The Simply Luxurious Life®: The Weekend . . .  

August 5, 2011

The Weekend . . .

This weekend finds me trying to look my best for my first photo shoot in years with a photographer I have been very anxiously excited to meet after which I will be heading home to kiss my boys (my two dogs) and be grateful to be home after a long week away. I see myself taking in a new episode of Barefoot Contessa calling my name Saturday morning as I settle in to catch up on reading all of my mail and maybe a nap.

Despite being away from home, this week has lent itself to some amazing moments and I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to be pampered and patiently taken care of at my hotel as I jaunted here and there for work and of course some play.

Hopefully this first weekend of August finds you well and savoring some time to breathe, smile with abandon and just do as you please.

Here is a look back on the past week on The Simply Luxurious Life:

*What is Worth the Risk?

*Some fabulous French cuisine in Portland - Brasserie Montmartre – Restaurant Review

*A healthy, yet still just as tasty version of one of my favorite comfort food recipes – Spaghetti alla Carbonara

*Why Not . . . Get Organized? Part Trois

*Guest post by Accidental Chic blogger Tiffani Rogers – Simple Touches to Your Closet

*A Wardrobe Essential – Style Inspiration

*Take a look at this Friday’s weekly newsletter – issue #60

And the winner of this past week’s giveaway from UPrinting is Sara.  Congratulations! Please email me ( so I can gather all necessary information. Until Monday, bonjour and have a wonderful weekend.
