Happy New Moon and International Goddess Day!

Happy New Moon in Taurus and International Goddess Day! For those of you from all over the world who are reading my post, please send love, healing, and light to all those wonderful and amazing goddesses in your life. Celebrate their strength, their spirits, and their hearts! Join me in welcoming the arrival of Spring, my favorite season. This is the season of rebirth and transformation. Let us all sing as if no one is listening and dance as if the whole world is watching us. I am so excited to embark on a new chapter of my life starting today, the chapter that was written for me many lifetimes ago. And tomorrow, I will not look back at today nor yesterday. My life moving forward will be a life full of hope, a life of truth, a life of charity and devotion, and most importantly, a life filled with only and simply love! I will face the world with boldness, without fear, without darkness and sadness, and with only creative self-expression that feeds my soul purpose and turn my dreams into reality. I am grateful to God, the Angels, and the Universe for being my teachers, my spirit guides, and my inner life force during this journey into enlightenment and becoming an awakened being. I feel very blessed.

Still Mad About Men?

Now that Mad Men is ending and I know some of you fans out there are very sad, but I thought you would appreciate the looks in this post. They are a mixture of vintage dresses that we found at our local Washington DC Goodwill store and our goddess version of Mad Men inspiration. Have you put away your Winter clothes yet? For the things that you do not want to keep any longer, why not drop it off at your local Goodwill donation center and while you are there, browse through the racks and see what fun Vintage pieces you can find. And if you want looks that are more feminine, more sensual, more timeless, then you must visit our goddess sanctuary or shop online. Have fun with your Madmenalaria and make sure to share your photos on our fan page or email me.

Another great look from our Italian Collection.

Polish Your Space With Goodwill Treasures

Part of my life’s mission is not only to bring beauty, sensuality, love, and inspiration from around the world to those around me, but at the same time to be socially responsible while doing so.  One of the ways I give back to the community is by furnishing and decorating our goddess sanctuary with used furniture from Goodwill of Greater Washington.  Goodwill has been a part of my life since I was a teenager. Those were the days when my family did not have much money and resources and we had to be creative with what we had around us.

Now many of you will not necessarily consider a resale store as your first stop for furniture to decorate your home or work space, especially for a high-end boutique like ours. My team and I did a little polishing and a little refining on the pieces we found at the local Goodwill retail location in Annandale. Since opening, we have had so many compliments on the decor of our space and many actually asked about the pieces. They were shocked when we told them Goodwill was the source, especially the black vintage leather chair that we painted the trim white.  We nicknamed that chair “THE THRONE” since many of our male shoppers said they feel like a king sitting in that chair.

It is very important for me that I am always contributing back to society and inspiring those around me. That is what Polished by tu-anh is about.

The pieces were in relatively good condition. They just needed the tu-anh touch to come to life and harmonize with the feminine, luxurious and sensual essence of our goddess sanctuary.

Come see these pieces for yourself at 113 South Washington Street in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia. We are there Tuesdays through Saturdays from 11:00am-7:00pm. Perhaps later this year, we may sell these pieces and go back to Goodwill for more pieces to polish and refine 🙂
