Nothing exudes the start of a new season and quarter than a brand-new column – which brings us to the here and now, fellow readers! We’re excited to announce the first edition of Want, Need, Read, Wear – the weekly feature will encompass the top pick from our team for each category. WANT is a current must-have and the kind of product which when we decide to ‘sleep on it’ makes an appearance in our dreams and is one of the first things that cross our minds when we sip that first cup of coffee in the morning. NEED is as you may assume a pure necessity – whether it’s that *one* it bag or accessory we’re spotting everywhere or the latest Amazon buy we plan to reorder. READ isn’t limited to a book, (although we’ve got a handful of best-sellers we’re dying to share with you) it can be a recent article we’ve bookmarked or the latest newsletter we subscribed to and read on our way to work. Lastly, WEAR will introduce solely fashion purchases, including but not limited to that one pair of white trousers we must add to our summer collection or those just under $10 heart shaped sunglasses available on Amazon Prime, and happen to be a fraction of the original YSL pair (because you know we love a bargain!).Let’s jump right into it, shall we?
If you haven’t read it in the news yet, London is going through a major heat-wave, which is nice in theory because it’s sunny – but what the city is missing is a tiny convenient thing called A/C! There is pretty much nowhere you can find with air-con blasting through, except a few gyms and perhaps the freezer section of the supermarket! Which is why we urgently want to wear anything airy, flowy and preferably white! This top and bottom is on our current wish list, high up there! PS: it’s also on sale!
Now that we’re officially in summer mode, it’s time to get your skin ready for sun rays and protect it against any burns or worse, sun strokes! We love this facial sunscreen by La Roche-Posay, it’s light-weight, long-lasting, non-greasy, and best of all its format makes it the most convenient skin product to carry on all-day long. Once you get used to it, you won’t leave the house without it! PS: for those of you looking for some coverup, we recommend the tinted version, which is also mineral so no chance for any after effects!
After finally finishing Brain Food, which was undeniably one of the most insightful books about food, nutrients and what is needed for a good functioning brain, as well as how to prevent it from getting damaged – we’re now back into our more intriguing reads, and this week we’re loving Bad Blood by John Carreyrou. If you’ve ever been curious about what really goes on behind the popular Silicon Valley startup scene, then this book is a must! PS: in case the title didn’t give it away yet, the book is based on Theranos, the high profiled company created by Elizabeth Holmes, and its recent downfall.
You know what goes well with an all-white summer look? A pair of printed sandals in one of this season’s most coveted fruits: cherries! The perfect to elevate your outfit from day to night, and the light pastel tones make for endless legs without overpowering the rest of your look. Snatch these before it’s too late – and yes, you guessed it right, they’re 40% off!
What’s on your wish-list?
