The Simply Luxurious Life®: The Weekend . . .  

August 30, 2013

The Weekend . . .

Perhaps the ocean is calling, or maybe you are just aching for some quiet time at home. Whatever the weekend has in store, hopefully you get to enjoy a long three day weekend or simply time to forget about time for the next couple of days.

If you’re looking for a good movie to watch that doesn’t take up your entire afternoon or evening, I highly recommend Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine. I finally had the opportunity to take in a matinee last weekend while in Portland, and Cate Blanchett’s performance is stunning (and on a styling note, the stylist was only given $50,000 for the entire cast - needless to say, you would never know such a limited budget existed).

And for your leisurely reading as the weekend begins, here is a look back on the past week’s blog posts . . .

I will definately go to watch "Blue Jasmine" in an open air cinema. Last weekend of August the ideal night out.

Thanks for the tip.

Thanks for the weekend post. So refreshing. It makes me want to make this weekend extra nice as we go from summer in to early fall.
