OUR LITTLE LUSCIOUS WORLD: Taking some time out to work on my novel

 

LUSCIOUS BREAK: Taking time out to work on my novel

 

Luscious ones, I’m having a little break to work on my novel.

I’ve been struggling with writer’s block and only getting little bits and pieces done – it’s time to get back into the swing of things!

But be sure to follow on Instagram and Twitter for snippets from Chez Luscious in the meantime.

And don’t forget the Pinterest boards, YouTube, Google+, the Facebook photo galleries, and everything on the Luscious website including the Luscious blog and Luscious shop, of course.

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.
