Friday's Favorites-Jan. 30th

Linking up with Meet @ the Barre.



Sugar by Maroon 5

This is my new jam.
Haven't stopped listening to it.
The video is so great, they surprised all these couples at their wedding.
How cool is that??


As you you know it's been cold and snowy here.
As a result, in the afternoons, I have been drinking tea.
 Yes, hot tea. What can I say, the cold has gotten to me. 
This tea is so good. I have been drinking it every afternoon.
I add a little of my french vanilla sugar free creamer 
and two splenda's, I'm in tea heaven.
Love the mint flavor, it's subtle not overwhelming.

Bigelow Plantation Mint


How I felt when I first heard about the blizzard.

Have you seen this video??
It's so funny!!
Love how this Principal announced that there would be no school. 


This is what it looked like when I walked out of my house
Tuesday morning. Thanks Juno for all the snow!!
I lost count how many times I had to shovel that day and the next.
More snow to come today. tired of shoveling.


Sometimes over planning becomes overwhelming.
What will be will be.
This has been my motto for the past week.

That wraps up my Friday's Favorites this week.  
It's been quite a week with, first a blizzard and more snow today.
I so need a vacation. haha  I do love the snow but it's just been so much at once.
It's a little too much at once, even thought it is so pretty. 

Have a Wonderful Weekend

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

Hump Day Confessions

Linking up with Melissa for Hump Day Confessions.

I confess...

... I'm not a fan of online shopping. 
I like to see things in person before I buy.
Plus, I hate returning. 

... I'm a sucka for a free gift with a makeup purchase. 
Hence, the money Nordstrom got from me, thanks to their fab free beauty gift with any $125.00 beauty purchase. Seriously, how great is it?
It is online only and I did need more of my Philosophy cleansers.


...I'm always contradicting myself. 
I just said I'm not a fan of online shopping but yet just did some online shopping. 
See, I'm crazy!!

...I have an unhealthy obsession with Norman Reedus from The Walking Dead.

...I have to clean my desk once a week, I cannot stand a dirty desk.

...I'm still heartbroken over Brody. 
Homeland fans will understand.

...I get super annoyed when I order my Ice Coffee and the person goes ICE COFFEE are you crazy, it's freezing out.  Yes, I'm sure. I'm a New Englander! drives me absolutely MAD when someone calls me Maria.
It's MARIE not Maria. And no, it is not the same name. 

...I go crazy when I tell someone I'm a twin and then they pinch me and go, do you think your Twin felt that? Probably not but how about I pinch you??

..I'm in a bad mood all day when I have a bad hair day.
It's terrible!! 

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

Linking up with B Loved BostonChampagne and Suburbs for Weekending.

Happy Monday!!

Sadly, I didn't do anything interesting this weekend.

We did have some snow on Saturday which meant that alot of people were not out.

It really wasn't too bad driving and it wasn't that cold.

The best part was everywhere was pretty empty.

We had a whole Walmart to ourselves.

When is Walmart empty??

Here are some snapshots of my weekend.

That was my weekend, kinda boring but that's ok.

We are expecting a blizzard tonight into 
Wednesday morning,
up to 36 inches!!

While I love the snow, I hate shoveling 
and 36 inches is alot to shovel.

And even in a blizzard, I have to report to work. 
Terrible, right?

How was your weekend??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!
Best, Marie

Friday's Favorites-Jan. 23rd

Linking up with Meet @ the Barre.



Thinking out Loud by Ed Sherran

I love a good love song, pun intended.
This song is fab and I just love the video


La Mer Moisturizing Cream

This stuff is very pricey but so worth it. 
I swear, this is magic in a jar.
This winter weather is brutal on my face and 
this is the only stuff that helps.
 I have tried many other creams but I always go back to this stuff.
Bonus-you can also use it as an eye cream.
Totally helps my dark circles.

La Mer


This is the cutest video I have seen in a long time.
Juni and Violet are best friends who both are battling the same cancer.
Here is Violet announcing to Juni that she is going to Disney, 
thanks to the Make a Wish Foundation.
And the good news is, both their cancer's are in remission 
but they will still get together for magical play dates. 
Yay for remission and magical play dates.


1) 7 Styling Tricks to Spruce Up Your Home This Year.

2) 3 Simple Tips for Packing Your Carry-On.

3) 11 Things You Didn't Know About New Kids on the Block.


This quote really spoke to me this week.
It's so true. I'm all about staying positive.

That wraps up my Friday's Favorites.
Happy that the weekend is here.
Have nothing planned as of yet.

Have a Wonderful Weekend.

Hump Day Confessions

Linking up with Melissa For Hump Day Confessions.

I confess...

...I decided it was time to retire wish list/want it all Wednesday.
You were probably tired of it too. confessions it is... oh do I have alot.

...If someone holds open a door for you, say thank you.
It drives me batty when people don't say thank you.
Where have good manners gone??

...I adore One Direction and totally would go see them in concert.

...I hardly clean my makeup brushes. It's bad.

...I don't care how much money you have, your have no class if you throw clothing you don't own on the floor in the dressing room and step all over it.

...courtesy flush!! Learn it, live it. Do I really need to say more?

...I will answer to the name Jenn even though that is not my name.
It's my twin's name. If I had a dollar for every time I was called Jenn, 
I would be flithy stinking rich. 

...sometimes I think I'm a real doctor.
 I'm really good at diagnosing what you have before you go see a doctor. 
Really, I am. 

...I hate going to the movies.
 I don't like sitting next to a stranger. I always think they are gonna steal my purse. 

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

Best, Marie

Friday's Favorites

Linking up with Meet @ the Barre.



Hozier-Take Me to Church

Love love this song.
I love singing along to it on my morning commute.
The first time I heard this song, I thought it was Elton John.
Doesn't it sound like him or is it just me??


YSL Saint Laurent 

Effet Faux Cils Shocking Felt-Tip Eyeliner

My sister had been telling me how great this eye-liner was, 
so I decide to buy it and try it myself.
This stuff is fab!! 
I usually have a hard time with liquid eye-liner but this stuff 
went on so easy and lasted all night long. 
This is my new go to eyeliner when I want to do a smokey eye.


American Sniper

This movie comes out today and I so want to see it.
It's the true story of Chris Kyle, the most lethal sniper in American history.
It looks so amazing! I know I better bring a box of kleenex with me.


Since it's a New Year, I'm trying to be more organized especially at home.
I find being more organized at home helps makes life easier. I did re-organize all my hats and gloves in their own boxes. Makes the morning so much easier now.



My week was absolutely hellish.
It was work work work work.
So much work, that I was stressing so hard that I was unable to sleep.
I'm so glad that it is over with.
When I saw this quote, I immediately thought it would be perfect for today.
The rough time is over with and life is back to normal.
As is my stress levels.

That wraps up my Friday's Favorites.
So happy that Friday is here and I'm off on Monday!! 
So excited!! Still gotta work on Sunday but that's ok.

This weekend we are celebrating my Grandmother's 91st Birthday!!
I cannot believe she is 91! She doesn't even look it.
Even she is like, I can't believe how old I am!! Lol.
I'm so blessed to have her in my life as she is one my best friends.
I would be lost with out her, love her so very much.

Have A Wonderful Weekend!!
