                                              07 September 2015

                                              By Charlie’s dad... At around the same time that we were approaching our son Charlie’s fifth birthday, we happened to spend an afternoon flicking through our hundreds of family photographs. As we looked at them, I just thought about what a great story the pictures could illustrate – all these memories came flooding back and I guess I started to think about putting them in a scrapbook. Not knowing how to put together a magazine or book myself I looked online for a company that might be able to put something together for us and, fortunately, I came across LifetimesMAG.com. I liked the loo...  (Read More)
                                            • The best man's big dilemma

                                              01 September 2015

                                              By the LifetimesMAG scribbler... Who has the most difficult job at a wedding? The caterers? The photographer? The bride’s hair stylist? It’s a matter of debate, but the best man has it tough. He may have already organised various waifs and strays on the stag do, possibly mediating in an international incident in some obscure Eastern European city involving some long-lost friends of the groom. On the day itself, far from just remembering the rings, suddenly the best man is thrown into a confetti of transport arrangements, timings, photographers and helping Great Auntie Ada into a pew, wh...  (Read More)

                                              26 August 2015

                                              By new bride Lynda ‘Keep calm and carry on!’ Great advice, if we could all keep to it. But every bride has at least one Bridezilla moment, and anyone who tells you otherwise is telling porkies. It happened a couple of times to me. When my appointment at the beauticians got mixed up several weeks before the big day? Grrrr, don’t get me started.... And then, the day before the wedding, when our stationary company cheerfully phoned me up to say that our wedding guestbook was finally ready to pick up: ‘Sorry what’s that, you’ve put the WRONG name on the front cover???’ The word ‘rage’ does...  (Read More)
                                            • The Anniversary gift conundrum

                                              17 August 2015

                                              By the LifetimesMAG Scribbler... When it comes to buying a memorable gift, anniversaries can be a real headache. How can you give your ‘better half’ something that they will remember – something that celebrates your partnership rather than the sort of individual present that you would give at Christmas or on their birthday? Moreover, what on Earth do you buy a couple who have been together for years and years? Here at LifetimesMAG we love special occasions and celebrations, and when you have been married for 30 years, an extra special celebration is surely in order! Tracy and Stewart ...  (Read More)
