Did you ever meet a word you just loved? I recently discovered this
word - quaintrelle - and simply fell head over heels. 

I saw it first as the title of a blog, and was immediately intrigued. Such a pretty little word, such a lovely blog - each feminine and thoughtful and unique.

A quick search lead me to a few other blogs and to a proper definition: "a woman who emphasizes a life of passion expressed through personal style, leisurely pastimes, charm, and cultivation of life's pleasures."


As someone who deeply enjoys the beauty of the small things in life, I identified with it. And yes, you'll now find it as one of my personal descriptors on my Instagram, Pinterest, and even on my About Me page!

Are you a quaintrelle, too?
