Noreen Flana­gan “If you want to feel like you’re fly­ing first class when the re­al­ity is you’re booked for coach, roll the dice and choose a seat in the last row of the plane. In the past year alone, I’ve scored the en­tire row to my­self on six dif­fer­ent flights. There are no bub­bles, but as soon as I put on my Chanel sleep mask and lie down un­der my cash­merescarf-cum-throw, it’s al­most as good as be­ing at the front of the plane. Al­most.” Carli Whitwell “I’m Garfield lev­els of lazy in the morn­ing. So, in or­der to ac­tu­ally pull off an a.m. work­out, I lay my clothes be­side my bed the night be­fore. I’m up and out the door be­fore I even com­pre­hend that I’m no longer un­der the du­vet.” Vic­to­ria DiPlacido “My nails do not grow—they splin­ter and break. I can never seem to get into the rou­tine of putting nail strength­ener on be­fore bed—the tra­di­tional just-leave-the-bot­tle-on-yournight­stand-in-easy-reach hack does noth­ing for me. So I found an­other route: reg­u­lar gel man­i­cures. The gel acts as train­ing wheels for my nails, re­mind­ing them the way to grow is up, not across or down. After two re­cent backto-back gel man­i­cures (about two weeks apart), my nails are the long­est they’ve been in years.” Liz Gu­ber “I’ll of­ten just put mois­tur­izer on my brows be­cause gel is, ugh, too much work.” Sarah Laing “I’ve stopped feel­ing bound to fin­ish books I’m not en­joy­ing. If I don’t like it within the first chap­ter or so, I move on!” h
