The Ultimate 2017 Christmas Gift Guide- Men

Today, I'm linking up with OwenBrittany, and Emily
for The Ultimate 2017 Christmas Gift Guide.  
Today, it is all about the Men!!

Fleece Pullover

Sweater Jacket




Tech Gloves

Game of Thrones T-shirt

Valet Tray

Cashmere Beanie


Taco Socks

Wet/Dry Shaver System

Portable Speaker


Men's Fragrance

Baseball Cufflinks

That wraps up my Gift Guide for men. 
To be honest, it can be challenging to find a gift for that
special man in your life. I find that sticking to the basics or 
men's staples (classics) is always a good idea.

Do you find it hard to shop for men??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!

Currently...The Twin Edition

Hey Hey!
It's the Twin's.
We thought it would be fun to do a
  currently post, twin edition.

This is what we are currently up to.

 drinking //
Brown Sugar Cinnamon Iced Coffee by Dunkin Donuts.
It's a little bit of sugar cookie mixed with snickerdoodle and it
is so freaking good. And yes, ICED. Always iced,
year round, even if there is snow on the ground.

 listening //
Christmas Music, ALL DAY LONG.
Note-This is because Marie controls the radio in the car.
Jenn is not a fan at all!! You do not listen to Christmas
music before Thanksgiving. She has been listening to it
non-stop since November 1st

This is one the BEST Christmas Songs,
according to Marie only!!

 watching //
 Friends on Netflix. We cannot stop
watching this show. It really was a great show and
oh so funny.
  How you doin???

 wanting //
less Uber and Lyft drivers on the road. It's becoming a huge problem in
the city. They pull over anywhere on the road to pick up or drop off. They are
not paying attention to the road because they are too busy looking at their
GPS. The other day, we saw one go down a one way because he was
not paying attention. He almost hit all the people walking on the sidewalk.
It's a very small street that he went down.  Sorry, but they are making traffic
 even worse than it already is. Boston streets cannot handle all
these extra cars on the road.

 enjoying //
All the holiday lights!! We try to do one holiday thing
a week. This week we are going to see Blink at Fanueil Hall.
Last week, we went to the Enchanted Village. It's a great way
to stay in the holiday spirit but it's not over kill.
Note-Jenn is already tired of all this Christmas music.
 It's like they just play the same five songs over and over again.

loving //
This purse.
I love having a tote that has a zippered closure.
And the leather is gorgeous.Even, Jenn likes it and she
 usually doesn't like my taste in handbags.
Although, it should be noted that she would want one in black.

wearing //
We have been wearing our vests non-stop.
Marie's is navy, Jenn's is black.Yes, we walk around with the same
vests on. Such a twin move!!

smelling //
Sugar Cookies!!
This candle smells just like freshly baked sugar cookies.

daydreaming //
our upcoming trip to NYC for our birthday!!
We cannot wait!! There is something very special about being in NYC
over the holidays. It's a bit magical. 

sales //
Bath and Body Works 3-Wick Candles sale ($8 each) is 
Saturday, December 3rd. We will be stocking up!! 

sales  two //
Case app  is giving all Twin Living 
readers 20% off this holiday season!!

New iPhone Case and a Giveaway

Recently, I upgraded to the iPhone 8 Plus. 
The main reason why I decided on the iPhone 8 plus over the iPhone X, 
was I really didn't want to have to get a new case.I really 
love my pink marble case from Case App.

A few weeks later, Case App contacted me and asked me
if I would like to design a new case. It was perfect timing because I had 
cracked my case but was still using it. Yes, I really do drop my phone ALOT.
So, having a good tough case is key for me. 

They have so many option. You can upload your own design or  
you can pick one of their designs and customize it (as I did). 
How fab is that? You know what I say if it's moving, 
monogram it!!

Here are some of the designs I thought of getting.


Pinkish Ice Cream

Dream Big

White Marble and Pink

These are the ones I picked. I got the iPhone 8 Plus
 Tough cases. I prefer the tough cases because they are actually
two cases in one which give the phone added protection. For someone
like me who always drops their phone, I need it.

And now for the best part, Case App is
giving one away to a Twin Living Reader!!
How fab is that?? They have all kinds of phone cases
not just ones for iPhone's. 

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Huge thank you to Case App for my case and for this giveaway.
Good Luck!

How would you design your case??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!
Best, Marie

The Ultimate 2017 Christmas Gift Guide-Kids Edition

Today, I'm linking up with Owen, Brittany, and Emily
for The Ultimate 2017 Christmas Gift Guide.  
Today, it is all about the children!!

Lego Winter Holiday Train

Olaf Ornament

Book and Jammies

Rocking Horse

Batcave Challenge

Road Way Activity Rug

Crystal Growing Kit

Coco Chanel


Doll House

Beauty and the Beast

Unicorn Puzzle

It's so much fun shopping for children.  At least, for me it is, I love
going to the toy story. Perhaps that is because I'm a big kid at heart.
Although, I do always check with the parents before purchasing a gift to
 make sure I'm getting a gift they would like. Nothing worse than
 buying a gift for a child, to have them disappointed. I once got my friends' 
daughter a barbie doll (I was told to get that one), and the little girl was 
NOT happy about the barbie, at all. She had no problem 
telling me how unhappy she was. I felt terrible that she was so 
unhappy with my gift.  It has stuck with me ever since.

Do you like shopping for children??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!
Best, Marie
