PERSONAL UPDATE: A writer’s life in the countryside

LUSCIOUS LIVING: A writer's life in the country

 

Luscious Lifers, new posts are once again largely on hold as I finally, finally, finally try to get back to focussing on writing my books after many months of upheaval re: our house move (back) to Red Hill, and some other personal bits and pieces.

Fortunately, it’s the first day of Spring here on the Mornington Peninsula, so hopefully the sunnier days and blossoming gardens will help get me back on track too. If you’d like to see some snippets from the new house, do scroll through my Instagram pix.

Most days, I’m doing some cooking (expanding my low carb, ketogenic diet options), taking Mabel for a walk or game in the surrounding countryside, learning French and playing tennis. After years of corporate work, it’s absolute bliss to have this freedom, and I can’t thank Mr Luscious enough for supporting my creative endeavours. I am so very lucky and very happy.

I’ve now got five books on the go, at various stages of completion, including a literary murder mystery, a French travel guide, and an attempt at humour. Slowly but surely, I hope they will all find their way to those of you who are interested.

If you’re craving something luscious to inspire you whilst I potter around behind the scenes, please consider going back to the archives on the blog via the Photo Galleries tab, or browse through the myriad boards on Pinterest. For something new, remember to check out Facebook and Instagram where it’s easier for me to post more regularly.

Thank you for all your ongoing support of my little Luscious venture!

LUSCIOUS LIVING: A quick update

 

Luscious living - Chanel lusciousness - glamorous gifts

 

 

Hi Luscious Lifers,

Apologies for the lack of new posts.

I’m trying to get some work done on my novel (not going very well, alas, as I’ve decided it’s all awful!) and organise everything ahead of time for Christmas, so I’m a bit distracted at the moment. You can see some of the things I’m up to on Instagram and Twitter.

So if you’re looking for something to inspire you, please consider the following:

FASHION: Whilst some of the links are broken (thanks to Facebook doing another upgrade, grrr), you might like to randomly flick through some of our fashion editorial collections.

ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN: If you’re looking for ideas for beautiful homes, from interiors to gorgeous gardens, then you might like some of the posts and galleries in this collection.

HEALTHY LIVING: Follow my progress with my weight loss via a ketogenic diet via the Wednesday Weight blog post series. Start with Week 1 (currently up to Week 6)

FESTIVE ENTERTAINING: We’ve got several boards on Pinterest devoted to Christmas, gifts and entertaining, so do pop by and check them out, and remember to select the FOLLOW ALL option.

MUSIC TO SCROLL BY: Music makes life much lovelier, no? So browse through our “Music to scroll by” posts and let me know some of your favourites too.

SHOPPING: There are several options for shopping, for yourself or family and friends, so start with the index in the LUSCIOUS SHOP for links to the Luscious Gift Guide, my picks for the most luscious brands, and individual shop categories (eg. mens, kids, home). I’m trying to update them regularly so keep popping back.

Thanks for your support, and remember to check out the Luscious page on Facebook too!

Luscious guide to Paris

Apologies to everyone who’s been coming back each day for a new Luscious post but not finding anything new – I’ve been distracted by the research and writing of my Luscious Guide: 10 weeks of luscious living in Paris, Central France and the French Riviera.

I hope you’ll like it. Watch this space!

In the meantime, I’m still posting regularly on FacebookPinterestInstagramGoogle+ and Twitter. And you might like the French-related photos here.
