This is a collaborative post. This year we’ve been blessed with a gloriously hot summer, and you’re probably beginning to think about doing your garden up (if you haven’t started already) so that you and your family can enjoy this lovely weather in your own little space. Sometimes though, it can be difficult to come up with ideas on what to do in your garden especially if you don’t like DIY. However, having a beautiful garden doesn’t mean you have…

Our First Family Festival And Festival Essentials

A little girl walking up a big hill at Elderflower Fields Festival - Mrs H's favourite things

On Spring Bank Holiday weekend, Little Miss H and I headed to Pippingford Park in Uckfield to attend our first family festival. Our visit had been arranged by Auntie B who was also coming too. She’d suggested that we join up with some of her friends and attend Elderflower Fields Festival. Apparently, Elderflower Fields is the ideal festival for small children. And a brilliant starter festival. I have to admit that I was quite anxious before we went. I was worried…

Sharing My Laundry Gems With Persil Powergems

A photograph of a woman leaning against a laundry pile and looking fed up. In front of the laundry pile are three bottles of Persil ultimate Powergems. And using the power of Photoshop the woman is sitting in a field and her laundry pile is so tall it touches up to the ceiling - Sharing My Laundry Gems With Persil Ultimate Powergems - Mrs H's favourite things

This post was written in partnership with Persil Powergems. Laundry. It is, without doubt, my least favourite household chore. Gone are the days when Mr H and I could get all our clothes clean over the weekend. I now feel that our laundry pile reaches up to the sky and never gets any smaller. The stack of washing is never ending and I sometimes wonder if the bottom of the laundry basket truly exists. I can’t remember the last time…

This is a collaborative post.  My family and I moved to Bristol when I was four years old. But when we moved our house was still being built. So we lived in a hotel for a month – the Unicorn Hotel. It was very exciting. We finally moved to our new house on my fifth birthday. And I always believed that our new house was my birthday present. We only lived there for five years but I was devastated when…

This is a collaborative post. Sleep is a massive, vital part of our health. Many people consider the ability to exercise and diet, maybe even to meditate as one of the vital underpinnings of health. While these habits and disciplines are absolutely beneficial, they would be nothing without sleep. Sleep is the thing that helps us stay sane, helps us face another day, and can refresh our entire mindset. You are a better person when you gain restful sleep. You…

Summer Fashion Essentials From Fashion World

A photograph of a lady in her garden wearing a smock summer dress from Fashion World - Summer Fashion Essentials From Fashion World - Mrs H's favourite things

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. Sleeping is something that we absolutely need in order to be healthy, not only physically, but mentally too. Lack of sleep is one of the most common causes of problems through life.  Because lack of sleep causes stress, and that stress can ruin so many pleasant days until it builds up more and more, and you find yourself in a depressive state every day and aren’t sure what to do anymore. You don’t ever…
