This Week The Mice Have Mostly Been...

Can we get a...



...there are just a handful of hours until the weekend kicks off and if that isn't a reason to be happy, then we don't know what is! Oh, how about pay day...?! Is there any pay day sweeter than the one that brings an end to cold, miserable, broke January?  

So, let's just say that this weekend looks set to be a good one. While we're waiting for it to get started, how about a canter through the week just gone by in Mouseland (with a little bit of pay day spending inspo thrown in for good measure)?! This week the Mice have mostly been...

Falling off the wagon in a spectacular manner at Laneway music festival in Singapore. It all started on Friday evening with a post-work pizza and glass of wine at the airport, which very quickly tumbled into a boozy plane ride... 




Groggy and beyond snoozy, we finally arrived at the Ritz-Carlton Millenia at around about 2am, at which point we collapsed into our beds and after spending a couple of minutes marvelling at how awesomely super squishy they were, fell into deep, snorey slumbers. 

Black-out curtains doing a stellar job, we eventually managed to shake ourselves out of those marshmallowy beds at midday, just in time to take a soak in the bath...


... and get ourselves to brunch at Wild Honey for a couple of rounds of hellishly great Bloody Marys... 


...and the sort of calorific deliciousness that will get you set you up for a night of far too much fun (this was panettone french toast with baby bananas, salted caramel mascarpone, toffee'd hazelnuts and salted caramel sauce - very much not on the New Year healthy eating plan, but so incredibly delicious that it was worth every last calorie...)


Post-brunch, we rolled ourselves around a couple of shops before hotting up the Gardens by the Bay for an afternoon of boozing in the sun with Angus & Julia Stone tripping along in the background (complete with a little one-handed trumpet solo from Julia...).


Then it was time to hot the Stoli tent hard, cue a slew of festi selfies...



A quick pit-stop for a flower crown later, and we were standing in the middle of a crowd of tipsy, happy people dancing to Banks.




My last memory of the night looks something like this...


So it wasn't a huge surprise when we woke up the next morning feeling a little worse for wear. Luckily, someone came up with the wholly excellent plan of hitting Tajong Beach Club for some serious sunbed action accessorised with a round or three of Bellinis. 



When hometime rolled around, we very reluctantly dragged our sorry selves back to the airport declaring it the very best weekend of the year so far and already hatching plans for Laneway 2016...

Frittering away January's pay check before it's even hit our accounts on a serious injection of winter sunshine courtesy of Tularosa. Laneway not only had us dreaming of sunny, summer, music-soaked days, but also got us pining for festival fashion of the boho floaty variety. So, when a Monday browse through our Instagram feed lead us to a brand new fash find, we were flexing our Credit Cards faster than you can say 'pay day'. Sold exclusively on Revolve Clothing, Tularosa is a label made for Gypset girls and is surprisingly easy on the wallet. Our wishlist is frankly out of control, but top of the current lust haves...

Tularosa Sante Fe Fringe Jacket
£117.15



Tularosa London Slip Dress
£72.40


Tularosa Dylan Knot Coat
£164.54


£63.84


£143.48


Love, Love, Loving the brand new track from the slightly unlikely trio of Paul McCartney, Rihanna & Kanye West. Pretty much the perfect tune to get you through a slow Friday afternoon...


And on that note, we think that's about it for another week! All that's left is for us to do is to wish you a very, very...


Have a super duper weekend!
