Lady of Leisure

PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket

Hi loves! And happy mid-week to you all!

More daydreaming today coming your way. I've finally gotten around to reading some books this summer at the beach house and I'm having a hard time putting the books down once the work week starts. Unfortunately there's little or no time to read during the week. Would love to be able to find some time to indulge in some reading over the next few days. Ah to be a lady of leisure.  One can dream, right? :)

Have a wonderful day, sweets!

xoxo

You are right! its hard to find sometime to read during the work week, I try to read few pages in bed before I sleep but its not enough. One should always dream :)

Ahh you're right...to be a lady of leisure...We've been away but everything was so hectic. I've got books all over the place waiting to be picked up again. I try to read every night, even if it's only a page :)

classiq said...

I hope you'll find time for a little reading during the week too. I feel so much better when I'm able to do that, one more worthy thing checked for the day. Have a beautiful Wednesday, Dawn! xo

Of course, Dawn, but sometimes I am so tired that I only see the couch and a good glass of wine or some chocolate, bustedddddddd! But tomorrow I am going on a long vacation (yeeeeh, two weeks) and I plan to read on the beach...

Have a lovely weekend :D and good reading ;)

Lindsey @ be pretty said...

Amen sista... it's so hard to read during the week... for us, we're constantly distracted by tv, eating out, cocktails and the internet... which is sad! Keep dreaming girly, at least we have our weekends to put our nose in the books! Hope your week is going good. xoxo

It's really great when you have time to read something in the peace, without rushing... I bet you'll find more time for some pretty reading material during this summer!:)
Happy Wednesday darling!

I love getting lost in a good book. I always read last thing at night to unwind.

I have also finally gotten around to start reading from the books that have been waiting for me. I try to read during my comute, although sometimes just stare out the window and leave the reading for the weekend :) xoxo

Oh to be a lady of leisure every now and then is a must to keep our sanity.

With love... said...

Oh Dawn, this looks divine. Love it.

Samantha Green said...

that last image looks like perfection... beautiful, comfy couch, pretty flowers and a bottle of white wine! which books are you reading? any recommendations? xx

Liz {Sequins And Stripes} said...

I could not agree more with this dream! I actually just escaped for the week and am planning on reading at least two books before Friday? We'll see! Summer days need to last forever.

There is nothing I love more than relaxing on the beach with a good book! I try to read during the week but it doesn't always happen.

rolala said...

Being a lady of leisure is a lovely dream indeed. I try to read before sleeping sometimes but I'm always tired by the 2nd page ;p Happy Wednesday!

I want to find a new book to get hooked on - hmm maybe I should start "Hunger Games" or the "Shopaholic" series - great summer reads right?

Alexa said...

A lady of leisure sounds just about right at this moment. I'll join you in the daydream Dawn!

Alexis Grace said...

I tend to be the type that when I pick up a book I can't put it back down! I have read books in the past week. As a a result my work has suffered! I have put myself on a reading-hiatus until I get through some big work projects...

Oh to Be a Muse said...

This is why you need to be on a beach vacay for longer than a weekend...so you can be a lady of leisure, of course.

Melisande said...

beautiful photos! i've been reading so much lately too. i love it!

Aubrey {All Things Bright and Beautiful} said...

I need to force myself to sit down and start a book...I just haven't done it in a while and I have a *stack* of things just begging to be read! Good inspiration, my dear (c:

The weekdays are so hectic it's nice to have the weekends to look forward to at the beach house for lounging and reading. Being a lady of leisure is a beautiful thing... : ) Every girl should try it, don't you think?!
