App Love

I love discovering fun new apps and sometimes rediscovering old ones. Here are some apps I am loving right now.

1. BeautifulMess

This app lets you create fun little doodles and text on top of photos you take. It costs $0.99, but I promise it's worth it!

2. Draw Something 2 Free

I used to have Draw Something Free and even though I was slightly obsessed, it died out after a bit. My friend told me about Draw Something 2 a few weeks ago and I have been hooked (again) ever since.

3. Cards
My friend told me about this awesome app that allows you to make cards using your own pictures, as well as premade designs. The app itself is free, and for about 3 dollars, you can actually mail a hard copy of your creation to a friend or family member. Since I love snail mail and stationary, I had to download this app. I already sent my dad a card and I am planning on sending one to everyone in my contact list.

What apps are you constantly opening these days?

One of the simplest ways to pamper yourself is by indulging in a warm bath or shower and using your favorite soaps and lotions. I am lover of L'Occitane products. I recently discovered their Almond Delicious Soap. It has pieces of almond in the soap to exfoliate your skin. It has is a subtle floral scent that is so soothing. I also use the L'Occitane Cherry Blossom hand cream. It is thick and creamy without feeling heavy and slick after you apply it. For when I really want to treat myself, I turn to a body scrub. The sea salts exfoliate your skin and leave you feeling like you just had a mini body massage. It is such a simple and great way to pamper yourself.
What do you do to pamper yourself?

In Bloom

This past weekend I was lucky enough to have my mom in the city to visit me for a few days. We had such a great time walking around, finding new restaurants, and attending Jersey Boys on Friday night. The weather was perfect and we must have walked what felt like 20 miles each day.
I showed her some of my favorite spots in NYC from the Jackie O. Reservoir to the best place for bagels and veggie cream cheese. Everywhere we walked flowers and trees were in full bloom. Park Avenue is covered in red tulips, and cherry blossoms shade the reservoir running path.

On Saturday, my mother and I made our way to the East Meadow for an afternoon lounging in the sun. That is sure to be my go-to spot this summer. I am so eager for this semester to come to an end so I can spend more sunny days in the park. Give me a good book and the sunshine and I will be set for hours. Maybe a little catnap for good measure.
