This year at the Kids Business Bloggers Bruch there were some exciting brands that I haven't met before. An event run by Kids Business, this agency specialises in social media initiatives, word-of-mouth campaigns and public relations for products and services targeting mums.
A motivating and interactive event where a group of brands engage personally with parents and lifestyle bloggers.
With amazing food supplied by Steggles, at a picturesque location Centennial Park, what more can a blogger ask for in a bloggers perfect day out.
It was great to see a variety of different brands showcasing their products, it definitely targeted every aspect of blogging from motherhood, lifestyle and fashion.
It was great to see Jura connecting with Bloggers, showing us how easy it is to be your own at-home barista using a Jura coffee machine. Even my son gave it a go and made himself a hot chocolate!
Not only did the lovely people at JURA Australia show us how to prepare and make the perfect cuppa but they are also supporting Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea 2016. JURA will be showing their support by donating $50 from the sale of each domestic coffee machine through April and May, by holding morning teas in retail stores and through staff fundraising across Australia.

Breville demonstrated three of their flagship products, the Boss to Go personal blender, the Quick Touch microwave, and the new Bakery Boss – the most powerful bench mixer in its class.

Amazing and delicious smoothies were available for tastings, even my son loved them!
Delicious green or chocolate smoothies with powerful anti-oxidants and vitamins hidden that even my son didn't know about, blended so finely, no bits were left in your mouth.
I was fortunate to receive one of these Boss-To-Go blenders, I will be trialling it with the family and will post my results.
Cobs Popcorn, a gourmet healthy option for late night snacks. I'm already a fan of their sweet'n'salty but had no idea how big their range was!
There were samples a plenty and each variety was full of flavour.
There is absolutely nothing artificial in Cobs Popcorn, with organic and natural ingredients, and made in a nut-free facility. Combining 100% wholegrain corn with the goodness of high oleic sunflower oil and raw sugar, this wholesome recipe uses only the very best natural ingredients.
Their delicious flavours include Lightly Salted, Slightly Sweet, Sea Salt, Aged White Cheddar, and Caramel Coated Popcorn.
Just because we become mums doesn't mean we forget about being fashionable. I'm already a fan of Table Eight and Rockman designs and now I am even more admirable to see that these brands support mums. Other clothing brands that were there Beme, W Lane and Amber Rose.
At the Bloggers Brunch, attendees were treated to an exclusive fashion showcase! We learnt how to dress for our body shape, received style consultations as well as tips and latest trends for every budget.
Sneak peek at the Winter Collection.
Also, a great selection of Amber Rose accessories too!
Sweet sounds were coming from the Yamaha stand. Yamaha is the largest supplier of sound equipment in the world. Yamaha's displayed a range of exciting audio products that work seamlessly with your home. I had no idea Yamaha created such beautiful pieces that blend in nicely with every decor of a home.
Blue-tooth speakers that camouflaged themselves amongst your home decor. A variety of styles, colours to choose from. My favourite was this picture frame speaker.
Lunch was brought out as it was time to have a break. Steggles supplied an amazing array of food. All healthy of course!
They also did a live demonstration on how to roast and carve the perfect chicken.
Delicious sangers and fruit kebabs.
As well as roasted chicken with salad in cute little boats.
And yummy desserts to have with our coffee or tea.
ASG discussed with bloggers how they can assist and support families to plan and invest in their children’s education with a range of education products and resources. You can invest from as little as $2 a day (Depending on your chosen fund and child’s age).
Life Space is an Australian company passionate about improving the health and wellbeing of Australians with a complete range of probiotics for the whole family.
They’re dedicated to providing the highest quality, specialist formulas based on the most recent clinical research. Kelli Proudfoot, Life Space’s Senior Naturopath was present to answer technical questions about probiotics and to explain the health benefits of probiotics.
I was very intrigued and eager to speak to the peeps at Lite'n'Easy as I want to lose weight and be healthier but didn't know how it could fit in with my family life as well as a budget.
What I did learn that they customise plans to suit individual needs and budgets so it's suitable for just about everyone.
I'm not sure why but whenever I'm around Medela products I get a little emotional. My son is now 9 years old and I still feel loyalty to this brand.
Remembering my desperate needs, wanting to breastfeed my son and couldn't (for medical reasons), I remember hubby and I wandering down the isles at Toys R Us looking for a breast pump and we were fortunate enough to speak with a Medela rep who was kind and understanding and showed us a pump that would be perfect. She saved my sanity and the pump gave me ability to feed my son breast milk. I was so distraught before finding a Medela breast pump, having tried three other brands and none of them were suitable.
Medela is the only leading global producer of technologically advanced breast pumps and vacuum technology. They also conduct a lot of research and provide education to the community and breastfeeding mums. Medela have been reaching out to the community through various exciting innovative programs assisting breastfeeding mums.
I am excited for mums that Medela have extended their support through their new mobile app MyMedela which is designed to support mums through pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Not only are they providing mums with products to assist but they go that one step further and reach out to support mums as well.
As the Bloggers Brunch came to a close, we said our goodbyes and went home with a wealth of information. A big shout out and thanks to the organisers for once again giving us an great day and opportunity to network.
