10 Items for Fall

I know we are still a few weeks away from it being officially fall.
However, with September fast approaching, I can't help but be 
all about fall fashion. While, I'm sad to see summer end,
I'm looking forward to those crisp cool fall days.

Today, I'm sharing my ten key pieces every
girl should have in her closet for fall.


Karen Walker

Kate Spade


Rag & Bone


Tory Burch

Saks Fifth Avenue


American Rag

How fab are these pieces?? What I love about them, is that they are classic
 and go with so many things.  These days, I'm all about classics with a 
little flare. My days of being trendy are far behind me. 

What are your favorite items for fall??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!
Best, Marie

The Vineyard

Recently, Jenn and I took
a day trip to the island of Martha's Vineyard. 
Known to locals as the Vineyard.

We hadn't been in sometime and the first thing 
we did as soon as we got off the ferry was walk around the
Martha's Vineyard Camp Meeting Association,aka the "Gingerbread Houses", 
a collection of 350 colorful cottages.  

We hadn't visited them since 2012.  So, a visit was required.

This is my favorite house!!

Side note-I didn't want to get up too close and personal to them
as I did not want to disturb the residents/guest who live there.
Most of them were having breakfast on their porches
and I didn't want to be that tourist. Kwim?? 

Seriously, how cute are they??
You can even rent one if you would like.

As usual, these were the only pictures I 
took on the Vineyard. As it was the height of the summer season,
the island was quite packed. In fact, we only stayed a few hours. It was 
a bit too crowded for us.  It was quite amusing to see traffic on the island as
 well as the lines for the public buses (and bathrooms!!). 

The Vineyard is best in the shoulder/off season, as things
are still opened: you can enjoy the beauty and peace of the island. 
It's a great place to visit for a few days or just the day.

When planning a trip to the Vineyard, visit MVOL 
It is one of the best sites for information about the island.

So tell me do you prefer to visit
places during the high season or shoulder/off season??

Let me know, I love hearing from you!!
Best, Marie

Big hair, don't care

In a world of sleek hair, I don't mind my big curly hair,
 I embrace it and say the bigger the hair, the better!!

Today, I'm sharing my favorite hair products. 

Redken Color Extend Magnetics Shampoo

Redken Color Extend Magnetics Conditioner

Redken Volume Beach Envy Shampoo

BB Curl

Alterna Bamboo Volume 48-Hour Sustainable Volume Spray

Oribe Apres Beach Wave and Shine Hairspray

Drybar "Detox" Dry Shampoo

Ouai Wave Spray

It took a lot of trial and error to find the best products that work in my hair,
as I have a lot of hair but it's thin. It looks thick but it really isn't.  Many
products, some which people swear by, are just too heavy for my hair. 
And I really love all these products as they don't stripe or dry out my hair.
I don't wash my hair every day so my products tend to last longer.
I also don't style it everyday. Heck, some days I don't even 
use any hairspray. I pin it up and go. 

Tell me what are you favorite hair products??
Let me know, I love hearing for you!!
Best, Marie
