Saturday Loves 12

I hope your weekend is off to a fabulous start!  This morning marks a personal best for me…eight miles of Cardio in the gym.  I dream of running a marathon…slowly yet surely, I’m working towards my goal.  

I returned home for a quick soak in a relaxing bath.  I find the rosemary mint body wash rejuvenating.  It’s a wonderful aromatic pick-me-up reserved for arduous days in the studio.  This morning, I discovered it’s equally fantastic after a grueling workout. Then, much to hubby’s dismay (he wanted to snuggle), I dressed and quickly dashed out again for a Pilates stretch class.

And now, a few links…Wishing you a splendid weekend filled with endless joy and merriment!

I’ve been contemplating adding a chalk board above my desk.  I find this vignette inspiring.  Additional photos here and here.  Photographer unknown via The Style Files.

I love delicious, nutritious, and simple recipes.  I’m looking forward to trying the Asian Sesame Chicken Salad later in the week.  Photographed by Kim Jones for Camilla Styles.  

Also, Saveur has announced the Best Food Blog award winners for 2014.  Did any of your favorites make the list?

Lastly, Five Less Touristy Places for Great Views of Paris was compiled by Amy for m dashing.  I travel to Paris later this year and I’m always on the lookout for new locations that offer scenic vantage points.
