This Week on Instagram No. 2

This week on Instagram. . .

We were lucky enough to have a long-weekend in Australia this week!  This proved a perfect opportunity to take a relaxing stroll along the beach and enjoy the simple pleasures of an extra day on the weekend!

This week’s flashback took us to the beautiful state of Tasmania, situated in South-East Australia and separated by the Bass Straight.  We holidayed there a few weeks ago and found it so relaxing and it was such a delight to take in all the amazing natural beauty Tasmania offers.  From the gorgeous harbors dotted with boats of every kind to the winding roads along the coastline where the bushland meets the sea – breathtaking!

Wishing all my readers an extra-lovely week ahead!

Sneezing Tip

Here is a simple and quiet method to prevent sneezing. There are several methods; but I’ve found this one to work the best.

When you feel a sneeze coming on, gently tickle the roof of your mouth with the tip of your tongue. Continue this until the urge to sneeze dissapates. (5-10 sec.)

 

Updates & News

(Crown Prince Frederick & Crown Princess Mary of Denmark pose for an official photograph with their son, Prince Christian)

 

The Danish Royal Watchers has officially given the approval for Grace & Poise to post their photos. As I mentioned in my first post, that I would be using some photos to explicate any moves in the articles.
Crown Princess Mary of Denmark proves to be an excellent model, to show feminine deportment. I would sincerely like to thank gigi and lotte, the contributors of the Danish Royal Watchers, for their kindness in allowing me to use their photographs.
So as I continue to post etiquette articles, I hope that these photographs will be able to explain the articles more practically.
