The Simply Luxurious Life®: Short and Sweet  

September 11, 2010

Short and Sweet

Even though the week was short, there were times I felt as though 48 hours was being packed into a single day, and so with the arrival of the weekend it is imperative that we treat ourselves well whether it be with a nibble of fresh fruit to begin our day, a trip to our favorite salon for a pedi and mani, time to just forget to look at a clock or a stop at our favorite boutique. Whatever your idea of a pleasant distraction may be, allow yourself to luxuriate in it at some point this weekend and simply let any guilt evaporate into thin air.

In New York this week, Fashion Week began to roll out their Spring 2011 Ready-to-Wear collections and even though only two days have passed, I’ve already discovered two collections that displayed trends I will want to look for in the spring, Christian Siriano and Jason Wu.

Also this week, I’ve added a daily feature for my Twitter followers. Along with a thought to ponder and a thought to sleep on, I’m also sharing a daily simple luxury, something that while not costing an extreme amount of money, can bring a feeling of pampering and luxury to the routine of any given day.  If you’d like to follow and aren’t already, simply click here.

Saturdays are a day to look forward to especially for me, as it is when I find the time to lose myself in the many wonderful blogs that continue to inspire and open my eyes, as well as catch up on the magazines that have made their way into my mailbox during the past few days. If your week was a bit more hectic than you expected, or you weren’t able to stop by as much as you would have liked, here is a look at the past week on The Simply Luxurious Life:

I feel like I need 3 days to recover from some week days. I spend one day of the weekend sleeping, the other cleaning the house/organizing and paying bills/ironing and than I am missing one to do add some fabulousness to my weekend.
Ahh... :)

Thats what I have my blog for :)

Have a great weekend!
