This Week The Mice Have Mostly Been...

This week us Mice have been adjusting and settling back into our normal daily routines after I shook things up last week by visiting Hong Kong for work and a little sister reunion! You'll be pleased to hear I had a cracking time and am going to share some of my adventures over the coming weeks starting with some of my shopping purchases below. Aside from missing HK Mouse and spending time catching up with Mini Mouse on all that I've missed out on in London, this week the Mice having mostly been...

Seeing sparkles thanks to Callixto, a jewellery brand boasting serious originality and flair. When visiting Hong Kong, Natalie and I stumbled across Icon, a cute little boutique store on Hollywood Road which was full to the brim of gorgeous clothes, bags and my favourite, jewellery. The Callixto jewels caught my eye straight away which is fitting considering the Greek meaning for Callixto is "most beautiful" and that they certainly are...

Set up by Sasha Dennig, each and every piece in the range is sourced from far-flung places, with a focus on craftsmanship and great design. The brand represents Sasha's passion for travel, jewellery and all of the treasures she finds during her adventures visiting new places. There's something so lovely in the thought that each design has it's own unique story, so lovely that I just had to snap one up for myself! I opted for the below classic blue topaz solitaire ring set within a silver gold plated band - a lasting memory of the Hong Kong fun I had with the best big sister any girl could ask for...
 
 
Smiles all round thanks to Dylan Kendall's happy feet homeware. The next stop on our Hong Kong shopping spree was The 9th Muse and this is where I spied the Efeet collection basically homeware with feet... The whimsical design of the pieces can't fail to bring a smile to your face, which is why I bought one immediately for Mini Mouse. I don't know anyone else as obsessed as she is with cups of tea and novelty products - all in all a perfect pressie for the baby of the family...
 

The EFeet range boasts much more than just mugs, it extends to salt & pepper shakers, bowls, milk jugs, soap dish and candle holders - all with cuter than cute feet!

Itching to get our Mouse paws on the third Bridget Jones book which has been announced this week. Entitled 'Mad About The Boy' the book is set to go on sale on 10th October 2013 - 131 days and counting! The novel promises to move with the 'social' times and will see Bridget obsessed with the likes of Twitter and Facebook and she even gives internet dating a whirl! As the book title suggests Bridge is still very much the thirtysomething single woman who we all fell in love with 14 years ago when Helen Fielding's first book, 'Bridget Jones' Diary' was published. The only difference is she's a modern socially savvy woman and isn't afraid to admit it! 
 
 
In celebration of this oh so exciting news we've collated our top 3 favourite Bridget Jones quotes of which are guaranteed to make you smile and have you as excited as we are for the pending third novel...

'The only two men I will ever need, go by the names of Ben and Jerry'

'Find sensible boyfriend to go out with and not continue to form romantic attachments to any of the following: alcoholics, workaholics, commitment phobics, peeping toms, megalomaniacs, emotional fuckwits or perverts'

'This is an occasion for genuinely tiny knickers'
 
Long live Bridget Jones!
 
As always, i'll leave you with a final Friday thought. The weekends to some are all about drinking, sleeping, socialising or maybe detoxing. For me they are all about...
 

Happy Friday all! May Saturday and Sunday be full of delicious weekend toast for everyone!
