First, I’m so happy to make this post because I’m giving away a Lenovo YOGA 3 Pro Laptop (worth 1,499.99) to one of my readers. Please make sure to enter because I know you’ll love it as much as I do! Now keep reading….
There’s a photo of me taken once. I’m at a party, dressed like Hello Kitty sitting on a couch. Sitting on my lap isn’t a drink, it’s a laptop. I’m on a laptop at a party dressed like Hello Kitty. If we had some cats sprawled out on my lap too it would be the perfect description of my life.
My laptop is one of my best friends, I can’t live without it. It goes to work with me, it travels with me on flights, it goes to bed with me, it helps me in the kitchen, it inspires me, it lets me create films and animations and it lets me communicate with you guys on Brooklyn Farm Girl. It’s the perfect fit for my artist + blogger + cat mama lifestyle.
Are you guys ready to meet my BFF? Ok, here she is (yes, it’s a girl). Her name is Computer! She enjoys tea and cats too. Of course my beloved Essy is on my desktop photo. 🙂
Shes’s quite sophisticated with her modern hinge. The hinge was inspired by a watch, and features 813 hand-assembled pieces of aluminum and steel.
And the keyboard is soft, quiet and feels nice on fingers and paws. Plus, I love the cushioning that surrounds it, perfect for resting your hands.
Why I love my Lenovo YOGA 3 Pro is because it transitions to help me on so many levels everyday. This is a laptop that I can throw in my bag to take to the studio. There I’ll cut together videos, Skype with clients and write endless emails. Then I’m able to take it home, load up notepad and create a new recipe. From there I’ll use it to upload my recipe photos, log into to WordPress and create the post. It’s also amazing for entertainment with the flip-and-fold design. I’ll often take a moment out of the afternoon to watch the next big cat video online while drinking a cup of tea. In bed I can watch NBA TV or The Good Wife until I fall asleep.
So let’s see a average day that I spend with my BFF.
First of all, I love how it syncs to other computers. That means I can copy my settings from another Windows computer. When setting up my Yoga Pro 3 this saved me so much time as I was able to import my settings directly over.
When I get to the studio, Matthew and I first look at our board of ideas and jobs. When I took this picture we were working on a video for Diesel and making animated gifs for the Grammys.
After we decide what the day plan is, then I’ll start checking email. In the morning I am usually responding to emails that come in from Europe a few hours earlier.
Then I’ll jump on a video call if we need to hash out any details of a project we’re shooting or editing.
The laptop has plenty of USB ports (two USB 3.0, one USB 2.0) , a Micro HDMI port and a SD card reader built in. I need lots of USB ports so I’m glad this one comes equipped. The laptop’s yellow USB 2.0 port also doubles as its power connector.
The laptop comes in Clementine orange, brushed gold, and light silver. You know I had to get the colorful one. :D)
One of the problems I’ve always had with laptops is weight. I don’t want something that weighs alot as I’ll be lugging it around the city. I also want to be able to grab it one hand so I can easily move around the space. If I need to look at the 3D printer I can quickly carry it across the room and continue working.
Doesn’t it look so pretty in a bag too? Even though it’s Winter these colors make me think Spring!
After I finish up work there, I’ll talk a walk home to start working on blog posts that are due and recipes that need to be made. Any recipe creators out there know that a laptop can get messy (hello flour, melted chocolate and mushed banana) and this one holds up to it. I might not win the award for cleanest laptop, but I’ve show it alot of delicious love.
When creating a recipe, I’ll keep the notepad program open to quickly jot down changes I’m making in a recipe, or something that I might forget when I go to write the full recipe out.
While the brownies are in the oven, I’ll sit down with the cats. We work long hours so I always try to multi-task. Even if I’m following up on some emails, I call the cats over.
Hope you liked a glimpse into my day and meeting my BFF. Is your laptop your best friend too? What’s a average day like in your life?
Are you guys ready for this, it’s time!
