Back in October, my friend Sarah launched a series on the “New Woman” of the 1920s. Today she posted another one on how the “New” woman handled make-up…and how she helped to normalize it within society via the magic of sex appeal! πŸ˜‰ It’s a great post. You can check it out here.

My name's Megan. I'm a writer with an interest in history. While I might not be a real historian, I'm a very thorough researcher! :) This blog is my place to post about all the interesting historical tidbits I find that can't use in the novel I'm working on, which takes place in Chicago in 1927.
