Mad Men Returns Which Means Don Draper Is On The Prowl ...

The Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning drama Mad Men, Season 5, Premiere's this Sun., Mar. 25 at 9pm, ET/PT.   

I love the fact Man Men is vintage 1960's, in the Advertising Industry.  I hate the fact, that the era was so so sexist.... and back then, I had no idea what was going on.


Do you remember, Maybelline's Magic Mascara, with it's totally new Spiral Brush in 1960.




and the bubble hairdo.  That was my life as a teenager. Big rollers, mascara, pale lipstick and looking for the perfect guy to make all my dreams come true!!!

Be sure to watch Mad Men, season 5, on Sunday, and if you haven't been following it,  catch up on all the seasons with Netflix.  It's one of the best shows on TV,  especially if you love vintage.  (And, especially because there are so few quality shows on TV today.)

 According to Maybelline marketing man, Rags Ragland, "A woman's greatest asset is a     
          man's imagination."....."
That sum's up, early 1960s advertising and a woman's role in a man's world.

Read all about my life in the 1960s and how I was so influenced by Rags Ragland's phrase... Maybelline... and advertising...  Pick up your copy of The Maybelline Story today.  You won't be able to put it down.
