Do you ever find yourself looking back to an era, be it the 1920s,
40s, 50s and thinking.... I wish I'd of been around then?....
Most probably you answered yes. Me too!
However after stumbling over a 1950s woman's own mag I did
Realise it is all the best bits we choose to see... Now that is no bad
Thing. But I for one cannot ever see myself having the following
Conversation in this advert below. And I really can't imagine anyone
Else looking up from their phones to even make eye contact with,
Now that's when it does make me a little sad!
It's not hard to see why emotions are so mixed when it comes to
Looking in to the past. I envy how people actually wanted to communicate
With each other by, SHOCK.... face to face conversation! Damn technology...
But then I don't envy these women on a wash day with their mangles, spinners
And twin tubs... I'd be lost withought my 8kg all singing dancing washing machine
And tumble dryer... Hmmm Love technology.
The women were so glamorous! They really made an effort and I
Love that! Along with making a frock, having a gleaming home, being
A wonderful hostess, these were the original wonder women!
My god do they make some of us feel inadequate... Yet what we have
To remember is that, that was their career! And it is IMPOSSIBLE to
Have a full time high flying job whilst looking after your children, cleaning
Your own home all whilst looking a million dollars and not forgetting...
Knocking up that quick party frock... I mean, please....
It's simple! Take the bits you love! If you love the glamour, put on a frock
And some lippy! Make an hour for me time.. Bake a cake.
If your feeling uninspired in you home, buy some flowers to brighten it up,
This will probably give you the motivation to start making it more pretty!
Love your usefull technology.. Your rapid boil kettle, your dishwasher...
Switch off your phone and designate a couple of hours a night to turn off
Twitter, Facebook, emails...... Then you really feel like you are in an old school
