The NHS has been facing ever-increasing pressures in recent years, with slashed budgets, staff shortages and lack of resources taking its toll on the quality of care. One of the many ways we commonly see the impact of these pressures is in waiting times for GP…
The day you’ve dreamed of for years has finally arrived! Your little girl is all grown up and has chosen a partner to start her life with, and you are officially a MoB -- Mother of the Bride! While congratulatory remarks are appropriate at this juncture, so are a few…
This one is as simple as crowdfunding your honeymoon. It might sound strange at first, but do you really need another blender or set of dinner plates? Instead of having your guests purchase a bunch of things you’ll end up trying to return anyway, why not let them chip in for…

My name is Nathalie, and I live in Charlotte, NC with my husband Carlos, son Louis (almost 7), daughter Sophie (4 going on 16) and dog Bogie. I am a WAHM, so my life often feels like a big juggling act. My sister-in-law Paula (who lives in Long Beach, CA) and I started a company called Professor Pocket that helps children develop a lifelong passion for learning new languages. She and my husband grew up in a bilingual home, so they are 100% fluent in Spanish and English. I want my children to have that same experience and develop a deeper appreciation of the world around them.

Hi there from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York where you'll find light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie. So if you get a chance to kick back and exhale, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time.
I'm writing to introduce you to a new website I launched for Charlotte parents last month. Charlotte TRACKS, located online at www.charlottetracks.com, is an acronym for "Tools, Resources and Activities for Carolina Kids." As a local mom of three and a former magazine editor, I've come across lots of great resources for kids in the Charlotte region, so I decided to put them all on ONE website for local families to use. Charlotte TRACKS is also a social networking site for parents, so those who join can post blogs, forums, calendar events and other information for other parents to see. I started Triangle TRACKS at www.triangletracks.com for parents in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill region a year ago, and it's doing very well out there, so I decided I would start one for Charlotte as well.
I also wanted to reach out to you to find out if you could let your Charlotte friends know about this site via email, Twitter or other Charlotte social networking sites you belong to. And if you get a chance, let me know what you think of Charlotte TRACKS.
Thank you for the add on. It is always wonderful to make new friends. It is especially nice when they have the same interests. Here's hoping that your day is wonderful and your weekend brings you peace and joy. Miriam
