Bang & Olufsen Beoplay E8 2.0

There are few things I love more than my Apple AirPods, which is why Bang & Olufsen’s new wireless charging earphones have piqued my interest. Along with offering a slightly elevated experience (handsome leather charging case, stylish gem-like design, unmatched sound quality), the beautifully designed earphones are fitted with Qi wireless charging, making them the only truly wireless earphone experience. ($350) – Berit, senior editor

Brooklyn Candle Studio

Brooklyn Candle Studio's Escapist Collection

The eco friendly candle makers identified a few favorite places in the world, "places we’ve traveled to that have a permanent place in our olfactory memories." Scents from Maui, Ojai, Kyoto, and the Tuileries are hand-poured with 100-percent soy wax and essential oils for a clean, transportive burn. ($38) – Jeralyn, editorial director

SHESPOKE Custom Makeup Salon

We were big fans of Rouge, the SoHo makeup salon created by actress and Popupla contributing editor Stephanie March and her partner Rebecca Perkins. Now we're even bigger fans of what it has become: SHESPOKE, the studio where I'll be going to create personalized lipsticks and glosses. Just in time for Fashion Week. ($38) — Pavia, CEO

Stasher Reusable Bags

In 2019 I'm setting intentions to limit waste, especially single-use plastic. It's a challenge however, as I'm always on the go and in need of bags to store travel products, snacks, and to keep things organized. That's why I'm excited to try reusable, silicone storage bags that are a great alternative to plastic. They're dishwasher friendly, microwavable, and easy to clean. (Great for those unavoidable face wash explosions that happen when you get off an airplane.) ($12) – California, intern

Traveler’s Protection Balm

I'm never not looking for a good hand cream and this eco-conscious travel-friendly skin balm is on my to-try list. In addition to keeping hands moisturized, the rich butter, which is made with active botanicals like eucalyptus and camphor, can be used to shield skin from dry air or sooth chapped lips. ($30) – Berit

Peak Design Slide Lite

I've been on the lookout for a good camera strap lately to help distribute the weight of the heavy lenses I use when I travel, and I think this versatile strap could be it. It can be worn around your neck, shoulder, or as a sling, and is smooth on one side for easy use. Plus it comes with four anchors, which means I swap the strap between both my cameras very easily. ($50) – Daniel, editor

Puddle Bugs

I'm totally charmed by a new children's book about impish and resourceful surfer bugs who play in puddles. Where we see ripples, they see killer waves. A Leaky Fire Hydrant, the first installment, is set in NYC. Adventures in more cities around the world will follow, as will apps and videos. I'm waiting for the Netflix series. ($17) - Pavia

Cap Beauty Matcha Sticks

I love matcha. It gives me calming, yet super focused energy without the afternoon coffee crash. And with so many matcha cafes popping up in NYC, it's becoming easier to make the caffeine switch. As a portable option, I've got my eye on the Cap Beauty sticks that you can easily add into hot/cold water for a matcha on-the-move. ($34) California, intern
