like / want /need was born in the winter of 1986, and immediately fell victim to a shopping addiction. True story: my second word, at 6 months old, was “pocketbook.” I haven’t shut up since.

More recently, this blog was started during a bout of unemployment so I could write and day-dream about all of the things I couldn’t afford (technically then, my first post should have been on health insurance). In between drinking wine in the early afternoon in my pajamas and my daily nap at 3pm, I would compulsively scour the internet for impressively decorated houses and heinously overpriced purses to distract myself from the crippling misery of a $.47 checking account balance.


I’ve since landed a great job that in no way utilizes the Bachelor’s degree in Photojournalism I have, but does afford me the luxury to buy lots of stuff.

And boy, do I ever.

In fact, in the time it has taken you to read this, I’ve purchased 3 more things.

And speaking of 3, here’s a picture of me when I was 3 years old:

These days, I make it a point to have fully clothed Cabbage Patch dolls, but that indelible expression of sass? That’s still going strong. Oh, and those bangs might be making a comeback one of these days.

I’m Erin. I like / want / need a lot of things. I’m glad you’re here.

Got a product you want me to check out? Do you have hate mail or perhaps a sexually-charge haiku you’d like to share with me? email: likewantneed [at] gmail [dot] com
