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?
Now that we’re fully immersed into Autumn and all things pumpkin spice, we thought we’d also spice up our accessories department in the form of a new evening bag. This patent-leather piece by Les Petits Joueurs is not only on sale! but the perfect bag to leave the office with – stash it into your tote in the morning and take it out come 6pm. We love the embroidered note, and the short handle is ideal for balancing two drinks simultaneously! Get yours before it sells out!
It’s no surprise that we’re big fans of any facial serums – the smoother and lighter texture gives our stress and dirt-imbibed skin enough moisture without overdoing it. We love this botanical one by SALT, because A. it’s infused with Vitamin C which we all desperately need in this kind of moody weather, and B. it’s filled with organic and plant-based ingredients, as well as a ton of antioxidants – ideal for brightening up our skin and softening aging lines.
In honor of the first week of October which marks Mental Health Awareness week, we rounded up our favorite books to better understand what goes on in the minds of those struggling with issues on a daily basis. This book by Claire Eastham gives you an insight into a personal conflict with anxiety and the challenges that come with it. We guarantee a beautifully written piece, filled with easy humour and practical tips to try if you’re facing similar trials.
After recently discovering Lisa Says Gah! via none other than Instagram, we fell head over heels with their both emerging and vintage pieces by some of the most creative designers we’ve seen in a while. The selection is well curated, at affordable price points and for all seasons of the year. Perfect for those of us that spend more time on a plane than in an office, if you know what we mean! We’ll be wearing this winter white mohair knit on our next outing, and we highly suggest to follow suit!
What’s on your wish-list?
