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?
It may be sweater weather but some of us over here are kind of tired of wearing winter clothes on repeat. Next time you get dressed in the early hours of the morning, switch up your go-to turtleneck for a tank top or bodysuit and a cardigan. We love the low-cut on this one and the contrasting buttons adding a bit of accessories and color when your eyes are not yet fully opened. It will serve you well this time of year, as well as on a long-haul flight or during chilly summer nights!
There are more than enough toners and exfoliants on the market – some retail at high street and drugstore prices while others are targeted towards their high end clientele. If you’re not keen and/or don’t have time to DIY your own toner in your kitchen, but are also tired of spending your hard earned money on a very much famous P50 lotion by a French cosmetics brand, then this potion by Moon Juice is your answer. At just under £40, it does the same job as any of the above and you’ll thank us later for saving you the extra bucks!
Even if you’re not an avid reader, I can guarantee you that you will thoroughly enjoy reading this masterpiece by Walt Disney’s CEO himself. Bob Iger has not only influenced the way we watch comics, he has reinvented the industry completely. He took over the company when it was going through a particularly difficult time and changed things around in due course – sticking to what matters and what its loyal customers and viewers came to Disney for in the first place. In this book, Iger shares advice and his ideas on one of the most popular companies in the world in a charismatic and optimistic manner.
Clean skincare is a trend everyone want to get on board with these days – and we’re here for it! Luckily for us, one of our go-to body and hand lotions Aussie company Aesop has created the perfect nasty-free spray deodorant. Free of aluminium and filled with natural oils from lemongrass to thyme, it’s guaranteed to keep you smelling fresh throughout the day! Side note: our Wear pick isn’t typically a beauty item, but we couldn’t help but swoon over this one – plus, it’s actually something you’d want to *wear*!
What’s on your wish-list?
