    Long Hair When You Are Petite – yay or nay?

    Wondering if long hair is suitable for you as a petite? In today’s article, I want to cover an interesting subject that has been on my mind for a very, very long time – having long hair when you are petite. When I was a child and even a teenager, my mother always told me that I look better with short hair because it makes me look taller and this is how most of my life I had short to very short hairstyles. But, at the age of 18, I have decided to let my hair grow, and I have never cut it short since then, even though, I must…

    15+ Things You Don’t Know About Me

    Hello my petites! As I am new to many of you, I feel like sharing some things (funny or not) you surely don’t know about yours truly but will probably help you know me better. I have been wearing glasses since I was 4 years old. You do the math. I love reading.  I can’t imagine life without books. I don’t like the idea of reading e-books, I love to feel the paper and, call me weird, the smell of books. The best relaxation for me is reading on a sunny beach.

I am talking about more serious aspects of a petite’s life. STORY TIME When I was 22 years old I accepted a job as a trainer for an oil and gas company in my hometown where most of the trainees (all of them actually) were 25+ years old (some of them were really my mother’s age). Well, nothing special so far. I was so excited by this job as it was my first one of this kind; until then I had been working…

    Personality Traits of Petite Women

    Hello, my petites. First of all, let me tell you that I’m not a psychologist, a therapist or anything in between, but I love reading a lot about the human behavior and I like “reading” people. I don’t know if there really is something special about petite women, but I have many small-sized girlfriends and all of them share some common personality traits. One of them is their power. Petite women are powerful. Their big personality compensates their short stature. In the past, being tall has been associated with power, intelligence, and strengths, but believing that being tall gives you more power or energy is just an illusion. I have…

    How I Reinvented Myself

    Hello my petites! Let me introduce myself – my name is Andra and I am 30 years old, I was born and raised in Romania, and this is the first article posted on my fresh new blog. I’ve called myself a “blogger” since 2013 when I’ve started my first local blog, but it took me a while to understand that writing on a general blog on various topics was not what I really wanted. It was in 2016 when the idea of creating a blog dedicated to petite women started to flourish into my mind and my soul. The year 2017 marked my first attempt to start a “petite lifestyle”…
