Win tickets to In the Night Garden Live

A still from the children's TV programme In the Night Garden featuring IgglePiggle, Makka Pakka, Upsy Daisy and the Tombliboos - Win tickets to In the Night Garden Live - Mrs H's favourite things

Little Miss H is a fickle sort. Her appreciation of certain TV programmes can wane over time. But her love for In the Night Garden is constant. The adventures of IgglePiggle and his friends are guaranteed to put a smile on her face. She knows the words and dance moves to each character's song (although the Tombliboos are a particular favourite). And she expects Mr H and I to accompany her in the gazebo dance at the end of every episode. That…

Stories for Life – the perfect Christmas gift

A photograph of the front covers of three books from Penguin Random House Children's Books including Max and Bird by Ed Vere, The Dinosaur that Pooped Christmas and The Little Elephant who wants to fall asleep - Stories for Life - the perfect Christmas gift_Mrs H's favourite things

As a child I used to love receiving books as Christmas presents. And I often found a story wrapped up under the Christmas tree. A story book is the perfect Christmas present for children. Books aren't played with and then forgotten about. Your child will not grow out of a book. A book is for life, not just for Christmas. And so I was hugely excited when a package arrived through our door the other day. Penguin Random House Children's Books had sent…

Before becoming a mother, I was a charity fundraiser. I cared deeply and I wanted to make a difference in the world. But since becoming a mother, my desire to help other's has increased. And I'm especially drawn to organisations and social enterprises that help disadvantaged and vulnerable children. That is why I was thrilled when From Babies with Love asked me to review some products from their AW16 Capsule Collection of beautiful organic baby clothes.…

A photograph of a little girl standing in front of a Skomer Lodge at Bluestone National Park Resort, Pembrokeshire, Wales _ Mrs H's favourite things

Earlier this month we packed up our car and drove for 5 hours to Pembrokeshire. Bluestone National Park Resort in Wales had invited us for an early Christmas break and to visit their 2016 Christmas experience Kingdom of the Elves. This is my first post about our winter holiday at Bluestone. I thought that I would begin by sharing a review of the accommodation, the resort itself and our visit to the Kingdom of the Elves. In a few days time…

Our Advent 2016 Bucket List

A photograph of a branch of frost covered red berries _ Our Advent 2016 Bucket List_Mrs H's favourite things

For Little Miss H's second Christmas I compiled a list of activities for us to do during Advent. Last year I planned to do this again but unfortunately it did not happen. I was so anxious during my pregnancy that I wasn't able to concentrate on anything else. This year everything is different. Little Mister H is almost five months old. Little Miss H is now at pre-school. And I am in a much better place. So once again I plan to…

I love going into the shops at this time of year and seeing all the Christmas party clothes in stock. It makes me feel that the magic of Christmas is just round the corner. I recently spent a lovely time in my local JoJo Maman Bébé store lusting over all the gorgeous Christmas clothes for both Little Miss and Little Mister H. As a child my mum always bought me a special dress to wear on Christmas day. Knowing that…

A perfect capsule wardrobe for kids with Vertbaudet

I started shopping at Vertbaudet when I was pregnant with Little Mister H. Their maternity clothes are stylish and practical and I lived in them during my pregnancy. There was one dress that I wore every week as I loved it so much. I have to admit that I am wearing it today. Almost four months after giving birth. It is just too comfy. And it looks perfect cinched in with a belt. While browsing the website for maternity wear it seemed…

Shopkins: Chef Club – review

A photograph of the DVD cover of SHOPKINS: CHEF CLUB_ a brightly coloured animation many characters from the show_SHOPKINS: CHEF CLUB - a review - Mrs H's favourite things

Little Miss H loves Shopkins. She first became interested in them after watching a number of YouTube videos of the toys being opened and played with. It is amazing how much enjoyment a three-year old can get from watching someone open a toy! She then moved on to watching the Shopkins animated webisodes which can be found on the Shopkins YouTube channel. If we let her then she would be very happy to watch these webisodes for hours. So when Universal contacted me…
