.thelittlepip. second birthday giveaway (Friday edition)
September 27, 2013
To round off this week, I have a very exciting giveaway. this one isn’t for the babies and it’s open to anyone to enter, regardless of whether they are a mum. that said, I think this is a lovely treat for a mum, when often a lot of the spare budget goes on nice things for the children.
Elizabeth Arden was set up over 100 years ago and the ‘red door’ references the red door of the beauty salon which she opened in New York in 1910. I have written before how one of the things about motherhood which I like so much is it ties me to the previous and next generation and I have also written about enjoying fashion and history and brands with heritage, which is why I thought Elizabeth Arden was a good fit. The Eight Hour cream was first sold in 1930. I rather enjoy the fact that I (and we) are still wearing and using products which were born in what feels like a more glamorous era.
Elizabeth Arden Green Tea perfume was the first perfume that I ever chose myself, and one which I wore consistently up until I got married. The smell defined my late teens, university and early twenties, and even now, even the slightest smell of it takes me straight back to those (rose tinted) care free days!
So, in order to enter the competition, I’d like to hear your Elizabeth Arden stories, or memories. Maybe you use their products, or your mother does, or you can tell me something interesting about the brand’s history, or a quote from Arden herself that you find interesting or inspiring. I like “It is remarkable what a woman can accomplish with just a little ambition”.
