It’s been a new year with past ideas and dreams left behind and taking new steps to fulfill new hopes and dreams in the horizon. As I get older, I feel I need to streamline more, as I feel there seems to be more and more demands made on my time.
Looking back, I truly relished the earlier days of my youth, where time was abundant and I could devote a lot more time to a project, a goal or whatever caught my fancy. I smile upon reflection and was glad I seized those endless summers.
Elegance is something that I continue to strive for. There, however is less emphasis on how I look (still decent and as casually beautiful as much as possible) but rather in the choices I make – and how I do things.
Decisions has always been something I hate making.
It’s been a year of narrowing choices and simplifying. I have to figure out how to live my life more elegantly. I may have to cut down going to the supermarket on a whim, or simplify my meals so that I can eat better and healthier but not compromise on my enjoyment. I will have to de-clutter more so that I don’t have so many things in the house to manage…that sort of thing.
Elegance requires thinking, planning, simplifying and making tough choices. It is a harder one, but overall, it actually makes life easier.

Up and Coming
I don’t want to make any promises as I’ve got my certificate in teaching ballet to complete, my job and a host of other things but I’m working on 2 projects for elegant.
1) An elegant DIY beauty book (sold exclusively on elegantwoman.org as it is product & method orientated). I wrote this as a way to archive cultural beauty methods, my research hobby since 2007. I enjoyed uncovering beauty secrets from beautiful mature women.
2) Secondly, I’ve been working on an Manners & Etiquette essentials course. The course is mainly for the daughters for many elegant mothers who had requested for it. My suggestion is they can do it together. The course will focus on essentials, with an fine elegant touch.

I thought it would be a great way to connect with everyone.
Have a great day, thanks for reading,
