Wish List Wednesday

Seeing as I'm limiting my shopping, 
I'm merely wishing for these items.
Why is it so hard NOT to shop??

I was tagged by the lovely Kate to list
 ten loves and ten hates.

Here goes.


1) The color PINK. 
2) Purses- they are my favorite thing to purchase. 
3) Iced coffee- especially flavored Iced Coffee
4) Pop music-I pretty much like all music except for metal.
5) Traveling- love seeing the world
6) Baseball- I just love the game.
7) Taking pictures
8) Kindness
9) Norman Reedus-my celebrity crush.
10) French Bread-ooh with a little butter, yum.


1) Rudeness-manners are dying.
2) Mean people -the world needs more kindness
3) Traffic-makes me ragey.
4) Fakes-all kinds, people, purses, etc.
5) Bad coffee.
6) Rain-my hair hates it too.
7) Chipped Nails
8) Crowds-I get major anxiety when in a crowd of people.
9) Ageing- it breaks my heart seeing my Grandmother getting more and more
frail as she ages. I miss walking the mall with her. 
10) People who pretend to have perfect lives-no one does.

What are your love and hates??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!
Best, Marie

Friday's Five

Friday, my favorite F word.
Yay for Friday.
It's my second favorite day of week.
Saturday, being my favorite, since it's my
only day off. lol.

Let's get right to my favorites.


Like I'm Gonna Lose You by Meghan Trainor ft. John Legend

I'm so loving this song. 
Been listening to it non-stop.
Love Love Love this song.


Smashbox '24 Hour Photo Finish' Primer

I'm loving this eye shadow primer.
My eye make up didn't cake or move when I wore this.
 And on that day it was super hot and humid out.
 The staying power of this stuff is incredible. 
As soon as my sample runs out, I'm going to buy it. 
It really does make my eye makeup last all day.
I'm so impressed with this product, it 
works so well.

Sam Edleman 'Alaine' Flats

I picked these up during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale
 and I'm so glad that I did.
I'm loving them so much.
Funny, I was never really into leopard but for
reasons unknown, I LOVE leopard flats.
They just make an outfit pop.

Sam Edelman

Are you obsessed with the show Homeland, like I am? 
I was so excited to see the first trailer 
from the upcoming season.
From what it looks like, season 5 is gonna 
be awesome. I am so excited, I totally
love this show. Although, the death in season 
3 (won't spoil it if you haven't seen or don't watch it)
still leaves me a little broken.


That wraps up my Friday Five.
Tomorrow, I'm spending the day with my Mother.
We are gonna have lunch and do a little shopping.
I love having a Mother-Daughter day, it's
always super fun.

Have a Wonderful Weekend.

What are your favorites this week??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!
Best, Marie

.. that I'm always listening to music.
It's always playing in my office.

... that I can't whistle.

...that I can't sing, at all.

...that I would NEVER participate in Karaoke because
my singing is THAT bad.

...that I'm utterly obsessed with island life during the winter. 
I would love to live on an island.

..that I do not like to cook and I'm Italian. 
I should, it's in my blood.

...that I went to Italy and called home complaining about the food.

...that I didn't like pasta or tomato sauce as a child.

...that whenever I travel, I take my rosary
 that were blessed by Pope John Paul, with me.
I can't fly without them. 

..that at times I pretend I am my twin sister. 
Most people can't tell us apart over the phone.

..that if I'm having a bad hair day, it turns into a bad day.

...that the heat and the humidity make me cranky.

Now, it's your turn!

What are your confessions?
Let me know, I love hearing from you!
Best, Marie
