Summer Fashion Essentials From Fashion World

This is a collaborative post. I used to love summer fashion. From floaty florals to pretty pastels, I just adored the styles and colours. However, that was before I became a mother, and my figure changed. Since then I’ve fully embraced winter and autumn fashion. Skinny jeans and baggy sweatshirts have become my friends. But then www.fashionworld.co.uk contacted me and asked if I would try some of the summer fashion essentials from their website. I decided that this was my…

This is a collaborative post. Back in May 2012, when I was pregnant with our first baby, Mr H and I went on a babymoon to Rhodes. It was our last chance to have a holiday before we became parents. So we saved up our money and went to an amazing hotel and had a room with a private swimming pool. It was heaven. And the perfect way to relax before the pressures of parenthood began. Is your first child…

TRIGGER WARNING: Baby loss. This post details the symptoms and diagnosis of a missed miscarriage.  I had my first miscarriage six years ago, back in June 2012.  After being diagnosed with a missed miscarriage when I was 11 weeks pregnant. It shocked us and left us heartbroken. But thankfully, less than a year later we were blessed when Little Miss H arrived on the scene. After six years, I’ve finally decided that I want to share the story of our first…

Bunchems Unicorn Theme Pack – A Review

A photograph of a little girl with the Bunchems princess that she has made from the Bunchems Unicorn Theme Pack - Bunchems Unicorn Theme Pack - A Review - Mrs H's favourite things

One of Little Miss H’s favourite activities is to do a craft project. She likes to keep busy and a decent craft project can keep her occupied for an hour or more. And so she often asks if she can do junk modelling or build something with glue. This request often leads to some eye-rolling from me, as I worry about the mess that she is going to make. Then I heard about Bunchems and we were offered the opportunity to review…

  Tonight we had chicken stir fry for dinner. Mr H had spent 20 minutes cooking a lovely meal that we could all enjoy as a family. And it was a yummy dinner. Mr H and I ate the whole thing. However, Little Mister H was not happy about his dinner. He clearly wanted fish fingers and chips or jacket potato with cheese and beans. So he became angry and ended up throwing some of his food at me. He’s a…

Hosting A Tubby-tastic Teletubbies Playdate #TubbyPlaydates

We were sent the Teletubbies Playdate pack and merchandise for the purpose of this post. We were also compensated for our time. However, as always all words, opinions and photographs are my own and are 100% honest. When Little Miss H was younger she had a group of friends that we’d met at a post-natal group. We used to see each other at least once a week. And the children all became firm friends. Hosting a playdate was the perfect…
