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?
We’ve been huge fans of creative summer bags ever since classic raffia and straw bags were reinvented by bright designers a few years back. This acrylic box bag meshed with a silk handle by Montunas is the perfect accessory this summer. Stash your belongings in the clever pouch for less visibility, and consider yourself accessorized without even trying.
It’s safe to say that summer travels can be exhausting – the contrast in temperatures and climate can have an impact on our physical appearance and no one wants to look tired upon their arrival. Meet the All-In-One facial, created by Hanacure – no need to squeeze in a facial in between trips and simply take this with you on the go for a quick but efficient facial. You’ll get a lifting serum and a gelling solution to be blended together and applied to your skin with the brush. Expect a youthful glow and a replenished skin after just one use! The best part? You can subscribe to get them delivered every month!
If you had asked us a year ago whether meditation is something we practice on the regular, no would have been the instant answer. Fast-forward a few months, and a daily meditation of even just a few minutes can change our mental state in a second. This book by Harvard collaborators Goleman and Davidson shows findings from world-class meditators about how brain and mind training can benefit us, in the long and short run. Forget what you thought about meditating, and enter a whole new realm about what it actually does.
Sleeper has long been a favorite at TWC HQ – their walking pyjamas make wearing anything outside the bedroom chic and casual. Now, long sleeved pj’s can be a tad warm during summertime, which is why we were delighted to come across this linen robe which comes in both black and white to top off a one-piece bathing suit, a bikini or simply throw on over shorts and a crop top. It comes with a detailed belt, and makes us want to wear this all day and night!
What’s on your wish-list?
