This Week The Mice Have Mostly Been...

Thank god this week is finally coming to a close because for us Mice that means just one thing...

I can barely contain my excitement... firstly I have never been before and secondly the thought of all being reunited and exploring the city together is too much!! Work has well and truly taken over for all three of us the last few weeks, so to have a break away with quality time to catch up is much needed. Bring on the shopping, cocktails and fun, even if we do freeze whilst doing it!

When we haven't been manically wrapping up at work, throwing outfits into suitcases and squeezing in last minute NYC research, this week the Mice have mostly been....

Hiding out at our favourite newly discovered Dalston drinking den, Ruby's! It's been on our hit list for months and for some reason it's taken us an age to make our way there... something we're definitely kicking ourselves about now! 

If you're after something laid back, cosy and a little bit different then this is your place. Look out for the retro cinema sign on Stoke Newington Road and some stairs beside it lit up in a vibrant red...

Once in you feel as though you're in someones living room, it's small, low lit, retro but effortlessly cool.

However fear not, it isn't one of those places trying too hard with no substance. Yes it's cool, quirky and fun but believe us, there are some serious cocktails going on! The list is relatively short (never exceeding 14 options) which is a good sign as no one can be a master of too many things! We've sampled several between us and weren't once disappointed... my favourite had to be the Rhubarb Sour - delicious!

Head down and check this gem out... a great date place, the perfect girly cocktail haunt and a firm fav in the 3BM little black book!!

Slathering on Baby Lips at every given opportunity! I read about Maybelline's cute lip balm winging it's way over to the UK a while back, as ever I'm easily drawn into the hype and immediately added it to my shopping list. 

A few weeks ago I was browsing in Boots and came across a rack of these beauties and that was it... to say I'm obsessed is an understatement! Baby Lips claims to keep lips moisturised for 8 hours, offers SPF 20 protection and to restore your lips back to baby-new within a week! ALL for just £2.99 - I was SOLD! I opted for the baby pink one which gives a fun rosy tint, however there are five other options to pick from and at the moment Boots have a 3 for 2 offer on them... get collecting!!!!

Now there's no excuse to not have the perfect pout everywhere you go...!!

All that's left to say is have a lovely, lovely weekend and we'll be back a week on Monday with no doubt many pictures and tales to tell, eeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!
