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?
If you thought the slouchy bag and pouch trend we saw rising in the past few months is over, you’re wrong. The best part of it though is that a very similar version to Bottega Veneta’s must pouch has landed in Mango’s latest collection. The size, availability of colors (that’s right, she comes in black and white too) and price point all point us in the direction of completing the purchase. Get it while they’re still available, we sure want it!
Dry/hot/humid, just a few feeling we’ve been experiencing in the past month of January alone. Now that the first month of 2020 is finally over, let’s get started on getting us ready for the rest of the year. First up is our skin! We want to keep it as moisturized, dewy and hydrated as possible – wonder what we’re rubbing onto our face these days? The below moisturizer by Paula’s Choice; it’s filled with ceramide and a collagen support complex, helping your skin get that plumpness and elasticity it deserves.
On our current reading list is one of Bill Gates’ favorite reads of 2019: Elastic by Leonard Mlodinow. We’re only just past the introductory chapter and already feel our brains thinking more than per usual. Whether that’s a good sign or not, doesn’t matter – the author’s goal is to help you embrace change and make your brain think and process things in a different manner. Rather than relying on comfort, the author suggests to embrace ambiguity and contradiction. A definite worthwhile read!
Long lasting and chic looking jewelry that doesn’t cut a hole through your wallet is all the hype these days. Take one look at Friday’s Spotlight On feature to see what our team is currently eyeing and you’ll notice a pattern amongst chain link pieces. Easy to wear and subtle, this set of necklace and bracelet is the perfect addition to any look – and at under £200, hard to resist!
