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 spring is somehow underway, we’re looking at brighter tones, laidback looks and plenty of light wash denim. One of our ultimate go-to outfits is a simple white tee and a pair of cropped high waisted straight cut jeans. Add a pair of sling backs or leather loafers and you’re good to go. And if you’re the type that doesn’t leave the house without accessorizing, look no further – these gold toned hoops are under £50 and the perfect golden touch for a relaxed look.
Nécessaire is one of these brands that you come across on Instagram and ultimately fall in love with. The sleek packaging, the french branding and the all organic and natural ingredients make it the perfect addition to introduce into our skincare routine. Available on Goop, this body wash is one of our favorites – fragrance free which is always a bonus (shop our favorite fragrance-free cleanser here) and doesn’t dry out the skin post shower. Expect the feel of luxurious oils and a nourishing feel to get you ready for the day, or bed!
It’s no secret that Elizabeth Holmes made huge headlines a few years ago when she started being featured in every magazine, conference and awards ceremony for being the next Steve Jobs and pure genius. Sound a bit too good to be true? That’s because it is – after reading John Carreyrou’s Bad Blood in less than 48 hours last summer, I couldn’t get enough of the now rather disastrous not to mention criminal ending of Theranos. You can imagine my delight upon getting recommended The Dropout, presented by Rebecca Jarvis – it will give you all you need on the ongoing investigation on Holmes and the interviews (not Holmes!) are outstanding.
Gone are pyjamas and cashmere lounge sets – we’re making room for warm weather sleepwear with the ultimate luxury, a silk chemise. If you’ve already transitioned from a cotton pillowcase to a silk one, you’ll understand just how comfortable your sleep has become. Give these silk slips a try and you’ll never look back. We love the sky blue colors for the ultimate spring mood.
What’s on your wish-list?
