Macbook Pro 13″ when my 5 year old Lenovo laptop gave up, I knew I need something that will last many years and that’s why I invested to Macbook Pro 13 inch and I am seriously having a great time with it. There’s a bit of a learning curve because I was used to Windows but the quality is worth every penny.
Canon EOS Rebel is personally owned by Ben (my co-founder) and we use it every single time for taking photos for this blog or even travelling.The quality is top notch and it’s easy to use even if you’re not a camera-type-of-person. So if you have a budget go buy this one it’s a good investment.
iPhone SE don’t have the budget to get a new camera? Use your smartphone! This one is what I personally owned and I love it. It takes great pictures, it’s fast and very handy.

I’ve also learned from this book that there is really Science behind our actions and how our brains work.
