Free Apps I Use On My Phone Everyday…

It’s been quite a few months since I did an app update, so I felt like it was time to share some of those apps I use daily on my phone.

(Disclosure: this blog contains affiliate links. This means that I get commission from any link you click on…but of course it’s at no cost to you!

  1. Interval Timer: this is a free app that helps people with circuit training and workouts. You can create your own interval times, which makes it so much easier to do any sort of interval training. Go grab it!

2. Signal: We have found that signal is a great way to text and communicate with each other as a family. What we really enjoy about signal is that the videos sent are much clearer than when sent through regular text messaging. This is also free so check it out!

3. My Fitness Pal: As I am working on getting back to pre-baby-weight, tracking my food on My fitness pal has been awesome! This free app keeps me in check with what I am eating and I love it! Not only is this app free, but it’s easy and simple to use!

4. WordPress: The wordpress app is another free app, and if you happen to blog through wordpress, it’s such a wonderful resource to have. The wordpress app makes it possible to post a blog post, check stats, and more. I check this app daily and it’s so handy to have on my phone!

5. Renpho: I have mentioned this app before with a fitness post, but the renpho app goes hand-in-hand with my renpho scale. I absolutely love this app because it not only shows your weight, it also shows your metabolic age, body fat percentage, trends, and more. I purchased the scale on Amazon for about $30.00 and this free app that comes with the scale is wonderful!

6. Gospel Library: As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, this gospel library app is amazing! Not only does this app have the scriptures, it has the ensign, hymn book, church handbooks, a place for notes, study plans and more. I read my scriptures and mark them through this app every night and love it. And of course –it’s free!

So now the question is, what free apps do you use on your phone everyday?

I would love to hear in the comments below.

Also, I hope sharing these free apps can be helpful to you.

This will be a continual topic of conversation on the blog.

Until next time!

Life Lately

How is your January looking ?

For our little family … we are getting back into a routine with things.

Makell loves baby cuddles.

My oldest son goes to kindergarten Monday-Thursday, and I’m learning how to teach him on Fridays… and it’s been fun!

My son has learned a lot this year —it’s crazy to see him sounding out words and recognizing words. He doesn’t always want to do school work, and I don’t push him too much because at the end of the day, I want school to be fun for him.

Cade -5 years old loving his Star Wars book

Cade, our boy, has a neighbor friend that comes to play most days .. and he looks forward to playing everyday. Cade is our social boy and loves people.

Makell— (3 years) our middle child and oldest daughter, she has enjoyed preschool two days a week.

Makell loves to be like her big brother so she feels pretty special to be in school.

Makell loves art and drawing and has learned to write an “M” and an “O” and an “A” on papers.

Makell is so nurturing and caring. Nobody takes care of their dolls better than Makell. Makell’s baby dolls are always wrapped up nice sleeping ..all over the house.

We find piles of dolls or stuffed animals neatly placed throughout the house.

Makell also has a sassy side and I would put money down that she has the loudest cry of all the girls out there.

We love our sweet Makell and it’s fun listening to her talk and grow.. her vocabulary has grown so much in the past little while.

Makell- 3 yrs. old

Taya can be summed up as cute and busy!

She started taking a few walking steps at Thanksgiving and is walking longer and longer now.

She opens and dumps out anything she can, she tries to eat everything, and she is copying many of the words we say.

Taya is known as “smiley” because she truly is smiling about 90% of the time.. and we love that about her.

Yes she can get mad when she doesn’t get her way, but we love her so much.

Taya 14 months

My husband stays busy with a busy job, church calling, and he’s such a hard working father and husband.

My husband, Brad, is handy and can figure out how to build or fix about anything.

He has learned to bake bread and that is our family’s Sunday activity… and then we deliver a bunch of bread to people who may enjoy it.

Brad is so good at serving others, his focus is always on how he can help others.

Brad is great to get a workout in, and he also takes time to study his scriptures daily and write in his journal.

As for me.. my cute little family keeps me busy! There is never a dull moment with three young kids.

I always challenge myself throughout the day to tidy something in the house … just because these days we have a lot of toys everywhere and if I can find a few spaces to de-clutter, I feel accomplished and more organized.

I love to cook and enjoy trying new gluten-free recipes.

I also stay busy with a church calling. My goal this month has been to strengthen myself spiritually and it’s been so good for me to focus on my spiritual goals.

Mom and baby up early and getting some cuddles.

I am in a workout class and have enjoyed building and strengthening muscles .. as well as losing weight.

This blog always keeps me thinking —and I enjoy the challenge of this blog. I also just love to write.

I have had fun putting makeup on faces … as some of you know I’m a Seint artist.

I have enjoyed watching “The Crown” while folding laundry or while running on the treadmill.

And honestly I can say , life is busy —yet so wonderful all wrapped in one.

I will note, the winter time can be a bit hard on me mentally. Perhaps it’s the lack of sun and being indoors more… but I’m trying to be aware of this factor about myself and push through it.

I talk to my sweet mom pretty much everyday and she is such a sweet and uplifting voice for me.

And I can’t forget how nice it’s been to visit with friends lately, even if it’s Marco Polo.

Our life lately has been wonderful… we look forward to this upcoming year with positivity and happiness.

If I Had Planned My Life Out

If I had planned my life out,

The twists and turns would all be straight

The jagged edges and the rough corners, would be smooth

Only love and never hate.

If I had planned my life out,

There would be endurance involved I’m sure,

But not to the degree that I have experienced it.

There would be more smiles and less weeping.

If I had planned my life out, the blossoms would always be blooming.

The sun would shine indefinitely, and the dark would not destroy the light.


I did not plan my life out, as you know this to be true.

God had a hand in everything, and knew the right thing to do.

He knew I would enjoy the happy, the easier and the calm.

But he knew my strength would not build from these foundations,

So that’s when he sent the storms.

The storms I have felt have been tough, sometimes beaten me to the core.

As I stay close to God in those storms I pray for strength,

At times I wonder if God remembers how much I’ve endured?

When the load feels too heavy, the faith gets me through.

Faith in God always comes through.

Faith in His plan, remembering it was always about His plan and not mine.

No matter the trial or the hardship … there is light in the end, when we move forward with Faith in God and remember his hand is in all things.

If I had planned my life out….

I quickly see, it is not the life that was meant for me.

My joys have been amazing and my happiness has been beyond anything I imagined..

The reason being?

Because I’ve felt the storm, and it made the light and the calmness more amazing in every way.

We build some of our greatest strength, our greatest faith … through the tough times.

Those tough times make the beautiful times magnificent.

And for this I know…

I’m glad I didn’t plan my life out.

Gods plan is best despite the jagged edges and rough corners.

For God will push us and shape us, into the people we were meant to be.

God knows the bigger picture.

And because of this… I’m glad I did not plan my life out.

It’s best this way, for you and for me.

On the 3rd Day of Christmas, A Gift Idea for You!

So again, shipping is not going to work in time.

So instead, let’s think outside the box.

What is a great gift, that doesn’t seem too last minute (even though it somewhat is at this point?;)

An over night stay at an airbnb!

There are so many wonderful airbnb venues to choose from right now.

Good luck and more to come tomorrow!

Some of My Favorite Seint Makeup Items that are a “Must” in my Makeup Bag:

I have been using Seint Makeup for the past two years and I love the products.

It is very hard to pick a few of my favorite Seint items, but here are the items that I felt anyone and everyone would love!

*Note-Seint products currently only ship to the USA and Canada.

(Disclosure: this blog contains affiliate links. This means that I get commission from any link you click on…but of course it’s at no cost to you!)

  1. Bella Bronzer:

This cream bronzer is hands-down the best bronzer I have ever used. The color tone of this bronzer adds such a beautiful glow to the face. I personally use this product all year round.

To purchase click here.

Price: $14.00

2. Blush/Bronzer Brush:

This brush is two-sided (they all are), and it blends amazingly! There is one side that is more dense and it’s perfect for blush and bronzer. The big fluffy side it amazing to blend everything in beautifully.

I feel like everyone should have this brush in their makeup kit!

To purchase this brush, click here.

Price: $36.00

3. Bright Eyes Eyeshadow:

The reason I love bright eyes is because it is flattering on all eyelids…why?

Because it has a subtle shimmer to it that enhances any eye color.

If you don’t like to wear a lot of eyeshadow combos at once, bright eyes is perfect alone.

Just swipe bright eyes across the lid and you will have a subtle, yet beautiful eyeshadow look!

Price: $12.00

To purchase bright eyes, click here.

4. Brush Cleanser

Is it terrible to admit that I didn’t used to clean my brushes all that much?!

It makes me cringe thinking about it now, because our makeup brushes harbor so much bacteria that can be damaging to swipe across out face!

I love Seint’s Brush cleanser.

The brush cleanser is very simple and easy to use.

Simply spray the cleanser onto the brushes, swipe the brushes off on a paper towel or microfiber cloth….and the brushed dry quite quickly.

These cleaner has lasted many quite a few months too!

Price: $24.00

To purchase the brush cleanser, click here.

5. Georgia Illuminator

The Georgia illuminator is so beautiful and provides a gorgeous glow to the face.

Illuminator is lightly placed on the high point of our cheek bones, on our brow bones, down the tip of our nose, and on our cupids bow.

If I have to choose….which is very hard, I would say that anyone and everyone can pull off wearing this beautiful illuminator.

Price: $16.00

To purchase this illuminator, click here.

6. Frenchie Lip & Cheek

The reason I love Frenchie lip and cheek is not just because it’s a beautiful pink for the lips and cheek, but also–this color acts as an undereye concealer!

If you lightly tap some Frenchie under the eye…you will see how well this color can conceal and cover up under eye bags. Who doesn’t love that!

I would suggest Frenchie for anyone and everyone!

Price: $14.00

To purchase Frenchie, click here.

Let me know if you have any questions about these Seint products…I am happy to help!

On the 4th Day of Christmas, A Gift Idea for You..

At this point we are getting a bit too late for shipping to make it in time for Christmas.


We aren’t too late for something else …

Buying someone a YEARS worth of menu plans!

The Six Sisters, have wonderful menu plans you can buy for $8.33 a month or $99.96 for the year!

These menu plans are wonderful because they provide 6 days worth of meal recipes all year long. The plans also include grocery items you will need to buy for the week to make the meals. It provides some side meals along with the dinner meals, and they taste great!

Then you will never wonder what to fix for dinner...and even better, you can print off the recipes and have an entirely new recipe book to use!

They have a variety of meal plans: gluten-free, healthy, and family-friendly meals.

I did this meal plan one year and LOVED it! I still go back to many of the recipes!
