Ladies Like Us, the debut book from The Darling Academy shares honest, modern, fun and gentle guidance on what it really means to be a lady today. From finding your identity as a lady and feeling at home in your skin, to cultivating true grace, quiet self-confidence and how to surround yourself with everyday happiness.

The Darling Academy is a finishing school for any young woman who wishes to:

  • Know how to think and act like a lady in every situation
  • Live free from negative thinking and crippling self-doubt
  • Be graceful and elegant regardless of modern pressures and trends
  • Learn to embrace her feminine energy and still "have it all"
  • Enjoy and nurture herself and her relationships right now
  • Have clear hope for her future and follow her dreams

Since the 1960s, the pop-culture view of the feminine identity has brought about a rapid decline in common courtesy, grace, morality and manners. We have been told to set aside dreams of an old-fashioned romance in favour of discovering our sexuality, despite what our hearts tell us. Because of this, being "ladylike" has fallen aside for the rise of the trendy sell-out sexy celebrity we are encouraged to emulate. This movement has done little to help how young ladies view their identity today. In some modern cultures it is almost shameful to value good morals, manners and even strong values themselves.

Ladies Like Us explores the countenance of natural ladylike femininity available to us all and encourages women of all ages to embrace a life full of grace and elegance using modern etiquette, positive thinking and embracing the joy of all that is "ladylike" in order to create and live a life you love.

Gone are the six inch heels, boob jobs, big gobs and fake beauty and in its place a classy, kind, educated and romantic young woman worthy of catching any prince.

Say yes to the shoes, say yes to the romance and say yes to becoming the lady you dreamed you'd grow up to be. Doors will be opened for you wherever you go.

Welcome to the modern finishing school for ladies, we're glad you're joining us.
