A photograph of the brand new BaByliss Bog Hair Care Airstyler sitting on a white dressing table by some mirrors and a vase of pink flowers - Love Your Hair With The Brand New BaByliss Big Hair Care - Mrs H's favourite things

This is a paid collaboration with BaByliss Big Hair Care and is part of their #loveyourhair campaign. My hair has always been one of my favourite parts of my body. I love the colour and I like the fact it is quite versatile. I can wear it short or long and it seems to suit my face in both styles. However, my hair is very flat and lank. It is poker straight and I’ve often compared my hairstyle to Morticia Adams’…

Little Miss H had been pushing to go to LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort ever since her twin besties had been earlier in the year. We were thrilled that we could…

A black and white photograph of a man taking a deep breath and looking up to the sky - Is Your Shortness Of Breath Due To Age Or Asthma? - Mrs H's favourite things

This is a collaborative post. Most of us consider asthma as something you either have or not. It’s one of those conditions we assume will be prevalent at birth. And, while we may worry about this for our kids, we don’t often consider that we could suffer ourselves. In fact, if we experience shortness of breath, we often consider it just another symptom of age. In reality, though, that isn’t always the case. It isn’t unusual for adults to develop…

He recently read out this sentence to me from a book by Jonathan Haidt called The Righteous Mind (the fun we have in our house!): “We are deeply intuitive creatures whose gut feelings drive our strategic reasoning.” It really connected with me because, as someone who has struggled with my mental health all my life, I know how true this is. On any day, my feelings…
