This is a sponsored post. Italy has always fascinated me. I studied Classical Civilisation and Ancient History at university. And it was the Roman culture and history that intrigued me the most. Yet until Mr H and I went to Florence in 2006, my only time in Italy had been a brief journey through the Mont Blanc Tunnel when I was a child.  But from the moment that Mr H and I stepped foot in Florence, I fell in love with…

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.
