Bewitching Languor

Fascinating Womanhood coverFascinating Womanhood
Andelin
1974

Are you unhappy in your marriage? Perhaps it is because you haven’t seen it through the eyes of your man. Become a fascinating woman by putting your man’s needs first.  By paying attention and reacting properly to your husband, you can become a fascinating woman and exude femininity. Essentially, this is all about shutting up and letting the man be a man. (Cuz, they can’t if you are too busy harping on them.)

We first posted this back on ALB a long time ago. I came across it in our donation pile and felt we needed a re-do.  Since it was a while back,  I think there are enough of you ladies out there that need a refresher on your lady skills. You can read the original post here.

I’ll be in the back working on my “bewitching languor”.

Advice from Zsa Zsa

Zsa Zsa Gabor - cover

How to Catch a Man
How to Keep a Man
How to Get Rid of a Man
Gabor
1970

Youngsters, you probably don’t remember the Gabor sisters. They were kind of like proto-Kardashians. Zsa Zsa and her sister Eva were Hollywood glitterati from the old days. Both sisters racked up quite a few husbands and had minor acting credits. (Eva, probably the best known from the show Green Acres, and both showed up on the old Hollywood Squares occasionally.) Zsa Zsa gives all her womanly advice in this rather uninteresting book of quotes. I get the feeling this was more publicity stunt than actual book. She even states on the inside flap that the advice is “inconsistent” and “not logical.” No argument here.

Excuse me while I retrieve my feather boa from the dry cleaner.
