To socialize or talk informally preferably over a drink. Word forms: 3rd person singular present tense hobnobs, present participle hobnobbing, past tense, past participle hobnobbed.
But honestly. Hobnob is a safe space for women who prefer iced coffee over a perfectly curated wardrobe. It’s is a daycare center for women who are intrigued by trends, but also don’t care. It is an open bar for those who swear on vintage Chanel and whose pension funds hang in their closets.

I can’t seem to focus on anything else but dresses right now. Is it because June just arrived? Bc I have a bottle of ice cold rosé in my fridge calling my name throughout the apartment? Or simply because vacation season is here? It may be a little bit of everything I think.
Later this summer I am reaching the midpoint of my 20s, the big 2 5. And I have told myself that I deserve something pretty to wear on that day, to celebrate getting this far in one piece. I am gonna celebrate this huge day (OR IS IT A BIRTHDAY WEEK I THINK SO) in Italy which makes the pressure of this dress even greater. My expectations are not high they are in the fucking sky.
So, which kind of dress am I going for? Just like my journey towards finding my prince charming, I probably will kiss a few frogs before I find the one. But one thing I know for sure is that it’s not gonna be a long one. It’s gonna be short. Like crazy almost flashing my ass-short.
Yes, this birthday will be very very graceful. I will hit 25 like a lady.
And for all of you planning for parties this summer, these are for you too.
“I am a birthday princess and therefore I shall look like one”
But I’ll probably do heels. Or maybe, I actually won’t.

Who doesn’t love a little puff silhouette and frill action Imma right?? Those attributes are usually a home run for me. But as I am aging I like to think that I can widen my horizon a bit, and since so many brands are pushing for the new sexy, who am I to say no right away. So, I am tempted to go for a cupcake, but at the same time, I can’t help to look at all the 90s flirt dresses.
“The new sexy”
But am I though?????? My fingers can’t even spell S E X Y without cringing. But looking at Marta here, I am totally feeling it.

So, which one will it be? I am gonna do the adult thing and postpone this decision until the last minute and then stress out about not having anything to wear.
