Makeshift Society Tablet Test Drive

Coworking space Makeshift Society put out a call for members to volunteer for the opportunity to test-drive an Intel tablet and blog/tweet about it for six weeks .I think I was the only person to say "yes", but as you can see below, the tablet delivered to my hands was pretty nifty!

It's a Thinkpad 2 by Lenovo, powered by Intel #inteltablets with a Windows 8 operating system (as opposed to Android). My parents just got a new desktop computer with Windows 8 and I knew they were having problems using the new interface, so I have a little trepidation about using it. I choose the Windows tablet because I use a PC, but it is a PC with old Windows 7. I'm hoping the tablet/Apple Ipad format of the tablet will make more sense with Windows 8, but we'll see!

It's a pretty machine with nice accessories (carrying case and bluetooth keyboard). The machine is light and with the carrying case, the whole setup is pretty compact. I hear that the battery life is good -- we'll see! Excited to start playing with it.

More to come!

Jewelry Seen on The Crazy Ones - Sarah Michelle Gellar

It was so exciting to hear that Sarah Michelle Gellar and Robin Williams were going to be back on TV on a David E. Kelly comedy, The Crazy Ones! What? SMG (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) doing comedy? Turns out... it's a great little show, sweet and full of Robin Williams zaniness. I loved a recent episode where Sydney (Sarah Michelle Gellar) planted a smooch on Andrew (Hamish Linkleter) - it was an unexpected twist, I would have thought they were going to pair Sydney with Zach (the smarmy handsome go-getter).

I have a history with Sarah Michelle Gellar TV shows, too. Having jewelry on Buffy started my business! It's such a thrill that several years later I have my work again being used for a show she stars in. Jewelry seen on The Crazy Ones so far:

Sydney wears my Rosy Reds earrings and Dome Ring on the episode "Bad Dad".

Sydney (Sarah Michelle Gellar) wears a variety of colorful earrings, these are my Rosy Reds Earrings

In episode "Breakfast Burrito Club", Sydney wears my Black Diamond Threader earrings for the whole show. UPDATE - this style is now sold out, but has been updated with Black Spinel for the same look!

Sydney (Sarah Michelle Gellar) earrings on The Crazy Ones

In the Crazy Ones episode "Outbreak", neurotic Sydney tries to avoid catching the flu that is going around the office, while trying to send selfies to her new beau. She's also wearing my Crystal Elegance Earrings and Turquoise Pendant Necklace (turned inside out).

I'm looking forward to seeing more fabulous fashion and hopefully some more Peggy Li Creations jewelry to appear on the show. See all jewelry seen on TV on my website.
