Quaintrelle is “A woman who emphasizes a life of passion expressed through personal style, leisurely pastimes, charm, and cultivation of life’s pleasures”

This has been one of my favourite words for the last two years. Isn’t it absolutely pretty? The sound of it, the way it rolls off my tongue and exquisite feminine feeling of it is delightful. It talks of a delicate strength, of a woman who knows exactly what she wants and the most beautiful way of getting there.

What is your favourite word? Is there any inspiration you draw from it or is the sound of it?

  1. I have a lot of favourite words. I love exotic words, words that sound nothing like the way they are written.
    One of my favourites is “logolepsy”. It means an obsession with words. 😀

  3. It IS a beautiful word and it matches the meaning, don’t you think? Quite charming.
    My favorite English word is lollipop and my favorite French word is parapluie (umbrella) — they’re fun for my mouth 🙂

  4. Oh wow, What a powerful word ! I never knew it even existed before! 🙂
    About your question of our favorite word, It reminded me of this spoken Poetry video I came across a while ago and became my instant favorite, here it is, it’s just as powerful if you wanna see ! 🙂


  5. Discovery -This word encompasses everything I believe life is meant to be. We should not walk through this single trip, without first discovering the hidden secrets -right outside our doors.

    I want to discover each detail of a life that began before me -and will end long after I am gone. If I can even touch another life, and discover their world -a flower will bloom.

  6. Such a cool word Prajakta.

    The word I love the most is a simple word, and I probably use it way too often. It is AMAZING! There should be an exotic word, but I can’t think of one that would fit the role.

    When someone writes a great blog post or runs an incredible race, I would say “You were amazing”. When I see the world around me with all its grandeur, the best I come up with is “absolutely amazing”

    Perhaps I could find a better word but don’t know what to use! 🙂



  7. Ah,this is just lovely. New word for me, and I’m already repeating it and loving the sound of it. 😍 I love this Cosmetic brand called Bourjois. Their cosmetic as well as it’s name is very special for me! 🙂


  8. Charlotte is my favorite word though it’s a name but after reading Jane eyre by Charlotte Bronte. .I love it even more..
