"Vanity for Humanity" is still on! Send photos of your dressing table vanity to Claudia at The Paris Apartment. Her email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. She's writing a book called "Vanity for Humanity" with a look at the blogger’s vanities. All the proceeds will go to Habitat for Humanity so please do send them. Hopefully these glamorous shots of the vanities and movie stars will inspire you to take a few pictures, and to have many beautiful dreams that come true.
This is a wonderful video of about the glamorous movie stars from the Golden Age of Hollywood. There are more lovely vanities in the video too! It has music so you might want to turn off the volume on my player at the bottom of the page while viewing.
The video is from xoxClaudia101xox on You Tube - A young girl who loves the Golden Age of Hollywood.
