After titting around at bottomless brunch on Saturday and spending the entirety of yesterday prostrate on any available surface, this morning’s alarm came as a real shock back to reality. Call me a pop culture publication because I’m certainly dazed and confused. The power of bottomless brunch hey? It gets you even two days later (or maybe I should stop necking my glass as soon as I see a waiter doing the rounds with the prosecco 🥴). Coat gifted by @warehouseuk.
