 my wallet. 

Here is what has caught my eye.

itching to do some spring cleaning in my house. I actually

Link Love

Happy Monday! Hope you had
a fabulous weekend. 

Today, I'm sharing some articles that I came across while
perusing the inter-webs. They were too good not to share. I love
 posts that have links to articles,
as I may not have come across them if it wasn't
 for a blog post. 

Healthy Habits to Adopt in 2019

Do You Keep a Failure Resume

I have to say I really would be lost without
the blogging world as I have learned so much
and well, it's just awesome.
So tell me, have you come across
any good articles lately. 

Let me know, I love hearing from you!!

TBB Asks...The Shop til You Drop Edition

One of my goals this year was to get better about blogging.
 At least, post once or twice a week.  As you can see, I have somewhat
failed at that.  Truth be told, I'm still working a project at work, that
was suppose to wrap up in October (2018). It is still on-going and has
somewhat consumed my life. Basically, I'm working non-stop with
no days off. Oh and then I got sick but still had to work. In any
event, I'm slowly, very slowly, getting back into a normal routine. 

The twins are back today with the The Blended Blogs for 
a little  Q&A: The Shop 'til You Drop

Oh this was probably one of our favorite q and a's.
The twins do love to shop!! In fact, maybe a bit 
too much. haha. Truth be told, I work two jobs
so sometimes I do over indulge as, "I think oh I deserve it,
I get a discount", blah blah blah. However, the older I get
the less "stuff" I want. Except for handbags. They are
my weakness.  But as my Grandmother says, "You can't 
take it with you!" haha. Trying NOT to shop is hard
but we are getting better. We are a work in progress!!

Now, tell us, are you a shopaholic??
Let us know, we love hearing form you!!
Best, Marie & Jenn

Power of Perfume

Scents are a powerful thing. When you smell 
something familiar, you can instantly put a memory to it,
even if it was long ago.  Even as a child, I was aware of the power
of scents. As a child, my Mother only wore Chanel No. 5
 perfume. Even today, whenever
I smell it, I think of her. 

I'm pretty picky about perfumes and don't like anything 
that is too strong or too fruity. I also don't believe 
in over doing it. Nothing worse, than someone wearing
way to much perfume. Perfume should linger,
not overwhelm your senses.

These are my favorite perfumes,
I like to call them my signature scents.


Fiori di Capri


Twilly d'Hermes

I'm currently wearing Twilly. While I cannot
smell it on myself, people are always telling me 
I smell good which I appreciate. I want to smell
good not bad. Lol. 

Funny enough Jenn hates the smell
of it and thinks I spell like a French (whore) bad word. Which
makes me wonder, how does she know how a french (whore) 
bad word smells like??

What are your favorite perfumes??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!
Best, Marie

Jenn's Makeup Faves

Hello, Jenn here today. 
Taking over for Marie who is a bit under the 
weather. About a year ago, Marie and I were in Sephora visiting 
her friend who is a makeup artist there. I was telling her that I have 
always used MAC cosmetics, but lately I felt like the product has gone
 down in quality. The makeup just wasn’t lasting a long as it used to, 
I felt like it wasn’t giving me a lot of coverage and so on and so on. 

So, she suggested I try Hourglass Veil foundation. As soon as she put 
it on my face, I was instantly in love with it. One it felt like she 
hadn’t put anything on me at all. And two my goodness my
 skin never looked as good as it does with this foundation. 
Total game changer for me. I absolutely love it! It’s amazing 
coverage and it’s so weightless! I cannot say enough good things 
about it! And normally I wouldn’t even make a whole blog post about it, 
but I know people like suggestions for different things and
 man oh man this foundation is just incredible! So 
if you’re in the market for a new foundation or just want
 to try something new. I highly suggest it! 

Ambient Lightening Palette

The other products that I use by Hourglass are the Veil Mineral Primer 
and the Ambient Lighting Palette. The primer is really good,
 but I tried the Tom Ford Illuminating Primer and I am obsessed with it. 
So I use that now. The ambient lighting palette is pretty special 
and I like the glow it gives my skin.

 Other products I use on the daily are Kat VonD Lock it concealer crème,
All are amazing! 

And as you can see, I no longer use MAC cosmetics. I literally 
used them for  years and years, but the last couple of years I have 
noticed that it’s just not the same quality that it once was. Maybe one day
 I will go back, but for right now I’m very happy with the products
 I have been using and my face hasn’t looked better!  

What are your makeup faves??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!
Best, Jenn

Life Lately

 Can you believe it is almost the end of January??
Where did the month go?? Normally, January is a pretty quiet month
but not this year. It's been crazy busy but in a good way.

Thought it would be fun to do a  Life Lately-Twin Edition.

We started the New Year off in NYC. Other than the monsoon
 on New Year's Eve, we had a super fun time. Saw a fantastic show,
indulged in some retail therapy and stuffed our faces. 

 Sugar Cookie Cookie Dough.

Said goodbye to Henri Bendel.
Going to miss that beautiful store.

uggs in your bag!!
