The Mice Resolve To...


We all made it through another year and pretty much all in one piece....! Now that the discarded Champagne bottles have been recycled, the stockings have been hidden away until next year and the drinking from 10am has subsided, it can only mean one thing...Hello 2014!

Once Christmas has passed it's always a big come down. We may all have a few beautiful newbies in our wardrobe, but the fact still remains that we have to go back to work with everyone a lot less jolly! Goodbye early finishes for boozy lunches and lazy breakfasts to all moan about the hangover, it's back to serious business and so far that's been paired with lots of miserable rainy mornings in London!

But, let's scrap the glum outlook, the new year upon us! The Mice have decided to be positive and make only good things happen in 2014! Holidays are being booked, serious Sales shopping is being done and our brand spanking new diaries are filling up with fun dates and adventures!

You may remember our New Years resolutions post last year, however, if not let's take a trip down memory lane and see how we did...


HK Mouse...

1. Wardrobe Rehab - check! 

2. Get Bikini Fit - check!

Middle Mouse...

1. Never be late again - she started off well but… let's face it, a leopard never changes its spots!

2. Bag a hot husband - no rock on that finger yet unfortunately! 

Mini Mouse...

1. Start a house hunt to find the perfect grown up abode - I can't even pretend on this one...I haven't even signed up to any estate agents!!

2. Own a pair of Christian Louboutins and a piece of Acne...fail again, instead I went on 5 holidays!

Evidently some were way more ambitious than others and I for one didn't score too highly in the achievement stakes! So without further ado here's to a brand new shiny set of 2014 Resolutions, this year I am going to think with care!!!

HK Mouse...


My first resolution is to be kinder to myself. In the words of the queen of the wrap dress and out and out fashion fabulous gal, Diane von Furstenberg...



I'm a huge fan of the ever-awesome Grace Atwood's blog, Stripes & Sequins, and a post that she penned at the end of last year struck a particular chord with me. I'm forever looking in the mirror and being mean about my thighs, or my hair or the ginormous bags under my eyes... This year, as tough as it might be, I'm going to try my absolute damnedest to be nicer to myself and to just try to be a bit more grateful for all the great things I have. Whether I've had the chance to wear my amazing new shoes or just had fun cocktails with one of my favourite girls, thankful's 2014's buzzword. 

Resolution number two is to write, write and write some more. I've been meaning for years to start on an exciting new writing project and I just feel it in my bones that this year is my year...



Middle Mouse...

For me this year is all about saying...



My 2014 moto is to say YES to more (within reason!) Spontaneity isn't something that comes naturally to me. I like a plan and it's not often I waver outside of the lines so this year I intend to go wiggly wobbly.

My second promise to 2014 is to...



With this in mind I want to get back into: 
  • Photography - taking my Canon DSLR with me everywhere and snapping everything and anything that catches my eye
  • Sleeping - making sure I take full advantage of my weekend lie ins. Does this make me more awesome I hear you ask - yes, yes it does because without sleep I'm a total whinge bag!
  • Dancing - I used to dance pretty much morning, noon & night when I was younger, so I intend to get my dancing shoes back on whether that be a weekly trip to Pineapple Dance Studios or dancing the night away boozy-style with my fabulous friends 
Mini Mouse...

OK realistic resolution number one... repaint the whole of London towers! Embarrassingly the flood damage a year and a half ago is still very much there and after living here for six years it's time to make some decor updates. Please note I'm not wishing for a brand new house this year but instead to spruce up what we currently have, if I can't tick this one off I don't deserve to live in a flat! 



Resolution number two... with three holidays pre-June already booked and another in the pipeline it really is time to get myself to the gym. I am officially stealing HK mouse's resolution to get myself bikini fit. I've already made gym trip number one for 2014, and as a result can now barely walk, however no pain no gain! So by March 2014 (holiday number 1) I want to be fit and more toned and by December 2014 my aim is to be a SUPER MINI mouse!! 



Job done... now here's to making them all come true along with lots of fun, cocktails and exciting adventures in between...
