What if you lose what makes you feel most feminine?

Today’s article is one I’ve been trying to write for some time, as it comes in response to a question I was sent a while ago from a reader. The question she asked me was “What if you lose what makes you feel most feminine?” I won’t go into the specifics of her situation, but […]

You get out what you put in - Claire Brummell, Feminine 1st

What’s the difference between masculine and feminine presence?

One of the most important things when you’re interacting with people is to be present. Whether it’s at work, with friends, family or your intimate partner, everyone wants you to be present with them. In this world of constant distraction it’s unusual for someone to be completely and totally present without something being able to […]

Masculine or feminine which is more powerful?

Which is more Powerful…Masculine or Feminine?

I think by now we’ve established that when it comes to the masculine and the feminine there is no ‘better’. We all have both masculine and feminine inside us, and most of us tend to have one that feels more natural, more comfortable, more “home” than the other. That doesn’t mean that we don’t or […]

You get out what you put in…

It’s a concept that we’re all familiar with, we’ve heard it a hundred times… …you get out what you put in. We all know it…but do you always remember it? I know that for me, I had an experience last year that took my understanding of it to a whole new level. …not only that, […]

Are your thoughts getting in the way of your feelings?

Are your thoughts getting in the way of your feelings?

As we know from the definition of femininity, our emotions are a crucial aspect of the feminine. Connecting into our emotions, and what we’re feeling helps us to connect into our femininity. The challenge that we have these days is that we spend so much time in our heads, rather than our hearts and our […]

Do you celebrate all the little things?

So this Christmas I got to spend some great time with my family. It’s one of my favourite times of the year, and getting to spend it with the people that I love most is wonderful. One of the best things about this Christmas was getting to spend it with my 18 month old nephew. […]

Does your help sometimes hinder?

Does your ‘ help ’ sometimes actually hinder?

I know what it’s like when you have someone reach out to you to share about a problem or challenge that they’re having. You want to be there for them, you want to be the best friend you can, you want to help them. You know exactly what to do. You listen to their problems. […]

The Feel Good Jar - Claire Brummell, Feminine 1st

My confession about the feel good jar…

This time last year, I shared a video with you about how to feel more feminine in 2013, and in I talked to you about the concept of the feel good jar. The feel good jar is basically a jar which sits somewhere prominent in your home and when something that you’re grateful for, or […]

Needing to call an ambulance because you have intense chest pains and can’t breathe is a pretty scary experience. …even more so when you’ve just sat down to read your 5 year old daughter her bedtime story.

Do you struggle with meditation? Claire Brummell, Feminine 1st

Do you struggle with meditation?

Gasp! I did it. I used the “M” word. It’s a word I’ve been careful to avoid since launching Feminine 1st two years ago…because it’s a word that can really alienate people. “Meditation” When you use the “M” word, it can provoke a really strong reaction. Some people think that it’s “woo woo” and not […]

A different way to review the year…

At the end of one year and the beginning of the next we tend to look back and review the year that has passed. The funny thing about doing this is that this can both work for us and against us. Sometimes it can lift our spirits. More often than not it can lead us […]

The Feminine Way to Enjoy Christmas…

Christmas is one of my favourite times of the year. The lights are sparkling, the tree is up…it can be truly magical. As feminine women it can be a great time of year…we can indulge the playful, childlike side of the feminine, we can connect with people who we maybe don’t see as often throughout […]

How to avoid the annual break-up season

Would you like to know how to avoid the annual break-up season?

The festive season can be wonderful. …it can also be a really challenging time of year. Family commitments, present-buying, Christmas parties, money-worries, end of year deadlines… It’s a recipe for a stress-cocktail. It’s no surprise that according to Facebook, December is the month of the year with the highest number of breakups. The problem with […]

Today’s Fabulous Friday Female is the little girl called Faith

One of the biggest challenges in relationships these days is the fact the people don’t tend to be very good at taking personal responsibility. We’re too quick to point the finger at other people, and look for where it ISN’t our fault…rather than how we can own our part in it. So when I heard […]

It's not just about increasing your feminine, Claire Brummell, Feminine 1st

It’s not just about increasing our feminine…

If you’re someone like me who spent a lot of your life in a very masculine state (possibly without ever knowing it), when you first find out more about the masculine / feminine dynamic it is usual to focus on how you can increase your connection to your femininity. Over the last few weeks we’ve […]

mens womens brains

It’s official – Men’s and women’s brains are physically different. So how does this affect our relationships?

At a gut level we’ve always known that men and women are fundamentally different. We didn’t need a research paper to tell us that men and women have very different approaches, motivations, thought processes and emotional responses to life…just listen to any couple arguing and the differences are apparent. But nevertheless the research released this […]

Today’s article is a real edge for me. I’m not someone who tends to shy away from controversy, or is afraid to share things that might make people a little uncomfortable. But there is one word, one subject that I find really challenging. Rape. As a woman, just typing that word brings up a physical […]
