2nd Birthday Strawberry Party

Strawberry season is upon us in Australia, and with punnets at their very freshest and cheapest, strawberries make a fabulous party theme. When little Izzy turned two, her Mum Zoe put together the cutest strawberry party, beautifully photographed by Milk & Honey Photography in a park in Sydney's inner west. We are lucky to have Zoe share her tips and tricks with us on how to put together a strawberry party with lots of great savoury food ideas too.


Party: Izzy's Strawberry 2nd Birthday
Organised by: Mum - Zoe
Location: Laxton Reserve, Dulwich Hill
Theme: Berry-Sweet Strawberry Party
Photography: Milk & Honey Photography

Sun Smart beach getaway + WIN Australian beach shade and bags!

In my third Paint The Town Ford challenge as part of the Kidspot Voice Of 2014 program, our family of four drove up to Avoca Beach for a weekend getaway in my borrowed Ford EcoSport Titanium. We had glorious weather and spent lots of time on the beach with a cast of thousands.

We're always conscious of being Sun Smart, and covered up in style with great Australian products. Read more for details on our weekend, my favourite Australian-designed kids' swimwear, and how you could win the amazing Hollie & Harrie Sombrilla beach tent and stylish-and-practical waterproof beach bags from Project Ten.

Original A-frame kids play Wonder Tents

You might remember my story on rustic-inspired goodies, including Adelaide-based Such Great Heights in July last year where I showcased their amazing A-frame play tents for kids. There have been lots of imitators along the way, but SGH is still the original and the best. I love that they can guarantee that their products are created ethically, and with the genius conversion kit, the tent becomes a super-stylish clothes rack.

Portrait photography styled by Tutu du Monde in Sydney this weekend

It's a game of dress ups where you leave with incredible portrait photos of your little girls (age 1-12 years). Sound good? Tutu du Monde  has teamed up with photographer Camille Nuttall to capture your kids with professionally styled hair and gorgeous outfits from the latest collection, against a super cool backdrop of modern, French and vintage props. And she can take home a favourite dress from the collection too!

Behind the Scenes at Bondville

For the second of my three-part series in the Kidspot Voices of 2014 Paint The Town Ford challenge, the theme is Living Local. I think it's nice to share a little something personal on my blog every now and then, and thought you might find it interesting to get a behind-the-scenes look at how I live everyday life as a blogger in my charming neighbourhood of Beecroft in north-west Sydney, NSW.
