The Simply Luxurious Life®: Short and Sweet  

May 22, 2010

Short and Sweet

The latte above is calling my name this morning.  All I want to do is ease into my weekend, catch up on reading my favorite blogs and eventually get a great workout in, so that I can imagine looking like Miranda Kerr above.

How has your week been?  Was it full of busy moments of bustle or a steady balance that seemed to keep the week in order?  I’d love to hear.  In hindsight, this week was full of progress, more growth than I realized at work, and for that I am thankful. However, I’m already looking ahead and planning more goals to pursue.  Isn’t that always the way?  Don’t worry though, this weekend is going to be one to savor and be grateful for.  After all, I’m resting up like most of us, for Memorial Day  next weekend.  I absolutely can’t wait.  In case your week has been a little too rushed, here’s what’s been going on at The Simply Luxurious Life this past week:

Fashion Preview: Sex and the City 2 movie 

Mondays Thoughts: Refocus on Your Goal

Before It Hits the Newsstand: 

         Cate Blanchett–W Magazine June 2010

Tuesday’s Rooms for Inspiration:  Beckoning Sofas

Guest Post: How to Convey Confidence with Fashion

63rd Cannes Film Festival:  Week 1 Fashion Favorites

Wednesday’s Why Not?: Tips for Traveling with Ease

Garden Delights: A Lush and Tranquil Retreat

Thursday Treasures: Simple and Lovely

Simply Luxurious Style:  The First Lady Dazzles

Foodie Friday: Quick and Delicious Dinner in Fifteen

Friday’s Cravings:  A Dose of Love

Have a wonderful Saturday, and be sure to stop by tomorrow for my weekly Cups of Tea! A few new fabulous blogs will be featured, plus my dependable go-tos.

That latte picture looks so exquiaite and inviting even for someone who is does not have a fondness for coffee with the exception of the Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee;-)
I shall be reading my favourite blogs, too, hence my being here...;-)
The sun is shining so I shall pop out on the balcony for a spot of sunshine with a good book. Enjoy, my lovely! Happy Saturday!

The latte picture is amazing - great art! You knew that there is a championship for this?

I just finished my cappuccino (it was tasty but definitely not as good looking as the latte in the picture), soon I have to prepare the lunch. For today I plan almost the same things like you both: reading my favorite blogs, write some own blog posts, spend time with my dog and make plans for the future. At night I plan to gather around some friends to play some silly table games! ^^ Sounds like an ideal Saturday for me!

Just finishing up my latte -- not as artistic as yours, but so delicious. I am have been making dulce du leche (ridiculously easy recipe coming soon on SM), I spooned some into my milk before steaming it -- unbelievable!!

I stocked up on plants at the garden store yesterday so I can continue planting all of my beds. New puppy delighfully slows the process! I think I'll do a quick garden post featuring MS. Arabella!

Also, trying to get some photos of our blue jays who are working on their nest, for the third year. Such cranky birds, and absolute bullies, but they are so spectacular to look at, I feel honored they nest here.

First -- must catch up on blogs!!
