Some of these apps you may have never heard of and some of them are very well known but all of them are game-changers when it comes to making an amazing home screen.

Pinterest is an app that you can use to get inspiration, background photos, icons to use as app covers, widget photos, and everything else.

It is truly so underrated and usually skipped over when thinking about updating the home screen. But don't forget about it!

Widgetsmith is the key to customizing your lock screen. it is how you get all of those pictures, calendars and slideshows on your home screen. It is also free to download and super easy to use!

Shortcuts is automatically downloaded on your phone since it is an Apple app and this is how you get the images on the apps or app covers.

You can use shortcuts to also create automations for Siri to say when you plug in your phone, your battery reaches a certain amount or the weather changes.

This is a little time consuming but so worth it to get that aesthetic!

Color Widgets

Color Widgets is another app that you can use to get the photos, calendars and battery percentages on your home screen but it doesn't have as many abilities like adding pictures as widgets like Widgetsmith.

Just like Widgetsmith it is free to download and easy to use but in my opinion if you were to only download one, Widgetsmith is the way to go.

VSCO has been around for a while and is very popular but it is often forgotten when it comes to home screens.

You can always edit, crop, rotate, add grain and do sooo many more things in VSCO to any pictures you take or find on the internet or snag from Pinterest.

This is especially helpful if you want a certain look that requires uniformity or a certain filter or high contrast etc.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
