The Nudge: My grandmother had a Pink Powder Puff similar to this one. I have fond memories of going into her room just so I could see it, smell it and touch it. It was so pretty and so feminine. I was drawn to it because of it’s color, it’s softness, it’s powdery smell, and most of all because it was her’s. So, when I came across this Pink Powder Puff top, it reminded me of her and her powder puff. To be able to surround myself in a gigantic Pink Powder Puff was like wrapping my grandmother’s arms around me. I miss her.
“Isn’t it bewildering how inane objects of admired family members haunt, inspire and shape choices we make in our lives long after those objects and people have gone.

It was so good, I had to incorporate it in my Nudge!
