As we get our lives back to normal, many of us are heading back to the office
But being so out of practice, and with a load of new things to consider, are you ready to boss the commute?
Never fear – we’re here to help you smooth out all those little speed bumps that can make commuting a nightmare.
Smart dress codes – remember those? Whether your office is all about the suit, or you’re able to dress a bit more casual, you’ll find the perfect thing across our iconic stores, including Hobbs London, Mango, or Zara.
Come back to the office with a bang – along the way, you can feel like you’re rocking it as your best self, with your favourite scent from L’Occitane giving your fellow commuters an idea of who you are.

Out the door
Who leaves home without hand sanitiser anymore? If you’re commuting on a busy tube in particular, you definitely don’t want to be caught short. To truly boss it, indulge in some luxury hand sanitiser from Molton Brown.
Sometimes a hot drink is just the pickup you need for the train journey. With a travel mug from Nespresso, not only is your morning coffee more stylish, but it’s also more sustainable.
And from now on, let’s try to have no more awkward fumbling around in your bag to get that Oyster card out! With this handy card holder from Mango, you can keep moving and stay ahead of the crowds.

After grabbing some seasonal groceries (or perhaps even a dine in for two for £10 deal!) from M&S Food, it’s time to make the journey home.
The return leg can drag a little after a tiring day. A commuter essential, headphones are a must-have to pass the time – catch up on your podcasts, check out the latest album by your favourite artist, or just tune in to the radio. Find some great headphones options at Boots.

Time to unwind
You’ve made it home, now it’s time to chill. And with less time to practice your Gordon Ramsay skills, healthy recipes that are quick and easy would be perfect, right? Nip into Waterstones, where they have a whole section of cookbooks catering for every diet – plus some to flex your baking skills if you're in need of a sweet treat. *Chef’s kiss!*
After dinner, how about some precious self-care? Try SpaceNK for bubble baths, face masks and a host of ways to treat yourself after a long day. You’ve earned it!
All that’s left to do is set your alarm, pop on your patterned eye mask from Zara, and get ready to boss it tomorrow!
