What’s your signature? Do you sign in cursive or a swirl of scribbles? Signatures are distinctive as the handwriting style is especially telling of a person. It is one of the many reasons we use them to authenticate and verify important documents. Just like with actual signatures, there are lifestyle signatures or signature items that every lady should have.

A signature (item) is as unique and identifiable as a written signature. The signature or signature items that you have should be items that you genuinely love, resonate with, use every day or are self-reflective. They can be as complicated or simple as you like, but as long as they’re yours, people should be able to know that it’s you.

Homemade Meal and Dessert

Every woman should know how to cook at least one meal, even if it is as simple as chicken and broccoli. Have your one meal and master it. Know how to pair with a wine or no-alcoholic beverage. Knowing how to make your own meal encourages mindfulness and adds romantic touches to the mundane activity.

Virtue or Trait.

Sound is interesting because this can be a couple of things being voice, song or music genre. Sound is an integral part of our lives, even if we are only feeling the vibrations from different frequencies. How you speak and what you listen to are a significant part of your person.

Jewelry Piece

Choose your player: ring, earring, bracelet or necklace. Which piece do you enjoy wearing most? Wear your favorite jewelry piece with your favorite gem. I enjoy wearing my birthstone, Diamond, and pearls on a combination of yellow rose gold bands and settings.
