MFA Boston, Art in Bloom

Flowers are like friends; They bring color to your world.”
 – Unknown

The last weekend in April was Art in Bloom 
at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. 

Today, I'm sharing some of the 
pictures from it. 

These picture do not do these floral arrangements
justice. They were absolutely gorgeous in person.
I wish I was able to get more pictures but it was
just way too crowded that day.  You could
barely walk around without bumping into 
someone. It was just nuts but I am grateful
for the pictures I did get. 

“Where flowers bloom so does hope.” 
– Lady Bird Johnson

My favorite flowers are roses, pink roses to be exact.
What is your favorite flower??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!

Taylor and Tulips

Happy Monday!! 

Can you believe it is, the end of April??
Although, I didn't think it was ever going to end. The weather
has just been crappy. So over all the cloudy, cold, and rainy days.

Here is what caught my eye last week.

I will be honest, I'm not the biggest Taylor Swift fan. However,
I'm loving her new song!! Love it!! And the video, I love 
all the pastels!! Also, this line..."And you can't spell
"awesome" without me"...Oh, it's so fab!!
Give it a listen. 

The Tulips have bloomed at the Boston Public Gardens.
Thankfully, we had a nice sunny day so I was able to 
walk over and take a few pictures.
I absolutely love the Tulips but you gotta go 
quick, they are usually only up for two weeks.
Last year, I missed them, so I was thrilled to 
see them this year.

Yes, of course Louie had to get in the pictures.
She loves getting her picture taken. 

Are you a fan of Taylor and/or Tulips??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!
Best, Marie

Currently...Spring Edition

Eating // Trader Joe's Cheese Bites.
I'm so addicted to these. I literally
buy bags and bags of them. 

Drinking // Moroccan Mint Tea.
Also from Trader Joe's.
I gave up soda for Lent so I have
been drinking a ton of tea. I make
it myself and just love it. 
But I do miss my Diet Ginger Ale.

Listening // Mama Mia Here We Go Again,
the soundtrack. I recently watched the movie
and absolutely loved it. It's so cute and well,
I love love the music. I'm a huge ABBA fan.

Wanting // A pair of Golden Goose Sneakers. I see 
everyone wearing them and now I want a pair. I'm deciding 
between this one and this one. In a perfect world, I wouldn't
 mind both. But in reality, I only need one. 
Which one do you like??

Reading // What Alice Forget by Liane Moriarty.
Just started it and so far it's pretty good.
Although, I did just finish Three Wishes
by her and hated the ending. It just
sort of ended and I was like what? That's the end.
Not of fan when the story just ends. I felt
like I missed something. 

Watching // Medici: Masters of Florence.
I just finished watching the second season
on Netflix. It's SOO good!! So good!!
If you are a history buff like me, you
will really enjoy this show. 

Loving //  Everything from MZ Wallace.
I love love their bags. I have my eye on 
this one and this one.

Wearing // I have been wearing this tinted
moisturizer and really really like it. Not sure if it will
 replace my beloved CC Cream.  I also picked 
up these pants at Target and LOVE THEM.
They are prefect for spring.

Smelling // My Dry Shampoo. Ha!! It
 smells so good!! I accidentally sprayed
too much and that is all I can spell.
Well, at least I smell good. 

Daydreaming //  Moulin Rouge! The Musical.
It's headed to Broadway this summer and I 
CANNOT wait to see it! Yes, I have seen it
but I loved it so much and now it's going to 
be on Broadway so I have to go see it. 
Love love love the music from it. 

Come What May- Aaron Tveit

News// Have you read this 
article about a Burglar in a bathroom
at a home in Oregon?? Yes, it is 
true and it's hilarious!! Do yourself a favor
and read it. It's such a good laugh.

That wraps up my currently.
What's up with you?

Let me know, I love hearing from you!!

Coco Chanel Suite

Step inside Coco Chanel's suite at the Ritz's Paris.
Designed by the late Karl Lagerfield, it's absolutely

  I mean, WOW!! 

Ritz Paris

Ritz Paris

Ritz Paris

Ritz Paris

Absolutely STUNNING!!

 However, the price to stay for one night starts at 18000 Euro which is
absolutely insane. Do you think anyone actually pays that? Yes,
probably they do. I cannot even comprehend that. Although, those
who can afford it, probably get it for free or for a discount. I mean,
who would pay  that for night at a hotel??

I'm just a beer budget gal with champagne taste.
haha...I love that saying.

What's your dream hotel??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!

Clean Makeup

Without even realizing it, I have switched almost all my
 skincare to clean skincare. I had been hearing it so much and
 all my friends had started to make the switch. Along the way, I did too.
  It wasn't intentional, it just sort of happened. 

 Today, I'm sharing my new skincare favorites which 
are all clean. 

After my bad eye infection, my eye doctor recommended that
I use baby shampoo as an eye makeup remover. It is by FAR
the best eye makeup remover, I have ever used. It takes
off all my eye makeup including my waterproof eye liner.
It doesn't sting my eyes, it doesn't leave any residue, nothing.
Literally, it's like water but better. I know you are thinking, 
come on, but it's true. Try it. It is sulfate free, 
dye free, paraben free and phthalate free.

Face Wash
Oh I love me some Tata Harper. Her products
are all clean and I really like them. However, they 
are a bit pricey. I really like this face wash. I still
use this one  from time to time as I have a big
tub of it and don't want to waste it. 

I got a sample of this in my Play box and just love it.
It's one the few brightening products that actually
brighten. I buy the travel size at Sephora as this
is also pricey. 

Tatcha Violet-C Radiance Mask

Face Lotion
I also got a sample of this in my play box. 
I use this more at night as it's pretty heavy.
I wake up with nice soft skin. 

Tatcha Dewy Skin

This primer, is like wow. It literally makes
your skin look flawless. Sometimes, I just wear this with 
some concealer and I'm good to go.  I also buy this
in the travel size. I also think that buying the travel size,
means that the product doesn't get stale by the time you
get to the bottom of it. Kwim?

Tatcha Silk Canvas

Honestly, I still use "unclean" makeup. But.I am more careful
 with what I buy.  Especially, after my eye infection, I had to throw
 most of my makeup away. And we all know, it is not cheap to
 replace it.  It killed me to throw out my brand new 

Also, I just cannot quit my La Mer, wish I could but I love 
love love it.  It works so well on my skin. Trust me, I wish 
my skin didn't like it so much because it is such
 a pricey product. 

I'm not sure if I will switch all my makeup to clean. But, I'm 
trying to find a good balance and be more mindful
of what I use and what I'm putting on my face. 

Life is all about balance, right??

Have you made the switch to clean??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!

Best, Maire
