apps, extensions, and tools – oh my!

Hello and welcome to another edition of apps + chrome extensions + nifty sites with Vicky!  I honestly need to sit down and come up with a better name for these things, it’s getting to be kind of a mouthful. I know I normally do these separately but I haven’t been doing anything drastically different lately to warrant two posts.

tl;dr of this post – icon pack + calendar widget // photo editing // new tab page that swears at you // i miss jobmine // infographics

If any of the above even vaguely interest you keep on reading!

confirmation of life + #onrepeat november

Contrary to my radio silence on this blog since the beginning of the month I’m still here!

It’s much longer than my playlists usually are because I’ve been building it up for a few weeks now but I hope you enjoy it!

#onrepeat 10/3

I generally like matching my music to the weather but it’s been so up and down in the last couple weeks that my playlists feel even more scattered than they normally do. I also switched from my Spotify Premium account to a Google Play Music account (just another way for Google to own my life) so it’s been a fun experience learning how the two services differ.
