I must admit to not really knowing much about Audrey Hepburn at all but looking at these photos, gosh, she was stunning. That is very clever - the 'impossible' to 'I'm possible'.

Have just started reading 'What Would Audrey Do?'. Interesting.
'Favourite colour - white. Favourite ice cream - chocolate'. Oh dear. Not a good combination. I know how long the white would last in this house with chocolate ice cream around. xx
