Do You Know The Singing Waiters?

If you happen to live in the UK and you are somewhat up-to-date with what’s going on in London entertainment scene, you will likely have heard of The Singing Waiters. The reason is that The Singing Waiters are U.K.’s most popular so-called “surprise entertainment” act.

If you don’t know what “surprise entertainment” is, think about those musicians and dancers that can be booked for events such as weddings or birthdays where they attend the party disguised so that no one knows today are actually here. The guests are usually thinking that those guys are just normal waiters until, of course, they start with their show out of the blue. This form of entertainment is very popular right now because it can make for the most memorable events for everyone, much better than your average wedding band.

The Singing Waiters are not just popular because of their classic “singing waiters” act, but in recent times also because of various flash mob performances at the most popular public spots all across the United Kingdom. Now, the successful surprise entertainment group has expanded their musical repertoire even more. They now have special acts for children’s birthdays where they appear as superheroes and have just recently started to perform on a number of British cruise ships as well.

The success of The Singing Waiters in the UK and beyond is mainly based on that all the members in the group have a professional background in music and dance. This makes The Singing Waiters not only a good choice for light entertainment, such as for weddings or parties, but also for “more serious” events such as corporate  entertainment where someone is booking the group for quality world-class entertainment, up to and including stunning vocal Jazz or classical Opera performances.

What Schools In the UK Are Best For Your Children?

private – independent – school

When you think about the best school for your children you should also consider whether a private school wouldn’t be a better option as compared to having them to go to a public school.

Many times, public schools can be seriously lacking in many aspects.

The biggest problem with public schools is that they are often overcrowded. 35 or more pupils per class are not uncommon today. This means that teachers are not only overworked and stressed-out, they are also unable to focus on those children who would require their assistance most. As a result, the grades for those children can be significantly worse in public schools as compared to private schools.

The better education you can get at many of the UK’s great private schools will almost always provide your kid an advantage later on. A lots of employers today look closely at their applicant’s CVs and their education history. Many times, those people who visited private schools are those who get the job as compared to their competitors that come from public schools.

Private schools in the UK are also normally offering better choices for activities such as sports and music. Public schools may treat those subjects as “not so important” which means that your children will not be given those opportunities to learn traits such as responsibility or fairness that they can learn when they actively participate in activities such as sports.

I think that private schools are infinitely better than our public schools. For that reason I am sending my children to a private school. I think it’s something every family should consider. Even with the costs of private schools, it is something that will always pay off. See Independent School Hertfordshire if you want to learn more about how private schools can benefit your children!

Would you love a honeymoon under the sun on a tropical island or would you rather prefer to spend your time in a an exciting city with flair such as Paris? No matter what taste you have, I found a great list with ten of the best luxury honeymoon destinations that I can highly recommend to you!

The honeymoon list at The Telegraph goes over such great exotic destinations like St. Lucia in the Carribean or Niyama in the Maldives. And if you’d like the flair of a world-city, check out their descriptions and tips for a great holiday in Venice or Paris.

Of course, the list has a lot more honeymoon destinations for you but I say it’s best if you check the list for yourself!

What I like about this list is that it also lists the prices for honeymoon packages, that is all the prices including hotel stays and the flights and not all of those luxury honeymoon destinations must cost a fortune!

If however you are on a budget and want to spend your money wisely, how about a camping honeymoon? Make no mistake, such a camping honeymoon can be a lot of fun and is sure not to beat when it comes to excitement! Just rent a luxurious camper van for an amazing honeymoon on a budget!

Getting in Shape Before Your Big Day

fitness-weddingIf there is still some months to go until your wedding day, it can be a great opportunity for you to get in top shape in the meantime! If you plan on a wedding this coming spring or summer, now in the colder time of the year is the ideal time to get fit and in shape and do something for your body!

You would be surprised how easy it can be to lose the one or the other unwanted pound or maybe to build up those abs or butt muscles you always wanted. No matter what, a bit of exercise is the best thing you can do rather than let the winter months go by idly. Comes spring and summer, be assured  you will be thankful for your efforts.

Fortunately, getting in shape for your big day shouldn’t be an issue since you won’t have to look long find a good fitness studio or gym. Almost any town has them today and they have gotten very affordable as well.

However, if you want to get in shape and want to do that properly I recommend that you do not simply sign up with a gym but rather  choose a fitness gym that can offer you personalized training and advice. Not all gyms might offer trainers so it might be worth comparing a few side-by-side. A personalised trainer can tell you about the right exercise routines such as when you want to get a flatter tummy, stronger abs or want to lose the one or the other unwanted pound here or there. You don’t have this type of guidance when you simply get a gym membership card!

A good fitness studio I recommend should you happen to live in or near London is the London Fields Gym. What I like about them is their good selection of exercise equipment and they are very friendly and helpful trainers. They have a bunch of fitness classes like Pilates in Hackney you can join. the best thing is tell them about your upcoming wedding, they can help you to get in top form! (And of course this works for your husband to be as well!!)

wedding-etiquetteWeddings can surely be stressful at times and the fact that what is considered proper wedding etiquette is constantly changing is sure not helping either.

So how would one know what is and what is not acceptable? Just to mention one only asked question, is it acceptable to tell everyone that you would prefer money rather then betting gifts?
