This week was bookended by two Christmas parties and their corresponding hangovers, and somewhere in-between I managed to do some work but very little else (unless watching back-to-back episodes of The Office counts as something, which I’m afraid it doesn’t). Add depressing winter rain and never-ending darkness to the mix, and this week has felt like one really long, really boozy, and completely knackering night out. Now that it’s the weekend, I just want to free-boob around the house and become one with my sofa. But first! The few note-able things from the hours that I was sober and conscious.
An alarming number of my friends in the US have joined MLMs and hooo boy, Facebook is even less fun now than it was before! Luckily, The Dream podcast is here to validate my MLM snark and educate me on just how dark and despicable some of these get-rich-quick “not a pyramid scheme” schemes work. YIKES.
I bought my 2019 Standard Issue No. 03 Notebook before the end of the year like some kind of organised person and I’m already looking forward to cracking it open at the start of the year. I bought it in mint green instead of my usual grey, and tbh I can already tell that it’s going to make next year more cheerful. Bring. It. On.
I’ve been giving my Everlane cashmere a rest and am almost exclusively wearing this BIO DYNAMIC sweatshirt these days. It looks just as good paired with a smart skirt as it does David’s pyjama pants, and I think it’s the perfect top for the holiday season when round-the-clock drinking is actively encouraged. Not only is it comfy and cute, it’s a great gift for the wine-lovers in your life. I should know because it was gifted to me and I absolutely love it. (Thank you, Caro!)
