This Week the Mice Have Mostly Been...

Wow! What a week!

We think the last seven days might just have been the most exciting since we started blogging in February (yup we've almost been going for six whole months now...!). We know we've been bloggingTweetingFacebooking and just generally crowing about it all week, but in case you've somehow missed it, we found out this week that we've been shortlisted for the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards. We're going to stop squawking about it now but not before we've done one last beg.... please, please, please vote for us! Thank you, thank you, thank you!


And when we haven't been dancing with glee and pinching ourselves to check that its not just a dream, we've had a pretty busy week this week. So in summary, this week the Mice have mostly been...

Smoasting from sunbeds in the Mediterranean sun. This is getting minimal bog space because if it's possible, there's been more smug photo-posting this week than there's been mention of the word 'Cosmopolitan'... Yes, the London Mice are currently tanned and tipsy in Portugal. Yes, they're having a great time. Yes we're all jealous. Job done.


Junking in the South China Sea. Well if you can't beat them, join them. While the London Mice are poolside in Portugal, the mercury has been soaring in Hong Kong and we've finally had some scorching, summery weather. When the heat's on, staying in the city means melting - much better to head out on a boat with all your friends, a cool box of rose and some very ill-advised homemade vodka jellies... Last week's junk was Arabian Nights themed, queue a boat-load of girls in veils and boys in dish dashes. I decided it was the perfect opportunity to debut my Never Fully Dressed jewelled headdress - not strictly Arabian but still! If you haven't discovered online boutique, Never Fully Dressed yet, I suggest you check it out immediately. Whether you're on the hunt for the perfect, simple sundress or an uber-bling sequin encrusted top, Never Fully Dressed is a treasure trove of chic finds. We also love the beautiful pink packaging that your purchases are delivered in - excuse enough to treat yourself to a little Friday Fashion Fix...   


Amping up our tans with orange. Nothing sets off sunkissed skin (or in my case, a small smattering of freckles) quite like a dash of orange. But if you're not quite brave enough to go all out, orange nails are the perfect answer. We're currently trying to get our mitts on a bottle of summer's must-have nail colour from Chanel - Holiday, a zingy, suits-everyone orange.


In the meantime, we've plumped for a couple of coats of Barry M in coral. At £2.99 a bottle, it's impressively chip-proof and adds a splash of colour for about
the same price as a carton of Tropicana...


Getting Fizzy with it - toasting the opening of the newest member of the DiVino group - Patio, with crate-loads of Fiol Prosecco. Following in the footsteps of its older brothers: DiVinio, Carpaccio, Spasso and Goccia, this brand new Italian is set just on the edge of Wanchai in the Causeway Centre. Last night at the launch party, we ate slice after slice of delicious pizza and far too many super yummy mini burgers before swiftly working off the excess calories with a hyper-competitive game of fussball. Best discovery of the night for me though was my new favourite drink, Fiol! The Mice are already Prosecco fiends but Fiol is going to take the obsession to a whole new level... I'm currently working out how I'm going to get several cases back to England this summer to help fuel the Mouse reunion fun...


Until next week, blog buds! Happy Weekend!
The Mice
