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.

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

Best Iced Latte, we have ever had!!

The following weekend, we celebrated our 
Grandmother's 95th birthday!!

The following week, we headed back to NYC
and it sNOwed.

Nothing like NYC in the snow!!! And always,
make sure you have the correct footwear in
January. I didn't and well, I learned my lesson.
Never travel in January without a pair of
uggs in your bag!!

Oh I saw this in NYC and 
couldn't stop laughing.

This past weekend, we had another party
for my Grandmother with our
extended family!!

Phew, are you tired cause I am!!
Sorry, didn't realize how long this
post would be. So thanks for reading!!

That's what the twins have been up to.

What have you been up to lately??
Let us know, we love hearing from you!!

Best, Marie & Jenn

Five Local Businesses

Linking up with The Blended Blog to share my favorite 
local businesses.

Mane & Mani
Mane & Mani

Jenn and I both go here for our blowouts and nails.
This place is the best!! We love all the girls who work here.
Not only do they do a great job with blowouts, they are
all so friendly and fun. Jenn and I love going
for blowouts and nails. The best part is, getting 
our nails done while they do our hair. In and out within an 
hour for both services which in my book is awesome.

Modern Millie
Modern Millie

This is a fun little dress/consignment shop in Salem, MA.
They have the best dresses in town. They are a little
retro but they also have more modern clothing, hence the name.
 If you are looking for a dress, and something different, this 
is the store to go to.

Roost & Company

This is a little card/gift store also in Salem, MA. Not only 
do they have great cards, they also have cute home furnishings
 and unique little gifts. 

 This store sell a little bit of everything. From handbags to
jewelry, you can find something for everyone here.
Whenever, I need a little gift, I go here. The only downside 
to this place is that they are closed on Sundays and Mondays.
I can't tell you how many times I go on a Monday 
afternoon. ha! 

Jaho Coffee & Tea

Jaho-Downtown Boston
This place is by far my favorite coffee
shop in Boston. They have a few locations in the city
but the Downtown one is my favorite. It's not 
just a coffee shop, it's also a wine bar and restaurant.
Their breakfast sandwiches are fantastic. Well, worth 
the price. 

That wraps up my fave local business. I do love
supporting small business. In fact, I find myself
shopping more and more at them. 

Do you have any favorite local businesses?
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!
Best, Marie

Wish List Wednesday

It's Wednesday, which means it's time for Wish List Wednesday!!
 I decided to do a dry January...dry in no shopping. 
I was really, really,really bad in December. My trip
to NYC for NYE's sent me over the 
edge. My wallet hates me. So for now,
just wishing...

Diamond Huggie Earring

Sequin Flutter Sleeve Top

Stripe Turtleneck

Twilly Perfume

Lace Top

Silk Scrunchies

Sweater Blazer

New Balance Platform Sneakers


Leopard Loafers

Navy Vest

Brightening Youth Glow Primer

Champagne Sweatshirt

Kick Flare Cropped Jeans

Nordic Wedge Booties

Oh man, so many nice things...
but I'm being strong. My last
shopping ban (in November), I did
pretty good until Cyber Monday then it
was like the flood gates opened.
The sales were just too good to
pass up. Add in a trip to NYC and
well, hello Shopping Detox.
Wish me luck! I need it!!
I'm an addict... a shopping addict.

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