So here we are, the big day has come and gone and we’re living in a festive bubble of wrapping paper, (delicious) leftovers and your least favourite chocolates left in the bottom of the tin. It’s that strange and nebulous time between Christmas and New Year, when days of the week lose all meaning and getting dressed feels optional.
