I Lived Like A GLAMOROUS 1950's HOUSEWIFE For 24 Hours

  • Published on Aug 2, 2017
  • I spent 24 hours like a glamorous 1950's housewife! I woke up early in the morning, got my self all dolled up and went off to the kitchen to cook my husband breakfast. Once he was off to work I had quite a large cleaning list to get through. 1950's housewives took pride in their homes and made sure they were spotless everyday. After that I went shopping and begin cooking! After everyone was fed dinner I had to do MORE cleaning before I could finally relax. This experiment was so fun to try out, I was not able to use my phone or social media for 24 hours! Would you try it out?!

    I will be 30 in January. All of my life I have been obsessed with the 1940’s, 50’s and 60’s. I work full time. I Have two children and a husband but I still do a lot of the things a 50’s housewife would’ve done. I just stumbled across your videos a day ago but have been very much enjoying them. Thank you and have a wonderful day.

    For rollers, you can try doing one half way up, then leave the maybe- 6/7 inches of your hair hanging and then go ahead and set another roller on top of it! Idk how it works on hair th a t long buT I’ve done it in manikins and it seems to sit pretty tight

    tip for the bandana, put your hair into a french twist, pin it, then allow the extra hair to be tucked into the bandana!

    Is that a hamper being used as a nighstand? I used my Mom's hamper from the 50's/60's (it looked nearly identical to what you have except it was white and had a stenciled floral design on the front) as a nightstand when I was a teenager. You just made me very nostalgic. :-)

    For your hair, you need to pin it up first really tightly and then put the bandana on!

    I am a teen and a teenage routine with younger, more meant for teens in the 50s outfits would be an amazing video!! You could also put your hair in a high ponytail because I think that was a hairstyle considered appropriate for teen girls back then :-) My hair is long and thick too so 50s hairstyles often don't work for me and I have found that a classic ponytail is the perfect fit

    They didn't wear heels all day, silly! They wore slippers in the house. Lol. I stayed with my grandmother alot, she was a 50's house wife she wore slippers in the house and only put shoes on when she left the house. She did however alot of the same things you do in your videos. She was amazing!

    I'm a new subscriber and I feel I have to comment. The reason why the 1950s housewives don't exist anymore is not just for finances (most cities are too expensive to live with just one salary), but because divorce rates are 50-60%. If a wife gives up her job and stays at home, she will pretty much be un-employable after a divorce. It is just a great risk for the wife. If you sign a pre-nup and it guarantees you a life-long income, then I say go for it. I totally see the appeal and I love your videos. I just wanted to leave this here for the young people who say they want to do this. In the 1950s, divorce was not as much an option as it is today. If you want to be real, you could do a video of a DIVORCED 1950s woman. Their life was not so glamorous I am pretty sure.

    I Could Not Imagen how you would react to my Stada Bapsha and Stada Goto's house. My Stada baba died like when I was in 3rd grade, and I don't remember my Gito. But it is filled with so much vintage stuff and old polish/Ukraine knick knacks. They both lived in a small area in I think penselvania. It was a factory area, where my Stada Gito worked in the factory, and My Stada Baba was a seamstress. I also think there is a moutian that was sort of had it's trees damaged from acid rain (That's what my mom told me) so now I Have all her old fabric too. And we are still cleaning it out(Once I found original Mac lipstick samples in a box of buttens).

    I’m 28 and my husband and I made the decision that I wanted to be a stay at home wife/mom since the beginning of our marriage and I don’t regret it. I’ve enjoyed taking care of my home , husband and kids and I plan on doing it for the rest of my life. We are traditional people and really love how the 50s was. Enjoyed this video! Great job!

  • WifeMomTeacherLife

    You are so right! Being a housewife/stay at home mom is so much work! I did it for 8 years, and then when my children were 4&8, I decided to go back to college. I'm currently taking 6 classes and student teaching and it's less work than when I was a stay at home mom. I cleaned house every day, from sun up to sun down. I took care of children, I made 3 meals every day and cleaned up after them. I'm much happier as a student, a mom, and a wife.

    Your hair should be in a bun. The ladies always kept their hair up. Hence, the comment, "Let your hair down" in almost all 40's and 50's era songs... :) Otherwise, OMG how cute are you!? Loved the video and what a great way to show how life was in that time period. :)

    Here's a pie crust recipe for you: (for an open-top pie, double for a pie that needs a top crust), a cup of flour, a stick of butter, a tablespoon of cold water. Freeze the butter, then grate it like cheese into the flour. Add the water, and maybe an extra tablespoon or two, until it all comes together like coarse crumbs. Get your hands in there, knead it until it becomes a stiff dough, and then wrap it up and refrigerate it until you are ready to roll it out.
