Protect Your Phone With Our Amazing Value Screen Protectors!

You love your phone, you take it with you everywhere, but you hate the scratches on your screen from the keys in your pocket. You spend hours playing “Plants vs. Zombies” and “Angry Birds,” but you can’t stand the fingerprints it leaves. What’s a tech lover to do?

Wedding Wednesday: Kids at weddings + Giveaway!

At the end of this post I’m going to tell you how you can win FREE JEWELRY!  Scroll down to check it out :)


Having kids at weddings  can be a wonderful part of the celebrations.  But they can also lead to some hard decisions – can they come to the ceremony but not the reception, will only children of a certain age be allowed, will only children of close family members be allowed, will children not be invited to the wedding at all – the list goes on and on.

Here are some tips to keep in mind when planning your wedding:

  • If you will have kids at your reception, make sure to serve kid-friendly options (for those under age 12) and provide crayons, paper and other games to keep them occupied.  Depending on your budget and venue, having a separate kids’ room with a sitter is a great option.
  • If you have a flower girl and ring bearer in your ceremony, they should be invited to the reception.  Don’t put the parents in a position where they have to explain to their child that he or she is part of the wedding but can’t come to the party.
  • Whether or not you’re inviting kids to your wedding, check in with all the parents that you’re inviting.  Call them and let them know whether or not their kids are invited and if they are, what childcare (if any) will be available.
  • If you only want a few kids in the wedding, it is okay to just invite children over a certain age, or children in the immediate family.  Just be sure all parents are aware of this to avoid any awkwardness later on.

So here’s the good part!  Win FREE JEWELRY by sharing your experiences with kids at weddings.  Do you think it’s a good idea or a bad idea?  Will/did you have kids at your wedding?

Product Review: 4GB Sat Nav + e-Reader!

Do you remember the age old problem that used to plague each couple on a long journey? “Men refuse to ask for directions even when they’re lost.” and “Women can’t read maps .”

I’m not at liberty to say who is the winner of this particular argument, but what I DO know is that you no longer need to have it! Living in the age of the Satellite  Navigation systems has greatly improved inter-couple travelling relations, and more generally it has improved punctuality and the ability to make sense of one way systems!  The only real problem with Sat Nav is that it can be a little pricey if you want to stick to the famous brands – and that’s where we come in!


This great little Sat Nav kit has all you need to get yourself from A to B, with the addition of an e-Reader, MP3 support and a built in 4GB memory. It has all the practical functions you need too, like a great touchscreen, multi-language options and a speed camera detector!

All in all, if you want the ease and simplicity of having a Sat Nav, but don’t have the bucks to spend on anything fancy, then our Sat Nav is the choice for you.

Do you have any funny stories about getting lost on a journey in the time before Sat Nav? Let us know below!
