Now that fashion's on its 'metal'...
Two reasons to keep the fleeting party season dream alive with glitter and related matters: first of all, metallics are to remain totally a thing for the (technically) upcoming season (spring, in other words, depending on whether you follow fashion in the traditional predictive sense or the real-time online sense) and secondly, as overrated as new year's eve is (in practice, at least) its one use is to serve as a retrospectively-inclined distraction from the egregiousness of Valentine's day. Still, enough about the involuntary pity I feel for those who are 'taken' and socially obliged to splash out in order to validate it! Also, while I appreciate that it's not very fashion to display cynicism towards the idea of romance or disapproval for paying £50 for a taxi because of the calendar date, Chic Cheat and I are all about enjoying the escapism of fashion without the cost; what we lack in money and expenditure we make up in creative problem-solving.

Can you iron things before the spectre of unprecedented boredom sneaks up on you, with the revelation that two minutes goes strangely slowly when you're trying to time it exactly, with no distractions and repeat the process ten or so times? Then this one should be a doddle for you.
About half an hour (mine took longer because I ran out of spray glue (which was caused by poor planning and multiple projects beforehand, rather than insufficient supplies, I can happily assure you).
