List love: why business class kicks arse

List love: why business class kicks arse

I’ve had the privilege of sitting up the front of the plane a few times in my life. I’ve never once paid for it (honestly, who is swimming in so much cash that they would fork out 4 times the cost of an economy airfare for a business class seat??) but I’ve been lucky enough … Continue reading

List love: things to be thankful for

I adore the idea of Thanksgiving. I’ve never been fortunate enough to celebrate one, but I think the concept poops all over Christmas. Your family comes together, and you celebrate all the things you should be thankful for. How is that not a million times better than a day that has turned into a display … Continue reading
