2.Charcoal-infused sheets that resist odor and microbial growth, so you won't have to wash them quite as often. That means more time to do all the badass stuff you actually want to do.
3.A two-piece wooden desk shelf you can adjust to perfectly fit your workspace and hold all your tools of the trade in organization-porn-worthy fashion.
4.An absolutely fabulous power suit that'll make you strut into every room like you own the place (because you basically do).
5.And an OMG-worthy phone case inspired by said power suit so you can channel the same energy even on tee-and-sweatpants days.
6.A chic, grooved hair tie-holding bracelet that everyone will marvel at because 1) it's so genius and 2) you'll always be prepared with a hair tie without looking sloppy. The classic hair-tie-around-your-wrist trick, but make it ~fashion~.

12.An enamel pin representing your forever mood, so no one will ever mistake the power nap you just took at your desk for weakness.
