Very much like a child anticipating the arrival of Santa, for the past few months I have been gradually prepping my wardrobe, brushing up on my French and scouring everywhere for ideas of what to do during my trip abroad to London and Paris as a way to pacify myself until my plane departs. The time has finally arrived to pack my bags and venture to London for a week of Olympic adventure, splashing in London rain with my Wellies and enjoying the leisure of a vacation schedule.
I want to thank so many of you who have emailed me with ideas for places to visit, enjoy and indulge in. From pubs to pop into, vintage shops to peruse in, and decadent sweet boutiques to satisfy my sugar tooth, I can’t thank you all enough. Your emails were so very kind and a wonderful surprise. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Needless to say, I am a bit giddy - a combination of slight nerves, but more excitement and child-like enthusiasm.
Rest assured, you can expect the regular scheduling of posts to continue here on the blog. I will be authoring Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday’s post as usually, so do be sure to stop by as I will be sharing photos as they become available from the trip. For Wednesday’s Why Not . . .? posts, I have a couple of fantastic and impressive bloggers lined up.
For my newsletter subscribers: Today you will receive the regularly weekly newsletter, but while I am traveling, the newsletter will also go on vacation (August 10 & 17th) and resume on Friday, August 24th.
But back to this past week on the blog. If you’ve been traveling, busy at work or enjoying the outdoors, here is a look back on the posts found on The Simply Luxurious Life:
~The most popular post of the week . . . Why Not . . . Make Someone Feel Special?
~Modeling Everlane’s Ryan Tee . . . a fantastic collaboration with JENESEQUA
~Mid-Week Motivation: 10 Instant Mood Lifters
~This & That: No. 18 . . . a top resource book for bloggers, an article to inspire and blogs to help live your best life
I do hope you have a splendid weekend and do stay cool if your part of the world is in or near the three digits. Until Monday, bonjour!
~P.S. You will notice at the end of today (Friday) that the header on the blog will change to my travel header. However, don’t worry, the girl walking the dog will return when I return from my vacation.~
