Welcome to Etiquette School
This is not a stuffy place where you need to look a certain way or have oodles of money. Etiquette school here is about refining your life in ways that will make you feel like a better woman, and improve the lives of those around you as well.
You can never be too old or too elegant to learn new ways of having good modern etiquette. It changes throughout the times and if you’re still stuck in the “old ways” then you run the risk of being rude without actually wanting to be rude.
“Good manners will open doors that the best education cannot.”

What are the rules of etiquette?
Honestly, it slowly evolves over time and what was once proper might not be anymore. The lines can be a bit more fuzzy now because some people might be offended with a man opening the car door for their date, while others expect it and enjoy the chilvary.
With this confusion alone it shows that it is more than ever to be accepting and let things roll off your back. Never take things too personal, but also use these moments to show others that etiquette shouldn’t be seen as an insult to their humanity, but something to lift it up.
Simply put, etiquette is a form of respect.
Respect to you and to others around you.
Rules change from place to place, but the main rule that should never be broken is
“do unto others as you would like done to you”
By living to this rule, all the rest will fall into proper place.
