Jumpstart Your Social Life With Sosh

Hip-Hop karaoke, a sushi rolling class and a 24K gold facial.

No, these unique experiences can’t be found in the same location (unfortunately). However, they are just a sampling of what you’ll discover on the best new app for social butterflies, Sosh.

As soon as you signup, the most highly recommended spots around town will be featured on your homepage. My newest favorite, “Chicago’s Best Hole-In-The-Walls”, details the city’s best spots for good eats and no frills. Two of my favorites, Nuevo Leon and Lem’s BBQ, were included.

Any time I’m on the hunt for something specific (or not so specific), I refer to the ShopStyle app. The ability to search a multitude of retailers from one central location is a godsend, especially for those of us who like to comparison shop. From the most detailed (“DvF Bianca Pump”) to the most vague (“leather satchel”), this app provides relevant search results that can be drilled down to an exact size, color, and price range. It’s easy to keep track of your finds (a simple click on the heart icon to adds the item to your favorites) and also when they go on sale (select the Sale Alert button to be notified of any price drops).

Consider ShopStyle the Google of retail. I certainly do.
