#47 Grooming...Fifties Style
Taking the Time
I recently watched Roman Holiday and was intrigued to see how Audrey Hepburn brushed her hair at bedtime.
I remember watching my grandmother, "Daw" as she brushed her hair at the dressing table before bed.
Since Daw's bedroom furniture and brush set now sit in my guest room, I decided I would take some time to do a little old fashioned grooming. I filed and buffed my nails and then settled down to brush my hair 100 strokes. It felt odd and silly at first. Daw's brush is soft and it smells old. But it felt nice after a while and it made me slow down and think about how much I miss my grandmother.
I'm not really sure about hair health, but I have a feeling the old hair-brushing routine could lead to more restful sleep! It's at least a lot more calming than checking emails at bedtime!

57 Celebrations of the Fifties!
April 9, 2014
I don't remember the 1950's, since they ended when I was 2. But since I turned 57 today and this is my BYB (Birth Year Birthday) I'm going to just appreciate the flavor of 1957! My goal is to celebrate in at least 57 simple ways throughout the year! I will dabble in the fashion, the foods, the music and the culture of those times...just for the fun of it!
