This is one of those super simple yet really addicting games that secretly makes you exercise your brain. Download it, it's free and you will feel like a champion when you complete all the levels. 

Make sure to leave me some of your monthly favorites below. I just joined the iPhone family and am in desperate need of some app recommendations!


  1. I saw that Frozen is the New Black video a few days ago! And I really can't wait for the If I Stay movie!

  2. i'm going to dl that brain app! i could always use more brain teasers.

  3. I embarrassingly enjoy games like these over all the others. Nothing feels better than figuring out a puzzle you've been staring at for minutes!

  4. I'm dyinggg to see that movie. I fell in love with the actress who plays the main character in the remake of Carrie!

  5. Yessss I saw that too and have begun to really like her, so I think she'll do a good job in If I Stay!

  6. I love all of these favorites! I've nominated you for a Liebster award! http://www.erikadoeslife.com/2014/08/im-back-liebster-award.html

  7. Aaww thank you so much. I'm working on it now, I might bend the rules to help make posting it quickly a bit easier :)
