It’s a fact of modern life: we’re on our phones ALL the time. They’ve become seamlessly integrated into our daily habits, something we pick up so often we don’t even notice.
We included a leather phone case in the 2017 collection because we felt the need for a classic, high quality and high style accessory to protect and tote our phones. Something so ever-present in our lives should look great. It’s also seriously functional. The snap-close cover holds cards and cash so you can grab-and-go with all your essentials in one sleek piece.
In the spirit of accepting our utter dependence on these devices, we asked around the r+h offices, “What’s on your phone? What are you using and loving lately?” Below – the apps we can’t get enough of.
“Spotify running! You start running and Spotify plays music that matches your tempo. They have tons of different themes to choose from. They even have one called “The Chase” that mixes action movie music so you feel like you’re actually in one.”
“I use Feedly to catch up on the latest news and posts. I am able to group by topic and add different sources based on my interests, then go through them as I have time.”
“I love Snapseed for editing photos. I can take an image from dark and shadowy to bright and airy without photoshop.”
“Podcasts. I drive an average of 75 miles a day and had been purchasing audiobooks for the ride. Now, with a few clicks, I can listen and learn, in my car!! Very nice and wide variety to listen to.”
“Waze – I happen to be a bit of a speed demon, and I love using this app because it is about 85% accurate to let you know if there is a cop sitting up the road. If there is road construction, it will change your route so you can avoid it and you can add your favorite addresses so you can just tell it to go to “Courtney & Derek’s House”.
“The app I use a lot on my phone is the 8MM Vintage Camera. I love it because as an amateur filmmaker, it allows me to capture the beauty and mood of vintage movies in real time.”
“The Crate & Barrel wedding registry for obvious reasons :)”
“The Google Calendar app. I finally found a calendar that is easy to use and looks great! I can’t imagine how I kept track of anything before I got it.”
“Uber Eats! We finally got Uber Eats in our area and they deliver donuts from one of our favorite spots! It’s slowly becoming a Sunday morning tradition. The best part is we can stay in our PJs.”
“I love listening to audiobooks on Audible. I just listened to Rosamund Pike narrate Pride and Prejudice.”
“Spotify Discover Weekly. Every week, they create a new playlist for you based on your likes and what’s new. It never disappoints.”
“The podcast Ana Faris Is Unqualified. She has a different celebrity co-host for each episode- it’s light hearted and so funny!”
“The Venmo app! If you don’t have it- you need it! It’s the easiest way to electronically transfer money to or request payment from your friends. There’s no service charge and you’ll never have to awkwardly figure out how to split a restaurant check again.”
Now it’s your turn. We want to know what apps you’re loving – let us know on social @russellandhazel. And don’t forget to check out the gorgeous new arrivals in our leather collection!
