We get it. You want to splurge. Maybe you’ve been toiling away, saving those pennies. Maybe you’ve just gotten a sweet windfall. Point is, you’re ready for a big purchase. But it’s got to be the very best.
Here’s some of the coolest buys you’ve got your eye on. You can thank us later.
Beats Pill XL Speakers – US$299.95
Somewhere in between all those Chem lessons, you’ve still got a life. And that life includes picking tracks for your huge house party. Beats Pill XLs pack a serious punch — they’re the biggest Beats By Dre speakers available, yet still lightweight. Plus, they pair with any Bluetooth-enabled device (including other Beats Pill XLs), so you can control everything right from your phone — no more tripping on tangled cords.
iPhone 6 – uncertain
We know, we know: It’s not out yet. We’re not even sure what it’s going to look like. But Apple’s newest and maybe biggest iPhone to date is rumoured to drop in September 2014. iHeads have been predicting cool new features like a 5.5-inch display (finally!) and Touch ID.
iPad Air – US$499
If you’ve ever tried to lie in bed studying on a regular tablet, you’ll know how heavy and unwieldy they can be. A lightweight design and a Retina display make this the best iPad yet. The A7 chip boosts processing speeds, while the M7 coprocessor saves battery life — no more panic attacks when you forget that charging cable at home.
Samsung Galaxy S4 – US$495.98 and up (unlocked)
Maybe you’re just not that into Apple. The S4 is currently stacked as one of the best Android devices on the market. A super slim bezel, full HD Super AMOLED screen and Android’s new Jelly Bean operating system are a great improvement on one of the top smartphones out right now. Plus, the 13-megapixel camera is really going to up your selfie game.
Michael Kors Phone Crossbody Bag – US$149.95
Sometimes, you just don’t want to carry around that huge tote — you know, the one you stuff all your schoolbooks, hair brushes, mirrors and stray dollar bills in. Cute and sleek, but big enough for your phone, this crossbody purse is the perfect little black bag. Pack rats need not apply.
Nike Roshe Run Sneakers – US$70 and up
Exercise fiends already know the Roshe Runs are top-of-the-line. Lots of great colourways mean more options for girls. They’ve got a webbing heel and tongue pull loop, so you can easily slip them on and off. And the waffle pattern outsole provides great traction — perfect for when you’re running those endless suicide drills on the basketball court.
Imagine the arm party you could start with this watch. A 42mm case makes this perfect for any wrist size. The golden stainless steel finish promises durability and resistance to wear and tear. Plus, we know you can’t resist some good, old-fashioned gold accessories. Trinidad James has nothing on you.
