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.

There is something magical about this time a year. And I am not talking about the upcoming holiday season or the fact that one might get something off that list one sent to Santa (also known as mom in my case). No, I am talking about winter and the very specific activity that comes with that and only that. Skiing.
I love skiing not only because I love being in nature but because of everything that comes with it. The cold crispy weather, the bright snow, the good parties (pre-pandemic, that is*), the aperol spritzes and the hot chocolate. I could go on forever. But there is one thing I like almost as much as the actual skiing (oh well) and that is the equipment. To get super nerdy about ski boots, goggles and overalls is a lifestyle I easily adapt to. The Gore-Tex part of the ski industry isn’t really my scene though, I am totally stuck in nostalgia village. Nothing beats the 80s in Verbier or Chamonix, am I not right? (the questionmark is accurately placed since I was born mid 90s).

If you are looking to spice your ski outfit up a bit, add a silk scarf. If can work double shifts as guardian of the neck-area when the winter winds blow hard and saviour of even the worst cases of helmet hair situations.
