The Hong Kong Club Bar and Lounge, New Delhi, India
GLAMOUR, darlings! Or if you prefer the drag pronunciation, gla-MOUR! However you say it, that’s what we’re feeling in need of this morning. Is it so wrong of us to admit that we’re beginning to get stressed out over all the shiny-faced, frizzy-haired celebs talking into their laptops? We miss red carpets, you guys.
BUT! If there’s one thing this whole mess of a period is all about, it’s muddling through, carrying on, and finding new pathways toward our goals. So if we can’t have red carpets right now, we can at least have gorgeous lounges in which to virtually congregate. Glamour will return soon, we know. In the mean time, please check out the specials on today’s Menu of Distractions.
