I often get asked what tools I use so I thought I’d create this handy list to share with you. These are all things that I use on a daily basis and love.
This page is a work in progress. I’ll be adding and updating as my workflow changes and I find new things that I love.
Starting a Blog?
If you want to start a blog, use BlueHost for your hosting. They have amazing customer support and can help you through all the steps getting started. And they’ve saved my behind a few times when I made a mistake with coding. I highly recommend BlueHost for your hosting.
And I have a special discounted rate for you. Starting with a self-hosted blog on WordPress is a smart way to go!

Planoly makes great products and has great customer service.
What I love most: Easy to schedule pins, create a schedule based on recommended times in the tool, and recommendations to make my Pinterest boards better.
I love Planoly! It works on desktop, iPad, and smartphone making it super easy to plan and organize Instagram posts. You can find content to regram and schedule your content out over time.
Tools for video and live-steaming:
Arkon Pro Stand – Love that you can stand to live-stream with this! Arkon’s Pro Phone Holder Stand for Live Streamers and Live Video facilitates stable live streaming from an iPhone or Android phone on a kitchen counter, table, desk, floor, workbench, or another flat surface. This stand is especially useful for live streaming by bakers, cooks, artists, crafters, demonstrating, and DIY tutorial or instructional videos where you may want to have an overhead view of your broadcast.
11” Phone Tripod – it has a level!!
Selfie Ring Light – love that this is light and charges via USB.
Sonic Shutter Ultrasonic Remote
Fold-Up Tablet Stand – I use this for my iPad to read comments while I’m live-streaming on my phone.

Canva was my secret weapon for great designs for a long time, then I worked with them as their Head of Social Strategy to help more people learn how to create their own designs.
What I love most: easy to use, great email tutorials, Canva Pro is amazing, and it saves all my designs to reuse and remix later.
Easil’s features are easy to use and make your designs look Pro-quality. Every. Single. Time.
What I love most: Change colors like a whiz with the color palette generator. This automatic feature will help you choose the best colors to go with your design.
My favorite digital to-do-list! I’m becoming obsessed with using Trello.
What I love most: great to work with team members, color-coded checklists, info travels to all my devices (laptop, tablet, and iPhone).
Super helpful for bloggers and writers!
What I love most: makes my writing better! What’s not to love about that?
