Links to Love! Beauty and The Beast Edition

By: Maralee McKee, Manners Mentor

A weekly curation of links I love and thought you might, too!

I’m excited to see the new Beauty and The Beast movie which opened nationwide in the U.S. yesterday. I remember loving the animated version and singing along with Celine Dion’s title track. This live-action edition seems like it’s going to be lavish, lush, and great fun! I hope it leaves us singing a new song!

  • If you haven’t seen the official movie trailer yet, or if you have and want to savor it again, it’s right here for you. Enjoy!

 

 

 

  • If you’ve eaten at a Chick-fil-A, have you noticed that their associates often have the best manners and give the highest level of customer care of any quick-service restaurant? One customer noticed and appreciated the kind manners of the young man serving him at Chick-fil-A so much that he blessed the young man’s entire family by building them a new home! It’s an amazing story of generosity and caring!!! (I’m proud to say I was hired to consult on the writing of their restaurant staff’s customer-care “Second Mile Service” program and conducted over a dozen professional etiquette seminars for executives at their home office in Atlanta. They place a high regard on politeness!)

 

  • The most valuable lesson at this school happens at lunch. A student started a “No One Eats Alone Club,” and students who once felt outcast because they had few or no friends, or who are new to the school and struggling to find their place, no longer dread lunchtime. The teens are learning to make friends with one another! I hope this club spreads to every school in the nation! Why not share this news story with your children’s school principal and see whether their school can be next?!

 

Did You See These On the Blog?

I hope you enjoy a lovely weekend!

About Maralee McKee

Maralee McKee is the founder of Manners Mentor. With her best-friend style, sense of humor, and knack for updating etiquette to meet our modern sensibilities, she has been referred to as "Sandra Bullock meets Emily Post!" Maralee shows you how to become the best version of yourself. No fluff. No pretense. Just you at your authentic best! The person you were always meant to be! Maralee is a native and life-long resident of Orlando. Before entering the etiquette arena, she worked in management and ministry. She's proud to be Kent's wife and Marc and Corbet's mom. She hates laundry, and loves quality tea, London, and Savannah, Southern cooking, dressing up and dressing down, and Miss Lilly the Wonder Sheltie. You can find her picture if you scroll to the footer of this page. Isn't she the cutest dog ever?!!! PS: Because everyone always asks her, "What's your etiquette pet peeve?" It's people who talk on their phones in public restrooms. The person on the other end of the phone must wonder, "What's that noise. It sounds like....no, it couldn't be." Plus, everyone else in the bathroom is held hostage to a one-sided conversation usually shouted to try and cover up the noises. It would be comical if it weren't so...so....just plain wrong on many levels. ;)
