100 year old Ruth’s Life and Style Tips

1.”I never go to bed with my makeup on. that is number one.At night you must let your skin breathe.”

2.”I use a lipstick brush to paint on my lipstick—It stays on longer that way. I can also use a lipstick longer than anyone else because I can dig into it.”

3.”Every night before I got to bed I use Elizabeth Arden’s 8 hour beauty cream on my lips. You must keep your lips moisturized.”

4.”When it comes to fashion you must be aware of your skin tone. You don’t wear orange lipstick with a red dress.”

5.”I make myself go out everyday, even if its only to walk around the block. The Key to staying young is to keep moving. You are never too old to exercise.”

6.”Invest in Quality pieces, they never go out of style.”

7.”Don’t look at the calendar, just keep celebrating everyday.”

8.”I dress up everyday and I don’t wear blue jeans. I dress up even to mail a letter, you never know who you will meet along the way.”

9.I have been active my whole life. An old Elizabeth Arden Ad said,”If you want to look like this when you are 40 start when you are 20.”

10.I wake up every morning and say, “This is the day the lord has made.”

I don't know her, but I love her.

Dug: I was hiding under your porch because I love you.


  1. She rocks! (and so do you!)
    Happy New Year.
    Love the zebra in boots.

  2. well she is downright awesome!

    i caNNOT STAND having dry lips. i have to have lipgloss on every second of the day, and i put burt's bees chapstick (or whatever they call it) on OVER AND OVER AGAIN throughout the night. yes, i am a nutter. but my lips are soft! :)

  3. Jane, I wish I could sit right down with her and hear all she had to say about her 100 years of life! Not only is she adorable...she is downright inspiring. I only hope that I can still see to put my lipstick on in a straight line and not have it plastered all over my face!!

    My grandfather lived to be 92 and I use to think about all the changes he saw in his lifetime and I found my self amazed. I can only hope that I can see half of what he saw before I am laid to rest.
