tu-anh Boutique in Old Town Alexandria Now by Appointment Only

Will Be Open to the Public on the New Moon of Each Month

ALEXANDRIA, VA (October 11, 2016) – As of today, tu-anh Boutique, A Sanctuary for the Modern Day Goddess, will no longer be open to the public for walk-in shopping and consultation. The boutique will return to its original business model of offering Polished by tu-anh Fashion, Beauty, Image Consultation, and Executive Lifestyle Advisory and Design services as well as special events hosting. Moving forward, private shopping, style and beauty consultation will be available exclusively by appointment only and via referrals and introductions. tu-anh boutique will open its door to the public for walk-in shopping from Noon-6pm once a month on the new moon starting on October 30th.

“In order for my private clients to receive the full goddess or titan experience at my sanctuary, I must be able to give them my undivided attention without any interruptions,” says tu-anh.

“With the new, by-appointment-only structure, my team of goddesses and I are available to assist those clients who are fully committed to improving and refining themselves – inside and out – in order to live the life of their desires. Ultimately, these wonderful clients will inspire the world around them to do just the same and, as a result, I believe they will greatly contribute to society and improve humanity. When one is happy with themselves, the energy around them changes and everyone around them will be happy as well.” tu-anh continued.

In addition to private consulting services, tu-anh Boutique will continue to hold exclusive special events, creative workshops and lifestyle seminars, as well as soon-to-be launched “Awaken and Rejuvenate Your Inner Goddess” retreats in Mexico, Greece, and Dominican Republic.

Allow Your Heart to Grow, Virgos!

Virgos love animals and nature.

Virgos love animals and nature.

Happy belated birthday, Virgos! If you are like me and into Astrology and the Zodiac signs, then you know there is definitely some truth to that! My post today is about Virgos, both titans and goddesses. There are several reasons why I am inspired to write this post; the most important reason is for the many Virgos clients that we attract to our goddess sanctuary.

Here is a quick education about Virgos based on my personal experience with both the goddesses and titans I work with and that are in my life.

Virgo is an earth sign born between August 23 and September 22. They are generally very compatible with other Earth signs like my Taurus self and Capricorns. The water signs of Pisces and Cancers are compatible with Virgos.

Most of the Virgos in my life are very intelligent, very analytical, very organized, very detail-oriented, very practical, very efficient, very loyal, very reliable, and very hardworking. They are also sensitive, caring, kind, honest at heart, polished in mannerism, and generous. Like me, they like to take good care of their health and appearance, as well as express their love for all living things (like my Nini Love), the elderly, and the unfortunate.

All the traits above have earned Virgos respect and admiration in their careers and with their friends and family. However, when it comes to their love life, that area requires some attention and effort.

Virgos are perfectionists and are very critical of themselves and of others. It is not so easy to please them or seduce them when it comes to love. They are conservative, private, and shy with their emotions, which can make them come across as uncaring, unemotional, cold, dismissive, stand-offish, and not capable of being passionate. It takes a long time for a Virgo to trust you. They will observe you carefully and take the time to get to know you before they let you into their world. Sometimes, they don’t let you in at all!

Because of their need for structure, routine and being in control of everything, Virgos rarely let go and let loose to just live life in the moment. Their mind is always actively analyzing or thinking about improving or fixing something. This can come across as boring and predictable for those carefree, creative, and spontaneous potential romantic partners.

It seems most Virgos I know are attracted to drama because they like to solve problems and have the desire to rescue a person or situation. For this reason, if they are not self aware, they will attract romantic partners that are less than their equal, need rescuing, or some fine-tuning. Perhaps deep down inside, they are insecure and want a partner who needs them so that they can feel more confident and in control? Or it could be that they do not love and value themselves enough to know their worth and that they deserve better? This, I do not know, and maybe I never will since Virgos do not always express their inner truth and real emotions.

In my opinion, Virgos are very gentle, insightful, sensual, and passionate; rich in emotions; highly sensitive; and full of love and kindness to give to others. The biggest lesson in romance that they must learn is to simply trust and follow their hearts and not allow their over-analytical heads to take over. Most importantly, they must love themselves and know that they are worthy of a wonderful and loving partner who is their balanced equal and opposite complement. They must learn not to settle for good enough, but to only settle for great enough! There is a difference between needs and desires. When Virgos can get in touch with their higher self, they will choose partners that desire them instead of partners who need them.

If you are in a relationship with a Virgo currently or are interested in dating a Virgo, this is a good link to learn more about them:

I hope my dear Virgo readers do not take this post too personally. This is 100% based on my personal experiences and interactions with the ones in my life that I so admire and respect.  I love them all! I am surrounded by them in my life! The message I am trying to share here is for Virgos to allow some space for their heart to grow and explore the journey of love.

Are you a Virgo? I would love to hear you share your thoughts. Until next time.

This is how I feel about Virgos!

Here’s to you, my wonderful Virgos!

Journal Writing is My Medicine


I apologize if my recent post seemed dark, moody, and somewhat emotional. I am in a much better place now. So with the Full Moon in September finishing up, I want to open you up to another powerful way to connect with your higher self: journal writing. It is a holistic approach to traditional therapy, and it really helps you to practice your communication skills, open up your Throat Chakra, and manage depression. Well, at least for me, it does!  When you are able to put your thoughts and desires into words, a lot of miracles and magic will start to manifest in your life.  Journal writing is an incredible holistic way to help you through sadness, guide you through life, and also help manifest your thoughts and desires into reality while being a very meditative and healing activity.

I believe that my very first journal was at age 6 in Vietnam, but of course through all the moving from one place to the next and hiding from the Communists, my journals got lost along the way. So I started again at age 11 here in the United States, but again, because of all the moves, once again, I lost all those journals. Now in my forties and in a much more grounded space in life, I love writing in my journals daily.  It is my way of connecting with my higher self, with God, with the angels, and with the universal energy. It is also my therapy to alleviate any anxiety or depression in my life, which I once a month go through for a few days.  For me, aromatherapy, nature walks with my Nini Love, spending time with my adorable darling nieces,  and writing in my journal are the best forms of medicine. This is why I am rarely under the weather.

As you will see below there is no end to what you can journal about to feel more in tune with your higher self. Not sure where to start or what to write? There is no right or wrong: simply take a few minutes daily with a nice pen and write anything that comes to mind. Don’t over think it. Just start from the bottom of your heart and get in tune with how you feel and then the words will write themselves onto your journal. Why not begin with gratitude? List the things you are grateful for in your life and the rest will flow with ease!  This is also a way for you to get to know yourself and bring you closer to your heart’s desires and manifest your dreams.

We always keep a full stock of inspiring journals in my our goddess sanctuary and lifestyle boutique – see some of my favorites below. And please keep the sharing emails coming. I really appreciate all of that.


I love motivational words!


Great reminder to love yourself!


This is a much more free-flowing format! Write to your heart’s content and be ready for inspiration at the turn of each page.


This is a fun journal full of prompts for both writing and drawing to express yourself! I just opened it up at random to the most beautiful quote that encapsulates my idea of journaling to connect with the universe, “the secret of all is to write in the gush, the throb, the flood, of the moment- to put things down without deliberation- without worrying about their style- without waiting for a fit time or place.” -Walt Whitman
