U.S. Army Heritage & Education Center

After a much needed a break, I am back and finally out of my "funk". Me and my family took a few day trips, and it was just a lovely, relaxing week. I found a few retro goodies, which I'll share in my next post. However, the highlight of the trip was definitely visiting the U. S. Army Heritage and Education Center. They have a museum, which is currently featuring an exhibit on General Omar Bradley, and an outdoor exhibit called the Army Heritage Trail. The Trail is AMAZING!! You get to walk through the army's major campaigns from The Revolutionary War through the Vietnam War. Of course, the WWII Core Area was my favorite. It was like stepping back in time! But I did enjoy the Vietnam exhibit and WWI trenches. It's very difficult to wrap your mind around how our soldiers lived under those conditions.

Unfortunately, it was almost closing time when we got there, and they had already locked up the church. I will definitely be planning another trip back!

Nothing makes me feel more vintage than lipstick — 40's red or 50's pink. I wish I could pull the red off, but it's not the most flattering color on me. However, Clinique is offering their free bonus gift right now, and in my gift was a full size "All Heart" lipstick. The website says it is in the pink family, but i think it leans towards the red (the color is definitely darker in person than how it appears on the website. I would say it looks more like "Red Red Red" in the tube). It's sheer but gives that pop of color without being harsh. It feels light, not greasy. "All Heart" is going to be hanging out in my purse from now on. ;)

Vintage Deficiency

Sorry for the long gaps between blogs. I've been in a "slump" lately. My days have been much more busy and stressful. So between the lack of time and just being worn out, vintage hasn't been too prominent in my days.

In what simple ways do you incorporate vintage into your everyday life?
