Lifestyle | Apps I Use For Blogging & Instagram.

I’m someone who reads other blogs and search online about apps bloggers/influencers use to make their social media life easier and practical. Bloggers out there know blogging means commitment and apps helps a lot with it! I want to share my apps, maybe you didn’t know these helpful ‘’blogging elves’’ yet.

I’m going to start with the most important thing when it becomes to blogging, studying and working. Having your own space! It doesn’t matter how big or small your house is, having a place where you can work peacefully is a must. Mine is my room and in particularly my desk, where I have everything around me from magazines to get inspiration to a pen and paper to scribble down my thoughts. I understand that for everyone it is different. Sitting on the floor in the middle of chaos called life is perfectly fine too.

The app that I use for my blog is of course WordPress. I found this platform the perfect way to blog. It is easy to work with, it has many options and when you need help WordPress is there to help you quickly and understandable. The next app I use is Business Suite from Facebook, I use it for my Facebook page. When I want to share my blogposts, I use it and to see my statistics. What I also use is Bloglovin’. It is a platform for bloggers who share their blog that you can follow to read their new blogposts. I use it for inspiration and read other blogs, it also helps to redirect readers to your blog! The next one I use is Telegram. This app I mostly use to share my Instagram posts in groups for more exposure. The only app I use for ambassadorships is Brandbassador. By promoting their products by sharing a code, you get commission every time your code is being used.

For my Instagram stories and the latest Twitter Fleets, I use the apps Unfold and StoriesEdit. I love these apps because it adds flair to my stories. For the annoying follow to unfollow people I use Unfollowers for Intsagram and Unfollow for my Twitter. It also shows ghost followers and interactions you get on your accounts. It works perfectly for when your account is public. Unwanted interactions are easy to maintain and easy to block them. Hallelujah for this!

What kind of apps do you use?

Lifestyle | 10 Things I Can’t Live Without.

As I’m writing this blogpost, I’m feeling thankful. I do what I love on a laptop that I wanted and needed. Not only do I use it for my blogging, but also for my college. Making reports to writing blogposts and store pictures is just a glimpse of what I do on my laptop.

The next item I can’t live without, just like many Loves, is my phone. I got an iPhone 8+ and it works perfectly. It is just like my laptop, but in a small size. Again, I do everything with it. Post something on my social media to making notes.

Writing about notes, notebooks! You always will find one in my bag. They are perfect for writings and for to-dos. I also write my blog ideas in it, quick college notes and other scribbles. I am a hoarder when it comes to notebooks. When I see cute ones, I can’t resist to take it and put in the shopping basket. I have them in different shapes and sizes, it is truly like an addiction!

Drinking lots of water is such a struggle, I even forget it! Simply because I’m too busy during my day. To remind myself I got myself a water bottle, a sugar pink one that I put in my bag for on the go.

To relax and have me time after a hectic day, I light candles in my room. When I put the lights out and put a movie on or watch a series on Netflix I come to rest. My body goes instantly into the relaxing mode. I can watch good series or a movie for hours! On top of that, it suits my room decor perfectly.

As I’m writing this list, I have ended up with beauty related items. Wipes are definitely something I need in my bag. They come such in need when I just have eaten between my classes or I feel that my hands need a wipe.

I have to use hand cream after using wipes or washing my hands. My hands tend to feel taut and dry. So, I had to add it into my list! I feel so annoyed when I don’t find one in my bag that I let them in my bags for when I take another bag with me.

Same goes for lip gloss! I’m hooked on the ones from Dior. They are quite long lasting that I only apply it once or twice during my day. Even the glow fades away, I still feel my lips are well moisturized.

When I make myself ready to go, either to my classes or run errands, I have to use perfume. It turned into a habit for me. After using deodorant, I spray perfume on my neck, wrists and on my clothes and hair. I love how the scent pops up when you move during the day!

Jewellery is the last item on my list. If you know me well Loves, I love to add flair into an outfit. Jewellery adds that flair! I feel quite ‘’naked’’ when I forget to put earrings on or rings around my fingers. I just love how it looks on my hands and wrists!

 

What are your favourite items you can’t live without?

Lifestyle | Coffee Table Books.

I have a love and hate relationship with books. When I was younger, I devoured book after book, from novels to biographies. As I got older, I slacked reading them and the rise of social media didn’t help me either. To be honest I miss those days where I dropped my backpack in a corner and went straight to my room to read my favourite book at the moment.

I’m trying to get that feeling back so, I smile when I find the perfect coffee table book to start with getting back into the reading rhythm. The short poems/stories from Rupi Kaur is one of my favourites at the moment. Some are so relatable, funny and sad at the same time. Definitely books that takes you riding back to your memory lane.

Fashion related books makes me smile too. The quotes give you a glimpse of the thoughts from fashion designers and stylists. It is fun to read and some you need to take with a grain of salt. I love the pictures or illustrations you’ll find in the books. Many are taken or drawn by well know photographers and illustrators who works behind the scenes of a photoshoot, event or even a fashion magazine! So, not only it gives me a glimpse of their thoughts but, also the events they visited and since I like to visit events for my blog is it for me fascinating to look at.

Same goes for the book How to be Parisian wherever you are, from Sophie Mas, Audrey Diwan, Caroline de Maigret and Anne Berest. The book is about love, style and bad habits with many anecdotes and how-to. A book that makes you take life not seriously and enjoy the moment. Perfect for days when you want to laugh and imagine you wandering styled like a Parisian in the middle of Paris in the Larudée shop eating your favourite macaron and sipping tea. Ugh…Dreaming about it already!

Which book do you like to have on your coffee table? Share it with me and maybe I’ll add it too!
