My Beautiful Bubbie is a Force of Nature, As You Can See in This Vintage Photograph
My 101-year old grandmother, known to all as “Bubbie,” is truly a force of nature. For as long as I can remember, my grandmother has always looked like she stepped out of the pages of a magazine.
Although her perfect beehive hairdo has been her defining physical characteristic, when I think of my Bubbie I think of her applying and reapplying her lipstick after every meal.
People always stop my Bubbie to tell her how amazingly beautiful she looks, wanting to know her secret to looking so young. I always chuckle as I anticipate her famous response, “I owe it all to my good friend Estee.” (As in, Estee Lauder!)
While my grandmother never had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Lauder, she is surely her most faithful customer, as she has been using her products for a lifetime.
My Bubbie’s humor, wit and ability to always look her best, even at 101 years old, inspires me every day. ~shared by @docyourstory
