A blanket of dark clouds stretch far above, they seem to have become a fixture in the sky, their tears hit the windows. Birds sing to a sea of drowning blossoms, the grey day ticks by. A day spent cuddled up in the warmth of a cashmere scarf, music enchanting the room, then later a coffee with a friend in the bustling city.

“Femininity is every woman’s gift”

“Candles flicker against the white walls, she parts her red lips as a smile enchants her face. In the dim light her dark eyes glimmer…”

The discreet and charming nature of femininity is a gift of all women, yet not all decide to experience and understand its delicate and subtle ways. Whether it be the way she holds herself or the curse of her writing, femininity is every woman’s greatest strength. Take time for yourself and treasure your quirks.

Femininity through my eyes..

•Care and compassion; beauty starts from within, the feminine traits of care and compassion are the most important of all. A beautiful body without this is simply a hollow shell, pointless and wasted.

• Perfume; the signature of a lady, the memory that lingers after your departure. Perfume is an intimate portrayal of the understanding of oneself.

•Red Lipstick, Smoky eyes and nude lips; these two make up styles for me are the go to for simple, understated beauty. Remember, makeup is there to enhance not create.

•Art and creativity; every woman has the power of creation, look after your mind and emotions, everything else will naturally fall into place.

•Inspiration; find something that inspires you and surround yourself with it. Have direction and pursue things that you love and fill your life with joy.

My week so far…

  1. You have the most amazing photographs on your blog. Your ideals of beauty/femininty also were so warm and nice to read. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Lovely insight you have there on femininity, and shows a lot of passion in your writing, i super like it!!!! My fave is the perfume and make up. I cannot live without make up and i always love finding my own unique scent every now and then=)

    Lately i’ve been looking at some Jo Malone perfumes, and i’ve quite fallen for the English Pear & Freesia scent. I’m also pretty attached to Chloe Eau de Parfum for the past 2 years!!!

    I love your last line regarding make up; make up is there to enhance not create. Funny enough, i keep thinking of this line when i go to cosmetic counters these days,lol. Plus it makes me feel better as i been feeling crap nowadays that i have to use make up to make myself look more awake/fresh/presentable when i go to work, lol.

    And yes, inspiration is never ending and we can find it everywhere if we just open our eyes. Your blog is definitely one of my sources when seeking for inspirations or to find a delightful read;-)
