Audrey's Beauty Tips

"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."

— Audrey Hepburn

oh, i just love this!! have seen it several times, but wouldn't it be fun to frame -- with a pic of audrey herself -- and keep close at hand for a gentle reminder when we need it?

my upstairs bathroom is pale pink and adorned with framed black and whites of former leading ladies -- this would be a perfect addition!
