4 Incredibly Useful Time Saving Apps


This app is my favorite. With a jam packed schedule and laziness after a long day at work, Instacart has saved me so much time and energy.  Get your groceries delivered within the hour or the time of your choice. I'll usually place my order before I set out for the day, and have them deliver when I get home at night. Click here to get $10 off and free delivery for your first order! Trust me, it's worth it!


Get your dry cleaning and/or laundry picked up and delivered back to you all nice, clean and ironed within a day. I haven't actually tried this one yet, but I am in the midst of gathering all the clothes I need to dry clean.


Purchase food or products from any restaurant or store from around the city and have it delivered within the hour. Whaatt! This just opened up a lot more options for take out! Wait... they deliver Starbucks too? I'm about to be super lazy..

3 girls 3 things

This reminds me of one of my assignments from an art class back in junior year of college - our professor wanted us to "fill a space". This would have been a really cool idea to do! I ended up felling my belly button with a bunch of random things and documenting it on a huge grid - maybe I'll post it sometime if I manage to find some pictures of it! My favorites from this artist are probably the origami fan ones (I love the third one for its colors and the water and rope one for its creativity) and the paper clip one (how did she climb in there?) The one with the rats and the caterpillar one kind of gives me the chills...!

My parents always told me that one of the most important things to think about before you renovate your apartment is where you'd like your safe to be and whether it needs to be part of the reno.  The best safes in the house are apparently things that don't look like safes, and placed in spots that don't seem safe!  This guy shares a really creative idea, but if you really think about it, I would say best for hiding only kids Halloween candies as he suggested, nothing much more than that since it can't be locked and a housekeeper would probably find that within the first month on the job =p.

My friend showed this to me about 2 years ago but I recently thought about them again. If you're down for a good laugh, you need to watch this! These two guys are hilarious! If you've got the time, you should also check out their other videos! Another favorite of mine is the Finger War.

3 girls 3 things

Hey everyone! So we decided to start this column called 3 girls 3 things because we always find neat links but never know where to share it! I hope you like it and feel free to give us some feedback on what you’d like us to share :)

Louis CK on the difference between boys and girls. 
With #2 arriving in 2 weeks, I guess I have a lot to look forward to with 2 girls in the house!

My boyfriend and I have been seeking DIY projects after our first one - sprucing up an original-style Hong Kong mailbox. (photos to come) I needed some more inspiration on what to do next and I stumbled on this one.  I don't have a laundry bag stand around, but this project really made me think about what I could do with some old /somewhat broken household items before I toss them.  Check it out, pretty ingenious to reuse this simple laundry bag stand and turn it into a stylish modern table stand! Love it. But...I wonder how stable it is.

Maybe you've seen this, maybe you haven't.. but either way, hey it's pretty darn cool! The only thing I worry about is giving this all in one credit card to the server or salesmen and having them accidentally swipe it incorrectly!
