A Day in Boston-Twin Style

JenniSixx and I love playing tourist in our hometown of Boston.

This is what a Day in Boston with the Twins would be like.

Caffe Nero
Our first stop would be Caffe Nero.
We loved this coffee shop when we 
were in London and we were thrilled
when they opened one here.
Not only is their coffee good, they have 
delicious sandwiches and baked goods.

Museum of Fine Arts
After our morning coffee,
we would head over to the Museum of Fine Arts.
We both love getting lost here.
So much to see and do.

    Newbury Street  
      After getting our Art on, we would head over to Newbury Street
to indulge in a little retail therapy. Newbury street is filled
with great shops and restaurants.

Bristol Lounge
From Newbury Street we would head to the Bristol Lounge at 
The Fours Seasons Hotel.
They have the best burgers, The Bristol Burger, in town. 

Boston Public Gardens
After lunch, we would walk thru The Boston Public Gardens
It's such a pretty Garden. No matter the year, 
it's always pretty. Even when it's filled with lots of snow.

Faneuil Hall
From the gardens, we would walk over
 to Faneuil Hall/Quincy Market. It's an outdoor market
with shops and restaurant. There is always something going on there.
Some people think of it is a tourist trap, things can be expensive 
but we love it. It is always busy with people.

North End
From Faneuil Hall, we would walk over to the North End.
The Italian part of Boston and one of our favorite places!!
You can visit The Old North Church and Paul Revere's House.
There is so much to see and do. Oh and the food. 
So many fabulous restaurants. And for desert, we have to go to
Caffe Victoria. They have the BEST tiramisu. No trip 
is complete without getting one.

To find great events in Boston, visit Eventbrite.
It's the place to find all the happening in the city, 
to plan your own events and sell tickets online!

Do you like playing tourist in your city? 
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!

Friday Favorites

Can I tell you how excited I am that it is Friday??
I'm so excited because I'm off tomorrow.
Finally, a day off!!
I so need it.

Here are my favorites this week.


No Doubt About It by Jessie Smollett and Pitbull

I'm obsessed with the show Empire and fell in love in with 
this song when it was played on last week's episode.
Of course, I had to buy it. 
Love love love it.
If you are not watching Empire, you are missing out.
It's one of the best shows around.


Glow Tonic by Pixi

I'm loving this stuff.
After using it, I can see why it has a cult following.
This stuff works!! It really makes skin brighter and clearer.
It also is really hard to find in stores.
 I must have went to five Targets before I found it. 
The good news is, it is sold online so you can just buy it online,
 if you can't find it in stores.

Be warned, it can be drying so I don't use it everyday.
A few times a week is all my skin needs.




Can we talk about how much I LOVE this store?
It recently opened up here in Boston and
 I cannot get enough. 
I'm seriously addicted to this store.
They have cute stuff that is very inexpensive.
I'm loving all the home stuff.
It's four floors filled with lots of great goodies.
I could do a whole separate post of all the things 
I have already purchased.
This is my new favorite store.



I saw this quote the other day
and knew it would be perfect for
 today's favorites.


That wraps up my Friday Favorites.
I'm so happy to have a day off tomorrow.
The only thing I plan on doing is relaxing
and getting my nails done. haha.
My nails need some TLC.

Have a Wonderful Weekend.

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

Wanderlust Wednesday



I'm wanderlusting to go back to Italy.
JenniSixx and I went years ago and had a blast.

Lucky for Jenn, I had been before 
and was happy to show her my favorite spots
in Florence and Rome.

During my last two trips, I was lucky
enough to travel with a translator,
which made the trip even better.
He knew all the places to go off the beaten bath.

We are planning a family vacation for 2016!!
To say we are excited is an understatement.
It's gonna be so much fun!!

Where are you wandering lusting to go??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!
Best, Marie

Downtown by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis
I love this song!!
Been listening to it non-stop.
It has such a great beat.


Chubby Stick Sculpting Highlight

I'm all about highlighting these day
and this stick is perfect for that.
It's easy to use and very blend-able.
I use it all over my face and 
it gives me a nice natural looking highlight.
Love this little chubby stick.


Plaid Tunic Pullover
I picked this up the other day at Old Navy and
cannot wait to wear it. 
It's the perfect layering shirt
and it's navy!!

Old Navy


Have you seen this show??
It's about FBI  recruits training at the Quantico 
base in Virginia when one of them is suspected of 
being a sleeper terrorist.
OMG, it's so GOOD!!
I'm completely hooked.

Always leave time to say the important words.
For you never know what will happen.
A dear friend lost his sister this week and 
was not able to say goodbye before she passed.
Leaving him absolutely heartbroken.
This quote really struck a cord with me.

That wraps up my Friday Favorites.
I wish I could say I have something fun planned
but I do not. I have to work all weekend long.
Yes, I know I work way too much.

Have a Wonderful Weekend.
