I was lucky enough to be approached by the lovely Christie at parenting blog, Childhood101, to contribute to her fabulous 'Everyday Glamour' series. You can check out my post on simple fashion tips for glamming up your wardrobe here, but of course while you're there you might as well enjoy tips on makeup, health and fitness, and general yummy-mummy-ness!
I admit I hadn't read Childhood101 prior ot being asked to contribute, but after spedning an evening browsing through the archives I'm happy to report that this is a no-nonsense, practical, and delightful blog. Indeed, its not just a parenting blog - it's THE Parenting Blog of the Year (Nuffnag Asia-Pacific Blog Awards 2009). Yeah, go Christie! It's the type of advice you really need when it's 6pm and your toddler is hitting crazy time (or, as Jo from Monster Baby accurately puts it, Bitchin' Hour) - from craft ideas to cooking, early learning, developement and milestones, and advice on how to stay sane when you've found crayons mushed into the good carpet (my tip number one: give up on the idea of "good carpet"), it's dished out from the front line, as Christie is not only Mum to a gorgeous 2 year old, she's also a Child Care Centre Director. Well worth bookmarking!
