I Forgot My Phone

When you walk into a restaurant, a movie theatre, or Starbucks how many people have their phones out? Only about 2% don’t. We live in a generation where our iPhone’s trump a one on one conversation with the person sitting right in front of us. Do we care? Maybe when we sit down to really think about it but in the moment.. no. Why? Look around. Everyone else is doing it. You wouldn’t want to look weird and NOT be doing what everyone else is.

We came across a video that disturbed us. It’s titled “I forgot my phone.” Many of you have probably already seen it, but those who haven’t, we’re curious to see your reaction. Does it disgust you as much as it disgusts other people? Is this such the norm that it really doesn’t bother you it’s just someone video recording what you see daily.

We all love social media and being tuned into everything that’s happening AS it’s happening. Don’t let that affect your real-life relationships though. If you are out to lunch with your significant other, friend, or even worse… CHILD. Please just put your phone away. What will you honestly miss within that hour that you cannot go back and look at? NOTHING. Your instagram feed will still be there, your Facebook notifications will remain a red number, and your tweets… people will still be tweeting. The world is not going to end if you set your phone down and go enjoy life.

We’re BACK!

WE’RE BACK BETTIES!

We hope you all had a fabulous summer of sun bathing, shopping, traveling, and meeting your future ex hubbys 🙂

This morning we started our normal routine at the office by checking our email. Our friend sent us a friendly warning about the new iPhone 5s. Before we go into that, let’s just say. This phone looks AMAZING and by AMAZING I mean, it FINALLY comes in gold! OH and for all of you insta-fanatics, the camera is SUPERB.

iPhone5

Here’s the bad news… after months of trying to figure out your boyfriends finger movement for his password or WORSE that god awful app that looks like a maze, you have succeeded. Well.. if your significant other is looking into the iPhone 5s BEWARE. Apple has decided to make it impossible for you to creep. This is actually a good thing because you are crazy for doing so in the first place, but still, it’s a drag. The new pass code is your fingerprint. It will save you time and is much easier considering your filthy fingerprints are on your screen all day anyways.

Watch the video here.

Sorry to kill your vibe on this lovely Tuesday afternoon, but it looks like your super stalker-ish creeping days are OVER… At least your favorite blog is BACK in action to take your mind off how little control you have now 🙂

XOXO,
