Hello my friends!

I apologize for not paying as much attention to my blog lately.  I recently spilled water on my laptop and it no longer works. Every four years, or so, that usually happens. My recommendation is learn from your first mistakes... in this circumstance I didn't. lol Anyways, life goes on and now it's time for a new computer:).
In the past month I have been seeing a lot of posters and mention of Audrey Hepburn in conversation. I didn't know much about her so I went to the library and bookstore to pick up some information about her life. To my discovery she was a woman that came from poverty, had a father that paid little attention to her, went through famine, and became a spokeswoman for starving children (UNICEF).  That is not the Audrey Hepburn I grew up knowing as a beautiful and poised actress who had everything. I guess you can't judge a book by it's cover, as they say. Audrey had a lot and gave a lot. What a wonderful example she was to others. Along with Audrey, I am very inspired by the woman in my own life. From all my aunts, grandmas, sisters, mother, and all other moms out there. To me, woman are strong warriors. They keep the family glue together, offer a shoulder to cry on, and a girlfriend to call with good news. Sending my love to all mothers.

PS. I strongly recommend reading "Audrey Hepburn A Elegant Spirit,"  written by Audrey's son.

BEAUTY TIPS from Sam Levenson to his grandaughter

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 his fingers through it once a day
For poise, walk with the knowledge you'll never walk alone

Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you'll find one at the end of your arm
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands: one for helping yourself, the other for helping others
Your "good old days" are still ahead of you, may you have many of them

xoxo, Mandy
