With the arrival of the weekend, the Fourth of July celebrations officially have ended but seem to have enjoyably continue into an extended vacation for so many, including myself.
I have been enjoying far too many decadent morning hot chocolates from my favorite chocolatier while I am away in the country this week, and will be sure to stock up on milk chocolate peanut butter, espresso and lavender truffles to enjoy the rest of the month. Also, yard sales, antique stores and flea markets are beckoning my curious eyes, as I never know what will be discovered that will work perfectly in the home. So with a dash of work each day, a nap here and there and some wonderful get-togethers with friends to enjoy the Fourth of July, I feel fortunate to have had this opportunity for escape.
I hope you too have had some time this week to unwind, whether it is simply the time in the evening after a long day’s work to bask in the evening summer sun and sip a favorite glass of crisp lemonade or white wine, as the sun slowly sets in the west or get away and revel in holiday celebrations.
Even though it was a week of festivities for many, the blog has been busy with Paris Fall Couture week taking place, as well as the regular daily posts. Here’s a look at the past week on The Simply Luxurious Life:
~Stop Being Busy & Start Being Efficient . . . the most popular post of the week.

Similar to many of you, I will be tuning into the final few days of Wimbledon, and settling back into a regularly routine. However you choose to spend these precious summer days, may the first weekend of July be a wonderful time for you and those you love, and until Monday, bonjour.
