Love You Always | Staccato Sunset

One of my favorite collections are their modern prints featured in the Art Marketplace. There are colorful prints as well as lovely Foil-pressed Art prints to choose from to brighten up your space. Most prints start at just $20 with the option of choosing more than 10 frames so that all you have to do upon arrival is unpack and hang! Simple, right? The four prints above would make for great Spring updates to your home or office, but don't forget to browse the rest to see if something else pops out atcha! I think I'm going to have to order the Twinkling Light, the lovely photograph of blurred lights on a hillside at the beach in Pacifica. It would look great in our bathroom!

I just love discovering new places to shop online. Minted is definitely a gem and I hope you stop by and visit them! Which of these four prints is your favorite? What kinds of art prints do you look for to add to your place?

Beauty Box 5: Style Essentials TwinGloss | Style Through Her Eyes

Well, Beauty Box 5 has done it again! Last month, my favorite item in the March box was a Pink Nanacoco Lip Gloss and this month was no different! My favorite product is another gloss by Style Essentials. It's a soft-feeling and very glossy mix of two complimentary shades which provide a very subtle color. It's not something I would choose to wear every day but it's convenient for those days when you don't really feel like wearing much but don't want to feel naked, you know? On days like that I wear foundation, concealer, powder, mascara, a little blush and something light on my lips. That may seem like a lot to you but here's what I skip: contouring, eyes shadow primer, eye shadow, eyeliner, filling in eyebrows (though sometimes I will if I'm going out), and highlighting. What about you? When you don't want to wear a full face of make-up, what do you choose to wear?

If you're interested in receiving five deluxe beauty samples yourself, you can sign up for your own box here at only $12 a month!

Walmart Beauty Box - Spring Edition

Walmart Beauty Box - Spring Edition | Style Through Her Eyes

I really enjoyed the contents of my first Beauty Box from Walmart. There was a decent variety of products and for only $5 for one box, I think it's worth being able to try out some new things (especially because the full size product that is included is valued more than the box itself!). Their boxes are seasonal too, which makes it even more affordable and might be a good one to order if you've always wanted to experience the thrill of opening one while not knowing what's inside. I actually appreciate that they don't send out any previews!

This box was probably my least favorite so far. I'm more into trying out make-up, nail polish, and items from new-to-me brands rather than shampoos and lotions. As you can see from the photo above, there were a lot of coupons (some with samples) included as well!

The most exciting full size product I received is the Rimmel Lash Accelerator Mascara. I'm a big Rimmel fan, and am still working my way through trying out their different products. I think this mascara sounds great! It promises to make your lashes look up to 117% longer in 30 days with its advanced ultra-lengthening formula. I'm thinking I'm going to have to review this one for you at some point!

Below is a list of the items I received along with their retail prices.

Rimmel Lash Accelerator (Full Size) - $8.97
Schwarzkopf essence ULTIME Omega Repair Shampoo (Travel) - $6.97
Schwarzkopf essence ULTIME Omega Repair Conditoner (Travel) - $6.97
Dove Go Fresh Revitalize Body Wash (Travel) - $5.47
Neutrogena Healthy Skin Boosters Facial Cleanser (Sample) - $7.36
Lady Gaga Fame EDP Fragrance (Sample) - $18.77

We're Going to Star Wars Celebration!

All I have really been able to think about for the past month or so is the Star Wars Celebration Convention. Actually, I've been thinking about it for ages but the closer it gets the more excited I've been! It's going to be at the Anaheim Convention Center one week from today! The only way I can possibly describe to you how thrilled I am to be able to go is that it's going to be one of the best days ever! My husband and I have never been to a Star Wars event this big before and we're both attending together for the first time! We both grew up loving the films and met in line for the midnight showing of Attack of the Clones. So you can see, it's pretty much our thing! Today I wanted to share with you some of the things we are bringing to the convention and what we're wearing!

I have an incredible Jedi robe and Force FX Lightsaber, but I wanted to be able to get around easily and be comfortable which is why I decided to wear the best Darth Vader shirt ever from We Love Fine (even the back of the shirt is detailed to look like his robe!). Jason is going to be wearing a shirt he got for Christmas from my brother (which he found at Macy's) which features Darth Vader drumming with lightsabers. It doesn't get much cooler than that!

We are both bringing backpacks to not only carry the merch we'll be buying but also things like water bottles, snacks, a camera, a portable battery pack to charge our phones, etc. Jason's backpack is just plain black but mine represents the life of Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader. I've had it since 2002 and I just love it! Oh, I'm also tucking in a medium-sized Star Wars tote bag which we most likely will be needing for all the stuff we're going to buy!

Of course, we'll need our passes as well! The Storm Troopers will go quite nicely with our Vader shirts though Jason would've preferred them a different color than pink. My mom gifted me this Star Wars notebook a while ago and I had been saving it for something special. I decided to finally use it for the event! Inside I have written down panels and booths we want to see a long with a checklist of things to bring! It will also come in handy for note-taking, because sometimes that's easier than logging it into your phone.

Let me know if you guys are interested in hearing about the event and seeing photos later on!

March Favorites - Beauty & Film

March Favorites - Yes To Blueberries | Style Through Her Eyes

My lovely friend Casee had been telling me about the Yes to Blueberries Cleansing Facial Wipes (25-ct. for $4.55 or 40-ct. for $5.99 at Target) for the longest time and I finally got around to trying them a couple of months ago. They've quickly become part of my nightly routine! I like to use them before washing my face to take my make-up off. One cloth is all you need! The only thing is, if you're wearing water-proof mascara you might need to add some liquid solution to the cloth to help remove it. I use the Boots Expert Sensitive Gentle Eye Make-up Removal Lotion ($4.69 at Target). I love the all-natural brand and the way the package is made. It makes it easy to just grab one wipe and you never have to worry about any of the wipes going dry with the snap closure.

March Favorites - Jason Lotion | Style Through Her Eyes

My local Fresh & Easy recently closed *very sad face*. I visited them during their 50% sale and discovered this Jason lotion, a brand I had seen at Target but never knew they carried! This is a natural lotion that contains aloe vera. I used it on my legs a few times already and oh-my-gosh, it makes them feel so hydrated and smooth! I could still see and feel a difference even after a couple of days. Plus, I find it exciting to have a product that shares the same name as my husband!

March Favorites - Cinderella Movie | Style Through Her Eyes

I wasn't planning on seeing Cinderella until it was available to rent but decided to see it with my mom and sister. I thought the trailer made it seem too silly and wasn't very impressed but the movie itself was really good and absolutely beautiful! Lily James (some of you might recognize her as Lady Rose from Downtown Abbey) did an amazing job as Cinderella and Cate Blanchett was the perfect step-mother. It's definitely more of a chick flick, so if you enjoy that genre and, of course, the magical touch of Disney, you'll probably enjoy it!

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend!

Five Minute Friday: Good

Five Minute Friday: Good | Style Through Her Eyes

I have always been determined to find the good in people and everyday situations. Actually, determined is not even the right word. It comes so naturally for me that I don't hardly think of it. Does that makes sense? It just happens. I suppose its just part of who I am. I think if you're a happy and positive person, this way of thinking and just going about life comes a lot easier. I believe that being happier and having a more positive outlook on things can be achieved by the choices you make each day. I'm not going to tell you that I always think and feel this way, because I'm human and sometimes I have bad days and there are also times where I have to search harder for the good. But being surrounded by so much negativity in this world definitely encourages and challenges me to be happy and to find the good in things. Life is so much better this way!

Is it hard for you to stay positive? Do you try to find the good in people/situations? Is it easy or difficult for you? Why or why not?

I hope you all have a wonderful Easter Sunday!
