This Week The Mice Have Mostly Been...

We don't know about you but, we've got...

We know that there're a few more hours to go before we can pack up our satchels and head off for two full days of cocktails and lazy lie-ins, but we're here to help you while those last few deskbound hours away with a round-up of all that's new and notable in Miceland. So, without further waffle, this week the Mice have mostly been...

Getting hyper over Instagram's genius new time lapse video app, Hyperlapse. While previously creating a time lapse video required expensive kit and lots of time and patience, now we can all create high speed shorts armed just with our iPhones. If you haven't seen it yet, take a peek at the Instagram promo vid to see what all the fuss is about...

We've been madly filming anything and everything ever since we downloaded the app. We've still got some practice to get promo video pro, but here's a little Hong Kong Hyperlapse (with music courtesy of another great app, Lomotif) that we made earlier...

Taking our make-up bags to the next level with a hefty dose of Tom Ford amazingness. We'll happily admit that we're out and out beauty junkies each with bathroom cupboards overflowing with a myriad of eyeshadows, blushers, foundations and lipglosses. So quite how it's taken us this long to invest in a slice of Tom Ford Beauty is a little beyond us. But now that we have, my God are we hooked!

It may be at the higher end of pricey but the quality's incredible and the packaging is so luxe that we want to constantly whip out our TF booty for public touch-ups. 

So far we've snapped up the Eye Colour Quad in Cognac Sable - four gorgeous bronzy browns that go on in a perfect buttery smudge, last all day and amp blue eyes up like no other colours we've ever tried.

And we couldn't resist another lipstick to add to our ever growing collections - hello queen of the nudes - Lip Color in Vanilla Suede.

Something tells us these aren't going to be our last Tom Ford purchases... Poor old credit cards!

Waiting with baited breath to see what we'll be wearing next spring as New York Fashion Week kicks off. For the next month we'll be poring over Style on a daily basis, swooning over all the pre-show street style and pinning all our SS'15 inspiration. 

In celebration of the start of fashion month, we thought we'd share our current sartorial obsession - our top fashion illustration Instagram accounts. Get following these paintbrush wizards immediately and prepare to see your feed flooded with fashion illustration deliciousness. In no particular order...

Donald Drawbertson
Head of Creative Development at Bobbi Brown by day, illustrator extraordinaire by night, Donald Robertson who's adopted the very apt Insta-moniker, Drawbertson, is an absolute must follow.

When you're one half of a fashion blogging power couple, your Instagram feed is bound to be pretty fabulous. Add in a dash of Parisian chic and a wicked way with a fine-liner and you have Garance DorĂ©'s swoonworthy account. 

The perfectly imperfect pouty girls that Blairz (AKA Blair Breitenstein) sketches are exactly who we'd like to wake-up as this fashion week. In the meantime, we'll just have to make do with wearing one of her beyond awesome Lips & Lashes Tees.

And that's that for another week, so...

Lots of love


The Mice
