Breakfast, This AM

February 22, 2016

Happy Monday my loves! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! 

I don’t know about you – but I am dreading these last two weeks of midterms, before spring break. I need a vacation (and warmer weather)! I can’t complain that much though. I have so many trips planned this year, and I can’t wait to share it all with you! BUT, this post is not about my trips, or how much I’ve been dreading school. This post is about what I do in the mornings, right when I wake up.

When I wake up, I immediately roll over, grab my phone and scroll away. If I am not scrolling through my Instagram or Facebook feed, I am looking at the top news stories. I am usually the one at the table that goes “Ohhhh, I didn’t know that was on the news” haha! I find little-to-no interest in news. However, my in-laws to be love all of that. They will sit at the breakfast table and talk forever about anything and everything. My father-in-law absolutely loves politics and news stories. So, I have been trying to keep up with the news as much as I can. When I call him, I want to be able to hold a conversation, you know?

(Disclaimer: I was requested by Refinery 29 to provide an honest review on this product)

Refinery 29 has launched a new app called “This Am”, This app simplifies my mornings! The app is beautifully designed, without any distracting pop up adds. I hate those free news apps, where you literally have to close a million pop ups to get to the actual article (like no, I don’t want to download FarmVille). I don’t have that problem with This Am. The best part? The app doesn’t just slam you with all the news in the world, it provides you with the top 8 news stories – from breaking news to entertainment – concisely summarized for reading ease (if you’d like to read more in depth, then you just tap on that particular news story and it will direct you to the actual news article). The app is easy to you use. Like literally. THE easiest. You swipe through 8 different cards with headline and a summary on each card, an additional card lets you know that you’re done. I love this thing (it’s addicting). Only downfall? The app is only available for the iPhone users (sigh).

SO, don’t be clueless , and download this app. Seriosuly, get to it. Lol. Trust me, it will save you from the embarrassment of being so behind on life.
