3 Reasons to Unplug Today

SkinnyGirl_Header_Unplug
Take a look around you. How many screens can you count? A computer? Check. Phone? Check. TV? Probably. While every lady has multitasking down to a fine science, sometimes you just need to unplug. It can seem daunting to go off the grid but stronger relationships and increased happiness are well worth it. Not convinced? Check out the best reasons to have a digital detox below:

1. Less FaceTime, more face time

While texts and Snapchats are great for staying in touch with your friends, they’re no substitute for the real thing. Instead of Instagramming your latest cocktail, why not bring your friends to try it for themselves? The sad fact about technology is that while it brings us closer, it can also put up walls.

2. Get to know the real you

From the moment you switch off the alarm on your phone to the ebook you read before bed, we seldom have a moment away from our gadgets. The problem with our constant connectivity is that there’s a real value to being alone with our thoughts. Every second to yourself can be a moment for self-reflection and innovation. Why do you think your best ideas come to you in the shower?

3. Attention spans longer than Vine videos

As we continue to use technology, our attention span gets shorter and shorter. It’s easy to jump from article to article just checking headlines while peeking on social media, but you’re missing out on learning more. By taking a little break, you can remind yourself how focusing in on one thing at a time increases your attention span.

Cutting the chord is a tricky proposition for anyone, but the results are well worth it. Even if it’s just for a day, a little “you time” and a real life experience with your friends does a girl good. Plus, all those selfies will still be waiting for you tomorrow.

Skinnygirl Packing Tips

PackingTips
There’s nothing more exciting than the sound of unzipping an empty suitcase and filling it with gear for adventures-in-the-making, but any traveler knows that a poor packing job — from overstuffing luggage to forgetting the necessities — can wreak major havoc on your vacation. Whether your final destination entails blue water swimming or blue diamond skiing, here are 10 tips to help you travel in style.

1. Make a List
Before packing, make a list of necessary items based on your trip’s duration, weather, and activities. Be modest in the amount of items that can be recycled during a vacation — like shoes and jeans — while you should go heavy on daily rotating clothing, such as tops and socks.

2. Roll With It
Rolling clothing into compact bundles not only helps to create more suitcase space — it decreases pesky creases that result from the go-to fold.

3. Travel-Sized Savvy
Between its easy transport, fee-free policy and no-fuss access, it’s no wonder carry-on baggage is the experienced traveler’s trick. Travel in flavor with your perfectly on-the-go Skinnygirl Water Enhancers.

4. Power to the Packer
You never know what inspiration will strike in transit, so always be prepared by fully charging up your electronics pre-journey to avoid any low battery warning signs.

5. Skip the Hair Tools
Almost every hotel these days will stock a decent hair dryer, so leave yours behind to make room for another mandatory pair of shoes — whether it’s sneakers or pumps.

6. Consider your City
If you’re wondering about what toiletries to pack, think about your destination and whether or not you’ll need to pack certain toiletries. You may be set if you’re staying at an accommodating hotel or under the roof of a friend or relative, whereas a camping trip might require some more suitcase space.

7. (Double) Check It
No one can remember it all, all of the time! Avoid any last-minute forgetful moments by running through your packing list one more time — aloud. Sure, it might seem silly and over-the-top, but trust us. You’ll be happy you did.

Skinnygirl Spring Trends

Skinnygirl-SpringTrends
Designers and their runways have helped guide our fashion do’s and don’ts for years, but what about the other necessities in our lives? Just as our clothing and accessories can benefit from the occasional en vogue expertise, so can the other areas of our daily regimen — right down to the water we drink. Luckily, the new line of Skinnygirl Liquid Water Enhancers packs four different fruit-forward flavors, so we can stay hydrated in style. Here are three of this spring’s biggest fashion trends — and three ways to dress up your water accordingly.

Wild in White
When we can dig deep into our closet to find our whitest pieces, it’s official: spring is here. While the black and white combination is sweeping the runways this year, an all-white look is just as fierce — and versatile — especially when rocking any of the season’s other trends (think crop tops, cut outs and leather). Dare to make your white wardrobe stand out even more with spring’s boldest accessory yet: Skinnygirl Liquid Water Enhancer in White Cherry, a bright and delicious hydration helper.

Over-the-Top Orange
Sound the style alarms: orange is in — and in a big and bold kind of way. Whether you’re rocking the attention-grabbing hue on your lips or your legs (maxi skirt, anyone?), you’re bound to win over street style-savvy crowds while also looking ready for an island hopping vaca. Add a five-calorie dash of Pineapple Coconut Skinnygirl Liquid Water Enhancer to your glass to keep the tropical party going — without the big-time calories that normally come with it.

Bold Blues
Make no mistake about it — there’s nothing sad about the blues that will be turning heads this season. From a range of hues (from navy to cobalt and royal to cyan) and ways to sport them (from clutches and necklaces to eye shadows and nail polishes), Spring 2014 may be your time to shine if you’re a cool-colored fan. Offer your water the same indigo overhaul with a splash of Blueberry Acai Skinnygirl Liquid Water Enhancer.
