Last-minute Christmas shopping with B&M Stores

I can’t believe that there are just a few more shopping days until Christmas Day. Christmas does have a habit of creeping up on you quickly. And if you’re like me, then over the next few days you’ll need to be doing some last-minute Christmas shopping. If that is the case then you really should head to your local B&M Store. I’m lucky enough to be a B&M Store Blogger Ambassador and so I’ve been trawling their website to find…

Have a Troll-tastic Christmas with Trolls Holiday

A photograph of a little girl standing in front of a Christmas tree. She is wearing a Trolls t-shirt from George in ASDA. She is also holding a copy of Trolls Holiday - Having a Troll-tastic Christmas with Trolls Holiday - Mrs H's favourite things

The first time Little Miss H saw the Trolls film, she didn’t seem that taken by it. Which was a shame because all of her friends seemed really into it. But after a second viewing at a friend’s house, she became completely infatuated. After that, we had 6 solid months of listening to the Trolls soundtrack non-stop and watching the Trolls movie at least 3 times a week. Princess Poppy was even the guest of honour at Little Miss H’s…

Our Christmas Eve Box – what’s inside?

A photograph of a young woman pulling a funny face and holding up a basket which is her packed Christmas Eve box - it is filled with wrapped presents, soft toys, books and chocolate - Our Christmas Eve box - what's inside? - Mrs H's favourite things

A month before Little Miss H’s first Christmas, I read an article about giving a Christmas Eve box to your child. I immediately fell in love with the idea. It seemed the perfect festive treat to present your children with a box of Christmassy goodies the night before Christmas. However, I often struggle with inspiration for what to include in our box. And I’m sure that I’m not the only person. So I thought that I would share the contents of…

Our Christmas Tree Day

Ahhhh Christmas. It’s such a magical time. It’s even more magical now we have children. You see Christmas through their eyes. The excitement of seeing a tiny Christmas elf door appear outside your bedroom or of getting to unwrap a book every day during Advent. We always put our Christmas tree up in the first weekend in December. We want Christmas to last as long as possible. But we don’t like to start it in November and our tree tends to…

Christmas is such a magical time for children, but until this year Little Miss H has always been too young to fully appreciate the magic. But she is now four and a half years old and can’t wait for Christmas. In fact, most days we hear “Mummy… Daddy… How many more sleeps until Christmas?” Over the years we’ve created a number of family Christmas traditions. Advent is filled with daily Christmassy activities and the kids also receive a book every…

The past six months have been the quickest six months of my life. After a pregnancy that dragged and often seemed as long as the gestation period of an elephant, the last few months have flown by. Our baby boy is no longer a new born. And in the past month he has become a real little boy.…

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…

Christmas outfits from JoJo Maman Bébé

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…
