WHAT'S ON MY IPHONE


"what's on my iphone" has become a rather popular youtube video where guru's share...well, what's on their iphone, and though i may end up filming the video as well, i felt it would be a lot easier to share my favorite apps, current backgrounds, & phone case in blogger style.

let's start off with my phone case…


i'm absolutely in looove with this floral phone case from charlotte russe, it was a hand-me-down from my friend when she upgraded to iphone 5 (one day, one day…)

i much prefer a rubber phone case like this one. for whatever reason, i feel like they're more protective + they're super easy to clean. every now & then...okay, i'll be honest, everyday (i'm a bit major clean freak) i clean it with soap & warm water.

extra cleaning tip: i've become obsessed with cleaning my iphone 4 with clorox disinfecting wipes nearly every night. just think about all the places you set your phone throughout the day, the greasy table at a restaurant or dare i say the toilet paper dispenser in a public bathroom (ahhh!)
we're constantly touching our phones & then other parts of our body's (face, eyes, nose, mouth) or holding them directly to our faces during a phone call, keep those sucker's cleeeean!

& now for my current backgrounds…

home screen background
i found this floral image on pinterest & immediately pinned it to my spring inspiration board. i felt it was the perfect spring update for my phone…saved that sucker to camera roll & set as home screen in seconds.

for my lock screen, i used one of my favorite apps, "monogram it," to jazz up the floral pic with my monogram, can someone say "scuuute?" (if you recognized that reference, you're awesome!)

& finally, all my apps…


when i first unlock my phone, this is what i see. for the most part, i kept the apps in their original order, it just made sense to me. my calendar, clock, notes, reminders, maps, & passbook are grouped into one section, "productivity," & my contacts, calculator, compass, & voice memos are grouped into "utilities."


on the next "page," (not sure what it is actually called haha) i have all of my other apps. most are grouped into categories & the categories are in alphabetical order. single apps that did not seem to fit into a category are left alone & organized into alphabetical order after the categorized apps. the only exception is the last row of apps, where i placed direct links to my blog & youtube channel so i could access them easily.

the categorized apps will all be addressed separately & their info will be listed there. here is the info for the single apps so you may learn more about them & download them if you would like:
