NY Fashion Week: Girl’s Best Friend Diary, Day 7 — iPad Mini

It goes without saying that there's no living without my iPhone and my Mophie Powerstation Battery Charger (a backup battery that works for iPad, iPhone, iPod touch…everything!), but this season, a new item has been added to my list of electronic best friends: the iPad Mini.

My laptop is heavy — so heavy, in fact, that I sometimes worry that it may rip my handbag when I'm lugging it around. This season, having a Mini makes life infinitely easier. The nifty gadget is so lightweight that when I got the box, I had a hard time believing there was more than a cable inside it. It's also nearly all screen, so even though it's small, it does the job of a computer-on-the-go very well. Since I'm already an iPhone user and very comfortable with touch screen, it makes it super easy for me to upload show write-ups, take notes, email myself — and it has Siri.

With blogging, getting information to your readers as quickly as possible is key, so having the Mini handy to just whip out in a pinch has been incredibly useful. I also always have a serious fear of missing out and the gadget makes it easy to stay up-to-date with all social media to see what's going on at shows and events I wasn't able to make.
