My blogging career has been getting more recognition since the beginning of this year, and I'm very much thankful for all the opportunities that have been given to me. In all honesty, it's really tough. It's definitely a "make it" or "break it" industry, but you can't give up and just work as hard (or more) as everybody else. For six weeks, I've been travelling so much (in addition to fashion and press events) that I couldn't keep up with all the editing and writing I had to work on. Glad to have the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 by my side!
I'm incredibly grateful to Veritas Comm for giving me the chance to try and experience the newest Microsoft tablet, which is the Surface Pro 4. I used to be a Windows processor kind of girl, until I finally gave in and switched to Apple products two years ago. I haven't looked back since.. So when I received an email regarding this, I didn't even hesitate on saying yes! Fast forward to meeting with a Microsoft spokesperson (Shoutout to Peter! Such a nice guy), who showed me how to use the device and all the cool things I could do with it. Like customization of the start screen, all the amazing apps, etc..
I thought I only have the device during Toronto Fashion Week. Turned out, they've let me use it for a month. ONE FULL MONTH! I couldn't believe it. Of course, I had to bring it with me during my travels. I've always loved my Macbook Air because it's so light and compact. Guess what.. So is the Surface! And it even feels lighter. I didn't know if I was allowed to take it everywhere, but I took the risk anyway. The first time I brought it out was when I was in New York for a weekend in March. The second time was when I went to Montréal for a week in April, along with my Macbook. I must say, it helped me a lot.
One of my favourite apps was Plumbago. It's pretty much a digital sketchbook. Was so much fun trying it out and practice drawing again. Another app I love is the OneNote. I love how I can install and use it on my iPhone as well. I still enjoy writing on physical notebooks, but by having the OneNote, I can just write digitally! Overall, I had such a great time using the Surface Pro 4, that I felt a little bit of separation anxiety.
