My Macbook came last week but I refrained from blogging about it too much until all of my side-investment pieces came in too (aka the decals and the accessories). I have wanted a Macbook forever, but decided to get one before I started graduate school. However, to be honest, I wish that I had gotten my Macbook sooner because this would have been absolutely phenomenal to have during undergrad.
My younger brother actually formatted and upgraded it before I got my hands on it, as a favor, so I got a little surprise when it finally arrived at my door….
That’s my brother for you.
As I learned from my iPad review, I’m not very good at writing about technology, so I will leave it to the experts. However, if you decide to get one, it is well worth the money. I use both my iPad and my Macbook, but for different reasons and processes. I have been thinking of writing a post about what I use each for (when it comes to life and blogging), so be sure to tell me if you’re interested in that.
I thoroughly researched what investments I would need to make for my Macbook, and went forth to Amazon to find everything that I needed. I already knew what accessories/personalizations I knew I wanted to make. Although I ordered my laptop skin/decal off of the internet, pretty much everything else is from Amazon.
A laptop case/decal/cover
I knew that I wanted to personalize my Macbook and the first stop for that was to get a laptop decal or cover for my Macbook. I wanted something cute and sassy and it only took one quick Google search for me to find the floral printed decals that I purchased for my Macbook.
It is so pretty and unique and I love how it adds a lot of personality to my Macbook. Macbooks are a dime a dozen, and arguably one of the most popular laptops out there, so it’s always nice to add a personal touch and stand out a little! Everyone always compliments me on my floral printed decal, even though I have only had my Macbook for a short while.
A laptop sleeve (and charger pouch!)
I was that girl that would just carry her laptop freely and walk around the dorms, in undergrad. I am admittedly clumsy, and really picky about my Macbook staying clean, so I decided to purchase a laptop sleeve. I always cringe when people put their exposed and bare laptops into backpacks, and that makes them so susceptible to damage and dents! So, a sleeve was definitely the way to go!
My sleeve came with a matching pouch for my Macbook charger, and I am so glad it did! It’s a pretty quatrefold in this festive lime green-cream combo that mis-matches with my Macbook in the perfect way. The inside is lined with this soft, fluffy grey fabric that keeps my Macbook cushioned and secure. It’s a pretty canvas fabric on the outside that is not only fashionable, but durable and functional.
A keyboard cover
Truth is, I didn’t even know my decal would come with a matching keyboard cover. So, I bought one on Amazon that I’m now returning because all the letters rubbed off (it was a light spring green). I ended up using the decal-package keyboard cover, and personally stuck every key’s sticker on the keyboard cover.
I am notorious for getting keyboards messy, so I knew I wanted a keyboard cover to protect my keyboard from messes, finger oils, or dirt! They keep your keyboards looking new and clean!
I got these cute hot pink headphones because they matched the flowers on my Macbook. I feel like that’s pretty self-explanatory!
A cute wallpaper
Funny story about this wallpaper. I chose this image because I thought it was cute and worked with the whole pink/green theme I have going on. I was looking at it and told Will how the background looked so familiar….You guys….what does that remind you of?
I think I did a pretty damn good job of customizing and personalizing my MacBook! It definitely feels “mine” now and I love how unique it looks now!
“You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep spring from coming.”
Do you guys like personalizing your technology? Or do you your devices as-is?
