Friday's Favorites

Linking up with Meet @ the Barre.



Time of Our Lives by Pitbull and Ne-Yo

I totally love this song. 
Been listening to it non-stop.
I pretty much love every song Pitbull is on.


Chanel Rouge Coco 

Ultra Hydrating Lip Color

in Marie

Two of my favorite things, Chanel and Lipstick.
My mom was absolutely thrilled when she found out that one of the
 new lip colors from Chanel was called Marie
Of course, she had to get me one. 
Ha! It's a pretty pink.
In fact, Keira Knightley wore it to the Oscars.
No, I haven't used it and don't plan on it.
I just like to look at it.
haha, am I crazy or what??



Simply Lite Dark Chocolate with Almonds

A friend of mine was telling me about these Chocolate bars.
 She insisted that I try them.
Let me tell you, these are yummie!! 
They make a great little afternoon snack.
Four pieces are 110 calories.
I buy them at Trader Joe's which sells them for 
around $2.00 a bar. A bar lasts me about two weeks.
I don't have it as a snack everyday, only when I need a little sugar rush.

Simply Lite


1) 8 Tips to Help You Find Your Personal Style. 

2) 7 Things You Can Do to Make Your Home More Stylish.

3) How To Take The Perfect Instagram Photo.


Some times the days all seem like the same and it's easy to get stuck in a rut.
I thought this was a great quote for the week. 
Life isn't about merely surviving, it's about thriving, do things you love, do things with passion but always have compassion and having some style never hurt anyone.


That wraps up my Friday's Favorites.

Happy Spring!!!

Today is the first day of spring and let me tell you, it does NOT feel like it here.
It's so cold, I had to break out my puffy coat again. BOO.
Spring best be around the corner.

I'm so glad that this week is over, it was soooo long.
It didn't help that I had to work late almost every single night.
All I have been doing is working and sleeping, literally.
This weekend will be spent getting some much needed rest.
Plus, a mani and pedi. I'm so overdue.

Have a Wonderful Weekend.

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

What I'm Loving Wednesday and Hump Day Confessions

Linking up with Melissa, Jodi, & Rachel.


What I'm Loving Wednesday and Hump Day Confessions 

I confess that I have really struggled with blogging lately.
 It's hard coming up with blog post ideas.
 I feel like I have nothing to add to the blogging world. 

I'm loving that after a very very long winter, the snow is FINALLY starting to melt. 
The massive snow banks that are all over the place are slowly getting smaller. 
It's starting to get easier to drive and walk around.
 You can even see grass!! 
I will miss the snowman when he is gone.

I confess that I cannot stop binge watching on Netflix. 
Currently, I'm watching  Season Four of The Killing. 
 What should I binge watch next?
 Should I be concerned about how much t.v. I'm watching lately or what?

I'm loving this big pink Peep Bunny. 
Isn't it adorable. 
I was about to purchase it until I saw that it was $50.00
Ugh, no thank you.

I confess that I hate sitting in traffic on my way home from work. 
I can tolerate it in the morning but  NOT on the way home.  
Anyone else feel that the traffic going home is sometimes worse than the 
morning traffic?? It also makes me crazy when the person in front of me is 
talking on the phone rather than paying attention to what is in front of them.
 Get off the phone and drive!! 

That is what I'm loving this week and some confessions. 

Happy Hump Day!!

What' are you loving this week or what is your confession??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!

Linking up with B Loved BostonChampagne and Suburbs for Weekending.

Happy Monday 

I can't believe it's Monday already.
Why does Monday morning come so fast.
I did a little bit of everything this weekend.

Here is what my weekend looked like.

Recently, I signed up for an Netflix account.
Why haven't I done this sooner?
I binged watched Season Two of The Fall.
This show is so good.

 I also indulged in a little retail therapy.
But came home empty handed.
That was probably a good thing, since I'm going on vacation soon.
Save that money for vacation.
Hence, no pictures.

This also happened this weekend!!

It is official, this was the Snowiest Season on Record.
Even though, I have complained about the snow,
 I think it's pretty cool that we broke a record. That's the history buff in me.

Boston Globe

Totally was Another Banner Year
Jenn sent this to me this morning and I just had to share it. 
Too funny.

What did you do this weekend??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!
Best, Marie

Friday's Favorites- JenniSixx Edition

Linking up with Meet @ the Barre


JenniSixx Edition


Game Over by Machine Head

Rght now I'm really digging Game over By Machine Head.
 It's off of their new album Bloodstone and Diamonds.
 Which just so happens to be my favorite album of 2015
 I saw these guys in January, and they were simply amazing!
 I waited a long time to see them and they were totally worth the wait! 
It was 2 and half hours of pure awesomeness! 
Probably one of the best shows I have ever seen!
 I cannot wait to see them again.


EOS-Strawberry Sorbet Lip Balm

This winter has been a total killer of my skin! It's so dry! 
Even my lips are dry, which almost never happens! 
So lately, I have been using this lip balm more then a few times a day.
 It makes my lips feel so much better and they are starting 
to go back to normal! 



Cadbury Mini Eggs

Well it's Easter Candy time, and my favorite has always been Cadbury Mini eggs!
 I can eat these by the bagful! They are that yummy!!
I get so excited when I spot that first bag of the season.
 I am so excited to be going to London soon, I will so be stocking up.
True story, one year I bought so many bags that 
I was able to enjoy mini eggs until December.
I hoaded that last bag for months but finally broke it open and
 it was still yummie. You gotta buy these when you see them, the closer it gets to Easter, the less likely you can find them. Isn't that just crazy??


Run All Night

 It's about two hit men who have it out for each other after 
one of them kills the other ones son.
It stars Liam Nesson, Ed Harris, and Joel Kinnamon, 
which are three of my favorite actors.
I pretty much like everything Liam Neeson is in, even though he plays
 the same sort of character in every movie. 
Honestly, I have seen Taken more times that I care to admit
 I just love love love that movie. 

One of my favorite quotes from one of my favorite writers, Edgar Allan Poe.


That wraps up my Friday's Favorites.
It's been fun filling in for Marie.
She got sick last weekend and has been battling a nasty 
case of strep throat ever since.
 Hopefully, she will be all better soon. 
Heck, she better, we go to London in a few weeks. 

Have a Great Weekend!!

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

What I'm Loving Wednesday and Hump Day Confessions
by JenniSixx


I confess that I'm not a fan of reality television.
 I don't watch any of the million reality shows that are on.
In fact, I wish their were better scripted shows than all the reality shows.
Law and Order  SVU is my favorite show.

I'm loving my New Balance sneakers.
This is my first pair but not my last. 
I cannot get over how comfortable they are. 
Had I known they were so comfortable I would have gotten a pair sooner. 

New Balance


I confess that I hate dressing up.
 I'm a jean and sneakers type of gal. I hardly ever wear a dress.
 I think you can wear nice jeans for anything.  
This drives my twin crazy.  She wanted to go to some fancy place for tea
 that had a dress code (no jeans) and I said no way.
 I think this comes from the fact, that I had to wear a uniform growing up. 
I hate being told what to wear and hate uniforms.


I'm loving the Matte Finish Topcoat by Butter London.
I love this shine free topcoat. It took me forever to find it and I'm so glad I did.
 While I do get gel manicures, I have my technician use this as the top coat.
Love how the matte look and haven't had any problems using it over gel manicures.



I confess that even though I live in New England,
 I'm not a New England Patriots fan. 
I root for the New York Giants. 
I have no problem wearing my Giants gear in Boston,
 although I do get some nasty glares.

That wraps up what I'm loving this week and some of my confessions.

Happy Hump Day!! 

What' are you loving this week or what is your confession??
