Podcasts. When we hear the word podcast, we hear productivity. Podcasts are portable, convenient, and intimate, so you can listen to them while doing other things at work or home, or while commuting. They pretty much allow you to consume on-demand knowledge while doing other not very important things on your list. The bottom line, they will make you feel satisfied and make the most out of your time.
Cell Phone Necklace. This one is genuinely a no-brainer. Are you carrying around too many items? Do you keep forgetting your cell at home before heading to the office?

You can carry your cell crossbody and keep your hands free for everything else. And the best thing about it? It's super chic and trendy too.
BB Cream. Stands for Beauty Balm, this 5 in 1 beauty product is somewhere between a moisturizer and a foundation. But rather than your everyday foundation, the BB cream keeps you covered as well. It features an SPF to protect your skin against the sun, reduces redness, it's lightweight, and minimizes the need for all other products in your skincare routine. Well, girl, it's time to break up from your old foundation and meet this new lifesaver.
Dry Shampoo. Ask any celebrity hairstylist, and they will tell you not to wash your hair too often. Besides, who has the time or energy to wash and dry your hair every single day? Meet your new BFF. The dry shampoo. This magic powder or spray will reduce hair greasiness without the need for water, leaving your hair feeling very manageable and smelling really good! So, the next time you want to prolong your blowouts and keep your hair oil-free between washes, you know the secret.
Color Coding Your Wardrobe. Last but not least, to make it on our list is your wardrobe and color-coding it. Creating color blocks in your closet as a trend has been around for a decade or so. Still, it's seriously having a moment right now, along with other organizing and tidying up methods (Marie Kondo, anyone?). The reason why we like color-coding so much is that it will make getting ready so much quicker in the mornings. It's functional and makes it simple to find the clothes you're looking for, and best of all, it looks beautiful when it's complete!
