Quite Continental Charm School

Great Caesar’s Ghost, it’s January 31!  How on earth did that happen already?  As we get ready to turn the corner on February, you may already know what that means around here – the annual return of Quite Continental Charm School!!

Every year in the month of February, I endeavor bring you a daily tip to generate more class and fabulousness in your everyday life, spanning the topics of fashion, travel, beauty, etiquette, relationships, and whatnot.  Charm School is my modern guide to creating a charmed life, where you learn about things to do, to see, to think about, to taste, to buy, to read, to listen to, and to experience.  And as I definitely don’t claim to have a monopoly on such knowledge, you’ll have a lovely slate of guest instructors, each chosen for their class and fabulousity.

Charm School is my absolute favorite time of year, and I hope you will consider joining us this time around!  For those students who are in need of a bit of a catch-up, you can find the last two years’ lessons below – but don’t you worry, there won’t be any math on this exam.
