GIVEAWAY: Win tickets to the Australian Ballet’s Sleeping Beauty Story Time

GIVEAWAY: Win tickets to the Australian Ballet’s Sleeping Beauty Story Time

To be a ballerina. Whether you are five, fifteen, thirty-five or eighty five. Those of us who have grown up dancing, twirling, stretching and practicing ballet have long admired those few who have gone on the make their passion their vocation. To be able to set foot into a real ballet studio at the Australian Ballet School has long been something that I could only dream of. Until last week when Ella and myself were invited along to have our very own private ballet class with on of their ballerinas to celebrate the launch of the Australian Ballet’s story time : Sleeping Beauty. I have to admit, that I may have been a teeny little bit over the moon about my daughter being invited, and myself being able to ‘tag’ along. I felt myself floating when we walked through the carpark, and into the lifts to stand along side those girls and boys who, with their hair slicked into neat buns, and wearing block dance shoes on their feet, were about to attend their daily sessions of rigorous training. For an hour we would ‘dance’ along side them, and my daughter, in all her tutu glory would be able to be in her element in the most sought after dancing school in the country.

Evie from the company was our teacher for the lesson, and greeted the girls as fairy from the beautiful story of Sleeping Beauty. If you are not aware, Storytime Ballet: The Sleeping Beauty brings to the stage the classical ballet for years three and up, featuring Princess Aurora, Prince Désiré, a sparkling crowd of fairies, and storybook characters including Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf. Created especially for children, Storytime Ballet is sure to become an annual family favourite. Expect little ones to be dancing down the hallway with (almost) perfect pirouettes, long after the curtain comes down.
The production, which runs for a child friendly 50 mins and features a narrator to help kids navigate the storyline, will visit venues across Melbourne, Sydney and Queensland from 13 December – 25 January.

What’s even more exciting is the fact that we are giving away tickets to see this Ballet in Melbourne!

Giveaway: Win one of three pairs of Bobux Shoes

Giveaway: Win one of three pairs of Bobux Shoes

If you know me, then you know I love Bobux Shoes. If you’ve read my previous post / review about these little gems then you will know that they are simply the best, most light weight, fashionable shoe that your little one can have on their twinkle toes. They are also recommended by Podiatrists! The clincher for me is the velcro. It’s thick, and wide and actually keeps those little suckers on their feet!

Since last time we shared their range, Bobux is proud to announce the release of their latest styles- Aktiv & Xplorer City. This is the result of their exclusive partnership with Solène Roure, a French fashion designer based in London. Earlier this year, Solène – whose extensive portfolio includes companies as diverse as Nike, Yves Saint Laurent, North Face and Levi’s – turned her attention and distinct fashion design to kids’ shoes, collaborating with Bobux to create eight beautiful designs (ranging from Soft sole sizes S-XL and shoe sizes 18-29).

Bobux shoes

Following months of brainstorming and development, Solène’s shoe designs were unlike any other; they stunningly challenged the idea of what a child’s shoe can be.

Lucky for you we are giving away THREE PAIRS from this new range to three lucky winners. This giveaway is run via Instagram, so you will firstly need to head on over there.

To enter, simply

1. Head to this link: http://bit.ly/29iK9VP and decide which style you like. 

2. Follow @happyellaafter and @bobuxshoes on Instagram (click here to head to my account)

2. Like the photo (the one posted that looks like the one above) and comment with the style you would like to win

Giveaway: Attipas Shoes Australia

Giveaway: Attipas Shoes Australia

attipas_logo1I’m always on the look out for cool shoes for little ones, and when Attipas Shoes contacted me about their range, I was taken by surprise. If you have a toddler like me, who always takes her shoes off, but loves wearing socks, then these are for you. I’m always worried about Ella’s feet on the bare floor, but yet, she hates wearing shoes in the house. But then, so do I. Step in Attipas Shoes. If you can imagine a gorgeous pair of socks, with a rubber sole, then you’ve got an idea about Attipas shoes. The difference is, their shoes / socks are actual shoes. They slip on like socks, but protect your child’s feet. You can throw them in the wash, they are light weight, fit in your handbag and don’t fall off! Perfect for a busy Mum, and equally busy toddler!

unnamed

Attipas are a world first in toddler shoes! As light as a sock but more supportive than a pre walker, these functional infant shoes ergonomically support first steps & thereafter. Attipas toddler shoes are made with a non-slip gripped sole, are highly breathable. Attipas shoes were launched in 2011 after 7 years of research & development, and are quickly becoming the number one choice in pre walker shoes. Available in 8 styles & 4 sizes, Attipas shoes are Walking Science™. From birth to 40 months. 

According to Attipas, the five key benefits of wearing their shoes include:

  1. Convenience: non-slip and machine-washable

  2. Breathable: fine holes that release heat

  3. Big Toe Box: allows free toe movement to improve

cognitive and motor development

  1. Non-toxic: to prevent exposure to potentially harmful materials

  2. Lightweight: light and flexible, just like socks

Their range is to die for. Fabulous patterns, lace ups and a new Christmas range that is just perfect for the festive season. The limited edition styles in snowflake, cherry red and white designs are back and are the perfect way for all babies and toddlers to run, jump and skip their way into the Christmas joy. Not only do they look great, but the stylish pre-walkers are lightweight and comfortable for any toddler to walk and run around in.
