TRAVEL LUSCIOUSNESS: My friend, the ever-glam Katherine is off on a lovely work trip next week, including some time in Paris. I’m so jealous but also excited for her. Here are some travel-related picks which I’ve been reading…
LUSCIOUS NEWS: Quick picks relating to luscious houses and gardens…
Bits and pieces of news and gossip I’ve collected over the last few weeks which you may find interesting…(Some of it may be a little out of date now, but I’m including it in case you missed it)
*UPDATED* This was my entry for a competition offering 3 days in South Australia. Sadly, I did not win but you may still enjoy the itinerary I planned.
CELEBRATING SOUTH AUSTRALIA: Here is my plan for a luxurious 3-night, 4-day visit to Adelaide and the Barossa Valley…
HOLIDAY HOSTESS TIPS: So I’m the most organised I’ve ever been this year (applause please!) so I thought I’d jot down a few thoughts as they occur to me that have helped me along the way which you might also find useful…
If you’re having trouble getting into the Christmas spirit, watching this clip might help.
It’s a series of Christmas pranks between Emily Blunt and John Krasinski, and their friends and neighbours Jimmy Kimmel and Molly McNearney, going back about 3 years and getting more impressive each year.
And I’ve decided I really ought to be friends with them too. Mr Luscious would love them and this sort of thing. Perhaps we’ll move to California and be besties??
Oh my. How adorable is Prince George of Cambridge??
Tackling our Martha Stewart Room
Some of you may know that Mr Luscious is very, very handy – he can fix or build anything, from small appliances and general domestic repairs to complete houses and cars. It’s really pretty wonderful.
But unfortunately, he has a habit of not being organised when it comes to his tools. And this means that instead of going through the existing collection of paraphernalia, he drives 20 minutes away to the hardware store to buy more items when he’s working on a project. I feel this is both a waste of time and money, and it definitely creates a mess.
Hi Luscious Lifers,
Apologies for the lack of new posts.
I’m trying to get some work done on my novel (not going very well, alas, as I’ve decided it’s all awful!) and organise everything ahead of time for Christmas, so I’m a bit distracted at the moment. You can see some of the things I’m up to on Instagram and Twitter.
So if you’re looking for something to inspire you, please consider the following:
SHOPPING: There are several options for shopping, for yourself or family and friends, so start with the index in the LUSCIOUS SHOP for links to the Luscious Gift Guide, my picks for the most luscious brands, and individual shop categories (eg. mens, kids, home). I’m trying to update them regularly so keep popping back.
Thanks for your support, and remember to check out the Luscious page on Facebook too!
WEEKLY UPDATE: A belated, short-and-sweet recap this week, as I’ve been busy with writing and the Black Friday-Cyber Monday sales, and now I’m in Hobart, Tasmania for a short break…
What happens when you’re an award-winning actress with a family arriving for Thanksgiving dinner and your oven doesn’t work? You ask your equally famous actress neighbour if you can use her oven…
