I have recently stumbled on to some great apps for the home that I am a wee bit obsessed with, so I thought I'd share them with you in case you are looking for more things in your day to suck up your time. Oh and by the way, all of these have full websites as well. So go check 'em out and learn new things!
BRIT + CO is a great inspiration and tutorial site that encompasses all things domestic. Brit and her team post on everything from decor to recipes to fashion to health to style and even technology. If that's not enough she sells BRIT KITS where you receive a month of DIY projects filled with materials, instructions and surprise goodies.
Here are a few examples of what you will find on BRIT + CO:

Like I said before you can check out the site on your computer or as an app on your phone or tablet. Be forewarned it can lead you down the rabbit hole pretty quickly. I have no idea where some of these entrepreneurial ladies find the time to pump out all of this great info, but I'm glad they do.
Gadget Flow is a site run by three people who scour the interwebs and report back on the coolest gadgets they can find out there. I got seriously lost on here a few days back. It was too fun and now I have a new bookmark folder filled with future purchases waiting to happen. FYI, a good number of the items on the site are super geeky but that's why I love them. I think its a great place to find unique gifts that bring out the inner-geek in all of us.
