This Week The Mice Have Mostly Been...

Let's start with a celebratory statement...


Hooray - how good does that feel? Friday is finally here! What a week it's been - all work and no play WHATSOEVER - sad Mice. But, good things come to those who work hard (our 3BM take on the saying) ... today Mini Mouse and I are off to Paris with our favourite school pals for lots of gorgeous food, booze, shopping and dancing! Stay tuned for all our Parisian tales...

Over in Hong Kong, HK Mouse is off for a little staycation at the Hotel Indigo and can't wait for a weekend of complete relaxation and a good explore around the Wanchai neighbourhood. Again, she'll be spilling all the details on the blog very soon...!

That aside it's been event central of late so our extra curricular activities have been all about trying to attend as many as possible as you'll see from the below. Without further ado... This week the Mice have mostly been...

Feeling fabulously festive with Diptyque. Every year the Parisian scent and candle maker brings out a limited edition Holiday Collection to die for and every year they smash all expectations by making the collection bigger and better than the one before. This year is no exception - fellow Mice let me introduce you to the dazzling and oh so colourful Holiday Collection 2014...


I was invited to check out the new collection in-store so off I trotted one chilly evening after work to do just that. I was ushered in from the cold and greeted with a chilled glass of Prosecco - so far so good! The Diptique PRs got to work like santa's little helpers and took me through the new range - I learnt all about the 2014 fragrances and the heavenly packaging. So we have Indian Incense, Orange Chai and my particular fav, Pine Bark. All available in large candle size for £45 and then super cute mini versions at £25. Next up the pine scented Christmas tree ovals - gorgeous idea - you get x3 little wax scented ovals per pack for £35, the idea being that you hang them on your tree as decorations. Indulgent yes but just think of how heavenly the room will smell as a result! 


I was then left to wander the store to explore the rest of the festive range whilst snacking on little bites of sugary heaven...


The treats didn't stop there, when it was time to enter what felt like The Frozen Planet outside, I was packed off with a little bag of Diptique goodies to send me on my way...!


Flexing our Mice muscles at a Sweaty Betty blogger event. We were invited down to take a first look at the SS14 Collection - we accepted the invitation in a flash when we realised we had ironically penciled a gym session in for the very same evening ... working out Vs shopping for outfits to work-out in - no contest! After all, it's very important to look good while you get sweaty! 

So what did Sweaty Betty have in store for us? First off, LOTS of colour! Neon pink, electric blue, fluro orange and piercing purple filled the press room and immediately lifted my mood after a manic day at work. 



I was greeted by the lovely Sally who gave me a brief intro to the event and the collection - for starters I learnt that the new range was inspired by the 'architecture of boats, admiralty charts and sails as well as the vintage era of the 1950s, when sailing become a glamourous pastime.' Stunning photography of the collection, moodboards and seaside black and white shots covered the walls...




I moved around the room taking rail after rail of beautiful fitness wear in - colour popping swimsuits, fashion-forward crop tops, cute and oh so soft off-the-shoulder jumpers and teeny tiny sporty shorts with edge - can I have it all please?! 

 

 

In conclusion, all that's left to say is have a super duper delightful weekend! See you the other side!
 
Lots of love
 
The Mice
