Disconnected

As a generation, we practically breathe technology. Which is why connecting to everyone is so effortless; whether it is the school friend that you haven't met in more than 8 years, your family who lives continents away or the sandwich -walla below your building *whose chilly cheese toast is to die for!* And with Facebook,Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, BBM, Whatsapp and..*I could go on and on!*, we have this curiosity to not only know about the lives of every soul within a million mile radius; but also to share inane facts of our lives *what packaged drinking water you're carrying in your bag and whether the chilly cheese toast had capsicum or not in it* with all these souls. Basically, technology has left us with no space and has left no detail a secret.
And while technology is a necessity for most of us *me included*, that's not always a good thing. Every once a while, make sure you get off the damn internet, let your eyeballs get some rest and realize that there's an entire world beyond your Facebook homepage. It's good for you, your health and your mind.






Outfit: Blue shirt & White linen pants - United Colours of Benetton, Black velvet hair band - Self made
Make-up: NYX matte lip cream in 'Milan, NYX nail varnish in 'Lady First'

And that is exactly what I'm planning to do this week. 
After my amazing internship has come to a close, I've decided to take a breather a.k.a a break from the blog for a week to catch up on my college work, enjoy the weather, to catch on my pending TV shows and to get back to life as I know it.

I hope you've been having a lovely week & here's to a happy weekend! I'll be back sooner that soon brimming with new thoughts, with tonnes of posts and a little surprise, just for you!

I really couldn't agree with you more. I'm going through one of those, I need to disconnect phases too but I'll just be needing a little more will power!
Love the simple casual outfit :) Perfect for a day in reading! :)

must hav been telepathy, coz i have been thinking about the same topic all through the day! i was at the mall with a frnd the whole day and accidentally left my iphone at home. it was a wierd feeling whole day, like i was missing a part of my life or something! i was thinking of taking it up as a challenge to stay away from iphone (maybe swap it for a normal cellphone for some days :P) wonder how that will work ?
nicely written post btw, and pics are fab, i love the poses, innovative!

We couldn't agree more! We so easily let technology take over my life without even realizing it! But with this reminder maybe we'll take a tiny break off it too :) And hope you enjoy yours <3
Love both the beautiful blue top and the linen pants! <3

Loved the simple yet chic outfit. And yes, I so agree I leave my cell phone home while I go out for dinners with my husband though it was difficult in beginning but its totally cool now, I spend each moment with my hubby without getting distracted. :D
hmmm... Internet and phone are such an addiction!! You look comfy and chic. That lip color suits you so well :)

This is a fantastic post!! It's so true, I've realized I'm totally addicted to "being connected" whether it be through my phone, or FB, and there's little room for privacy or secrecy. It's like a double edged sword...
Following (btw) ;)

Saludos!!
