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.
This has been the decade of beauty. Sheet masks, nail serums and eyebrows on fleek has been the talk of every town thanks to cyberspace. What the 20s will offer in terms of beauty I won’t prophesy but I will tell you this: I am planning on ending this beauty decade with a bang.
Glitter can never be too much
The past years has made be more brave when it comes to going that extra mile with my make-up. As teenager all I wanted with my beauty look was to look less like a teenager without hitting the drag queen area. I guess I was pretty successful but the older I got the more I realized how I am missing out on.
However, my love for sleeping in on weekdays has made me really thrifty with my routine. Not on New Year’s Eve though. Maybe glitter in my entire face is a good idea?
The everything but black eyeliner has really made a case for itself this past year. I have tried the yellow wing, but are now ready to go lighter and whiter.
The shimmer or nah Q has been a big one this decade. In the comment section of every beauty brand’s instagram I’ve seen girls arguing for their opinion on the matter: should the colors on the palette have shimmer or not.
I think yes.
I remember back in the late 90s early 00 when pink eyeshadow were like highlighter is today. People always thought it was a good idea. Years later promised myself never to go there. Guess what? I did.
So maybe I should finish this decade with the beauty look I’ve liked the best? A bold colored, glossy lid.
