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 am feeling very torn this autumn. One side of me is pink, yellow and Italian while the other half is minimal and beige!
After a trip to Copenhagen I’m seeing 90’s glasses everywhere, Danish designers, both people like Poppy Kalas and Hans Wegner fill me with inspiration and has made me adamant on living in the Danish capital before I die. I just need a 5 bedroom apartment for all the furniture and all my friends… Someone willing to sponsor?
This fall is all about good material, good books, good food, good friends and all other things good good good. My therapist told me to work on my mindfulness so now I spend my mornings and lunches meditating. I’m gonna be the best I can be. Werk!
Here’s some things I’m thinking about right now.
Really nice carry-on!
This aluminum one from American Tourister made my recent trip to Copenhagen a joy.
I’m on the hunt for a full length nougat or oatmeal colored belted cashmere coat like the one the mom in Home Alone wears. I might get one from Vestiaire or perhaps this pale one from British brand King & Tuckfield.
One of my favorites on Instagram right now is photographer Ceen Wahren and her romantic but slightly dystopian pictures of Bauhaus chairs in a field. That chair is me? Beige and minimal but also some flowers?
I’m googling Gloria von Thurn und Taxis aka Princess T’n’T. Her personal style and life story could keep me occupied for hours. Just look at this hair!
I love everything pink right now. Flowers, blankets, sweaters. I want to wear brown corduroy trousers with a pink cashmere sweater and white shirt, perhaps a ridiculous bag, we’ll see. Here’s some flowers in my kitchen.
Ahhhh, fall = candles! I found these ones in a second hand shop and I can’t light them, they’re too pretty. Here matched with my two fave scents right now, Frangipani Flower and Star Magnolia from Jo Malone.
Shop Jo Malone
I’ve said it before and I say it again. I want to look like the heir to a cashmere empire dressed in all their nuances of beige.

Gold jewelry is everywhere. I’m craving the Anchor Double Bracelet from All Blues.
