Hello lovely readers and welcome to our first This Week post of 2015. Can you believe we’re already three weeks into the new year? I don’t know about you, but I’m excited for what 2015 brings! Even though 2014 was the year I got married, there were a few more hiccups than I would have liked last year, so I’m hoping for an amazing year. Hopefully one that involves a European holiday!
In the early hours of Christmas Eve, my poor little car was written off in an accident for simply being parked on the street (obviously that’s not a best, it was a massive worst). The reason I am mentioning this in my best is that I am FINALLY at the end of all the back and forth calls to my insurance provider and multiple visits to the RTA to cancel the registration of my car, register my new car that I have been able to buy off a family member and all of the many distractions I have had since the accident. Seriously, getting your car written off involves a lot of admin. To extend on that best, I have a new car!
I’ve been back at work for three weeks now and I’m already starting to miss holidays. It’s been a very busy beginning to the year which seems to happen everywhere and I’m seriously hoping my workload lessens very soon. It’s left me feeling a bit exhausted so I’m hoping this Australia Day long weekend will be one of rest and binge-watching television shows! On a slightly related sidebar: I recently finished watching all of How I Met Your Mother again and for those who have seen it, I’m still emotional about the ending! It makes sense and I “get” it, but it still makes me sad. What about you?

For those who don’t know, I have the cutest rabbit in the history of the world: Albus Dumbledore aka Albie. He is a super affectionate rabbit and this is him giving me kisses. Coming home to his twitchy little nose at the end of a long day is just the best.
Around The Web
While this technically may fall into “last week” territory, I loved this Buzzfeed article that looked at what it would be like if Hermione was the main character of HP, it definitely gave me a bit of a laugh. I appreciated what Natalie Reilly on Daily Life said about Rosamund Pike’s outfit choice at the Golden Globes. While Rosamund made it onto my “didn’t love” list for the Golden Globes red carpet, this article raises a valid point about the overuse of the word “brave” when it comes to women’s fashion choices.
On KiKi & Tea:
This week, T spoke about why she doesn’t believe being grateful works, especially when it comes to comparing our situations to others, Cuppy gave some excellent tips about how to make your nail polish last (and having seen some of her nail polish collection, you want to take her advice) and Maree shared some of her favourite juicing combinations!
