What it Really Means to be Ladylike

Ever since I began researching Beauty (and later Febas), and its role as a spiritual Virtue in Irish Polytheism, I’ve become sort of entranced by the idea of ladyship; I’ve given it a lot of thought over the last year, and I’ve come to several conclusions about it. Most notable among these conclusions, is that the concept of ladyship that we subscribe to today is about as far removed from its historical employment as a tree is from a frog.

Genuine Communication and the Role of Negativity in Relationships

While I have moved away from calling myself things like a “Modern Gender Traditionalist” over that last year, I still participate in what is arguably a traditional marriage relationship and a traditionally female role in life. Unfortunately, it’s been a while since I wrote on anything related to the Traditionalism I originally built this blog around- and for that I apologize. Things haven’t been easy over the last year, but I’m hoping to get back into the swing of things soon… Starting with talking about something that bothers me quite often concerning some (unfortunately) fairly common relationship advice.

I’ve touched on it before briefly, but after reading a different article today I’ve decided to remove its mentions from the original posts, and talk about it in a post of its own; it’s an important topic that I feel needs to be addressed a bit more in depth than in passing mention.

Gendered Personalities: Femininity is not Weakness

I trawl through various Feminine tags quite often- whether it’s Femininity, Feminism, Gender Traditionalism, or any related tag that will deliver the content that I crave. During one such trawl today, however, I stumbled across two articles with a similar theme to them: That Femininity is weakness.

Choosing My Lipsticks

Some of the most visible makeup trends in history usually involve lipstick; whether it’s the small heart shaped lipstick stencil of the 20’s, or the raging Red lipstick of the 50’s, it’s often the lipsticks that are the most memorable and become the icon of an era in many cases… And I can see why. I fully believe that a Lipstick can make or break a look- more so than any other element of makeup. Because of that, I tend to choose my lipsticks very carefully.

My Experience with The Refine Challenge

It’s no secret that I signed up for several Challenges this year- one of which was the Refine Challenge, which was supposed to span the month of January. When I signed up, I was so excited because I haven’t found a challenge quite like it. But today an email came into my inbox announcing that the Refine Challenge would be taking a hiatus, and my first reaction- in all honesty- was to be relieved.

3 (More) Keys to Success; Doing it all and Looking Good Doing It

When people say that the image of the perfect Housewife is unobtainable, their primary focus is almost always on the expectation that we look good doing it all. Continue reading “3 (More) Keys to Success; Doing it all and Looking Good Doing It”

Setting the Record Straight on Egalitarian Marriage

Over the last few years I have stumbled across a number of articles from Traditionalists talking about “Egalitarian Marriage”. The most recent one I have encountered discussed a study done in the Netherlands which claims to have proven that Egalitarian Marriage leads to a higher rate of divorce and low marital happiness overall. There does, however, seem to be a unifying trend among these articles… And that is that their authors seem to actually have little idea of what legitimately constitutes an Egalitarian Marriage.
