Five for Friday

Five for Friday

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.

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!!
Best, Marie

  1. She brought me to tears on AGT - what an amazing voice and story!! Hope you have a great weekend girl! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  2. That's the most AMAZING thing! Thank you so much for sharing, and for the happy tears that are flowing down my face! Absolutely beautiful and oh so inspirational!!! I also agree on the attitude of gratitude making such a difference. I used to write down five things I'm thankful for each night before going to bed and it was such a helpful and happy habit! I've been meaning to get back to it, perhaps I should try today. ;) Much love to you and wishes for a wonderful weekend to come! xo

  3. gosh i cant get enough of the sugar fresh balms. i have them everywhere! and that happiness journal sounds amazing. i think i need to snag one! also i need to give myself a ban on shopping thats for sure. have a wonderful weekend!

  5. i wish my skin/lips didn't hate the sugar li pbalms because they come in such nice colours. i got a major chemical burn using them when i got it for my (sephora) bday gift :(

  6. Mandy Harvey... I cant even talk about it without getting teary eyed. How amazing is she!!!

  7. Love your new sunnies girl! And I'll co-sign everything you said about happiness. So true! Happy Friday sweet friend <3

  9. I haven't tried those lip balms but love that it comes in different colors. I can't live without lip balm so I'll need to check it out. Have a great weekend lady!

  10. Yes she is inspiring and it makes you scratch your head with people who have no challenges in their lives complain about their trivial problems. I want to try these sugar balms I don't do lipstick and was in Sephora the other day and tried on about 20 lipsticks and was reminded of why I don't wear it. But stains are more approachable for me and I really do want to try these.
