I may only be in my twenties but I find it hard to keep track of all the latest ‘iTrends’: iPods, iPhones, iPads, iMacs and now even an iPad Mini. For quite some time I have avoided joining the iClub but earlier this year hip daddy surprised me with an iPad and I have to admit that it is very handy and I use it a lot. The only thing I didn’t like was having to hold it up the whole time while using it, until I disovered the iCrib that is.

The iCrib by Life! Live It Up is a soft yet supportive mini-bean bag for iPads, if you have ever tried a real bean bag you can imagine how handy and convenient the iCrib is. You just put it down on your lap, your desk or coffee table and position the iPad in it so you get the best view and that’s it! No clicking things in or adjusting clips and straps, just quick and easy which is perfect for busy people like me.

If you have little ones they have probably taken an interest in the iPad too, kids just love watching movies on it or playing some cool child friendly apps. I don’t think you can avoid the sticky fingerprints but the iCrib does help them to keep it steady and reduces the risk of accidents. Instead of clumsy kids holding the iPad while they watch or play the iCrib can do the holding for you. The iCrib ($29.95) is available in different colours/patterns/materials and comes pre-filled with beans.

With the holidays coming up your iPad is in for a bit of a workout, tablets are perfect for some light (or heavy) entertainment while relaxing in the garden, at the beach or near the pool. Don’t let your holiday be spoilt by a damaged or even broken iPad due to water, sand or dirt! For just $9.95 you can order the Dryz Protector, a simple but effective way to keep your digital devices safe and clean while out and about.

If there is a road trip or lots of car travel on your agenda these holidays you might want to check out one of the latest Life! Live It Up accessories for your iPad, the eViewer ($29.95). I think they designed these specifically to keep parents from going insane during car trips! Instead of buying a dedicated DVD player for in the car you can just use your iPad to pop on a movie. The elastic straps are easy to fit on most head rests and your iPad can be used horizontally or vertically.

Eeni Meeni Miini Moh – Autumn/Winter 2012

Feb 092012
 

It seems like only yesterday that I was browsing the fantastic Eeni Meeni Miini Moh Summer sale, I was so disappointed to miss out on some of the gorgeous styles but I know it was my own fault. I should have known by now that the Eeni Meeni Miini Moh clothing is always very popular and you have to grab your favourite pieces the minute you lay eyes on them. If you haven’t already spotted the new Autumn/Winter collection take a look at the pieces all the fashion savvy mums are lining up for:

The first thing you’ll notice when checking out the new range is the stunning rhubarb red colour used for both boys and girl, it definitely is THE colour of the season. I can already see my oldest two wearing these two outfits, cool stripes for my boy and the most gorgeous dress for my big girl. With a bit of imagination the dress seems to have come straight from one of my favourite childhood tv series, can you guess which one it is?

It might be a tight squeeze but my 18-month old would look just adorable in this Babydoll Dress ($54.95, 000-2) from the Enfant range, there are three divine colours to choose from but I would pick the rhubarb version so she would match well with her siblings. To really complete the look you can add the matching ruffled leggings ($36.95, 000-2), perfect for keeping those little legs warm on chilly days.

This year marks 10 years since the start of Eeni Meeni Miini Moh and by now many mums will recognise the signature prints and descriptions, of course you can expect some of these famous prints in the Autumn/Winter boys range too. There is plenty of subject choices: transportation, travel and animals. Get your little man this big brown bear t-shirt ($44.95, 0-5) and he’ll be able to say it in French in no time!

One thing that has changed since the start of Eeni Meeni Miini Moh is the size range, because as of last year the bigger kids can shop here too for the dedicated e3-M range with sizes going up to size 14. With cool, stylish, age appropriate designs the e3-M label has taken a solid place in the fashion market for older kids, getting the tick of approval from both fussy tweens/teens and mums.
