Spotlight|Office Inspiration

Hello and welcome to Wednesday!

Days like today remind us how great it is to live in such a beautiful place.  We’re so grateful to be in such a awesome industry with such awesome friends!

As many of ya’ll know, Platinum is expanding and opening up our first branch in Denver, Colorado!  We are so excited and have been busy planning every detail to make this big launch one for the books!  One thing that’s been on our mind is office design!  We’re crazy about awesome office interiors and a good work environment.

We’ve put together a Pinterest board revolving around office design inspiration!  Check it out and enjoy!

'Latvian interior and product designer Anna Butele created a very creative office space for her interior design office in Riga, Latvia' I could easily get loads of work done in a room like this. Very smart, clean and sophisticated. The colours are relaxing too... Love it

Love the idea of a desk facing outward, even in a small space. Also a big gorgeous monitor. Maybe someday, in a different place! :)

5 Everyday Apps for The Wedding Professional!

Hello!

We hope you all had a fantastic weekend.  Monday sure snuck up on us, but we’re slowly stepping into the day with a big fresh hot cup of coffee 🙂  Is there really any other way for someone to start their day?

Technology is such a huge part of our world now a days, and in the past couple of months we’ve been discovering new apps to help us get through our busy lives.  We’ve got a long list, but we’ve narrowed it down to five!  Check out these awesome apps to help the everyday wedding professional make their life just a tad bit easier!  Enjoy!

1.  Evernote-

Evernote is a huge help to us!  We store receipts, notes, reminders, and our to-do lists!  You can even have work chats and share what you’ve been working on with your co-workers.

Super great tips for using Evernote )which I love!) - 20 Tips Every Evernote User Must Know by PC News

2.  IFTT-(If This Then That)

We LOVE LOVE LOVE this app!!  You can pretty much do anything here!  Want to link your Instagram through your Twitter, but don’t want your followers to have to follow a link??  IFTT will tweet your insta’s as a Twit pic!  That’s not the only thing though! If you accept a payment through the Square app, IFTT will automatically add a row to a spreadsheet in your Google Drive.  Check out this awesome app!  You’ll spend hours just looking at all the recipes they have to offer.

3.  Expensify

Not only is this app great for the travelling professional, but also for ANY professional!  Everyone has budgets, and tracking them isn’t always the easiest for best part of your job! Expensify makes things simple!  Check it out!

Expensify: Expense Reports That Don’t Suck. Scan Receipts & Create Expenses Anywhere Seamless Quickbooks Integration

4. Tempo

I’ve recently started using Tempo as my calendar app. So far, I love it!  Say you have a meeting with someone on April 1st.  If they happen to be in your contacts, type their name into your calendar event and once the event is made, their phone number, FB,  and LinkedIn profile will pull up!  You can call/text them right from your calendar.  It tells you the last time you met with that person and the next time you’ll be meeting with them!  It’s the easiest way to schedule meetings, hop on conference calls and see the emails and documents related to that meeting!

Tempo Smart Calendar - Free Calendar App for iPhone and iPod - Tempo Smart Calendar is the only calendar that intelligently finds and neatly organizes everything you need for each meeting, including contacts, locations, and related emails and documents.

5.  Spotify

Of course you need some music in your crazy busy life!  We love spotify!  It helps us get pumped up for the day or unwind after a long busy day!  You can choose between genres and moods!

Keep your endurance up while exercising with our new Spotify workout playlist! #exercise #health

If you don’t already have all of these apps, I hope you download them after reading this!  Also, they’re ALL FREE! Yay!  Have a great Monday!
