The Simply Luxurious Life®: The Weekend . . .  

October 7, 2011

The Weekend . . .

While Linda Evangelista smells the flowers, I’ll be stopping to smell the rain this weekend and thoroughly enjoying every minute as I have been waiting for it to arrive.  After two long months without a drop, I am enamored as it glosses my lawn and sprinkles the streets. There is nothing so sweet as the scent of the first rain of fall.

With some time with my mother as she celebrates her 60th birthday, and an opportunity to just find some down time surrounded by my many unread magazines and newspapers, and maybe a bit of pampering as well, I am more than ready for this weekend to arrive.  How about you?

This week I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to share a bit more about myself as Linda from the blog Stuff I Like interviewed me for her Nosy Nine series.  Please do stop by her lovely blog and discover her stylish taste for fashion, but so much more. Also on the blog this past week:

*What Butterflies Have Taught Me

*Paris and Milan street style and more – Style Inspiration

*Chic spring collections from Paris Fashion Week – Elie Saab, Christian Dior (my favorite so far), Collette Dinnigan

*Why Not . . . Be More Productive? Part Trois

*My Little Paris – Book Review

*And to view this Friday’s weekly newsletter – issue #69 – click here.

I hope you have plans to enjoy simple pleasures whatever they might be this weekend – possibly curling up with a book, chatting with friends at brunch, sharing breakfast in bed with your partner or cheering your kids on while they run on the field. Get lost in the moment, savor and revel in it, and who knows what other magnificent moments await.  Until Monday, bonjour.
