Intel 2 in 1 Dell Inspiron 11 3000 Series Review

As part of the Intel 2 in 1 Smart Squad, I’m testing out an Intel 2 in 1 Dell Inspiron 11 3000 Series tablet/computer. Full disclosure: I’ve never run a Windows 8 PC before and have no idea what I’m doing. It’s interesting and definitely has a very tablet home screen kind of feel to it as well.

I actually expected my Intel 2 in 1 to be smaller. It’s a good size and a good balance between tablet and computer. Would I want to develop software on it for 10 hours/day? Probably not, but it’s the perfect size for travel.

Pretty in Paisley | Epiphany Chocolates Giveaway (closed)

It’s been a bit of a sugary week here on Delayed Missives– and since when have I become a food blogger? First I spoke with the chef behind momofuku milk bar, and today I’m pleased to offer a giveaway sponsored by my favorite truffle makers: Epiphany Chocolates.

Spring in 14th Street Park | Sponsored

BA STAR Smoky Eye Shadow Palette | Sponsored

Disclosure: a sample of the BA STAR Smoky Eye Shadow Palette in Natural was provided to me c/o BA STAR in exchange for a product review.

BA STAR is a performance makeup brand popular with cheerleaders, dancers, and competitors in a variety of fields. They recently released a new eye shadow palette that’s both versatile and affordable at just $8.75. I received the Smoky Eye Shadow Palette in Natural (yes! I love these colors!), which contains three mineral eye shadows and two glitter gels for highlighting. I can’t say that I have a lot of use for the glitter gels these days, but I wish they would have been around when I was younger and still in gymnastics and figure skating. They’re much better than the awful glitters from the 90s that would travel all over my face.
