Welcome to Want/Need, a daily roundup of the things HelloGiggles’ Editorial Director and Deputy Editor are madly in love with, and what we — you guessed it — WANT/NEED. Our recommendations will include (but are not limited to) the perfect sandal, mom jeans you should totally wear to the office, pretty water bottles, and lipsticks that will make you feel unstoppable. Check back every day for new picks and deals!
La Mer Crème de la Mer
La Mer has been on my bucket list for years. Almost every celebrity swears by this moisturizer, and it’s been around since the dinosaurs. But the price tag deterred me (even though I’ve spent more on way dumber shit), so I’ve held off from buying. But then one day, La Mer sent me a bottle (thanks to Sr. Beauty Editor Marie Lodi), and my skin hasn’t been the same. It truly does feel and look different — clearer, softer, better.
I even had engagement pics taken on Instagram, because my relationship with La Mer is worthy of celebration.
Feminist Baby by Loryn Brantz
Buzzfeed’s Loryn Brantz (you may recognize her from those viral “If Disney Princesses Had Real Human Features” illustrations — those were all originally hers) came out with Feminist Baby, a book for feminist babies. It’s the best, and I’m gifting this to my toddler niece the next time I see her, because she needs to learn how to start taking down the patriarchy already.
Typo Premium Eye Mask
I’m flying to Hawaii next week, and I’ll need this for my six-hour flight. Obviously.
Beachgold Watermelon Mini Shirtdress
This dress has tiny little watermelon seeds all over it!
Forever 21 Cherry Pool Tube
I’ll never get sick of the novelty pool float trend.
Kate Spade Strawberries Apron
Watermelon, cherries, strawberries. I sort of have a red fruit thing going here, don’t I?
