6 things that are better later

We’re up all night to get lucky.

SOME THINGS ARE better the longer you wait for them.

Like a fine wine with an old vintage or a perfectly-aged steak, these things are better the later they arrive. After all, the best things in life are always worth the wait.

1. That last episode

Got work in the morning? Just one more episode. Ah, go on. For some reason your favourite programme seems even better at 1am on a schoolnight.

2. The after after party

With nights out, it always ends up being the later the better.

3. Midnight snacks

There’s something to be said for the Continental custom of eating dinner later. Sure aren’t people always saying hunger is the best sauce?

4. Silver foxes

It’s not just cheddar that gets better with age. Plenty of Hollywood stars are actually maturing into silver fox territory.

5. Fashion inspiration

Did you know Vivienne Westwood didn’t have her first runway show until she was 41? And Vera Wang designed her first wedding dress for her own big day – aged 40. Creative juices obviously mature like good wine.

6. Shopping

Late-night shopping is the way forward. You can do it after work, beat the queues and stroll around at your leisure. And besides, when will you see all the twinkling Christmas lights if you don’t shop in the evening?
