The Beginning


Thanks for joining me!

This blog is about relationships, style and etiquette. It was inspired by my effort to convince my teenage daughter that there is indeed a happy medium between:

  • modesty and fashion
  • good manners and individuality
  • respecting the rules and challenging them

Perhaps a challenge for us adults too, huh?

My struggle to find balance gave birth to the idea for a book and also this blog. I want to cherish every relationship, respect each individual personality, but at the same time there is a line to draw.

I am here to say:

  • Let’s all be polite again, at home, on the street, at work and online.
  • Let’s find a way to express ourselves genuinely whilst wholeheartedly respecting all others.

I want to explore and promote individuality and honest relationships. I want to communicate boundaries without harming affection.

On a practical note, individuality is expressed through:

  • how we speak and what we say
  • how we look and how we present ourselves in each social situation
  • what choices we make and how we act on them

Those are the issues that I plan to explore in this blog.

The theory and the practice of savoir-faire, in an honest and thoughtful way.
