brown*paper*parcels ~ memories are made of this
when I was a teenager, Dolly (the magazine) was first published. There was an article on 'grandmas beauty tips'. Of course being the vintage girl that I was/am I grabbed it ..and tried a couple.
The first was to use an egg in your hair to make it shine . I whipped the egg up, washed my hair and massaged the egg mix through. However I mustn't have rinsed it out properly and all that day, I could smell rotten egg !!
another one was to use a blackened match for mascara. Oh this is great I thought.... so I lit a match blew it out ( we dont want to set our lashes on fire now, do we? ) and put it to my eyelashes.. of course it was still hot and my eyelashes sizzled... not a good sight . how funny though !!!!
