This Week The Mice Have Mostly Been...

We come bearing good news...


Woo hoo! It's the weekend!

We're not sure whether it has anything to do with the trees doing their autumn stuff, but this week it's been turn over a new leaf week for us Mice. The London Mice have hit the gym hard, I've been back at Bikinifit for a brand new ten week programme. Christmas parties aren't that far off (how has that happened? Where has 2013 gone???) and we've decided it's time to eat better and work out harder. I may however have fallen off the wagon a little last night, ahem! But more on that later... When we haven't been discussing Kale and kettle bells, this week the Mice have mostly been...

Feeling toe-tied over these delicious Aminah Abdul Jillil Bow Pumps. We blogged a couple of weeks ago about being head over heels about ballerina style bow pumps, and we've now found our dream pair... 

We first spied first them on the uber-glam Helena of Brooklyn Blonde...





And then on stylista Aimee Song via her blog, Song of Style...



and then just as we were in danger of forgetting them, they popped up twice in one day on our Pinterest newsfeed... the universe is clearly trying to tell us something...

We clicked through to the Aminah Abdul Jillil online store and expected to find a price tag to make our eyes water... but were pleasantly surprised to discover that they're a pretty decent USD$195! Don't get us wrong, we'll still need to wait for pay day to snap up our pair of bow beauties but we think these babies deliver some serious bang for your buck...



Checking out fresh out of the box, brand new HK restaurant, the Bellbrook and toasting it with far too much Jalapeño Tequila...


Yeah, it turns out that's a lie. But it is exactly the sort of wisdom I like to believe on a Thursday night...

Anyway back to the restaurant... Brought to us by David Laris, the Bellbrook serves up dishes of Australian deliciousness which combine the three elements that David thinks makes his homeland so great... multiculturalism, vintage influences (think settlers) and the indigenous people. I have to admit that what with the tequila and the incredible piña coladas, I didn't actually sample too much of the food circulating (may account for today's wonderful hangover) but I'm very much looking forward to heading back to work my way through the menu.

Getting spooked out and preparing ourselves for a weekend of wickedness and witchcraft. We know there are still a few days until the spookiest night of the year, but it's the weekend before Halloween and that calls for costumes and plenty of ghoulish fun! I'll most likely be wearing something I pick up last minute from Hong Kong's fancydress Mecca, Pottinger Street, but my dream costume would include a large helping of this Charlotte Olympia amazingness...
