A Sneaky Peek at What’s in Store for 2013

I’m hoping that you’ve all had a great Christmas spent with those you love and enjoy spending time with. We spent our Christmas just the four of us, our first Christmas without extended family for 6 years and it felt good. Sometimes just being a family unit together can be very healing and balancing. We needed that this year.

Over the past few months I have immersed myself in the world of cyberspace and the bloggersphere. It’s been an eclectic mix of tweeting, blogging, and Facebook following! Quite mind-boggling if the truth be known. But it’s incredible how this new world of social networking through the internet allows us to connect with like-minded people quickly and easily.

I’ve found a number of people and companies particularly through Twitter that I never even knew existed. And they are really great finds too. It’s a world that can open you up to so many opportunities. For example, through connecting with one author, Charlie Plunkett, on my personal Twitter account, I was asked to contribute to her new book, 100 Little Words on Parenthood, which is a mix of anecdotes, experiences and words of wisdom on parenting told by parents, grandparents and experts. I was really excited to be part of this project yet this opportunity would probably never have presented itself for it not have been for the Twittersphere.

It’s therefore been lots of fun compiling a list of the companies, people, products and ideas I will be blogging about in the coming weeks and months. Some of them have been waiting in the dusty archives of my head waiting to be brought forth to share with you and others have sprung forth, which I have only just found.

So I thought I’d quickly share some of them with you so you can get a feel of what’s to come:

  • World of Creatures – Toddler Foam Wash and Toddler Body Mousse
  • Sotto E Sopra – Stylish, Casual, Eco Tops for women including a maternity range
  • Flibberti – Gorgeous craft jewellery sets for children (bracelet and necklace)
  • Chuckling Goat – Lavender Milk Soap and Lavender Goats Milk Cream
  • Babyhood - a parenting film that gives you the evidence, reassurance and support to follow your instincts
  • Green People - Men’s Range of Toiletries
  • Merino Kids - Toddler Sleepbags made of 100% natural merino wool
  • Natural Mat – Childrens mattresses made from 100% organic coir and local lambswool, natural latex or mohair or horsehair combinations, providing excellent ventilation and support.
  • Model Art Books – Children’s fashion model books to get them designing and being creative.
  • Tatty Bumpkin - Bamboo Sunshirts
  • BeSafe Car Seats for babies and children
  • Toddler Calm classes
  • Sling Meet - Helping parents around the UK meet other parents, and learn to carry their baby in a sling, learn to back carry, and be comfortable with their carriers.

These are just some of the blog posts I have coming in 2013. It’s really exciting to be sharing all these with you and I really hope you will enjoy reading about them in the coming weeks and months.

I am keen to find more chemical and paraben-free skin care ranges particularly for women and men. Also I would love to find a make up range that is truly natural and chemical free without any bulking agents added. If anyone reading this blog has ideas or recommendations I could look into, please do share in the comments section below or leave a comment on our FB page: SophiasChoiceUK - Thank you xx

Well my lovelies, there you have it. A little taster to wet your appetite. In case you don’t pop back again before the year is out, I’ll take this opportunity to wish you a fabulous New Year’s Eve whatever you do and a 2013 filled with opportunities, joy, abundance and love. We will be celebrating little Jess’ 2nd birthday that day, so more pressies and wrapping paper to play with. Hard to believe 2 years have passed so quickly. I’ll make sure I raise a glass to your good health and happiness that evening. But for now, “Cheers” !
