Quad camera, easy-to-use technology, and slim design, it’s the perfect accessory to keep you on top of everything happening in your busy life. One thing that’s super cool about this phone (among many) is that you can use it with one hand as it has intelligent touch and an advanced in-screen fingerprint sensor swiftly unlocks it. This might not seem like a huge deal, but if you’ve struggled with bags and a coffee while trying to be on your phone? We have and trust us, this is a total lifesaver.
You’ve probably seen these backpacks around and for good reason. Not only are these Swedish-designed bags incredibly functional, but they’re super cute and can hold your many essentials that get you through the day. In addition to being totally water resistant, the bag has a two-way zip-around closure with a rain flap. Available in a bunch of different colours (seriously, how could we be expected to choose?!), this bag also has top handles so you can choose how you want to carry it if you want to give your back a little break.
Proving that you’re not the only one getting your s*it together this month is Ban.do with a planner that starts in August 2019 and runs until December 2020. If getting yourself organized is on your list for back to school, or back to reality, this is the planner to get your hands on. Not only will this planner hold all your many important dates, but it comes with fun stickers so you can personalize it all you want. No more boring agendas for you!
If you’re going to be spending more time in the office, you might want to invest in quality headphones to drain out that water cooler chat. There’s nothing like tuning out with a pair of headphones to motivate you to fire through your workload. The best part about these headphones is that they’re wireless so no more untangling wires — these just slip right over your ears!
Let’s be honest — coffee truly saves lives. If you’re looking for an easy way to make your morning cup of Joe, Lagostina’s 8 Cup Press is the way to go. Not only is using a press like this more environmentally friendly, it’s almost stupid easy to use — simply add your ground coffee to the pot, pour hot (not boiling) water, and stir. Then, carefully insert the plunger into the pot, stopping just above the water and ground coffee (don’t press yet!), and let stand for a couple minutes. Then, you can press away and enjoy your hot cuppa and get ready to slay your day!
With life kicking back into high gear, you might not be able to get your full eight hours of beauty sleep, but you don’t have to look it. If you’re feeling a little exhausted in the mornings, treat yourself and your under eyes to a little TLC with SKN’s Wake Me Up Collagen Eye Patches. With just one application, these miracle workers reduce the appearance of dark circles, puffiness, and revive tired eyes!
Attention all non-morning people! Waking up early is a seriously struggle and the folks over at Phillips have your back with the Somneo Connected that’ll help you wake up more naturally. This handy gadget will help you get back into your routine with its wake-up light that is much more gentle than a blaring alarm!
There’s something about rocking a new pair of shoes that gets your rear in gear. Start September off on the right track and grab yourself some new kicks from New Balance. These babies are not only functional, but they’re super cute and are also the motivation you need to hit the gym after work or school!
