By insulting other women, you dull your own beauty.
Southern Belles are sweeter than sweet tea, stronger than Tara’s foundation, with passion as fierce as a hurricane and love as deep as the Mississippi. They only make women that way in the South.
Women need to give themselves more credit: we are much stronger than we think and we will survive, endure, and overcome any obstacle that stands in our way.
The amount of class a woman has is determined by the grace she carries herself with and the height at which she holds her head…not the brand of handbag on her arm or the amount of money in her back pocket.
We Southern Belles may appear to be as dainty and delicate as Magnolia petals, but we are as strong as Cypress roots.
The most beautiful women in the world are those of the South; Southern Belles. God’s greatest creation.
Belles and Beaus—
I can’t believe it has only been 9 months since I started Lessons from a Southern Belle and already I have hit 1000 followers. I am so floored, so very humbled, and so incredibly proud of what this little project has turned into.
I started the blog for one simple reason: I wanted to share my heritage. I think that as we grow and change we tend to forget the most important part of our past…and that is where we come from. This blog was always meant to celebrate the women in my life and the advice they have given me over the years, but it too has transformed in barely a year. It really is a celebration of all Southern women and what we bring to the table as far as our lives go.
I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart. I wish there were a way I could invite all of you over and we could sit on the back porch for some sweet tea. Buuuut…since so many of you are far away and that just isn’t possible right now, I’ve decided to have a giveaway!
On July 27th, I will be posting the prize package from Teavana (worth over $75.00) and contest rules in that post. The winner will be selected from a random drawing and the package will be shipped to them. I’ll include more information when I post on August July 27th.
Again, let me personally thank you all for following this blog, sending inspirational messages, and for always encouraging me to continue. There are a lot more exciting things coming for Lessons from a Southern Belle in the near future and I do hope you all will stay along for the ride!
Your Favorite Southern Belle
We should always take style advice from Vogue and the rest of the fashion world.
The real lesson?
Deem your own style. There is nothing more boring than a woman who dresses like the rest.
It is a shame when a woman constantly ridicules and desperately tries to humiliate fellow women to make herself feel better. Attempting to tear another person’s self-esteem apart is uglier than a bad outfit, a fake handbag, a big ass, or teased hair.
