Push for publicity

Vicky and I both have diplomas in Public Relations - so we know all about what you should do to get lots of publicity for your business... but man, it takes a lot of time!! And time seems to be something we're really short of these days.

So we're doing the next best thing to trying to get our own publicity - we're getting someone else to do it! :)

I took the Public Relations program at Algonquin a bunch of years back, and the last semester of school is split half and half as a placement and a school-run PR agency. So I submitted us as potential clients and we've been accepted. YAY. Hopefully we'll get some good hits from it. And if you're a small business owner you may want to consider approaching colleges to see if you can get any free work in exchange for giving students real-world experience :)

Babies in black?

Black looks great on everyone right? But what about on your babies? To be honest, I had never even considered black as a colour for a baby until a friend of mine mentioned she had been searching everywhere for a black shirt for her infant daughter. Black goes with just about everything, so why not put your baby in a cute little black top or pair of pants?

We love the Dreamkids 'Anything but ordinary' little black top. The text comes in fuschia or white.

There's also the Babes in Black lap t-shirt, and little black pants.

Or how about this unique sushi top?

And of course there's my personal favourite, the Little Black Dress.

So tell us, what do you think about babies wearing black? Would you put your baby in black?
