What a gloriously new year it is. Even more excitingly, it is, for most of us, the first end-of-a-working-week Friday of 2016 which means this is the first of many Fridays on which we will cast off our cares and dance merrily into the sun.
It’s the weekend, finger snappers, so here are a few things to help you get into it.
1.This spoof of Adele’s Hello, which perfectly captures the gym-despair being felt by many this January.
2. This excellent tune, called Saviour by my new favourite English It band, Secret Company. At only 2.5 minutes long, it is a bite-sized joy.
3. This photo set of the thinking woman’s Number 1 2016 Celebrity Crush, John Boyega, being adorably hilarious re Harrison Ford.
4. This excellent quote by Teddy Roosevelt which I think is a great mantra for 2016.
5. And finally this blog post from one of my writer-crushes Jean Hannah Edelstein on becoming the kind of woman who carries her dog in a bag on a subway in New York. JHE has gone a bit quiet recently, so I’m sharing her past excellencies whilst I wait anxiously for more. An excerpt here:
Now I have a dog in a bag, people on the subway look at me as if I am a woman with a dog in a bag. Which is a woman who I am, even though I am not really that kind of woman, not on a philosophical level. Or at least that is the kind of woman who I think that I am not.
This week’s featured image is of the bar at Sexy Fish, a riotously fun new restaurant in London. I’ve been twice already when in London and recommend it. Despite being a bit spendy, it’s good eats, great cocktails and spectacularly good time. If you’re in London, pop along this weekend alternatively bookmark it for your next trip, but wherever you are this weekend, ensure you
GO FORTH AND FROLIC.
