January Wish List

Wish List

With this cold weather, I have found myself 
inside more than not; which then leaves me plenty 
of time to browse online. As I have said many times, I'm
not a big online shopper but I do browse (maybe a bit too much).

Here is what has caught my eye.

Highlighting Powder

Concealer Creme

Zipped Tote

Card Holder

Cameo Pump

House Lantern

Berries Scented Candle

Ruffle Cuff Stripe Dress

Ruffle Top

Peplum Hem Tee

Dior Forever Foundation

Eye Mask


I have been trying to be very good
and only buy things that I need or really
love. There is no room in my closet (or my house)
for things that I don't love.  How many things have
I purchased that I end up regretting?? I plead the fifth
on that one but life is too short for regret!!

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

Coffee Talk..Monday Edition

Can we talk??

Does anyone remember the skit on 
Saturday Night Live (SNL), called
or am I'm dating myself here??

Does anyone even watch SNL anymore??
I'm the first to admit I haven't watched in
some time. Yikes, how many questions have
 I just asked? Anyways, I thought it would be fun to
have a little coffee talk.

Here goes...

..It's mid January (already) and I sort of feel like I'm running on fumes.
Perhaps it's the weather but I just feel blah. Am I the only one who
feels like this?? Guess, the January blues do exist.

...What is up with Instagram?
 I know I have complained about it 
before but it seems even worse now. My feed is always pictures
from days ago or ads?? Why can't they go back to way it was?

....I have been trying to limit my soda intake 
but I love me some diet ginger ale.
 It's so bad.

...I was planning a vacation only to realize I would 
be away for Easter. I have never missed a holiday with 
my Grandmother, so I had to change the dates.
I know my Grandmother wouldn't mind but I couldn't
live with it. At her age, well, everyday I get with her
is a blessing. 

...We always go out for brunch for Easter and I know 
she thoroughly enjoys it and I don't like to disappoint her.
Again, at her age...

...I hear a lot of people complain about getting older
and I really want to tell them to stop. Yes, getting older
is difficult but think about how many people get denied that.
My friend's sister's baby passed away at 9 months old.
Do you know how much she would give to have just one
more day with him? So, take every day as a blessing as it is
a gift.

Well that wraps up my Coffee Talk.
Now it's your turn, tell me
what is on your mind??
I love hearing from you!!
Best, Marie

Today I'm sharing all the things I'm loving.
Truth be told, I own all of these products as
most were Christmas and/or Birthday gifts.

Tocca Florence Perfume

High Beam

Illuminating Face Mask

Hair Ties

Waterproof Snow Boots


Eye Patches



Fleece Lined Leggings

I truly do love them and have been using them non-stop. 
With this crazy cold weather we have been having (it's been so cold,
even for a cold weather lover like me), I have been all
about being warm and comfortable. Looking cute, or good
has been secondary. I mean, it's absolutely freezing out!
Not getting frostbite is most important which can happen
in less than 30 minutes in this arctic like weather.
Although, it's now in the 30's which is literally
like a heat wave. You can go outside and it's
not that bad. Lol.

What are you loving lately?? 
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!
Best, Marie
