A Budget Wedding – Organization Is The Key   If you’ve just been proposed to and thinking of settling down, then congratulations! You must have then felt the novelty of the engagement, the happiness that left you giddy for a couple of days. Hmm … how to budget a wedding? You must have imagined how your wedding would be – a theme wedding, with the oohs and ahs of a gazillion guests all looking at the bride, the latter almost exuding an air of dignified royalty, with a train that seems to be longer than the Great Wall of China. You may have also thought about the transportation you’ll be taking on the way to the reception – which could range from a simple bike to a car to an elephant (if you’re thinking of an Asian themed wedding), and all complete with the “Just Married’ sign. And you may also be very excited about the reception – the cake that seemed to rival the Eiffel Tower in height, the food that ranges from simple flambé to exotic looking dishes, the traditional throwing of the bouquet of flowers, and the well-wishers (friends, family and co-workers) giving speeches and advice to…

Tips to Raising Happy Kids

Tips to Raising Happy Kids   By Winsome Coutts As a grandmother and self-help writer, I’m often asked by readers, “How do you raise happy kids?” This is a question near and dear to every loving parent’s heart. No matter what we teach them, if we haven’t taught them how to be happy, or can’t parent in a way that makes them feel happy, it’s rather all for naught, isn’t it? So it’s a very pertinent question. I’ve been blessed with having two happy children and two happy grandchildren. I applied certain principles in raising my kids, and see my son and daughter-in-law apply the same in raising their adorable daughters, Klara and Stina. In this article, I’ll share two tips I’ve learned along the way.   The first is the importance of modeling happiness. You can’t give something you don’t have. How can you teach kids happiness if you don’t have it yourself? Some parents think loving their family means living only for them, driving them everywhere, cleaning up after them, and putting their kids’ needs and desires way ahead of their own. Parenting shouldn’t turn us into a short-order restaurant or a cleaning or taxi service. It does…

Checklist for Wedding – Coming up with a Guest List
Blog / 08/16/2015

Checklist for Wedding – Coming up with a Guest List How to plan a wedding? No wedding planner, no mom to help (because she’s a little busy at work), no friend to give a hand either. And regarding the groom-to-be, rare is he that offers voluntary help (and if you have one that does, kudos my friend – you’re so lucky!) It’s all you – just you and your pack of unending lists. Speaking of lists, did you know that your guest list is the second most important (if not the most important) list you will ever need for your wedding? Why? Well, it will become the basis of almost every preparation that you will have to make for your big day – from booking the venues (church or ceremony venue, and the reception) to the catering, invitations and favors, all of which affects your wedding budget. Drawing up a guest list shouldn’t be too hard … that’s if it was just mainly you who will be doing it. But there are several factors to be considered, so really, you would need the help of your fiancée for this one since it’s his wedding too. Start with your most important…

Six Tips to Solve Male Fertility Problems
Blog / 10/29/2014

Six Tips to Solve Male Fertility Problems   If you think that infertility is a problem exclusive to women, you got another thing coming. It is true that female infertility issues make up 40% of the total infertility cases in couples, however that percentage is outweighed by the fact that male fertility issues are also at about 40%. The remaining 20% is attributed to unknown infertility or idiopathic infertility. Gentlemen, prepare yourselves! An astonishing new study revealed a correlation between physical exercise and male fertility. Experts found that men with moderate exercise routine (roughly translates to an hour of exercise, three times a week) had better sperm count and motility than those with intense exercise programs, such as triathletes or marathon runners. This means that even men without extreme exercise regimen may be doing physical activities that somewhat promote male infertility and hinder conception. So basically what this tells us is that excessive exercise programs without proper recuperation time may negatively affect sperm count, motility as well as morphology. We all know that it only takes a single sperm to penetrate and fertilize an egg, but keeping your sperm healthy and strong will significantly increase the chances of pregnancy. No…

Groom Wedding Speeches Book Review
Blog / 09/27/2014

Groom Wedding Speeches Book Review Speaking to a large group of people is always at least a trifle daunting, no matter what the occasion. When you think about the fact that wedding crowds are considered by professional speech-makers to be among the most diverse and difficult audiences around (all different ages, all different stages of inebriation, hardly anybody knows each other or really has much in common except an acquaintance with the happy couple, and – without exception – every single person present is highly significant to either the bride, the groom, or both), is it any wonder that the prospect of making a wedding speech is almost universally dreaded? Now consider all this from the point of view of the groom. Everything you’ve just read still applies; but in addition, now factor in the points that: – most grooms aren’t professional speech makers – most grooms are already considerably bogged down with other responsibilities (such as getting ready for the rest of his life with his bride-to-be!) – most grooms want to overcome their natural nervousness and inability to verbalize their heartfelt emotions, and deliver a speech that’s warm, witty, meaningful, reflects the significance of the occasion, and –…
