UP!

UP! A beautiful movie for the whole family  I had forgotten how beautiful UP! is both in story and in creation. I’m really fussy about what my kids watch and this one is spot on. The story has it’s sad moments and happy beautiful moments. Visually, it’s bright and colourful.   I love UP! even […]

Nubo Alexandria – my favourite play space in Sydney

Nubo Alexandria Oh my gosh, Nubo Alexandria was everything I had hoped it would be. It’s pretty, it’s functional, it’s unique and it’s perfect for parents and kids.
