The Simply Luxurious Life®: The Weekend . . .  

June 29, 2012

The Weekend . . .

Summer is in full swing . . . time for lazy, leisurely late evenings while the sun slowly tucks itself in, time to see brand new places with eyes that are full of curiosity and as always, time to appreciate all that is going well.

The wonder and beauty in life is that we never know where the next day will take us, but the gift we have is knowing how we will greet the day that is ours in this moment. For me, summer reminds me of all that is possible – how beautiful everything can be after winters that are difficult and springs that require laborious work and excruciating effort. However, the beautiful summers of our lives don’t come unless we do the work, put in our time and know where we’d like to end up. So I have to ask the question of you (and myself), what are you doing today to make your summer as magnificent as possible?

This week on the blog there was a homage to one of the women that has inspired me for quite some time, a thought provoking article I found about women and whether or not they can have it all and frugal ideas to help build a quality, uniquely-your-own wardrobe. Have a look:

~Nora Ephron – Thank You

~The Value of Small Steps . . . the most popular post of the week

~Why Not . . . Shop Consignment?

~An Article to Read . . . From The Atlantic

~The Newsletter’s 2nd Anniversary

~Style Inspiration: Blazers & Pastels

~English Country Decor – Houzz June Ideabook

~Link a la Mode: June 21st

~This & That: No. 13 . . . summer reading, a summer sale and websites for the now and the then

And this week’s newsletter – issue #107 – click here to begin.

May the weekend be full of moments of pleasure, simple and exactly what you need. Until Monday, bonjour.
