Audrey Hepburn

Our favourite quotes by Audrey Hepburn

1. “Life is a party. Dress for it.”

2. “I was born with an enormous need for affection, and a terrible need to give it.”

3. “To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.”

4. “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.”

5. “Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, it’s at the end of your arm. As you get older, remember you have another hand: The first is to help yourself, the second is to help others.”

Falling in Love

Finding your person…

I’ll be blunt if it’s not a f*%k yes, then it’s a no.

There is no perfect person but I do believe there is someone perfect for each person. Find someone who above all else is kind and makes you laugh. As time goes by other things may fade, but someone who has kind intentions and can make you laugh will always make your heart happy.

The truth is it takes work, it takes communication and it takes patience but wouldn’t you prefer to have those conversations with someone kind and funny?

Take your time, I promise your person is coming. I know that’s easy to say coming from someone very much in love. But I can assure you, I was very lost until I was found and it turns out we were exactly what we were both looking for.
