Good morning, reader!
I must say that of all of the pleasures the feminine woman is privileged enough to indulge herself in, feminine and lovely lingerie and nightwear might be one of my favorites. I love to browse different lingerie and nightwear websites of all different kinds, from Victoria's Secret to fine English brands, and collect photos as inspiration.
While on the journey to become a truly feminine woman, it's often helpful for us to find the things that help us to automatically feel more feminine whenever we do them -- and then we can do them often! ;-))

Good evening, reader!
My apologies for the long hiatus -- sometimes life simply gets in the way! :-))
Each feminine woman, I think, is different and 100% unique from her peers -- and this uniqueness and variation found among us is what keeps us so intriguing! ;-)) Wouldn't it be utterly boring if we were all so similar that we became predictable? I don't think there'd be as much fun and joy in being a feminine woman, do you? :-))
There are so many different feminine archetypes out there for us to start with and then blossom in. I think it's great to be able to find one that resonates with us and to be able to then find inspiration before blooming as our own unique selves.

Good afternoon, reader!
When it comes to the different pieces of magic that the magical feminine woman has in her trove, her delicate and gentle qualities are some of the most potent! After all, what qualities create a stronger contrast with the masculine man and the world that we both live in?
In this way, with the powers of her gentleness and delicateness, she serves as a peaceful respite from the society we live in, along with a piece of hope. Perhaps you can understand why I feel that feminine ladies aren't appreciated enough in society for the important role that we all play!
It's hard to imagine a woman who's feminine without being gentle or delicate on at least some level. Even those of us who are of the more spirited and playful archetype (which is the feminine archetype I'm in) will have a delicate and gentle side to us that can't be missed when it arises (nor can it be hidden).

Good evening, reader!
It's hard to start being a truly feminine lady if you lack feminine mannerisms and deportment. After all, all females may be born 'women' but one must earn the title of 'lady'! And she can do so by studying blogs such as this one so that she learns the behavior and qualities that women who have earned the title have.
Historically, the title of "lady" was not simply about a woman being warm, well-mannered, and refined in her tastes and interests. She also had to be very accomplished, cultivating a knowledge in music, literature, art, needlework, dancing, and more.
However, fortunately, today a woman's level of elegance isn't as focused on the level (or number) of her accomplishments but is focused very much on her personality and behavior.

If you look around at the kind of world and society in which we live in today, I think you might notice that it's significantly less interested in the amount of refinement, culture, and accomplishment that people have than before.
Life is more simple in many ways because people simply accomplish to provide a living for themselves whereas historically, a man or woman had to have a list of accomplishments and talents in order to be even accepted in the most 'intriguing' social circles.
Not only are less people accomplished in the sense of years past, but many people don't even think about how accomplished someone is or what talents they have. If someone seems attractive and interesting, then that's that!

August in Virginia has led to all of the flowers blooming in my garden. I've been enjoying lying out on the lawn in the back reading and writing (two of my favorite hobbies). It's so much more humid than I ever remember it being in Virginia, most likely because we tend to have a very moderate climate.
Last Thursday, I was doing some writing in the morning and started to think about the importance of hobbies for the feminine woman, especially if she's to have a keen social life.
It's hard for possible friends and romantic connections to see a place for themselves in your life if you don't already have a life built up, especially since no one wants to be the sole and center of it all. They want to feel that you have a beautiful life to share with them and enrich their own, not that they'll give you your life.

One of the things I believe most when it comes to relationships is that we can't change the person we're with (nor is it fair to go into a relationship planning to change them) -- we can only change ourselves!
You can never fully control how the man you're married to or romantically interested in behaves or acts, but what you can control is how you yourself behave and act (and also how you react to his behavior and actions).
And it's the way we ourselves behave in relation to how the other behaves that oftentimes makes the most significant difference!
I have never trusted books and e-products that claim to show you 'how to make a man fall in-love with you' or 'how to make a man faithful.' I don't believe that you can make him feel or do anything.
However, what you can do is control your own behavior and hopefully inspire his love for you and inspire him to be faithful to you and only you.

Regal and Accomplished Femininity: Finding the Balance Between Your Public Accomplishments and Your Marriage
This article is dedicated to a lovely reader, Rosy, who asked that it be written.
For many a feminine elegant lady who's either publicly accomplished by her own separate talents and gifts or born into a more public family that helped her talents gain publicity, it can be very challenging to maintain balance between her public regal side and her private side in her marriage or other aspects of her personal life.
After all, many of us put on a certain face to the public for the sake of decorum and remaining neutral, steering away from controversy (known as our 'public face'). The public will expect a certain thing or bearing from us and we often simply give it to them in order to keep peace and a good public image.
For many women, their 'public face' is not completely the same as who they are in private as women. That's not to say that the public face they put on is completely fake! After all, one woman's public face will be different from another's and a woman's 'public face' will often resemble who she is authentically -- it will simply be a version where she's more apt to think before she speaks and put more thought into how she's coming across to others. :-))
