Vintage Advertising - For Teens Only March 1968 - Ads

For the next however long until I forget or run out of vintage magazines, on Mondays I am going to post pictures from vintage magazines.  I am REALLY creative, so I am calling it "Magazine Monday".  Hey if you have a better name, let me know :)
A couple of years ago I ordered some vintage magazines off of ebay.  $2.06 with free shipping is less than I pay for a new magazine at the grocery store (well once a year when I buy one anyway) so it seemed like a good deal.

One of the magazines I got was For Teens Only from March 1968.  This is what it looks like.
What stands out the most to me is the way you can tell all the pictures were literally cut and pasted over the words.  I don't know if you can click and see it bigger, but if you can you should :)

I am pretty sure the ads are my favorite part of the magazine.  I am hoping you can click on them to see them bigger.  They are just so random.  No nail polish, no name brands, just weird little companies with PO Boxes wanting your money for what is probably crap!
Who markets anything having to do with spider veins to teenage girls?
Is that even safe?


Because truth in advertising is over-rated...

Any bets on how awful this looked?









You don't want to be to short (I am pretty sure that girls can just wear heels, but maybe they are supposed to but them for their boyfriends.  Wow, what an ego boost!), to fat, or to skinny. 


And no room is complete without Wide Eyed Dancing Kids

Come back next Monday for more awesome vintage pictures.

Things That Annoy Infertile Girls (or Maybe Just Me?) - Flashback Friday

This was actually one of my more popular posts when it was first published, but I still thought I would share it again.  Any additions to the post are in pink, as usual :)

Accidental Pregnancies - So I have been trying for years to get pregnant, you go slut around and accidentally get pregnant? Immediate Pregnancies - You quit taking your birth control last month and now you are pregnant? People Who Give You Retarded Advice -           - Just stop trying and you will get pregnant
           - My friend adopted a baby and got pregnant right away, you should do that
           - Get drunk, people always get pregnant when they are drunk (Yes, they do. Because they are
             intoxicated and forget to take precautions.)
Whiny Girls That Pretend They Are Infertile - Trying for 5 months is not suffering from infertility. It takes a year on average to get pregnant.  I get that it might FEEL like infertility but it just isn't.  After YEARS of trying, I can't even remember what tr…

Review - Seven Everyday Slings

I got this sling because it was free, I only had to pay shipping.  Since I bought it, I have found out that it is VERY easy to find codes for this to be free, and I am pretty sure that if you ever pay full price for one you got duped.

I was SO excited.  I wanted a baby carrier really bad.  I didn't have a baby, but I am always collecting baby things.

In case you were thinking that I only review things that I like, I HATE THIS SLING! 

I have used it with tiny babies, older babies, and toddlers. 

Pros:
- Adorable, and available in a variety of colors
- Lightweight and compact, you can easily throw it in a diaper bag or purse
- Works from birth - 35 lbs


Cons:
- Terrifying to use with small babies.  They sink down in it, and its almost impossible to keep them from having their chin tucked to their chest, which is a huge no-no in baby carrying.  Basically when I had Cooper in it as an infant I spent the entire trip to the park making sure he was still breathing, then I started sticki…

Is Mother Goose Time Worth The Money?

Last night my husband asked me if I thought that Mother Goose Time was worth the money if I didn't get it for free.  I think this is an excellent question, and one that people probably want to know.

How Much Does It Cost?:
Mother Goose Time costs $75 a month for one child, including shipping if you buy it month to month.  If you can order and pre-pay ahead of time, you can save up to 15%, depending on how far ahead you pre-pay.  If you have more than one child using the curriculum it is only about $5 a month to add a child.  Many of the products provided cover the entire class, including manipulatives and story books.  The things that each child needs come packaged in their own bag for each child.

What I Think of the Curriculum:
The curriculum is great.  It is thorough and engaging.  It provides me with ideas and supplies to teach my son things I never would have thought to teach him, but will make him a very well rounded person.  He now talks about things he never would have talked…
