Cara Jammet, my wardrobe stylist, is hooked on Skinny Dipped Almonds ($25). They're full of protein and fiber, so you don't feel guilty grabbing a handful or two.

My makeup artist, Joe Simon, picked up Viriditas Botanicals SOS Mosquito Repellant ($16 (not pictured)) at the Hotel San José when we were in Austin during South by Southwest. We both used it during my Feedback event down there, and it was the first time we didn't get any bug bites!

Suraya is a Lebanese concept with a fresh market and a full bakery in Philadelphia. The kebabs, the grape leaves, the falafel—everything is delicious!

Bubbles instantly add festivity to any drink, and grapefruit and mint keep things summery and fresh.
