Ah August... women's month. I'm sure by now you've heard all the motivational speak re women: How brilliant we are, how well we handle pressure, how we always go the extra mile, how we sacrifice of ourselves to make sure someone is happy, fed and clothed, oh and not forgetting we are the multi-taskers of note. And we wait a whole year to be reminded of all of the above. :). What's next? We are reminded to spoil ourselves... oh and how we love to do this, a rare occassion... better still: we want to be spoilt.
What's your idea of being spoilt? A pamper session, shopping vouchers, retail therapy, a visit to the hairdresser or spa. Today I would like to add technology to your list. Have you thought about spoiling yourself with a cellphone, not just any cellphone but a smartphone. Gone are the days where you say: "I just want to send sms's and make calls". Oh no ladies step up! What about keeping up to date with the social media sites, your calendar or diary is so important so that you remain on top of everything happening in your life, being able to use an instant message system such as Whatsapp, Googling the unknown and a favourite of mine which I can't do without is Google Maps. So while we have this excuse (Women's Month), make a smart decision, get a smart phone.
