Let's Lounge & A Giveaway!

Happy Monday, lovelies! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Mine was wonderful but as usual, not long enough. Sometimes I wish I were a lady of leisure. I really would like nothing better than getting to lounge around my apartment doing whatever my little heart desires.

Take a bath...perhaps. How bout a nap? Sounds great to me. Laying around reading a magazine while sipping a cup of tea? Paradise! And of course if I'm going to be a lady of leisure I'm going to need the appropriate loungewear.

And I just happen to have the perfect destination for such things. Plum Pretty Sugar Loungerie!

Plum Pretty Sugar Loungerie was borne from the idea of breezy happiness, cozy comfort and easy-living chic. Imagined in dreams, it features giftable, gorgeous silhouettes in whisper-soft fabric in enchanting garden of eden-inspired palettes.

Launched in 2009 by Charlotte Mills, the idea behind Plum Pretty Sugar is that you can look beautiful and still feel beautiful. The collection is chock full of gorgeous robes, lovely dresses & tunics, lounge sets and they even have a beautiful bedding collection. I'm seriously head over heels!

I am a very recent follower of Plum Pretty Sugar and am in LOVE with the line! My husband set up a surprise 40th Birthday party spa getaway 2 weeks ago and flew in my two besties from forever to surprise me as well. One girl I had not seen in 11 years, the other moved out of our neighborhood (in Chattanooga TN) to glamorous Miami last year.
Miami friend gave me the Beckoning creatures knee length kimono robe for my birthday and it is scrumptious :) I am currently drooling over the Silk Road Sweet Tank, so gorgeous.
I follow you via google blogger, and I believe that you are about as stylish and fun as my "Miami friend"!

Oh, goodness! I would so love to be a woman who has breakfast pjs, day-dress, and an evening dress. It would mean for a bit more laundry (okay, let's be serious...it wouldn't be much more at all), but that's a small price to pay, really.
