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.

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…

This is a collaborative post.   When it comes to renovating your home, it’s easy to think that the work begins and ends with the renovation itself. In some ways, this is true; the majority of the project will be spent on the literal heavy lifting and basic mechanics of renovating. However, this is not the only part of renovation that counts. While it’s great if you take appropriate safety measures and research the best ways to decorate, there’s no…

This is a collaborative post.   If you’re part of a busy family with kids, often your family bathroom has to function as a highly practical space. With a large splash zone, covered in bath toys and with a high volume of traffic, sometimes it can feel like a zoo.

  This is a collaborative post. Summer is typically a time when many of us do a little less in terms of chores and maintenance because, if we are lucky, the weather is better and we’d much rather be spending time outdoors with the family playing in the park or having fun at barbecues than working on our homes. There is nothing wrong with this, but there are some aspects of home care which are best done in the summer,…
