Welcome to Want/Need, a daily roundup of the things our Deputy Editor, Emily Popp, is currently coveting. It might be a pair of pink leather loafers that make her feel like she’s got her s*#t together, or a pool float in the shape of an avocado (because she’s not over the novelty pool float trend). Or maybe it’s as random as, like, dryer sheets. Basically this is all the stuff she’s obsessed with. Poppy’s picks, if you will.

Pink Ceramic Pumpkin

TJ Maxx
available at TJ Maxx $16.99 SHOP NOW

Well, well, well. I just found the only Halloween decoration I’ll ever need in life. Actually, this millennial pink ceramic pumpkin is almost so chic that it rises above the category of “Halloween decoration.”

Paddywax Salt + Sage Candle

Amazon
available at Amazon $26 SHOP NOW

It seems September through November the only scent that anybody cares about is “pumpkin spice.” I’m actually not all that big on the typical pumpkin-apple-caramel scents of fall. That’s why I’m obsessed with this Salt + Sage candle from Paddywax, one of my all-time favorite candle brands for all their different collections’ gorgeous containers. This one is the perfect blend of crisp sea salt and sage. And yes, it may not be the “traditional” fall scent, but it’s perfect for a cool autumnal night. 

Papyrus Sushi Sticky Note Box (Set of 5)

Papyrus
available at Papyrus $6.48 SHOP NOW

I’m one of those people who goes through sticky notes like water. I really don’t use the “reminder” function on my iPhone that often. I’m more of a pen and paper girl. I would be lost without my sticky notes. And I don’t think I’ve ever seen a cuter set of sticky notes than these sushi-themed ones from Papyrus. The little cat and dog rolls sitting on a serving board…it’s too sweet!

Ancient Harvest Mac & Cheese Mild Cheddar Elbows

Ancient Harvest
available at Ancient Harvest Price varies SHOP NOW

If I were a superhero and I had a weakness, it would be boxed macaroni and cheese. Just wave it in front of me and I’m instantly powerless. There’s the nostalgia factor, but it’s also just dang delicious. But as an adult I can’t remember the last time I actually bought a box because, ya know, chemicals and stuff. I am trying to cut chemicals where I can, and I figured boxed mac n’ cheese was a good place to start. But I’ve recently discovered Ancient Harvest, which is made from “legume and quinoa noodles” aka plant-based and gluten-free. I was afraid it would taste too…healthy, which is not what I sign up for when I whip up a box of macaroni and cheese. Instead it tasted hearty and creamy, just how my inner ‘90s kid likes it. I’m obsessed with their entire line of product.
