And the Winner is…


Actually before I tell you who the winner of the L’Occitane en Provence Giveaway is, I want to tell you how thoroughly impressed I am with your creative and varied answers to my question What is your current favorite little luxury?

Your answers were so passionate and inspiring- they made me look at little luxuries in a whole new light. Your little luxuries ranged from beauty items, to fine food, to activities to daily rituals … and this got me thinking… what if we treated everything in our lives like a little luxury? Even the most mundane and hated of tasks (such as emptying the dishwasher, or paying bills)?

I believe if we get to the point where we can treat every delectable moment in our life as a little luxury we are truly living well indeed…

Okay, enough with my luxurious rant. The winner of the Relaxing Lavender Hand and Foot Cream from L’Occitane en Provence is…

REBECCA

Congrats to Rebecca and I love the point about making all little moments luxuries or looking for the luxury in them. xx

I hate blow drying my hair so I try to pretend like it's meditation time to turn it into luxury "me" time. It doesn't work too well but I try. ;)

Félicitations, Rebecca! (And what a cutie little dog...)

Luxury, sometimes, is as simple as a quiet moment to write! It was great fun thinking about what we consider luxurious at various points in time. So thanks for that!

Brittany said...

Thank you for the kind words. I am kind of new to blogging so I'm kind of wondering in the dark seeing what works! I appricaite the feed back!!

The Daily Connoisseur said...

Thanks Josephine!

Merveilleux- Thank you for your comment- YES!! I have the same thing with blow drying my hair! I detest it and do not look forward to it! I'm going to try thinking of it as a little luxury...

Thanks Sharon! Gatsby is the love of my life (along with my husband of course)

Tessa- How did the school lunch making go? I ordered Antonia Fraser's Mary Queen of Scots on your recommendation. Thank you!

Coastal Chicster- Oh dear! That is going to be a little harder to pretend it's a little luxury... good luck!

Big Little Wolf- Thank you from me and thank you from Gatsby! He loves compliments ;)

I have enjoyed reading your blog before, merci, but what really made me click through from Bonjour Madame was the divine little dog I saw. And Gatsby is such a wonderful name for him. He looks like he'd be great company. I am betting he is totally spoilt by you and your husband too!

The Daily Connoisseur said...

Fiona- Thank you so much! Gatsby is truly the joy of my life. I took him to get his nails trimmed today and he behaved very well so I gave him his favorite treat (a little luxury Gatsby-style) :)

I would like to win the pup (Gatsby)
In lieu of that can I add him to a your pets post?
Adorable...

Fiona said...

Every dog deserves a pawdicure to look and feel his best.

The Daily Connoisseur said...

Paris Breakfasts- Gatsby would be honored to be included in a your pets post! Thank you! xo

Lovely! I do try to think of paying my bills as a luxury - it's a luxury that we're not in debt!
