Blood and Beauty
My latest guilty pleasure is a little television show called True Blood. I’m sure you’ve heard of it…it’s a sinful HBO series about the relationships between humans, vampires, and other fanciful creatures. I didn’t even get into it until last year (I was one of the late comers) but I had always heard people talking about it! One day I decided to get the first season on dvd….I was hooked! Talk about a juicy soap opera! And when I say juicy, I mean it literally….this show is bloody! Are you a “Trubie” (this is what they call fans of the show) too? Be sure to check out the video clip below!
A Dark Brew
Speaking of blood, did you know ages ago, blood was used as a beauty tool? Yes, as gross as that may sound, for one particular person of history, Elizabeth Báthory, blood was a key component of her anti-aging routine! Seems crazy, right? Well, not to her. She was a countess who lived in the late 1500s and early 1600s and was one of history’s first serial killers! She is accused to have killed over 600 young women and girls. Why would she (or anyone, for that matter) do such heinous things? Rumor has it she bathed in the [virgin] blood of her victims, believing it provided magical healing qualities and eternal youth. As you can see, the obsession with staying young started early in history. It’s still debated whether or not this story is actually true. This leads to the question….at what cost, beauty?
What sort of lengths would you go to for eternal youth? Do you have lines you simply would not cross? Want to hear even more about the vampiric countess? Click here to go to Trutv for more!
