EauMG’s Holiday Survival Kit

Vikki Dougan

From now until the 1st of the year you will be running yourself ragged, eating too much and probably drinking more booze than usual. It’ll be a 6 weeks of food comas and stretchy pants. You may be traveling to boring locations to visit family who may or may not criticize your career choices and complain about how you never come and see them. Parties. Parties. Parties.
