NYFW Diaries: The HP x Style Coalition Lounge

Fashion week is a crazy, hectic, magical time, and if there's one thing I've learned over the years (this is my sixth season covering, can you believe it?!), you need to take time to rest, refuel and recharge all your tech gear! This season, the HP x Style Coalition lounge at The Empire Hotel was my fashion week oasis, offering bloggers a place to unwind, grab a bite to eat, and indulge in fun things like complimentary manis by Covergirl.

As a blogger ambassador for HP, I got to test out the HP ENVY x2, a powerful and ultra-thin hybrid PC with the advantages of two devices in one: Laptop and tablet. The battery life on my HP ENVY x2 was impressive (never actually ran out) but I'd use the opportunity to recharge, check emails and review the most recent runway shows. The HP ENVY x2's vivid 11.6-inch diagonal HD touch display with ultra-wide viewing angels, 400-nit brightness and IPS technology was perfect for seeing all the details from fashion week while the keyboard made communicating via Twitter and email easy.

Bloggers combine their love of fashion and technology every day, and it's encouraging to have the support of companies like HP that understand this important fusion. Thank you HP & Style Coalition for making my fashion week experience that much richer!
