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?
After divulging to you where we stock up on basics every time we’re in need of a bodysuit, plain t-shirt or turtleneck, it’s only fair we show you what’s currently sitting in our shopping carts and fits the basic department to the nine. This ribbed midi dress with a half open collar and thigh slit is all we need to gracefully transition into spring. Layer it with a biker jacket and a pair of ankle boots or sling backs and you’re good to go!
When it comes to skincare, we gotta admit: low-key and maintenance is what we’re after. There just aren’t enough hours in a day to spend additional ones on hair, makeup and treatments. One goal of ours is to keep our lashes full and long especially when applying mascara isn’t an option. We’ve been using the trusted Revitalash for a year and have seen amazing results. However the price tag isn’t exactly low, and after running out of our last tube, it’s time to switch things up. We’re trying a homemade remedy by using castor oil to make eyebrows and eyelashes grow. The oil is packed with essential fatty acids, like omega 6 and 9 to promote hair growth. Use a clean spoolie, dip it into the oil and brush across brows before going to bed. The same goes for the lashes, swipe across eyelashes before bed.
If you love Amazon as much as we do then this book should be on your next reading list. We ourselves just got it into the mail after reading rave reviews and can’t wait to dive straight in. The book tells the story of how Amazon started from just selling books to becoming the most coveted retailer in the world. There’s truly nothing you can’t find on the ‘Zon and Jeff Bezos makes sure of that by following his relentless pursuit of developing a specific corporate culture and revolutionizing buying on the Internet
Fine jewelry and diamonds are all well and good, until you lose a sentimental piece or feel uncomfortable wearing them in all situations. Luckily for us, some of our most trusted retailers design gorgeous jewelry lines to incorporate in your day-to-day uniform without outshining you. Our latest crush? This pair by H&M, giving us all the feels when we’re 3 days away from the first day of spring but a winter coat is still a must.
What’s on your wish-list?
