Besides the Instagram, Facebook and Twitter apps (honestly, who doesn't use at least one of these every single day?), these are some of my favorite apps that I have on my iPod Touch 4. I use them on both a daily and weekly basis and feel you need to know about them if you don't already!
It's so organized and easy and I like that my eyes can focus on just a few images at a time rather than a handful when I have Pinterest open on my laptop. Not to mention scrolling is literally like a dream! I like to "heart" images that I later want to pin if I just feel like browsing. It's the best way to use that tool because I really don't need the same images I am pinning on my list of likes. The app does everything the website does, it just works smoother and there's something really fun about it being more compact.
I am a few months into using Target's app and I really like it! Anytime I am making my list of things I need from Target I search them all on the app to see what I can save extra on. Usually it's 5%-10% off but I've seen some up to 25% off! When you're checking out, all you have to do is open the app and show the cashier the barcode displayed on your screen once they've scanned all your items. Who doesn't like a little extra savings? To use this app you have to have a Target account or you can sign in through your Facebook.
If you're wanting to add a little glimmer and gleam to your images in the shape of circles, hearts or stars, than this is the app for you! You can choose a color scheme and add the effect wherever you'd like on your image with the ability to do multiple layers. Once you're done, you hit the "Share" button which will allow you to save it to your photo album or you can post it to various social media websites.
Cut The Rope 2
This game is centered around one of the cutest little characters ever! His shape, the way he moves and all his fun noises make both my husband and I laugh and melt. We play it together and absolutely love it! There are also other adorable characters involved through the various obstacles you have to figure out in order to get "Om Nom" his candy and boy does it get tough! We haven't tried the first game but I'm sure it's just as fun.
Do you use any of these apps installed or are you interested in the ones I mentioned? Which are your favorites? Hope you all have a wonderful Easter weekend!

This month's Beauty Box 5 box was full of super fun goodies! In case you haven't heard, they deliver 5 deluxe cosmetic samples to your door for $12 a month or $30 for a quarterly subscription. If you're interested in signing up, you can do so here!
My favorite product was the full size paraben-free Nicka K New York Hydro lipstick (a new-to-me brand)! This is the only lipstick that I have ever seen that matched the color displayed on the bottle and it is one of the most gorgeous red shades ever!
The Organic Cleansing Wipes by Blum Naturals work well. I was worried because I'm not a huge fan of citrus but the scent wasn't too strong at all. The mini canister is perfect to carry along with you if needed and contains 30 wipes. I love that so many of the products that BB5 sends out are all natural. It's such a great feeling using them!
I thought the little eye shadow palette by BH Cosmetics was so cute! The colors are very pretty and are buildable depending on what sort of look you're going for.
The Bonne Belle Lip definer makes a nice addition to my make-up collection as I have only ever had one liner. Typically I use the Clear Liner by Maybelline just because it works with everything. But I have a lot of pink lip products that this liner will work with. However it can't be used for a lipstick like some other lip liners just because it doesn't shade in too easily.
Jergens Natural Glow is a good product, you just have to be sure to moisturize before applying it! The sample I got is for medium to tan skin tones but they also have fair to medium available. If you're as fair as I am you'll definitely want to start with that one!
Let me know which product you would most be interested in trying! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
Disclosure: The items listed above were sent to me by Beauty Box 5. All opinions are 100% my own.

A couple of months ago I announced the opening of my first Etsy shop. Recently I have been adding 8x10 instant download digital prints all for $4.99 and under and I also renamed the shop to Style Through Her Eyes, which I think will be much more beneficial. Ever since I got my hands on Adobe Photoshop (many years ago) I've been addicted and thought I'd put my creativity to even better use by creating various decor for your home and office space. Below are two low res. previews of the prints I made this month. You can find the rest at my shop (more will be added soon!). Do let me know what you think and be sure to follow me on Etsy!

Since my last scarf tutorial was a little more on the advanced side I thought I'd do a more basic look that you can achieve with any open-ended scarf. It really gives whatever look you're going for a little more character with just a couple of quick steps! What do you think? Will you try this? If you do, I'd love to see. Tag me on Twitter (sheblog) or Instagram (stylethroughhereyes) with your photo!
Here are the links to my previous scarf tutorials: First, Second, and Third.
I hope you all had a great weekend! Jason and I went to go see Captain America 2 and we both loved it! It's a rare thing when sequels end up being a good movie and even better than the first. I would highly suggest it to anyone interested!

I really love how our bathroom has come together and though I still have some ideas I'd like to incorporate (because I am a perfectionist, I feel like I am never done with any room in our home) I wanted to share some shots with you. Please note: This is not a full bathroom tour but I hope this will give you an idea of the overall serene beach theme that I've attempted. Do let me know what you think in the comments below!
When we first moved into our cozy apartment our bathroom was multicolored with muted neutrals of browns, tans, blues and greens. After a few years I grew tired of it (not to mention I had splattered red nail polish all over the curtain and ruined it) and decided to change it up a bit after I discovered the Simply Shabby Chic collection at Target. I did save the other pieces from the previous theme in our bathroom for an extra bathroom we may have one day but the curtain sadly got trashed (and yes, I tried several methods of getting the nail polish out!).
Our bathroom now features white and silver/glass pieces mixed with a little bamboo...
We have lots of counter space but I like to keep it open and free of clutter. On one end we have the sink where soap and a few other products are kept and the other end is this beautiful goodness. I am
The light brown hand towels are Sonoma Life + Style from Kohl's and are super soft. The white accent towels with the lace detail are from the Simply Shabby Chic collection from Target. Question for you: When you see towels displayed like this, do you feel like you can't use them? Would you feel better if there was something else available to use nearby?
The curtain is also from the Simply Shabby Chic collection and has lace detailing on the top and bottom. The bamboo hooks are from Kohl's. Though they are cute, they don't always stay on the bar when pulling the curtain back to get into the shower. I eventually want to find some circular ones so they will stay locked in place!
We are fortunate to have a lot of storage space in the bathroom. In the drawers I have these plastic dividers by Real Simple from Bed Bath and Beyond that are completely life changing! Yes, life changing. I also use these in other drawers throughout our place to keep things organized and neat. This is a set of 3 I usually get for around $4 or so. I was only able to find this set online, but they do have others in the store. You can find them where they have the bedroom organization products. The first section to the left holds mostly all my night-time routine products. The second one holds random stuff like current favorite nail polishes, my ring cleaner, deodorant, etc. The right section contains all my smaller hair accessories and products.
These glass containers are smaller candle jars from Bath & Body Works that have also been recycled. I store my bobby pins and hair ties in them but you can use them for anything! They are too cute to trash!
This is currently the only thing that is hanging on our bathroom wall. But it's very special and sits above where our bath towels hang. Jason had this made for me when we were still dating and gave it to me on one of our anniversaries. It suits the bathroom perfectly!
The glass soap dispenser and q-tip holder are both from Target, though I don't remember the brand. And yes, that is Christmas soap from Bath & Body Works. I just love the Vanilla Bean Noel scent and can't get myself to put it away!
Our bamboo hamper was a Bridal Shower gift from my parents and the scale is new from Kohls.
A peek into my make-up storage. Because everyone likes to see that, right? Luckily everything fits in this Caboodles case I picked up from Target earlier this year. The top left carries most of my lip products, the bottom left holds some eye shadow pencils, eyeliners, blush, bronzer, chapsticks etc. The top right holds my mascaras. I'm a mascara junkie, as you can see. The bottom left has random bits that may get messy so mostly lip glosses, concealers, sharpeners, etc. The center part has larger things like my Urban Decay and Tarte palette and lots of other eyeshadow, my eyelash curler, etc. There's tons more you can't see under those palettes.
I hope you enjoyed this mini tour of our bathroom! Do you have a theme in your bathroom? What's your favorite part about it?

We're just two months away from being half way through the year. Please tell me I'm not the only one who thinks that's just crazy? One of the big highlights for Jason and I was the blessing of being able to get another vehicle! His car was stolen over a year ago during the holidays. We made it work (though it involved a lot of stress) with one car for a while but this is obviously so much better! During March I made sure to jot down my favorite things, something I had been forgetting to do during previous months, and I am excited to share them with you today!
Share with me something that you really loved last month!
