The Wedding Planner - Great "Save the Date" ideas
In today’s fast-pace busy world, it has become harder and harder to coordinate everyone’s dates and times. It has thus become more important than ever for a bride to send out a “Save the date” reminder. This allows guests to keep their wedding date open and still gives the bride enough time to have her wedding invites designed and sent out.
 
 
 
I spoke to Carla Thomson from Secret Diary Designs about some fresh ideas for a “Save the date” invite and she also shares some trends that may interest brides who are planning their wedding at the moment. Take a listen to her tips below. Here are some of the "Save the date" designs her team came up with for some of their recent clients. I know it will inspire you :)

Mommy Matters - Taming your teenager: Reward effort not excellence
Having a teen in the house can be tough and often as parents you forget to praise them when they deserve it. There is so much pressure to be the best that parents often forget that teens are still growing and that their best should be good enough.
 
 
 
In Mommy Matters we get a bit of help from Gavin Fish. He is a high school principle in the Western Cape and author of the book “Taming the teenager” – today he talks about a chapter in his book that deals with rewarding effort not only excellence.
 
 
It is important to recognise your child’s personal best efforts and praise him/her as often as you can. Never compare your children/teens to one another. Gavin explains why he feels so strongly about rewarding your teen’s achievements. Take a listen below.

The Wedding Planner - The power to plan your day now in the palm of your hand!
When it comes to planning your big day, there is so much to do and arrange that it can all be a bit much! Not every bride can afford a wedding planner, luckily you can now plan your big day from the palm of your hand. The team at hitched.co.za have a lot of experience and I spoke to editor Caroline Hendry about all the online tools available to brides and how a simple app can change the way you arrange your wedding day. From tracking your gift registry, to managing your expenses, you can even create a group where all your guests can stay updated with your wedding day. To find out how the app works listen to the podcast below.
 
 
 
I also wanted to find out from Caroline whether brides are still mostly in control of planning their weddings or are the grooms also helping? She says that South African men are a lot more involved with planning their weddings than most other nations and that their wedding app has been downloaded by many grooms in SA.
 
 
 
It is good to hear that brides and grooms are working together and that it no longer is only the bride’s day! Take a listen to the podcast below.

Mommy Matters - You can stimulate your child's development at home
Early childhood is a crucial time for children to learn because this is when they develop the foundation of their brain for learning during the rest of their lives. The things children learn during these years play a very important role in the proper development of children.
 
 
 
Children learn by exploring their environment and watching people in everyday life. During the early years of childhood, children best explore and learn through playing. With the focus of early childhood development I would like to introduce you to an interesting programme that can benefit your kid from birth to the age of 6 making use of the key driver “Learning through play” all this in the comfort of your own home.
 
My smart kid uses toys, tools and play-based activities to promote school readiness and the reaching of key developmental milestones in the field of early childhood development. I spoke to Adrian Kaplan, head of marketing at MY SMART KID – about why this programme is great for your child. Take a listen below. Visit them online at myslimkind.com or mysmartkid.com

#THROWBACKTHURSDAY - Sonia Clarke...who??
Taking you back to 1999 in #THROWBACKTHURSDAY. We danced the night away to this song from British DJ Sonia Clarke. Okay so that doesn’t sound familiar at all…. That is cause we know her as Sonique. Take a listen below and reminisce with me!
 
 
 
Sonia Clarke (born 21 June 1968), known more commonly by her stage name Sonique, is a British singer, musician and disc jockey. She gained fame in early 2000 with her two hits “Sky” & “It feels so good”. Although she has released 4 albums they have not had much mainstream success. She is a club DJ by trade and was a resident DJ in Ibiza, the party
capital of the world, for 3 years in the late 90’s. In 2009 she was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent intensive treatment and surgery. Since then she has been cleared but has taken things slower in her career.
 
 
The Wedding Planner - Tips for a trash the dress shoot
A "Trash the dress" shoot may sound a bit strange, but there is beauty in having the chance to wear your dress again. You can plan a fun photo shoot where you don't damage your dress but you and your husband are more relaxed in an environment chosen by you. In April when the Wedding Planner suggested such a shoot, Andelene Henry contacted me to say that she was having such a shoot early in May. She shares her photos with us. Also take a listen to her experience of the day below.
 
 
 
Andelene says it was a lovely day and that her husband initially felt sad about the fact that she walked into the river in her wedding dress. But the setting was worth it.
 
 
 
 
The Wedding Planner spoke to photographer Loren Battersby who shares a few tips with us. Take a listen to her suggestions below. A great tip is to use another photographer than your wedding photographer. This will allow for a fresh approach and some great ideas. You can contact Loren via email loren@bphoto.co.za

Mommy Matters - This mom wants to thank you for donating blood
We all pray that we never need blood and sadly only 1% of South Africans donate blood. World Blood Donor Day is celebrated on the 14th of June. This year's theme is "Safe blood is needed to save mothers". I had the wonderful opportunity to speak to a mom who is alive because of your blood donation.
 
 
Dr. Alicia Sherriff from Bloemfontein is a mom who shares her emotional journey with us. She also wants to thank those of you who are regular blood donors - it is in you to give, what if you needed blood in an emergency? Take a listen below. For more info on blood donations during World Blood Donor Day visit www.sanbs.org.za
 
One donation can save up to 3 moms and only takes 30 minutes of your time. You can donate blood if you live a sexually safe lifestyle, weigh more than 50kg and have had a hearty breakfast.
