so, i love audrey hepburn. i know that’s such a typical girl thing to admit, but it’s true. she was elegance personified, a fashion muse and icon, beautiful inside and out. her tireless work with UNICEF is still admirable and inspiring. and, of course, her movies were and still are a delight.
she was also unabashedly girly-girly. two quotes of hers that i adore:
“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.”
“For Attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run their fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.
People, more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed. Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms. As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself and the other for helping others.”
