Sometimes, I get stuck for a post. I’m umming and ahhing over a few different ideas, I might have some things sketched out but nothing concrete, but I’ve still got the itch to get something out there.
It’s quite fun to turn to a challenge when this happens, but often they can be quite time-consuming (#30daybloggingchallenge anyone?!) so I thought I would come up with a nice easy flexible one!
Presenting (drumroll please) the “Five of my Favourite Things” challenge. The idea is simple really:
- Choose 5 of your favourite things – either from a room, or your house. You could choose books, or films even – anything! Then take a picture of each thing, and talk about why you love it.
- Nominate some of your favourite bloggers
- Add the badge so they know where to come and get it too and don’t forget to tag me @themumzilla so I can share your posts (and have a nosy, I love seeing pretty things!)
Bridie from Bridie By The Sea – I’m expecting some nautical niceness Brid!
Sam from Mouse, Moo & Me Too who promises me she has some new goodies to write about.
Katie from Mummy In A Tutu – thanks Katie for volunteering 🙂

I’ve chosen the kitchen as the place to start my new challenge (I may do other rooms later!)
This is my stacking utensils set from Joseph Joseph. I bloody love their stuff (I have to save up if I want something mind, it is quite pricey) They have a really good range in John Lewis and I’ve got my eye on their chopping boards next! I love this because it’s colourful, clever and useful. I use them every day and they make me smile. Perky utensils!
This is my fold up cooking book rest (currently displaying a delicious slimming world recipe!) I love it. Possibly also from Joseph Joseph, I can’t remember. But it folds up like a book when you aren’t using it, so you can store it with your books rather than having it out on the side looking unloved. Again, something clever and useful *swoon*.
This is my total favourite thing in my kitchen. I am such a loser! It’s a little spoon rest/tea-bag dump, and I got one for Christmas last year. I was really gutted when it broke (someone put it in the dishwasher!!!) so I got another one this year! An enormous 75p from Tesco’s. Makes me smile every time – it’s just so cute!
Another thing that I think is super cute. The butter dish! I love the font, and it’s satisfyingly chunky. Butter will keep for ages and ages in this, and it tastes so much nicer than fridge spreads. Total butter converts in this house!
I couldn’t not have something personal in my favourite things so here’s our matchstick hedgehog! His name is Martin Matchstick and I love him too. Just in case you were thinking I was a snooty kitchen snob – I also love my junky, messy knick knacks!
