Hiring the Right Band for Your Wedding

Most couples like to personalise their wedding as much as possible. After all,it is their special day. So, it is only natural that they want it to be memorable and to be a reflection of their personalities. A good way to ensure that this is the case is to choose a theme and use that to inspire each aspect of the wedding. This makes it easier to ensure that everything hangs together and goes smoothly.

Paying attention to what may seem like small details is essential…Continue reading

Shopping for the hubby

Every now and then, I feel that the hard-working hubby of mine deserves a treat…a present. But for the man who has everything, I never really know what to get him. So we often turn to shopping for clothes and it got me to thinking, it’s coming up to Autumn now and perhaps he could do with a wardrobe refresh (I can say this as I know he’ll never read this post!).

So when the guys at Jacamo asked me to have a look at their new season collection, I thought I’d pull together a few of my favourite bits for fellas…as we can’t forget about them can we? Jacamo is a brand I’ve certainly heard of and have seen the adverts for, but not one I’ve personally shopped at before, so I was intrigued to see what they offered and the price-points…

Attachment Parenting – Worth Considering?

I’m on a roll with the parenting posts at the moment and finding it really nice, after two years, to reflect on our personal experience and “style” as parents. Luckily both hubby and I are on the same wavelength with our parenting style and outlook (well so far, so good anyways. So this week I thought I’d talk about something that some of you may have heard of, but some of you may not…attachment parenting.

Attachment Parenting – what is it?

I won’t go into it in great depth, but you can read a good synopsis here, but in a nutshell it’s a method of parenting that promotes a strong bond between parent and child, empathetic response and physical closeness and touch. All those lovely things.

As with everything on my parenting journey, I never set out thinking “ooh I’m going to practice a bit of attachment parenting today”…nope, I just sort of winged-it, worked out what felt right for us as a family and went with what came naturally. It’s only when I was recommended a book to read about attachment parenting, that I realised I related to the method and was indeed utilising it naturally. I mean anything that states “…mothers [are] advised to raise their infants according to their own common sense and with plenty of physical contact” is just fine by me!

For me and hubby actually, we’re both tactile, touchy-feely, cuddly, affectionate people. It made sense that we’d be like this with Flo and our responses to her needs, would be led from that. So when she cries, we cuddle and comfort her, when she’s upset, we kiss her and let her know we’re there, when she’s poorly, we snuggle up and co-sleep, spooning. I love it and she loves it.Continue reading
