Wish List Wednesday

Fourth of July Wish List

Charming Charlie


American Rag

Vineyard Vines

I'm all about festive attire for the holidays
and Fourth of July is no difference. Since
it's right around the corner, I thought 
it would be fun to create a whole wish list
based on red, white, and blue. I wouldn't mind
having any of the above items in my closet.
Still just wishing, still not shopping.
Go me!! Lol.

That's What I Like by Bruno Mars

This song has been on repeat all week long. 
Bruno Mars can do no wrong.

Metro Crop Kick Flare Pants

Before I started my shopping ban, I picked
up these pants at Athleta. I will be honest,
I only got them because they made my legs
look GREAT. And they have pockets, it's
so hard to find casual pants with pockets.
If you are looking for a casual pair
of pants that make your legs look amazing,
you have to try these out!! You'll love them.

Pink Drink Starbucks

I finally tried the "Pink Drink" at Starbucks.
It was quite refreshing and I really liked it.
However, it has a ton of sugar in it so I won't
be ordering it very often. Maybe only
on those really really hot days.

TURN-Season Four (Final Season)

What can I say, I'm a huge history buff. 
I just binged watch season three last week.
 On Saturday, season four, which is also the final season,
 will begin. This is a must see show for any
history buff.  And, who doesn't love a good spy story. 


That is what caught my eye this week.
I'm sure I'm not alone when I say, 
was this a long week or what??
I felt like it was never gonna end!!

Have a Wonderful Weekend!!

What caught your eye this week??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!

Wishing Wednesday

Lilly Pulitzer

The Loft

Kendra Scott

Tom Ford



Kiehl's Body Butter

To be honest, I almost broke my 
shopping ban this weekend for that tote bag
It is gorgeous in real life, gorgeous.
Plus, it is also pebble leather which I love. 
But in the end, I decided not to buy it.  Let's
 be real, I don't need another purse. 

Not shopping is harder than I thought it would be.
I feel like the temptation is all around me. 
But, I'm no quitter, so again this week, 
I'm just wishing. 

What's on your wish list??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!
Best, Marie

The Winter Trilogy

I'm a huge fan of Elin Hilderbrand
All of her books are set on the Island of Nantucket.
They are great beach reads.  Also, she is a twin which
I just found out. Had no idea she was a twin,
maybe that is why I enjoy her books so much.
Twin thing is a real thing!!

For Christmas, Jenn bought me the,The Winter Trilogy.  
It's about a family that gathers on Nantucket for the Holidays.
It's a story about  family, love,lost, heartbreak, hope, 
joy, and Christmas.

Winter Stroll is the 
first book.
(Ms. Hilderbrand's first  novel 
about Christmas.)

Winter Street is the
second book.

Winter Storms,is the third
and final book. 

I just finished reading them.
 Don't judge, I work alot. haha
I loved the series so much that
I was truly sad to see it end. 

If you are looking for a good beach read,
please check this trilogy out. You won't 
be disappointed. And no, I don't think
there is anything wrong with reading a book
about Christmas (and winter) in the summer.
Heck, I do listen to Christmas music year around.

Are you a fan of Elin Hilderbrand??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!
Best, Marie

Mandy Harvey

Let me start with this, get your kleenex out for this.
This is a must watch! 
Mandy is a singer and she is deaf, having lost
her hearing ten years go. Singing an original song called Try; she
will blow your mind. What a beautiful and powerful song
she wrote and performed. She is so talented
and truly an inspiration.
Just watch!!


Not to sound like a cliche but this is so true. Happiness 
is a state of mind.  A positive mine truly makes a
 difference. It's hard to remain positive all the time 
but I thought the idea behind this journal is brilliant.
Heck, you can even create your own.I'm a true believer
 in happy mind, happy life. 


Warby Parker "Raglan" Sunnies

I picked up these sunnies a few weeks ago at 
Warby Parker and forgot to share them. I love Warby Parker
 as they have  great  glasses and sunglasses at prices that
 don't break the bank. It infuriates me how expense prescription 
glasses can be, especially for me, because I need high index lens. 

Warby Parker

Sugar Lip Balm in Bloom

I love these lip balms!! I always have one in my bag.
Bloom is the newest color and I really want to try it.
Since, I'm on a shopping ban, I can only 
buy this when I'm finished with the one I have or
unless I lose this one or it melts in my bag.
Haha...a shopping ban is so hard for me.


Those are the five things that caught
my eye this week. 

Have a Wonderful Weekend.

Now, tell me, what caught your eye this week?
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!

Wish List

Watermelon Popsicles

Flamingo Float

Charlotte Tilbury

French Girl Rose Lip Polish

Charming Charlie



J. Crew Factory

It's been one week since I implemented my
shopping ban. So far so good. I'm so 
proud of myself. One week without shopping.
Woohoo! Who am I?  Lol. So once again I am 
merely just wishing...I wouldn't mind having any of the 
above items in my closet. Well, that is not true.
The float would be for my friend's beach house. 
It's way too big for my closet.

What's on your wish list?
Let me know, I love hearing from you!
