Phew! I have been so excited for this week and so nervous about it for so long and it has come and gone! The Polka Dot 2014 Gift Guide is hitting your screens next week- we chose products we love, and made sure to include as many as possible to help you with your shopping. It’s also been somewhat of a big week in Australian sport, a tragic event that really caused a lot of thinking about how short life can be.

On that somber note, let’s catch up on the blog posts of the week.
