Culture. What an interesting thing . Wikipedia defines culture as: “an integrated pattern of human knowledge, belief, and behavior that depends upon the capacity for symbolic thought and social learning”.
In my mind, culture is an accepted behavior within a certain group. There’s Latin culture, there’s American culture, there’s Geek culture, (and yes, I meant to say geek not Greek) and then there’s MOM culture. Yeah, us moms have our own culture, what’s acceptable and what’s not. We have our own jargon, dictionary, knowledge. We have our own groups: play groups, Mommy and Me group, school friends group, music class group, dance group. Most of us feel like there is an inner strength pushing us along as we try to juggle all these different activities and kids and somehow make this all work.
On top of all these things, there are the special occasions. There’s Thanksgiving, Christmas and the most important of all, there are Birthdays! Yeah…. The only one your child will probably enjoy with all their friends and family. Your first baby Birthday party carries a huge responsibility on us poor moms. We need to have everything work perfectly: the perfect craft, cake and outfit. Everything is picked our just as carefully as it was on your wedding day. This is picture you will never forget, your child, in his/her perfect outfit going at that cake that you picked just for them. (and mind you the sugar rush that follows!)
At first, because you are a super mom, you think you can do this all by yourself. Well, think about it: You read, play and do a lot craft activities with your baby, you are way prepared for this. You sit on the computer to make the birthday invitation, obviously this is the first time you are doing this, it’s your baby’s first birthday and you have the picture that you want on the invitation all ready to go, only to find out that you cannot find the right colors or template. Frustration swells up as you try to find what you want and need only to realize a few hours later, that: You cannot do everything by yourself and you do need a little help on this one.
That’s ok.. you are a mom, you will soon learn how to delegate! It’s because we understand how very busy you are, is why we have prepared and made the perfect 1st birthday invitations for you. Yes we have, thought of every theme, style, colors and more. From sassy to girly, from classy to farm fun, you will find the perfect 1st birthday invitation at Bunny Prints.com . Yes, mom, and it’s ok to take all the compliments you will get on these.

In case you thought this would break the bank for you, now you know you can afford it and make this the cutest 1st baby Birthday invitation you have ever seen.

Capture this special moment, let the professionals take care of the job and deliver the unforgettable birthday invitation for your little prince/princess.

Family. The word that comes to mind this time of the year. I’m suddenly thinking about all those that I haven’t seen in such a long time. I start going back to the fun childhood times and all those that are a part of it.
Charity. That’s another word that comes to mind as we think of all those that are in need and don’t have family or friends to lend a helping shoulder.
Unity. Word that describes the feeling in the air. The scents that are so unique to this time of the year inspires unity and comfort. Those long lost relationships come to live as you try to reunite with as many people possible as your become contaminated with the unity that just flows in the air.
And… last but not least, parties! Oh, all those joyous parties that I’m invited to attend. Family parties, work parties, neighborhood parties! Well, to be honest, the parties started around Halloween time. It was crazy trying to reconcile work, with the kids schedule and all the parties that were going on. There are so many this time of the year and there is so much fun going on that sometimes, I even forget all those arrangements that I need to get done.
As a mother of girls, I realized that parties become more and more difficult to plan for. The main reason is, girls need to look like girls! Yes, the hair, shoes and outfit all need to look impeccable. There are just so many details that go into a girl’s outfit it’s not even a joke. Until this day, my husband still does not understand why I absolutely have to do their hair and their outfit has to be perfect. Well, these are my girls we are talking about and of course I want them to look as nice as possible before they go running around and ruining hours of preparation.
We all know there is always a comeback in the fashion world. We seem to rotate between 60’s, 70’s and 80’s quite often. Not only does this happen in my world, it also happens in my daughter’s world as well. Fashion and it’s influence is all over my daughter’s closet! And to not follow the trend is a shame, after all, how many years does my daughter get to wear a size 2T? It only happens once so, I try to make the best out of it.
That’s why this year I’m appealing to the vintage comeback of pettiskirts for my daughter’s Christmas outfit. With all the parties and events going on, I want her to shine in what is right now, pettiskirts is at the top in the girl’s fashion world.
I’m glad found Bunny Prints. They have the cutest Christmas Pettiskirts and personalized sets that are exactly what I was looking for. Why? Because not only will I have the Christmas pettiskirt I want, I get to personalize it with my daughter’s name or initial, ensuring my daughter will be the only one to have that outfit plus, at very affordable prices!
Give your daughter the outfit she deserves this Christmas. Go to Bunny Prints and purchase your Christmas Pettiskirts today. In the end when you see all those cute pictures, you will be glad you did it.
I’m into fashion, there’s no denying that. In every girls heart there is a place for fashion, and there is the dream. The big dream. At a very young age, girls all over the world dress-up in their princess dresses, their day consists in watching Cinderella and Snow White over and over, and in their little minds they want to look and feel as pretty as them. And I suppose that’s when “the dream” starts. The dream that you will meet your enchanted prince and marry some day. The dream that sometime in your life, you will fall for someone that is going to treat you that same way.
Then those little girls move on in life, become teenagers and adults. Princess dresses left in the closet, along with all the Barbie dolls they don’t care about anymore, the interest has shifted from Princess to Hollywood. That’s right. Hollywood now is the standard for fashion and although the dream is still there, it has shifted places from the Disney world to the Hollywood glamorous world. Not that it’s bad, but the dream has also changed. Instead of wanting to meet your enchanted prince in the middle of the woods and start singing love song melodies to each other, you are now looking at meeting him in that cool club you go to every weekend.
One day or another, you will meet your enchanted prince, and the desire to marry; which is embedded in every girl’s heart, is still there and will prompt you to move forward and do what has always been your dream. Now is the time to make the big decision: What to wear on your wedding day?
Let’s start out with the dress, you want that wedding dress you saw on the Runway Project show but, you just do not have the money to afford such a thing. Most people don’t and that’s ok. There are plenty of options and you do end up finding the perfect dress and the perfect fit and you are happy with that. And even if it’s not the dress of your dreams, it’s still close enough and close enough to what your budget can afford.
Let’s now move on to the Bride Jewelry. You SO want that necklace you have seen on Angelina Jolie’s neck. You want it so badly you would probably sell your car for it, if it would give you enough money to buy it you probably would have. Well, that’s where we come to a stop and talk some more about what you are wearing for accessories on your special day. Bride Jewelry is not something to be taken lightly, after all, you want people to comment on how beautiful you look and Bride Jewelry is a big part of it.
All of the elements of your bridal look are a huge part of making this one of a time outfit a success. And, guess what? You can purchase Hollywood style Bride Jewelry at affordable prices. Aren’t you so glad you get to keep your car? Yes, we know what you are thinking. You are not going to be wearing a million dollar diamond necklace. There is a time in life where Hollywood needs to stay in Hollywood and now is the time. However, you can wear beautiful Bride Jewelry like rhinestone chokers, pearl pendant necklaces, that stunning rhinestone bracelet you’ve always wanted.
