Luxurious Care Package Giveaway!
In celebration of taking the step of moving my blog to its very own home The Simply Luxurious Life, I would like to thank you, my readers. Thank you for coming back, for accompanying me on my move. It is a daily treat to be able to share my ideas of this simply luxurious life I strive to live every day, and the fact that you are with me is an amazing . . . well, I’ll stop getting all mushy and simply say thank you.
As my way of saying thank you, I have put together a care package that is assured to bring calm, a bit of a respite during your busy life and hopefully some inspiration. Here is what the package will include:
. . . the jazzy sounds and sultry voice of up and coming crooner Spencer Day. You may have heard his billboard chart climbing song Till You Come to Me that, while starting out on smooth jazz stations (where I found him), has crossed over into into other genres as well. His sound is resonate of his album’s title, Vagabond, truly a mixture of a wide variety of music – blues, jazz, soul and cabaret, “. . . a sound that is traditional and familiar, yet fresh and innovative at the same time, creating a blend too subtle to parse into neatly defined categories . . .” I think you’ll easily be able to relax while filling the room with his easy sound. (Click on the song link to hear his music.)
. . . tea. While during the day, I’m sipping on TAZO’s Zen green tea, in the evenings while I’m typing away or putting the evening to bed, I brew beecrowbee’s Lavender Scented Black Tea. The soothing combination of the lavender blossoms give off an amazing scent and for me, it is the perfect way to wind down after a busy day. I personally have been buying products from beecrowbee for the past couple of years and am always impressed by the quality and attention to detail, as well as the genuine customer service that is given when you walk in the door. Beecrowbee was founded and created by Will Roundy in 2004 and sells a full line of carefully handmade bath & body products. Click here to read about my experience this past winter while perusing his shop. The store itself is located in Joseph, Oregon, but all of his products can be found at its website (soaps, candles, bath products, towels, lotions and tea products).
The winner, can choose from the selection of teas available by clicking here. Be sure to mention which tea you would like, or I’ll just assume you’d like to try my favorite. =)
. . . and while you’re sipping and relaxing, why not be reading something filled with a bit of inspiration and even something that might add a bit of simplicity to your life?
Last Wednesday, I started a series focused entirely on steps to simplify your life. Last week’s first five tips were inspired with the help of Elaine St. James’ book Simplify Your Life. Inside you will find 100 ways to bring more simplicity into your whirlwind world – some are extreme and others are very easy to master. And A quick read that will leave you wanting to apply at least one suggestion to your life.
And for those times when you just want to gaze at something beautiful and dream, I’m including Josephine Ryan’s recently released (September 2009) Essentially French: Homes with Classic French Style. A fan of French decor, I am always inspired by the impressive antique juxtaposed next to a worn country table and beloved fireplace. Essentially French takes you inside homes located around the world that incorporate the French aesthetic.
