Our Highly Selective

Our Favorite Things

When emerging from a pandemic, a few new necessities are in order. Close friends and frequent collaborators Ryan Dziadul, a vice president at Jonathan Adler, and Katie Sturino, the author and founder of Megababe, each have their own very distinct personal style. But when they put their minds together, great things happen—like this smart curation of 2022 essentials that everyone can agree on

Jonathan Adler


Gilded Muse Scented Candle

“My mother taught me two things: a) Never show up to someone’s house empty-handed; b) Make sure the garage door is fully open before you back out. For the first, my go-to is a Jonathan Adler candle. I love that this one has been graffitied with real gold. Plus, once the candle’s done, scoop out the wax and … voilà! You’ve got a sweet spot for succulents.” —R.D.



Megaman Friction Fighter Go Stick

“I would have chosen this even if Katie wasn’t my B.F.F.—cross my heart. On your thighs, in your shoes to prevent blisters, wherever there’s a little rub and/or tug, this stuff is game-changing.” —R.D.



Thigh Rescue Anti-Friction Stick

“Now that I’m spending my winters in Palm Beach, I couldn’t be happier that I solved thigh chafe!” —K.S.



Original Matchbook Print

“I love matchbook diaries. My husband and I had our wedding reception at Lafayette, so for one of our anniversaries I gave him (well, I guess the truth is, I really gave myself) a photo of the matchbox from Lafayette. It has pride of place on our gallery wall—and in our hearts.” —R.D.

Katie Sturino


Body Talk

“Not to plug my own book after plugging my brand, but … getting messages from women that have been helped by Body Talk is precisely why I do what I do.” —K.S.

La Prairie


Skin Caviar Eye Lift

“I’m lucky to be able to try out a lot of skin care (and unlucky to have developed crow’s feet as I age). Bottom line is, this stuff works. Yes, it’s expensive. Yes, it’s worth it.” —R.D.



Theragun Mini

“Yet another work-from-home necessity. If you’re sitting most of the time, which we probably all are, the Theragun helps you to not feel like one big knot.” —K.S.



The Men’s Chase Cashmere Sweater in Cream & Navy

“Wearing Kule makes me feel cool. I’ve never met a cashmere sweater I didn’t like, and this one is no exception. Their iconic red-and-blue ding-a-ling at the hem makes me smile.” —R.D.



Powerbot Robot Vacuum

“The Powerbot is one of my top-three best friends. Our apartment has tile floors, and let me tell you—no one works harder than my Powerbot.” —K.S.
