There is so much coming up over the next couple of weeks in Newcastle we feel like we'd love to highlight it because often as Mums we find ourselves doing the 'oh did I miss that'? So here goes this weekend is the inaugural Baby Collective Expo at NEX on Sunday, NHM's Bec Tansey and Mel Sargeant are MCing and we'll be giving away a luxe Babymoon to the Novotel Newcastle Beach. Are your little ones a bit obsessed with Hey Duggee? Woof Woof, they'll get to meet him at 12PM on the Main Stage. After you finish at the Baby Collective Expo head to the Five Senses Twilight Market at Lambton Park from 4pm enjoy fine wine, awesome live music, loads of entertainment for the kids and a stack of stalls supporting the Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children in the Hunter. 

Living Smart Festival is on at Speers Point from 8-2pm on Saturday the 22nd of September. It's Lake Macquarie's largest sustainability event. You can meet The Chaser and War on Waste's Craig Reucassel and partake in a native plant giveaway and a raid my wardrobe fashion event.  Also on the 21-23rd of September it's Newcastle China Week. Highlights here include the Hawker Night Food Market in Gregson Park Hamilton from 4-9pm stacks of food trucks will be there along with illuminated sights and a DJ.
