Happy Oscar Weekend everyone! I admit, I don’t get out to the movie theater very often, so when the Academy Awards roll around, I’m lucky if I have seen a few of the contenders. But every year, I’m still parked in front of the television for the big awards ceremony. I can’t resist the outfits, makeup, and hair on display on the red carpet (and maybe I’ll add a few movies to my Must See List).
Our image this week is of my favorite old Hollywood glamour girl, Audrey Hepburn backstage at the 1954 Academy Awards, the year she won Best Actress for Roman Holiday. (And wouldn’t you love to know what exactly is in her little stash of products?)
Onto the Lipstick League!
Question of the Week: – If you weren’t blogging about beauty, what would you be blogging about?
Answer: One reason I love writing for wht is that I’m able to blog about other things I love – food, books, decorating, thrifting, etc. But one topic I would enjoy writing about (that just doesn’t fit in with wht) is elite gymnastics. I spend way too much time online reading gymnastics blogs and watching old meets and routines on YouTube. But IT IS an Olympic year – I just may find a way to share my obsession with you all in a post this summer!
And from around the League this week:
