We can't speak French...but we can still smell like Paris!

We have been looking for an amazing perfume to suit our Miss Mouse gals.....and of course we found the perfect little French number with a twist.....

Honore Des Pres is absolutely the most beautiful perfume you will ever smell, created by the gorgeous Olivia Giacobetti for women who really appreciate something unique and inspiring....just like Miss Mouse gals!

We are very proud to house such a fabulous brand at Miss Mouse, which is 100% natural, no chemistry...the first totally organic perfume in the world!!!

The eau de toilette natural spray includes Bonte's Bloom which contains lemon, citrus and geranium just like a Summer garden!....Honore's Trip which contains citrus extracts and is so light and fresh!....and last but certainly not least there is Chaman's Party which is an amazing smokey sandlewood blend...

The eau de parfum range is inspired by the wonderful Big Apple herself and is comprised of Love Coco (our personal fave!)...if you could sum up Summer in a scent it would be Love amazingly perfect mix of coconut and coriander...then there's Vamp NY, which is unbelievably sexy....tuberose, rum and bourbon vanilla!

YUM! xx

"Our perfumes are totally positive, because they include no petrochemical products or synthetic perfumes, are free of colouring agents and phthalates, are produced without animal testing or ingredients of animal origin, and contain no elements which aggravate the skin...of course!"

Dress me up, dress me down!

We really do love a top that can be dressed up or dressed down...don't you?

This new little number from Natasha Gan is the perfect go anywhere top....dressed up with black pants and a fab pair of heels at night....or throw on over your J Brand Houlahans or a beautiful pair of white linen pants...done and done!


Who said Carnations are old fashioned!

Mix them up with something a little more earthy, like this fantastic wiry grassy stuff (not quite the scientific name;) and pop them on an old wooden table and shazaam! You've got yourself a bit of a girly bohemian cowgirl mash up!

Or something;)

Lure...try the fish!

So we went to Lure on Thursday night for their very first evening service and it was exactly what I expected....a beautiful warm atmosphere created by a loving hard working family that just love great food.....and can I just say the food wasn't was FANTASTIC!.....oh yes....I used capitols for a reason!

We (I) forgot to take the camera, so we snapped a few shots on the trusty old Iphone...not bad!

After dinner you can grab a yummy Genovese coffee...good luck fitting it in after the fab desserts....Nanna Peg's Trifle anyone!

Dee's husband Chris hard at work....making my Trifle?;)

Such a warm and relaxing setting...Lure has heart and soul...

I'm pretty sure Dee was sneaking sips of wine while Chris wasn't watching;)

The staff are super friendly and always willing to pose for silly photos!

Dee's daughter Rem and I.....her glass had no wine in it....mine did!

Dee and Chris...always a bottle of red at the ready...


Great job guys!

We had such a great time sitting by the glowing candle light amongst the Liquid Amber trees...

The menu is perfectly edited with all of the meals at the same price point, making it perfect for splitting the bill with'll be looking at $24 for a main which is great!

We started off with the goats cheese tart which is made from the flakiest puff pastry and pop in your mouth sweet cherry tomatoes...YUM!

Then I decided on the Spring Snapper on a bed of Artichoke, kipfler potatoes and asparagus drizzled in lemon.....THE BEST DECISION I HAVE MADE IN MY ENTIRE LIFE!! Oh my God it was the best fish I have ever had...ever!

They do a great Steak Diane which has been handed down by Dee's dad and the Chicken Kiev smelt like heaven!

Would you like dessert madamn?......."Hell yes!"

Dan ordered the Trifle (which I helped to eat;)......and I ordered the Creme Brule....I am a sucker for it. It was divine!

Finished by a couple of glasses of Shiraz with great friends!

Lure will be open Thurday, Friday and Saturday nights for dinner and bookings are welcome. BYO.

Do yourself a favour and get the me!
