Happy 6th Blogiversary to EauMG!

Madonna and cake

It’s EauMG’s 6th blogiversary (and it’s my birthday!). Things sure can change a lot in six years:

  • I moved across the country.
  • I’ve had more than a few career changes.
  • I went from having 0 pets to now having 2 dogs.
  • I went from having 0 nieces and nephews to having a total of 4 nephews and 1 niece.

“I was the spark that lit up Flaming Youth, Colleen Moore was the torch. What little things we are to have caused all that trouble.” – F. Scott Fitzgerald

Ann-Margret had to play the girl next door and then quickly change into sex kitten. She’s an icon of the 1960’s. Actually one of my favorite “camp” icons because she had to play all of those stereotypical female roles. This pic above was taken in 1967, during her Vegas days. Fun fact – the same hairdresser that made Lucille Ball a redhead made Ann-Margret a redhead too… Continue reading | 6 Comments
