This Week The Mice Have Mostly Been...

Oh there you are Friday!

I guess it's time for another round-up of all the goings on in Miceland...

Well, we come bearing good news! If over the last couple of weeks, you've been getting a bit bored of the blog being a bit like this...


You'll be delighted to hear...


Which is obviously all very sad for poor post-holiday Mini & Middle, but we're all deliriously happy aren't we? If only because it means an end to the constant stream of this sort of thing...




Not so smoasty now are you Middle and Mini?! Mwah ha ha ha! (I'm sorry girlies, that was REALLY mean!)

And when we haven't been posting incessant turquoise sea, white sand updates or churlishly pointing out that it's probably time to start unpacking, this week the Mice have mostly been...

Eyeing up the new season Oroton bag collection and getting seriously squealy on discovering that the clutch we've been lusting over since the Oscars is just a swipe of our credit cards away...

Remember how we swooned over Bond babe, Olga Kurylenko's Oscars look a couple of weeks ago? Well it turns out that her delicious gold mesh clutch is the Oroton Freize Clutch and is an altogether not too eye-poppingly-expensive US$185. We love!


So we thought we'd go and check it out in the flesh at the Hong Kong Ororton store in Causeway Bay...



And we're pleased to confirm it's just as blingtastic in real life - right at the top of our new season lust-haves! If you haven't heard of Oroton before, you're seriously missing out. Think Australian Michael Korrs meets Witchery - classic affordable accessories with a modern edge. 

The Hong Kong store carries a capsule collection of clothing, jewellery and sunglasses and a huge range of handbags of all shapes, sizes and hues. While we were there, it would have been rude not to have had a little browse around and check out all the other lovely bag candy in store.



Our toes were also thrilled to discover that Oroton has a line of very lovely shoes to have us hopping into spring with an almighty leap in our step. Our top picks are these bow-tastic courts for work...

Sepia Suede Bow Pumps
US$325


...and these Celine-esque animals for play.

US$185


If you aren't Hong Kong or Australia based fear not, you can shop the e-store and get your Oroton goodies shipped worldwide. What are you waiting for?!

Paying a long overdue visit to beauty Mecca, the Skin Gym's brand new home for a little TLC. The Skin Gym has been a permanent feature in my Little Black Beauty Book for a while now, and Justine Grier (AKA the Skin Whisperer), the lady at the helm of this luxe beauty boutique has helped me out of many a beauty crisis...

In great news, the Skin Gym has now moved to a bigger, brighter more central location which means a whole host of awesome new therapists have come on board and they've even managed to fit in a snazzy infrared sauna to use pre-treatment or for a general detoxifying, destressing session.


Work stress and the bipolar weather we've been having in HK recently has been playing havoc with my skin, so I've been popping to the Skin Gym for regular facials. This week I kicked off my treatment with twenty minutes in the sauna which I loved and had the added bonus of twenty work-stress free minutes (Blackberries and saunas do not mix) and only a stack of gossip magazines for company - bliss! My facial was so relaxing I woke myself up forty minutes in with a giant piglet snore and my skin is already noticeably fresher and clearer. Skin Gym to the rescue yet again!

If you haven't popped by yet, I can't think of a nicer way to while away a couple of hours this weekend...

And that wraps up another week blog buds. I'm off to "workout"...
