Friday Favorites




Finally, it's Friday.
Can you believe Christmas 
is a week from today??
Where has December gone?
I'm not even done with my shopping yet.


Here are my favorites this week.


Song

Mary, Did you know? by Pentatonix

This is such a beautiful song.
They are so amazing.





TV Show

Games of Thrones Season 6

While it won't be on until April, I'm still
excited for Games of Thrones Season Six.
It looks so good!! 
If you aren't watching this, you do not
know what you are missing.
This is such a great show!!



 Beauty

Ambient Lighting Palette by Hourglass

I'm loving this highlighting palette.
The colors work alone or all together.
It isn't too shimmering, it just gives
a nice glow. Totally worth the money.

Food

Gingerbread Cupcakes 

I love that we have a Georgetown Cupcake
here in Boston. I love me some gingerbread so of course I would
be a huge fan of a gingerbread cupcake.
Seeing as my Grandmother
loves them too, we always have them on
 Christmas Day and I cannot wait.

Quote

This time of year, it's so easy
to get caught up in the consumerism of Christmas.
Myself included. At the end of the day, 
that doesn't matter. What does matter
is spending time with our loved ones.
Thought this was a great reminder of that.

That wraps up my favorites this week.
I wish I could say I was
doing something fun this weekend
but I'm not. This girl is working. Yup, not one day off.
In fact, my next day off isn't until Christmas Day.
The joys of working two jobs this time of year.


Have a Wonderful Weekend!

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

Best, Marie

  5. Mary Did You Know is one of my all-time favorite Christmas songs! Gives me chills! Did you see Jordan the winner of the Voice sing it this week? it was amazing! I would give anything to have a cupcake shop in our town, that gingerbread man cupcake looks delicious and I wish I had one right now! Despite having to work, I hope your weekend is joyous and festive as I am sure you will make many people smile sweet Marie!!

  8. That palette sounds pretty amazing. I really need to learn how to highlight and contour properly. I've been so lazy with my makeup and do bare minimum.

  9. Georgetown Cupcakes is my JAM! Have you ever had their banana split cupcake? It is to die for! I could eat them every day. Thankfully, it is a special though and they usually only have it in Summer so I am not tempted to pop over there and scarf one down too often, lol!
