Ah, The Good Life

I Love these vintage Pepsi ads. Not only are the graphics gorgeous, but it's a great look into the past; what was it, eactly, that people thought constituted "the good life." I also like the fact that Pepsi is described as a "Refreshing without filling". I'm not sure what beverage fills you up, but now we know that Pepsi doesn't!

On a totally different note, please notice the "Top Mommy Blog" button in my sidebar. I'd love it if, after you look at these great ads, you'd vote for me. It's just a click and takes a second! Thanks in advance.

I Love her hat! She looks so effortlessly cool!

I wish I looked this chic and amazing while wrapping presents!

Her outfit is amazing! Look at the bow at the bottom of her fitted shirt. And look at her come hither expression and that great flippy red hair! Hubba hubba!

Today's people ARE wonderful.

She reminds me of Grace Kelly. Oh, to be this gorgeous on your wedding day!

This one is maybe my favorite. Not only is her outfit To Die as she does her Japanese flower arranging, but back then, Pepsi was slimming!

I'm a Pepsi person for sure and used to drink a lot of Diet Pepsi. But, when I figured out how bad aspartame is for us, I stopped drinking any diet drinks. I had a straw hat just like the one! The were available at the school May Fete every year. ;)

This is a fun post.

Hugs,
Lois

I know what you mean...me wrapping presents is not a sight anyone wants to see. However, I'm a bit concerned...is that a BIRD in a cage she's wrapping? Oy, where was PETA in those days? LOL!!!!
