Friday's Favorites

It's Friday it's Friday!!
While it was a short week, 
it always feels so much longer.
I cannot believe it's the end of May.
Is it me or did May fly by??
Let's get right into my favorites this week.


Hey Mama-David Guetta ft. Nicki Minaj & Afrojack

Love love this song.  
David Guetta is so brilliant,
 he can do no wrong.

Superga 2210 COTW Slip-ons

True story, I was in the mall and my shoes were absolutely killing me.
I came across these and tried them on.
Instantly fell in love.
In fact, I loved them so much,
I walked out of the store wearing them.
They are so comfortable.
 My feet were so happy,
 they didn't hurt for the rest of the day.
I want them in every color.


Supergoop Defense Refresh Setting Mist SPF 50

A makeup setting spray with SPF 50, 
it's like all my dreams have been answered. 
This not only sets my makeup it also offers a protection of SPF 50.
 I bought the small bottle for my purse so that I can re-apply during the day.
They only problem is if you spray too close to your eyes, it may sting them. 
Also, it's not really a mist, so you have to be gentle when spraying it. 
Spray lightly or else it goes everywhere. 
I'm really happy with this and will re-purchase.


Chobani Greek Yogurt Simply 100

Every morning for breakfast, I have yogurt. 
I'm loving this one from Chobani.
 It's all natural vanilla Greek yogurt (NO GMO's) and it's so good.
I'm joining Chobani's #breakyoumake campaign.
National Break You Make Day is June 3rd.
Who doesn't need a break now and then?

I'm nominate my sister for a break.
She works full-time while dealing with a brain issue,
 has already had four surgeries for it and may require more in the future. 
She has never complained about it not even when she lost all her hair.
 In her spare time, she helps care for our Grandmother. 
She is always happy and positive. She sees the good in everything. 
I wish I was as strong and positive as her.
Who in your life deserves for a break?



How true is this quote??
To get what you want, you have to go after it.

That wraps up my Friday's Favorites. 
Heading down to Cape Cod this weekend.
I love going down there this time of year.
It's not yet too hot nor overfilled with tourists.

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.


I confess that I'm very lucky to get four weeks vacation a year 
and can carry over two years worth of time.
 However, I actually have more time than is allowed,  
so I have start using it or I'm going to lose it.
Planning how to use it, isn't easy due to various
factors, but I do not want to lose my time.
I know I could have bigger problems.

I'm loving my Mansur Gavriel bag.
 I bought it a few months ago and never really used it.
It's such a great work bag and I love how 
lightweight it is even with all the junk I carry.

I confess that I accidentally wore the same dress pants two days in a row.
Didn't even realize it, until I got home from work.
Perhaps, I shouldn't buy two of the exact same pairs. 

I'm loving my new vinyl Funko Pop figures. 
I keep them on my bookcase in my office.
 My office has alot of "personality" in it. ha.
While some work places frown upon that, 
they don't here. In fact, my boss loves it.
My former coworker, now one of my closet friends,
always says "I knew we were would be friends,
 the minute I walked into your office."

I confess that I'm planning our girls trip to Nantucket and I am blown away at
what these hotels charge per night. It's so insane. 
One place, for two two nights, TWO NIGHTS, would be over $1,000! 
 How insane is that? I know Nantucket is expensive but wow.
No wonder people say Nantucket is only for the rich, it really is. 

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

What are yours??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!
Best, Marie

Hump Day Confessions

Linking up with Melissa


I confess...

 ..that I have a bad habit of always doubting myself.
It's stems from my school days as a child.
In fact, I still do it these days as well. 
It's a bad habit that I'm trying to break.

 ...that I'm addicted to yet another tv show, Younger.
Have you seen this show?
 It's about a 40 year old, soon to be divorced, posing as a 26 year old 
working at a publishing company. It's so fantastic. 
It's a great binge watch, since each episode is only 22 minutes long. 
Thanks Biana!! 

..that I'm taking three days off work this week and I'm so excited.
 Well, not really. I'm not doing anything fun, I need to do a
 few things around my house before the summer
 arrives, you know spring cleaning. Plus, I have to use up
some  my time before the end of the year.

...that I'm dreading doing spring cleaning.
 It needs to be done but it's always a bigger project than I have anticipated.
I have created a list of what needs to be tackled so hopefully that will help.

...that once cleaning is done, I will feel so much better.
I just need to focus and get it done. 
Plus, who doesn't love clean space?
Clutter and messes give me anxiety.

...that I don't understand how people live with messy closets.
How can you find anything if you can't even get in it?

...that while I will have four days off, I have to work Sunday and Monday
at my part time job. Not sure, why i said I would work Monday.
I was not thinking when they asked me to work.

...that I watched the movie, Fifty Shades of Grey.
It wasn't great but it wasn't bad. I still can't get 
over that is the actor from The Fall.
 He is so creepy on that show.

...that I finally saw the movie, Cinderella and 
LOVED it. It was so good. I cannot wait 
for it to come out on DVD.

...that I struggle coming up with confessions.
Yes, it's because I'm perfect!! 
haha I kid I kid.

Those are my confessions this week.

What are yours??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!
Best, Marie

Photo Bomb-Animal Style

Yesterday, I wasn't in the best of moods. 
Work on Sunday was crazy busy,
 I literally was running around for 6 hours. 
My feet were throbbing and it just left me exhausted
on Monday morning. Hence, yesterday's lackluster post.

 After reading Kerri's post about starting Monday off in a positive way,
 I immediately started feeling better.  Soon after, My sister who is always
 positive and hates to see me in a bad mood, sent me these pictures.

Soon after, my mood was much better.
Monday Blues totally disappeared.
 I had to share these picture with all of you.

Could you imagine being photo-bombed by an animal?? 
How funny are these pictures??
They totally made me smile.
So much for a Kodak moment.
I hope they brought a smile to your face.

What do you do to get rid of a bad mood??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!

Friday Favorites

Has this been a long week or what?
I have had something every night after work and
 I'm just glad that the weekend is here.
 Let's get right into it, here are my favorites this week.


Flashlight by Jessie J 

(Pitch Perfect 2 Soundtrack)
I'm so excited for Pitch Perfect 2!!
I loved the first one and cannot wait to see the second one. 
Just hope it's as good as the first one.
This is the new song from the movie and I just love it.
Jessie J has such a great voice.


I'm sure I'm not alone when I say that the my pores go crazy this time of year.
 A friend recommended this mask and I'm so glad she did. 
This mask really works to get all that dirt and oil out of your pores. 
My skin looked clearer and brighter as soon as I washed it off. 
Word of warning, it is drying so I only use it twice a week.
Glam Glow


Draper James 
Have you checked out Reese Witherspoon's new shopping website?? 
I love everything, she has fantastic taste and great style.
My only issue is some of the items are really pricey. 
It reminds me of CWonder which I loved 
but also found to be pricey. I hope they have good sales.

Draper James


Pitch Perfect 2

Since my song this week is from this movie, it's only fitting that I'm
excited for this movie which comes out this weekend. 
I LOVED the first one.
 I just hope this one is as good as the first one. 
Let's me honest, the second movie never is but I still hope.


I have been told (more than once) that I talk to much.
 I'm making a great effort to limit it. 
I'm also trying to live a little more simple.
 Not be a so attached to material things nor constantly looking at my phone.
 As a result, I thought this was a perfect quote. 

That wraps up my Friday's Favorites.
This has been a very busy week for me so 
I'm hoping to do a little bit 
of nothing this weekend.
 After a busy week, I prefer to have a quite 

Have a Wonderful Weekend

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