You don’t have to look hard at our Instagram page to realise how much we adore Bobux Shoes. First brought to my attention as a birthday present for Brock when he turned one they quickly turned into his favourite shoes and since then we have added a few more to the collection! Safe to say I am a Bobux Convert.


 Bobux have been at it since 1991 so safe to say they have been around a while to know their stuff! Their key goals are to create footwear that is good for kids feet and have beautiful design aspects. They are constantly learning and striving to achieve the very best in foot care and as a parent this should be your number one focus, the wrong pair of shoes can do a lot more damage in the long run.


Some key facts to know about Bobux are that they are child safe and non toxic, tested to reach standards and endorsed by podiatrists. They also offer shoes from newborn to pre-schoolers and each shoe is developed for the appropriate age. Gorgeous soft soled leather shoes for the newborns and a harder sole (thats still flexible) for the older kids. There is also a fast variety of colours and prints on offer to suit any child or parents taste. Bold colours, on trend monochromes and more classic designs and colours. Your child will always look stylish in any Bobux shoe.



Since owning Bobux shoes they have been tried and tested. Brock is not gentle, he doesn’t sit still and yet our Bobux shoes are still going strong. They have been on Brocks feet through the muddiest of puddles, running down sand dunes and general beach play, on the farm, parks and all our other many adventures through forest, pavement and dirt. I’m also not one to carefully clean anything so I just hose them off in the sink, let them dry and they are back on his feet the next day ready for another exciting adventure. Brock is also a Bobux lover and loves to stop and show people his shoes, it was cute at first and I thought it was because they were new but to this day he is still pointing out his shoes to strangers.


I could really go on and on about how much we love Bobux shoes but take it from us, our many friends and kids from all over the world who also own a pair. Bobux are a winner for your childs feet!

Life With Brock xx





Gippsland Makers Market


What a turn out, everyone involved with the Gippsland Makers Market should be very proud of what they achieved. Fantastic location, amazing stalls and such a great day! Possibly the only down fall of the event was parking, you would of thought the amount of streets and the 200 car parks available in front of the market would have been sufficient but it was chaos. Imagine Fountain Gate at christmas time. People were even making up their own spaces. Through no fault of the market though. Crazy parking is usually expected at these events but could people please listen to their advice and don’t block the service road.

Brock and I decided (well I decided and he had to go along with it) that we would check out the stalls and round up our top picks for the day.

Timberland Tribes



This beautiful little store has the most gorgeous hand made wooden toys, perfect for growing minds and imaginary play. I of course was a huge fan of the turquoise camera, but I could easily buy it all. Those little mountain peaks would be the perfect accessory for any kids bedroom, especially if you love a good “shelfie.”



Lekkel & Co


Such vibrant colours and fantastic products. I’ll be adding those mini deck chairs to Brock’s Christmas list. The only problem would be deciding on a colour! Lekkel & Co offer lounge bags, mini deck chairs, beach clutches, outdoor throw cushions, swim bags, outdoor seat pads, outdoor floor cushions and waterproof totes! By the end of the market you could of found Brock and I curled up in one of these lounge bags!







Visiting this store and I could almost here myself “clucking” these items were perfect for a nursery/child’s bedroom. They make Teepees, baby clips, baby play gyms, teether’s, mats and blocks. Not sure if that fabric is for you? Well they also do custom orders. Definitely worth checking them out!




Potted Life


I think I could just leave the photos here…seriously how amazing are these pots? Handcrafted and the perfect added decor to any home.





Hello Sweet Mae


Beautiful handmade homewares and accessories such as fabric baskets and zipper pouches. Such beautiful prints and great quality. I’m pretty sure our house could do with a touch of colourful organisation.





Parkly Press


The last in our round up is Parkly Press, they create custom designed stationary. We will definitely be getting in touch with Erin. These would make the perfect gift for someone or if your like me you will just buy it yourself.
