The Weekend . . .

Jun 14, 2013

Both of the above activities look like something I wouldn’t mind indulging in this weekend. With 90 degree temps set to arrive on Sunday, finding a tree, grabbing a book and something to nibble on sounds ideal. This weekend however calls for a bit of perusing yard sales, stopping by the farmers’ market and working around the yard.

This past week on the blog has been fun as I’ve done some cooking, revealed one more street style post with ideas for summer and had some wonderful comments on Monday’s Happiness post. Also, a new addition to The Simply Luxurious Life has begun this week on Facebook. Weekly questions will be posted about recent topics shared on the blog. Do stop by and share your thoughts, ideas, insights or questions (click here to view the two questions that were presented this week).

The Weekend . . .

Dec 14, 2012

A simple holiday preparation weekend is in store as I pile my dogs in the car to go pick out our Christmas tree. Along the way a luscious hot chocolate will be consumed from my favorite local French patisserie as well classic holiday tunes to sing along to as we drive (okay, I’ll be singing and the dogs will be sleeping, but still . . .).

Needless to say, I’m ready to dive into the weekend and indulge in the festive spirit of the season. How about you? How are the holidays going? I hope they are full of excitement and leisure, as well as time to count all that is going well, as well as include a bit of great anticipation for the new year.

If you haven’t already done so, be sure to enter this week’s giveaway. Paris Versus New York: A Tally of Two Cities is full of fantastic illustrated comparisons of two of my favorite cities and even more exciting is that the winner will receive the deluxe edition which includes 35 new illustrations.

I don’t know about you, but I’m looking forward to catching up on my reading this weekend. And just in case you haven’t had time to stop by this week, below is a look at the past week of posts on the blog:

The Weekend . . .

Sep 14, 2012

One of my favorite moments while in Manhattan this past week was finding a few moments of free time to wander through Central Park. As I mentioned in this post, I found Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis’ Reservoir and decided to take a seat, nibble on a French pastry and take a few deep breaths as I pinched myself for being able to enjoy this wonderful experience of traveling to New York during fashion week. Next to where I sat was the Bow Bridge (pictured above), and I think it was the ability to escape for a quiet respite while in one of the world’s most driven, energetic cities in the world that made this moment all the more lovely.

During the past six weeks I realize I have been very, very fortunate to travel to the three places in the world I for so long had only dreamed about, and as I go into this last weekend before the school year begins, I want to continue to bring to you the reader inspiration to live and cultivate your most amazing simply luxurious life. Because one of the most rewarding lessons I have derived from all of this is that life has wonderful, breath-taking-away moments it wants to share with us if only we dare to dream that the impossible is indeed possible. Now, go about the business of putting yourself out there and reveling in the beauty that life has to offer.

Thank you so much for choosing to travel with me via the blog or contacting me while I was in New York (via Twitter, Email, Facebook, etc). Your tips, questions and excitement added to the all-around making of an experience I will never forget.

And as you can imagine, while this past seven days was the opening week of Fashion Week beginning in New York City, the blog has been busy. Below is a list of the regular weekly posts, posts journaling my three days in the Big Apple and twelve NYFW Spring 2013 collections that I wanted to share with you. Have a look . . .
