I have a confession to make: I am a beauty addict but that’s not my only passion. I am a history geek as well. While I’ve never cared much for wars and battles, I’ve always loved to learn how the people in the past lived and how things and societies changed overtime. After all, how can we understand today’s world if we don’t know how we got here? In particular, I’m very interested in the women that made history, most of which led very scandalous lives (well-behaved women rarely make history after all). So today, I bring you Scandalous Women, a blog run by the classy, smart and fellow history geek, Elizabeth Kerri Mahon.
From Cleopatra to Marie Antoinette, from Mata Hari to Coco Chanel, Scandalous Women has something for everybody. Elizabeth doesn’t update often but that’s solely because her post are extremely well-researched, which takes a lot of time. And they are written in a conversational, entertaining and engaging tone, not boring at all! In addition, here you can find reviews of historical movies and books as well as giveaways to win the latest biography or historical fiction tomes. Go check it out now!
