Blogger Wins GBP 500 Next Vouchers in Dress Your Family for Christmas Day Competition

LEICESTER, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwire) -- 12/06/12 -- Lifestyle and mummy blogger Laura at Yummy Mummy Flabby Tummy has won a GBP 500 gift card in Next's Dress Your Family for Christmas Day competition hosted by Jane at northernmum.com. The winning blog post can be found here www.yummymummyflabbytummy.blogspot.co.uk/2012/11/christmas-day-looks-inspired-by-next.html where Laura went for morning and daytime outfits for herself, husband and two children from Next's Autumn Winter 2012 collections.

Laura begins with the look for herself, including a cosy pyjama set and slippers with a burgundy lace dress, black patent Mary Jane heels and sparkly jewellery for later, adding, "You can't beat a bit of Christmas sparkle." Also coming in a black alternative, this lace skater dress is a must have for the season - embracing the colour trends as well as romantic lace.

"For Husband, his morning look would be this beautiful fleecy burgundy robe and these lovely tartan-looking jammies and short sleeve t-shirt set. For the afternoon, Husband likes to keep smart but comfortable. I love him in just a jumper and jeans combo. The Y-neck jumper is in my favourite colour and Husband prefers a dark wash jean so we're both happy with this look."

In keeping with the present-opening pyjama look and stylish smart casual daytime outfits, Laura features the must-have nightwear of the season for her children - the essential onesie! For later on, she has picked jeans and a shirt for her son and a sparkly dress for her daughter. "This is a look that can be used again for any Christmas parties or New Year parties we have. I love the suede desert boots in navy as they match the shirt perfectly," she writes. "I love the colour and the sparkles really give it that special touch. I've added a pink cardigan to keep her warm and some gorgeous pink glittery shoes to complete her look. She'll be overboard on pink, but it is her favourite colour."

Host blogger Jane explained, "She won because the post felt really personal with images of the family so I could really sense how they would look in the clothes, I even know what her husband will be wearing under his trousers come Christmas Day morning!"

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will d...
While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes.

Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...
CI/CD is conceptually straightforward, yet often technically intricate to implement since it requires time and opportunities to develop intimate understanding on not only DevOps processes and operations, but likely product integrations with multiple platforms.

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Enterprises are striving to become digital businesses for differentiated innovation and customer-centricity. Traditionally, they focused on digitizing processes and paper workflow. To be a disruptor and compete against new players, they need to gain insight into business data and innovate at scale. Cloud and cognitive technologies can help them leverage hidden data in SAP/ERP systems to fuel their businesses to accelerate digital transformation success.
Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year.
