A fashion, beauty or life tip.
One of the first things I learned from my mom at the sweet age of 15 was that when it came to make-up, less is more. She taught us to use as little make-up as we needed. She told me my face did not need foundation as I had no flaws to hide. A touch of lipstick, a swipe of mascara, and that is all that a young girl needs. I wish more mother's were telling their girls this today. I cannot believe how many young girls are wearing full face make-up. With way too much eye shadow and eyeliner.
My mom also was a believer in taking off your bra unless you were going somewhere. Otherwise, let those girls be free. I have few memories of my mom wearing a bra. Unless she was dressing up for something. Isn't that crazy. I hardly ever go without a bra. Almost always have a sports bra on. I think that goes to my days of being a day sleeper (because I worked the night shift) and you never knew when you'd have to answer the door or go running after a kid somewhere.
Two of my mom's favorite expressions for life were: No way ever promised you a rose Garden. And Life is not Fair. And I can't tell you how many times I have said both of those to my kids and now my grandkids.
