Theres an App for that…

So recently I signed up for a newsletter from Tasting Table because well I love food, I mean who doesn’t right?  Plus living in the NYC one is bombarded with countless places to eat it’s almost impossible to keep up.  I signed up because I wanted reciepes and things to know about NYC food scene (ummm food blogger here) and liked how TT had it all together.  So I get the email and scroll down and see a call out for this app called DINE.  Not to be confused with the dating app….

But there is a serious lack of food dining apps that allow you to curate what you want to eat.  I had one years ago and well they went the way of the dodo so DINE it is.  I love that the app allows you to search be hood, food type and even “hot spots”.  So I honestly have yet to really use it but I figured all my foodies would enjoy knowing about this gem, as if your like me sometimes you want a new place but Google doesn’t give you want you want right away.  Plus what if you are on the go?  Who not open the app and find a place?  Hopefully this app will allow me to save faves along with reviews.

I will report back once I have used it and let you know my success.  But if you have it let me know your thoughts in the comments!

Buen provecho!

Dates 2 Save..

Happy Holiday season ya’ll!!! I’m sure that many of you are midstream with holiday shindigs and shenanigans, so Buen Provecho!  If your the person planning said soiree….well may the force be with you.  One of the biggest issues I find when planning my own parties is getting people to RSVP in a timely manner, so that I know how much food to cook. or alcohol to buy. (and my friends are savages for food and dranks….)

So I got ‘ta thinking about New Years and planning a paaaaarty.  Heeello Pinterest! If you need to find ideas and inspo this be the place of all things DIY, cooking, random ish and all easily accessible via tags and key words (kinda like SEO).  So I started collecting ideas for NYE ideas, but then I was like all these ideas are great for any kind of party or even a WEDDING! See what I gathered so far right hurr.

I think the thing that I like most about the board is that they are colors and ideas that work well for anything.  Some of the pins are wedding related, but you could do a birthday, black tie, or a cocktail party.

So after trolling the pin for an ungodly amount of time, I started thinking about save the dates and invitations.  I mean there HAS to be an easier way than going to a stationary store (yes, they DO exist!), something app related y a know.  Cause lets face it, in this day and age if there isnt an app, your going the way of the dodo.  And what did I remember….my  paperless post app! Bazinga! Doneish…..

I was introduced to this a few years a ago via a hostess for a Chloe+Isabel party I did, and well like most relationships it started rocky, but nooooooooow I’m in love with paperless post app.  I mean they have a traditional website, but thats like so 90’s.  The great thing about this company is not only do they do E invitations, but they also do physical invitations. So if you need to send invites or a save the date, say for a wedding, birthday, fancy event, sweet 16, quinceanera, dinner party, a “screw it I’m fabulous” party or really anything they’ve got you covered.

So you can create an awesome save the date and either email it or request to have it printed, you can personalize it with your own photos.  It’s all pretty easy add the copy (like what you want to say) and viola done.  So head on over and check them out, and download that app!  Make your future invites easy peasy with Paperless Post!

Oh Snap! My Nails

I’m sure at one point we’ve all gotten a  mani, heard about jam berry or tried to do DIY nail art.  But the problem is either time, ideas, or stuck with whatever is in stock. So the other week I was on a plane flying home to Arizona and was reading the AA magazine when I came across this article about nail art and this app call Nail Snaps.  Nail snaps allows you to take an image and have it printed onto adhesives for your nails.  Way frickn cool! So all you do is download the app, pick a design, size and adjust it and viola new nail art.  The cool thing is that you can be unique and do what YOU like versus having to pick from pre selected designs (BORING!).

So check out the page, download the app and get on your way to creating custom nail art.  I’m going to order and let you guys know how it all turns out! And if you join check me out!
