Happy Tech featuring Intel // September 2015
These past few months have been a bit of a wobble in terms of putting thoughts of what I want into tangible action. It's pretty scary and I think waaaaay too much. Some of you may have similar experiences! I talk myself out of a lot of things, have inner fears and anxieties, procrastinate, or just have thoughts that I'll just wait until the time is right. Well, it doesn't have to be a huge jump, but let's use this month as a stepping stone towards putting our thoughts into action and heading in the direction of our dreams, how about it?!
Audrey and I created this month's wallpaper as a motivation for ourselves and for you!
What are some steps you can take this month to get yourself motivated and starting the step towards your dreams?

For this month's wallpaper, I'm also teaming up with Intel. I admit that I've been a MacBooker for the past...oh, omg years and years, but I was pleasantly surprised at the Intel Lenovo Yoga 3! Seriously cool. I love the touch- and swipe-screen and how you can easily switch (a la yoga bend!) between a tablet and laptop mode.
The new Windows 10 is not too shabby either. It's clean and easy to understand (I don't say that lightly). I spent a good few hours familiarizing myself with the wealth of new features. You have access to "virtual desktops" which is super convenient because I usually have a lot of programs and tabs open on a single computer. In short: it's like having separate monitors with different work spaces but all on one laptop/tablet. You also have Cortana, a virtual assistant much like Apple's Siri. I also admit that I do love the interface of the start screen with all the apps visually right at your fingertips (literally)! The Lenovo Yoga 3 weighs about the same as my MacBook Air, but of course, I love the convenience of the quick tablet-if-needed feature or screen-up-front for better movie viewing. All in all, I give it two thumbs up!
What do you think of the Intel 2in1 Lenovo Yoga 3?
