Ipad Mini and Kate Spade Giveaway!

iPad Min + Kate Spade Giveaway 

Hi! It's time for a massive giveaway brought to you by Angie from My So-Called Chaos, myself, and a few other fabulous bloggers who've joined us this month. For the prize this month, Angie has chosen to give one lucky winner an iPad Mini and a Kate Spade Cedar Street Keyboard Folio. Before we get down to the prize, the prize sponsors have been asked to share what their favorite app is on their mobile device, and why. I love this question because it gives us an idea of what apps or social networks to pay attention to, as well as recommendations we should try for ourselves!

What is Your Favorite Mobile App?

Answer: A Social Media App

"My favorite app on my is definitely twitter because it allows me to communicate with my friends, family, and other bloggers!" - Kaci from Earth to Kace "I love Twitter. I can keep up with friends and the news all in one easy place." - Jen from Injenious Life


"Snapchat! I absolutely love being able to snap random pictures to send out to my friends. I also follow a lot of bloggers so seeing the un-edited sides to them is really neat!" - Sarah of Sarah Emily Blogs "Snapchat! I love that I can be a little more goofy and interact one on one with followers. Life isn't a perfectly edited photo and with snapchat you get to see the real side." - January from The Bouncy Ponytail


"Instagram because I love looking at everyone's beautiful photos." - Alexis from Chemistry Cachet "Instagram! I love finding new people to follow so I can get even more travel inspiration." - Natalie from Cosmos Mariners "My favorite app is Instagram.

It's my way of journaling my life and to me, it's so much easier than writing in a paper journal!" - Kim from United Moms Network "Instagram because a picture is worth a thousand words." - Linda from Brunch 'N Bites "My favourite app is a tie - Instagram - because of my love of photography and beautifully curated visuals and Periscope - I love the interaction on this platform and the sense of community it fosters, the boost of creativity it provides by allowing us to be exposed to a diversity of people and perspectives." - Tript of Footnotes and Finds "It's a tie between my city's transit app (so I'm never late for work) and Instagram (so I can browse some beautiful photos on my hour-long commute to and from work)." - Mar from T.O. & fro "I love Instagram! It's fun to see quick photo updates of people and find inspiration, discover new products, and share highlights from my life." - Lindsay from Lindsay Satmary

I love using it to edit and add some creativity to my photos." - Brianne of Everyday Runaway "PicTapGo - it makes editing photos easy! I especially love the preview it gives of each filter, so I can identify what I want the picture to look like even if I can't describe it."

Answer: Other Apps

"Besides the usual social media apps, I find myself clicking on this app called Neko Atsume at least a couple of times a day. How to describe it... hmm. Well, it's a ridiculous little cat game where you set out food and toys in hopes of attracting cats to your yard. They show up, eat food, play with the toys, and they have cute little butt holes. That's reason enough, right? I swear, I'm not crazy..." - Kimi from Kimi Who "I've been HUGELY addicted to the Covet Fashion app for some reason. It's kind of embarrassing, but I can't stop creating outfits. I even spent a couple bucks on it." - Anna from Anna in Wonderland "My favorite app is my Kindle app. I love being able to carry a million books right on my phone!" - Alicia of Snowstorm "MLB app or Disneyland app. I am obsessed with Disneyland and the St Cardinals." - Dianna of Whatever Dee-Dee Wants "My favorite app is Timehop! I love getting to look back at my good memories!" - Lucy of Coffee with Us 3 "Fitbit is my favorite app right now. I love tracking my steps each day and seeing how I compare to my family and friends!" - Jill of Run Eat Snap "Ibotta - I love it because it helps me save money! I can use a little more of that." - Kathleen from Fearlessly Creative Mammas "Calm because you can relax for 5 minutes hearing the sound of the rain." - Caterinea from Kate/idoscope "I love my Netflix app. We only have 1 TV in the house and I am all about killing two birds with one stone type of gal. When I'm cooking dinner, folding laundry, or doing dishes, I can watch one of my shows while maintaining my desire for a clean house. " - Amanda from Green Tea and Cotton

  1. oh how i love instagram...I was a long opposer of facebook, and then i stumbled on to instagram, and the pictures and beautiful glimpses into the lives of my favorite artists and bloggers, and that was it for me. I would love a little tablet of my own! something just for me ( mom of four can you tell?)

  2. It would be so handy where I work to be able to check emails. I am part of academic support in an Elementary school. The computers are always being used by the students and staff. Having my own would mean I could access when it was convenient for me, not when a computer is available.

  3. Snapchat is the best thing that ever happened to me. It makes me laugh and keeps me entertained
