Wish List Wednesday...Gucci Edition

It started with the purchase of my little wallet...
now I'm obsessed with everything GUCCI.

They just have been knocking it out of 
the park lately and I'm just in love!!

If money was no object...
still just wishing.


Navy Dress


Wicker Shoulder Bag


Satin Bow Slides

Small Shoulder Bag

Matelasse Mini Bag

Has Gucci stepped it up or what???
Most of it is way out of my price range but wow, what
beautiful stuff!! How amazing is that wicker bag??
A girl can dream, right??
And dreaming is what I'm doing!!

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

Wish List Wednesday

I have to confess, I was very bad in April...I shopped,
 shopped, shopped and shopped. 
Before I even knew it I had three new pairs of shoes,
 two handbags, a wallet, a change purse, 
a bunch of makeup and well, you get the point. 
As a result, I put myself on a ban, a SHOPPING BAN!! 
It's been 23 days. Twenty three LONG days.

Hanna Dress

Cuff Trousers 

Crop Pants

Gingham Sandals

Woven Heels

Skinny Jeans

Pink Nike

Oh boy, I cannot wait for my shopping ban to be over!!
Haha!! It's been harder, much harder than I thought.
Maybe, my calling in life is to be a personal
shopper?? At least, my wallet is happy.

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

Five for Friday

Well hello there.
First, I need to apologize for my sporadic blogging. 
I have been assigned a new project at work that 
has pretty much taken over my life.  Literally, all my
time (and then some) has been spent on it and
 it looks like it is going to be that way for the 
time being.  So please bare with me.

I thought it would be fun to do a Five for Friday since
I haven't done one in like forever.

Here is what I'm loving


The world-premiere musical based on Baz Luhrmann’s 
Academy Award®-winning film will be here in Boston
 (this summer) for six weeks. I have never seen the movie, 
so I don't really know much about the story but I'm super excited 
for it. Why?? Cause Aaron Tveit is in it
and well, I may have a small crush on him.
Ok, ok it's a big one.  Cannot wait to see this!!

And yes, I went to Moulin Rouge when
I was in Paris, just to take this picture.

Come What May- Aaron Tveit

This is the official music video of Come What May 
from Moulin Rouge! The Musical. I have been listening to 
this NON-stop!!  I cannot wait to hear the rest of the music.

Gucci GG Marmont Wallet

I picked up this little wallet back in April and LOVE it.
I didn't think I would like having such a small wallet but  
it's been great.  And really, how pretty is it??

Dr. Brandt No More Baggage 

My dark circles have been HORRIBLE. Concealer wasn't
 working, color correcting wasn't working, NOTHING.  
However, I saw on a Insta Story to put this on AFTER 
your concealer. Talk about a game changer!! 
 I put a little (just a little)on after my concealer and 
BAM, no more dark circles!! Seriously, this stuff is AWESOME.
And you can reapply as needed. It has changed my life and I'm not joking. 
I will say that it is drying, so I do keep a small jar of eye 
cream in my makeup bag at all times to add some hydration 
throughout the day should I need it. 

No More Baggage

With this new work project, things have
been quite challenging and if I'm being honest,
prettying fffing stressful. I have found this quote
to be most helpful and remind myself, that  
tomorrow is another day.

That wraps up my Five for Friday. I'm headed
to Cape Cod this weekend for some relaxation.
Although, the weather is looking pretty terrible
which seems to be my luck lately.

Have a Wonderful Weekend.

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

Crown Princess Mary

You may have heard that there is a Royal Wedding this 
weekend, so I thought it would fun to share the
 pictures I have of my up close encounter 
with some Royals.

 I had gotten inside information that
the Crown Prince and Crown Princess of Denmark
would be making an appearance at the Massachusetts
State House.  Seeing as Crown Princess Mary
is my favorite, I knew I had to try to get in and see her.
Even if it was to just get a glimpse.

Crown Princess Mary smiled at me but I didn't 
get a picture of that. I wanted to actually
watch her walk by with my own eyes
not through my phone camera.

My super awesome twin, had arranged for me to
be able to watch them as they came into the 
State House for their visit. I wanted to be up
close and personal and I WAS!!
I should note that their security team is
 all very good looking Danish men!! 

It all happened so fast but I was thrilled
to see them walk by me. Literally, I was
freaking out on the inside. My only
regret is that my camera was on the 
live option so it made the pictures
come out grainy looking.
 But, the memories will stay with 
me forever.  

I don't normally get all fan girly
but this was one time I was
and it was AWESOME. 

Is anyone else excited for the Royal
Wedding this weekend???
Let me know, I love hearing 
from you!!

Best, Marie
