Luxe Dix Favoris : ten favorite luxuries

This morning I was thinking of things in my life that I use just about every day. I decided to make a list of ten of the most important ones. None of these things are really absolutely necessary, that's why I deemed them luxuries, but they sure make my life easier and more enjoyable. And I would hate to part with any of them...even for a day.

Retin A, a good sunscreen...and a bit of fragrance. I have used prescription Retin A for years and I swear by it. Sunscreen, well I don't need to say anything about that! Fragrance, I think everyone should smell good when they are close enough to hug.

My computer, it is like my right arm and my brain, I would be lost without it, and horrors - I couldn't blog!

My sewing machine, my old pal way past its prime but still going strong. A present from my husband many Christmas's ago. It has made wedding dresses, bridemaids dresses, Halloween costumes, all of my home-decorating projects and most of my important clothes.

My KitchenAid mixer, Cuisinart food processor and a good chefs knife. I would be lost in the kitchen without these wonderful pieces of equipment.

And lastly, three humble gardening tools: clippers, gloves and a hand trowel, all rather beat up and yes...I could use a new pair of gloves. When I garden I carry these with me in my pockets everywhere!

What are your ten favorite luxuries? It will be fun to see if any of yours are the same as mine.


  1. Those are the exact bypass pruners and gloves (including color) that I use. Love my Kitchen Aid mixer, my perfume (Clinque Aromatics), and my chefs knife. Only thing I would have to add to the list is my tweezer.

    We Adrienne's are pretty dang smart...

  2. What a thought provoking post. Now my list would be different but this is a fun window that lets us see a little more of who you are.
    Thanks for stopping by BeColorful and leaving such a kind comment.
    Enjoy your weekend.

  3. I want to let you know that this is a great post! And it is not dumb at all! :) In fact, I think that I am going to copy this idea and post my list on my own blog! :)

  4. Super...I can hardly wait to see what your list will be.(-: I am glad you like it!

  5. Well, for me it is my perfume, my camera, my computer, my baking tools,my books. I don't think of anything else for the moment...Have a nice week. Catherine

  7. Many of mine are the same as yours...perfume, most definitely, my computer, camera, garden tools, sewing machine, good coffee...

    Have a great day!

  8. Oh, I share many things with yard tools, sewing machine, computer, digital camera, convection oven and my cutco knives...I love them all!
    Great post!!

  9. All of this things are completely necessary for the everyday life, what would we do without a bit of perfum and the gardening clippers?? Good you wear gloves, I can´t adjust myself with them when I´m gardening and this is why my hands can´t be shown...

  10. awesome list! i love to round up and put on paper the stuff that makes me feel good!

  11. I like your list...I would have to add my Vitamix for all the smoothies I make and my camera :)

  12. Love all your favorite things! I have too many to list! xo
