Homemaking for Pleasure | August Teatime

Resim
Welcome to my final video of August... In this season finale, I'm sharing the most pleasurable aspects of homemaking for me: decorating, baking, and teatime.  August We are August in the midst, Ending now our summer tryst. Luscious things dying away, Mounting heat that still persists.   Turn we now to Autumn fare, Flowers in a vase to share. Dreaming of a cooler time, And crisp scents that fill the air.   Though summer’s lease is up soon Seems like we were just in June. Florals that can capture love, Teatime in the afternoon.   August, you were kind to me, Comfort when my heart did plea, Ushering me to the Fall, Like a welcome cup of tea.   -       Jennifer L. Scott We start with a look at the new Cole & Son wallpaper in the dining room. Here is the before... ... and here is the after.   The wallpaper is by Cole & Son. It is the Winter Birds in the shade, Linen. Before I do some flower arranging, I'm going to make my final summer pie for the year: the classic strawbe

Fall Wardrobe Planning | Ten-Item Capsule Wardrobe

Resim
  Welcome back to The Daily Connoisseur. Today I am going through my ten-item capsule wardrobe to see what will stay and what will go for Fall. If you have been following my intermittent fasting story, you know what I've lost some weight in the past year. This has affected my wardrobe as you will see today. I try on several of the garments that I thought I'd be keeping for fall.

8 Ways to Not Overreact and Remain Unbothered | Lessons in Elegance

Resim
  In my last video on being polished and elegant , many of you requested an in-depth discussion on how to not overreact. How do we remain unbothered and keep our cool when we are actually feeling very heated? Elegant people don't blow a gasket when they are angry. I'm sharing 8 ideas in today's video that will help you keep calm and remain classy... no matter what.     1. When you are angry and prone to overreacting… pause. Do nothing and see what happens.  “Practice the pause. Pause before judging. Pause before assuming. Pause before accusing. Pause whenever you're about to react harshly and you'll avoid doing and saying things you'll later regret.” ― Lori Deschene    2. Analyze how you react to situations, because awareness is the first step: Novelist, Ellen Glasgow said, “What happens is not as important as how you react to what happens.”   Become conscious about how you react to situations. Epictetus said, “It’s not what happens to you, but how you
