Knicker elastic and other eBay treasures

Tweet- Sponsored post - There are lots of cool things you want on eBay. But it’s also a treasure trove for all those things you didn’t even know you wanted. Vintage 1940s knicker elastic. A mint condition Charles and Diana jigsaw. A gently used gerbilarium. Before I started the eBay Challenge with several other bloggers, I knew the site was a place where you could pick up designer labels and electronics...

TweetFor me, Christmas shopping really begins the day after Thanksgiving (Nov 24) – the time in America during which every single sentient being with a wallet and a credit card descends on the shops. Yesterday I put together my Christmas list. Today I actually went to the shops with the entire family (emphasis mine) and bought things for under the tree.

Back then you could ape that greaseball your older sister dated by rolling up the pack in the bicep of your t-shirt, or by tucking a single behind your...

Should you buy an iPad for your kids?

TweetThe burning question we had on holiday this year had nothing to do with sunscreen. It was whether we should invest in an iPad. Or rather, should we invest in an iPad now or wait until there’s 3G here in the UK or wait until they improve the battery life or perhaps even wait until they come in different colours.

Would you give your baby this bottle?

TweetWhat – you might ask – qualifies the drummer from one of the greatest hair bands of all time to design baby clothes and accessories? Could it be his ex-wife who also happens to be Eva Herzigova? Could it be all that creative juice and sometimes creative powder sloshing around on back of the bus while touring? Whatever, dude. Tico Torres, drummer for Bon Jovi, has a line of children’s products...
