2012…a year of firsts for you?

I don’t know whether you remember anything about being a baby…I know that I certainly don’t (I have a hard time remembering what I did yesterday!) but I guarantee that your parents do. For the first years of your life I bet that every single thing you did for the first time was acknowledged, celebrated, […]

what did the men have to say

So what did the guys have to say?

So…what did the guys have to say when we asked them about femininity? Well..in true Feminine 1st fashion I shall be enlisting the help of the family fortunes sound effects to assist me in demonstrating the results. So when you see the play arrow after the words “Our survey said…” hit it to see what […]

2011 – Fabulous or a Flop?

So Christmas day has been and gone, and New Year’s is beckoning. At this time of the year I like to take a look back at the past year and appreciate everything that has passed. Now, those of you who know me well know that there are two ways that I could look at the […]

Last Christmas?

I love Christmas time. It’s all about fun, family, friends…a season of magic to warm up the chill of winter outside. It’s a chance to be a big kid (not that I need any excuse!) and indulge in all the things that we spend the rest of the year saying “oh I shouldn’t…” to. It’s […]

A little festive fun…

Top 10 tips for surviving Christmas the feminine way – Part Two

So on Monday we started to look at the 10 top tips for surviving Christmas the feminine way…or as I like to think of it, 10 tips for a fabulously feminine festive season! 🙂 We looked at making time for you, preparing, not trying to do everything, rehydrating and smiling as our starter…and now we’re […]

give a little gift

Give a little gift…

With Christmas fast approaching, thoughts of shopping, wrapping and presents are never far from mind. There’s a frantic scramble in the last few weeks (or in some cases the last few days!) to check the presents which need to be purchased off the list and find something which fits the bill for each person. But […]

Top 10 tips for surviving Christmas the feminine way – Part One

Christmas can be the most magical time of the year. It can also, as we all know, be stressful, overwhelming and something that people absolutely dread. We know that we women have a tendency to take on a little too much and Christmas often throws another dozen balls into our over-capacity juggling act! So the […]

Fake Feminine

So having talked about masculine masks last week, this week we’re looking at the other side of the coin. Because as difficult as a masculine mask is…wearing a feminine one can be even worse… We have all seen women who are quite obviously prioritising their masculine tendencies, but the other extreme are women who put […]

A little fun and inspiration…

I saw this today and thought that it was so cute that I just had to share it with you all. For those of you who haven’t heard of them before, the PS22 Chorus is an elementary school chorus from Public School 22 in Graniteville, Staten Island (New York). It is composed of 60-70 fifth-graders, […]

lets ask the men

Time to ask the boys…

Well it seems that I might have put the cat amongst the pigeons a couple of weeks ago by asking the women what they thought about Femininity but not asking the men… My first thought when the guys pointed this out was that the reason for the first survey was to ensure that the content […]

masculine masks

The reality of masculine masks…

We all know that drag is most commonly associated with describing a man in women’s clothing (before I get corrected here, yes I know that it is used the other way around too! 😉 ), but the real drag is a woman who is feminine on the inside and yet putting on a masculine mask. […]

our survey said

Our survey said…

When I started writing this post, I was wishing that there was a way that I could add sound effects easily into my blog so they played when the reader gets to the relevant part of the text. Ever since I began talking about surveys, I’ve had the family fortunes style “Ding!” and “Uh Ergh!” […]

The attitude of Gratitude

The Attitude of Gratitude

As last week saw the arrival of the US holiday season with the turkey-fest that is thanksgiving, it seemed only appropriate that this week I should focus on gratitude. Now, I might be a Brit, but I have to say that the idea of a day which is all about giving thanks for everything that […]

Battling the effects of cancer on femininity…

Hey ladies, I wanted to share a link with you – http://clicky.me/6kmV – I saw it a couple of weeks ago and thought it was absolutely fantastic.  The story is about an organisation based initially in the US which has now also extended all over the world called “Look Good, Feel Better” who hold free skincare and make-up […]

Hi Ladies, I just thought I’d post a quick update following Feminine 1st’s appearance at the Styling Stripped Bare’s Christmas Worthshop yesterday. It was a great day, everyone had so much fun and I got some fantastic feedback and testimonials from the lovely ladies who were there. As a sneak peek, I thought I’d share […]

The $64,000 Question…What IS Femininity?

So…the question that everyone keeps asking me…what IS femininity? Well, let’s start with what it isn’t. There are so many mis-perceptions about what the word femininity actually means, and I think it’s important that we address these up front…

Exciting News…

Well I promised you a piece of exciting news yesterday, and in order to make up for the news coming a little late I have not one, but TWO pieces for you! Feminine 1st is appearing LIVE at not one, but TWO fabulous events in the next three weeks…you heard it here first! I will […]
