    Think about your perfect day. You can dream a little. Are you relaxing on a beach? Whatever your perfect day is, do you place God at the center?   I have been bitter, frustrated, angry and dissatisfied at different times in my life. And you know what the common missing factor was? Yup, you guessed it. God was off to the side and a second thought. All of my grumbling and complaining was really against God and a lack of trust in His plan for my life. I was angry that I was home changing diapers and listening to screaming kids. It wasn’t fun. It was hard work. Once I CHOSE to die to…

      When it comes to health, I am very big on small changes. Big changes are hard to adopt long term and absorb into every day life. Little changes and baby steps, however, aren't so hard to stick too. One small step towards better health I've adopted over the last year has been switching to stevia. Stevia is calorie free and derived from the plant Stevia rebaudiana so it's not a chemical. I used to be a Splenda fan and a sugar free junkie in general but after doing the HCG diet (I know, I know it's controversial but it worked for me) and an elimination diet to pin-point some migraine…

    The Kardashians are an interesting family and sometimes it’s hard to know if an outlandish story is fact or fiction.  This week, rumor has it that Kim Kardashian has some fancy demands when it comes to bathing her baby girl, North West. According to a new report, Mrs. Kanye West will only allow her daughter to be bathed in bottled or filtered water that is heated up “manually.”  With the lifestyle Kim and Kanye live and with the army of nannies and nurses that are with North at all times, this honestly could be feasible but I have a sneaking suspicion it’s not…

  • Stay Calm During Delivery and...PUSH

    25 Feb 2015 | 11:43 am
    How do women stay calm during delivery and labor? The answer is natural opiates. Some who might point out that opioids are among the world's oldest painkillers are referring to the use of the opium poppy but the ones that I'm referring to are endorphins, also known as the feel-good hormones. Go here to see more cute tees to give as baby shower gifts to the mom-to-be that may be apprehensive about labor and delivery. Endorphins, which alleviate pain, help laboring women to cope with their contractions and regulate the strength of the labor process, slowing it down should it gets too intense.

Did anyone guess that? :) Of the fewer than 200 baby names that are dual-gender one-hit wonders, these are the only ones that made their single appearance on the girls’ list and on the boys’ list in the same year: Clinnie, given to 6 baby girls and 5 baby boys in 1920. Chaffee, given to 5 baby girls and 5…

    From an interview with Keira Knightley in Elle (UK): Keira also revealed that she was never intended to be called Keira. ‘I was meant to be named “Kiera”, after a Russian ice skater who was on the TV one day. My dad fancied her and nicked her name for me. But it was my mum who went to register my birth, and she accidentally spelled “ei” instead of “ie” because my mum’s crap at spelling. ‘Apparently, when she came back he said: “WHAT THE F*CK? You’ve spelt her name wrong!” What were they going to do, though? Once it’s on…

  • Baby Name Prediction – Keke

    25 Feb 2015 | 2:00 am
    Actress/singer Keke Palmer had a pretty good 2014. Her talk show Just Keke premiered on BET in June (she’s now the youngest talk show host in TV history) and she became Broadway’s first black Cinderella in September. She was born a Lauren, but has always gone by the nickname “Keke.” Here’s the story: “When I was little, my sister was about four years old, and she had an imaginary friend named Keke. And she wanted my name to be Keke. And first, my mom was like, ‘You know, I don’t think that’s a good idea because she may grow up and want a…

Parents, if you travel by air you know what a pain it is just getting there, boarding, and departing. Dealing with a cumbersome stroller and tending your child makes it even more difficult. This is where the new Mountain Buggy Nano steps in. The easy two-step fold on this lightweight stroller compacts it down to a size accepted by most airlines for carry on luggage.

    Today it’s a colourful start to the week with these beautiful wooden toys and decorations.  For me, the simplest toys are always the best.  They allow a child to use their imagination and what is better than that?  These toys which include stacking stars and wooden puppets are not only beautiful to look at but are just the kind of toys that encourage all kinds of pretend play.  And then there are the sweet decorations including that colourful elephant garland.  These wooden decorations and toys are the creation of New York based designer Laura Rodriguez who wanted to make designs…

    Yay!  The first round of our new Spring 2015 collection is in the shop!  It’s a small selection, hand-picked by me as always, and it’s fresh and fun.  For this round, I’ve mostly gone for whites and soft colours which are all perfect for Spring.  One of my favourite pieces is the simple but oh so quirky bear t-shirt.  And I have to mention this Fox print shirt pictured below – how cool is that? Amongst the new arrivals is a gorgeous peachy-pink tutu skirt.  Last season I had a lot of requests for our Mellow long pink tutu which sold out very quickly.  With…

    Ever since Anya started walking, we’ve had trouble buying shoes.  Her feet are very narrow which has meant regular high-street shoes have never worked for her.  Instead I have had to seek out European shoes which for some reason are narrower than British shoes (I wonder why).  We all know that getting a good fit with shoes is so important especially for growing feet; I’ve even been told that getting well fitted shoes for a child is as important as looking after their teeth.  Because of this I never compromised on what I bought her even though it often meant spending more than…

  • Heirloom Versus Hybrid Tomatoes

    28 Feb 2015 | 8:56 am
    There's nothing better than fresh, home grown tomatoes in the summer.  I grow both heirloom and hybrid varieties, but my preference is heirlooms shown above.  I prefer heirlooms because they have a larger selection, more flavorful and great for seed saving. I save the seed and use them to start new plants the next growing season.  Heirloom tomato seeds have been passed down from generation to generation and from gardener to gardener.  The plants produced are true to their parents, meaning what you produced last season will hold true for the current growing season.

    How to be Successful with Email Marketing 101 The previous three articles in the “Email Marketing 101″ series dealt with three core concepts: Why you should be email marketing; When to start email marketing; and How to start email marketing. But email marketing isn’t an end point, or a static goal. It’s an ongoing process. While automation can and does yield significant benefits, you still have to make certain commitments to be successful.

Sending blog updates by email is not only great, but also very much good enough – you’re saving your blog’s subscribers the time and effort to remember to go back to your site. Your content is already great, and now people have invited you to send it to them whenever you write. That’s what they want; so go ahead. Give it to them. Here’s how you get started: Choose a reputable, supported email service (because nobody wants to end up being labeled spammer, right? Right). Behave well, always (ALWAYS) use dual opt-in,…

Good news! It’s a one word answer: Now. No, I’m serious. Don’t delay because “I’m not big enough” or “I don’t have enough traffic.” You simply don’t know when and which subscriber will be the one that buys from you, spreads the word about you, or invests in you.

    Why Email When you think about building your site for the first time, you’re probably also thinking about your Facebook presence. After all, that’s where the people are, right? OK, that makes sense at a superficial level. But there are two problems with emphasizing platforms like Facebook instead of your own site and your own list: Facebook owns Facebook. Building your online presence on someone else’s digital turf which they adjust to please themselves (and not you) is risky. Facebook stinks for engagement. “Stinks” – a bit strong, you say? Well, according to…

But it was a darned close call. As those last few plays unfolded, there was the amazingly lucky catch that put the Seahawks at 1st and 6. Then, out of nowhere, New England got “lucky” twice: Firstly, when Seattle tried an unnecessarily high risk play just to waste time, and secondly when the rookie intercepted the ball, effectively securing victory for New England.

    Are parents to blame for high needs behaviours? Do you ever wonder if you caused your baby’s fussiness or high need behaviours? If so, you’re not alone. When you see other people’s babies sitting contentedly in the stroller, or sleeping through the night, or just generally being a joy to have around, it’s hard not to feel like you’re doing something wrong. But I wanted to share an experience I had recently that got me thinking more about our high need kids, and how much responsibility we have for how they are.
