5 Apps to Bring Magic to Your Life (and Your Feed!)
Hi, babes! I’ve been getting a lot of questions about my favorite apps, so I thought I’d pop in and share. I love staying up-to-date with the latest and greatest tech to increase productivity, mindfulness, and spark creativity. These are always changing, but here are 5 of my current favorite iPhone apps that will bring some magic to your life, and your Insta feed.
1. Get your inbox to zero.
If you suffer from inbox overload like me, then you’ll love Astro. It uses AI to intelligently organize and prioritize emails, tell you what to follow up on, and overall help you clean up your inbox. It has been such a time-saver for me, and I no longer have to weed through mass marketing to get to the good stuff.
2. Move out of your head and into your mind’s eye.
Headspace is a wonderful resource for anyone looking to cultivate a regular meditation practice. It essentially teaches you ‘how’ to meditate through guided meditations. It costs $12.99 a month, which is less than the cost of one in-person meditation session. I’ve tried a few different meditation apps, and this one feels more personable and conversational. I’m a member of Parsley Health, which snags me a free one-year membership. Woo!
3. Keep up with your to-do list.
Asana is a catch all of your to-do list, your calendar, and your future. You can collaborate with team members, assign projects to multiple people, and set deadlines for each piece of a project. Each task can have its own to-do list, team members, calendar, deadline and links to resources and Google docs. It can be used for a team of 50 or a team of 1. It is a dream if you love keeping organized.
4. Amp up your Insta-Story game.
To really personalize your stories, Unfold is one of my faves! The beautiful and minimal templates allow you to take storytelling to a whole new level. It's an elegant way to still share your raw clips, but in a visually curated way.
5. Bring a little fizz, crackle, and pop to your feed.
Okay, okay, so this is the app that has the most interest from you. If you're wondering how to add a little sparkle to your photos, PicsArt is a fun one! Tip: be mindful of where and how you’re using the brush tool, so you don’t overdo it. Think, simple is better. Just the smallest edit makes the biggest difference!
I've had quite a few inquiries about whether I'll start selling my Lightroom presets. The answer is: I'm not sure. I'm always tweaking things, and I haven't quite landed on what I want visually. I suppose if there is enough interest, I might.
Alright, my friends! Those are the apps doing it for me right now. I'd love to hear from you! Do you use any of these apps? If not, what are some of your favorites?
