This is one of my most favourite book, it has lovely pictures and quotes.

An easy reading book with some great facts and ideas.

A beautiful book by Audreys son.

-Audrey style:

A white plain shirt....tied at the waist
Black ballet pumps
A plain little black dress

-Audrey quotes:

Pick the day. Enjoy it - to the hilt. The day as it comes. People as they come... The past, I think, has helped me appreciate the present - and I don't want to spoil any of it by fretting about the future.

The best thing to hold onto in life is each other.

I decided, very early on, just to accept life unconditionally; I never expected it to do anything special for me, yet I seemed to accomplish far more than I had ever hoped. Most of the time it just happened to me without my ever seeking it.

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.

There are certain shades of limelight that can wreck a girl's complexion.

I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it's the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It's probably the most important thing in a person.

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.

My look is attainable. Women can look like Audrey Hepburn by flipping out their hair, buying the large sunglasses, and the little sleeveless dresses.

I never think of myself as an icon. What is in other people's minds is not in my mind. I just do my thing.

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.

Nothing is impossible, the word itself says 'I'm possible'!"

The most important thing is to enjoy your life—to be happy—it's all that matters.

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

If I’m honest I have to tell you I still read fairy-tales and I like them best of all.

Paris is always a good idea.

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It's the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows; the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.
