Announcing C.W. Seacoast Luxury Restroom Trailers

An entrepreneur is at it again! My father, Michael Parkin, is no stranger to new business ventures and opportunities. The owner of two successful businesses, Exeter Events & Tents and Sperry Tents Seacoast, he has decided to use his business savvy, entrepreneurial sprit to start a new venture, “W.C. Seacoast”, a business providing portable luxury restroom facilities. An outdoor event evokes images of beauty, luxury, and exclusivity; the image of a bride in a portable toilet does not.

Luxury restroom trailers provide guests with a restroom that is elegant, private and clean. C. W. Seacoast is introducing two options for clients, The Seacoast Spa and The Seacoast Valletta. The Seacoast Spa has flushing toilets, a working sink and vanity, heating, air conditioning, wood grain floor, and crown molding. The Seacoast Valletta has all of the features of The Seacoast Spa, but the exterior is designed to aesthetically look like a garden cottage.

Note to Brides and Grooms: Don’t Forget to Buy Each Other a Present

Shap2(NewsUSA) – If you’re reading this story, you’re probably one of the approximately 825,000 couples who’ve just gotten engaged since Thanksgiving and are now planning your wedding. So here’s perhaps the single most important reminder — and grooms do seem to need more reminding than brides — anyone will offer: Tradition holds that you both exchange wedding presents.

(Yes, grooms, even though you just bought her an engagement ring.)

But what to get?

“Gifts should come from the heart,” says

Well, yeah. But that still leaves a lot of room for error. So here’s some tips to keep in mind whether you two opt for some type of jewelry — the traditional and most popular choice — or something else.

* Practicality can wait. Etiquette dictates that gifts be exchanged at one of three times: the night before the wedding, the morning of the ceremony, or right before you leave on your honeymoon. So you could see where this has the potential for becoming a bigger disaster than Chernobyl if the groom’s idea of “practical” is, say, a toaster.

* Being uniquely personal is appreciated. One of the best examples we’ve heard of is a guy who had a photographer secretly capture the moment he proposed in New York’s Central Park, and then presented the results to his bride on the day of their wedding.

“So cute!” read a typical blog post.

The downside, of course, is that pulling it off requires imagination and — in this instance — a lot of advance planning.

* Jewelry can be “traditional” without being boring. Case in point: the very hot Argyle diamondstrend (, which fulfills the quest of even the most eco-minded couples for diamond fashion jewelry since the stones are produced in a socially and environmentally responsible way from the Argyle mine in Australia. And the diamonds, themselves, come in gorgeous neutral shades like champagne, cognac, silver and gray.

“If your bride likes something different from what all her friends have,” says jewelry and style expert Michael O’Connor, “then the Argyle diamond bracelets, necklaces and earrings are perfect and available at many retailers across the country — I’ve even spotted women at gyms wearing the diamond pendants. And the cufflinks for men are truly elegant.”

Perhaps because prices start at as little as a few hundred dollars for some pieces, O’Connor calls them “the ideal gateway gift.” Meaning, you can use other occasions — think birthdays and anniversaries — to add to your collection through the years.

Yes, brides and grooms, you’ll soon have to start planning your next milestone together.

The Best Relationship Advice From Real People

Charlotte Hilton Andersen



Whether it’s a call on the drive home from work or a pow-wow in the kitchen as soon as you both walk in, a quick check-in with your spouse will get you both on the same page. ‘Sometimes it is planning coordination for which kid is going where and other times it is catching up on what’s going on in both of our worlds,’ say Melissa and Aaron Sauser, of Minneapolis, Minnesota.


Turn on the comedy channel, tell a joke, or buy a cartoon-a-day calendar, and then share the giggles. ‘There is nothing like the unity that comes when you are both laughing together about the same thing at the same time,’ say Amy and Vaughan Nelson, of Lacey, Washington. The key to a great laugh fest? ‘It can’t be at the other person’s expense!’ Amy adds. Continue reading

The Piece of Online Dating Advice That Could Change Everything

p_0017Women’s Health


All of my single girlfriends who are doing the online dating thing know my golden rule: Don’t be afraid to message him first. I once used this strategy and ended up dating one guy for two-and-a-half years. He told me shortly after we got together that he wanted to message me first, but was too intimidated and assumed I would just blow him off.

Ten months ago, my best friend followed my golden rule and reached out to a guy. He said that he had never seen her profile pop up on the site before, and was actually about to cancel his membership. Today, he’s no longer on the site—because his relationship with my BFF is still going strong. “He says that me reaching out to him made me seem really confident and like I knew what I wanted,” she says.

It’s no surprise that money is one of the biggest reasons couples fight, given that it’s a huge factor in determining your stress, happiness, and the kind of life you live in general. But it’s also extremely personal, and sometimes talking to someone about finances can feel almost as intimate as standing in front of them completely naked.
