Poshmark: Poshmark is the go-to market for shopping
other people’s closets and finding pre-loved items. A couple of my favorite purchases: a replacement for a watch I’d
lost and a t-shirt that said, “Who made my clothes?”
Good on You: This rating app for fashion brands based on
ethical and sustainable practices has been endorsed by
Emma Watson. Whether I’m shopping second-hand or firsthand, I use this app to check on the integrity of the brand.
Philips Hue: I use this app to control lights in my home.
I have smart lights from Philips Hue in my bedroom and
kitchen, which I can turn on from work or from another
room in the house.
Kasa Smart: This smart home app lets me turn a couple
of smart plugs in my house on and off on a schedule. I am
excited about the possibilities.
Amazon Alexa: Alexa can turn my smart lights on and off
on command and tell me when my packages from Amazon
are delivered. Amazon’s assistant can even read my Kindle
books, something my iPhone can’t do on its own.
Forest: A lifestyle coach suggested Forest to me; it en-
courages you to stay focused and be present. The app
works with an organization called Trees for the Future and
inspires people to curtail phone usage by planting trees in
the app as well as in reality.
Ayurvedic Diet: Thanks to this app, all the recipes sorted
by Ayurvedic body types are on my phone, just the kind of
convenience I desire. My favorite are the breakfast recipes
Bellabeat: Health Coach: This app works with Bellabeat’s
smart jewelry. It’s my go-to app to keep track of my general wellbeing, including my sleep, water intake, exercise,
meditation, and monthly cycle.
