This Is My Grandma Trudi
This was my Grandma Trudi, and March 6th was her birthday. She was and still continues to be, such an inspiration to me. Always a lady, never leaving the house without wearing her fuschia- pink lipstick and painted fingernails (her hands were long and beautiful like Diana Vreeland’s).
As a young girl, I would sit at her bathroom vanity and gaze at all her perfume bottles that were so elegantly placed on the lacy-gold edged and mirrored tray. Once emptied, she would send the perfume bottles home with me to play with.
She worked at I.Magnins and as you might imagine, was always well-dressed. She was magnetic and adored. Despite living in Palm Springs and sporting a sunny glow, she always took really good care of her skin. Trudi inspired me to do the same and in many ways was the influence for enmarie. Sending her prayers, love and gratitude for instilling in me the importance of self-care, and always putting your best foot forward. Happy Birthday Grandma Trudi!
I hope you will all take some time for a little skin-care and self-care today.
