The Simply Luxurious Life®: Cups of Tea 6/13 – 6/19  

June 20, 2010

Cups of Tea 6/13 – 6/19

Happy Father’s Day to all of the fathers out there.  My father is doing exactly what he loves on this day – on the golf course and afterwards coming home to time with family and a look at the final day of the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach. If you’re spending time with your father today, I wish you a great day together.

Hopefully your Sunday morning, no matter who you are spending it with, is looking very promising, and as a way to provide even more reason for it to shine, this week’s Cups of Tea includes the perfect brunch item, some sound advice, sage words on how to get more in tune with your creative side and fabulously seductive images courtesy of one of my favorite blogs.  Enjoy looking at all of them.

(Today, you’ll notice, I have changed my font.  Please let me know which one you prefer: New - georgia or Old – fang song. I do appreciate your input.)


1. A Lesson in Silence

After Gretchen Rubin of The Happiness Project watched the recently released Sex and the City 2 movie, she came away with a piece of advice that I think we all could heed by observing Charlotte (it’s not what you think, trust me).  Sometimes, as I can attest to repeatedly, we just want to be heard. 


2. Beautiful in Black & White

Linda of Simply Seductive has a very keen eye, as I’ve mentioned before, for beautiful images and this particular post is one more example.  All the images are, as the header suggests, in black and white, and they are a sight to see.  Click on the header above or the photo below to see the rest of the collection.

3. A Breakfast of Brioche

If you add just one more blog to your reading list, add Sunday Suppers.  Beautifully designed, fantastic content, delicious looking food, photos and recipes and all of it will have you tying on your apron before you even get up from the computer.  Thankfully A Life More Fabulous brought this lovely blog/website to my attention, and the first recipe I laid eyes on is the next recipe I will be putting together for brunch – Brioche French Toast.

Sunday Suppers are class-cooking-dining experiences that  pair friends and food. How fun would this be to attend?  Held in a waterfront loft in Brooklyn, all of the cooking is taught by local chefs.  All of the food is market fresh, local and organic, and the objective is to teach ways to create seasonal and fresh meals together. Love it!  Just another excuse to hop across the country. Anyone care to join me? 

4. 50 Ways to Discover Joy

There is no such thing as too much joy, so why not read up on how to bring even more of it into your life thanks to the help of, quickly becoming one of my favorite blogs, Live Bold and Bloom  authored by Barrie Davenport. (Barrie is a woman, in case you were wondering, I apologize for making that mistake the first time I including one of her posts – thank you for being so understanding Barrie.)


5. Where to Find Inspiration

Immediately I was drawn into this particular post simply because of the photo (which reminds me that I haven’t enjoyed a bath in much too long), but the message, as I began reading it, rang true for me as well.  Mary Jo of Trust Your Style  shares some thoughts as to what one of the greatest muses can be for anyone who aspires to create.  Have a look.
