Cups of Tea 10/24-10/30
Waking up in freshly cleaned Egyptian cotton sheets, hearing the rain pitter patter on the window and looking forward to just easing into the day – a lovely way to begin a Sunday.
The weekend has been an opportunity to whittle down my “to-do” list and feel all the more satisfied upon taking a break every now and again. I would like to take a moment to welcome the new followers on Twitter of @simplyluxurious, and I hope you enjoy the daily inspiration. I am continually amazed by the many uplifting and fantastic new people I have the opportunity to converse with through a device that didn’t even exist five years ago. Change really can be an impressive and grand thing in the smallest of ways.
Today’s Cups of Tea includes a tasty dessert to keep in mind for your next dinner party, luxurious bathrooms to lay your eyes upon, tips for maintaining a more balanced life and even more beautiful images and inspiration. I hope you’ll enjoy this morning’s post as I grab myself a cup of hot tea (or coffee if you prefer), cozy up and get lost in some beauty this morning. Have a lovely Sunday, and thank you for taking the time to spend some time at The Simply Luxurious Life.
Last week, Erin of Apartment 34 shared a recipe for a Cherry, Almond Chocolate Cake, and I couldn’t resist sharing it with you. The images alone are so creatively done. The individual portions would be perfect for a holiday party or a catered event. Thank you Erin for sharing.
Whenever one sets out to create the life they imagined, schedules can become overwhelming busy, energy can run low and sleep is sometimes hard to find. Lately, my schedule has been progressively getting busier, yet more fulfilling and enjoyable than I can remember in quite some time, so when I read the title of Anastasiya’s post, author of Balance In Me, I immediately clicked to read it. What you will find are four tips on how to create a healthier balance with your personal and professional life. Have a look.
With the help of Caitlin of Sacramento Street this week, I discovered a new blog (new to me, but quite established and well followed) – RDuJour. Between the fashion, beauty and decor, I immediately included them on my Lovely Blogs list and had to share with you their post of chic and luxurious bathrooms. Have a look at a grand collection of images by clicking on the header above or the image below.
Cara of the ever delightful blog Lilac and Grey shared a post with her readers this week that by it’s title alone drew me in, but upon viewing the images, made me all the more anxious to get on a plane and head east to New York.
La Dolce Vita shared a thought that I took to heart earlier this week. One’s heart, mind and courage determine so much in each person’s life if only the step up to the plate is made. Take a look below and allow yourself to be inspired.
