"I applied considering, Please notice me, please discover me." Obviously issues worked out, as a result of right here she is 4 and a half years later, solely now she's not an intern: She's a senior trend editor, and she or he's the one we flip to for ideating actually cool campaigns (to not mention really cool minimalistic outfit inspiration).

Nayiri's jewelry collection is particularly enviable, so I wasn't stunned to see these Sophie Buhai stunners make her listing. "One other reality about being a brand new mom: You will overlook the whole lot," she notes. "It's only once I'm pulling in to the parking zone at work once I understand I forgot to wear earrings, so I pledged to myself that I might be preserving a pair of trendy gold hoops in my bag at all times, just in case."

Her different work-bag beauty important? "For years, I've been using Avene's cold-cream lip sticks, however this season, I'm altering it up," she says. "The A.C. is blasting in our workplace, and I'm going from assembly to meeting chatting up a storm, so my lips are in fixed want of TLC. I really like this Chanel lip balm because it appears good in my bag and it keeps my lips moisturized."

Final but not least?
