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 actually trying to consume less these few months before Christmas. Something about the holiday stress coming up is just making me feel so ill at ease. So this list about my shopping list will not so much be me wanting to shop, but use what I already got and maybe add something vintage. How about that?
Trench coats are like crushes. You go around thinking about them, how you are gonna be so good together and how much you long for the time to be you two. But when (more like if, right?) that happens it’s not what you imagined it to be.
But the amount of images I save on Instagram of cool women wearing cool trench coats must mean something! No? It’s supposed to be us two, me and the trench, I just know it.
But the season is slipping away from me, living in Scandi land and all. So now I must be creative. Layer my trench coats with denim jackets, puffer vests and other warm garments. Maybe this should be a story here on Hobnob?
Has anyone missed out on Toteme launching boots? And more precise, croco boots?
I will not be signing up here for early access ( maybe you wil?l) but will be using the ones I already have in my closet even more.
For my upcoming ski trip
I will go all in vintage like our Instagram (and IRL now thanks to Instagram!) friend Wannacoo.
Also yes, one can use regular bags in the slopes. Preferably bum bags or neck ones. But we’ll get back to that.

Ok so since I do actually own a leather scarf I might have to buy this. But I figured it’s one small purchase to make all my existing jackets more fun.
Someone once said it’s all in the details and I unarguably agree.
I was at the National Museum of Arts in Stockholm the other day and I got the confirmation that my next big home investment is gonna be a good one. I could really see it in my home. I have had my eyes on the Cuba Chair by Carl Hansen for some time now and I feel like now is the time to get it.
