My energetic little cherub only takes one nap per day. It’s been this way for months and months. Be it ten minutes or two hours- one nap, that’s all I get. Most days I think ahead about how to supersize nap time…which gave me the idea for this post.
*One hundred percent my opinions, this list is not sponsored in any way*
1. 7 Minute work-out: A whole body work out in 7 minutes.
2. Food Gawker Lite: Pretty pictures of delicious looking food.
My attempt at roasted carrot & beet risotto was surprisingly delicious!
Completely at a loss for what to make? Check out their categories:
My taste-buds thank you, Foodgawker.
3. Calendars: You need this to schedule your life!
As much as I both adore and fear Google, what’s with their Calendar App? I’m sorry but I’d like to see more than just a dot on my day to day to let me know if I have several events, in what order, how important they are, or if it’s just a reminder to pay a bill. Dot, dot, dot.
A bit like Microsoft Outlook (in a good way), This App allows you to see a little glimpse of what activity you have on, and if there are multiples, it shows you what order! *Sigh*
4. Headspace: Meditation App.
Saves time by giving you a healthier head.
5. A Beautiful Mess: Photo editing App
Upload directly to other social media apps. Okay…maybe this one is more of a time-waster but I still dig it.
6. Whatsapp: Free text messaging anywhere in the world.
Clearly this one is a staple with family and friends back in America but it’s also a fun/ distracting way to stay connected to mates during the work day. And you can create little group messages where you can share funny images, links and texts even while you’re at home and they are at work.
I have the paid version. Worth every cent. The TV stays off on my house a lot more than it would (I like noise for company) had it not been for this app. Lavinia is quite the music connoisseur- she rocks out to everything from Pharell to Weezer.
Saves time by letting baby bop around the kitchen while I clean up her mess.
8. Pinterest: Inspiration boards.
Bored at home? Ideas about anything from first birthday parties, to activities for children to home improvement projects…I guarantee if you are ever ‘bored’ (I don’t even know what this word means), open up this app and you’ll have a brand new, fully-stocked to-do list. Not that you will have much time to complete it.
Wanna fill some time? Here you go.
9. Etsy: An online shopping haven for the homemade and vintage
Saves time by avoiding malls!
May you go forth and become addicted to one or more of these applications. You’re welcome.
What are the apps you can’t live without?
