Yes, you read that right, I'm on vacation!!
Finally, using all that vacation time I have
 accrued.  To be honest, I haven't had a proper
vacation in like forever. A few days off here and there
do not count.  

The twins are off on a jet plane.

I will be back to blogging next week.
It will be a TWIN ADVENTURE, if you would like
follow along on Instagram...
Shameless plug.

I'm Mree43.

Jenn is JenniSixx.

Have a FANTASTIC Week.

Five for Friday

Castle on the Hill-Ed Sherrin

Love this song!!
Been on repeat all week.

Castle on the Hill-Aaron Tveit

To be honest, I like Aaron's version better.
I wish Aaron would do another album.
He has such a wonderful voice and 
he is very very good looking.

Crosswalk the Musical: Beauty and the Beast

James Corden is brilliant and this skit 
with the cast of Beauty and the Beast 
is hilarious!! Do yourself a favor and watch it.
You will have tears in your eyes from laughing so hard.

Marion Kelly

I'm so in love with this little girl. She is everything!!
Come on, look at those pink glasses!!
Please read it, you too will be laughing for days.


That wraps up my Five for Friday.
I'm planning a weekend of pampering myself.
Going for a mani, a pedi and a facial!
All about me. LOL.

Have a Wonderful Weekend.

Makeup Wish List

Armani High Precision Retouch Concealer

Urban Decay Self-Adjusting Complexion Primer

Lipstick Queen

Charlotte Tilbury

I love going into stores and play around in the makeup departments.
Being a makeup junkie is hard. I'm always on the hunt for 
new makeup. I was very lucky to get a few samples of the above items.
I have only tired the Eve Lom Cleanser and the Armani Foundation.
Both things which I'm really loving.

Have you tired any new makeup products??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!

10 Fun Facts

I only wear fun socks. Today, my socks have Olaf on them.
 No one can see them because I'm wearing boots.

I can never have one favorite, it's usually two. I blame that on being a twin, 
you know two of everything.

I'm drawn to the color pink. If I see it in a store, I will walk right to it. 
Even if it is a garden tool, which I have no use for. I don't garden.

I am the funnier twin! It's true, I even won an award for it.
 Sorry, Jenn.

I laugh at my own jokes. 
All the time.

Sometimes,I browse the drugstore. 
Just to get that "shopping" fix.

I cannot go to Target and not go to the dollar spot. Yes, I know it's not called 
the dollar spot anymore but I will forever refer to
 it as the dollar spot. I don't even know what it is called now.

I look like a completely different person 
when I'm not wearing my glasses. I look odd. It drives
me batty that I couldn't wear my glasses in my drivers license photo.
And now, when I go renew my passport, I can't have my glasses
on either. I do look like another person. 

If I had a dollar for every time someone told me their middle name was Marie, 
I would probably have a couple thousand dollars or more. 

My head is filled with alot of useless information. In fact, I love useless
information. I find it useful. Pun intended.
Such as did you know that the last Queen of Romania 
was named Marie. I guess, I would find that somehow
useful to me. You the reader, not so much.

Now it is your turn, telling something fun about you!
I love hearing from you!
Best, Marie 

Linking up with Biana and Meghan

Spring Wish List

Spring is just around the corner and
I have my eye on a few new things.

Here they are. 

Sisley-Paris Eye Contour Mask

I received a sample of this
and OMG! It works so well.
Dark circles be damned.

I love how simple and elegant this 
bracelet is. Thinking about adding it
to my collection. 
David Yurman

How fab would this top be 
for spring? Throw on a blazer
and you are all good.

I have an obsession with mini wallets.
These are perfect for running errands
and not carrying around a big wallet.
Kate Spade

I love these shoes so much and
could see myself wearing
them all the time and I just love the color.

As you can see my wish list is
too big but it is a bit pricey.
Champagne dreams on a beer budget.
Story of my life. haha

What's on your wish list??

Write it Out


My life ,while wonderful, can at times
be very stressful. I'm always working or on
the go, with little time for myself.  At times, I have found myself
surrounded by anxiety and stress. So much in fact, I developed
TMJ.  It was so bad and out of control that I actually broke 
my mouth guard.  My dentist, who is so fantastic, recommended 
that I start keeping a journal. Like you know Dear Diary, sort of thing. 
Being the jerk, that I am, was like "yeah ok, sure will try it." 
Didn't think it would work at all but my TMJ was so
bad, I was willing to give it a shot. 

For the past few months, every day or every other day, I take
a few minutes and write, whatever
pops into my head. Some days I write alot
and other days I don't.  Wouldn't you know that after a few weeks,
my TMJ was getting better and I was feeling so much better.
I was so stressed that I didn't even realize I was stressed.
I'm happier, more positive, and overall feel better.
So many great benefits, just by putting pen to paper.

If you suffer from anxiety or stress, try keeping a journal.
It will make you feel better. And for the times, when you don't have 
pen and paper, type some notes down in your phone. It works as well. 

How do you cope with anxiety and stress??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!

Five on Friday

Woohoo, the weekend is here.
Let's get right to my Five for Friday.

It's Quiet Uptown-Kelly Clarkson, Hamilton Mixtape.

This song is hauntingly beautiful
and I have been listening to it non-stop.

This is Us

Hands down one of the BEST shows EVER!
If you are not watching it, you are completely missing out.
Watch it.  It will make you laugh, it will make you
hard ugly cry that may give you an asthma attack but
it is so worth it!! It's one of the few shows
that really truly shows you real life. Just watch it!!


How great are these slip on sneakers??
I saw them when I was at Target and knew I had to have them.
The color is so pretty and they are really comfortable.
Perfect for spring!!

The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton

I just finished this book and loved it. It is a story inside a story
that will keep you guessing until the end. It's about a little girl who
was abandoned and taken in by a family. It wasn't until her 
21st birthday that she finds out the truth. She spends her adult life 
trying to find out who she really is and why she was abandoned. 
I could hardly put this book down.
One of the best books, I have read in awhile.
The Forgotten Garden


You learn more from failure than success.
Don't be afraid of failure.

That is my Five for Friday.
This weekend I'm going for eyelash extensions.
I already had them and only one person noticed them.
I don't think they stand out on me because I wear
glasses. haha. We shall see.

Have a Wonderful Weekend!!
