A Modern Mom Must-Have (Laptop Tablet Giveaway!)

Before I became a mother, I had one job. That job was working as a registered nurse in an acute care setting. I juggled very few things during that time- mostly striking a balance between long hours at the hospital and keeping a happy house and husband as a newlywed. Soon enough, the fog of newlywed-ed bliss cleared and with career shifts came major life changes such as a move south and a baby on the way. It wasn't long before I became a mother and a stay-at-home one at that!

As we began to settle ourselves down with deeper roots, I tested the work-from-home waters. In addition to being a brand new mother, I also became much more dedicated toward engaging brands and businesses within my blog. Over the last several years, not only did my blog become a working passion of mine but I also launched a photography business (in addition to adding two more babies to the mix!) 

Our life looks much, much different now than it did just five years ago and if you ever mentioned that I would not only be a mom of three boys but also the owner of not one but two businesses, I would have laughed and said, "not a chance!"

"Never say never," am I right?

I love every single second of our crazy busy days and I wouldn't trade them for the world. As a mom of three and business owner, it's been a difficult road to navigate. Sure there are contracts and deadlines to be met but at the same time, my family has been and always will be my number one priority. I've spent many long nights burning the candle at both ends, learning not only how to run a business from my home but also how to do so successfully and without detriment to my family. It hasn't always been easy and I'm sure I've failed both my family and a client on more than one occasion but in every instance, there's been a lesson learned and growth as both a mom and business owner.

As a mom and business owner, I'm always on the hunt for technology that allows me to transition seamlessly between roles. Whether I'm in Kindergarten prep-mode scouring Pinterest for readiness activities, in the pediatrician's office for a unforeseen fever, on the road doing some hands-on research for a brand or sitting down with a freshly swaddled newborn and her family in my at-home studio, I need to not only be accessible but also access email, apps and the Internet in a way that benefits myself, my family and my business.

The Lenovo YOGA 3 Pro is a tablet laptop mash-up that in layman's terms is "simply freaking amazing." It's ultra-thin, incredibly lightweight and boasts an incredible 6-hinge design that allows it to fold back a complete 360 degrees.





Yes, you read that correctly! The Lenovo YOGA 3 Pro can be used as a traditional clam shell laptop but with a swift fold of the screen, becomes tented and furthermore lays completely flat. I can't lie, this was an enhancement that definitely took some getting used to but an enhancement that I absolutely love and appreciate once I got over the "oh my god it's going to snap and break" feeling. 

The high resolution 13" screen is crisp and clean, great for streaming videos (in the waiting room of the pediatrician's office) or browsing a client's gallery of inspiration during a consultation.





I imagine this machine operates  similarly to the female brain- as it rises to the challenge of multitasking with a capital "M." The machine outdoes itself while running multiple browsers and streaming music while I simultaneously write and edit documents in MS Offic (or cook dinner).

The Lenovo YOGA 3 Pro transitions quickly and easily between Business Mom mode and Mom of 3 mode. Whether I'm at the table answering emails during nap time, standing at the oven for an impromptu cookie baking session or on the go chauffeuring three small boys from school to story time at the library and beyond, the YOGA 3 Pro makes me a better mom AND business mom.

Lightweight, convenient and easy to carry/slip into a diaper bag, the Lenovo YOGA 3 Pro is a welcome addition to our crazy, beautiful and busy family. 



Want to win your OWN Lenovo YOGA 3 Pro? Entry is easy. Please be sure to read terms and conditions within the Rafflecopter widget below or visit this link. For more information on Lenovo, visit this link.
