This new Apple update has to be my favorite one yet (the organizational freak is dying inside). Now you’re able to organize your phone while sprinkling inspiration throughout. It’s what we never expected. You’re now able to have a phone and a vision board in one. And today, I’m sharing what’s on my iPhone!
From my favorite pictures to my favorite apps, I have it all for you! So keep on reading to have your phone look similar to mine.
My home screen is obviously the first thing I look at when unlocking my phone. Because of that, I wanted this to have everything I need and in black and white. Starting off, I have a calendar at the top showing the day and date to keep me on schedule. Under that, I have my everyday apps (listed below for y’all).
Personally, I like to have my activity tracker in plain sight to encourage me to get up and move when I need to. For that added boost of motivation, I have a “girl boss” image at the bottom. For your home screen, I suggest having all your go-to apps, tools, and motivation to keep you on track throughout the day. Listed below are all my favs:
Social Networking (duh):
Shopping (also duh):
Finance (go-to budgeting on the fly):
- Bank accounts: I have my savings, checking, and student loan apps.
- Mint budgeting app
- Venmo, etc.
Health & Fitness:
- Flo: Perfect for tracking your period.
- Sezzy Timer: Great for at-home workouts.
- Zero, etc.: Useful tool when tracking my fasting periods.
For the second screen, I have all the additional apps that didn’t make the cut. They’re the ones that I use, but not that often. I also sprinkled more inspo pictures to help me keep on keeping on. I absolutely love the clouds, girl boss quotes, stick figure, and the quote to do it for yourself. Honestly, I like to post inspirational and motivational stuff everywhere I can.
- Podcasting: I’m always listening to new stuff!
- Clock: Use daily for alarm clocks.
- Calendar, etc.
Photo & Video:
- Lightroom: What I use to edit my Instagram photos.
- A Design Kit: A fun tool to add a more creative touch to pictures.
-1 Home Screen (The Search Page)
Now, this is the screen you get when you swipe one right from your home screen. I’ve got mine set up to show my favorite podcasts at the top, my phone usage throughout the day/week, my battery levels, music, and current location.
The line up:
- Podcast: Like I said, always listening to podcasts on the fly.
- Phone usage time: Love to see when and where I’ve been spending too much time on my phone.
- Battery levels | Music: Easy access to battery usage and my go-music.
- Location: I honestly don’t know why I have this there, but I do and it looks pretty cool too.
+1 Home Screen (The Apps Page)
This is the page you get when you swipe as far as you can left. I don’t really think you’re able to adjust this screen, but I thought I would throw it in into the mix. As of right now, this list my most-used apps. And those are as follows:
- Etsy: Looking at wayyyy too many jewelry favs.
- Google Sheets: For my weekly budget meetings with myself + on the go expense tracking.
- Calculator, etc.
3 Steps to Creating Your Own iPhone Vision Board
Now, you may be wondering how in the heckkinbob I got my phone to look like this. Thankfully, after watching Nicole Guerriero YouTube video on doing this myself, I figured it out! You can take my tips here or watch her video linked above.
Download the right app
Widgetsmith is the app. Once you’ve downloaded it to your phone, it’s rather easy! You’re able to pick your widget size and tool/picture. After doing that, you can go to your home screen, hold a finger on your home screen and scroll down to “add widget.” At this point, your Widgetsmith app should be listed where you’re able to add whatever widget you desire!
Personally, I love all black and white things. With that being said, I went straight to Pinterest and looked up “black and white aesthetic.” I saved a ton of images to my camera roll that I liked and looked up various other search strings for more inspo ~ “boss babe quotes” being one.
Start plugin and playing
Then, you go back to the app to fill in all the image widgets you’d like. As you can see on my phone, I have four small picture widget ~ 1 on the home screen and 3 on the 2nd screen. I also have my activity tracker as a small widget and my calendar as a medium widget created through Widgetsmith. Once you’ve chosen your widget design, you’re able to finagle with the colors and design before adding it to your screen.
I hope y’all organizational freaks like me loved this update as much as me!
