HOT: The Art of the Brick, Federation Square, Melbourne

For a grown woman, I get inordinately excited by Lego. Witness me lining up whilst 8 months pregnant to get into Brickvention, Australia’s premier Lego fan convention. So as quickly as you can say ‘Lego Technic’ I hit the purchase button for tickets to The Art of the Brick, an exhibition of large-scale Lego sculptures by Lego […]

HOT: Pregnancy, Babies and Childrens Expo – Free ticket offer

When I was  six months pregnant with NKOTB, Tim and I ventured to our first ‘baby’ event – the Melbourne Pregnancy, Babies and Childrens Expo. It was held in the massive Melbourne Exhibition Centre and really worthwhile for us in terms of being able to suss out baby products and suppliers in one place at […]

HOT: Mums and Bubs movie sessions, Palace Westgarth, 89 High Street, Northcote

I love going to the movies. Before NKOTB, I would go to the movies on average every 2-3 weeks and during the Melbourne International Film Festival, sometimes twice a day. While one mother of my acquaintance has successfully smuggled her newborn baby into a cinema, I am too scared to do that – so Mums […]

The event this time? Brickvention 2011, Australia’s premier Lego fan convention! I love Lego. I spent many hours in my room as […]

HOT: Children’s Art Shows

JJ and I are keen to ensure that NKOTB grows up with a similar passion for the arts and culture as we do. I’ve already written about my plans for training the NKOTB to be a passionate supporter of the Brisbane Bears. However, our ambitions are as broad as they are high so we’re always on […]

HOT: Coco Baby Lounger

More HOT stuff from the Melbourne Pregnancy Babies and Childrens Expo and more love to sleek kids Scandinavian furniture. This time, it’s a self rocker from Bloom Baby called the Coco Baby Lounger. You already know that I have an aversion to fluffy ducks and bright padded quilting so I really didn’t fancy getting a […]

HOT: Melbourne Pregnancy Babies and Children’s Expo

Last Saturday, Joyce and I caught the Number 96 Tram all the way to the Melbourne Convention Centre and the Melbourne Pregnancy, Babies and Children’s Expo. It was as terrifying as it sounds. It was loud. There were screaming kids and blaring kids music for the whole day. (Joyce – I think we got a jolt […]
