Happy Holiday Technology Detox

Christmas gift to self: a technology detox. No blogging, no email, no Twitter, no Facebook for the next five days. (I’ll still be indulging in Pinterest and Instagram, the social equivalent to dark chocolate—very good for me in moderation.) What started out as an experiment on a trip to our (internet-free) cabin in Montana has become a personal mandate. It’s cleans out the clutter and the noise so that I can hear my inner voice and let any suppressed feelings float to the surface. Clarity only comes when we allow it. Like one nice long mediation. Only there will be wine. And massages. And an OUTDOOR claw-foot tub. Yes, this techtox will take place in Napa. More on that when I return! Fa-la-la-la-la.
Happy everything!
p.s. Anyone care to join me? In the detox that is, not the tub.

    Born and raised in Minnesota by surprisingly low-maintenance parents, beauty writer and lifestyle editor Elizabeth Dehn (aka Bets) spent her awkward years buying Mood lipstick and whipping up DIY face masks before founding Beauty Bets in 2009 as a way to share candid product reviews and real beauty advice for smart women everywhere. When she’s not test-driving the latest beauty treatment (bee venom facial, anyone?) or serving as the beauty editor for Mpls. St. Paul Magazine and, Elizabeth can be spotted running the Minneapolis Lakes with her white lab, Molly Thomas, or sipping champagne on a killer patio. Pass the sunscreen.
