Welcome to The Vivant!

Accessible luxury. Because everyone deserves just a little bit more. We believe you don’t have to be a millionaire to live like one. You don’t have to consign yourself to bologna sandwiches and cheap lager, when you can cook up a gourmet meal for not too much money and enjoy a top-notch Bulgarian wine that is every bit as good as the Bordeaux which costs five times as much.

We believe you can still enjoy your weekend in Manhattan in a swanky hotel and enjoy some of the best restaurants the city has to offer. You can take that trip to Paris without blowing your budget, and no, you don’t always have to sit in the nosebleed section of the theater when you go to a show.

We believe in style, and we wholeheartedly contend that poorly-fitting dungarees and a tee-shirt with a 1980s rock band logo cap do not represent legitimate fashion. (And we’re from the Midwest, so we see a lot of that!) We prefer a fedora over a baseball cap, and a good pair of brogues over those cheap basketball shoes you’ve worn for too long. You can do better. We’ll show you how you can look like a million bucks without having to spend a million bucks.  

We’re not here to show you how “the other half” lives so you can look on in drooling envy, we’re here to show you how you can be the other half, regardless of your budget.

Here is where you’ll find information on the best restaurants, some fabulous recipes to try out at home, the latest styles for men and women, and the low-down on all of life’s simple pleasures that are there for the taking.

The Vivant is your home for the living the good life. Watch for exciting content, reach out to us with your comments and suggestions, and please follow us on Twitter and Facebook. You can contact us directly at editor@thevivant.com

Life is too short to deny yourself simple pleasures. Enjoy.
