Unique Gifting: Annika’s Top 3

NSW School holidays have ended! Although we’re sure that didn’t need to be announced!

We chat to so many parents with kids in school and there are both pro’s and con’s to school holidays aren’t there?! Some of the pro’s are no more ironing school uniforms, no more packing lunches, no more early starts getting the kids ready for school and out the door on time and no more school pick ups. Plus spending quality time with the kids is, of course, priceless.

But there is a lot of planning and energy involved. Re-organising work schedules, planning activities in that will be both fun and entertaining every single day, and for some, the lack of daily routines and structure can be a bit too much to bare! We get it, so it doesn’t come as a surprise that parents look forward to when school goes back.

It’s been all about the kids for the past couple of weeks and with Mother’s Day coming up in 2 weeks on May the 13th, it is a wonderful time shift the focus a little – to reflect and to celebrate all that Mum does and to gift her something thoughtful and special.

With this in mind, we hosted a Mums Morning Tea recently at Hypmotive hub, where we caught with local Inner West Mums to find our their “TOP 3” for Mother’s Day.

Check out Annika’s Top 3 and we hope you find some inspiration!

NAIDOC Week 2017

Did you know that Australia has over 250 indigenous languages?

There is always something incredible to learn about Australia’s incredible indigenous history.

This week is NAIDOC Week, an Australia wide celebration and reflection of the culture, history and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples.

We acknowledge that the traditional landowners and prior ownership of this land in Marrickville, where we live and operate Hypmotive Hub from, is by the Cadigal people of the Eora nation.

This week and every day we pay respect to them, their culture and Elders past, present and emerging.

National NAIDOC week is a great opportunity for everyone to get involved with and support their local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.

This week Hypmotive Hub will be to donating 100% of profits for every 30x30cm authentic indigenous artworks* sold to AIME which is the Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience. AIME’s mission and focus is ending educational inequality for Indigenous kids. You can find out more about AIME via their website https://aimementoring.com

There will be a number of events and ceremonies held across Sydney throughout NAIDOC week, see link below to what’s on in Sydney. You can also check out this additional resource copied in below this week and beyond to learn more about Australia’s Indigenous culture.
