Time for another edition of one of our all-time favorite conceits: What’s on Staffers’ Desks. Now that we have four international offices—New York, Barcelona, Paris, and London—we’ve got plenty of fun snapshots to share from the Birchbox universe!
I started my career as an archaeologist [Ed. note: talk about a fun fact!], and still remember it fondly, so I keep a few trinkets on hand to remind me of the old days. The terracotta warrior (from Xi’an, China) and brass helmet (from Ephesus, Turkey) are two examples, but honestly, after all those nights in the desert, the whiskey might be a more fitting memento. It’s a wheat blend called “77”, made right here in the city by Breuckelen Distilling. It pairs smooth and spicy better than most and has quickly become my Friday favorite.
As you might expect, I write a lot of product descriptions, so the brand partnerships team keeps my desk stocked with grooming samples. The one downside? I can only shave once a day (though I’ve been known to double up on showers).
What do you keep on your desk?
