Easy Treats

nullnullnull

Happy Thursday, loves! Hope you're all enjoying your week. I'm so happy the weekend's almost here because I have a fairly quite weekend ahead and I definitely need it.

I know I've been talking a lot this week about slowing down and living a more mellow existence. And I started thinking about what little luxuries I can treat myself with while taking it easy. Pretty lingerie, some Ladurée and a beautiful orchid would most certainly do the trick.

How do you all like to treat yourself?

Enjoy the day, sweets and I'll see you all tomorrow!

Gorgeous images Sweets.
How do I treat myself? How long have you got?
OK, if I have to give one or two treats; a massage or manicure, a decadent pudding of some kind, new make-up or a luxurious face cream ;-)

Dark chocolate, Turkish coffee, fresh flowers from the market, a stack of magazines, a good book and a good movie (just two or three of these would do the trick). Have a beautiful day, Dawn! xo

I treat mysef by doing absolutely nothing and not feeling guilty about it. That wont happen this weekend though because I have to do my taxes. uuggghhhh.

Christine @Fancy Function said...

Well, I'm treating myself with a massage next week! Maybe a new nail polish or lip gloss - and some sweet treats always help too. :)

Sometimes there's nothing better than a calm, relaxing, do-nothing weekend. I ilke to sleep in, have a great brunch, and do a little shopping :)

Ladurees are always the best treat! I was in the airport looking at some YSL lipstick - hmm should i splurge? It definitely would be a fun purchase!

Elle Sees said...

I'd love a little treat.I should do that this weekend.

B. in the Know said...

Those sound like lovely little ways to treat yourself. I love yummy coffee and macaroons - glorious! Or curling up in bed and watching TV - honestly do not get to do it often, so when I do I adore it.
Much love,
B

Laura said...

My best treat is always a glass of red wine, which I used to feel guilty if I drank alone, but now I just enjoy it and love myself for it. Also indulging in watching many episodes from tv series in one sitting is a great treat!

Adele said...

Retail therapy always works a treat for me! I wish we had a Laduree close by (mind you I'd probably be twice the size I am!!)
Have a fab Thursday xoxo

I think you should hit the spa and get a pedicure and a massage. I desperately need to treat myself to a pedicure.

Sunny Days and Starry Nights

Ann said...

Those are absolutely nice treats...
Oh I am so getting a massage this weekend with my hubby and son,
yes the little one gets into a spa with us. And a mani and pedi and then a nice dinner. And I am definitely getting a new book.

Mary Jo at TrustYourStyle said...

All of those sound really lovely, I have been craving macarons lately {could be the diet I'm on}, keep thinking I will take a bath but running out of time...probably need sleep the most. Hope you had a great time in New Orleans, sorry I have been absent--just swamped with work! Thank you for your very sweet comment about my new bag line!
