    38 Products To Make Your Mornings Go As Smoothly As Possible

    To all the self-described "morning people" out there, I have only one question: how?

    1. Flexible curling rods that allow you to wake up with ready-to-go hair. These are pros at giving you the perfect waves without subjecting your 'do to any more heat damage and what's that? It's the sound of my burnt split-ends, tired eyes, and weak upper arms crying tears of relief.

    2. An alarm clock so loud, even the most stubborn snoozers will be forced to hop out of bed. Not only will this afford you more time to get ready every morning (bless), but snoozing = grogginess AKA this is basically better than a cup of coffee.

    3. A rechargeable portable blender great for anyone who is perpetually late and trying to get some sustenance on-the-go. Just dump in your favorite ingredients, press the blend button while walking to your car, and BAM! You've got yourself a delicious smoothie.

    4. A Two Minute Mornings journal with a dedicated page for each morning that asks what you will let go of, what you are grateful for, and what you will focus one. Consider this simple tradition to be your dedicated ~me time~, a practice that helps you start each day on the right foot.

    5. A dual-ended eyeliner stamp because, IN SPITE OF YOUR BEST EFFORTS, achieving the perfect cat eye is hard: this easy-to-use tool makes it about 1000x easier. All you'll have to do is cover the stamp in eyeliner, apply to your lashline, and your wing will be done in mere seconds — and you won't have to had used/wasted 10 makeup wipes and several years of your life in order to achieve it.

    6. Adjustable clip holders to turn any bra into a no-show racerback. Long gone will be the days of —> put on shirt —> bra shows —> take off shirt to change bra —> put shirt back on again. Not to be dramatic, but these clips will change your life when you're in a rush (which is always).

    7. A Garnier daily moisturizer for those of us who forget the most important step in our AM skincare routines (SUNSCREEN). This lightweight formula contains SPF30 and actively prevents sun damage, meaning you'll get moisture and sun protection in just one swipe.

    8. A Takeya cold brew maker with an airtight lid and stainless steel filter that will keep your coffee fresh for up to two weeks. "No more having to wake up extra early to stop for cold brew at that expensive coffee shop," I'll say to my reflection in the mirror, heart jittering as I sip my 15th cup of cold brew for the day.

    9. A Philips alarm clock that mimics natural light and gradually brightens over 30 minutes, meaning you'll feel as if you're waking up with the sunrise and your own internal clock as opposed to the jarring noise of a typical alarm.

    10. An iPhone case designed with a handy dandy wallet, meaning you can keep your two most valuable possessions (your cards and your cell) on hand at all times. Just throw this one thing in your bag and you'll be ready to head out the door.

    11. A pair of black flats that will not clash with anything in your closet, so you’ll be able to throw on any hue/print/style in the AM without fear of being stopped by the fashion police. I know, I know, you usually wear black, but these are great to have just in case you decide to wear some fun colors.

    12. A cast iron wall mount you can install right near your door. No more overthrowing couches and digging through trash cans in an attempt to find your lost keys. No sir! This mount ensures that they'll be conveniently hanging for you to just grab 'em and go.

    13. A Downy wrinkle-eliminating spray for the person who doesn't feel like showing up to a business meeting with a wrinkled outfit, but also doesn't have time to iron. This spray works to eliminate wrinkles, static, and odor, which is especially lovely if you're a bit behind on laundry (which I totally am not hahah).

    14. A Skintimate 2-In-1 moisturizer capable of making every lazy person in the 🌎 jump for joy. This shea butter-, soy protein-, and aloe-infused formula acts as both a shaving cream and a skin conditioner, meaning you can skip the whole "waiting for your lotion to dry before FINALLY putting on clothes" process. Your limbs will by hydrated the moment you step onto your bathroom tile, thus saving you a few precious minutes after every morning shower.

    15. A Maybelline concealer formulated with goji berry and Haloxyl because no one needs to know that you binged all of Chernobyl last night. Just a quick swipe of this and *poof* your dark circles are now a thing of the past.

    16. An insulated, stainless steel Hydro Flask water bottle with a lifetime warranty that keeps drinks cold for up to 24 hours and hot for up to six hours, meaning you'll be able to stay hydrated/caffeinated all day long. *proceeds to drink less than one sip of water per day*

    17. AND! Bottle Bright cleaning tablets to quickly remove all that funky, gross, probably-starting-to-smell build-up in the above bottle. These are biodegradable, chlorine-free, and — best of all — require absolutely NO effort or scrubbing.

    18. Roll-up flats that can be stashed in your bag, meaning you can slip these babies on when your four-inch heels become too much to bear during your morning commute.

    19. An Aquis hair towel designed with a microfiber construction that is super-absorbent and cuts drying time by up to half — meaning you'll be able to spend less time on your hair and more time on things that matter. Another episode of The Office before work, anyone?

    20. A silicone travel mat that is heat-resistant up to 450°F and prevents you from ruining expensive things (like, gee, furniture). Feel free to wrap this around a hot tool before it's completely cooled down (b/c we don't have time for that) with peace of mind nothing will set on fire whilst you're typing away at work.

    21. Hem tape to provide a quick fix for all your ~should've brought these to the tailor~ needs. These allow you to shorten long pants and skirts within minutes, no finger-pricking sewing needles required.

    22. A coconut + coffee Yes To cleansing stick you'll want to add to your AM routine. This stuff will ~wake up~ your skin like a cup of caffeine and is super hydrating, meaning your complexion will feel clean, refreshed, and primed for foundation.

    23. A four-sided brush cleaner for when you wake up to realize that your favorite suede booties need some TLC before being worn to the office. This easily cleans away scuff marks and salt stains with little to no effort required, which is exactly the amount of effort I'm looking to exert in the morning.

    24. A gluten-free, high-protein peanut spread available in flavors such as chocolate maple pretzel, birthday cake (*drool*), and cookie dough. Add it to toast in the morning for a quick-but-filling breakfast!

    25. A Hair Dance powder dry shampoo that is especially great at vacuuming up grease and adding body sans any leftover chalky white residue. Pro tip: If you add some into your roots before bed, you'll wake up with a completely refreshed scalp that looks like it was shampooed five minutes ago ( opposed to five days ago).

    26. A tinted Australian Gold face lotion packed with SPF50 you can slather onto your skin every morning. This provides sheer coverage, blurs pores, and immediately gives your skin a bright, dewy glow.

    27. A magnetic converter that will make struggling with your lobster clasps a thing of ancient history. This lets you throw on your go-to jewelry with the snap of a finger, no arm dislocation or mirror required.

    28. A structured blazer perfect for mornings in which you've slept in and now have about three minutes to get dressed. Throw this on over even the most wrinkled of white tees for a look that exudes professionalism and sophistication. Who literally rolled out of bed and ran to work? Not you! *wink*

    29. Lavender-scented hypoallergenic wipes because morning runs are great in theory, but will you have time to shower? Probably not. These tea tree oil, peppermint, aloe, and ginseng wipes will quickly cleanse your skin and prevent any body acne apocalypses from occurring.

    30. A deodorant sponge capable of getting those dreadful white marks off your favorite black tee with a few quick swipes. Deodorant: so necessary because we smell, so annoying because it stains everything it touches.

    31. A silicone spool because tangled headphones are the second most frustrating thing on the planet (forgetting your headphones at home is #1). Imagine being able to pull these out of your purse without having to unknot them for five minutes? Wow.

    32. Mini hair pins to give you the ballerina bun of your pirouette-packed dreams. Just one of these little pins can do the work of up to *20* hair pins, ridding the need of those excessive random pins that would otherwise just dig into your scalp. A quick updo before heading out for the day = so much saved time.

    33. A Ninja 12-cup coffeemaker equipped with an automatic timer, that way your cup of caffeine is ready 👏 and 👏 waiting 👏 for you from the moment you open your eyes to hit the snooze button. Again.

    34. A Mario Badescu powder about to become your new holy grail if you're pimple-prone + want some coverage. This absorbs excess oil and reduces redness, all while a sulfur-based formula works to actively heal breakouts in the process. Talk about a two-in-one.

    35. A Trader Joe's sea salt, garlic, and onion seasoning here to turn breakfast into a gourmet affair with basically no effort. This mixtures is perfect for any food you can think of, including the simple scrambled eggs you try to whip up every morning.

    36. A countertop simplehuman trash can that says au revoir to sugar packets and used stirrers cluttering up your kitchen. Revolutionary idea: IMMEDIATELY THROW THEM OUT INSTEAD. This prevents you from cluttering up your kitchen when you're in a morning rush.

    37. A ginger sugar overnight mask you apply before bed and voilà! You'll wake up to a nourished pout ready for even the most drying of matte formulas (because I'm just going to come out and say it...🗣️matte formulas look great, but they ARE drying as heck).

    38. A stainless steel odor absorber that will rid your hands of any pungent scents — because you were supposed to wash the dishes last night, but life happened and now you're stuck doing them in the morning. Just a quick wash with this bar and voilà! Your hands are now odor-free and you won't have the smell of fish lingering around you all day long.

    Me @ my alarm clock every 👏 single 👏 morning 👏:
