How to be a Gentlewoman

Lotte Jeffs
Authors:
Lotte Jeffs

"This is a brilliant & timely exploration of what it means to be a successful female in the 21st century." Elizabeth DayGentlewoman: A woman who blends old-fashioned values such as courtesy, kindness, and generosity, with a thoroughly modern and open-minded attitude; using her self-confidence to show up, not show off and her optimism to inspire others and build a happier life for herself.Women today are under so much pressure to be everything to everyone: to be cool, smart, fit, thin (but not too thin!), funny (but not bitchy!), a supportive friend, partner and family member. We want to be successful and liked at work, to have opinions about politics, art and literature as well as reality TV and Ariana Grande's love life. It's overwhelming.How to be a Gentlewoman presents an antidote to the multi-directional pressures of 21st century life. It cuts through the white noise and offers a compelling strategy for living well and thriving. The book weaves powerful memoir with practical advice (including mastering a power drill and the importance of making your bed every day) and a psychological deep dive into the importance of knowing and liking oneself. This English gentlewoman will teach you that real power comes from within.Rather than 'killing it', 'slaying in your lane', having to be a 'girl boss' or adopting the art of 'not giving a f**k', this book will teach us that gentleness has too long been underestimated. The true antidote to our brutal and aggressive world is to listen closely, be attuned and rediscover our soft power. It's not she who shouts the loudest who gets heard, it's she who understands the most that holds our attention.Contributors include Paris Lees, Clara Amfo, Elizabeth Day, Gina Martin, Olivia Laing, Romy Madley Croft, Brenna Hassett, Ruby Smith-Merovitz, Silvia Bellezza, Heather Habrilesky, Jodie Harsh, Samantha Clark, Nicky Yates, Sarah Ditty and Lorraine Candy.

Carolyn Boyes

By living with intention we are actively shaping our lives, establishing how we wish to invest our energy and time on this Earth. Through the processes of self-enquiry, assessing our values, visioning and mindfulness we can ensure that our beliefs and actions are in alignment, discard those aspects of our lives that no longer serve us and manifest the existence we want.By using easy-to-follow tools, strategies and exercises, leading life coach and speaker, Carolyn Boyes, shows us how, in this fast-paced, demanding world, which is so full of distractions, we can move from living a busy life - one that we endure - to an intentional life - one that we have chosen.
