Meet Your Editor: A Few of My Favorite Things

Save

I hate to admit it, but I'm a creature of habit. Big time. I tend to wear the same clothes, listen to the same podcasts and gravitate toward the same publications. I like adventure, of course, but as an editor at eHow — where we're constantly thinking of new ways to present our content and impress our readers — I try to keep my own routine predictable. Here are a few of my go-to products during the workweek, so that I can stay on my toes when it comes to everything else.

  1. This is what I mean about wearing a uniform: I own more than one of these simple, lightweight J. Crew tops. But before you say, "Ugh, boring," hear me out — these shirts go with everything. Pair it with jeans, tuck it into a skirt, or layer it under a jacket. As for shoes? Try these.
  2. The best part about this tote bag, in addition to its size and color, is pretty simple: it has a zipper. That's right, I'm easily impressed (and prone to carrying too many things at once).
  3. We don't have an official book club at the office, but we've been talking about Emma Cline's novel for weeks. It has been passed across the desks of four editors so far.
  4. Not only does Rifle Paper Co.'s stationery look great as art on a bulletin board, but a card can also double as a last-minute letter in case a coworker has an impromptu celebration. Go above and beyond with this envelope.
  5. I am a sucker for gummy bears, and I try to eat only a handful a week. The keyword there is try.
  6. An editor who likes coffee? How original! But this delicious one comes in a carton that's equal parts nostalgic and fun, so you'll have to excuse the cliché.
