Ways To Embrace Your Femininity

I love being a woman. I love being a girl…being female.  Let’s face it, there are just some things in life that are inherently “feminine.” It’s within our right to enjoy them. To not feel weak or silly for liking what is in our nature.

I love engaging in girly things. I relish enjoying those things that make me feel like a lady.  In fact, as a mom, I depend on them. They remind me that it feels good to feel good and look good as a woman. As a girl.  And when I do, I feel stronger. More vibrant. I’m ready to take on life because I’m more in my “zone.”

Here are just a few ideas of things I do to help me embrace my feminity.

*Wear purfume. Whether it’s the scent of the beach in summertime, fruits, or flowers – purfume is a simple thing to add to help you feel like a woman. Everyone likes to smell good!

*Accessorize! So many women forget accessories. They are not only important in making an outfit look pulled together, but they are so fun to buy!  Earrings, belts, bracelets, necklaces, rings, watches, and scarves. Most can be purchased inexpensively and in many different styles to compliment your own. But it’s amazing how a few simple accessories can make you feel so much more stylish and pulled together. And feminine.

*Add a little color. If you aren’t into a lot of girly things – even a little lipgloss can add a feminine accent.

*Paint your nails and toes.  So many colors. So much fun! So easy and so inexpensive.

*Embrace the “girlie” things in life. Things like romantic movies (otherwise known as “chick flicks”), great smelling potpourri, fresh flowers, smelly lotions in all kinds of scents under the sun, and stylish purses.

*If at all possible, have fun decorating or embellishing something that is otherwise plain. Enjoy your passion for zebra patterns by getting a fun zebra cell phone cover. Or get a cute little Post-It note pack instead of the plain yellow.  The fun in being a girl is in knowing we can decorate or use a fun pattern or style in almost anything.

*Don’t forget what’s underneath.  Keep your “underthings” in good condition. Purchase new ones when the time comes.  Make sure you are getting the right sizes and have fun wearing pretty things. Just because it’s not seen by everyone doesn’t mean it can’t be cute! You are wearing it. Go for the cute!

Have fun doing all of these and then add in the things that inherently make you beautiful and you are good to go!

I think it’s fun being a girl. I love it. I hope you can really enjoy it as well. Go for the pink. Go for the turquoise. And love every moment of it.
