5 Go-To Apps I Have On My Phone

Hi Guys! Happy hump day! 🙂

For today’s post I thought it would be fun to share with you guys five of my go-to apps that I have on my phone. The apps that I’m going to mention are the ones that I pretty much use daily and/or just generally, that really come in handy to me.

I’m not including any social media ones just because yes obviously I use all of my social media apps/accounts regularly, but they’re not really that important.

Not only are the apps I’m going to mention the ones that I use almost daily, but I also find them (personally) pretty important which I’ll go into detail for why in a bit.

So without further adieu…

* * * * * *

In no particular order:

  1. My Fitness Pal

My-Fitness-Pal-App

I have actually spoken about this app a few times on my blog throughout a few of my fitness posts. Ultimately it’s a great app if you’re into fitness because it allows you to keep track of everything from what you eat throughout the day, to the amount of calories you need to intake, to how many steps you’ve taken in a day, your weight, etc.

I highly recommend downloading this app ESPECIALLY if you’re just starting your fitness journey because it’s a great place to keep track of everything like this in one specific place.

2. Eternal Sunshine

I don’t really know or remember how I came across this app, but I am SO glad that I did. It’s just a really great motivational app. If you happen to have and/or just know of the app called A Sprinkle of Jesus, I think it’s pretty similar to that. Every day, at least 3-4 times a day, I get notifications for inspirational/motivational quotes, daily mantras to tell myself in order to get motivated about other things, etc.

I never realized how much I needed this app until I finally got it and saw the kind of notifications I was getting from it. 10/10 recommend if you’re looking for motivation every now and then.

3. Citizen

If you’re anything like me and happen to get anxiety fairly quickly, this might not be the best app for you. However, I do have it just because as much as I may dislike the notifications I get from it all the time, I do also like to be in the know and aware of things that are going on around me.

Ultimately it’s an app that if you put in some credentials for yourself and the area you live in, it’ll update you on and any all crime that happens to be going on in the general vicinity. Everything from serious stuff like murders, to much less serious stuff like 2 people simply fighting in the area. It also allows you to chat with other people in the same vicinity that may have other details about what’s going in that incident, as well as post any possible pictures/videos of any incidences that occurred.

4. Retail-Me-Not

If you happen to go out shopping a lot, and especially look for coupons/discounts while doing it, I sincerely hope and recommend that you download this app. It is perfect for finding deals that may be going on in particular store favorites of yours.

I’m not exactly sure how many stores that they include in this and how they go about choosing the people/stores they want apart of it, but once you get into the app, it allows you to search for particular stores that you want and show if there are any deals and discounts going on in that store currently or online.

5. And finally, WordPress

Surprised? You shouldn’t be. If you happen to have a blog and use this particular site for it, this is the perfect app to have on your phone. It’s literally just a handle-held version of the site. You can check all of your stats, start and/or edit blog posts, etc. It’s super convenient especially if for whatever reason I happen to be wanting to publish a post, but am not around a computer, I can just do it right there and then on the app.

* * * * * *

I hope this was helpful to you guys in some type of way. Leave me a comment down below or on my social media accounts about some of YOUR go-to apps you have on your phone and I’ll be sure to check them out!

I hope you guys enjoyed this post, thanks so much for reading and I’ll see you guys in the next one 🙂

I Don’t Know Who Needs To Hear This But….

You are not alone.

I know that feeling. I know how it feels to feel like you have to deal with your demons silently. I know how it feels to feel like you can’t even turn to your own family. I know how it feels to not even want to turn to your closest friends or significant other for fear of feeling like a burden. I know how it feels to feel like you have no one. I know how it feels to feel like you’re stuck and have no options.

I know that place, and it freakin’ sucks to be in it.

That being said, I don’t care if I don’t know you, I don’t care if you think I may not like you, I don’t even care if we’ve had “issues” in the past. If you’re seriously struggling internally and feel like you’ve got nowhere to go and no one to speak to, I will be “someone” for you. I will be there for you if you want and/or need it.

If I can be of some type of help to you, or just someone to speak to for the day to clear your mind and thoughts, or be that ‘shoulder to cry on,’ I will be that.

Please reach out. I promise you, someone will care and want to listen. I promise that you won’t actually have to go through anything alone.

Stay Strong.

Fall Favorites Tag!

Happy Monday everyone!

The start of another new week.

I know people tend to dread Mondays because it’s the start of the week, and it seems like FOREVER until the start of the next weekend, but let’s try making the best of it.

The start of a new week means the start of new opportunities to do things you weren’t previously able to do, always keep that in mind.

* * * * * *

For today’s post, I thought it would be fun to keep the Fall-themed vibes going with a tag post about none other than Fall (bet you didn’t see that coming 😂). So this is going to be the Fall Favorites tag.

df444fb0913a6e15b49b9ab9b1afb95d--chai-latte-pumpkin-spice-latte

I don’t know about anyone else, but personally, Fall is pretty much my favorite season. Weather-wise it’s perfect because (ideally) it’s in between being warm and cool where you might not necessarily have to wear a jacket, but sweaters and cardigans will suffice. The leaves on the trees are changing colors and falling. The holidays begin to approach and so many other great things.

That being said, I’m going to be sharing with you guys some of my current Fall favorites, although some of them really haven’t changed much from last year or even from before that.

* * * * * *

  1. What is your favorite Fall scent?

I would have to say that my all time favorite candle scent is a candle called Home from Bath & Body Works. The scent is an amazing blend of warm caramel, vanilla bean and juicy pear…UGH. It smells amazing. I’ve actually had it for about 2 years and only light it once in a while because I think they discontinued this scent since I can’t find it anywhere anymore 😢

2. Favorite Fall Lip Color

Ugh there are SO many, there’s Lolita from Kat Von D, Kylie Cosmetics has a LOT of nice Fall liquid lipstick shades like Leo, Pumpkin, Moon,  Love Bite, Ginger and Vixen that are all really pretty, Mac lipstick in the shade Captivating, etc. etc. I could go on FOREVER.

3. Favorite Fall Blush

My favorite blush in general, regardless of the season is the Nars blush in Orgasm.

4. Favorite Fall Clothing Item

It’s a tie between flannels, light sweaters and my Charlotte Russe combat boots.

5. Favorite Fall Movie

This is a tie between Hocus Pocus and all of the HalloweenTown movies!!

6. Favorite Fall TV Show

I’ll have to say that I think Riverdale is the best TV show for the Fall.

7. Favorite Thanksgiving Food

Does dessert count as food?! 🤣, I suppose the turkey itself though.

8. Favorite Halloween Costume

I don’t usually get to dress up much for Halloween, but basing it off of previous costumes, I’ll say last year when I was a lion tamer and Michelle (my best friend) was the lion.

9. What is one thing that you look forward to every single Fall?

Being able to go Pumpkin & Apple picking and start preparing for the holidays.

10. How do you like to spend the more chilly/cloudy days in the Fall?

I love to spend these kinds of days one of 2 ways: with Diego cuddled up in bed eating food/snacks while watching movies, or if I can’t be with him, probably cuddled up in bed, enjoying a good book.

11. Which do you prefer: Halloween or Thanksgiving?

I love a healthy mixture of both honestly.

12. What is your favorite trend (fashion/makeup/etc) so far this season?

For fashion, I would have to say that I love a cute yet simple flannel paired with a comfy pair of leggings kind of look with some combat boots. As for makeup, I think a simple look, with a light eye look paired with a bold lip looks SO cool and cute for Fall.

13. Describe what the Fall weather really looks like where you live.

So far, Fall didn’t get off to the best start here in the Northeast, specifically, New York. It was really warm and humid out for a while, up until about 2-3 days ago actually. Now we’re starting to feel the “normal” cool, rainy weather that tends to come along with the Fall season. And hopefully within the next 2-3 weeks we’ll begin to see the leaves start changing and falling more and more.

14. Do you like baking in the autumn season?

I LOVE baking in general, and for me, the “baking season” starts in the Fall, so that’s definitely something I always look forward to every year.

15. Which is your most loved pumpkin-based food?

Pumpkin pie cheesecake….EVERYBODY needs to try it, I promise you will not be disappointed 😍

16. Do you enjoy feeling the cold air, or do you wrap up warm?

I love the feeling of cold air, and having my room be cold in general (at night only), so that I’m able to wrap up in my blankets and feel all warm and cozy.

17.  Fairy lights or candles? What is your choice in the Fall?

Both! I have fairy lights with little pumpkins on them stringing across my vanity, and keep my favorite Fall scented candle on top of my vanity as well.

18.  Which place do you always wish to visit in the Fall season?

It’s not necessarily a ‘specific place’, but I always love the drive going up to White Plains (in New York). It gets to a certain point where you’re driving by/through a ton of trees for a while, and the colors of all the trees together look SO beautiful and peaceful. In general, the scenery is honestly my favorite during this time of year.

19.   During the Fall season, what do you enjoy most with your partner?

Diego and I love so many different things about this time of year, but some of the main things include the cool, breezy weather change and the holidays approaching.

20.  Share your favorite quote related to the autumn.

“Notice how the trees do not cling to their leaves. Fall is about releasing the old to make way for the new.” ☺️🍁🍂

Let me know what some of your guys’ Fall favorites are, and whether or not we have any of the same ones. Thanks for reading and I’ll see you guys in my next post 🙂
