I love to feel feminine, and am always creating my own inspiration. I find that introducing little pockets of femininity into my day helps everything run smoother. I feel more ladylike and life is enjoyable – even when I’m doing mundane tasks.
The first post in this series is on using the sense of taste to be more feminine.
Instead of a biscuit (cookie) or cake for afternoon tea, wash and slice an apple or other piece of fresh fruit and savour piece by piece from a pretty plate. Water-rich food is so deliciously plumping (in a hydrating way) to the cells of your body, and you will feel refreshed and light afterwards. Add several raw almonds for a balanced le goûter.
Find an herbal tea you like the look of and enjoy it daily. There are many different teas around – so many. If you are not a fan of traditional herbal teas such as peppermint or chamomile, try a fruit tea. When I settle down for a morning of writing, I like to make myself an herbal tea and top up with hot water when I get down to the half-way mark, many times over. ‘One’ cup lasts me hours! It’s nice to sip on plus I get good hydration plus I don’t snack when I am doing this. Win/win/win.
Find a petite morsel that you can love in moderation, to enjoy something sweet to finish off a meal. I am still loving bliss balls (my recipe here), and I find that one bliss ball with one small piece of dark chocolate go well together. Along the same lines is pairing a dried apricot with a piece of dark chocolate.
Do you have a femininity in taste tip to add? Please share in the comments below, I’d really love to hear.
We don’t have thanksgiving here in New Zealand, but in the lovely spirit of it, I wish all my chic readers a very happy thanksgiving. I’m so grateful you are here. Thank you.
