New at MiniStyle

The Star pad is a wonderful new cardboard house for kids. With its clever design and magical appearance, it can be transformed into anything using paints, crayons, textas, cutouts, even wallpaper!
Children can spend hours of fun decorating and playing in this play house. It's even big enough to set up a small set of tables & chairs inside.

Dimensions~ 119cm H x 80cm W x 80cm D

I'm actually looking forward to spending some creative time with my kids and their Star Pad.
Available online now at MiniStyle at a great price of $49.95. Great gift idea for those kids that have everything!!

Hannah Montana Ban

Cindy Crawford has banned her mini me daughter watching Hannah Montanna. Apparently she believes that Kaya 7, will become "sassy" if she starts watching the Disney Show.
Cindy says " I love Hannah Montana, but my daughter learns to be sassy from that show. "I'll say to her, 'I don't let anyone talk to me like that. I 'll certainly not take it from a 7 yr old in my own house.' " (showbiz spy)
Many mothers I know have similar views about Miley Cyrus' show. My daughter only watches in small doses. Does anyone else ban their kids from this show?

Golden Globe Awards

Well here is Miley Cyrus (aka Hannah Montana) with her parents at the Golden Globe Awards...We can see where she gets her good looks from.  

Gwyneth power

Gwyneth Paltrow has launched her very own lifestyle website called Here is how she describes her site : " is a collection of experiences of what makes life good. My life is good because I am not passive about it. I want to nourish what is real & I want to do it without wasting time. I love to travel, to cook, to eat, to take care of my body & mind, to work hard. I love being a mother, who has to overcome bad qualities to be a good mother. I love being in spaces that are clean & nice. 
Make your life good. Invest in what's real. Cook a meal for someone you love. Pause before reacting. Clean out your space. Read something beautiful. Treat yourself to something. Go to a city you've never been to. Learn something new. Don't be lazy. Workout & stick with it. GOOP. Make it great!!"

Wow, well I'm inspired!! I'm off to check out her website at

Mini celebrity doubles

Celebrity impersonators are a dime a dozen. This fresh approach to celebrity doubles is as funny as it is cute. These mini-me versions of Beyonce & Jay Z, Gwen Stefani, Puff Daddy & Missy Elliot bear a remarkable likeness to their pop idols.  Mini Beyonce is my favourite...she is gorgeous!

Loving this...

Beijing kids are the latest to be treated to some western style indulgence with Kids Republic, a children's bookstore that transports it‚ pint sized customers into a delightful fairytale world full of color and fantasy complete with massive story telling screens and play areas. It's haven for little imaginations in the heart of one of the biggest cities in the world. 
Incorporating the core design elements of a kid's playground, these slipperyslide-inspired-shelves house books in an incredibly fun way. Breaking from the traditional table and chair reading areas, padded L shaped reading stools are used and enjoyed by tiny readers. Dull lighting is replaced by snakelike fittings that radiate a variety of colors whilst providing adequate light to read with. Courtesy of coolhunter
