I was sent two lovely iPad 2 covers to review. I borrow my hubby’s iPad which is in a boring black cover. I loved how these zinged it up! These ipad 2 covers are from be-ez.com and they have also given me 2 of the same to give a way.

Tan is a useful colour, it works with any season wardrobe and never go out of style, be-ez brings “Tan lines” for your iPad 2 (£20).It’s made in soft, shape-memory material jersey fabric with a fleece inner with a shiny nickel zipper. Its made from  low  polyurethane technology. I loved how classy and classic this looked.

If you would like to win one please write TAN in your commment below.

next I reviewed the Morea Green Ipad 2 cover (rrp £26)

Made from the same materials and just as classy as the LA robe tan this is a very cute ipad cover.

If you want this one just tell me green in your comments.

 So very simple entry just tell me which one you liked best. A winner will be picked at random from each selection and win the cover they chose.
