Welcome to Luxury Week! If you’ve been with us a while, this probably looks new. If you’re just joining us, welcome, again! Glad to have you here. The idea of introducing weekly themes to our editorial content has been brewing for a while, partly out of necessity (small editorial team + lots of ideas = slightly chaotic), and also as an attempt to cut through the era of too much content on the internet.

Deciding what we’re focusing on each week not only allows us to pull together some of our favorite on-topic photos from around the interweb for you to browse- the ‘luxury’ selection is waiting for you at the bottom of this post, right after I get done yammering- but it also provides a better platform for discussion.

With regards to this weeks’ topic, what is your definition of luxury? Indulging in a glass of red wine at the end of the day? Weekly spray tans? Your daily yoga class that keeps you semi-sane?

I’ve always thought of luxury through the lens of price point: things that are expensive must be luxurious. Therein lies the problem, though. The term ‘luxury’, especially in the last few years, has become less and less about things, and more about choices. Luxury isn’t just about whether or not the glass of wine I’m drinking after work is expensive; it’s the fact that I have the ability to choose to drink wine at the end of my day that feels luxurious. What luxury really comes down to is time- how you prioritize it, and what you choose to do with it, speaks volumes about what’s important to you.

In the coming weeks, we’re getting down to business about butts, (yes, you read that correctly), color, new-age wellness, popularity and more, but in the meantime, drop us a line with your opinion on the topic du jour, then go hit up our most recent interview with the lovely Ashley Avignone who might legitimately be the human embodiment of luxury, and beyond that, just keep being the team players you’ve all proven yourselves to be.
