And then they were nine… It’s hard to believe that those teeny tiny premmie twins have grown into beautiful, delightful 9-year olds, each with a different personality but so wonderful in their own way. I won’t lie, I find it hard to see them grow up so fast and letting them go into the big scary world that is out there. As a mother of four girls (and a boy) I am always looking for ways to inspire my little ladies and help them grow into strong, confident women, which is why I was so excited to discover the Girl Hero Project:

Powered by Australian author Susannah McFarlane, who you may know from her successful book series EJ12, the Girl Hero Project is a brand new online space dedicated to tween girls and their parents. Susannah’s vision for the platform is to offer a safe, age-appropriate environment where girls can go to hear a different dialogue around what it means to be a girl, to encourage girls to speak up, get active in their communities, to inspire them to write, play and learn that they are never too small to do big things.

It is no secret that tween and teen girls are struggling in today’s society, and that building their confidence and self-esteem from an early age is incredibly important. The Girl Hero Project doesn’t waste words on all the superficial things society cares for, and instead focusses on strong, inspirational girls who make a difference in their community and the world, who lift others up instead of breaking them down and who, as young as they are, build long-lasting legacies.

By becoming a Girl Hero you can learn about other inspirational girl heroes, read and share helpful inspirations and tips, create affirmations for yourself and your friends that empower and lift you up, join in the writing competition and much more. And the best part is, everyone can join in and it is completely free!

As a special treat for Hip Little One readers author Susannah McFarlane is kindly giving away a copy of her fabulous book EJ Girl Hero – Hot and Cold to the first 10 Hip Little One readers who join the Girl Hero Project. As if you needed another reason to get your girl(s) involved with this awesome movement! For your chance to score this fantastic read for FREE simply become a Girl Hero here and enter the promo code ‘HLO17’ during sign up. Good luck!

SodaStream

With just ten days to go until Christmas many of us are starting to feel the pressure. Decorating the house, organising a festive family dinner, doing the shopping and of course sourcing that one perfect present for each of your guests. People often say it is impossible to make everyone happy but is actually surprisingly simple thanks to SodaStream:

SodaStream Power

Most people will remember SodaStream from their childhood, making instant fizzy in their retro orange kitchen. However there is nothing old-fashioned about SodaStream: these days the drink makers and reusable bottles look sleek and trendy, the range of delicious flavours is always growing and (very important) SodaStream is doing an amazing job reducing the number of drink bottles headed to landfill.

SodaStream bottlesThe durable SodaStream bottles have a three year lifespan which means they can save the average Australian family (and the environment) up to 2,190 bottles and cans, now that’s what I call environment friendly! Even the gas cylinders are reusable, once empty you can take your cylinder to one of the many SodaStream retailers across Australia for a direct swap at a reduced rate instead of purchasing a whole new gas cylinder. The cylinders will then be refilled by SodaStream ready for another round of fizzy fun.

Whether it’s a tonic for Grandpa, an ice tea for Grandma, a cola for hubby, lemonade for the kids or simply a sparkling water for the health nut in the family, SodaStream is sure to please everyone this Christmas. There are currently more than 40 different SodaStream flavours (including diet and sugar free options) to choose from, making SodaStream the perfect fit for everyone and every lifestyle. That’s Christmas gift giving made easy!

SodaStream

As you may know I am on a slow and steady mission to reclaim my body after giving birth to our little Harriet 11 weeks ago. I said goodbye to unhealthy snacks, cut down on unnecessary carbs and replaced unhealthy soft drinks by water and so far I am doing very well. In saying that, I do miss the refreshing tingles that come with a nice cool glass of soda so bubbles in my water are a must. The bubbles really help quench my thirst on a hot summer day and make it much easier for me to reach my 2-3 litre water a day goal, plus they hide the yucky taste of Australian tap water.

SodaStream Power

Instead of buying expensive bottles of sparkling water (3 litres a day quickly adds up) I use our SodaStream machine to make my own freshly carbonated water, it is always there when I feel like it and I can add just the right amount of fizz, perfect! At the same time hip daddy can still enjoy his choice of soft drinks and make them fresh on demand, after all no one likes flat soft drinks in the fridge. We have been using our SodaStream drinks maker for more than four years now and I still love it at much as when I tasted my first home-made soft drink.

SodaStream Raspberry

Because I use it so often and SodaStream is a real fixture in our kitchen the stylish new mains powered SodaStream Power (RRP AUD $199.00) feels right at home on our kitchen bench, I am loving the update. I really like the modern designer look and the way you can carbonate your water with the touch of a button and I very much appreciate the quietness of the SodaStream Power particularly when our Hattie is asleep nearby.
