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.

Oobi's Halloween Spooky range for girls 3-11 years

Do your kids love Halloween as much as ours do? We're all for a chance for the little ones to use their imagination and dress up - there's so much excitement as they plan outfits with their friends and we walk around the streets chatting to neighbours. It's not really about the lollies for us, but more about having fun and making memories for the little ones.

If you don't have time to DIY, now there is an alternative to standard costumes from one of Australia's favourite kids' fashion labels, Oobi. These cute outfits and accessories are available for girls in sizes from 3-11 years and have plenty of potential for wear throughout the year. Love them!
