How Do You Define Luxury?



Source

 Sometimes the stars seems to align and I don’t even have to think about what to write about, something just sort of tells me to write about it. That happened this week. First, Shannon of The Simply Luxurious Life – who wrote a guest post for me recently – asked me to answer a few questions about what luxury means for me, for her weekly newsletter and then I spotted this post about a little bit of luxury over on Forty Not Out. And so with all of these “signs from the stars” I decided that now might be the perfect opportunity to explore the notion of luxury and what it means to me and to all of you.

Shannon asked me the following questions, which you too might like to ponder:

What luxuries do you include in your day-to-day life?
What luxuries do you hope to enjoy in the future?

How do you define luxury?

Now, if you would like to read my answers, you’ll have to sign up for the weekly newsletter on The Simply Luxurious Life before next Friday (19 November) and read them on there. It wouldn’t really be fair to post them here now, would it?
I would like to take something that Amanda wrote in her post on Forty Not Out:
There are times in life when we all appreciate a little luxury. I’m not talking the big ticket items – you don’t have to spend a fortune to feel special. Sometimes it’s as simple as bottle of wine that costs a few pounds more, a new book that you’ve been looking at for weeks but kept walking past, or an ultra-soft merino wool scarf to snuggle into on a cold morning.”

For me, this sums up the essence of luxury so completely. It isn’t about having the money to live an extravagantly luxurious lifestyle, it is about appreciating the little (and simple) luxuries which present themselves each day.
Remember to sign up to the newsletter to read my answers next week, but for now:

  1. Love these photos! Especially the first one – a candle lit evening in a spa. And Hagen Daz ice cream is my little luxury even once in a while (ie when it goes on sale in Tesco!)
