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.
We all can relate to that feeling nowadays, right? All routines are upside down, we don’t know what day it is and even lost the count of how many days in a row we have been wearing the same pajamas.
Well, that’s at least how I feel.
But, as Skype is queen of these social distancing days and high speed wifi has been as essential for people as stocking toilet paper, I have 7 great five-minutes-looks for you to look fantastic in on the Skype screen.
Because remember, even though life may seem to be on paus doesn’t mean your style has to be.
This is a great, like really really great, way of re-locating the focus from a tired face. I present to you: the giant bow! Am I right? I just put a blazer on over the t-shirt I slept in, and et voilá! Ready to Skype with the Hobnob Journal team.

A perfect look if you haven’t washed your hair in a week *like me* and want something extra, like “the next step” from a regular “scrunchie bun”. Great for chit-chating with friends.

Or should I say crown?
That was at least what Fanny asked me yesterday when I wore this hairstyle haha. Needs exactly 2.5 minute to do! The famous man bun but instead of doing a regular top knot, I did the knot in this hair clip. And hello, here I am! Wearing my PJ shirt from Arket (you really can’t tell right?) and earrings from Céline.
Having a serious business meeting?
The sleek ponytail look with clean hair pins is always a safe card. Ultimate for important business meetings? Of course I am wearing PJ pants under this, who do you take me for?
I bought these hair pins just a couple of days ago, the day before all the stores closed down and I am sooooo happy I did. Been wearing them everyday since. They go with everything. But then again, of course they do, they are hair pins.

Maybe the speediest look of them all? No guidance needed.

Or are you more like me and can’t decide what style to do? Wear them all. Also, it’s a great icebreaker to start the meeting by explaining all the weird har clips you’re wearing.
The cap is a true hero piece for above situations. Perfect to hide unwanted (Chanel) bags under your eyes. And you look trés cool.

Could you even tell that I am not wearing any make up in all the pictures (don’t scroll back and look cheater!!)? No I thought so (or maybe you did hehe). Hair accessories are e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g. And really life saviors for all your cyber meetings. You are welcome.
