Did You Know: There’s a National Day of Unplugging, designed to help hyper-connected people of all backgrounds to embrace the ancient ritual of a day of rest.
This Spring, Digital Sisterhood Network’s Leadership, Lifestyle, and Living Well Initiative has been inspired by Spelman College’s Wellness Revolution to relaunch the Digital Sisterhood Unplugged Weekends Initiative (#DSUnplugged) to encourage women to slow down and take a break from their digital lives and electronic devices once a month. The break could be 30 minutes, an hour, a half-day, a full day, or an entire weekend. It’s up to each woman to choose and commit to a timeframe that works best for her. If you’d like to join our 2013 #DSUnplugged Weekends, check out the schedule and use the #DSUnplugged hashtag to share your plans, comments, and questions on their Facebook and Twitter pages.

What are your plans this weekend and how do you plan to unplug, unwind and enjoy?
You may or may not not be the “techy type”, however you probably have several girlfriends who are. Had it not been for my own gadget girlfriends, I wouldn’t have the slightest interest in the latest and greatest technology. I decided to go on a search of my own, just to see what could possibly peak my interest for my or my gadget girlfriends’ Christmas lists. Here are a few things that I found worth sharing.
How much FUN is this toaster?! While getting your morning coffee/tea ready, you no longer have to wonder if your bread is on the proper setting or browning to your likening. From almost any angle in your kitchen, you will be able to see your toast’s transformation. No more burned toast and breakfast just became even more exciting!
You really don’t have to be into gadgets much to enjoy this timepiece. Perfect for your bedside, and the perfect size for stocking stuffing!
If you still have the iPhone 4/4s, don’t fret, many of us still do! This cell phone case is a must-have accessory that will leave you feeling like you just upgraded phones. The case resembles a small journal and provides excellent protection from elements and the occasions that your phone slides from your hand (Even if you never lose a grip on your iPhone, like myself, this case is swanky!)
Here’s the perfect mouse for those of us on the go more than we are home, known as the Arc Mouse. After realizing how much this would simplify life on the go, I had to share this with you! The entire mouse takes the shape of your leg, preventing it from sliding to the floor and makes for a no-hassle, easily-mobile work space.
You don’t have to be a “gadget guru” to enjoy these latest technologies. They are perfect for a self-upgrade, or for stocking stuffers for the crew. Whatever your gadget attraction, there is truly something for everyone!
Tell us some of the latest gadgets that you found and/or favor below… and stay tuned for more gadget updates from the team!
