Nest Verde Unisex Fragrance
This crisp unisex fragrance is my new favorite. It’s considered a green fragrance — hence the name “Verde” — which means it’s fresh but not too sweet, perfect for spring and summer.
Ray Ban Aviators
There’s not much to say. I’m on my third pair of these and I will wear them forever.
Waterman Stainless Steel Pen
My assistantship director from grad school gave me this pen as a graduation gift. It’s sleek, functional, and writes smoothly.
Bowers and Wilkins P5 Wireless Headphones
Wires get tangled; these wireless headphones don’t. They aren’t noise canceling, but they do well blocking out noise.
Candlefish No. 19 Candle
Candlefish is a custom candle shop in Charleston, South Carolina, with its own scent library. No. 19 — clove, fennel, musk — is spicy, warm and masculine.
Canon EOS Rebel T5i Camera
This was my first real DSLR camera, and works great for shooting style items and landscapes alike. It’s easy to use, dependable and a great value for the money.
Bellroy Note Sleeve Wallet
This wallet is everything a wallet should be: slim, functional, minimalist. It pulls its weight without weighing down my bag. Plus, RFID protection keeps my data safe.
Thisisground Voyager Weekender
This is the perfect travel bag, by one of my favorite brands. It’s made with gorgeous leather and even has optional built-in wi-fi through a partnership with Karma Go. I can imagine owning this bag and finally going through the security line at the airport with ease.
