This Week The Mice Have Mostly Been...


Happy Friday you lovely lot! Only three more to go until we can all clock off and drown ourselves in red wine of the mulled variety...





This week has mostly been about getting in the Chrsitmassy spirit. Buying gifts galore following Black Friday madness and springing out of bed like a Jack in a box eager to see what Diptique gift awaits behind that day's advent calendar door. It's been a pretty good week come to think of it.

So without further ado... This Week The Mice Have Mostly Been...

Snapping up gifts left, right and centre and crying at the sight of our barely there overdraft limits - I know we've only just been paid but pay day feels seriously long overdue! We can't give away too much on here because our friends and family will see what we've bought them for Christmas but a few of our favourite finds this year have got to be...


L’Occitane Pierre Herme scents
If you haven’t heard of or smelt the new L’Occitane collaboration perfumes with Pierre Herme you’ll want to. On face value, yes it might seem like a strange partnership but it soooooo works! Pierre Herme is known for producing some of the best colour-popping macarons around and so the perfume packaging is spectacular. The first one is as light as a feather and a great day scent - Jasmin-Immertelle-Neroli - very girly boasting notes of citrus, pink pepper, jasmine, immortelle and orange blossom. The second one however without doubt stole the show for me - the Pamplemousse Rhubarbe - zingy and fresh rhubarb and grapefruit with musk and lavender. £46 for the pleasure…






Melvita Nectar de Rose range 
Us London mice popped along to the launch of this new collection about a month ago now and loved every single item from the shower gel, lip balm, body lotion to the fragrance. Rose scented beauty products can sometimes be over perfumed and smell a bit granny-ish but not this range - subtle and ultra-gentle. 




Dr Jackson Coconut Melt lip balm 

An oldie fav of ours but a firm Christmas stocking goodie. The balm melts at your touch and is seriously one of the most moreish beauty products I’ve ever used. A snip too at £10… 



Aesop Post Poo Drops 
Perfect for naughty brothers, boyfriends, husbands and dads! Enough said... £20 





Jo Malone Roasted Chestnut candle
I am a HUGE Jo M fan! Buy me anything from this brand and I’ll be a happy camper! This festive candle however is on a whole other level of amazingness – it’s a beast firstly with three wicks, it smells divine and oh-so-festive and it’s limited edition. It’s spenny at £120 but cost per burn makes it all OK…




L'Occitane oil cleanser 
So spoiling it's rude! Pump a small puddle of the shea oily goodness into your hands and gently massage into your face. The oil will transform before your eyes into a milky lotion removing the day's remains of make up and Tube dirt. Matching shea cleansing lotion and toner also come in the same range so if like me, you get obsessed with beauty products that smell good enough to eat you should buy the lot! £17 a pop… 



The Liberty colouring book 
Who doesn’t enjoy a good colouring in session??? It was a great love of mine as a child and that love is still very much alive today despite the fact that I’m now cracking on a bit! Charmingly, it’s packed full of gorgeous patterns from the Liberty archive. Cheap and cheerful at £9.98 – you can’t go far wrong… 




True Grace tin candles
Inject a little festive cheer into your home with these beautiful scented candles. Christmas in a tin if ever I smelt it – favourites have to be ‘Village Christmas’ – fresh pine, cedar and amber and the ‘Manor Christmas’ – cinnamon and oranges. Divine! £16 each…



Tom Ford lipstick 
I have ‘Nude Vanille’ and am obsessed with it. They're spenny at £38 for a large and £27 for a miniature but totally worth it as they glide on like a dream and have TF emblazed into the lipstick itself. The little things eh?!




Squealing with excitement on 1st December when we leapt out of bed to open our first Diptique advent calendar window! The morning excitement continued on Wednesday, Thursday and this morning when each day we're treated to another Diptique delight - so far we have three mini candles - Amber, Vanille & Feu Bois and a fig perfume. If that wasn't enough HK mouse also treated us both to a Lindt chocolate advent too so a sugary start to the day to boot!




5,995 miles away, HK mouse has been starting her days with a Charlotte Tilbury treat - this particular calendar boasts just 12 windows so she has had to pace herself and open one every other day to spread the joy across the month. So far she has the Goddess Skin Clay Mask & Charlotte's Magic Cream. What lucky Mice we are!









That’s it for another week Micettes! Have a super duper weekend…

Lots of love

The Mice
