Well, Halloween weekend is finally here and we couldn't be more thrilled. Our wonderful photo contributor, Lizzy Williams, has put together this amazing Halloween spread for us and we are so excited to share it with you today. We think these gorgeous photos speak for themselves- "Lions + Tigers + Bears-OH MY!" Scroll down for costume sources.
Founder, Kristy Withers decided to create Incy after a long and exhausting search to find her son Oscar‘s first ‘big boy bed’. An extensive search throughout Australia and overseas left Kristy frustrated and little Oscar stuck in his crib. Kristy recognised an opportunity to bring quality designer furniture to Australia and with the help of a team of very talented people, Incy was born!
Incy products can now be found in over 170 stores in Australia and internationally - New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong, UAE and now, USA!
Take a look at the gorgeous range of beds for your little ones and be sure to follow incy on instagram to see the new styles coming out soon!

It seems like we are constantly on a never ending hunt for the perfect pajamas for our littles (especially the old fashioned two piece kind) so you can imagine how psyched we were to discover My Little Shop.

Focusing on a delicate approach using beautiful soft cotton, very fine laces, with quality, originality and style, thee are the pajamas of our dreams!

We love to plan playdates for our littles and with a holiday like Halloween around the corner it called for all sorts of fun!! Since this holiday is all about the sugar, we thought why not add more?! I know we are crazy, haha!! But hey, if it involves baking and decorating cookies it's worth the craziness, right?
We set the tone with fun pumpkin shaped plates by The Duo Studio and personalized by Blot & Dot, they were a hit! And a keepsake they can keep for future Halloweens to come! Our table was full of pumpkins and gourds with funny sayings and lots of orange, black, white and copper!
Parchment Cookies made the most adorable Fall and pumpkin themed cookies for the kids to try and recreate... Their efforts didn't come close of course, but they sure had fun getting messy and trying!!
It was a fun little afternoon to play and get creative! We hope you get inspiration for having fun with your littles this Halloween too!

When we came across these beautiful custom quilts from our friends at Stitched, we just knew our readers would love them just as much as we do. Each of these gorgeous baby quilts will bring joy and delight not just now but for years ( and generations) to come. Every item is handcrafted with only the finest fabrics and craftsmanship. Stitched Quilts can be used as baby quilts, baby blankets, bibs, wall hangings, bed quilts, lap quilts and much more. All items are individually made and can be personalized with information you provide.
How Stitched works:
1) You can customize any of our quilt designs or order the default design. Your customization can be as simple as changing out the text, or as complete as changing the color of every fabric in the whole design - it's completely up to you, so you can get exactly the quilt you want.
2) Your quilt design is digitally printed using state of the art digital textile printer on their color-fast cotton poplin fabric.
3) U.S.-based quilters will machine quilt your design using Hobbs batting (the soft stuff in the middle of quilts), and super soft Cuddle minky fabric on the back of the quilt. (Minky has been called one of the "softest fabrics in the world").

We LOVE halloween here at mini style. Probably our favorite time of year! when our friends at Beijos Events presented us with this AMAZING Halloween Beach Bash they put together, we just knew we had to share it with our readers. From adorable costumes from Pottery Barn Kids to a ridiculously gorgeous table top and balloon installation from Wild Child Party, these kiddos had a wonderful time playing on the beach and eating some yummy food. We love the red dinosaur costume and that cake from Colette's Catering is just as cute as can be!

Is there anything more adorable than a precious babe wrapped up sweetly in a moses basket? We think not! Moses baskets are perfect for newborns in the first few years, because they are portable and lightweight and as babies’ beds, they are smaller enough so that you can carry it to anywhere or from one room to another. We love these bright colored baskets from Australian based Zarpar Bebe so much! In those precious and all important first few months, it is comforting to have your baby close and equally babies love the “cocooned” feeling that these baskets are designed to provide. It also makes middle of the night feedings much easier as many parents choose to keep the basket close to their own bed. They are the perfect size for your precious little people and a gorgeous and unique alternative to the basic bassinet.
Zarpar carries ethically crafted treasures for you and your little ones. From these amazingly beautiful moses baskets to gorgeous keepsake blankets, you're bound to find something you love from this cute little shop!

We are so excited to share these ridiculously adorable GripStart Leggings™ by ModaBaby with you today on mini style. Creator Katherine Hanson designed the leggings out of a desire to make simple, high-quality clothes that provide practical solutions for some of the challenges babyhood presents. When her son was exploring his surroundings, which most often included hardwood floors, all of the pants were quickly worn out with frequent holes in the knees. These unique, first of their kind pants help soon-to-be and newly mobile infants and toddlers have a better grip on all kinds of surfaces. With gripper fabric placed on the knee and seat area of the pants, these pants help to ensure that those little legs and bums stay right where babies intend them to be and assists in preventing slips and falls.
Stylish AND practical-everything we look for and love when shopping for our babes! Bonus- the simple but sweet design makes it so easy to match these leggings with almost anything in your little ones wardrobe.
GripStart Leggings™ by ModaBaby is generously offering 10% off to MiniStyle followers, with code "ModaLovesMini". Shop the collection here.

Anyone living in California knows that year round trips to the beach with your little ones in tow are an absolute must. There are sandcastles to build, tide pools to discover and sunsets to watch! When we came across the adorable Beachwood Baby, we just knew we had to share this amazing little shop with our readers. When Beachwood Baby's founder was left unhappy with the types of baby carriers she was finding, she decided to create her own. She wanted a hands free way to protect and comfort her baby. Made from a single layer of 60% cotton & 40% linen, the linen blend keeps your babies body cool in hot weather and warm in the winter. The sling is adjustable, and can carry your babies up until they're toddlers. We love this one worn here in our photos.
In addition to Beachwood Baby's gorgeous slings, they also have a wonderful little online marketplace carrying some of our favorite items like these turkish towel robes and classic Avarcas. The robes are perfect for cozying up your little ones after a long day at the beach or after a nice warm bath!
