Minimalists, we clearly are not. Here at R29 headquarters, many of us are hiding a very
dirty messy secret: No matter how pristinely curated the tops of our desks may be, below the surface lies another story. Some of us are better than others, but the truth is, most of us are sitting atop a trove of weird, wacky junk — er, sorry, super-important, essential treasures.
We decided it was time to finally let our stashes see the light of day. And, from our resident DIY queen's bedazzled tool kit and a certain editor's oddly extensive assortment of facial mists to a top-secret whiskey stash and — no lie — a full, 12-piece dining set, the collections are finally being laid bare in the slides ahead.
