Traveling in Style

Greetings, it has been awhile, and I am back from a much needed Goddess sabbatical. If you live where I live – or have traveled to many major cities – I will bet that you have come across people who you instantly know are tourists, especially the North Americans (*smiles*).  I really never understood the concept of the unattractive hip packs, the over-sized sweatshirts and loose fitting t-shirts, the heavy and bulky looking sneakers, and the funny-shaped baseball caps.  Certainly, there are so many options out there for comfortable and stylish clothing, footwear, and accessories for travel. I am not certain why people on holiday still dress in such odd and unpolished ways.  Perhaps they do not have a clue, or perhaps they are simply following what is portrayed in the films of the tourist characters.

As for myself, when I am traveling, I usually take into account where I will be traveling to: the weather, the culture, the people, and how they express their sense of style. From there, I adjust my individual style to fit in while still keeping it simple, unique, comfortable, and certainly easy to pack and wash by hand.

I hope you like the looks in this post from my recent goddess travels including the Awakened Retreat I hosted in Cabrera, a quiet and pretty town in the Dominican Republic.  I like keeping my inner goddess happy with clothing that feels soft and luxurious against my skin, easy to slip on and off and that allows me to breathe freely. Cotton, silk, rayons, and slinky silky knits are usually my favorites to wear. Most importantly, I never travel without a pair of my oh so comfortable stylish leather sandals handmade in Mykonos.

Think about where your next travels might take you – How will you pack for it?  What will you be wearing? If you need assistance, let me know. My style goddesses and I would find delight in helping you. Many of the clothes and accessories in this post are from my goddess sanctuary, tu-anh Boutique.  If you do not live near Old Town Alexandria, you can always shop online instead.

Let Him Lead The Dance!

How do you spend your Friday nights?  I often spend mine dancing for sure!  Dancing not only makes me feel confident and sexy, it also makes my mind and body feel alive and my root chakra balanced.  As you know, when this chakra is healthy, we feel confident in who we are, stable in life, and powerful in spirit.  Well, at least for me I do!

Dancing is a way for me to express my sensuality and allow my inner divine feminine to come out and play. Partner dancing is my favorite because it is when I can feel safe to let go and just let the titan take charge, which is so refreshing because I am often leading in my life. Besides, if you would like to attract a confident sexy titan who can take the lead when he is called for duty, then you must get in the practice of letting go and just following his lead! And when you dress up and look good, you also will feel good and that will do a lot for your self confidence! Believe me, when you are confident and joyful, that energy is so contagious! You are doing the world good when you have high self esteem!

One extra word of advice to my titans and goddesses: if you would like to improve your relationship in the bedroom, try adding dancing to your workout or as a hobby. Please trust me on this one, why don’t you? (smiles) Hope you like the photos of my dance performances from my recent family reunion party at the Westin Alexandria. Oh and that party was so much fun! More on that in a later post. So I hope you will join me out dancing one Friday night with my goddesses and experience the  Ecstasy for yourself! xoxo… ~tu-anh
