Why Style and Etiquette is Right for You

Why Style and Etiquette is Right for You
True etiquette can be defined in a variety of ways. Three definitions are here:

Via Google: The customary code of polite behavior in society or among members of a particular profession or group.
Via Webster: the rules indicating the proper and polite way to behave
Vocabulary.com states: If you practice proper etiquette, you are less likely to offend or annoy people — and you may even charm them.

This site serves to combine proper etiquette with personal style. The idea is to assist readers by putting them at ease when in situations which may be new to them or where they might feel uncomfortable. When an unfamiliar occasion arises, this style and etiquette site serves as an answer to tons and tons of questions.

Etiquette isn't meant to be stuffy. Nor does it allow anyone to be a snob with the pretense of "following etiquette protocol." The opposite is actually true. Etiquette style reflects a happy soul, a graceful and considerate well-being for everyone else, before oneself.

As Helen Keller once said:
"Happiness cannot be found without. It must be found within. It is not what people do for us which make us happy. It is what we think and feel and do first for the other person and then for ourselves."

Etiquette is the epitomy of happiness. It's putting someone else at ease by doing what is expected of you. As an etiquette writer and teacher, who assists in making uncomfortable situations more comfortable, I hope you will refer to my site again and again when life's questions arise.
