I can’t believe that on Thursday my baby girl turns one! So much has happened in the last 12 months, good and bad, but through it all she has been an absolute blessing.
I plan to write a birthday letter to her which I will share on her birthday but I’m a firm believer in the “Festival of the Birthday” and always love to kick off the celebrations early. What better way to do that than with a little bloggy giveaway? After all who doesn’t love presents?!
Pebbles and I thought we might share a few of our favourite things, while at the same time doing another of our favourite things – supporting awesome local mum’s build fabulous businesses!
Those that have followed my journey for a while, will know that when I found out Pebbles was a girl, I was a little apprehensive. Turns out all my fears were completely unfounded and I have totally embraced having a girl. Pink and pretty abounds!!
Pebbles isn’t a huge fan of me playing dress ups with her but she humours me on special occasions. Her birthday and Christmas are already sorted as I have ordered her the sweetest items from Velice!
Belinda from Velice is based in Brisbane and makes absolutely beautiful items for incredible prices. Her range includes bloomers, headbands, pettiskirts and her newest addition “Bear-Feet” sandals. Velice also print their own great range of wall decals.
To help us celebrate Pebbles’ birthday, Belinda is giving one lucky person a Velice bloomer and headband set of their choice!
When she was born, one of Pebbles’ favourite “Aunties” gave me a beautiful wooden and crochet teething necklace.
It continues to be one of our favourite accessories (mine for wearing, hers for chewing!)
The necklace came from Little Knox C, the business of Darwin-based mum Sam, who makes the cutest teething rings, blankets, necklaces, clothes and now, felt garlands. I couldn’t help myself and had to get Pebbles’ a #1 tee and a beautiful garland for her birthday party. Sam has also given me a gorgeous Little Knox C teething necklace to giveaway to one lucky reader!
Now Pebbles is at an age where she’s really interacting with things around her, I’m always on the look out for innovative toys. I love the range from Bryon Bay company Nic-Nac which includes an awesome selection of fair-trade and eco toys, as well as their own designs. You can buy directly from Kylie via the Nic-Nac website or in many great stockist’s across the country. I picked up some of their “Fairy & Dragon Eggs” for party favours and I’m very tempted to get Pebbles a felt crown for her birthday. And maybe a cute puzzle…
It’s not a birthday party without balloons, and these balloon balls from Nic-Nac are the bomb! Well, they aren’t actually because unlike normal balloons, these ones won’t explode!! Perfect for little ones to play with and we are fortunate to have a set of 3 balloon balls up for grabs.
So there you go! Everything we need for a perfect birthday celebration – prettiness and playthings!
