1# Best Apps of 2016

12:30 PM

Hello dears how are you?
Today I will start a tag ( created by me) with my favourite things of 2016. 
The goal is to show you things that I used and liked during the year, like apps, series, books, makeup, clothes, countries, and whatever I decide. 
There are really no rules, I just want to share things that hopefully will be also useful for you. 
I decided to start with my favourite apps of 2016, the ones that I used the most!

1. Sweat ( or Sweat with Kayla)

If you don't know BBG or Kayla Itsines you can stop now what you are doing are go google it! Kayla is amazing she created the BBG (Bikini body guide) for women that don't have time to go to the gym and want to be fit, the program consist in 3 days of resistance training and 3 days of liss (cardio) and you can do everything at home in less than half an hour. 
When one of my co-workers told me about this BBG program I never imagined how big this was. BBG is not only an app or a book it's a huge community of inspirational women that support each other everyday. When you are a mom or you have a full time job sometimes is very difficult to find time to exercise. This happened to me, when I start my job, one year ago, I stopped with the gym and and started spending my days seated in front of the computer, the only exercise I did was going to the printer ahahahah. 
In 5 months I felt the difference on my body I gain a lot of weight and I was not strong anymore. I didn't had time to go to the gym.
 I leave home everyday at 7 a.m. and I arrive at 7:30 p.m. When I arrive at home I only have time to do something to eat watch a little bit of tv and I go to bed because usually I'm exhausted. 
Then I found BBG, my colleague gave me a copy of the book and later I downloaded the app. I don't have time to go to the gym but I always have 30 minutes to do my exercises at home. 
I feel stronger than ever, even when I spent all my days at the gym, and I'm getting back my old shape. 
The first week was horrible I never felt so much pain in my life after an exercise, but then your body will get use to it. The price is 54,40€ for 3 months and believe me, it's totally worth it. 
You also have a meal plan if you want and a planner for your exercises. 
If I did not convinced you just go on instagram and look for #bbg! 


I think Tidal is the app that I use most during my day. I got Tidal when Beyonce realised her new album ( well done Jay Z) and since then I never stopped using it! I spend 3 hours of my day between trains and buses and I could never spend one hour on the train without music. In fact the first thing I do when I wake up is to open Tidal and start listening music. You can do your own playlist, you can listen to the latest hits and you have also playlists from Tidal.  I pay 9.90 € monthly for the subscription and I'm very happy with it.

3. Booking + Trip Adviser 

I traveled quite a lot this year so I had to book a lot of places to stay as well. I booked my hotels to  Amsterdam and Barcelona through Booking I was very pleased with the results. It's always good to see first the ratings and the comments of the hotels, especially if they are expensive. I also used trip adviser a lot this year, in Portugal and Barcelona I always checked the best restaurants near me on Trip adviser first and they were always good. I think it's great that we have this kind of information now especially when you don't know the city and you need some guidance to avoid bad experiences. 

4. Instagram

I still think that Instagram is the faster and easier way to share moments with people. I love sharing my favourite photos with my friends and check their latest photos as well. It's also the best way to follow bloggers that I love and people that I admire without having all the publicity and crapy talk that we see a lot on facebook. But I guess I don't need to talk a lot about Instagram because all off you know how it works, right? 

5. Netflix 

This is not a surprise to anyone right? Who does not like Netflix? I spend all my Sundays watching it and it's just the best company ever.  I love that we can watch the old and the new series and Netflix originals are becoming better and better as well. I pay around 10€ per month and again it's totally worth it.

What about you, which one is your favourite app at the moment?
