I had a business meeting/girl gossip fest with a colleague yesterday and when we were going over our to-do’s for a particular project, she looked  at me and said, “I need the Shortcut to Fabulous on Apps…what apps do you have on your phone?”  Behold…below I tell you what I’ve got and why. Also, I want to take this time to announce a format change on my blog. In an effort to bring you better content that will really give you all the Shortcuts to Fabulous living you need, I will now be posting only once per week for my national readers and twice (including Miami Monday) for my Miami readers.
