Caring For My Baby My Way With Baby Dove

A photograph of a bottle of Sensitive Head to Toe Body Wash and Real Moisture Bar from Baby Dove lying on a towel covered in a pattern of pink, green, blue and yellow ducks and a rubber duck - Caring For My Baby My Way With Baby Dove - Mrs H's favourite things

In sponsorship with Baby Dove Both my children have very sensitive and dry skin that has a tendency to look red and sore. Little Miss H often gets eczema under her armpits. So I believe it’s important that the baby care products I use on them are gentle and mild and offer complete care for their delicate skin. Until now I’ve struggled to find a baby care range that I’m completely happy with. But thankfully, Dove has recently launched a…

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…

“Saying Goodbye” by Zoë Clark-Coates – A Review and Interview with the Author

A flat lay photograph of the book Saying Goodbye by Zoë Clark-Coates on a piece of blue felt surrounded by white rose petals and blue pom pom flowers - Saying Goodbye by Zoë Clark-Coates - A Review and Interview with the Author - Mrs H's favourite things

There were moments when I was reading Zoë Clark-Coates’ first book, Saying Goodbye when I felt like Zoë had captured all my emotions about our four miscarriages. There are words and feelings that I still struggle to vocalise. Yet, Saying Goodbye has managed to capture all of these emotions and so much more. For sadly Zoë Clark-Coates understands baby loss. In Saying Goodbye she shares her personal story of baby loss. And how she and her husband Andy faced the loss of five babies. Shocked by the lack of…

Reviewing the brand new Hatchimals: Hatchimals Surprise!

On Friday 6th October 2017 I officially became the best Mum in the world. For Friday 6th October 2017, was Hatchimals Day and the UK launch of the brand new Hatchimals Surprise. The toy that is on track to be the on every child’s Christmas list this year. And we were fortunate enough to be sent one by Spin Master and take part in a mass hatching on Twitter. I have to admit that I’d never heard of Hatchimals until…

First steps with the Infantino 3-in-1 Walker

A photograph of a 14 month old baby boy kneeling on a living room carpet and playing with the Infantino 3-in-1 Walker - he is playing with the mini ball run and loving exploring the different elements of the walker - First Steps with the Infantino 3-in-1 Walker - Mrs H's favourite things

We’re very proud that Little Mister H is now officially walking! He started the week after he turned 13 months. Like his sister before him, he kept us waiting a while. There were several weeks where there was a lot of very tentative standing and wobbling… with the occasional lunge forward. But when our children get it, it seems like they really get it. Little Mister H is now storming around the house with ease, and causing all kinds of…

Jack N’ Jill’s New ‘Natural Bathtime’ Range – A Review and Giveaway

A photograph of four products from Jack N' Jill's new natural bathtime range - the photograph includes the Bath Bubbles, Shampoo & Body Wash and Moisturiser from the Simplicity range and the moisturiser from the Serenity range - Making a Splash with Jack N' Jill's New Natural Bathtime Range - A review & giveaway - Mrs H's favourite things

Bathtime is an essential part of our bedtime routine. And it is now one of my favourite parts of the day. I love seeing my two children in the bath together laughing and giggling. The bath products that we use are an essential part of this sacred time. But both the children have different requirements of what they want at bathtime. Little Miss H wants bubbles and lots of them. And Little Mister H needs a mild shampoo that won’t…

A photograph of a woman pushing her baby boy in a Diono Quantum Travel System in teal blue - she is pushing the Diono Quantum in a beautiful park (called Dunorlan Park in Tunbridge Wells) and is standing in front of the boating lake/ duck pond and there are pedalos in the background - #AdventureReady with Diono Quantum Travel System - A Review - Mrs H's favourite things

A while back the lovely people at Diono sent me their brand new travel system to review. Since attending the launch event and writing up my first impressions about the Diono Quantum travel system, I’ve been putting this fabulous new buggy through its paces. (With some help from Little Mister H of course!) I thought it was about time that I write-up some more considered thoughts about the Diono Quantum Travel System.

Celebrating our Rainbow Baby with Party Pieces

A photograph of a beautiful 7 month old baby boy at his Welcome to the World party celebrating the birth of our second rainbow baby - Celebrating Our Rainbow Baby with Party Pieces - Little Mister H's Welcome to the World Party - Mrs H's favourite things

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll know that Little Miss H and Little Mr H are rainbow babies. This means that both our children were born following baby loss. And they are the bright and beautiful rainbows in the sky after the heartbreaking storms of miscarriage. After three miscarriages we’d almost given up hope of having a second child. And so the pregnancy with Little Mister H was always going to be our last. No matter how it…
