Five Happy happenings 23

It’s been a busy few weeks in the Mouse House as I got a new job in Edinburgh and had four weeks to find somewhere to live, hand over my old job, and prepare to move to a different city (and country). It’s now Sunday afternoon, Mr Mouse has just gone back to Durham for […]

Soapsmith Bloomsbury Bath Soak

It’s a tricky time of year: the seasons are finally changing – the blackbirds are singing again, I’ve seen my first blossoming tree, and there was actually sun for more than half an hour at a time yesterday – but it’s still cold enough to make a bath seem appealing. Soapsmith Bloomsbury Bath Soak is the ideal […]

As I mentioned then, Samaya is a relatively new, all-natural, brand based on Ayurvedic principles, using “finest authentic elements of Ayurveda, marrying […]

My January nails edit

January Nails edit

I’ve heard so many people complain about the fact that people are still wearing dark polishes and ‘surely it’s time for Spring colours now?’ Have you looked out of the window? It couldn’t look less Spring-like if it tried. It’s dreary, rainy, bloody cold, and frankly, I feel about as ready for pastel nails as […]
