Our beautiful friend Shan-Mei has been an integral part of the Everyday Needs team for the past eighteen months. As cheerful store manager, super organised logistics co-ordinator (and in-house personal trainer) Shan-Mei is always a delight to be around. We are sad to farewell her as she starts the next chapter of her life, but so excited to see what she accomplishes next! Here Shan-Mei shares an Edit of her personal favourites from the Everyday Needs offering.

1. Maryse enzyme-refine cleanser


If there’s one thing I use everyday, it's this cleanser. A staff favourite and having done a lot of the stock ordering, I can personally attest to the fact that these products are handmade locally in small batches - literally just a couple of doors down from our shop. The bio-boost serum and mineral dew are also faves of mine and make perfect little gifts too!!


2. Body brush


I don’t use this brush often enough but when I do… boy oh boy! I mean, who doesn’t love baby smooth skin?! I also think it’s really cool that these brushes are made by visually impaired crafts people using traditional Swedish techniques.  

 


3. Norwegian lambswool blanket


The recent chilly evenings as well as the generous size of this beautiful blanket were already enough to convince me... But then a friend at work spoke of how a blanket is a piece you will treasure for a really long time, and that sold me! This blanket now reminds me of her, and the trademark green reminds me of my time at Everyday Needs... #cheesy


4. Arnold Circus stools


From side table, to stool, to lazy floor TV-dinner table… a classic. Theres new colours and sizes out now, too! How to choose…?


5. Falcon enamel tumblers


I always aim to reduce waste and one of the easiest moves I made was getting myself a trusty glass Keepcup (which we also stock). Recently I got a couple of these enamel tumblers to keep in the car as a backup and to share with friends - a warning, espressos can be hot to hold but manageable! Also great for a cheeky wine when outdoors!

Personal note: “Thank you to everyone I’ve encountered and worked with during my time here at Everyday Needs. All the lovely customers that I got to know on a first name basis, everyone on our shop block, the wonderful suppliers and talented crafts people - it's truly been a pleasure. Also a massive thanks to the EDN team (namely my core girls - Lou and Neeve)… Thank you xx”
