    27 Things For People Who Really, Really Hate Mornings

    I would rather be sleeping.

    1. A cold therapy ice roller that you can use for a full-body cooldown and de-puffing sesh in the a.m. I also use mine to combat migraines, and it works better than any pain-relieving technique I've tried.

    I'm obsessed with my ice roller. Like, I have recommended this to so many people I have lost count. It's great for cooling down when it feels like a sauna outside, it helps wake me up in the morning, and it saves me when I have a migraine. Unlike jade and quartz rollers, the roll-y part is made of gel, so when you pop it in the freezer it actually gets cold and stays cold for a loooooong time. It's also a lot larger than those doodads, so you can cover larger parts of your body, like your thighs and stomach (not just your under-eye area). TL;DR: Everybody needs to buy one of these immediately.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $13.55+. Available in five colours.

    2. A Ninja hot and cold coffee system that's basically a barista in a box. It can make an array of steamy and frosty beverages (including cappuccinos, iced tea, and cold brew) with barely any effort so you can start every morning off right.

    It also has six brew-size options, so you can make everything from a single cup to a full carafe.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $259.99 (originally $279.85).

    3. A pancake batter mixer that'll make whipping up flapjacks so easy, you'll probably make them for every meal. All you do is add your ingredients, throw in the included BlenderBall, and shake it up to mix everything together.

    It also has a spout lid so you won't go overboard with the batter and can even draw out shapes (if you fancy yourself a true ~artiste~).

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $18.99 (originally $19.99).

    4. A stick of cult-favourite Maybelline Instant Age Rewing concealer that'll trick people into thinking you got a full night of sleep, even when you're battling insomnia (it me). Reviewers say it has killer coverage and that it's great for hiding blemishes, too.

    "There are few beauty products out there that I consistently go back to, which says a lot because I love everything that has to do with makeup. But alas, here I am, consistently finding my way back to Maybelline’s Instant Age Rewind Concealer. It’s just *THAT* good! I still don’t know how a tube of drugstore concealer beats out the more expensive ones I have stuffed into my vanity, but it does. It’s not too creamy or thick, yet it still gives solid coverage without the cake-y feeling. It blends incredibly well with every foundation I wear (not at the same time, LOL) — and I have a lot of foundations." —Kayla Suazo

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $9.99+. Available in 20 shades.

    5. A sleek LED alarm clock that's *way* cuter than whatever's currently taking up space on your bedside table. You can adjust the brightness of the numbers so it won't bug you with its overpowering glow in the middle of the night.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $33.98+ (originally $37.99). Available in four sizes and in a colourful version.

    6. A tube of peel-off eyebrow tattoo gel that'll make filling in your brows a total breeze. It’ll tint your hairs for up to three days so you won’t have to repeat the process every morning. Plus, it costs way less than microblading.

    7. A slidable sign that'll help you keep track of your dog's feeding schedule so they won't be treated to a double breakfast when you're too tired to remember whose turn it is. It's pretty much essential if you share dog duties with a partner or roommate.

    "I hate ironing, which means that for a long time, if I had something that was wrinkled, either I wore it wrinkled or I never wore it again. But this steamer lets me smooth out all those fabric wrinkles within a few minutes, and dare I say it's almost fun to use it? Because it is. Now I don't have to dread the big production of ironing all my wrinkly stuff and just pull out this baby instead. It heats up in 30 seconds and can run for 15 minutes of steaming — plenty of time to rescue all my wrinkled clothing." —Kat Angus

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $49.97.

    27. And finally, a bottle of hydrating Mario Badescu facial mist to give your morning routine a luxurious lil' upgrade. It'll save your skin from dryness and pack it with nourishing herbs and oils, making you feel fresh, fine, and fierce in just a few spritzes.
