I collect and cherish weird, old beauty advice. A few years ago, I compiled some of my favorite tips and excerpts into a book. Then I went on to other things. But I miss writing about that stuff so now I am going to do that here.

I am nostalgic for the time when beauty routines and rituals were to be practiced and cultivated, not simply purchased.

There is just so much thoroughly-advertised, sparkly plastic crap around these days. I do love beauty products, but I am more interested in self-possessed glamour.
