Make Up Tips for Teen Girls

Make Up TipsLess is More - Make Up Tips for Teen Girls

Having two teenage girls in the house means there is lot's of experimentation going on with make up and beauty products.

Some days are successful....some not so much.....

We all know the psyche of the teenage girl is tenuous at best.  So how do we encourage our girls to apply and wear the correct make up that suits them without sounding too critical?

Things Only Mums of Girls Say

Things only Mums would sayHow often do you hear these phrases come out of your mouth?

Since I have had my girls I seem have developed my own vocabulary.  

Some of the things that  come out of my mouth, I never thought I would hear spoken in civilised society, some however sound vaguely familiar..... I think I am slowly turning into my mother..

10 Reasons Why Girls Are Easier To Raise Than Boys

Are Girls Harder to Raise than Boys? 

A horrifying statistic came out last week that said apparently if your children were girls, you had a higher risk for your marriage to end in divorce.  I don't totally agree with everything that was mentioned in this article, however it got me thinking, is it harder and more taxing for parents to raise girls than it is for them to raise boys?

Parenting and Partying

I'm Not As Young As I Used To Be..

On the weekend I tried to relive my youth...... this seemed like a great idea..... at the time!!

On the surface I think I did this rather successfully. I danced the night away with my best friend and we had a ball!

We used to do this every week in our younger days. We would rush home from work with nothing on our minds except changing and heading off for a night of dancing and fun at the local hot spot, only to crawl home in the wee hours of the morning, to back up and do it all again the next day!

I am so "off" this week.  

Hubby is home on holidays and it has completely put me off my normal weekly routine....hence why I missed a post today and I am doing the Stumble Upon Link Up post at 9.30pm the night before........

We have had a week of shopping, lunches and home renovations..... added to that school going back from Winter break,  I haven't known whether I was coming or going!!

Anxiety Disorders In Children

Barbie Bieber and BeyondHelping an Anxious Child

Our little family has been through a lot of turmoil in the last couple of years. As most of you already know I lost my dear Dad 2 years ago. This time has brought a period of untold sadness to our whole family and still continues to, to this day.

His death affected my girls very deeply and it is still something we are all coming to terms with, even two years later. I am starting to think it is something that we will never get over completely.

During this time my oldest daughter was 14 years old and the youngest only 4.  My older two girls fully understood what was going on,  the youngest really had no idea.

How to Tell If Your Daughter is a "Mean Girl"

Mean Girls Is Your Daughter a Mean Girl?

Girls as we all know can be mean, nasty and downright bitchy, living in a household with 4 of them I am witness to this on a daily basis!

The way girls treat each other can be so very different to the way boys interact with each other and indeed the way girls and boys interact with each other.

Bullying amongst girls can sometimes be very difficult to notice from an outsiders perspective.  Girls can be mean to other girls often very quietly and very sneakily. 

It will often involve taunts via social media and text or quiet whispers and pointing the school yard and often the most damaging thing to a young girl....isolation.
