Gone Fishing...

With our sissy reunion happening this week we've had way too much fun and in our over excitement we've failed to bank any posts for next week and so in short, we'll...

Sensational Summer Skin...

The summer has well and truly arrived this week here in London with temperatures hitting 35 degrees AKA hell on the Central line!

With the warm weather rolling in and itsie bitsie wardrobes springing to life, it's time to get our summer skin prepped and ready! Cue face masks, body oils and lashings of good quality moisturiser ladies. The goal is to emerge looking something a little like this...



So let's start with our 3BM top pick of day and night moisturisers. Drum role please...

Silkly smooth, deeply nourishing and peony perfumed we have L'Occitane Pivoine Sublime perfecting cream (50ml - £32). In my opinion, the ideal day cream as it doesn't leave your skin feeling greasy ... I have moderately oily skin and I find this strikes the perfect balance.   




Onto my top two night nourishing treatments. I always opt for an oil based moisturiser to work its magic whilst I sleep. After a full on day at work in central London my skin is crying out for as much moisture as possible. My skin literally drinks it up and I feel there's something quite spoiling about the drip drop pipette regime!! I've tried out a fair few different brands but my current winners are Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate (30ml - £36) & erborian's Dongbaek Camellia Essence (30ml - £65). 

Onto product proof points ... Kiehl's concentrate is presented in a gorgeously heavyweight cobalt blue glass bottle - top points for presentation! Made from pure essential oils and perfumed with lavender it helps send you off to sleep too. The only watch out is it does leave your skin quite oily so just make sure you tie your hair back before dozing off or you'll end up with greasy hair/roots!

erborian's is an absolute dream. Mostly made from camellia oil with a touch of flaxseed, grapeseed, coconut and argan for good measure! It smells divine and you literally wake up sleeping beauty style glowing & satin soft.



My partin
g star product is an all over body oil and NARS wins hand down in this category! The Mono├» body glow for the day and the tinted body glow for the evening (both 120ml - £45). Obsessed.com



Happy summer beauty bunnies!

Angelica Hicks

Because it's Monday and that means we all need a little cheering up (unless like me, you happen to be on holiiiiiday! But more on that another time...), here's a little bit of fabulous to brighten up your day.


I stumbled across Angelica Hicks' awesome Instagram feed last week courtesy of someone else who had posted her Hen Party illustration. I clicked through to her profile, got sucked down the Insta-rabbit warren, and spent the next hour scrolling through all her beautiful and incredibly witty creations.



Angelica's work is like 3BM fav, Simon Drew for Voguettes. A little bit of fashion and a sprinkle of celebrity seen through the eyes of a super sharp, pun-tastic master of bold illustration. The fact she turned out to be a creative genius is hardly surprising though given that her mother's Italian fashion and textiles designer, Allegra Hicks, and her father is author, architect and interior designer, Ashely Hicks... We're expecting equally huge things from Angelica in the very near future.

Here are just a couple of my favs for your Monday viewing pleasure...













Rather excitingly, Angelica's website says that there's an e-shop launching soon, and having Insta-stalked her, it seems that she's selling her prints via London pop-up, rail_store which looks as though it's only popping-up til 30th June. So, marks get set, race you to snap up a little piece of fashion fabulousness....

This Week The Mice Have Mostly Been...


Yes it is and we've got that Fri-yay feeling! Bring on the fun...

This week we've been on countdown mode BECAUSE Hong Kong mouse is coming home to us next week! Don't get too excited .. she's not coming back for good just a flying visit. We're looking forward to plenty of sissy time, catch ups over cocktails and lots and lots of fun! 

Butttttttttttt putting our forthcoming sister reunion to one side, This Week The Mice Have Mostly Been...

Majorly crushing over the hot and steamy TV series 'The Affair'. If you've been meaning to watch it and haven't I urge you to act now!! I had heard great things from a few friends and work colleagues but just needed a window of weekend sofa time to snuggle up, settle down and get stuck into the series. 





Word of warning up front, it's a little bit of a slow burner but once in you're well and truly in! For starters the lead actor Dominic West is outrageously handsome. The acting is superb with the series already bagging two Golden Globes and the plotline is seriously seductive and oh-so-addictive. I don't want to give too much away for those that haven't seen it but essentially the show follows a married father of four, Noah and a married waitress, Alison and their summer love affair together behind their partners and families backs. Each episode is split into two halves following the same scenerios but through Noah and Alison's different perspectives. 

Oh and did I mention Joshua Jackson, my childhood crush from Dawson's Creek is also in the stellar cast line-up - swoon! I'm already looking ahead to season two - which by the way is confirmed ... yay! I dare you not to fall for the show... hard!

When my bum hasn't firmly been planted on the sofa because i've been engrossed by The Affair, i've been getting my fit on! There's nothing quite like a gym gear spree to give me a new fitness lease of life. 

And in my personal opinion, no one does it better that the big boys over at Adidas! I'm already a proud wearer of a few colour popping Stella McCartney pieces from a while back but most recently I snapped up a piece from the Originals Rita Ora Collection - basically her bold dress sense injected into classic sporting styles. I opted for a pair of cool black & white smoke design leggings but couldn't control myself enough to just buy one thing and so I also ended up getting a marble-look Stella M sports top as well. Check me, checking myself in the mirror below...!




Run Print tank top - half price at the mo at £32.50

Playing the spine-tingling 'Are You' from Francesca Belmonte on repeat. I challenge you not to be hooked the first time you listen to this. Moody beats mashed up with hauntingly beautiful vocals - every time I listen to the track it sends me into a dream-like state or to another planet altogether! 

It would seem Britain really does have talent because the lovely Francesca is from the UK - hooray! 

Enjoy...



And that brings me onto my parting image for you! Life is like a bowl of strawberries, tasty and oh so sweet...




Have a super weekend all! 

Lots of love,

The Mice
