We’re Going To BlogOnX

Helen and I are both excited to be attending BlogonX in exactly 14 days time (by which time we’ll be home from Orlando, Florida and have spent five nights in Iceland… we have A LOT going on right now) It’s my third time at the BlogOn conference (I think… it could be fourth!) and Helen’s second. However, it’s the first time we’ll be attending together to represent our multigenerational lifestyle blog The Harrison Household. We, therefore, figured it was pretty fitting to complete the BlogOnX linky which you can learn more about right here… Share a recent photo of yourself Here’s a quick snap of us meeting the one and only Ariel at Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World last week 🙂 What’s… View Post

Summer Travel Essentials

Have you booked your family summer holiday yet? Over the Easter holidays, many of us turn our attention to the next major school holiday, where we plan to spend two weeks of sun-drenched (at least one hopes!) bliss away from the stress of it all. However, holidaying with the family isn’t always easy and just one wrong turn can lead to a nightmare of illnesses that can easily ruin that relaxing holiday you’ve dreamed about so much. For that reason, I’ve put together a list of our travel essentials… Hübner’s Silicea Gastro Intestinal Gel We love trying new foods while travelling abroad, however with that can often come some side-effects. Hübner’s Silicea Gastro Intestinal Gel is designed to help soothe the symptoms… View Post

March 2018 – What We Watched This Month

With the return on some of our most loved series and excitedly the return of some of our newer series for a second series, we had plenty to watch. While we had a couple of days of snow too to add to the mix we managed to spend some time with Frankie and Bella and catch up on our films. We discovered some new gems this month to add to our watched list hoping for a second series. The Adults The Walking Dead If you are also a fan of The Walking Dead you may have similar feelings to us… we are done with The walking dead, the last episode we watched we actually skipped most of it because we… View Post

Gin Gins Candy Helping To Prevent ‘Morning Sickness’ During Pregnancy

Morning Sickness has to be one of the worst things during pregnancy. It affects each one of us differently, and at this moment in time, it’s hitting my sister Amy who is five weeks pregnant HARD!  Morning Sickness seems to exasperate all the negative things about pregnancy, nausea, fatigue, as well as how easily you can become aggravated. So, when The Ginger People got in touch to congratulate Amy on her pregnancy I spoke to them about how Gin Gins candy might be able to help her. Gin Gins Candy is available in a tasty caramel sweet and contains a 30% ginger per sweet. Working within the digestive system, ginger can help to boost digestive fluids and neutralize acids.

Boppy Total Body Pillow By Chicco – Review

It’s been little more than two weeks since my sister Amy announced she’s pregnant with her second child, and already she’s complaining about her lack of sleep. In fact, in the most recent discussion, she burst out crying at the frustration of it all – pregnancy has well and truly hit! So, when Chicco got in touch to congratulate us they invited us to try the Boppy Total Body Pillow. The whole family cheered in delight at the thought that Amy might finally get a good nights sleep! The Boppy pillow comes in this large, see-through carry bag with a handle. The packaging on the outside of the pillow as you can see demonstrates the ways in which the pillow… View Post

Ready Player One Merchandise

2018 has already been a great year for movies with the release of Marvel’s Black Panther. However, we’re only a third of the way through which means there’s plenty more good stuff to hit our big screens. One movie that’s been in the works for years now that’s got everyone excited is Ready Player One. It’s a science fiction novel, written by an American Author, Ernest Cline and directed by none other than Steven Spielberg. In celebration of the launch of the film on the 28th March 2018, Paladone has released a range of Ready Player One merchandise which we’ve had the pleasure of receiving for this review.

In 1931 Thomas Smith Gave Us… Sudocrem

Not many brands have such a rich heritage in both the world and The Harrison Household specifically. However, Sudocrem certainly does! I mean seriously, in the 80’s and 90’s did you even have a first aid cupboard or draw without a tub of Sudocrem in it? Which is why when Sudocrem themselves (well the PR team behind the brand) got in touch and asked if we’d like to review both the Care & Protect and Skin Care Cream we rejoiced. Sudocrem Care & Protect Shortly after celebrating 80 years on the market, Sudocrem launched care & protect. This unique formula of Sudocrem has been designed specifically to help prevent nappy rash. The cream works in three ways; It starts by creating a… View Post

What Happened When My Nephew Realised I’m A Lesbian

If you don’t already know, I have a nephew. He is 5 going on 6, very intelligent young man and very funny. When Frankie was born, I was home every weekend from uni possible to see him, we would spend hours, days together. Growing up I knew everything about him, favourite food, what tv shows he liked, friends he had, future goals. I would snuggle him on the sofa with In The Night Garden to get him to sleep and he would (unfortunately) play with my hair. While we are away for chunks at a time travelling, we make up for it when we are home and spend as much time as possible with the kids. Frankie’s latest trend is… View Post

For Matilda’s second birthday in August, we’ve very kindly been invited by the team at In The Night Garden to experience In The Night Garden Live for the very first time.
