After spending more than half a decade covering the children’s market as editor of HUDSON’S Childrenswear Review, (the magazine ceased publication with the Oct/Nov 2011 issue; recent attempts to re-enter the market remain unsuccessful) –I’ve come to appreciate its unique and inspiring nature. The world of children’s apparel and accessories, juvenile products, gifts and best business practices captures the imagination. And it’s like no other.
I keep in touch with treasured childrenswear contacts –and have been introduced to so many more- with Children’s Retail Today. It’s written for anyone with a passion for children’s fashion!
Parents, grandparents … gift-giving aunties, coaches, teachers and friends can learn about new products and where to buy … better yet, they can convince their favorite shops to carry them. Store owners, manufacturers, designers … mompreneurs and inventors can get inspired reading fresh posts about apparel and footwear collections, product launches, nifty services and best practices to take their business to the next level.
I’m delighted that Children’s Retail Today is growing strong. Take a peek – at the site and my Facebook page, if you like (pun intended here!).
I’ve also been developing content for my yoga studio, Maya Whole Health. This is a precious work in progress for me – I’m having so much fun writing the Maya Currents blog. I am so happy and grateful now that I’m part of the Maya community (I’ve been practicing there for a little more than a year). The teachers are beyond the best, and I’m meeting such incredible, loveable people. In June, I’m expanding my role there – and I can’t wait to see what happens (that’s what Bravo says, isn’t it?!)
“It’s a blessing to work at a job I truly enjoy doing, one that uses my creative talents and abilities, working with and for people whom I love and who love me.”
Each morning I say this affirmation softly to myself (thank you, Louise Hay).
