Outfit for Spring

Spring Had Sprung

Happy Friday!!

I haven't done an outfit post 
in like forever.
Thought it was about time to do one.

This is an outfit I created a while back.
It's still a great outfit for today.

I think I may wear something similar 
for Easter Brunch. 

Have a Wonderful Weekend.
Happy Easter!!

Confessions & WHP

I confess
that I'm struggling to come up 
with spring outfits that are stylish but still cute.
How fab is this outfit?
Perfect for this time of year.

I confess
that I love Cadbury Creme Eggs.
I totally need to make these brownies.
Don't they look so good??

I confess
that I'm addicted to highlighting right now.
This pin illustrates how easy it is to do.

I confess
that I love travel hacks.
Some of these hacks are so clever.
Now, I just need to plan a trip.
I confess
that a good outfit can make any day better.
A good outfit makes everything seem

I confess
that when I get nervous I talk too much
and then it makes me think people don't like me.
No one likes someone who doesn't know how to shut up.
I always leave a conversation thinking well 
that person totally thinks I'm crazy.
Honestly, I think I may be a bit.

Those are my confessions this week.

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

Spring Wish List

Seeing as it is now spring, I thought it would be the perfect time
to show you all my spring wish list. Now, this really is just a wish list.
I have been doing really good at not shopping.
Except for that purse  (early Easter gift) 
that may have just followed me home.

Here is what I'm wishing for.

How gorgeous is this dress? 
The color is absolutely stunning.
Too bad, I have no place to wear it to.
Lela Rose

I need more black clothing like I need a hole
in my head. What can I say, I just love black.
I think this outfit is very chic. 

I love anything chambray!
How fab is this dress??
Perfect for a casual Friday.

I have been wanting to try this cream for so long
but it's expensive. I wish I could get my hands on
a sample of it. I'm not sure I want to put the money 
out for something I may or may not like.
I know big problem.

I'm loving these sandals and
 think they would go with so much.
I'm not sure these would work 
well with my foot issue but it is nice to dream.

Ok, I do own this bag but in navy.
But I'm loving this color.
In fact, I think I might like it better than 
my navy one.
Ugh, maybe I should sell the one I have
and get this one. 
Bergdorf Goodman

That is my spring wish list? 
Just looking...haha

Tell me, what is on your spring wish list??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!

Friday Five

It's Friday!!
Let's get right to it.
Here are my Friday Five.


I Know What You Did Last Summer by Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello

I'm so loving this song.
It is so catchy.
I love when it comes on at work.
Thank you Shazam, without you
I would never know who sang the song.


Games of Thrones-Season Six

I'm so excited that GOT is coming back.
I feel like I have been waiting forever for 
this season to start. 
April 24th cannot come soon enough.


Me Before You by JoJo Moyes
I saw the trailer for this movie and loved it.
When I heard that it was actually a book, I decided to 
read it. I just started it and absolutely LOVE it.
I cannot stop reading it. 
Although, I have a feeling this is gonna be 
a tear-jerker and I really shouldn't read it while I'm on the train.
I don't want to be the crazy lady on the train crying.
Have already been that person!


Panda Makeup Bag

I picked this up the other day at Primark.
Isn't it a adorable??
I love that store so much.
Oh and it was $5 dollars.


Lately, I have been feeling that I'm just existing,
not really living. So when I came across this quote,
it really jumped out at me.
I need to stop existing and start living.


That wraps up my Friday Five.

Have a Wonderful Weekend.

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

I confess 
that I have been listening to the 
Grease Live soundtrack non-stop.
It just makes me smile.

I confess
that I'm loving the warmer weather
but everyday I feel like I have nothing to wear.

I confess
that I got a new band for my watch and
it's like having a brand new watch.
I'm loving it so much, that I can't stop wearing it.

I confess 
that I always try to respond to comments.
Sometimes, it takes me a few days but I try hard to respond 
as soon as I have a few free minutes. I do find it a bit disheartening when 
you comment on someone's blog and they don't respond. like at all.

I confess
that sometimes my fear of the unknown holds me back.
An opportunity was lost because I was too scared to take a risk.
My fear literally held me back and I lost out.
It has been bothering me ever since.
Then the other day, I was perusing Pinterest and saw this quote.
Fear will no longer hold me back.
I confess
that I have been trying to speak more softly.
Someone in my office complained that I'm to loud.
 Now that I'm aware of it, I have been trying really hard
not to speak to loud. But now, everyone is like is everything ok??
Are you sick??
Why do you sound like that??
Are you sure everything is ok with you??

Those are my confessions this week.

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

Everyday Makeup Faves

Everyday Makeup

Today I'm talking about my everyday makeup faves.
These are the products, I use every single day.
They have become my favorites.

Pixi Flawless & Poreless Primer
To be honest, I change primers alot.
I sort of feel one works well for awhile and then just stops working.
Maybe it's me, I'm not really sure. I have been using this primer lately and really like it.
This primer helps to minimize my pores and helps to keep my makeup looking good all day.

Nars Larger than Life Long-wearing Eyeliner
I love this eyeliner! It doesn't move and goes 
on very smoothly. It literally lasts for hours.
I wear the color Rue Saint-Honor, it is a deep royal blue.

YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils Babydoll Mascara 
I have tired many many mascaras and I 'm always going back to this one.
It just makes my lashes look thick and voluminous. It also
does not flake off nor smudge which is why I love it so much.

Bare Minerals Bareskin Serum Concealer
This is one the best concealers, I have ever used.
Concealer is another thing that I'm constantly changing.
I have been using this one for a few months now and 
really like the coverage it gives. It also does not cake
under my glasses which usually happens with most concealers.
The only thing is I find that it does wear off after a few hours
and I have to reapply. 

La Mer The Powder
This is a setting/finishing powder but I use it 
as foundation. It makes my skin look flawless.
While pricey, you only need to use a little bit of it.
A little goes a long way. Well worth the money. 
I'm still using the jar I got over the summer.
And yes, I use it everyday.

Urban Decay Lipstick and Lipliner in Liar
I have been wearing this color since finding it last year.
It's a good replacement color for my Tom Ford, Pink Abode, which
was discontinued a few years ago. Sometimes, I mix the lip pencil 
with other lip colors but for the most part, wear these two together.

Hourglass Ambient Lightening Palette
(not pictured)
I use this as my bronzer/highlighter. I LOVE this palette.
You can use the colors alone or all together.
It just give you a nice natural glow.
I have heard this pallette works better on paler skin
than olive skin. I'm pretty pale so it works perfectly.
However, if you have olive skin, you may want to try it 
before you purchase it. This palette is pricey.
For me, it is well worth it.

That is my everyday makeup faves.

I will be honest, I do not leave the house without some makeup on my face.
 Call me vain, but I do not feel comfortable leaving the house
without some on. I feel more confident when I'm wearing makeup.

People always comment that it never looks like I'm actually 
wearing makeup. But trust me, I am. The key is to use makeup 
to enhance not cover up or hide. That is just what I do.

What is your everyday makeup faves??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!

Friday Five

It's Friday!!
Actually, this week hasn't been too bad.
The weather has been so nice lately.
I think the good weather is 
making everyone a little more happier.
Me included.

Here is my Friday Five.


Piece by Piece by Kelly Clarkson
I first heard this song when Kelly performed it on American Idol.
I immediately had to go buy it. 
I love it so much! 


BRIGHTMUD Eye Treatment by GlamGlow
My dark circles have been terrible lately.
Worse than normal and I have no idea why.
I started using this eye treatment every night
and let me tell you, my dark circles have 
completely lighten! I love this stuff.
I'm not sure if you are really suppose
to use it every night but I have been and I 
can see a HUGE difference in my dark circles.


Marimekko for Target
Target announced their next designer collaboration
and it will be with the Finnish design house Marimekko.
It comes out April 17th and I cannot wait.
I love their fun colorful prints.



Grease Live on DVD
I watched this when it aired on Fox and loved it.
So of course, I had to buy it when it came out on DVD.
It is a bit cheesy but I love it!
Plus, I totally have a crush now on Aaron Tveit.
He is so talented and oh so handsome.



The older I get the less patience
i have for toxic friends.
In an effort to be more positive,
I no longer tolerate people
who try to bring me down.
Positive peeps only.

That wraps up my Friday Five.
So happy that it is the end of the week.
I'm hoping to indulge in a little
retail therapy this weekend.
Shopping makes everything better.

Have a Wonderful Weekend.

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

Buckingham Palace Expedition

It's no secret that I love England and Royalty.

JenniSixx sent me this a few weeks ago and I was
like Oh my! 

The Buckingham Palace Expedition takes you on a virtual tour of the palace. 
See some of the Palace's State Rooms and works of art from the Royal Collection.
Learn the history of the Palace and use how the State Rooms
are used today by The Queen for official events.

As a royal watcher and a history buff, this was absolutely amazing.
I was thrilled to finally see inside the Palace.
Every time I have been in London, the palace has not been 
opened to the public. 
One day I will see it. 

Are you a royalty watcher?
If so, which Royal Family?
Let me know, I love hearing from you!
Best, Marie
