~ About the Authoress ~
My name is Layla Beth, but you can call me Lady Layla. I am *a-hem* “The Bad Girl with Good Manners.” Or at least that’s my Burlesque persona…and well, let’s face it – there’s usually a BIT of truth in these types of personality extensions. But all of that is irrelevant right now…I’m here to talk about those manners…and sometimes Burlesque…and sometimes other random topics that I feel need to be addressed.
This ain’t my first rodeo, nor is it my first blog, so I will try to keep things, um, not boring, how’s that? Informative, humorous and in-your-face, but never, ever boring.
So, a little about me, shall we?
Yes, as a matter of fact, I DID spend hours walking around with a book on my head, because that’s what the television told me to do in order to be all kinds of awesome…
I swiped high heels from my mother’s closet and practiced walking in them, like the sophisticated ladies in all those charming old black and white films…
I was glued to every Miss America broadcast between the years of 1980 and 1999, and even held my own share of titles in the pageant world…
I have owned more than one book about etiquette, and have raised two children to be themselves, colour outside the lines, and HAVE GOOD MANNERS. I deplore bad manners of any kind…from biggies like being bitch-ass rude, to small ones like chewing with your dang ol’ mouth open.
(BTW, I curse a lot. Just FYI.)
It’s a dying art, (Manners – not cursing) friends, so think of me as an ER doc: Etiquette Restoration, that is!
I’m informally trained – no fancy-schmancy certifications. I’m just a girl who values charm and good manners…and a bunch of other really cool stuff.
…oh, and I encourage EVERYONE to NEVER judge a book by it’s cover! 😉
…and when I’m not busy being a self-proclaimed authority on proper behaviour in this modern world, I wear many other hats:
Non-traditional wife. Renegade gypsy mama. Dancer. Reiki healer. Artiste érotique. Advocate. Educator. Part-time vegan. Friend. Daughter. Human. High-maintenance Hippie. Classy nymphomaniac. Collector. Nerd. Free spirit. Writer. Thrift shop fashionista. Flower smeller. Tea drinker. Daydream believer.
Anyone of these personas can – and probably WILL – show up at any given time! 🙂
