I LOVE My iPad Mini!

I LOVE MY iPad Mini!

Before I go on and sing my praise on the iPad Mini, I will be the first to say that I was not an Apple person. As a matter of fact... I am a HUGE contributor of the Android vs. Apple debate. I have an Samsung Galaxy as my personal cell phone and I also carry the iPhone 4 which is for my job. As much as I love my Samsung, I am mostly on my iPhone due to the job I do at work. I've complained tiredlessly about how sucky my iPhone was because it was so "unfriendly" towards me. Thus... my hateful relationship with Apple products began.

Let's fast forward to last week. My hubby has this knack about noticing a lot of what I do. Hanging out at the electronics section everywhere I go was one of the things he notices. As I was looking at the iPads, he finally said "Just get it already! Everytime we're somewhere you head to the iPads and start playing with them." Funny, I didn't noticed that I was doing that myself and just ignored him. Well, my hubby must've gotten sick of "hanging out" with me in the electronics aisle (Not sure why, he's a guy!!), and decided to get it for me that day!

Well... I've had my iPad Mini for a little over a week now and I must say, I think I LOVE Apple now! As a career person, mommy, PhD student, and blogger, there are A LOT of cool apps on there for me to use. Let me share a few of them with you:

We all want to monetize on the internet somehow. Well, Poshmark can help with that. If you're like me and you have a closet full of "stuff" that you don't wear anymore, use Poshmark! Poshmark is a simple and fun way to buy and sell fashion. They hold fashion parties everyday (kinda like a blog party!) where you can network and showcase your items you want to sell. The app is free on your iPhone and iPad.

This is also known as All Women Stalk. Straight from their About Us page, AllWomenStalk.com is your daily scoop of fabulous!  And whether you’re looking for tips on putting together the perfect outfit, or wondering which lipstick is right for your complexion, AllWomenStalk.com is the perfect place to find the answers! I personally like this app because it is an idea generator for me when I am looking to write a blog post. Try it out! It's also free on iPhone and iPad. 

I will admit, I am a secret DIYer and I am also jealous of all the wonderful talent we have in the blogger world! If you're looking for a cool DIY project, look no further, Brit + Co. has a lot of cool simple projects to get you started. Again... also a free app on iPhone and iPad!

So, in my last post, I was seriously complaining about needing a vacation. It also doesn't help when HR sends monthly reminders  stating I need a vacation too! After my heated argument with my hubby that I need some R-N-R, he is slowly warming up to the idea. Believe it or not he's been playing with my iPad too and came across the Airbnb app. Airbnb is a trusted community marketplace for people to list, discover, and book unique accommodations around the world — online or from a mobile phone. Whether an apartment for a night, a castle for a week, or a villa for a month, Airbnb connects people to unique travel experiences, at any price point, in more than 33,000 cities and 192 countries. My hubby has been looking into Corpus Christi as a weekend getaway next weekend. A beach cottage on the beach for $105 a day is not a bad deal! Check this app out if you're looking for a quick getaway. Plus... it's free on iPhone and iPad!

There you have it! My favorite apps from my iPad and why I am starting to love Apple Products. My hubby is an Android loyalist too. I wonder what he will say if I wanted to trade my Samsung in for the iPhone 5? Hmmmm..... 

Any favorite apps you want to share so I can check them out? Let me know!

  2. Hello,

    I'm very much like you in the team Android side of the iphone/android debate. I have the galaxy as well and I love it. Everyone I know says they think the android is so hard to personalize but I completely disagree I think that the android is easier to personalize and navigate. I hope you like you ipad, I went to event this weekend and saw a lot of people with tablets and they all seem to love them.

    1. Hi Emma,

      I will forever be loyal to Android! My Galaxy is the best phone ever! I am still not liking my iPhone that my company gave me. Not so friendly! But my galaxy is soo easy!! The iPad Mini is the BEST! So far the only Apple I LOVE! They're cheaper now too, which is why the hubby got it for me. LOL!

  4. Okay, wish I had an iPad too. I have a Kindle. Limited but fun to use. I hate the commercials at the bottome. It is going to cost me $15 to get rid of them. Do you know if they have google play store versions of the fashion ap?
