Luxury Leather Baby Changing Bags; great gifts for mums-to be!

According to the government’s births statistics, most babies are born in September and November. 

If you’re looking for a special gift around this time, you can’t go far wrong with a luxury leather baby changing bag. Catwalk Collection makes a classic baby changing bag in jet black which is currently on Special Offer at just £89.95. Each luxury leather baby bag comes with a changing mat and there are plenty of pockets and compartments to store bottles, bibs, nappies and toys. A kitty cat patterned inner lining adds an adorable finishing touch.

Naming The Baby!

When it comes to the name game, it appears that fathers might as well keep their opinions to themselves, as according to a recent survey by Bounty Parenting Club, four out of ten mothers disregard the views of the father during the process of choosing a name for their new born.

The survey also revealed that the average couple considers twelve different names before settling on a final choice. However, one in four couples won't make their final decision until after the baby is born. Despite the current trends, a quarter of parents pick a name they selected when they themselves were children. A fifth of new parents named the baby after their favourite colleague or friend, while 37 per cent included a family name. Four in ten people took into account names approved by grandparents and 52 per cent avoided names of all their own friends and children.

Somewhat sadly, a third of couples actually fall out over their new baby’s name. As well as finding a name both partners like there are still loads of other factors parents have to take into consideration when choosing a name such as nicknames, what children may later be called in the playground and how first name will sound against the surname. Fifteen per cent of mothers fell out with a friend from whom they copied or stole a name they liked.

Unbelievably, one in ten parents end up drawing names out of a hat and a further 14 per cent toss a coin. For the babies of really indecisive parents, they remained nameless for an average of 11 days.
Even if a name is decided upon, the problems don’t end there. 17 per cent of couples fell out after one of them actually registered the baby with a different name to the one agreed or simply misspelt it on the birth register.

Lust for Blood Red Leather Handbags

What women wear from one day to the next generally depends on what mood we wake up in. This is why most of us females find it so difficult to pack for a holiday; we just don’t know how we’ll feel on the day. Will we be bright and sunny, or dark and mysterious?

If you fancy a little adrenalin rush, we suggest the colour red. Did you know that the colour red invokes intense emotions, stimulating the heart to beat faster and breathing to become more rapid? No wonder red is known as the colour of love.  It’s well documented that red clothes and accessories attract more attention to the wearer and a recent survey suggests that one in five men actually prefer a woman wearing red lipstick.

Amongst accessories, red is quite often used as an accent to lift an outfit whether as jewellery, belt, shoes, scarf or handbag. In this way you can create an alluring flash of sensuality without going overboard. Just think about Christian Louboutin’s famous red soled shoes of which he states, “I selected the colour because it is engaging, flirtatious, memorable and the colour of passion.”
