You are wearing the clothes that compliment your silhouette, in colours that make the most of your rosy complexion. Your hair and makeup make you look ravissante.
Do you think that is it?
Well, an important part of being chic and elegant is to have good manners. Et oui!A simple hello and goodbye, a lovely smile mean so much more than just a blank face and rudeness. Rudeness is not chic nor elegant. Elegance means that you know how to behave in a correct manner. Who cares if you do not know that person , or if they do not respond to your greeting?
No doubt that you have been brought up to say these basic words from a young age: Hello, goodbye, thank you. So let’s not forget them as we grow up and get older.
A smile costs nothing, yet means so much to the person who receives it. Most people will return this smile to you and might feel a little better about their day. You never know what predicament or problems they might be facing. Why not spread a little bit of happiness and kindness around?
Hellos and goodbyes are right up there with important things with living in society. How can you go about your business while not acknowledging your fellow man (or woman), your co-worker, the person you sit next to on the bus or train?
No man is an island and one day, you might wish to be on the receiving end of a cheerful hello and a smile.
So why not try it now?
Widen the corners of your mouth into a smile.
A bit more.
Come on, don’t be shy, show us your teeth.
You’ve done it!
Why not give something for free today: give us a smile!
