A Few of My Favorite Apps

IMG_3414

Today, I thought I would share a few of my favorite ipad and iphone apps with you. To my knowledge, all of these are free.

iphone apps:

Run Keeper: This app is a must if you are a runner! It is GPS enabled and it can be set to keep track of your pace, distance, time, elevation gained, splits, etc. It tracks weekly and monthly activity and lets you know the number of calories that you burn and the number of miles that you run.


Shopular: This app allows you to select your favorite stores and then it provides you with current coupons. Just click on the coupon and then redeem to get the coupon on your phone. All you have to do is show your phone with the coupon upon checkout. It is easy to use and can save you lots of time searching for coupons.


Pandora: This app allows you to play music anywhere. You can select from any genre.


Flashlight: I use this app a lot. The flashlight is very bright and works well!


Mint: You can link your bank accounts and investments to this app. It tracks real time financial transactions and shows instant categorization. It gives you spending alerts for fraudulant charges and keeps track of budgets set each month.


ipad apps:

Nook: You can download this app and then go to Barnes and Noble's website and purchase nook books. These are usually very reasonably priced. The purchased books will show up in your nook app.


What To Expect When You Are Expecting: This is a great app for expecting mothers and fathers. It shows weekly videos and updates of your baby's progress. It gives tips on healthy eating, how to deal with morning sickness, etc.


Style Spotter: This gives you photos of items that are currently trending. It also shows the price and gives store where the items can be purchased.


Glasses.com: This app allows you to take a short video of your face starting with front view and then turning your head to the side. It then allows you to select frames and shows how they look on your face. I thought this app was helpful the last time I was trying to decide on frames. It also allows you to purchase the frames online.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

Daily Makeup Routine

IMG_3398

Today, I thought I would share my daily makeup routine with all of you. First, I apply Makeup Forever concealer under my eyes and use it to cover up any blemishes. I tried this on a whim and it is by far the best concealer that I have ever used! I am a huge fan! Next, I dust Bare Minerals Matte Foundation in medium beige all over my face. Then, I use Bare Minerals warmth all over to give me some color. Next, I add Bare Minerals kiss blush to my cheeks. Last, I dust Bare Minerals mineral veil all over. This is a lightweight powder that seals everything in place. I love Bare Minerals makeup. It is so lightweight that it feels like you do not have anything on. Also, I love the fact that it is good for your skin! Since switching to Bare Minerals, my face does not feel greasy and I have very few breakouts.

Next, I apply Clinique eyeliner in really black under my eyelids. Then, I dust Red Apple Lipstick eyeshadow on my eyelids. I love Red Apple Lipstick products because they are gluten free and do not contain any parabens. Also, you can sign up to be a V.I.P member for free and will receive a 20% off coupon every month. Last, I apply Maybelline Define A Lash mascara in very black.

Last of all, I apply Red Apple Lipstick rallye balm to my lips. This is a clear moisturizing balm that is very hydrating and helps prevent chapped lips. Then, I apply Red Apple lipstick or gloss. I usually use a gloss when I want just a little bit of shine on my lips. I use the lipsticks when I want a bolder look. Thank you so much for reading!

How adorable is this striped lace top from Millie Girl Boutique? It is lightweight and perfect for summer! I love mint and coral colors paired together, so I added this mint bubble necklace.
