I’ve loved this week because it’s the first one in a month or two where I haven’t been travelling. I’ve felt more balanced, had more time with my family and more time with the office. Everyone wins.
Our new writer, Lucinda Ormonde started yesterday and I have no doubt that at some stage soon she will stop looking terrified. There really is a lot to take in about how Mamamia works. A bit like putting a firehose into your mouth and turning it on.
We’re really looking forward to her being here and contributing even more to the site.
The fashion moment
A few weeks ago I mentioned I wasn’t sure about the coloured denim thing. May I just say that I have now most definitely decided. Coloured denim is rocking our world at the moment. Here is Lana in her new Sportsgirl “Abbie” pink jeans. I have the same pair in aqua and a different style in coral. I also own purple Sass & Bide jeans which I live in. And some bright (almost fluro) orange Sass & Bide cords.
I’m finding it a great way to bridge from winter black blahs to Spring before it gets too hot and you don’t want to be wearing jeans anymore. Have you gone there yet?
I first saw this at my hairdresser and I immediately jumped online to buy one for my ipad.
It’s a wireless bluetooth keyboard for your ipad that also doubles as a case and a stand. You can put your ipad in it vertically or horizontally and it’s changed the whole way I use my ipad (in that I use it much more now and for many more things – like writing as well as browsing). I’m constantly asked about it whenever I use it in public.
Even when I went into the Apple store with it one time, all the blue people gathered around me in wonderment, oooh-ing and aaaaahh-ing. This was possibly the geek highlight of my life. Telling the clever blue people something about technology that they didn’t yet know.
The cost US$99 plus shipping which is about another $30. Clever.
