It Turns Out Having Kids Doesn’t Need To Take Away Your Sense Of Style!

A photograph of a stylish mother holding her baby in her arms - It Turns Out Having Kids Doesn't Need To Take Away Your Sense of Style! - Mrs H's favourite things

This is a collaborative post.  No matter what kind of parent you are, there’s no denying that it’s always going to involve at least some degree of sacrifice. After all, it’s such a huge change in your life that assuming that you won’t have to give up anything is pretty darn naive. Of course, what you choose to give up and what you choose to hold onto is entirely up to you. However, a lot of mums seem to assume…

Finding My Mummy Style with J D Williams’ Autumn/ Winter Collection

A photograph of a young brunette woman standing outside and wearing a blue ruffle sleeve jumper from JD Williams and grey skinny jeans and a pair of grey ankle boots - this is a photo of her modelling her new Mummy Style - Finding My Mummy Style With JD Williams and their Autumn/ Winter Collection - Mrs H's favourite things

Before I was a Mummy, I wore a wide variety of clothes. I loved to wear a smart dress with opaque tights and heels to work. But now I’m a mum those clothes aren’t practical and lurk in my wardrobe unloved and unworn. My mummy style isn’t one that I’m particularly happy with. It consists mainly of jeans and t-shirts. It isn’t very stylish and it can look frumpy. When JD Williams contacted me and asked me to review some…

Little Miss H’s first pair of school shoes from Jake shoes

A photograph of a little girl's first ever pair of school shoes which are from the website Jake Shoes and a pair of black patent Lelli Kelly School Shoes - The First pair of school shoes with Jake Shoes - Mrs H's favourite things

Little Miss H starts Primary School next week. Sob sob sob. It’s going to be a day full of emotion. So I’ve been trying to get as prepared as possible. This includes buying all her school uniform. And of course, the first pair of school shoes is a crucial part of this uniform. Little feet go through so much. Especially when at school. They run, jump, skip, dance, climb trees and burn off huge amounts of energy. EVERY DAY! Therefore,…

A photograph of a beautiful nine month old baby boy modelling some Beautiful Summer Clothes from JoJo Maman Bébé and particularly the Dinosaur Print Baby Dungarees and the White Poloshirt Baby Bodysuit - Beautiful Summer Clothes from JoJo Maman Bébé - Mrs H's favourite things

The recent glimmers of sunshine have turned my thoughts to summer. I can already imagine Little Miss running around the garden in pretty summer dresses. Or Little Mister H taking his first tentative steps while wearing a cute pair of dungarees (I do love my boy in dungarees). And JoJo Maman Bébé is always my first port of call when I am looking to buy beautiful summer clothes for my children. We were very lucky that JoJo Maman Bébé recently sent Little…

A Letter To My Children

A photograph of two children, a little girl and her baby brother, sitting inside a tee pee and smiling adoringly at one another - To my children on mothers day - Mrs H's favourite things

Dear Little Miss and Little Mister H One of my greatest fears is that you will never know how much I love you. That you won’t understand that I feel truly blessed to have you in my life. You and your Daddy are my world. My life. You are my favourite of all my favourite things. Sometimes I am sad, or tired, or grumpy. I might snap at you or raise my voice. I may be doing jobs when you wish I…

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 faded photograph of a three month old baby boy wearing a white and navy breton jumper and a pair of jeans_includes the title "The perfect capsule wardrobe for kids with Vertbaudet"_Mrs H's favourite things

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…

What I Wore For Afternoon Tea At The Savoy

A photograph of a pregnant lady standing in a garden wearing a floral maternity dress from Tiffany Rose _ includes the title "what I wore ... for afternoon tea at the Savoy ... when 32 weeks pregnant" _ Mrs H's favourite things

Back in May, my best friend took me to afternoon tea at the Savoy. We live at opposite ends of the country and don't get to see each other that often. She knew that she wouldn't be able to throw me a baby shower and so this was her treat to me. She has been hugely supportive through all the miscarriages and is a fantastic spare mummy to Little Miss H. I know how happy she is that this pregnancy has gone…
