This Week The Mice Have Mostly...

Good Morning, good yawning!

Time to give your sleepy self a shake and...'s Friday and we have a feeling that this weekend is set to be a good one!

So let's kick it off with a canter through the weekly goings on in Mouseland. This week the Mice have mostly been...

Pimping up the most important meal of the day with some brand new breakfast experiments. We're sick of scrambled eggs, tired of toast and know that trying to scrape by on just a coffee means a morning full of tantrums and rumbling tummies. So, we decided it was time to get Googling and come up with some fun alternatives. 

We're trying to start autumn as we mean to go on with early morning work outs followed by healthy breakfasts to get us set up and raring to go for our busy days ahead. Because no one's got time for slaving over a hot stove for hours on end on a weekday morning, we're keeping things simple but tasty. If you're also after some clean, lean, carb-light meal inspo, highlights this week have been...

...coconut yoghurt with kiwi and raspberries...

... and baked eggs in avocado with herbs and chilli.

Scrumble-saurus Rex!

Curling up with some seriously awesome autumn reads. As summer fades to a shimmery memory, it's definitely time to embrace all the best things about the cooler weather and top of our list of wintery pastimes is snuggling up on the sofa with a big glass of red wine and a really great book. It may still be 30C and sunny in Hong Kong but that doesn't mean we can't whack up the aircon and pull on our onesies a little prematurely... Our October bookworm picks?  

A collection of letters written throughout the eighties from Nina, a fresh out of the box nanny in London back home to her sister in Leicester. Filled with the most wryly observed and wittily recounted tales of domestic life in a fascinatingly bonkers household, you'll miss Nina like a new friend when it finishes far too soon. 

The brand new offering from David Nicholls is every bit as spellbinding as his 2009 bestseller One Day. Us follows a family on the brink of collapse off on a make or break trip of a lifetime around Europe. Bittersweet but brilliant.

Stocking up on spooktacular essentials as Halloween lurks just around the corner primed ready to jump out on us with a boo! Whether you're getting decked out in your scariest costume for a serious evening of trick or treating, or just heading out to get frightfully intoxicated on a couple too many cocktails, we've rounded up our top Halloween buys (and there's some scarily great bargains in the mix to boot!)...

£347.50 (reduced from £695)


£398 (reduced from £995)


£234 (reduced from £586)


£30 (reduced from £50)

£247.50 (reduced from £495)

And that's that for another week! Time to zip off in a shower of glitter and Champagne corks to get the weekend started. But before you go, a little reminder...

Lots and lots of love!
The Mice
