Friday Favorites

Finally, it's Friday.
Can you believe Christmas 
is a week from today??
Where has December gone?
I'm not even done with my shopping yet.

Here are my favorites this week.


Mary, Did you know? by Pentatonix

This is such a beautiful song.
They are so amazing.

TV Show

Games of Thrones Season 6

While it won't be on until April, I'm still
excited for Games of Thrones Season Six.
It looks so good!! 
If you aren't watching this, you do not
know what you are missing.
This is such a great show!!


Ambient Lighting Palette by Hourglass

I'm loving this highlighting palette.
The colors work alone or all together.
It isn't too shimmering, it just gives
a nice glow. Totally worth the money.



Gingerbread Cupcakes 

I love that we have a Georgetown Cupcake
here in Boston. I love me some gingerbread so of course I would
be a huge fan of a gingerbread cupcake.
Seeing as my Grandmother
loves them too, we always have them on
 Christmas Day and I cannot wait.

This time of year, it's so easy
to get caught up in the consumerism of Christmas.
Myself included. At the end of the day, 
that doesn't matter. What does matter
is spending time with our loved ones.
Thought this was a great reminder of that.

That wraps up my favorites this week.
I wish I could say I was
doing something fun this weekend
but I'm not. This girl is working. Yup, not one day off.
In fact, my next day off isn't until Christmas Day.
The joys of working two jobs this time of year.

Have a Wonderful Weekend!

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

Best, Marie

  3. Ahhh I can't wait until Game of Thrones comes back. I am so excited. I have to see sweet Jon Snow alive again.

  4. That gingerbread cupcake looks sooo good and is super cute too! I love that you and your grandma share a favorite! Hope you both enjoy them on Christmas Day! Wishing you a very Merry Christmas, sweet friend! xoxo - Brenda //

  5. Mary Did You Know is one of my all-time favorite Christmas songs! Gives me chills! Did you see Jordan the winner of the Voice sing it this week? it was amazing! I would give anything to have a cupcake shop in our town, that gingerbread man cupcake looks delicious and I wish I had one right now! Despite having to work, I hope your weekend is joyous and festive as I am sure you will make many people smile sweet Marie!!

  6. Love that Christmas quote. I am not done with my Christmas shopping yet either. Hopefully I can knock that out this weekend! I hope you have a great one!!!

  7. Oh how I love Charlie Brown! Those cupcakes are so cute!

  8. That palette sounds pretty amazing. I really need to learn how to highlight and contour properly. I've been so lazy with my makeup and do bare minimum.

  9. Georgetown Cupcakes is my JAM! Have you ever had their banana split cupcake? It is to die for! I could eat them every day. Thankfully, it is a special though and they usually only have it in Summer so I am not tempted to pop over there and scarf one down too often, lol!

  10. MFD is obsessed with Pentatonix right now. Did I even spell that correctly?

  11. Such a sweet Charlie Brown quote and perfect to keep in mind, as we get closer to Christmas. Have a great weekend!

  12. I've had my heart set on that ambient lighting palette for so long, glad to hear you've been loving it! We just started watching Game of Thrones, so I'm hoping we'll catch up by the season premiere. We're only on season 2 :-P

    Happy Friday gurlie <3

  13. I loved the Pentatonix song from the CMA's so good but it's not on iTunes. :( Christmas is all about being around loved ones.

  14. I love Mary Did You Know, and Penatonix is so great! A huge yum at that gingerbread cupcake!

  15. Aww, I love that quote! And YESSSS to GoT! I know some people aren't into it because of the violence, but the story-lines are SO GOOD! Hope you have a great weekend!

  16. Oh I could use a gingerbread cupcake right about now.
