10 Apps We Can't Live Without

It's the simple truth: some apps just make life better.  Whether they enhance your life through photography or music, our phones would be lost without them!  We've compiled a list of apps that have become our favorites... and we're sure that they will be your favorites, too.

If we had to pick only one photo app to use, this would be the winner!  Afterlight is our go-to, all bundled up in one pretty app.  Crop, add borders, add filters, add exposure, brighten, sharpen, add light leaks... you name it, Afterlight does it.  Everything can be customized as well.  Under "light leaks," tap the rainbow color icon for more color options.  Use the adjusting bar at the bottom to lighten or increase the intensity on all features.  Play around on this app, and you will discover all of the beautiful custom edits you can do!

When adding text to a photo, look no further than Word Swag.  The font choices & layouts are of graphic designer quality, sure to showcase your message in style.  Use one of their provided backgrounds (they have plenty of cool ones) or upload your own photo to add text.  If you're stumped on what to say, they even have suggestions!  Like Afterlight, be sure to explore the various options and customizations to make the text uniquely yours.

If you're not using Spotify, it's time to check it out.  And it's worth every penny for the upgraded version without advertisements (Spotify Premium) as well!  Every song, at your fingertips, all the time.  Create playlists, follow playlists in any music genre, and explore all artists.  Take it with you on the go, and sync Spotify over Bluetooth in your car too.  If you're looking for a place to start, check out our Summer Playlist and our EDM Workout Playlist

Too many pictures (or videos) your phone taking up space?  Don't want to delete all of them, just in case you ever need one of them?  Dropbox is your answer!  Download the app to your phone, and sync it with your photo album.  Once synched, delete photos on your phone with ease... knowing that they're stored right on your Dropbox app if ever needed!  Bonus: if you install Dropbox on your computer too, you can access the same photos from there as well.

We love Pinterest, it can entertain us for hours on end.  If you're not pinning from the app on your phone, it's time to give it a whirl.  Pinterest is faster, easier, and a whole new experience when viewed on the app!

Paying for parking, but would rather not swipe your card at the meter?  Pay with ease using your credit card on your phone, using PayByPhone.  It's secure, and helps to save you time as well.  

7. Venmo
Need to pay your roommate for rent?  Does your bestie want to pay you for last night's pizza delivery?  Venmo is your answer, allowing you to pay or collect money from others with ease... no checks or cash required.

8. Yelp
Looking for a great restaurant or coffee house nearby?  Want to see what other people thought of those chicken enchiladas (with pictures too)?  The Yelp app is here to answer these questions, on the go.  Yelp is also great to use when you're traveling to a new city, and looking for suggestions of places to go try!

9. Etsy
If you enjoy shopping on Etsy, you're going to love the app!  Browse and discover new shops and items, and make purchases within seconds.  Add items to your Favorites list if you want to save them for later.  We love browsing Etsy for unique gifts, especially gifts that can be customized! 

Because well, it's Instagram.

What are your favorite apps?  We would love to discover more!

Photo Bulletin Boards {DIY}

As it is that time of year, our favorite time of year to be exact…recruitment time, I myself am neck deep in ribbon, rhinestones, and glitter!! “Extreme crafting” as our chapter likes to refer to it, is in full swing.  One of the biggest and most important projects that we partake in during the week of recruitment, and one of our biggest recruiting tools we utilize, are bulletin boards scattered throughout our house. These boards are a fun and charming way to give all of the beautiful Potential New Members a quick peek into the life they could soon be living. Although these boards seem like an easy task to accomplish, they are actually far from it.  This is why I wanted to share with our readers how to create the cutest and easiest boards for your chapter, dorm room, apartment, or house.

My biggest inspiration for my creations this year was Pinterest of course! Making a Pinterest board with inspiration is a necessary component to this process. I had many fun quotes and sayings on a pin board, as well as interesting visual designs compiled so I could draw inspiration at the click of a mouse…. because let's be honest, Pinterest makes us all have creative bones in our bodies. 

Each of the bulletin boards at our chapter have a theme; something that our entire chapter is involved in.  This could be anything from philanthropies to bid day, or tons of different sisterhood events from the past year. You name it, we have a board for it. In previous years, we have created boards with different backgrounds and colors. This year, we chose a color scheme to make them cohesive & more appealing to the eye. Adding a flirty flower border on every board flawlessly tied the themes together. In the end, I learned these boards are a lot of work... but they can easily display the greatest events your chapter and sisters partake in over the year! 

What crafts does your house like to make during recruitment season?  Share with us below!
