…. Even if you’re attending Zoom University.
As students across the nation and world gear up for a new school year, things will undoubtedly look different (hello and thanks Covid-19). Whether your school is online, in-person or blended, there are some must have items you’ll need. Trust me, you won’t be able to resist these online shopping temptations!
1. Tilit Masks
Okay, I know what you’re thinking…. more masks, seriously? But, hear me out. For the foreseeable future we all need to wear the damn face coverings, so for the sake of hygiene and comfort it could be worth investing in an *extra* bad boy, if it’s within your means.
Treat yourself before the new school year begins with a mask that actually adjusts to YOU. Forget one size fits all because with Tilit’s masks there is a head and neck strap that’s made of soft elastic and is totally adjustable, aka you’ll get through every long day with much more ease. Lightweight and cotton, these masks are seriously a must have and unlike any other.
2. The SHOCK App
Exercise should always be a top priority, but perhaps now more than ever before it’s important to make a conscious effort to get those steps in and move your body for at least 30 minutes a day. The SHOCK app is perfect for everyone stuck at home. While fingers are crossed that gyms can reopen safely soon, until then download. this. freakin. app!!! There are Strength, LISS and HITT workouts that are guaranteed to have you sweatin’.
I’m not a freshman, but how about the quarantine 15 lbs? Nope, just me? K. Well, regardless SHOCK will help you reach all of your fitness goals with minimum equipment, making for some great at home workouts that will have you feeling fabulous from the inside-out.
3. Speks’ Magnetic Balls
Speks’ magnetic balls are designed to positively impact your everyday wellness – perfect for the stressed-out student who needs to just chill tf out. It’s sorta like a stress ball, but sooo much better! Speks are colorful sets of 512 balls, made from rare earth magnets and designed to build, mold, sculpt and engineer endless shapes and satisfying structures.
These balls will help you not only smush stress, but also crush anxiety. They’re super portable, delightfully distracting, and perfect for fidgety fingers. Do it while you’re in your Zoom class or literally any other time!
4. A LifePlanner
Yes, life is crazy, but that doesn’t mean you have to be disorganized. The Erin Condren Zodiac LifePlanner is super cute and dreamy with mini quotes, notes and productivity pages. Oh, and did I mention the FOUR sticker sheets, folder, ruler and storage box also included? I know not everyone has Type A, ~Virgo~ energy, but get your organization on with a planner. You’ll thank me later.
5. A Backpack (but, make it sustainable)
The FEATT by Ted Baker is made using 50% recycled materials. It is an everyday essential with it’s roll top closure and roomy inside. It is finished with smart detailing for a stylish finish. You can’t get a bag much classier than this and we STAN for the sustainability. Recycled polyester? Heck yes!
6. Dinner and Party Sets
Before everyone rushes back to school, don’t forget about the Labor Day barbecues, which this year must adhere to the CDC and social distance guidelines put forth by your state. For the perfect picnic or party, check out all that Sophistiplate has to offer, ranging from paper dinner plates to paper lunch napkins to assorted plastic cutlery. The elegant and chic tableware is sure to make every event photo worthy. So, get the burgers and hot dogs out because summer is almost over… *sad.*
But even so, the adorable and affordable shot glasses (see above) will make for some memorable (or not so memorable) nights at college! And you’ll def want to grab a few plate sets for your dorm.
