Must-Buys

Look fab­u­lous this fall with a skin-smooth­ing jade roller and a trendy shoe add-on.

Eas­ily open mail and boxes with Nimble, a rub­ber sleeve for your fin­ger­tip. When dragged across a sur­face at a 45-de­gree an­gle, the zir­co­nia ceramic blade in­side cre­ates a cut. ($10, the­grom­met.com)

This roomy, wi­peable, faux-leather Fawn De­sign Orig­i­nal di­a­per back­pack/ mes­sen­ger bag is so chic, you’ll want it for work too. There are 12 pock­ets, but the dis­creet back slot for a tablet or small lap­top is our fa­vorite. ($170, fawn­de­sign.com)

Kick an af­ter­noon su­gar crav­ing—and get a protein­packed en­ergy boost—with Ko­diak Cakes Brownie

Un­leashed in choco­late fudge. Just mix in ¼ cup of wa­ter (the con­sis­tency should be like cake bat­ter), then mi­crowave for a minute. ($3, ko­di­ak­cakes.com)

“It fits my baby’s essentials, plus a clunky breast pump!” —Mered­ith Bodgas, Work­ing Mother’s Editor-in-Chief

For a fall day that feels like sum­mer, tie on the Sweat-o-pause Cool­ing Scarf. When the high-tech ac­ces­sory be­comes damp, the ma­te­rial cools down up to 30 per­cent be­low skin tem­per­a­ture for im­me­di­ate re­lief. ($30, sweatopause.com)

When work has you run­ning around in pumps, en­list the help of Kick­stands. The re­versible bands, which slip around your shoe heel and across your foot, make trekking eas­ier— not to men­tion more on-trend. ($24, kick­stands.com)

While most dry sham­poos keep grease at bay for about a day, this IGK First Class Char­coal Detox Dry Sham­poo lets you go even longer with­out wash­ing your hair— by of­fer­ing a deeper cleanse via oil­ab­sorb­ing char­coal. ($27, igkhair.com)

The Log­itech Keys-to-Go Blue­tooth key­board con­nects wire­lessly to your iPhone or iPad for more-com­fort­able tex­ting and typ­ing, and fewer cases of un­for­tu­nate au­to­cor­rects. Plus: Its se­cure seal makes it liq­uid-re­pel­lant. ($70, log­itech.com)

If your kid’s night-wak­ing habit is leav­ing you with puffy eyes in the morn­ing, use this cool­ing Chi Roller Anti-Aging Jade

Ther­apy. It tem­po­rar­ily smooths things out. In the process, you get a calm­ing fa­cial mas­sage. ($24, gin­ger­chi .com)
