Disconnect! 

Home, Lifestyle May 1, 2015

  

If you are anything like me you love all things tech. But the downside of technology are all of the infuriating cords. I’ve been trying to tape them, tuck them, hide them in those little cord hiders. Nothing worked. I was exhausted. Then I stumbled upon the answer.   

This was our cord situation. I’m sure I’m not the only one. Ugh, horrible!!! 

 First I had to pick up some supplies. Some large binder clips from Staples, some AJB washers from Home Depot and some random screws that I had lying around the house. Make sure your screws aren’t so long that they break through your desk.   

  Fold the binder clip back. 

  Put the washer on the inside of the furthest silver handle. 

  Then add your screw. You will screw this under the desk. Make sure you put them in the right places so they can securely hold all of your cords. 
  
Once they are screwed in tight you can clamp all of your cords down. I used about 6. Some under the desk and some on the back. 

 
The final product is a much more clean and organized space and under $10. Finally!!! 

   

One ring to rule them all!

My jewelry collection has grown one bauble larger today thanks to a wonderful article written by Brit + Co. My Ringly smart ring has arrived!  It’s beyond just fashion its wearable tech, fabulous, miraculous, wearable tech.  Ringly allows you to connect to all your networks while staying in the present moment. It’s a super gorgeous 18 carat matte gold ring with a semi-precious stone. Im just in love! 

As an early adopter the founder and CEO sent a lovely thank you letter. Can’t ask for a classier company.

The packaging is exquisite.

This is what I found inside!  The little box held the black and gold USB cord the larger box holds the good stuff.

The ring box doubles as a portable charger. Just plug it in with the detachable USB cord and it charges while it charges your ring.  The box even holds the charge after it’s disconnected so you can charge on the go. Ugh…perfection!

The ring pairs with an app and alerts you to phone calls, text messages, emails, calendar events, even social media updates.  It buzzes and lights up in an array of colors (pink-more like red, yellow, blue, purple, and green). The buzz is super subtle, far more appropriate for that, middle of a board meeting, text message. My phone vibrates so loudly that I may as well have the ringer on. I’ve even set it up to buzz and shine a specific color when my beloved calls.

Basically, this is the best thing ever created. I mean next to penicillin and the printing press. So, in my humble opinion, get this ring!
