2018 is only a few days away and with it comes a chance for a fresh start. Like many of you, I’ve decided that fitness is at the top of my list and this year I want to make a real promise to myself to stick with it. I’m going to be turning 30 in April and I want to be in the best shape of my life – both physically & mentally, but also in life in general. Am I going to become a fitness junkie? Nah. Am I going to try to be more active, eat healthier & make small life changes to get there? Absolutely.

If you’re like me and want to make a difference in your life this year, I’ve pulled together a list of a few products that might help to make your goals a bit more attainable. Check them out in and let me know in the comments below what your resolutions are & how you plan on getting there!

1. A cute pair of yoga leggings – Let’s face it, having a new set of workout clothes is definitely motivation to get back into a fitness routine. These leggings come in several colours and patterns and the stretchy material is great for easy movement.

2. A fitness tracker – If you feel like you need a bit more of a push to stay active throughout the day, a fitness tracker might be just what you need. The Fitbit Charge 2 tracks your activity throughout the day, calories burned, heart rate and sleep among other things. I love that it reminds you to get up and move if you’ve been inactive for a while, which is great if you sit at a desk all day.

3. Some new kicks – If you’ve been wearing your running shoes for a while, now might be a good time to pick up a new pair. A new pair of shoes can give you the support you need while active and help improve your workouts.

4. A convenient yoga mat – Looking for an easy activity you can do at home? Yoga is great for any level of activity and can help improve your mindfulness while you’re at it. A comfortable yoga mat, like this affordable version, can be carried anywhere. There are tons of apps out there that can help you get your routine started on your own or check out a local class to get going.

If you need some inspiration for healthier food options that taste good, try picking up a few cookbooks that focus on delicious, good-for-you meals. There are a ton of options out there right now, like The Beauty Chef and Oh She Glows, that will help you to make better food choices without sacrificing taste.

I might not be ready to admit that summer is winding down, but it is. When the CNE is only a couple of weeks away, it’s a surefire sign that September is just around the corner, which also means back to school for many of us. I’m not heading back to school (a couple of online courses don’t count) but I still get excited thinking about BTS shopping – it was always one of my favourite things to do this time of year. Anyways, if you’re heading off for the first time or going back, check out my list of back to school essentials that will definitely make this year one to remember.

I’m notorious for having several notebooks on the go, which doesn’t always end so well. I’m totally coveting the  Rocketbook reusable notebook because it’s so cool. You write on the pages and scan the code on the page to upload everything you’ve just written (or doodled) to your computer so you have everything safely stored and organized. The pages wipe clean so you can use them again and again.

Of course, you’re going to need a backpack to lug your laptop and textbooks around in. I always love shopping for backpacks and totally go for cute (and functional) styles, like this Tibes Backpack, that makes bringing everything around with me that much easier.

Comfortable, stylish kicks are a must for getting around campus, and let’s face it, at some point you’re going to end up being late for class or an exam and will need to hightail it from one side to the other. Grab a cute pair of sneakers, like these Keds Sneakers, for comfortable days spent in classes.

  While yes, school is technically about academics, it also has a major social side to it. Print all of the snaps you capture at parties and events in an instant with the HP Sprocket Portable Photo Printer so you can decorate and remember it all. I so need to get one of these!

 

We all know that school can get a little stressful, especially around exam time. If you’re living off campus and have a tub you can use, take some time to dstress when things get a little hectic with a bath bomb and keep your skin in check with The Body Shop Tea Tree Facial Wash.

When you’ve been up all night studying or finishing an essay chances are you won’t have a lot of time to get ready to go before you head out the door. Get rid of bedhead in a flash with the InfinitiPro by Conair Hot Ionic Straightening Brush which quickly straightens and smooths the hair as you run it through your locks.

Oh, by the way, students get a free 6-month trial for Amazon Prime, and after that it’s 50% off – totally worth it, IMHO. What are you shopping for for your back to school essentials this year?
