Blogs We Love: Scandalous Women

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!

      Makeup Morsels, I’m glad you enjoy her blog too. That’s what I did the first time I stumbled on Scandalous Women too. It is such a fascinating read, it’s hard to stop. And I love the way she’s writing, it feels like you’re talking to a friend. :)

    I am so with you… I am fascinated with stories from the past. I just finished reading a wonderful historical fiction titled, “Blood, Money, Power” by Michele Marie Tate that allows me to relive the folklore of the Hearst castle, along with the 1920’s wild and wicked ways- the dazzling lives of Hollywood’s legendary movie stars. I am now obsessed with anything to do with the Hearst castle and the 1920’s era.

      Ana, you’re welcome, I’m glad you like it too.

      And I agree, how people lived is much more interesting than wars and treaties.
