This week we're obsessed with...
THIS HAIRCUT: Here's Jon Snow (his real name is Kit Harrington, yes, but he'll always be Jon Snow in our hearts) rocking decidedly less hair for WWI film Testament of Youth. We know it's shallow, but frankly we're just plain uncomfortable seeing the hottest of the Night's Watch looking like a blend between Roger Federer and Nathan Lane.

THIS BEARD: 'We're obsessed with this beard' in an it-will-appear-in-our-nightmares-sporadically-throughout-the-next-decade kind of way (joining that small child German bodybuilder with a bob and John Lithgow in Dexter). Warning: <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yo-x0IlgrE0" target="_blank">do not watch this video if you hope to eat noodles in the next few weeks.</a> PS: Incredibeard dude looks a little like Justin Theroux, non?
This week we're obsessed with...
THIS DESK: We understand that standing desks are better for our health ... but ... one problem, they involve us having to stand all day. Meanwhile this Japanese invention, the Lying Desk, really appeals to our laziness (which is a large proportion of our genetic makeup). <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OAK_zk50Rzw#t=42" target="_blank">Check it out here.</a> It's now available for pre-order online for approximately NZ$100.

THIS BLURRING CREAM: When we first heard about 'blurring' creams we were a bit, 'ermahgad, what will they think of to con us next?!' ... but then we tried this little beauty. This primer-meets-mattifier actually makes our pores appear smaller. We don't know how it does it, but it really fills in those nasty craters. It also stops our mid-afternoon oil slick and gives our skin a super smooth texture (we have stopped using it on the chalkier parts of our skin, however, as worry it will dry those out). Oh, and it also claims to reduce the appearance of pimples, which we think may be a stretch. But, otherwise, this is our new favourite primer (and we've tried far more expensive options) and it has us completely sold on the whole blurring thing. $45 for 25ml from The Body Shop.

THIS WEDDING ALBUM: Kim K shared this Polaroid showing her pre-wedding veil fitting by the Givenchy team last week. KimYe wedding: $2.8mill. Black-stockinged, topless snaps to one day share with the grandkids: priceless.
This week we're obsessed with...
THIS BOOK: Caitlin Moran, purveyor of inspiring words laced with witty quips and sex jokes, has written another book. If you haven't yet read her first tome 'How To Be A Woman' then we can't be friends, however you can still sit with us should you pick up a copy of her latest literary adventure, her first piece of fiction titled 'How To Build A Girl'. It's out now. We'll save you a seat at book club, you bring the wine. Two bottles please.

THIS MOMENT: This video starts out as a douchey, somewhat cruel prank video (it's titled 'Making Homeless Guys Arm Wrestle For Money!' - stay classy bruvs), but it is then completely elevated by this homeless man's moment of pure kindness: "feed the needy not the greedy brother". YouTube pranksters: nil. Homeless guy: 1 million good human points. <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E2RWG9BaflM#t=24" target="_blank">Check it out.</a>

A moment of pure kindness, a very Kardashian wedding album and the grossest beard action we've ever seen.
