    28 Things That’ll Make You Want To Say "New Year, New Me"

    2020? We don't know her.

    1. A tub of semi-permanent hair colour, if you've been dyeing to change up your look. The vibrant colours will last up to six weeks, and the formula is free of peroxide and ammonia, so it won't damage your hair.

    2. A Hydro Flask water bottle that'll encourage you to drink more water this year. The stainless steel makes it practically indestructible and will keep your drink cold for 24 hours and hot for 12.

    3. A bottle of bitter nail polish that'll help you finally kick that nail-biting or thumb-sucking habit. The taste will last for a few days, and reviewers say that they stopped biting their nails after a few weeks.

    4. A copy of Marie Kondo's book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up that'll revolutionize the way you organize your home and things. Kondo's method will help you decide which items actually "spark joy" and are worth keeping and which items you should get rid of.

    5. A set of resuable straws, if you've decided to stop using plastic ones this year. They're made of durable borosilicate glass and they come in a variety of beautiful colours that'll make anything you drink look a little fancier.

    6. A food storage container that'll keep your fridge looking tidy and smelling fresh. It'll seal out moisture and control the flow of oxygen and carbon dioxide, so your produce will stay fresher for longer.

    7. A felt tote organizer that'll help sort items in your purse, so you can pull them out as easily as Mary Poppins. There are nine compartments where you can keep all your everyday essentials and it's super easy to transfer from one bag to another.

    8. A pair of Warby Parker glasses that'll have you looking spectacular this year. The rounded shape and subtle keyhole bridge add a bookish charm to these specs, and they come in a variety of colours, so you can choose between a classic tortoise print or chic tinted look.

    9. A WordPress for beginners course that'll show you the ins and outs of building and managing your own website. Whether you're creating a personal or business website, this course will show you the main features you'll need to understand, how to find and install relevant plugins, and all the ways you can customize your site.

    10. A handy phone grip that'll make it almost impossible for you to drop your device. It'll make it easier to hold your phone while you scroll through TikToks or FaceTime your friends and the fun print will add an extra pop of colour to your case.

    11. A set of reusable shopping bags, because gone are the days of you using plastic bags at the grocery store. There are three produce bags for fruit and vegetables, and a large tote that you can fold into a tiny square, so it won’t take up a lot of space in your bag.

    12. A Laneige skincare set that'll keep your skin hydrated as heck. You'll get a full-sized moisturizer, along with a mini-sized essence and sleeping mask, so you can try them out before deciding which ones you want to keep using.

    13. A spiky massage ball that'll treat your bod to a much-needed massage. Just roll it underneath your neck, back, or shoulders to loosen and soothe your sore muscles.

    14. A cleaning pen that'll make all your jewelry shimmer and shine like it used to. The brush has soft, long bristles that can clean every inch of your jewelry without scratching it, and the cleanser is safe to use on diamonds, precious gemstones, gold, and platinum jewelry.

    15. A ring light that'll make you shine bright like a diamond from any angle. It has three brightness levels and a flexible phone mount, so you'll always have perfect lighting while you video chat, apply makeup, take selfies, and film TikToks.

    16. A set of page dividers that double as oversized sticky notes, so you can find your notes in a jiffy. They're great for notebooks, planners, textbooks, and bullet journals. Plus, you can easily reposition or remove the dividers, without damaging the paper.

    21. A travel-friendly Kindle that'll encourage you to read more. You can carry an impressive collection of books with you at all times and create your optimal reading experience by adjusting the text size, font, and backlight.
