Day 14/ 30 things

A non fictional book.

I think i actually prefer non fictional books.

One of my favourites is How to be lovely: The Audrey Hepburn way of life by Melissa Helstern.

(Product description taken from Amazon)

A beloved icon who found success as an actress, mother and humanitarian, Audrey Hepburn perfected the art of gracious living. The Waifish star and muse of Givenchy, Audrey could be quite the sage as well, turning out insightful phrases about working hard, living well and ageing gracefully. Melissa Hellstern has collected a diverse range of bons mots from the star for this gorgeous little book. Enduring the challenges of womanhood - miscarriages, divorce and the balancing act of career and family - Audrey Hepburn exuded dignity and humility through her successes and failures, and women of all ages will find inspiration among these pages. More philosophy than biography, 'How to be Lovely' revisits the many interviews Audrey gave over the years, allowing us to hear her voice directly on universal topics of concern to women the world over: careers, love lives, motherhood and relationships. Enhanced by rarely seen photographs, behind-the-scenes stories and insights from the friends who knew her well, 'How to be Lovely' uncovers the real Audrey, in her own words. Audrey Hepburn perfected the art of gracious living and is an enduring, relevant and inspiring role model for women today.
