Mirror, mirror

A whole new year, a whole new decade. A change to reflect, anew. We like to put importance on certain numbers, days, milestones. The beginning of a year holds the same promise each time – a clear slate, a fresh start. We look back on what has passed. We hope for what lies ahead. And we reflect on what we want, what we really want. Today, I want to look at beautiful women looking at themselves. What? You reflect your way, I’ll reflect mine. Why hello, 2010. My, you look pretty.

I'm now incapable of doing anything productive all day- that's a job well done, Snarker.

My fave Tallulah Bankhead quote: Daddy warned me about men and alcohol, but he never said anything about women and pills.
Gotta love her!

Thank you for this awesome post! Coincides with ABC's recent airing of The Sound of Music around Christmas. Ever since childhood, I enjoyed watching every minute of it. Julie Andrews is gorgeous.

I LOLed at the "cockburn"...

My family changed their name on the boat...thankfully. Otherwise I'd have a similar last name and that would not be very good...heh

chels said...

yes, cockburn has an unfortunate spelling, but it's pronounced "coburn"

Mickey said...

I wonder if "Wilde" is a middle name...because that would be unfortunate.
