I Confess..


...that I cannot believe that it is already July.
Is time flying by or is it just me?
It's like summer is almost over.

...that I haven't styled my hair in days.
I have been wearing it in a crazy messy
bun for days. It's so much easier.

...that I have yet to spend a day out at the beach.
Haven't had any time and the weather has been lousy.

...that I have been trying to not waste money. However, I have been 
 getting gel manicures to stop my bad habit of biting my nails.
Plus, I like having pretty nails.

...that when I get stressed, I chew gum.
I don't really chew it, I snap it.
And, I cannot stand when someone is snapping 
their gum. Yet, there I am doing the same thing.

...that I hate the smell of seafood.
Since it's the summer, it's everywhere.

...that I get so mad when cosmetic companies discontinue a product.
I'm still angry that Tom Ford discontinued my favorite lipstick color, Pink Adobe.
Just thinking about it annoys me. 
It takes forever to find a color I love and when I do I'm very loyal to it.
Then it's just discontinued, for no reason. 
I'm still trying to find a dupe for it.
Not having any luck.

...that I had put myself on a shopping ban for the month of June. 
Yeah, I didn't do as well I hoped.  Major Fail.
Will try again.

...that my 52 Week Money Challenge has been hard for me this year.
I keep missing weeks as I completely forget about it.
It's such an easy way to save money 
yet I keep forgetting to keep up with it. 

..that I hate when people invade my personal space. 
Like why do you need to stand so close?
If I can see all the filings in your mouth,
 you are standing WAY to close to me. 

Those are my confessions this week.

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

Pin It!


  1. I haven't made it to the beach yet either. Need to make that happen this weekend. The smell of seasfood makes me gag so I feel your pain. New England life for sure.

  2. I honestly think getting gel manicures will help you not bite your nails and they will grow and then you can save money by just doing manicures :) xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  3. A shopping ban never works for anyone haha! Hope you have a fun July! :)

  4. Nothing like good ol confessions! And gel manicures will definitely help your problem, so it's not wasting money :)

  5. i totally want to try the 52 week money challenge. my shopping ban starts today, eeep! and yes why do they always discontinue a product i love! always bloody happens.

  6. I can't believe it is July! Somebody told me the year is already half over... WHAT?!

  7. Ha I love the gum post... don't we all do that? I cannot believe it's July either!

  8. I was so in love with Dior airbrush bronzer. Then they just discontinued it with no warning. I found the serial code and called everywhere and then stockpiled it. I feel like they need to make something similar when they do that!

  9. ooo, chewing gum is a good stress reliever! I tend to eat, lol.

    I can't believe it's July either!

  10. i haven't styled my hair since 2013? LOL seriously....i just put it back in a ponytail and that's it.
    i'm trying to teach my 7yr old about personal space; she likes to get all up in your grill when she's excited about something so i actually had to resort to the dirty dancing scene when johnny tells baby "this is your (dance) space, this is my (dance) space" using my arms (and omitting the "dance" part) so she understood that people need distance!

  11. Sorry Tom Ford discontinued your fav color and the weather has been lousy. Sending some sunshine and warmth up your way! And yay for gel manis, there's nothing like a pretty manicure that actually lasts :)

  12. I realllllly dislike when cosmetic companies dislike my favorite products. MAC discontinued my absolute favorite blush, but I found it on Ebay and stocked up. I'm over this weather. Every time I plan something outdoors, it rains. Which is another reason why I haven't bothered doing my hair. Messy buns for the win! Good luck on your renewed freeze and 52 Week challenge!

  13. Girl, I cant believe its July either. What happened to my birthday month?!? And its funny you should say something about your hair... I havent done mine since my birthday celebration on Sunday haha! Whoops! And yes to personal space. I have a "habit" of elbowing people who dont respect my personal space!

  14. I can't believe it's July - I have had so many moments today when I was just in disbelief that we're already to this part of the year!

  15. I spent one day at the beach this summer, I hope to get there this weekend. And gosh I work in Soho so I know all about spending too much money. And I can not even count the all the products I like that have been discontinued.
