My thoughts for the weekend, we must indeed not take life for granted. "Life is not a dress rehearsal" you only get one shot, this is the main event.
It is important to choose wisely how we wish to live our lives.
Identify some principles that will help you live each day to the fullest. Being kind, being respectful, having a positive mindset, being present, listening, taking action and
most importantly, being yourself are some important principles to live by.
If you are dissatisfied with certain circumstances in your life, change it or work towards changing it. Determine what success is for you and work towards it.
After all, you are the author of your own story, time to take centre stage

I am genuinely thankful to Laura for delivering the etiquette training to my 16 year old niece at very short notice.
Sabrina came to visit me from Jamaica and I felt she needed to work on her body language among other areas.
She is an extremely shy and introverted girl and I wanted to provide her some tools to prepare her for life after high school.
I contacted Laura and after hearing my request, immediately arranged a discounted 1-1 training session.
I am pleased to say, my niece left that training feeling more confident and in control of her life.
I observed her greet complete strangers with shaking of the hand 😳 and her body language well, more positive. I’m impressed with Laura’s training and her passion to prepare the younger generation for a successful future.
I wholeheartedly recommend her for similar training. It works!

Is this you as a parent?
Quite often I observe parents in public or on public transport, some are quite oblivious to their Children's behaviour because they are so focused on their phone or tablet. Children have told me their parents are always on the phone.
We expect Children to listen to adults and pay attention when talking to them but don't necessarily give them the same in return.
They can only learn good manners by seeing good examples.
As adults, let's teach our Children that they don't have to shout or behave negatively in order to get our attention. Observed behaviour and actions far outweigh anything you could say to them.
Please pay attention to how much time you spend on your digital devices.

As I look ahead to a new year,
I would like to say thank you to all who have supported Polished Manners this year.
I am grateful to you all, family, friends, associates and social media friends. Those who offered support, encouragement, training and advice at various times.
You have all made a difference without even realising it. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

Thank you Laura! You are an inspiration to SO many! Wishing you much happiness and prosperity in the New Year!
I was recently asked how long a drinks party should last for and what the ideal time should be.
A drinks party should last for no longer than three hours.
It should be held in the evening, anytime from 6.00 p.m.is fine.
If the invitation says it's a cocktail party, then expect to be served cocktails or mocktails, for those who don't consume alcohol.
Canapés should be provided in bite sizes, ideally to be eaten in one mouthful.
As host, do ensure a nice presentation and only serving one type of canapé per serving plate.
Do provide some bowls or trays for guests so they can dispose cocktail sticks and skewers safely.
If you do have staff to serve, it is best for them to wait until the canapé is consumed so they can collect any items for disposal.
