MUSIC TO SCROLL BY: Luscious soundtracks playlist via our YouTube channel

MUSIC TO SCROLL BY: Check out some of the beautiful music I’ve added to our “Luscious soundtracks” playlist on YouTube.

I’m slowly loading a few of the gorgeous tracks we play at Chez Luscious, usually located by the clever Mr Luscious, who keeps our happy home full of music on weekends. You can follow all our playlists here.

The music from “Yves Saint Laurent” by Ibrahim Maalouf is my current top pick. Very moving.

PERSONAL UPDATE: Channelling my inner Edith Wharton…

 

Luscious living with mylusciouslife

 

Hi Luscious Lifers,

A quick note to say that I’m trying to make some more headway with the novel at the moment, so there probably won’t be any new posts today.

Please do remember to scroll through the blog and the shop – perhaps pick a random page number at the bottom of the main blog page or one of the “you might also like” links and see where you end up?

And there’s all the content on FacebookPinterestInstagramYouTubeGoogle+ and Twitter too, of course.

Thanks for your support!

Natasha xx

PS. Read more about one of my literary inspirations: Edith Wharton.

RIP ROBIN WILLIAMS: O Captain, My Captain…

 

 

UPDATE: Sorry for anyone who popped into visit and the video stopped working – I’ve found a new version.

The best scene ever, from Dead Poet’s Society.

Prepared to cry again when you watch it. Sorry about the poor quality and the sudden ending, but do consider re-watching the whole film again.

I’m so very sorry about the passing of the great Robin Williams. My condolences to his family and friends.
