Let’s kick off the weekend with some new reading material.
Here’s what I’ve been loving lately:
The Simply Luxurious Life
Shannon of The Simply Luxurious Life has crafted a beautiful lifestyle blog that’s all about refined living on an everyday income. The focus is on quality over quantity, timeless fashions instead of trendy ones and everything else that’ll help you live a truly fulfilling life. A fellow France lover and the proud owner of a handsome Cavalier King Charles spaniel named Norman, Shannon’s blog is not to be missed.
Sisterhood of the Traveling WAGS
This fun blog is run by two gals living in Switzerland. Over at Sisterhood of the Traveling WAGS, Aleks and Sophie touch on relationship topics, shopping, beauty, travel and more. Both living in the Swiss Alps because of their husbands’ jobs, they met each other over a few bottles of wine one night and realized they were destined to be friends. Oh, and they’re nice. So there’s that.
A Lady Goes West
Ashley lives in San Francisco and is the personal trainer and group fitness instructor behind one of my fave healthy living blogs, A Lady Goes West. We get a glimpse into her life including all the details on new Les Mills launches, the latest in health and fitness trends, tips on all-things-health and more. Always smiling and inspiring, Ashley is popular for a reason, so check her out.
Originally from California, Marianne is an American au pair in France and she blogs over at The Californienne. She shares info about her life caring for two French kids, travels around France and beyond and my personal fave, How not to be awkward in France. I can definitely relate!
Oh God, My Wife Is German
I have never been to Germany, have no plans to go there and don’t speak a word of German, but the anonymous author of this blog has a style that’s so engaging that I can’t help but read his every word. My fave post: How the German language is trying to kill you. Absolutely worth a read!
Something Swanky Desserts and Designs
Ashton’s blog is pure gold but I’m too focused on these Skinny Funfetti Buttermilk Pancakes to click on anything else right now. They’re made with oat flour (great for those who are gluten-free), taste great and are way healthier than box mixes. Did I mention they’re pretty?
What are you up to this weekend? Has anyone seen Fifty Shades of Grey? Finding a VO version here is proving difficult and something about dubbed movies just isn’t the same.
