…to protect you from evil spirits.

As I continue to think of the things my grand-mothers said.

    I’ve never heard that one before ! By the way congrats on the feature in Russian Vogue. I’ll be practising my vocabulary reading you and Dasha’s interviews. This is one Vogue I’ll have to scribble all over with a highlighter and pen ;)

    my lola wouldn’t allow me to fall asleep with my hair wet-she firmly believed it was a bad omen :)

    My grandmother used to say that If I wear my clothes inside out, the weather will change the next day. :)

    Your Grandmother was probably right. Old people are full of wisdom, so I’m pretty it was a kind of essential tips;-)
    Lucky for having such a great person in your life.

    I am sure that you only attract what you give off of yourself. And if you want to make sure that the evil stays away from you, I recommend an evil eye bracelet;)

    Where would we be without all these wise women who came before us? Thanks for sharing the quote nana’s, and feel free to drop by my blog too, soon.

    Well, that’s what you do in Philippine mythology when you get lost in a scary trail. Wearing it inside out would allow you to go back to your trail that you were supposed to be on.
