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!

Loving: Thankyou ethical hand wash

I discovered the Thankyou hand wash in my local grocery store a few weeks ago and we love it to bits. With its smart packaging, our hand soap looks great in our new bathroom, smells good, doesn't include any nasties (SLS, SLES, Parabens, detergents, artificial colours etc), and all ingredients are sourced ethically. It's not tested on animals, and is 100% recycled. On top of that, the sale of one Thankyou Body Care bottle directly contributes to one needy person receiving access to health and hygiene training. You can find the Thankyou Body Care range in Australian grocery stores including Coles, Woolworths and IGA. Have you tried it out too?

Family Day Trip: 8 things to do in Dural and Brooklyn, NSW

I've been hugely lucky this year to be loaned a zippy Ford EcoSport Titanium as part of the Kidspot Voices of 2014 program and this weekend took advantage of the gorgeous Spring weather to take the EcoSport for a semi-rural escape/half-day trip to peaceful Dural, NSW.

Dural is only 36 km north-west of the Sydney CBD but feels like you've reached the country, with its rolling hills, horses, farms, and views out to the Blue Mountains. It's instantly relaxing and perfect for a Sunday drive - ours was in the Ford EcoSport Titanium - a small SUV, but a comfortable fit for our family of four (including child restraint and booster seat). I have to admit, being 157cm, visibility can be challenging in most SUVs, but I felt the EcoSport fitted me perfectly.

Next time you want a mini escape that's not maxi distance from Sydney, read on for my favourite stops in this Sydney suburb:

Udder effortlessly cool children's clothes - huge sale

I've been following Fliss from Udder's journey for years along the south-east coast of QLD creating beautiful handmade toys and effortlessly cool kids' clothes, and now to Bali where she and her family are continuing their creative endeavours. Sadly for us, Fliss is discontinuing her children's clothes line to focus on her new ceramics line (exciting!), but the good news for us is that her gorgeous clothes have been heavily reduced (up to 70% off!).

Oobi is one of those children's clothing brands that has a true cult following. Oobi Mamas love Oobi with a passion and really connect with the labels fresh, fun, 'let them be little' ethos and mix-and-match prints. My girls have worn and loved so many Oobi pieces and still live in their Oobi hats, which is why we are excited to see this classic Australian brand expand up to size 11 for tweens!
