    1. A tube of Cosrx's rice mask you can use as an overnight sleeping mask, wash-off mask, or just as a cream. You're a sleep away from hydrated, bouncy skin!

    2. The Little Women Cookbook, because even though I saw it several weeks ago, I am in no way over it. And crying into delicious homemade treats inspired by the novel itself sounds better than...just crying.

    3. A personalized water bottle just like the ones they use on Love Island, because this is 100% my type on paper.

    4. A habit calendar so you can track daily, weekly, and monthly tasks to get you on the right foot — whether you've made New Year's resolutions or not. It's undated, so you can start any time!

    5. And a set of colorful pastel pens to make journaling, habit-tracking, taking notes in class, etc. more fun *and* more organized. Color-coding is a beautiful thing.

    6. A heated seat cushion so you can warm your butt all winter without upgrading to a fancy-schmancy car — it plugs right into your car charger!

    7. A Zipuller for those mornings where you're reaching around the back to zip up that dress but simply CANNOT. Don't waste time tracking down your roomie — you can handle things now.

    8. A telescoping foam snow broom specifically designed to move layers of the frozen white crystals OFF your car with ease — without scratching your windows or paint.

    9. A faux-embroidered tee or sweatshirt to show your ~roots~ as a plant parent with a thriving array of greenery in your apartment.

    10. An overflow drain cover so you can soak in a deeper (and therefore warmer) bath during these coldest months of the year. It just suction cups over the overflow drain so you can sit back and relax.

    11. An egg cup emblazoned with one of the most iconic 90 Day Fiancé lines in recent memory. "I can tote it, I just need your egg!"

    12. A pair of scrubby gloves covered with silicone nodules to lather up and remove touch stuck-on food particles while protecting your hands from that hot, hot water.

    13. A pretty little 3D floral trinket box to store your rings and other dainty jewelry in the manner they DESERVE.

    14. A two-pack of citrus peelers so you can enjoy your clementine, pomelo, or Sumo Citrus (my all-time fave) habit without having your hands smell like fruit the entire rest of the day.

    15. A lavender and chamomile aromatherapy mist you can spray on everything and make your bedroom a ~Cave of Slumbers~ when you're staring up at the ceiling at 2:47 a.m. and chanting "GO TO SLEEP!"

    16. A book of *supersized* New York Times Sunday crosswords for all the productive (exercising your brain!) procrastination you'll ever need.

    17. A stylish work tote with pleeeeeenty of room for everything you need to bring with you. Professional, practical, and surprisingly inexpensive? Check, check, check!

    18. A pomegranate de-seeder that'll keep you from splurging on prepared fruit — just pop the cut-in-half pomegranate on top, and tap with a spoon until every seed comes out. Your favorite superfood is ready to eat, and you didn't even have to get super annoyed.

    19. A ~Morning Refresh~ and/or ~Evening Unwind~ candle so you can start your day invigorated (hello citrus notes!) and end your day feeling peaceful (ahh, green tea and lavender).

    20. A pair of velvet jogger pants for an easy way to fancy-up a sweatpants look for a dinner out, date night, or even the office (depending on where you work).

    21. A 3D silicone croissant phone case I personally need, because I'm a pretty ~flaky~ texter.

    22. A stainless steel grooved bangle that'll transform a too-tight hair band (because everyone needs one with them always!) into a polished bracelet.

    23. A pack of Stomp 'n Go stain-lifting pads if you 1. have carpeting of any kind and 2. have a pet or ever drink non-clear beverages. These'll knock out any stains in no time flat.

    24. A pack of two deodorant-removing sponges for when you switch shirts *after* your careful deodorant application. Ughhhhh those white streaks!!!!

    25. A wine-tasting notebook if you're a burgeoning sommelier looking to expand your horizons — it has space to reflect and take notes on your favorite blends!

    26. Tarte's new Shape Tape Glow Wand for a non-glittery way to illuminate and highlight your under eyes, cheekbones, cupid's bow and more. It diffuses light and brightens without shimmer for a subtle glow-up!

    27. An exfoliating bar of soap reviewers with KP (aka keratosis pilaris) swear by to get rid of those tiny red bumps.

    28. A hand-powered juicer so you can make the perfect amount of fresh-squeezed OJ each day during cold and flu season — without taking up valuable kitchen space with a whole dang juicer.

    29. A pair of silicone oven mitts that'll transform your hands into Mickey Mouse's. And yeah, you might as well get the matching apron, too.

    Here's to becoming a wizard in the kitchen:
