School has begun and we’re beginning to settle into a routine. As a celebration for the beginning of a new school year I’ve teamed up with Stacey from This Lil Piglet and Stacie from Simply Stacie to bring you the iPad Mini Back To School Giveaway.
Why give away an iPad Mini to celebrate back to school? Well why not! I know someone will be thrilled to have this beautiful device, perhaps to steal a few minutes of their own to watch a movie on or surf the web when nobody in the family is vying for their attention.
The iPad mini is a thinner, lighter, cheaper variant of the iPad as we know it, with a smaller screen and form factor that makes it even more portable than its larger sibling. Thanks to its 4:3 aspect ratio, the iPad mini is actually superior to 7-inch tablets with a wide ratio. That is due to the more surface area available on the device’s screen, which results in a richer web browsing experience
Win an iPad Mini
We’ve invited some fabulous bloggers in and we’ve decided to giveaway 1 16GB iPad Mini valued at $329. to one very lucky reader in either the US or Canada. You must be 18+ to enter, Winner will be drawn on October 5th and have 48 hours to respond.
I’m so excited, good luck!
I would love to win this because I don’t have a device like this. They are very handy and small that you can bring them everywhere with you.

I’m having trouble subscribing to the blogs with the Mad Mimi links.
I would really love to win this contest because I could really use this for school. I am without a personal computer, even though I take classes online (and let me tell you that isn’t easy haha).
Also, I feel like an iPad mini would help me with my passion; filmmaking. I know there are lots of great filmmaking apps (like Slates, light monitors, call sheet apps etc.) on the Apple market that I’ve used on friends’ devices and they make all the difference!
Thank you for this opportunity .
I would like one to be able to help me with my essays and other classes. I could also use it even in college.
