Five Local Businesses

Linking up with The Blended Blog to share my favorite 
local businesses.

Mane & Mani
Mane & Mani

Jenn and I both go here for our blowouts and nails.
This place is the best!! We love all the girls who work here.
Not only do they do a great job with blowouts, they are
all so friendly and fun. Jenn and I love going
for blowouts and nails. The best part is, getting 
our nails done while they do our hair. In and out within an 
hour for both services which in my book is awesome.

Modern Millie
Modern Millie

This is a fun little dress/consignment shop in Salem, MA.
They have the best dresses in town. They are a little
retro but they also have more modern clothing, hence the name.
 If you are looking for a dress, and something different, this 
is the store to go to.

Roost & Company

This is a little card/gift store also in Salem, MA. Not only 
do they have great cards, they also have cute home furnishings
 and unique little gifts. 

 This store sell a little bit of everything. From handbags to
jewelry, you can find something for everyone here.
Whenever, I need a little gift, I go here. The only downside 
to this place is that they are closed on Sundays and Mondays.
I can't tell you how many times I go on a Monday 
afternoon. ha! 

Jaho Coffee & Tea

Jaho-Downtown Boston
This place is by far my favorite coffee
shop in Boston. They have a few locations in the city
but the Downtown one is my favorite. It's not 
just a coffee shop, it's also a wine bar and restaurant.
Their breakfast sandwiches are fantastic. Well, worth 
the price. 

That wraps up my fave local business. I do love
supporting small business. In fact, I find myself
shopping more and more at them. 

Do you have any favorite local businesses?
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!

Wish List Wednesday

It's Wednesday, which means it's time for Wish List Wednesday!!
 I decided to do a dry January...dry in no shopping. 
I was really, really,really bad in December. My trip
to NYC for NYE's sent me over the 
edge. My wallet hates me. So for now,
just wishing...

Diamond Huggie Earring

Sequin Flutter Sleeve Top

Stripe Turtleneck

Twilly Perfume

Lace Top

Silk Scrunchies

Sweater Blazer

New Balance Platform Sneakers


Leopard Loafers

Navy Vest

Brightening Youth Glow Primer

Champagne Sweatshirt

Kick Flare Cropped Jeans

Nordic Wedge Booties

Oh man, so many nice things...
but I'm being strong. My last
shopping ban (in November), I did
pretty good until Cyber Monday then it
was like the flood gates opened.
The sales were just too good to
pass up. Add in a trip to NYC and
well, hello Shopping Detox.
Wish me luck! I need it!!
I'm an addict... a shopping addict.

What's on your wish list??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!
Best, Marie

The Power of a Gift

As I was perusing the inter webs, I came across this
Christmas ad from John Lewis.

Never one to be at a lost for words, after watching it, I was. 
It just resonated with me.Then it got me thinking, what gift have 
I been given that has meant the same thing to me. 
I thought and thought and thought. 

Honestly, I have been given some
 amazing (trips, a car, designer handbags, jewelry, etc)
 wonderful gifts over the years. But there is one gift that 
I was given, that kept popping in my head. It's a gift 
 that has no momentary value but is priceless to me.
And that gift is my Twin Sister, Jenn.

She is the wind beneath my wings, my partner in crime,
my best friend. In truth, I'm nothing without her.
She makes me a better, kinder person. Plus,
she puts up with all my craziness and there is
alot of that!! 

If I have learned anything in this past year, which 
has been challenging and filled with much disappointments,
is that no matter what, my twinee is always there
for me.  No matter what.

Love you Jenn, you are the light in my heart and are
by far the best gift I have even been given.

Now, tell me what has been your favorite
gift you have gotten?? Let me know, I 
love hearing from you!!
Best, Marie
