Showing our laundry some love with Ecover and the #EcoverLaundry Challenge

A photograph of some clean laundry in a white laundry basket with a bottle of Ecover Non-Bio Concentrated Laundry Liquid on top - Showing Our Laundry Some Love with Ecover and the #EcoverLaundry Challenge - Mrs H's favourite things

My approach to doing the laundry is very similar to my approach to tidying the house. Ignore, ignore, ignore! It is only when the dirty clothes have almost taken over the house that I will remember that we own a washing machine. However, the real call to action will be when we don’t have any clean school uniforms, sleepsuits or underwear. And the only thing I have to wear is a work dress that hasn’t fit for five years. This inevitably…

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…

Diono Quantum travel system – A Review

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. The Diono Quantum travel system – a review A different…

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…

Sylvanian Families Ballet Theatre Playset and Sea Otter Family – A Review

I’ve always had a special place in my heart for Sylvanian Families. They were my favourite toy as a child. And I’d spend hours in my room playing with my bear family and their cosy cottage. I really hoped that Little Miss H would come to love Sylvanian Families as much as I did. She is such a creative child and I knew that these fabulous figures would be perfect for imaginative play. When Little Miss H turned four in…

Aquabeads Disney Princess Playset: A Review

A photograph of a little girl (she is four years old) dressed in a Disney Princess Belle costume and playing with her Aquabeads Disney Princess PlaySet - Aquabeads Disney Princess Playset Review - A brilliant quiet time activity for busy kids - Mrs H's favourite things

Little Miss H adores Disney Princesses. I’m not entirely sure when or how it happened. But it did. And she could quite happily spend everyday dressed up as Belle or Sleeping Beauty. So I wasn’t surprised when she couldn’t contain her excitement when she saw that we’d received an Aquabeads Disney Princess Playset set to review. “Mummy, please can I open my Disney Princess Aquabeads? Pllllleeeeaaasseee?” This was something I heard quite often once Little Miss H had spied the Aquabeads Disney…

A 14 month old boy sitting on the floor (the photograph only shows his legs and torso) and holding onto a wooden push-along rabbit toy from Bigjigs - Bigjigs Sweetland Express and Push-Along Rabbit - A Bigjigs Play Patrol Review - Mrs H's favourite things

Little Miss and Little Mister H are part of the Bigjigs Play Patrol and previously the lovely people at Bigjigs have sent us a Rainbow Rattle, Garden Bead Box and the ZooBooKoo Spelling Cube Book to play with and test out. But on this occasion, Little Miss H received the Sweetland Express train and Little Mister H was sent the Push Along Rabbit to review.
