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?
Lounging around at home in a pair of sweats doesn’t have to be all that lazy. Even though we’re not always (or ever) getting properly dressed up while working at our made up desk, a piece of jewelry can really change our mood and look. This week, we’re really loving these multi-colored drop earrings by Oscar de la Renta – a little sparkle can go a long way and the site is currently having 25% off, so run don’t walk!
If being home has had any impact on our skin or hair it’s definitely positive. We don’t remember the last time we used eye liner or curled our hair, let alone blow dry it! So in order to keep this low maintenance routine going well, we recommend starting at the root – with a really tough detangler brush like this one by Wet Brush. Easy to use and does close to no damage to our strands, it’s also under £10, so that’s a bonus!
After spending a good chunk of our free time wrapped up in a good book, we’re turning to podcasts. These days feel very different – so instead of being alone with our thoughts while taking a daily walk, we decide to turn on a podcast. There are so many good ones out there, but Planet Money by NPR is one of the best ones. Real, no BS, and the economy easily explained – it’s very relevant to today’s situation and a definite worth while listen!
It’s all about adding some sunshine and rainbow to these early days of spring. We’ve got our eyes on this tie dye cardigan which looks so good styled as is – with a white tee and blue jeans, but we look forward to wearing this on repeat with everything else in our closets. From white sun dresses to denim shorts and sneakers, this will be in heavy rotation!
