4.) Merlot - I'm usually not a fan of red wine for so many reasons - ruined dresses (and carpets - which for some reason, core contents insurance doesn't cover), hangovers which feel like your head is being gnawed by a pitbull and near-immediate wine stained teeth. As a result, I avoid red wine most of the time, especially so on a night out but for some reason, I'm really into Merlot now...especially with a lovely meal. If you're not a convert, try it on a quiet night in. (You're welcome!)
8.) Gossip Magazines - Ask me in public and I will deny every laying eyes (let alone hands) on them however I do love them my gossip magazines. Not enough to buy them mind, but enough to pester people who have bought them to pass them on to me when they're done. I have to admit though, some of the stories in them are more comic than gossip. Like the one about Kim Khardasian (did I spell that right?) being pregnant. The magazine in question went ahead to say that Kim had been gushing about expecting a baby and put specific details about what she'd said as part of the magazine cover. Two hours after I saw this cover, Kim Khardasian herself denied being pregnant! Like where in the world do they get this information from???!!! (Okay, I'm in a bit of a quandry with this 'favourite thing').
10.) Black cabs - because this always symbols the start or the end of a fabulously raucous night out in London!
