The little everyday luxuries are what make up “la vie en luxe.” Incorporating small pleasures into your day can completely change your outlook on things. To start the year on the right, luxurious, Jimmy-Choo-clad foot, we came up with nine simple ways to add luxury to your day TODAY! Pretty much everything on this list could be accomplished right now – and we promise they will turn a mundane day into a fabulous, sparkly, refined day.
This morning: Start the day off like the always-chic french women – with a skim cappuccino. A whisp of cinnamon makes it extra special. | Make the day wonderful by spritzing on your favorite perfume. Never fear using it up! Enjoy the luscious scent as often as you can. | Fresh pink roses are just so lovely! A bouquet will run you around $10 and can last over a week with proper care.
This afternoon: A mid-day manicure will take only a few minutes but feel extra refined. Polish changes at the salon are less than $10, but a quick DIY job is just as fun! | Close your eyes and sip – suddenly you’re transported to a tropical holiday in the Maldives. A healthy treat packed with protein and fruit also doubles as a mid-day mental vacation. | Burning candles can be extremely relaxing and soothing. Lighting a pleasant scent will recharge you to get through the day – especially from your favorite luxury scent designer.
This evening: End the day with a bubble bath! Even if you can only soak for 15 minutes, the lavish bubbles, warm water, and quiet moments will end the day on an indulgent note. | Reading books, especially light, girly ones, allows your mind to settle down for a good night’s sleep. A chapter or two will lead you into a Sleeping Beauty snooze. | Pop, fizz, clink! It’s always time for champagne, but the bubbly will end the day on a sparkly note. Cheers!
