The Simply Luxurious Life®: The Weekend . . .  

March 22, 2013

The Weekend . . .

Spring vacation is finally here! And while I’d love to take a day or two and just be, I feel quite fortunate to be able to be traveling to both New York City and Portland over this next week. Just as quickly as the week ends, I will be moving into my flat in Portland’ Pearl, and oh, how I cannot wait to spend more time in the rainy, rose city that I love. With a book reading by Cara Black, a bit of shopping, dog walking and time to just peruse my new walkable neighborhood, I feel like a young girl anxiously waiting for Santa to arrive.

And New York City. I can’t quite believe I get to return so quickly since my last visit to a city so full of inspiration, energy and opportunity. For a bit of business and pleasure, feel free to follow me on Twitter and Instagram as I will be sharing photos I capture along the way.

On this blog this week, there was inspiration for just about any area of living simply luxuriously that piques your interest – fashion, food, reading, decor and even a checklist for having your own yard sale. Have a look:

~Why Not . . . Have a Yard Sale? . . . a detailed checklist

~A book to read . . . Book Review – Lean In

~A Simple Decor Idea to Welcome Spring . . . the first part in a four part series

~Want & Have Outfit: No. 26 . . . simple idea from Ann Taylor’s Loft and Reiss’ spring sale

~This & That: No. 50 . . . the history of fashion, Jenna Lyons and an affordable trench

~Turn Your Wardrobe into a Wearable Magnum Opus

~Style Inspiration: Tres Chic

~My New Favorite Side Dish . . . simple and impressive

And this week’s newsletter – issue #141 – click here to read.

I do wish you a wonderful weekend. Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by the blog. Until Monday, bonjour.

Shannon, what is the reason for you moving to Portland? Won't it be difficult to shuffle between 2 places? Curious as to how you will make that all work!

Enjoy new york, it's my favourite city!
