Away From The Beach: Amazing City Holidays For Families

A photograph of Brooklyn Bridge in New York at night - Away From The Beach: Amazing City Holidays For Families - Mrs H's favourite things

This is a collaborative post.  Sure, there’s nothing wrong with beach holidays, but they can begin to feel a bit samey after a while, right? That’s why it’s always a good idea to mix up the type of holiday we go on, including with our families. If you’ve been visiting the same old spot for years on end, it’s time to mix it up – and perhaps visit a city instead of a beach. There’s no shortage of excellent city…

Welcome back to Our Weekend Happy. The fabulous linky that I host with the gorgeous Lisa from Mummascribbles. How is your week going? Are you okay? I’m feeling very tired at the moment. Little Mister H has clearly decided that he no longer wants to be a good sleeper. And so it takes about 40 minutes to go down for a nap. I hope he returns to his usual form soon. Mummy is shattered. Anyway, on with the linky. Our Weekend Happy…

A photograph of a woman with brown hair, wearing a stripey t-shirt and bright red lipstick - Living With Depression: Having A Nervous Breakdown & Being Given A Diagnosis - Mrs H's favourite things

This week is Mental Health Awareness Week. It’s a week that is hugely important, as we still have such a long way to go before we’ve broken the stigma that surrounds mental ill health. Last year, I wrote a post for Mental Health Awareness Week claiming that I was going to start sharing my story of living with depression, beginning with my nervous breakdown and diagnosis. Yet, these posts never materialised. Writing your own tale of living with depression is…

Build A Family Bathroom Without Sacrificing Style

A photograph of a pristine and white bathroom - Build A Family Bathroom Without Sacrificing Style - Mrs H's favourite things

This is a collaborative post If you look at photographs of stunning, modern bathrooms, they all seem to have something in common, they’re definitely not a family bathroom. As beautiful as the room may be, it’s clear to any parent that any bathroom that looks like the one above has not been designed to be used by a family with young children. The room looks wonderful, but it’s just not practical. Some would argue that these high-end, luxury, styled bathrooms aren’t…

This is a collaborative post. When it comes to the annual summer vacation, it’s easy to choose the mundane and ordinary package holiday. All-inclusive options on the hotel complex, evening entertainment in the form of cheesy cabaret tribute acts and a kids club tend to be the go-to formula. However, you do have more options. Some families take the perfect family holiday to far-flung destinations like Costa Rica, Macau, Fiji and Uzbekistan. While you may wonder how they manage to…

This is a collaborative post If your child is lucky enough to have their own bathroom in your home, then you may be looking for ways to decorate it appropriately. One rule you should always follow when creating a bathroom for young children is to stay away from themes. If you embrace themes within the bathroom, you are only setting yourself up for constant decoration. As you will need to update the bathroom as your child gets older. Not only…
