Nautical Birthday Party Ideas For Children

In Lifeby eva.katona@yahoo.com5 Comments

I decided to go for nautical themed decoration for Bobcat’s 2nd birthday party. I really like nautical design (of everything) and it’s easy to coordinate. Because it’s easy to coordinate colour and pattern-wise, it doesn’t cost an earth either. Unlike character based theme parties you can easily find substitutes if you need to. There’s also plenty of opportunities for a …

In Lifeby eva.katona@yahoo.com1 Comment

Sure enough, I’m not alone with my mum telling me that baby powder is a must. I should use it after bath in the evening and in the morning to help to maintain dry skin and avoid rashes.
