BY INVITATION ….. LIFE'S LUXURIES ……….




Our By Invitation subject for April  { APRIL ….. ARGHHHHHH !!!! } is Life's Luxuries.

But, what does luxury mean to you ?



….. would it be a castle ? …..



….. or a cottage ? …..



….. caviar ? …..



….. or cake ? …..



….. hot tub ? …..



….. or herbaceous border ? …..



….. would luxury for you be a Patak Philippe watch ? …..



….. or a week in Provence ? …..



….. a Lambourghini ? …..



….. or laughter ? …..



….. shoes ? …..



….. or sunsets ? …..



….. fashion ? …..



….. or friendship ? …..


A couple of years ago,  the Daily Mail conducted a survey on modern life's little luxuries. Amongst other similar things, top of the list was an after work pint or glass of wine, a weekly take-away and tucking into a box of chocolates ! Researchers found that everyday activities like having a soak in the bath and watching a box set as luxuries.
The survey showed that buying flowers for one's self was also a luxury.
Affordable items like magazines, thick toilet rolls { !! } and new lipsticks and nail varnish were classed as luxuries, showing that it didn't have to be something lavish and expensive and that the things that make you smile can be fairly modest.

What luxury is top of your list ?

For luxury in abundance, Marsha has all of the links.

Wishing you all a luxurious week, whatever it may be.
