Dearest Reader and Luxury lifestyle lover, Imagine a world where you are surrounded by great beauty, joy and deliciousness – this is some of what awaits you in the world of EAT LOVE SAVOR! At EAT LOVE SAVOR, the magazine with an intriguing name. We welcome you to Rediscover Luxury; simple through grand, all the Goodness that life has to offer, and the Art of Luxury Living. I’m inspired by luxury – its deeper meaning and definition. ‘Luxury’ has been debated for centuries and is both simple & complex! A luxury lifestyle is more than just about materialism. It is so much more than that. It is about appreciation, heritage, connoisseurship, enjoyment, time to enjoy and create moments… Luxury is a state of mind, a choice and a way of living. These believes are married with the EAT LOVE SAVOR brand and are poured into each page. EAT LOVE SAVOR…

The Luxury of Time Dearest Reader, There is something so enchanting about the gentle sound of a masterfully created timepiece. My love affair with the timepieces began long ago, falling in love with a gorgeous piece of art that was my grandparents Grandfather clock. Sitting with great authority in the foyer in their massive home, echoing up the circular staircase, with its confident announcements of the time; there was a great comfort in that clock, as though it was a father watching over its family giving them a sense of comfort merely with its presence. As I would fall asleep, I smiled to myself when the house quieted and all I could hear was that lovely clock. During the day, as the sunshine would pour into the window and glint off the gold weights and pendulum, I would sit at the base of the stairs mesmerized by the structured movement…

JEWELRY FOREVER Dearest Reader, From my earliest memory, I always had an affinity for jewelry. Not just because they were pretty, shiny and fetching but also because something within them captivated me; I felt a deep connection to gem stones. There within the glitter and baubles lies a soul in this little piece of the earth that we inhabit, something rarefied, hard to find and unearth amidst the rubble and dirt that lay around it. Then it takes careful mastery of an age-old craft to bring out the best in this tiny element that will adorn us, and likely be selected with purpose and passed on, one hopes, to generations after us. Fine jewelry represents a legacy and heritage to mankind and to our families, loves and lives. Jewelry is so much more than ornamentation; it is a reflection of the journey of man and of life. So with that…

The Magic of Making ‘Beauty’ a Priority Dearest Reader, Everywhere we look particularly in the news, there seems to be an ongoing barrage of messages highlighting the negative – the ugly side of life and of people. Day after day, these messages and images are drawing your attention to the coarse, harsh, vulgar and other nastiness. Meanwhile, quietly present all around us lies Beauty, simply everywhere and in everything. I’m not referring merely to physical beauty, but something much more meaningful… instead, think bigger, think “Beauty in everything”. Beauty is All Around Us Nature is the ultimate example of simple beauty, and its existence is a testament to its never-ending beautiful force. No matter how devastating the destruction, nature always prevails, taking over it pushes through and out springs the beauty of life. Man is also capable of creating great beauty, always inspired by nature in some way, and it…

Updated March 2013 According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, the definition of luxury is: A condition of abundance or great ease and comfort : sumptuous environment <lived in luxury>; a : something adding to pleasure or comfort but not absolutely necessary <one of life’s luxuries>. In the Webster’s NewWorld dictionary the definition of luxury is: Luxury: the unusual intellectual or emotional pleasure or comfort derived from some specific thing, something producing such pleasure or comfort, and of course, the use and enjoyment of the best and the most costly things that offer the most physical comfort and satisfaction. Enduring Hallmarks of Luxury While things like prestige, exclusivity, and premium price tags are the enduring hallmarks of buying luxury items, however, there is much more to luxury than that. There is an evolution and change to the definition of the word ‘luxury’. This new definition centers on the more easily attainable aspects…
