Here’s my big ol’ list of favorites:
Siteground hosting: A self-hosted blog is a must. If you’re ever hacked like I was, you’ll want your host to be on your side. I can’t recommend SiteGround enough after switching to them last year. Solid, reliable hosting with excellent customer service for only a few bucks a month.
Grammarly is the World’s Best Grammar Checker: Because typos are never cool. Free option that’s seamless to use.
Jackery Fit portable storage: Offers quick charging for USB devices.
Language learning & living abroad must-haves
Lingoda: Learn French (or another language) online in small and private classes with native speaker teachers. Try your first class with no commitment for only $1.
Clozemaster: A fun way to learn a language. The free online game/app is language learning through mass exposure to vocabulary in context.
Lyricstraining: Listen to popular songs in your target language and train your ear to fill in the blanks!
Send My Bag: Do you travel with only a carry-on and need to get your suitcase or box from point A to point B? Read my review here of this competitively priced shipping service.
My Little America is a must when home sickness settles in. Even if you’re not a big junk food fan, they have all kinds of things you can’t always find in France. My faves? Pam Cooking Spray. Regular Cheerios. The occasional Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. Everything ships from France. Click here to use promo code REMISE5 and get 5€ off all orders of 50€+.
