5 Favorite iPhone Apps

Everyone has their favorite apps, and today I wanted to share with you my favorite iPhone apps when it comes to being a blogger! (Minus all social media apps, of course). Here are my top 5 favorites, and the best part is that all of these apps are free!

1. Instasize: When I Instagram a picture that can be found on my blog this is the app that I use. It makes the picture the perfect size for Instagram, so that no part of the picture is cropped. It's especially perfect for when I Instagram a vertical outfit picture.

2. Evernote: I keep a running list on my phone of blog post ideas, and items that are on my wish list. I like keeping a wish list on my phone because it helps me prioritize my purchases when I'm out shopping. Right now this is at the top of my wish list. Evernote is the app that I use for this and I love that it syncs up with my other Apple products.

3. rewardStyle: RewardStyle is one of the websites that I use for affiliate links. They have an app for the iPhone in order to add affiliate links to your Instagram pictures. If a person has signed up with LikeToKnow.It and they like your Instagram picture, they will receive links to the products featured in your picture in an email. So convenient, right?!

4. Magic Hour: I don't know where I first learned about this app, but it's amazing! It tells you the magic hour or the optimal time to take pictures to get the best lighting. The app tells you the magic hour based on your location. It's an app I really like to use before my husband and I take outfit pictures for my blog.

5. Bloglovin': Bloglovin' is a great way to see all your favorite blogs in one place. It's my favorite way to read blogs because all new blog posts show up in a feed which is really convinent. I love to scroll through it during the day, and read the latest blog posts that have been published.

What are you favorite iPhone apps?

Tassel and Lace

When I first saw this top show up in my Facebook feed, I had to have it. During my lunch break last week, I scooped up this beauty and the tassel necklace because I love the bohemian vibe that they both have. I also really like how flowy this top is with the gorgeous lace detailing at the bottom. It's the perfect weekend outfit, and it would be amazing for the going to a summer concert too. I hope you had a great weekend!

Skull Print

I mentioned a couple weeks ago that Aeropostale came out with a new collection called Aero Now. I went to check out the collection once it launched it stores and I was so impressed! I picked up this lace tunic because it's going to be the perfect layering piece with kimonos, and with sweaters like this one in the fall. I went a little outside of my comfort zone and decided to pick up this sweater with the skull print, and I really love it! I'll definitely be wearing it a lot once the weather cools down even more.
