Baubles & Bling - ROM Currelly Society Event


 

As a member of the ROM's (Royal Ontario Museum) Currelly Society I had the privilege of being invited to experience the splendour of spectacular gems and precious stones with Katherine Dunnell - ROM Mineralogy Technician.
This particular August day was one of the hottest we were experiencing ... 
thank goodness for light cotton and linen.

With the humidity levels through the sky ... curly locks won...

Attendees were encouraged to wear or bring along their favourite jewels and share the story of their acquisition, if they so desired.

I brought along my summertime favourite earrings that I acquired from dear friend Vanessa's boutique  Luxuria Jewellery Boutique . These beauties were the perfect touch of colour with summer's neutrals, whites and creams. If you have not visited the Luxuria boutique you are missing out on some fabulous beauties. Collections within the Luxuria Jewellery Boutique are not massed produced, so you know you are getting a true work of art. I received brilliant compliments at the Currelly event.

Wishing you a luxuriously balanced life,

Simple Pleasures - Fresh Cut Flowers



Fresh cut flowers not only add beauty to your home they are great for helping uplift your mood.


You don't need to spend a lot of money. These two bouquets from the local market were just 2/$10 ...

Add an extra touch by using an unexpected container ... this metal water pitcher with it's leather handle not only makes the purple colour of the daisies pop, but adds interest.


the lilies and yellow blooms look so elegant in this glass vase ...


We all experience morning blahs from time to time .... start your day with a positive attitude by keeping a fresh cut bouquet on your vanity. You can't help but smile as you look at them, instantly changing your mood to a friendlier, happier and more positive out look throughout your day.


People with fresh cut flowers in their home are most likely to feel less worried and feel fewer periods of anxiety or depression.


Fresh cut flowers are definitely a simple pleasure with lots of luxurious impact.

Are fresh flowers a regular staple in your home?

Wishing you a luxurious balanced weekend,
