Mr Snooze and Little Miss Lie-in

We love the Mr Men and Little Miss books... Favourites of children and grown ups alike, Roger Hargreaves’ simple yet insightful stories come alive in the colourful characterisations in those little white square books of his leaving the Mr Men and Little Miss books to capture the hearts and bedtimes of many thousands of readers...

May the fourth be with you

Whether you’re a Star Wars fan or not, you won’t have failed to miss that the date 4th of May has become synonymous with this epic franchise for reasons fairly obvious. Star Wars fans don’t tend to be lacking in enthusiasm or trivia when it comes to the beloved series and the most quoted character...

Short change

It’s bizarre how many people still short change their sleep. Sleep is nightly rejuvenation for our minds and bodies, it sustains our health, helps us regulate our emotions, consolidates learning and improves our general sense of wellbeing. All this benefit, and yet it costs nothing. If good food was free and balanced meals optimised to...

Pop of colour

We know that spring has arrived when we find ourselves looking for little pops of colour here and there in our homes. Fresh flowers lend a cheerfulness to our kitchen table and irresistibly fresh florals and bright colours eek their way into our lives in everything from what we wear to what we eat. The...

Wonderland

These days, the sky is the limit when it comes to making our kids dreams come true.

Our family company has grown up over the last 73 years and is still...

Little wonder 

Size doesn’t equate to beauty. Big can be alluring, small can be beautiful and, as with anything that involves beauty, it’s all in the eye of the beholder. If your bedroom is on the small side, find the hidden potential for your slumber space with our Five Ways to Beautify Your Small Bedroom: One: Keep...

Desperate measures 

Callous though it may be, few things are less appealing than the whiff of desperation. Think of the kid that pushes ahead at the children’s birthday party for the first slice of cake, the middle aged woman wearing clothes designed with teenagers in mind, the guy at the bar who doesn’t let the ladies even...

How often is ‘too often’?

We all have the odd night here or there where sleep can evade us but at what point does it become something bigger? How often is too often when it comes to poor sleep? At this point it’s worth debunking the biggest myth about insomnia. People tend to think of insomniacs as people who struggle...
