This Week The Mice Have Mostly Been...

And breathe, it's Friiiiiiiday!

This week in Miceland HK Mouse finally returned to the 852 just in time for a quick round of catch ups with the London Mice before Mini Mouse packed her case to zip off to Portugal for the THIRD time this year... What a spoilt little holiday child she is! But who can blame her for grabbing the last few rays of summer when winter appears to have well and truly set in over in the UK?! 

But while it's Uggs and winter coats all round in London, in Hong Kong it's still pretty toasty. Just as well really given that this weekend is a long weekend for Hong Kongers and HK Mouse's three days off have 'beach' written all over them... 

And, when we haven't been making plans to escape to the seaside, this week the Mice have mostly been...

Coveting a skirt made from recycled plastic bottles. 

Nope, you didn't read that wrong, this week it was love at first sight when we spied a little tartan wrap skirt at the A Boy Named Sue pop-up AW'13 party. Hosted at HK's awesome new beauty bar, the Nail Library, we were greeted with Elderflower Belvedere cocktails, Happy Cow dairy free ice-cream and the most INSANELY delicious pumpkin whoopee pies we have ever tasted. 

Sipping and nibbling we battled through the crowds of beautiful people to ooh and ahh over stacks of gorgeous 9th Muse jewels and stunning Hayden Blest pressed flower art.

And then there were the clothes. We've been huge fans of eco-chic A Boy Named Sue since the very start, and we think that the new AW '13 stock may just be the best yet... The absolute highlight for us being the Svilu tartan skirt which we were stunned to discover is made from a mix of wool and recycled plastic. Eco credentials aside, it's just exactly the skirt we've been looking for to fill the tartan shaped hole in our winter wardrobes. Roll on pay day, this baby will be ours...

Here's a sneak peek of the object of our lust in the AW Lookbook along with oodles of other gorgeous pieces. Oh and ps. the site offers free global shipping - happy shopping!

Horsing Around
at the Hong Kong leg of Crazy Horse's Forever Crazy world tour. We love a bit of burlesque, so when we heard that the Parisian masters of the art were in town, we booked our tickets quicker than you can say 'nipple tassle'! We shimmied on down to the Lyric Theatre on Tuesday evening to watch the Louboutin'd troupe of scantily clad girls doing their thing. 

Sadly it wasn't quite all that we'd hoped. The production and choreography were pretty amazing and a couple of numbers (the mirror one in particular) were great but in the whole the dancers weren't fantastic and it was just a bit more sleaze than tease. Having said that the huge number of lone men in the audience did appear to be thoroughly enjoying the whole thing...

Getting Incredibly Organised for a change and snapping up next year's calendar even though it's still only September. But, who can blame us when the calendar in question is chef extraordinaire, Jason Black's, fab new project - The Icons HK Calendar. The perfect decoration for any desk, this also has to be the only calendar with the danger of making you pile on the pounds... With a different Hong Kong chef for every month of the year each contributing three mouthwatering recipes from haute cuisine to comfort food, this is a truly delicious slice of organisation and at HK$328 is pretty bargainous to boot! Snap yours up on the online store now and guarantee yourself a very well-fed 2014!

And that's it! 

Right, we're off to the beach...

Have a great one!
