What’s on the Birchbox Editors’ Desks is a series of blog posts where we share some of what we’re excited about right now through pictures of our desks. Just this week we introduced you to one of the newest additions to the Birchbox fam, Molly (not to be confused with Mollie, our Director of Content), and already she’s making a big impact in the office. We’re constantly admiring her effortlessly cool outfits from Madewell and snagging some of the awesome Birchbox swag on her desk (tattoos, what!). She’s also an avid fragrance collector and certified beauty nut so we thought we’d give you a little peek at her desk today. Enjoy!
Starbucks: I’m actually not a lover of Starbucks but there’s one right downstairs and when it’s 5:00 and you have two minutes before a meeting it’s kind of inevitable. Today they were celebrating their 40th anniversary and giving out free treats so I got a mini lemon square with my soy misto. Free food —> Starbucks just racked up a few points in my book.
- Chantecaille palette: I l-o-v-e Chantecaille and this eyeshadow palette is gorge! The powders are so silky and there’s one color in particular that I’ve already made an impressive dent in.
Tocca samples: Tocca is such a beautiful brand; I’m fanatical about their candles and I cannot wait to try out all these fragrance samples. Stella, Cleopatra, Colette, Brigitte — all my favorite ladies are present and accounted for. And the packaging is so romantic! That lavender bow may very well make its way into my hair quite soon.
Weleda Wild Rose Deoderant: Just started test-driving this stuff yesterday. I really hate the idea of using an anti-perspirant, but my past forays into natural deodorants have been less than successful. So far I am stink-free so I’m crossing my fingers that this is the one! Wish me luck.
Jo Malone English Pear & Freesia Cologne: Fragrance has such a powerful effect on my mood; this zesty floral is staying on my desk as a pick-me-up until it hits 80 degrees out. So that’ll be a while I guess…
Own Lip Therapy in True Mint: These lip treatments just came over this morning. I’ve been re-applying the mint flavor all day! It’s hydrating and plumping in a futuristic-looking roll-on tube. The minty-ness is really refreshing and it has a super tingly effect on your lips. It actually kind of burns a little, but in a totally awesome way.
Revlon Nail Polish in Siren: I absolutely can’t wait to hop on the orange-hued band-wagon this summer! I’m a big nail polish girl, and I’m also pretty darn good at doing my own nails and the nails of others (not to toot my own horn). This winter, I’ve been obsessing over a dark eggplant shade from OPI called Midnight in Moscow, but I’m just about ready for a full-throttle leap across the color wheel to this bangin’ neon orange.
