Billie Burke was the wife of Florenz Ziegfeld (Ziegfeld follies). She acted on broadway, film (like Dinner at Eight) and on radio (the Billie Burke Show), maybe best known as Glinda the Good Witch of the North in the Wizard of Oz. Here she explains what she says “Titian blondes” should and shouldn’t wear.

Excuse my basic white girl face 💪🏻👊🏻 Part of this process is setting small goals and accomplishing them. Little successes will lead to bigger ones. Weight will fluctuate and you’ll regret eating that burger-but don’t let it get you down. It’s all about motivating yourself to keep moving.

The Redhead Murders

The “Redhead murders” was a series of murders believed to be linked that occurred in various parts of the U.S. such as Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi Arkansas and Pennsylvania. Authorities believe the murders occurred from 1978 to the eighties, but some think they may have continued until 1992. Most of the victims found had red hair and had been abandoned along various major highways in the U.S. Most of the victims remained unidentified possibly because most of them were prostitutes estranged from their families, the fact that the bodies were disposed in a different state than the one the victim possibly lived in didn’t help. The authorities had two suspects in custody at one point, one of them was a thirty-seven year old trucker that had attempted to kill a woman with red hair by strangling her and then leaving her body next to a highway thinking she was dead, the other suspect was a thirty-two year old trucker who kidnapped and raped a woman in Indiana, she later managed to escape. Despite the evidence against the two men they were soon dismissed by the authorities. To this day the mistery of the “Redhead murders” remains, the authorities were never able to prove the existence of a serial killer and the real number of victims is unknown.
