If you're clicking here for the first time, WELCOME! Every Friday we celebrate the fact that - ding, ding! - it's Friday, and our favourite things (tickets to a phenomenal concert? Stained carpets?! Okay, it's probably not the latter...) from the week that was. Here's what I'm currently loving!
x Joining The Instagram Fun - I KNOW! Ten years - slight exaggeration - behind all the cool kids, huh?! Touted as a ''fun and quirky way to share your life with friends through a series of pictures'' (thanks, Instagram!), I'm addicted to this glorious application which transforms ''mediocre-looking mobile phone photos into professional-looking snapshots''. Are you on Instagram? (Psst! My username is 'Tom Cruise' if you'd like to join the visual mayhem. HA! Just kidding! It's 'frockandroll'.)
(Because clearly I ponder the big questions in life!) Contemplating which nail polish colour to use on Monday morning. Decisions, DECISIONS!
Who likes sparkles?! I like sparkles!
x Receiving My British Passport - YES! Yeeeeees! Guess who's now officially a British citizen?! (Oh... my... GOODNESS!)
x Other Little Things - Incredible news (one of my oldest, bestest friends, Chris, is now employed. Ah! If you've read this piece, you'll understanding how wonderful this is. So, so happy for him!); sifting through old photos and realising how painfully moronic I am (what is this?!); Strapping Young Lad; headbands, headbands, HEADBANDS; cackling at Karl Pilkington's impressions of China (''I didn't think China was gonna be like this. I thought it was gonna be more... like I said, I thought it was where they made the iPod. I think I've got the wrong place though, because this ain't a place where they need an iPod. GET TOILET ROLLS FIRST!''); typically-frank nuggets of wisdom from my father (''it's amazing what one sees when one's head isn't stuck up their own a'hole.'' Y-e-p. I warned you that it was frank!); unexpected and hilarious e-mails (thank-you, magnificent Sarah!); c-c-cute date ideas (''option 1: Let's cook something together. Option 2: We'll go to the movies. Option 3: Let's go SOMEWHERE!''); massages (!); ecstatic embraces; and finally, Florence & The Machine's hauntingly exquisite Seven Devils:
x Stumped for plans for a fabulous Friday night out? Why not... ''restaurant hop''?! Grab someone wonderful, take a stroll and pop in to three different restaurants and enjoy a meal at each one. (Could you have a Brazillian entrée? A Mexican main course? A Bolivian dessert?! Oh, the possibilities!)
Happy, happy Friday to you, and happy JUNE! (That's right... it's here already!) How was your week? What are your plans for the weekend?
Oh my gosh, there really is nothing like pink glittery shoes to brighten up a Friday morning, is there?
PorkChop'sNest - Awww, you're LOVELY! Thank-you so much, I'm similarly ecstatic to have stumbled across YOURS! :D
And I made them! (Psst! You can make a pair, too:
Natalie - Oh wow! That will be lovely, Natalie. And hey, you know what they say about change... it's almost as good as a holiday! :D How exciting.
Helen - Thanks Helen! Unfortunately I'll miss them this time around, but you never know... I could witness them NEXT year! :D
Bonnie - Magpie. For. LIFE!
Stacey - I love following your Instagram shenanigans, sweet Stacey! And thank-you very much :D
I am addicted to Instagram as well. Which you may have noticed, after my drunken live-Instagramming of my farewell party from Brisbane, haha.
I'm totally excited for you getting your passport & citizenship, and your friend Chris finding a job!
Look at those sparkles! And they are pink! LOVELOVELOVE.
Good old British passport- you can join in the jubilee celebrations!
Yep, my parents are wanting to downsize. We currently live in a big tri-level house & it's just too much. They are looking to move out to the base area of the Blue Mountains, around Winmalee area, it's so gorgeous!
And yep! I turn 26 on Thursday! Eep!
WANT.THOSE.PINK.SPARKLY.HEELS. WHERE WHERE??
Love your blog Corrine! :) added to my blogger reading list.
Julie - THANK-YOU, JULIE! :D I'm so excited!
Sending many, *many* ''good luck'' vibes your way regarding your interview, and wow, nice work on the cheesecake! (And client meetings!) I'm not a fan of it either, but maybe you could convert me! :D
Have a super-duper weekend!
Natalie - That I WILL! (Haha, I'm ALWAYS hungry!)
Natalie - YOU WILL! And your plans sound delightful. Have a terrific time with your brother, niece and nephew, and best of luck with the house hunting! (I had no idea that you were moving... or that you're *26* next week! Whaaat!)
Alex - Thanks heaps, Axe-y! :) Oh, and HEY! I need an update from you re: the almighty interview, missy!
J. - A dance recital? Awesome! I hope it went splendidly for you, and that work's a breeze! (Or at the very least, goes quickly for you!)
Sounds like a good week! I just have to make it through tonight's dance recital and then the stress is over! Of course, I do have the other job to work for the rest of the weekend...
I am on Instagram too! Username is xx_alexandra
I love your sparkly shoes! :)
Eee! British passport. I dream of visiting the UK one day. ONE DAY I WILL!
Hmm, plans... Saturday i'm visiting my brother, neice and nephew. Sunday i'm looking at a house with my parents (We're moving!). Thursday, i'm going out with my sister as ITS MY BIRTHDAY, i'm turning 26, guh.
Oh, and sparkles are amazing!
I definitely will restaurant hop :) lol

YAAY! Congrats on your passport and British citizenship :DDD. I'm so happy for you Corrine n_n.
Cool things this week: getting out of my funk, having two successful client meetings, having one of my best friends try my homemade cheesecake (we have an issue with cheesecake) and him loving it, watching an electric storm cloud from really afar, Chocolate with Chile from Cielito Querido and looking forward to my job interview tomorrow!
Have a nice weekend Corrine!
