Spring forward with accessories for your iPhone and iPad

by on March 26th, 2013

Spring devicesIt’s that time again to spring forward and update your accessories with fun new colors not just PINK! Whether your celebrating Easter or Spring time here are some cool products to check out.

I had the chance to review unique new colors of iPhone 5 cases, ear buds, special edition spring color think putty and Toddy cloth for your iPad and iPhones.

I love me some high quality ear buds. Wicked earbuds have been my favorite since CES 2009. I remember going to the both as a young cutegeeker drawn to their unique design but the sound quality has always been amazing especially the base …if only I didn’t break them all throughout the years.

JawbreakersWicked did a fabulous job on these Wicked Green Jawbreaker earbuds. Great green spring color with a mic incorporated flawlessly and makes you stand out from the “white cords” (you know what I’m talking about). You can get these from most online stores and run about $19.99.

Happiness. Get it. Give it.

FRESHMARKETWORDS_fwmhap2xx_alt_1

Got happiness? Do you really? If you do – woohoo! Go give some away. It’s free, contagious and fat-free, who would deny some? If you don’t have some, go find some quickly!!
Out of the many decisions you make today, I’ll ask that you choose happiness. Choose happiness instead of an attitude, a criticism, or complaint. Choose happiness and hold on tight to it, as you start your day, and compile your to-do-lists. Just choose it over other feelings that aren’t as cool to feel, like stress or anxiety – tell them they need to find their own day.

National Plan a Solo Vacation Day

by on March 1st, 2013

I wish I were kidding, but it’s apparently that kind of day and when in Rome, you do as the Romans.

Similar to National Unplugging Day – this one is quite new to me. I actually never heard of it but have participated in solo vacations (not only a day) and it’s pretty liberating. Like disconnecting from technology, disconnecting from breathing things is also nice. It lets you listen to that little voice in your head and enjoy your own company.

There are many cities that make traveling solo super easy – like the wonderful city of New York. There are so many museums, shops and parks to visit, that you can easily spend the day roaming the streets (alone) and still have a great time.

FinderCodes has developed a list of 5 things to keep you safe and entertained…
1. disconnect (yay to unplugging)
2. create a new memory – try something new. something you’ve never done before
3. act like a local – go to where they go, eat where they eat (it’s usually better taste/less pricey)
4. don’t become a swipe ninja – don’t pay or charge things you may not need to pay full amount for. use yipit to search for deals, google free stuff to do
5. stay ready so you don’t have to get ready – no one likes planning for disaster but its good to be informed and alert. carry extra copies of important identifications. take a copy and email it to yourself – you never know what could happen. don’t travel to dark places, with no signs of human life – its just common sense. if no one is there, why should you be? share all the details of your trip w/ a loved one – just as an ‘FYI’

I love booking hotels on priceline.com, car rentals using carrentals.com and yipit.com because it consolidates all of those deals websites. Happy ‘solo vacation day’ planning!

Thanks for the support

by on March 1st, 2013

thanksSometimes that hardest part of doing something is starting – but we started, 4 years ago exactly, and we’re not done, thanks to you all – the readers and supporters – there’s more to come!

Last night, in between my aunt’s 75th birthday celebrating, I ran away to a room and blogged for the first time in too long. I remembered how good it felt to write – even therapeutic…

Happy National Day of Unplugging

by on March 1st, 2013

TRI_022713_NationalDayOfUnpluggingLooks like we share a birthday with this awesome cause! They’re exactly 4 years strong and have been striving to remind us all about the importance of unplugging. How many times do you recall ‘disconnecting from life’ and by that I mean anything that vibrates, rings, needs to be plugged and doesn’t breathe.

I personally need to do this every so often and I look forward to it.

Ever had a ‘stay-cation’ where it’s just you, a book and a turned off cell phone? I have and it’s wonderful. Try it or go to NationalDayofUnplugging.com to learn more.

Need some tips on how to disengage? Read more here, thanks to TheDailyBeast.com

Happy Birthday CuteGeek!

by on March 1st, 2013

happy-birthday-ornament-backgrounds-wallpapersIt’s our 4th birthday & we’re so happy you’re celebrating with us 🙂

Four years ago, we embarked on a mission – a critical mission. Our mission was to bring the female perspective on technology to the world. We had to expose the immense buying power we have, while exhibiting the many hats we wear. We’ve tried showing careers in technology awesome women have, and hope it inspires many more females to pursue futures in technology.

Like any other 4 year old, we have a lot of growing and learning to do, but we’re motivated and excited about the future. We’re planning on adding some dynamic writers, featuring more product reviews, and writing about some of the wonderful things happening in our world – thanks to some courageous women.

Look out for more. I’m back 🙂 Continue Reading…
