Blue & Beige

Blue & Beige

This week's outfit was inspired by my booties which are similar to the ones above. Due to the lovely winter weather, I haven't been able to wear them much.
Ok, it's more like they have been worn twice since Fall.
 I'm patiently waiting for the weather to get a little better so I can wear them.
That's the worse part of winter, all you do is wear snow boots!! I'm like a broken record seeing as I discussed this last week as well.
But DAMN'T, I want to wear my cute shoes again!!
Cute shoes can make or break an outfit.
Right?? LOL!!

HAVE  A FANTASTIC WEEKEND!!


What shoes are you looking forward to wearing this spring??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!

Monday Morning Gossip-Winter Skin

Linking up with Leann for Monday Morning Gossip.




Today I'm gossiping about my Winter Skin Routine.

Winter Skin



      


This winter has been brutally cold and quite snowy. I don't remember such a cold winter.  It  has been even harder on my skin.

I received a Clarisonic for Christmas. At first, I really didn't like it. It felt weird and it was making my skin go crazy. Turns out, I was over using it. Now, I use it about three to four times a week (usually at night). It has made a HUGE difference in my skin. For some they can use it every day but if you have some what sensitive skin, it is best to use only a few times a week.

  • Philosophy-'help me' retinol night treatment
  • This stuff is amazing!! I noticed a difference in my skin almost immediately. It has made my skin look  clear and brighter. I use this a few times a week. Some use it every night but it was too much for me. 

What can I say. It's expensive but it is amazing. It always makes my skin look supple and soft. I had stopped using it for awhile and my skin took a turn for the worse. As soon as I started using it again, my skin was back to looking normal. Love love this stuff. Although, it is expensive, a jar lasts a long time. 
I only use a little twice a day.

I think this is one of the best eye cream on the market. It's hydrating and helps lighten dark circles. Little trick, I learned, after I put my makeup on, I dab a little on the sides of my eyes to brighten them. It really makes a difference. 

This stuff seriously helps lighten my dark circles. This stuff works as soon as you start using it.  A little goes a long way and really makes a difference. This is like my dark circles bestie!!

Much thanks to Leeann for letting me link up.

Spring Ahead

Spring Ahead

Today's outfit was inspired by the upcoming weekend weather as it is suppose to be warm and sunny. Spring like!! And when I say warm, I mean like in the high forties!! That is like a HEAT WAVE here!!  It's been so cold, so snowy, so nasty. This will be a nice break. Although, the bad weather will be back by early next week.  While I do love winter, I'm really tired of  wearing my snow boots. 
Snow boots, while warm and practical, they can be so heavy. 
They also aren't very pretty. I miss wearing my pretty shoes!!
Oh and of course, I miss using my nice purses too!!


HAVE A FANTASTIC WEEKEND!!

Are you looking forward to Spring??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!

Patience

Pinterest


 I have been bothered by some things I recently witnessed.
My grandmother got ill and we had to take her to the hospital last week. Now, one would think that in a hospital, they would be used to dealing with the elderly. The things I saw truly broke my heart. People do not have patience with the elderly. My grandmother was treated so poorly that I'm appalled that a world renowned hospital would treat their elderly patients as bad as they do.  My grandmother wasn't the only elderly patient treated poorly. In fact, all of them were treated poorly. There was no respect for them, no assistance, nothing. It was as if they were bothering them. Excuse me, but isn't their job to care for the sick? I know firsthand how stubborn and hard headed some elderly people can be, but that does not give doctors and nurses the right to belittle, trivialize, minimize, roll their eyes, or sneer at them. They may be old but they are someone's loved one. I really would like to know how these Doctors and nurses would feel, if that was their grandmother being treated in that way.

What in the world happen to” Respect Your Elders”?

Every single one of us, if we are lucky, will one day become elderly. 
Yet, we treat them like trash.  It's an absolute disgrace.

Today, I'm asking you to have patience.
The most important thing when caring for an elderly person is to have patience.
Patience is what seems to be lacking these days.
If you see an elderly person struggling, reach out to them and help them.
Please don't roll your eyes, sneer at them, or make some type of off handed remark.
For one day, that may be you.

Respect your Elders!!

Thank you for reading.
Best, Mree

Winter Gear

Winter Gear


                               

This week's outfit was inspired by the weather!! 
It has been COLD COLD COLD and we have just had another SNOW STORM!! This winter has been brutal. 
I still LOVE winter but I do miss being able to spend time outside.
Right now, I can only be outside for about an hour before I start to freeze.
And with it being so cold, you really shouldn't be out for more than that.

Happy Valentine's Day! 
Or as I like to call it, Single Lady Awareness Day.Ha!
 My favorite thing about today is all the pink, the hearts, and the sweets!!
Today, I celebrate my love for all you!
Thanks so much for reading, it means the world to me.
You all are amazing!!

HAVE A FANTASTIC WEEKEND!!

Are you over the winter??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!
Best, Mree

Snow Snow Snow

SNOW

I decided to go out and take some pictures of the snow because well it's just so pretty. 
Even though, I'm not a fan of shoveling snow, I love the way it looks.












There has been plenty of snow this winter.
 So far this year, Boston has had 43 inches. 
That is  a lot of snow and winter isn't even over. 
Thanks to Phil, winter will be lasting another 6 weeks.
I know I'm crazy but I just love winter so I don't mind 
it lasting a little longer.  Although, my snow boots may not.

Are you a fan of Snow??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!1

Friday's Fancies-Date Night

Linking up with {av} for Friday's Fancies. 


Date Night



                                     

This week's Friday's Fancies theme is Date Night!!
 Since Valentine's Day is right around the corner, I went with a red dress!! I love dresses like this, you can easily dress it up or dress it down. For accessories, I went with black. I think black and red look great together.However, I kept the accessories simple so that they don't compete with the dress.Call it simple elegance. What do you think??

HAVE A FANTASTIC WEEKEND!!

Much thanks to {av} for letting me link up for Friday's Fancies.

What's your date night outfit??
