A simply luxurious life is a life regularly sprinkled and enhanced with simple pleasures, a la petit plaisirs. These need not be expensive treats or luxuries, but inexpensive, thoughtful gestures that cultivate a quality way of living. Whether such an experience be found with a new book that captivates our attention, a scrumptious recipe that is satiating and scrumptious or a film that opens our eyes, simple pleasures are a mandatory requirement of simply luxurious living.
At the beginning of 2014, a new regular feature began on TSLL – the weekly Petit Plaisir. And while it initially was posted on the weekends, as a reminder of simple ways to bring pleasure into our everyday lives, it now appears at the end of each podcast of The Simple Sophisticate which airs Monday mornings.
A Petit Plaisir could be a recommended film, book, play or delectable recipe I am eager to share, but at the heart of each is their simplicity and approachability. Have a look below at a handful of favorites (click on the image or the link to be taken directly to the full post), and explore all of the Petit Plaisirs from 2014 here.
