Where we stayed:
The Colour Trail
Aussie summer is in full flight, every January I say the same thing, “is it really this hot for this long!?” this week we spent 7 glorious nights on Kangaroo Island’s ‘Island Beach’, compared to the busy beaches we are used to, this basically felt like our own private oasis, the serenity, I’ve never experienced anything like it. With the busy lives we lead, and the crazy school routine about to begin again in just weeks, this was the perfect way to spend the summer, and no better time to road test our friends Sunny Jim and their luxury beach shades. We chose the ‘Sunny Jim Shade with Beach Bag’, its ultimate in chic and has the highest UV rating available (UPF50+), so lightweight and easy to put up, essential when dragging large families complete with two giant Labradors to the beach every day! The super durable beach bag comes with ample room for the Sunny Jim Sunshade and all your other goods. Check out more from Sunny Jim, here.

I don’t know about you guys but my kids are the BIGGEST snoops when it comes to tracking down their Christmas gifts. Aside from those from the big red man we always have a little gift exchange over breakfast with the presso’s we’ve chosen for one another wrapped under the tree. Eddie’s fishing rod last year….SUPER OBVS. Lily’s netball? ALSO OBVS!!
This year I’m determined to give them some element of surprise and delight on the day. They’ve both got their eye on fit bits and iPods, I just had to throw them off the scent, insert Australia Post Surprise Disguise wrapping kits!
Srsly, how fun is this idea. The handbag is genius, Lily will be certain she has her gift nailed. And that pyramid is going to keep Ed guessing for weeks! Check out the awesome range of creative gift disguise ideas from Australia post: HERE

Summer has not messed around this year, we’ve been hit with extreme temps over the last few days in South Australia, could not have been better timing than to test run our new brolly and beach cushions from crazy awesome Basil Bangs. Let’s be honest, they had me at those super fun designs. Best i’ve seen, like ever. I don’t care about anything else! I mean just LOOK at my Calypso baby!!!! that said, the quality, the weight, the ease to erect and dismantle, all 10/10. A sinch! Check out the range and some super fun designs, I’m eyeballing the Serge for the beach house, can’t resist a bit of nautical stripe. And as for the Kip & Co collab banana print. That would have to be next in line, so fun that you can coordinate your cushions too. You won’t miss us on the coast this summer! Get your order in before December 13 for Christmas delivery!
