Current favourites #1

Current-favourites

End of year favourites posts are the only ones I’ve ever done, but I thought it would be good to introduce some a little more regularly. It’s primarily to stop my Happy Happenings becoming all about products, rather than feelings and experiences; it’s fine for things to make one happy, obviously, but I’d like to […]

February fashion and beauty wish list

Feb fashion & beauty wish list

I don’t know about anyone else but January has felt like a seriously long month. What with the frankly appalling state of politics at the moment (on both sides of the Pond, let alone further afield), work-stress, not feeling brilliant, and possibly doing slightly too much online shopping to metaphorically drown my sorrows, December’s pay day […]

Review: Samaya Ayurvedic Pitta Anti-Ageing cream

Review: Samaya Ayurvedic Pitta Anti-Ageing Cream

I mentioned the Samaya Anti-Ageing Cream* in my post about my winter evening skincare and I thought I’d write a proper review, now that I’ve been using it for a good couple of months. As I mentioned then, Samaya is a relatively new, all-natural, brand based on Ayurvedic principles, using “finest authentic elements of Ayurveda, marrying […]

New year, new homeware

New year, new homeware

I feel as if people are split into two categories in January: those who are still in mourning for their Christmas tree and tinsel, and those who are eagerly embracing the joys of a new year. (I might actually fall into a third category, those who want to just go back to bed until it […]

My January nails edit

January Nails edit

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 […]

Best of Beauty – 2016 favourites

Best of Beauty - 2016 Favourites

I was in two minds about whether to do a favourites post for 2016, but I like reading them and, frankly, it’s useful for me to really think about what I’ve loved the most; it’s easy to get caught up in the desire to try everything new and it’s good to gather together the things […]

Merry Christmas from the Mouse House

Just a quick one to say I hope that everyone has a very happy Christmas, whatever you’re doing and wherever you’re doing it. Mr Mouse and I are at Chez Parents in France, hoping that Marple won’t have destroyed the house and savaged her cat-sitter by the time we get home… Here’s a pointer on exactly […]

Skincare for cold winter nights

Skincare for cold winter nights

My skin doesn’t know what is going on at the moment. One day it’s -2°C and bright sunshine, the next it’s 13° with torrential rain (#FFS); the shops don’t seem to notice that there’s no need to the heating to be on full blast all the time, but my office window doesn’t fully close so it’s […]
