Rockport


Over the summer, Jenn and I drove up to Rockport, MA. 
It's a quaint little fishing town, north of Boston on
the tip of the Cape Ann Peninsula.  

While the town is small, it's a charming place to explore for the day. 
You can visit one of the town's five beaches, rent Kayak's, visit the numerous art 
galleries, or just walk around town. It is probably one of the most
picturesque towns in New England.

The town is filled with cute little shops, art galleries and restaurants. 
Since the town is surrounded by water on three sides, there are gorgeous
views all around.  We mainly walked around main street and Bearskin neck, which
 use to be the fisherman shacks that now are stores,restaurants, hotels and
 private homes.There are also quite a few ice cream and candy shops which
 have sitting areas in the back on the water. Talk about beautiful views. 

Rockport is a great place for a day trip or a short weekend getaway. Parking 
can be problematic, but if you don’t mind a little walk, you will find parking on the 
many side streets away from the downtown area. We have always enjoyed
 going to Rockport. It’s great in the summer time, but it can get really crowded. 
We went in the winter once, and a lot of the stores were closed, but it was
 still pretty awesome. However, it was really cold!!

Are you fan of day trips? Where do you like to go?
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!
Best, Marie

Five for Friday by JenniSixx



Hey Hey!!
It's Friday  It's the the 13th!!
It's Spooktacular!!

Here is what caught my eye this week.

{one}

Somewhere Under Heaven by Tom Petty

 I was very sad to hear of Tom Petty's passing.
This is absolutely  my favorite song by him.
RIP Tom Petty.



{two}

Curb Your Enthusiasm

I am so happy it’s back on!
 Larry David is just so funny and is pure comedy gold on Curb. 



{three}

 Peanut Butter and Jelly Oreos

A friend of mind in North Carolina sent them to me as they 
are not available up here in Boston.
THEY ARE AMAZING!
 By far the best “special” oreos EVER! 



{four}


I needed a new purse and couldn't find one that I liked.
(I'm not like Marie, I don't have a million bags.) As soon as I saw 
this one, I knew I had to have it. I can carry it on my shoulder
or cross body and it fits all my junk. The best part is is that
it also has black hardware. I'm all about black on black.
 Oh and it came with three pouches, to help keep me organized.
 Score!!  It's like the best bag ever!!
I LOVE this bag.

Friday the 13th is totally one of my favorite
movies!! I love when it's Friday the 13th.
And yes, I will be watching this movie tonight.
I always watch Friday the 13th on Friday the 13th!
I so need this t-shirt. 

Lucky 

That wraps up my Five for Friday.
Look at that two posts this week by me! haha 
Only cause my twin has been sick with this nasty cold/
allergy thing which she has now given to me.
 Ugh, twin life. Whenever one of us
has a cold, the other one will always get it.

Have a Great Weekend

#PrayforLasVegas




Jenn and I are absolutely heartbroken about the events 
that happened earlier this week in Las Vegas. We are both huge 
music fans and go to many concerts a year. This really hit close to home
 for us, as we both have so many emotions, that we just can’t put into words. 
Really, there are no words.  It's hard to even write this post.

A lone CRAZY gunman perched on the 32nd floor of the hotel 
across the street, took aim at a crowd of 22,000 people enjoying a music show,
 committing one of the deadliest mass shootings in U.S. history.
An act of Pure Evil. 

 Music is such an incredible thing, and being at a live show is pure magic! 
59 people who went to enjoy a live show, won't be coming home.
Lives and families changed now forever. 

Pray for Las Vegas. 
Pray for those whose lives were lost, for those who were injured, for
the families affected by this senseless tragedy, and pray for each other. 
We need to come together, we cannot let hate win.
Love over hate.

Music is life itself. What would this world be
without good music? No matter what kind it is.
-Louis Armstrong

With love,
Marie & Jenn

Five for Friday, End of September



How is it that today is the last 
Friday in September?? Did this
month fly by or what?  Time needs
 to slow down.

Here is what caught my eye this week. 

{one}

Love So Soft- Kelly Clarkson

Love this new song by Kelly.
Cannot wait for her new album.



{two}


Now that there is a Sephora down the street from my office,
I find myself popping in the store at least once a week.
My pores drive me crazy so I'm always looking for
products to minimize them. The girl recommend this mask.
It's a peel-off mask and I LOVE it. However, Jenn hated it, she prefers
masks that you can wash off, rather than peel off. You can
wash this one off as well. I thought it made my pores look smaller.
Jenn didn't notice any difference. Her pores are also really
small and doesn't have issues with them like I do.
I love peel-off mask. This one  is still one of my favorites.


{three}


Has anyone tired this mascara??
I read about it on Popsugar and then saw it on the Daily Mail.
People are raving about it. It's like falsies in a tube.
 I think I need to pick some up
next time I'm at Ulta.


{four}


I went to see this bag in person and 
it ended up coming home with me. 
I absolutely LOVE it. It's a great work
bag, you can stuff it and it still feels light.
Even Jenn loved them and picked up this one.
Now, I want this one, this one, and this one.



{five}

Belle Costume

I finally saw Beauty and the Beast! 
OMG I LOVED IT!!!
When I saw this Belle Costume at
Target, I was like UGH, how great is that.
Ok, please tell me I'm not alone
with my new Beauty and the Beast 
obsession?? 

Belle

That wraps up my five for Friday. I have big
plans this weekend, I'm going to  do 
a little bit of nothing. LOL. It's been a long
week and I'm exhausted. 

Have a Wonderful Weekend.

Let me know, I love hearing from you!!

Wish List Wednesday-Under $100



It's Wednesday which means I'm back with another wish list.  In an effort to 
be more fiscally responsible, all my picks are under $100.  While 
I do splurge a bit (maybe too much), I am actively 
trying to not shop as much. So for today,
I'm merely wishing.

Plaid Scarf

Side Slit Tee

Better than Sex Mascara

Statement Earrings

Knit Hat

Ruffle Utility Jacket

Swing Dress

Skinny Jeans



Fit & Flare Dress

Leopard Heels



Again, I'm merely wishing. Not shopping. 
Sometimes, I think I should just be a personal shopper so
 that I can get paid to shop!! However,I'm not sure I would
 really like that.  Buying beautiful things that I can't keep
for myself. Hmm..not sure I could do that. Lol.

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