As we gear up for Thanksgiving next week, the proximity of December shopping and gift giving is right around the corner. Now I'm sure that many of you are completely organized when it comes to your holiday shopping, but if you are anything like me, than you may need a little extra help when it comes to tracking your gift list and budget! I promise I have the best of intentions when it comes to shopping, but it's just so easy to forget who you have shopped for on your list, and before you know it you have bought the same person two gifts and another person on your list is sadly left without even a stocking stuffer!That is why I am so excited about the free Gift List app new to the iPhone this fall. The Gift List application by Gennubi is a a free app that will help you
:- track gift lists by person- track budgets and amount spent per person- keep notes about each gift purchased- check off gifts you have purchased- keep a running tally of money spent
I hope this helps you stay organized this month, and also helps you enjoy the holiday shopping experience a little more than you might have before!
Happy shopping and gift giving!
Do you ever feel like everyone has better luck than you do when it comes to picking up antiques and vintage pieces at tag and estate sales? How does everyone hear about these sales so quickly?
Tag and Estate sales can be a treasure trove of great antique and home accessories! Like this amazing sale that Matters of Style recently wrote about
...MOS Charlotte found so many great pieces at this sale that she just accidentally stumbled upon!Because I feel like I'm always a day late when it comes to finding tag and estate sales, I am so excited about this free app that I just found: Yard Sale Mapper!
This app gathers listings for nearby yard sales, tag sales, and garage sales from Craiglist and transfers them to a Google map so that you can efficiently plan a whole day of yard sale shopping!
What a great way to plan a Saturday of thrifting...and as always, it's free!
For anyone who has ever spent hours trying to find just the right paint, you know what a painstaking process it can be trying to find just the right color to complement your room or home.
Well for those of us with an iPhone, Benjamin Moore has made this process a little easier with their "Color Capture" application.
This handy app allows you to take a picture of anything, and it will match your picture to a selection of Benjamin Moore paints that are most like your picture. So if you are in a store and love the coral hue of a cashmere sweater, or if you in the Caribbean and want a paint that remind you of the turquoise waters you have spent the week swimming in, this is the app for you! It also allows you to store a record of favorite paints, and find local retailers that will carry your selected paint color.
Here is a short video by Benjamin Moore that will show you just how this fun app works!
How many times have you been standing in the beauty aisle at your local drugstore and you want to buy a new bottle of nail polish, but you just don't know which one to choose?
Sometimes polish can play tricks on the eye when it is in the jar! Even if you like the way a polish looks on the shelf, it is hard to know what it will look like when it is out of the bottle, and on your pretty little fingernails!
That is why I love this clever and free iPhone app from one of my favorite polish lines, OPI. The OPI iPhone app allows you to virtually try on OPI's entire collection of polishes, while also customizing the experience by allowing you to choose your specific skin tone. Here are two of my favorite polishes...
I love Cajun Shrimp for Summer...
And now that it is getting cooler out, I can't wait to start wearing You Don't Know Jacques!
And if you don't have an iPhone don't despair!You can always take advantage of OPI's virtual nail colors by just visiting the OPI website!Now if only I could get a virtual manicure online...unfortunately I don't think that will be happening anytime soon!
