Friday's Favorites

Linking up with Meet @ the Barre.



Outside  by Calvin Harris Ft. Ellie Goulding

This song is so fantastic.
I have been listening to it non-stop.
I pretty much love everything by Calvin Harris.
Looking forward to hearing the rest of his new album.


Tory Burch York Tote

I have had my eye on this bag for some time.
Finally, I decided to just get it.


It's a great work bag. 
It has a ton of room and 
I love all the pockets (6 of them)
It's like a built-in bag organizer,
I love bags with lots of pockets!!

All my stuff fits in and I still have room left over.

The only thing I don't like is that the large zipper pocket (it's in the middle of the bag),
is not sewn into the bottom of the bag. So sometimes, my change purse gets stuck under neath it.  That is my only complaint about the bag.
As for the thin straps, they don't dig into my shoulders at all.
However, I think they could depending how much you carry.

All in all, I think it's a great work bag.
If you are looking for a big work bag with lots of
 pockets to keep you organized this is a winner!!

Tory Burch York Tote

Kelly Clarkson singing Sam Smith's Stay with me.

She does such an amazing job with this song. 


1) New Christmas Drink at Starbucks, Chestnut Praline Latte

2) Cold Weather Essentials
Great layering tips.

3) Remembering Oscar De La Renta
A true gentleman, May He Rest in Peace.

4) 20 Styles to wear to any job.
Love this!!


My heart has been very heavy this week.
Earlier this week, I learned of the sudden passing of a dear family friend.
When I found out, I was not only shocked but angry and filled with much sadness.
A dear friend gone way too soon.
I found this quote earlier this year and it just stuck with me.

Always let the people you love know that they are loved.
For you never know what may happen.


That wraps up my Friday's Favorites.

Have a wonderful weekend!!

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

Best, Mree
Pin It!


  1. So sorry for your loss. Letting our loved ones know we love them is so important. Kelly has such an amazing voice and she sings that song so well.

  2. I'm so sorry about your friend's passing...sending you hugs!

  3. So incredibly sorry about your loss. Death sucks and it's the worst, ever. <3 and hugs to you!

  4. Such a cute everyday tote!! Happy Friday!

  5. I love Ellie and Calvin Harris - great song choice!! I'm so sorry for your loss - but you're so right - you have to let the people you love know they are loved by you!! xo

  6. I'm sorry to hear of your loss, it's never easy and honestly I think the anger stage of grief is the longest one. On another note I totally need a new work bag and that Tory one might just be it! Organization and lots of pockets are absolutely key.


  7. That bag is gorgeous, but far too expensive for me! some of those work outfits are fabulous, and some I would never wear, lol.
    So true about always letting your loved ones know they are loved. I had a scare recently where someone was in hospital and I hadn't spoken to her recently or told her I loved her, and I was so upset. Thankfully she pulled through, but I still felt like a shit. I am so sorry for your loss.

  8. I just resisted buying anything on the Tory Burch sale and you had to go and share that bag. Now I am considering reopening the sale tab. Darnit! :)

  9. So sorry for your loss!!!!! It is always hard when it is sudden.

    But on a happier note, that bag is perfect! I can see why you had an obsession and had to get it! Great song choice!

  10. Awwwww hunny I'm so sorry to hear that! Sending you lots of love!

    I'm glad to hear your positive review that tote is perfect!

  11. Hey Kudos to you for buying yourself that bag, you deserve it!! And is it gorj!

    Allie of ALLIE NYC

  12. Thinking of you! I felt the same thing when my friend's father passed. I love that bag too! xoxo

  13. ooh, i'm going to have to listen to that video when i get home (have no speakers at work, lol!).
    sorry also for the loss of your friend....


Thanks for visiting, I love hearing from you!
