December: Your year-end guide to all things merry & nice, with a dash of spice


News Flash: We’ve made it people, Christmas (and the New Year) is knocking on our doors and regardless of how the past 350 days have panned out, it’s time to put the good, bad and the ugly behind us and soldier on to bigger and better things that await. If you’re looking to slide down the last week of 2017 with a different spin that’s albeit, still a scenic route, we’ve got just the right quirky picks for you. Because, always leave the regular, for later.

By day, she’s splits her time between being a neurotic stalker who prowls through the deep, dark web, tapping into conversations of what people are saying (or not) while twiddling with creative campaigns & by night, you’d find her entrenched in the rabbit hole of geek reads ranging from the likes of politics, conspiracy theories to pop-culture.  Likes her coffee black and her conversations dark.
