Simply Beautiful Beauty Treatment #6

Peachy-Keen Facial

This is as simple as you can get for a beauty treatment, the astringent sag busting action of the peach juice will freshen and firm your skin.

Take one ripe peach, cut into slices. Take one slice and rub all over your face and let the juice sit on your face for 20 minutes then rise with warm water and pat dry. With the rest of the peach slices sit back and enjoy a healthy snack!

......Peachy, peachy, turtle dove
Teach me, teach me how to love
Tell me that you're glad you found me
Oh, my loveable boy
Meet me, greet me with a kiss
Sweety, treat me to some bliss
Throw your great big arms around me
Till I holler for joy..

From the song "Cuddle Up" by Irving Berlin

Edith Shain, the woman who has claimed to be the nurse being kissed in the famous photo shot in Times Square after the end of WWII passed away today in Los Angeles. Ediths identity of the phototgraph first published in LIFE magazine was not known until the 1970's when Edith contacted the photographer, Alfred Eisenstaedt to inform him that she was the nurse  in the world famous photo taken August 14, 1945.

(Carl Muscarello and Edith Shain stand next to the statue of the photo of them that made history)

From that point on, Shain's life was forever changed as the fame she garnered led to invites to war related events such a wreath layings, parades and other memorial events. To this day, the photo is recognized as a symbol of celebration  that has been used in art, movies and even re-enacted by vintage enthusiasts  in various ways including wedding invitations.

Little did Edith know when she walked out on to that New York street that hot August day that she would be imortalized in history forever; one kiss, one photo, one amazing moment in in history!
