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?
No better way to add a little bit of colour (yes, white is a color!) to a cold weather look than with these two-toned babies! The colorblock effect gives you both sides perfect when you want to wear all black with a hint of light. What’s more, they’re £160 and the buckle belt adds a little something extra to it. Run, don’t walk, they’re definitely worth the splurge!
The never-ending quest to finding the right toner that doesn’t dry up and rids you of a long day out has hopefully come to an end. Meet the 11% AHA power toner by Youth To The People – a beauty brand we’re currently obsessing over. Their products are affordable, accessible and contain no b.s. Oh and two of their main ingredients are lactic acid and glycolic black tea: the ideal combination to fight oily skin, and that’s one problem we know one or two things about!
It’s no secret that we’re huge fans of Chrissy Teigen, her natural wit and humour is something we could all learn from. But besides her highly entertaining Instagram and tweets, she’s also a true chef. We bought her first book back in 2017, and got excited when she released a second one (linked here). If you’re a real (and old) follower of hers, you might remember her old website – that got deleted and he is now back with this true gem that launched yesterday: https://cravingsbychrissyteigen.com – we’ll be cooking away through her recipes and so should you!
Another wardrobe basic we like to switch up from time to time is a classic rib tank. The reason why? They can lose their shape and the crisp white colour has a tendency of fading. This week we’re stocking up on them and this brand is one of our favorites when it comes to comfort and quality. Sure, they’re not the cheapest, but at just £45 we believe they’re worth it. And if white isn’t your thing, it comes in more colours!
What’s on your wish-list?
